Most Overrated Songs by Popular Music Artists That Wrote Better Songs

These music artists are famous for songs that did not define them. They did write music that is good but was drowned out by the songs that used less effort.

The Top Ten

1 Loser - Beck Loser - Beck
2 Hey Jude - The Beatles Hey Jude - The Beatles
3 Wonderwall - Oasis Wonderwall - Oasis

I literally cannot stand this song, or the fact that Oasis has written much BETTER songs than this, but nobody knows them because they think of this whenever they think of Oasis! What the hell is wrong with everybody who thinks that songs like "Some Might Say", "Fade In-Out" & "Roll With It" are inept, instead turning their heads towards this stupid song?!?! It's effortless and uninspired, just accept it!

4 Should I Stay or Should I Go? - The Clash Should I Stay or Should I Go? - The Clash
5 (What a) Wonderful World - Sam Cooke (What a) Wonderful World - Sam Cooke
6 God Only Knows - The Beach Boys God Only Knows - The Beach Boys
7 Creep - Radiohead Creep - Radiohead
8 Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis
9 Sunday Morning - The Velvet Underground Sunday Morning - The Velvet Underground

I used to like this, but I now I just find it boring - RecklessGreed

10 Valerie - The Zutons Valerie - The Zutons

The Newcomers
