81Ozzy OsbourneJohn Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath ...read more.

Why is Ozzy on this list? He's one of the Gods of Rock and he's got many great albums/hits! I love Ozzy Osbourne! There is something seriously wrong with list. Ozzy shouldn't be here, he ROCKS!

Ozzy is proof that drug abuse kills brain cells.

He's a great lyricist, but is voice is godawful. Just because he managed to get some excellent other musicians together for an excellent metal band doesn't mean he's a good singer.

83Carrie Underwood

It's a real disgrace that Bob Marley, Prince, Adele, Whitney Houston are ahead of this overrated, banal, reality-show country singer. Real disgrace.

She doesn't write her own music, but if she did, it still won't be redeeming as the lyrics are terribly written. Her music revolves on basically three themes: Jesus, cheating, and cowboys. (How exciting! ) Not to mention she doesn't play an instrument. She is a talentless puppet of the record industry. Her popularity is a testament to both the sad state of music and the sad state of society. But honestly, do you get even remotely excited when she is about to perform? Because she is BASIC and BORING.

This lady has become a synonym for the word overrated. If you look at the compliments people say about her they always mention a) her looks, b)her faith, or c)that she is a "good person". Last one first: How in the world do you know that she's a good person? You are probably never going to meet her and neither am I. Maybe she is a good person. Or maybe she's a spoiled diva. I'll really never know and neither will you. OK, she's pretty. That has what to do with her singing? And yes, she mentions her faith often, which is good for her to do. As a country artist, it's also very smart for her to do. It doesn't change the quality of her songs, which are okay but not this greatest of all time baloney that I see written about her. Hey, I've read the Bible and there's nothing in there that says you have to love Carrie Underwood. Is Underwood overrated? Is the Pope Catholic?

She is pretty good but she is way overrated. She's made four albums, I think, and Top Tens has her as the number one female country singer of all time? Ridiculous. And unlike a lot of the people rated below her, most of her big songs have been written by other people, plus she doesn't play an instrument.

One of the most bland and generic singers on the face of the earth

84Bruce Springsteen

If you ever saw him in concert you would throw your overrated comments out the window. At 60, he was still putting on three hour concerts and had just as much energy at the end as at the beginning. He might be slowing down some now, but his body of work is brilliant. He's called the Boss for a reason.

His songwriting is also over rated. Three note one chord song... So boring. (Born in the USA) His voice has no tone and pushes it where it sounds horrible.

Over rated song writer too. Three note one chord song... so boring! (born in the USA)

85Billie Joe ArmstrongBillie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

I don't know why he is on here. Everyone knows he's brilliant.

86Ed SheeranEdward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

He is too overrated and so are his songs. I honestly don't think his voice is THAT good and how are his songs beautiful?

87TinasheTinashe Jorgenson Kachingwe, known professionally as Tinashe, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress and former model.

Why do people like him? He is not such a good singer as people say. And he does not even hold a candle to Michael Jackson. - cheesemaster

Why do I see him everywhere on this site? - InsertNameHere

89Chris Martin

Doing the same trash "happy-sad-love-life" with catchy piano intros and catchy solos (Violet Hill, Lost! ) and his voice that has nothing special with it.

How dare you put Chris Martin on this list! He is not overrated! He is very talented!

90Neil DiamondNeil Leslie Diamond is an American singer-songwriter and musician with a career that began in the 1960s.

I know people would probably think when I write this that I'm only putting him on because I don't like his genre of music. This is not true. The songs he sings would be fabulous if someone else (who could sing) sang them, like Mariah Carey or Michael Buble. His voice is shaky, and I don't know where he records his songs - must be somewhere that gets a lot of earthquakes. His voice has no interesting part to it. Coming from someone who plays 3 instruments and has been vocally trained, HE CANNOT SING. All my Dad's family loves him and it like torture at family get togethers. Mum and I go to the other end of the house.

93Janis JoplinJanis Joplin (1943-1970) was an American singer who rose to fame as the main singer of acid band Big Brother and the Holding Company. She was known for her eccentric hippie style and psychedelic rock music.

Look at me! I posted Janis Joplin! I want attention!

Janis? More overrated than Carrie Underwood? I just spit out my coffee...

Best female screamer of all time. she can make you grimace in pain. also has some good stuff too, though. another drug/alcohol statistic.

94Rick RossWilliam Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

Not really a musician and pretty bad but I guess used to be popular but I heard now is just going on tour as the opening act fore deadmau5

In Bugatti when he takes his shirt off ERR...
He raps about cool expensive cars when he can't fit in them.

95Bob DylanBob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

His singing isn't pretty but it's so unique that it just kind of grows on you. There's something honest about hearing the lyrics straight from the person who wrote them. No less an authority than Graham Nash (Hollies, Crosby, Stills, & Nash) said Dylan was absolutely his favorite songwriter and absolutely his favorite singer.

Whoever put him on this list is overrated.

Singing is not his forte, but SONG WRITING? The Best. Period.

Lyricist, yes. Singer? Give me an ice pick so I can puncture my eardrums.

96Andrea BocelliAndrea Bocelli, OMRI, OMDSM is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

Fake and overwrought. From the first note, I am shuddering.

100The WeekndAbęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Abel is my favourite singer EVER. He is NOT overrated. Maybe tracks like Can't Feel My Face (I like it, though) are mainstream and a tad overrated, but listen to Earned It, In The Night, The Zone, Wicked Games, Prisoner, and albums like Trilogy and Kissland. Pure talent, if you ask me.
