101MastodonMastodon is an American heavy metal band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in early 2000 and composed of bassist Troy Sanders, guitarists Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher and drummer Brann Dailor.
102Beastie BoysThe Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

The sad thing is that this was no doubt voted up by rap fans who will quickly say that Eminem is the best rapper of all time, seeing as there would be no Eminem without the Beastie Boys. The Beastie Boys also happened to release classic and influential albums that are only unappreciated because rap fans nowadays only listen to music 2 decades old and up and don't appreciate anything else. They are not overrated, not by a longshot.

103The White StripesThe White Stripes are an American rock duo, formed in 1997 in Detroit, Michigan. The duo consists of only a couple married at the time, Jack White, whose real name was Jack Gillis (songwriter, lead vocalist, guitarist, bassist and keyboardist) and Meg White (drummer and backing vocalist). After they ...read more.

Overrated as hell. They literally only released 7 Nation Army (Which, in my opinion is garbage. Gets worse when lyrics start)

104GorillazGorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

More like UNDERRATED. 22 years later and I still don't know a single person who has even heard of or heard any work from this talented group.

Have you heard these guys live? Seriously...

107The OffspringThe Offspring is an American punk rock band from Huntington Beach, California, formed in 1984. Formed under the name Manic Subsidal, the band consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Dexter Holland, bassist Greg K., lead guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman and drummer Pete Parada.

The Offspring are not overrated. Songs like Kids aren't alright, Pretty Fly (for a white guy) and Self esteem are some of the best punk rock songs ever made. - swagmaster97

108Dimmu BorgirDimmu Borgir is a Norwegian symphonic black metal band from Oslo, Norway, formed in 1993. The name is derived from Dimmuborgir, a volcanic formation in Iceland, the name of which means "dark cities" or "dark castles/fortresses" in Icelandic, Faroese and Old Norse.
109DisturbedDisturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren.

False metal band that makes songs that appeal to kids who think they are badass for listening to "metal." Calling Disturbed a metal band is an insult to the actual metal bands that create powerful music and not recycled garbage.

Everyone I Know Likes Disturbed, I don't even know why, music is the same after the album, believe 10000 fists, Indestructible and Asylum are exactly the same, PUMP this Excuse of a Band up to least #2

110CreamCream were a 1960s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton.

Cream overrated? We got one of the best guitar player of all time, one of the best drummer of all time and one of the best bass player of all time.

Overrated by the fact they almost didn't release a thing. But damn, they were good

I don't HATE these guys, but most of their songs are boring or dull. Michael Stripe has no power to his voice, and often drags down songs.

They have 5 good songs and those are all good. They lack out on other greats though.
1: Losing My Religion
2: It's The End Of The World
3: The One I Love
4: Everybody Hurts
5: Radio Free Europe

Here are some other songs you might wanna check out: Man on the Moon, Nightswimming, Don't Go Back to Rockville, What's the Frequency Kenneth, Drive, Driver Eight, Stand, Orange Crush, Bang and Blame,...

113R5R5 is an American pop rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2009. The band consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ross Lynch, Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch, and Ellington Ratliff.

I'll admit not a ton of people know who they are, but they get WAY too much credit as band by their fans, who insist on shoving their biased ideologies about how great R5 down your throat if you DARE "assault" them by saying that R5 sucks. They are the worst band ever, and get way too much credit for doing pretty much nothing, while there are people who work day and night to learn to play real instruments and really sing real music, but get absolutely no recognition. This band is one of a few that solidified my belief that music is never getting back to he standards that were set before autotune was invented. Auto-tune pretty much describes this band's "music" in a nutshell.

Prime example of a band that people either don't know or love way too much. I know this one girl who obsesses over their music. I'll say it now, compared to other artists in today's world, they are AWFUL. They make Limp Bizkit look like musical geniuses that should have won every award at the Grammy's. - DavidBondra

This band is so bad, that having any fans makes them overrated.

114Faith No MoreFaith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

They aren't overrated at all if anything they are the most underrated band ever. I'll admit they have strange songs but you rarely rarely will have any two songs sound alike plus they are the most versatile band ever and play music in any genre because they can pull that off.

Mike Patton is a great vocalist, But people are saying these guys are the best of all time? Give me a break.

115ManowarManowar is an American heavy metal band from New York City, New York. Formed in 1980, the group is known for lyrics based on fantasy and mythology.

Too many people over praise them. They ain't that great to me

116Bee GeesThe Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

Overrated but doesn't deserve to be on the list.
