141 Foo Fighters Foo Fighters Foo Fighters is an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of his previous band. The band consists of obviously Dave Grohl (lead vocalist, songwriter), Pat Smear (lead guitarist, pianist), Nate Mendel ...read more.

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.

142 Outlawz Immortalz

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

143 Barenaked Ladies Barenaked Ladies Barenaked 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.

144 The Ramones The Ramones The Ramones were an American punk rock band that formed in the New York City neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974. They are often cited as the first band to define the punk rock sound.

They are like American Rolling Stones but they are just a bit more undertalented. Also the most mainstream popish punk rock bands ever.

The ramones have plenty of flaws, but give them some slack because, as far as I can tell, they invented punk - RecklessGreed

145 Pantera Pantera Pantera 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.

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

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

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.

146 Soundgarden Soundgarden Soundgarden is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1984 by singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell, lead guitarist Kim Thayil, and bassist Hiro Yamamoto.

Who put this here? Soundgarden is a great band. They aren't overrated at all. I think they're kind of underrated. Just listen to badmotorfinger or superunknown. - Imreallyboredrightnow

147 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

I hate Pearl Jam. I cannot stand listening to Eddie Vedder. They definitely suck.

I disagree because they're my favorite band - jack2244

Proper grammar are good to use when posting... Also, Pearl Jam should be way higher on this list. The VS album was the start of their suck slope

148 Bee Gees Bee Gees The 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.

149 Megadeth Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. The group was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine's dismissal from Metallica.

Dave Mustaine is a much more better guitarist than a singer.

150 Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band formed in July 1967, in London. The band have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.

Even if they're overrated, Stevie Nicks is still my reward for best female singer. - Swellow

151 Iron Maiden Iron Maiden Iron Maiden are an English heavy metal band formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris. They were known for some big hits such as The Trooper, and The Number of the Beast, and as of 2015, the band sold over 90 million albums.

This is a joke, right? It has to be a joke. It is impossible to over rate this band. Bruce Dickinson is one the greatest singers of all time. He still has an amzing voice after decades of touring. Well written songs, talented musicians, still recording albums and touring to sold out areanas.

Sorry for the bad spelling

The best metal band to exist and people have the audacity to put it on this list? Opinions be damned.

Maiden is great and surely not overrated. Your argument is invalid.

Nowhere near as overrated as Metallica. Maiden shouldn't be on this list.

They're more underrated than overrated.

The father of awesome Scandinavian death metakl not overrated.
