Most Overrated Music Artists

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Miley Cyrus

Miley is SO overrated. She just complains about love, makes a no-sense song, and gets famous. At least she WAS a great artist. That was BEFORE she transformed into some singer who wears almost nothing and rants about exes. So original in this generation. (Sarcasm)

Definitely overrated by school girls. What happened to her? She used to be so young and clean then all of a sudden she transformed into this hideous twerking monster.

Average singers, at most. Because of their 'good looks' they are famous. Many people like them because they are seen as 'pop rock' when in actuality they sing mediocre pop music.

Not a BAD band by any stretch of the imagination, but really overrated. Their fan base is terrible. On this site they vote for Metallica in everything, even things like "best riff". Really other riffs are better, but they just vote for Metallica.

Very overrated band. - LedSabbath

I am a Metallica FAN, no jokes! When it comes to this list, hell yeah Metallica was a bit overrated. They are all over the other top ten lists mostly because of us, Metallica fans. Yeah, they are really great band with great line up too but most voted them because of their popularity, not to mention lack of knowledge about another bands or field of music.

Metallica is my number 1 favorite band but that doesn't mean they have to be top of the line in every single list. Most Metfan clearly doesn't understand that. Enough said.

By the way, Bieber, Miley Cyrus, 50 Crap should be placed higher, and Eminem is talented, not overrated. - Pyansickness

Once upon a time, they were the greatest metal band in the world. Unfortunately, such is no longer the case. It's a shame how they have fallen and how we still cling so desperately to the remains of a once-great metal monster.

Good Band. Just way too much overrated. Fan base thinks Metallica are gods. They need to wake up.

98Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
99Pitbull

Honestly, why no-one suggested this guy is ridiculous. His older music was better, but now his rapping is LITERALLY only bragging about what he has. Pitbull, or Armando, whoever you are. Nobody cares, rap about a BLT for all I care and stop bragging.
