Most Overrated Music Artists
The Contenders: Page 4
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!
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
If I hear the song Sugar on the Radio one more time, I will kill myselfV 1 Comment
I can't stand their music. I understand they sang about heroin and influenced a bunch of punk bands, but their music I find extremely grating and lou reed can't sing his way out of a douchebag.
How to become a rock legend: Write 45-second songs and repeat them for three to seventeen minutes while Lou Reed speaks the lyrics out of key.
She's way too overrated. She is one of the richest and most famous young singers and they only thing she has done in her career was just a catchy song ("Call Me Maybe") and then a bunch of pop garbage songs that also sound the same.
I'm just so surprised to see people like The Beatles, Elvis, Carrie Underwood, Britney and Madonna in this list and nobody admits that those are true artists making true music and they have so many great songs when that freak Carly Rae Jepsen had only one "cute" song.
She is just a feminine version of Justin Burberry with a little less of innovation.
If anything, they're underrated. I'm talking to their 70's albums of course...
The fact that it is the most known Japanese band in America doesn't mean they're the best.
Sounding and screaming like an animal does not make you popular or talented dude. The vocals are okay but the screams are horrible. Here's Dir en grey in a nutshell...
So kut so hi kut... Something in Japanese HUWE! I change the song when it comes to this part. The lead singer looks like about 55 even when he is 37 and sure is an ugly dude. Japan has better bands such as The Gazette, X Japan and Coldrain (Rather emo).
Many like this band but this band annoys me a lot - ronluna
I just don't see how special she is - Moorefamval
Her albums sound EXTREMELY alike it's not even funny. She has a decent voice.
People just like her because she can sing like Amy wine house she is know better than any other soul artist like Duffy or pamola faith I hope she dose not release any more musicV 2 Comments
Disturbed needs to be in the top 10 of this list.
They're the definition of overrated.
They're sellouts, not that they were ever good.
Everyone thinks they're good when they're actually crap.
The vocalist has no range, and the musicians (especially the guitarist, and drummer) have no creativity and those are the reasons why a lot of their songs sound a like.
Little 10 - 13 year old kids think they're "heavy", no they're not. They're not even metal, nu-metal is not metal.
Disturbed just sucks, and they need to go away! - Chris113
