81 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

Oasis is a mid quality band. They use too many simple chords. I could write way more complicated songs than Wonderwall in 5 minutes. By far too much overrated. And the fact they feel like if they were the next Beatles just irritates me. Overrated by fans and by themselves. And they are ASSES!

Just a Beatles rip-off. 0 creativity. Just plagiarizing 60's music. Mediocre music at its best.

The fact that they said Blur (a far more superior and talented band) should get AIDS and die is just terrible

82 Destiny's Child Destiny's Child Destiny'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

85 Jackson 5
86 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.
87 Vampire Weekend

They are pretty good actually, I think they're underrated

88 Styx

One good song/ Come Sail Away/ nothing more.

89 Dir en grey Dir en grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.
90 REO Speedwagon
91 Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

The biggest overrated band in this list. The music is average at best. I get it when my parents said that all rock and roll is about screaming into the mic... nothing like their days of real singing like Frank Sinatra, etc. But this guy has no real music in his voice. The scraggly screaming like Born in the USA is awful. He has a few catchy tunes but not to be considered GOAT like many believe. I also hear you get a lecture at his concerts. Just what I am interested in after I dump $150 on a ticket.

92 Sleeping 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.

93 Foreigner Foreigner Foreigner is a British-American hard rock band, originally formed in New York City in 1976 by veteran English musician Mick Jones and fellow Briton and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald along with American vocalist Lou Gramm.

So repetitive. Head Games and Cold as Ice suck although they are huge songs!

94 Kansas Kansas Kansas is an American rock band that became popular in the 1970s initially on album-oriented rock charts and later with hit singles such as "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind".

Good band. Carry On My Wayward Son is one of the most epic songs created.

Underrated if anything. Masque possibly the most underrated album ever.

95 System of a Down System of a Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American rock group from Glendale, California. The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. ...read more.

I personally think that system of a down is overrated but that is mainly because they are nothing more than a decent nu metal band and are nowhere near the uniqueness of 80's, 90's, and early 00's bands such as sonic youth, pavement, and my bloody valentine! And no I do not hate them - TheThomasThomas

Just because a song is overrated does NOT necessarily mean it's the best song. They make much better songs but people tend to follow the fad of only sticking to the overrated singles.

"Yeah, I love System of a Down"
"Oh yeah, what's your favorite song? "
"Chop Suey"
*Long and awkward pause

Chop suey is great but nowhere near their best work, how the hell are overrated? They don't make generic music, they shouldn't be at this no. Lol

Definitely not a bad band, but damn are they overrated.

97 The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.

The Velvet Underground are responsible for the creation of art and alternative rock. No band before them had a sound quite as unique as them. You can argue that they had only one great album. Okay, fine. However, that one album has had a massive influence on many artists. The saying is this, "Not everyone owned music by the Velvet Underground. However, those who did formed successful bands of their own." Alternative music was born here and while they didn't find much success, success does not always equal influence. Coldplay is more successful, but far less influential than the Velvet Underground. They're far from overrated. If anything, they're probably one of the ten most underrated bands of all time. - DavidBondra

I was once told that the Velvet Underground "invented" modern music, and I know many music critics would agree. They may not be so recognized by the mainstream, but among all the critics who remain convinced that the Velvets were nothing short of genius, they're extremely overrated

How are they overrated? Without them, we wouldn't know most of rock and indie bands.

Lol if these guys didn't exist, neither would your favorite band. So do me a favor and grow some ears.

98 HIM HIM HIM is a rock band from Helsinki, Finland. The band was formed in 1992 by vocalist Ville Valo, and bassist Mikko "Migé" Paananen, under the name His Infernal Majesty.

Lyrically whinny. Musically outdated.
If you're one of those people who haven't outgrown your early high-school emo phase, with songs like "Join Me in Death" from the hilariously titled album "Razorblade Romance", yeah... This band is for you.

99 A Tribe Called Quest A Tribe Called Quest A Tribe Called Quest were an American hip-hop trio that was formed in 1985, and was composed of MC and producer Q-Tip, MC Phife Dawg and DJ and producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad.
100 The Clash The Clash The Clash were an English punk rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk.

Yes. They are a bit overhyped. Like many guys of this era, guitarist Mick Jones wishes he were Johnny Thunders.
