Nothing special about this band yet so much love for blink

I hate Tom DeLonge. His voice is so bad.

42 Evanescence Evanescence Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

Evanescence is basically just Amy Lee, she was the only member to be on 2 album covers and most people seem to only like Evanescence because of Amy's oh so amazing voice. I've seen so many people talk about how they love because Amy Lees vocals are so beautiful and she saved their life! Sorry but a band is more than just vocals and honestly she's a good singer but not as great as everyone seems to claim. Their lyrics and music is just pretty generic, there are better symphonic rock bands.

If there is something wrong with that band is that Amy Lee is the only member that gets credits. Evanescence is my favorite band, but I think the other members need more credits. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Evanescence is the best band ever

46 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

They're pretty overrated to be honest, I'm trying to like them but... I just can't

They need to be much higher on the list. They're not even rock, they're pop

I only like one song- My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).

47 All Time Low All Time Low ...read more.

Never got the hype for this band. The same 3 chord pattern pop-punk that we've heard a thousand times over. Lost in Stereo, personally is the only song that kinda sticks out from the rest. But yeah, repetitive, necessarily bad but stuff we've heard a lot better before. - Sosbrad

48 Mötley Crüe Mötley Crüe Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars. V 1 Comment
49 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.

That comment makes no sense. Yeah Megadeth aren't Black Sabbath. So what? They're a completely different style of metal, and regardless, Megadeth are regarded as one of the all time greats of metal for a reason - they are.

People need to stop worshiping this band. They are no black sabbath

50 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer are an Australian pop-rock band from Sydney that formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012.

This is just false direction with plastic guitars. - malamJONES

51 Arcade Fire Arcade Fire Arcade Fire are a Canadian indie rock band based in Montreal, Quebec consisting of husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, along with Win's younger brother Will Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury and Jeremy Gara.

It was fun the first time. And maybe even the second time. But now the joke feels exhausted. Move on, folks... Move on...

52 Survivor Survivor Survivor is an American rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by Jim Peterik. The band achieved its greatest success in the 1980s, garnering many charting singles, especially in the United States.

This band are known for Eye Of The Tiger, not overrated. - malamJONES

53 Korn Korn Korn is an American nu metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David ...read more.

Honestly, I'm a fan of KoRn, but I can understand why they're considered overrated. They make good music, sure, really good music, but people who label KoRn as "the godfathers of nu-metal" and claim that their one of the best 90s metal bands really bug me. Lead singer Jonathan Davis even claimed in an interview that he hates the nu-metal genre, and never considered KoRn to be metal to begin with, and that his band was labelled as "nu-metal" simply because people didn't know what genre they fit into.

Ah, yes. The quintessential band from the late years of the 20th century and early years of 21st century for those posers (mainly teenagers) who felt they were so cool for listening to that music. What?! They're still active? Guess nobody cared anymore.

Why do people like this band so much? All they did was make Nu Metal which isn't even that good of music.

54 Anthrax Anthrax Anthrax is an American thrash metal band from New York City, formed in 1981 by guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker.

Overrated? No, they are underrated - DoroExploro13

55 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

one of the worst bands ever - how come Queen, Metallica and Led Zeppelin are on the list - best bands of all time - idolangelx13

Are Daughtry even rock? Most of the songs are just Kelly Clarkson-type songs (but sung from a male perspective) but engineered with loud rock guitars (their debut CD sounds too loud! ). What a sham.

57 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 don't think Pearl Jam is as good as people think. Their only good album, Ten, had a couple good ones on it. The rest of everything just isn't that good. I think the only one that is maybe a bit underrated is Mike McCready.

First of all, Ten is definitely NOT their only good album. It's their best, but apparently you haven't ventured past the mainstream stuff. Every song on Ten (except for Oceans) are some of the best songs of all time, but I see you're only judging the hits. Listen to more of their music and you'll see how painfully wrong you are. - Songsta41

Should be on number 1 of overrated bands. Can't stand the singers voice - ChatonNoir

58 Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), and Richard ...read more.

If you look into their more obscure albums, especially the ones with Syd Barrett, then you'd change your mind about them being overrated. The music they made during those early years were way ahead of their time, and criminally under looked.

Pink Floyd are NOT underrated. Unfortunately, a good portion of their music is. Albums like The Final Cut, The Division Bell, Obscured by Clouds are traditionally overlooked by fans.

I love them. I've listened to most of their albums and always thought they've had great music and talent. I do think they're overrated though. They're are a lot of bands that I think are better than them

Yes they are overrated. I mean they're not bad but there's no soul in their music, it's to polished and perfect. "Daddy music" lol - ChatonNoir

60 Rise Against Rise Against Rise Against is an American melodic hardcore band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes.

Rise against should be no where near this list! They are not even close to being as popular as they should be!
Just because they have a ton of good songs doesn't mean they're overrated!
