Yes and no

They're basically on par with any number of bands formed by teenagers who don't know what they're doing. Maybe they're slightly more interesting than the average one from a songwriting perspective, and they have nicer-to-listen-to voices, but most of those bands are not listened to anybody besides their friends and maybe the audience at their high school talent show. The biggest difference is that the Shaggs became cult hits, which probably has more to do with fetishization (oh, it's three teenage girls with old-fashioned hairstyles and ugly dresses!) than anything else.
So they're not the worst band ever or anything, but they're undoubtedly worse than any number of mediocre-to-okay bands that exist in New Hampshire.
