Worst harmonies I've ever heard. They all must be tone deaf.

This band is great. They should not be on this list. - Rambles

They suck they are boring and also they suck

Four hours of tuning up night after night.

62Pierce the VeilPierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

PTV is a talented group, they just get hate because they attract the stereotypical "scene" kids as fans.

The only famous song for this band is, king for a day.. kellin quinn make it famous with his amazing voice

PTV is a talentless group, their music sucks, emo fanbases, and horrible members that came from the highway where a lot of accidents happened.

I love this band! Why are they even on this list?!

64Arctic MonkeysThe Arctic Monkeys, otherwise known as the Death Ramps, are a British indie rock band formed in 2002 in Sheffield, England. The band consists of Alex Turner (lead vocalist, songwriter, electric and rhythm guitarist), Jamie Cook (electric and rhythm guitarist, songwriter), Matt Helders (percussionist, ...read more.

Good band but overrated! They have done some really good songs but I can't listen to an album without skipping quite a few tracks. All hyped up!

Arctic Monkeys are ok, but there music has become more bland these past few years. I think that Arctic Monkeys have lost their 'fun' that they had back in their first two albums. However, this favored for them because they became much popular with their album AM. - swagmaster97

AT LEAST. No one seemed to agree whenever I called this band overrated and dull.

Overplayed mediocre rock.

65Lamb of GodLamb of God is an American heavy metal band from Richmond, Virginia. Formed in 1994, the group consists of vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler.

Let's face it, they became huge overnight only because metal hammer included them in one of their issues. Other than that, 3-4 cool songs and there rest is pop history -. -

Lamb of God is good, but they're not quite the second coming of Pantera that everyone tries to make them out to be.

66KornKorn is an American nu metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David ...read more.

Not my favorite, but not overrated.

All they did was make nu metal (one of the worst metal genres ever in my opinion) yet they're so liked by everyone else. I can understand why but it's hard not to be mad at them for making a genre that lacks substance and will eventually fade into obscurity in the next few years.

Why do people like this band so much? All they did was make nu metal which everyone hates (including me). Plus, their first two albums weren't really that emotional or heavy to me, at least in my opinion.

Terrible overrated band that no one will remember in the next decade or so.

67The Beach BoysThe Beach Boys are an American rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

Brian Wilson did things in the studio, with instruments, voices and vocal arrangement that had never been done before. Every band since has used all or some of his technique. He did it first on Best!

You know I used to hate the beach boys but now I o enjoy many of their songs. They're not my favorite band but they are pretty talented. And to the person who wrote the comment about them plagiarizing all their songs, it was one song.

Overrated? They are more of underrated. - zxm

Generic pop. Zero talent.

68EXOExo is a South Korean-Chinese boy group based in Seoul. Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2011, the group debuted in 2012 with twelve members separated into two subgroups, EXO-K and EXO-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively.

Every fan-service boy/girlband has their overreacting fans. I'm talking about those Korean groups. but I've seen exo before and I'm a man, I'd say they're not as bad as the other boyband, but still.. maybe it's the media or their face-first-before-talent-fans that make this band overrated

What the.. ? Why is this band on the overrated list! I guess people just can not understand us so called Outcasts but that does mean you can hate on the songs we like. I am not implying for some of these good songs be put on the good list but I guess other people have different taste in music. I do think that Justin B, Miley Cyrus and all the annoying singers should be in this list. Our opinions are so overrated.

Anyways I love A. A hope you guys the best. -ARF

They are whiny scene kid garbage with some of the most generic songwriting in existence. End of story

Sounds like a bad porno name instead of a band

One of the staples in the metalcore genre. Good band.

70Falling in ReverseFalling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

Sucks ass... Your basically scene queens if you listen to this.

72Sleeping With Sirens

Untalented musicians = unaware fans

Not a bad band. Yes, Kellin Quinn does sound like a girl, but I think the issue with SWS is more so them being marketed as a metalcore/post-hardcore band and not actually being one.

73Motley Crüe

To the second comment, then listen to their songs there not bad kickstart my heart is great

I've never understood their appeal

Home is really good a and Dr feel good is catchy, but the rest of their music is crap

74Rise AgainstRise Against is an American melodic hardcore band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes.

What the hell is the deal with this list. There are too many rock bands on here. You can't listen to rock without one band you like being on here. I didn't even know Rise against existed until a few years ago. How is this here?

75Destiny's ChildDestiny's Child was an American girl group whose final and best-known line-up comprised Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams.

I hate their music. Always have. It's just not that great.

No, it is great. People only seem to hate them because Knowles got the attention. - Swellow

They are pretty repetitive, but honestly if you could change the landscape of hardcore music with every album you release, you can be seen as overrated

Their music is bland and repetitive

77MuseMuse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, ...read more.

This band is unique. Their songs that get a lot of radio airplay are no questions asked overrated songs (Uprising, Madness, etc.) They're great, I love those songs, but they're certainly overrated songs. However, if you explore outside of those songs and listen to Reapers, Bliss, Hysteria, Knights of Cydonia, Stockholm Syndrome, Assassin, The Handler, Supremacy, and Animals, you'll realize that they have an extremely underrated side to them as those songs completely slaughter their radio-friendly songs yet not many of them are radio staples. You also have to remember that Matt Bellamy and Chris Wolstenholme are no questions asked two of music's best musicians for their instrument. And Dominic Howard ain't no slouch either, he's extremely underrated as a drummer if you ask me as he has some great transitions that should not be overlooked. - DavidBondra

I like this band, really. I just can't get into the vocals. But I do really like the instrumentals in most of their songs, and Absolution and Black Holes And Revelations are both good albums. I just can't see them being ranked one of the best alternative bands ever. - UltraFX

Don't know a lot about Muse, but they are not overrated. And to think that people compare them to utter crap that is Queen... Blasphemy

This band is awesome!

78KeaneKeane are an English rock band from Battle, East Sussex, formed in 1995. The group currently comprises Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes, Jesse Quin and Tom Chaplin.

If I'm ever in the mood to slit my wrist's I'll listen to keane.

I actually think they're kind of underrated.

79Simple PlanSimple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

When you look up "Whiny" on Google, one of the results is Simple Plan's homepage. No joke, try it out.

They're like a crappy mix of Linkin Park and Blink-182.

Welcome to my life and perfect would be pretty good if they had a decent singer

Simple is damn right. - swagmaster97

80PanteraPantera was a Heavy Metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Dimebag Darrell and drummer Vinnie Paul. The group got into mainstream after changing from Glam Metal to Groove Metal. The band's most successful album is "Vulgar Display of Power" . ...read more.

Pantera helped change the heavy metal landscape. While Far Beyond Driven is no questions an overrated album, their influence on the guitar play and vocals and lyrical themes cannot be overstated. - DavidBondra

Who can call these guys Overrated if Dimebag Darrell can SHRED a solo into pieces

Dimebag Darrell is the best guitarist of all time. Phil Anselmo was extraordinarily talented. Go listen to the songs Floods, Cemetery Gates, Suicide Note pt. 1, The Art of Shredding, Physco Holiday, and Hollow. Such a versatile band; and, in the opinion of myself and many others, the best ever.
