Most Overrated Bands of All TimePlantIsGod

They are pretty good actually, I think they're underrated
One good song/ Come Sail Away/ nothing more.
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.V2 Comments
So repetitive. Head Games and Cold as Ice suck although they are huge songs!V1 Comment
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.
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? "
*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.V4 Comments
Tom sawyer is an overrates song, but the band? Absolutely not! Those who have voted have probably never listened to any of Rush's epics from A Farewell To Kings or Hemispheres. They barely get any radio play and they don't sell much, so they can't even be called overrated. Plus they are the most musically talented band to exist
I've found that some fans of Rush become so enamored by this band that they become musical snobs and ridicule other forms of music and bands they see as not as superior. That's the height of arrogance in my opinion. Rush is good and they have good music but to take the opinion that something basic and straight forward has no musical merit is just narrow-minded.
I listen to other music BESIDES Rush. Also, it's not really the fans that are snobbish. It's just that not many people know this band. Besides, I just love the band a lot. - MusicalPony
Definitely not an overrated band they are the best you can get when I comes to classic rock. whoever put them up here as overrated surely does not know great music when they here hear it, and last of all, they are a three man band, they sound pretty damn good for a 3 man band I have seen the 21 times and I will see them as many more times as I can
The person who put this on here, has obviously never heard 2112. It's an amazing song. - NightfireV10 Comments
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.V2 Comments
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.
Yes. They are a bit overhyped. Like many guys of this era, guitarist Mick Jones wishes he were Johnny Thunders.

Last time I checked George Michael is one person, not a bandV1 Comment
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 terribleV3 Comments
