Repeating the chorus over and over does not make you talented.

I'm sorry but these should be in the top 20. I completely respect Dave Grohl and the boys but their music is just so bland and dull and boring. Their early albums were really good and deserve praise but right around "in your honor" they started becoming just plain old boring. All the songs sound like the most cliche rock song ever. It just seems like now when Dave writes a song, it's for the sake of writing a song. It doesn't feel like there's anything special in them anymore. Another thing is Dave Grohl himself, don't get me wrong I have loads of respect for the guy, he is very very talented, started Foo Fighters at a rough point in his life and is great with fans and hardworking. But all this recognition has gotten to his head. He's not necessarily "up his arse" but he knows that everyone loves him and he'll do anything keep that reputation. To finish it off, very talented people, used to be something special, Now? Just a Band writing the same old songs again and again.

139Outlawz Immortalz

They are overrrated! Without 2Pac (R.I.P.) nobody would even know this band.

140Barenaked LadiesBarenaked Ladies is a Canadian rock band. The band is currently composed of Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson, and Tyler Stewart.

To be overrated, they have to be rated highly. I think most have forgotten about them by now.

Don't blame on me but I don't even know this band, so I don't see whats overrated about it lol

The last time I even heard this band mentioned was several years ago.
