Quick question, are hidden <div> tags considered bad?

That would depend upon your definition of bad.

I use hidden divs all of the time, although the div usually becomes visible when the user performs a specific action.

Similarly, if I have a page where javascript is required, I will create a div with content that says "javascript is required", then on page load, I will use javascript to hide the div. If the user's browser has javascript enabled, then the div will never be visible and this is a good thing.
