If you like talent you will hate this band

They were once good, but then they discovered the joys of auto tune and sold out

65Carly Rae JepsenCarly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer and songwriter from Mission, British Columbia, and later based in Vancouver.

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.

66GenesisGenesis are an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey in 1967. The most commercially successful and long-lasting line-up includes keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins.

If anything, they're underrated. I'm talking to their 70's albums of course...

67Cyndi Lauper

72Dir en GreyDIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

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).

78DisturbedDisturbed 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.

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
