Most Overrated Music Artists
The Contenders: Page 3XW
Their music is really dry and tasteless not much feeling to it. I find it depressing when I listen to their music, in my opinion they are seriously overrated as a band and as musicians. Kurt Cobain is not that great of a guitarist (junkie, tried to commit suicide 5 times by intencional overdose, finally doing it by a shotgun to the head and many other things that caused me a terrible impression), Krist Novoselic is an average bassist (but has a very boring style, doing everything that the guitar does), and then there's Dave Grohl. Out of those three Dave is the only one that has my respect he is an amazing drummer. Nirvana and the rest of the grunge movement killed thrash metal just when it had become popular and had taken down the travesti glam metal movement (this is not intended in an offensive way, I am only supporting my opinion)
If all the people in the world had a good taste in music this wouldn't have been here in this list not even at 47.
Nirvana is the best. Kurt Cobain is great with the grungy vocals, Dave grohl and krist novoselic are great with drums and bass too.
Although half of Nirvana's fans are posers buying Nirvana t-shirt and hitting the streets but when you ask them they say "no I just like the shirt" exc...
Nirvana is not overrated as you think it is. Don't believe in those posers.
This band really sucks. Their are very popular in this site. On the best progressive albums they have 2#! And in best bands of all time their have... 1#! People what is wrong with you?
Wouldn't call them overrated. Everyone knows they suck.
They suck but Nirvana is no where near as bad as Pixies
But I have to admit, Side of a Bullet is a pretty good song. - InsertNameHere
Worst rock band everV2 Comments
Glam rock is awful.
Strutter is good... And that's that.
Gene simmons is a huge douchenozzle too
This is actually one of the few metal bands that I enjoy
Voted over classics like the Pixies and the Grateful Dead on my list. Why? - InsertNameHere
They're a bit overrated and deserve to be at a higher spot on this list..
This band is too overrated WAY TO OVERRATED! - spodermanfan1000
LP is overrated! - chirkoman
Laruku USED to be... that's all.
Good band, spirit dreams inside
They used to be musicians... Now they're only aging sellers... - alexa
In my opinion, his music might not sound like anyone else' on the radio, but most of his songs just sound like a different version of "The Hills" to me. I don't discredit this guy and whatever he's done, I just think he should do more in terms of creativity and originality.
I can't believe they achieved mainstream success with such plain vocals. The bass alone cannot create the band
The first time I saw a band photo of Slipknot I thought they were some Gwar style comedy metal band who were making fun of wannabe-tough guy nu-metal. With the masks and the 9 bands members I thought their was no way this band was serious, it had to be a joke.
But no, they were actually a real band.
In my opinion, Slipknot is not a good band. But somehow, everybody is talking about them. I don't know why- They are very over-rated.
Despite fantastic tracks such as Dancing Queen, Knowing Me Knowing You, The Winner Takes it All and much more, I don't think the famous four of Sweden should be able to say that they've sold over 300 million copies of material. And I don't think that they're a bad group by any stretch of the imagination, it's just they're a group who shouldn't be on a list of best-selling music acts in history (alongside The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Queen, Madonna). And once again, it's not because they're music is bad, the word "overrated" just implies something is more noteworthy then it probably should be, and ABBA are no exception. But! ABBA are one of the best acts ever in music, and will probably survive for generations and generations to come. So ABBA, although you may not have deserved all of the success of your received, Thank you for the Music!
