YMMV / Whitesnake

  • Critic-Proof: While a lot of other bands known as playing Arena Rock have gotten mixed to negative reviews yet sold well, Whitesnake has zig-zagged this trope, with their 80s work often regarded by critics and the general public as hard rock/heavy metal classics, but their 70s and 90s-onwards work being a different story (yet still having a quite a lot of strong defenders). Throughout their history, though, they've sold pretty well and been massive draws live.
