Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

Why is this song so popular? It is absolutely horrendous, with an awful chorus that sticks in your head in the worst way possible and a hilariously terrible attempt at rapping. There is nothing good about this song, yet it is somehow a huge hit. If 95% of the population hated this song, the remaining 5% would still easily justify calling it overrated.

First off, who names a song party rock anthem? Second off, who names a band lmfao? I never saw how this song became the biggest hit last summer. It has no flavor or substance - queen11

Probably the only good song by a band called, "LMFAO? " What kind of name is that? I like this song, but it's not he absolute best I've heard.

23Single Ladies - Beyonce

If you hate it then you should've put a lid on it!

Hey Kanye your girl Beyonce created on of the worst songs of all time!
Of all time!
Not to mention the video is really stupid. She has no lyrical depth whatsoever with this as a prime example of just how shallow she is.

Annoying, this deserves to be one. - LukeTargaryen

24Rolling In the Deep - Adele

I've kept hearing this song on the radio and on T.V. and no one will shut up about it. Same thing goes for Someone Like You.

HOW DARE YOU! This song is amazing and got Adele, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of our era, the attention she deserved. But everyone gets their own opinion, I guess.

This was probably the single most annoying song I have heard on the radio. they literally played it once every 25 minutes. I'm like, who actually LIKES this? The singing is atrocious, the song puts me to sleep, and I practically memorized this song caus I heard it so many times.
Two words: Truly Annoying

25Material Girl - Madonna

Not deserving. Ever seen the video?

26Bennie and the Jets - Elton John
27Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

Maybe once Robin Thicke hits puberty this song will be okay. Probably not. Also, who was dumb enough to put Smells Like Teen Spirit, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine, and Bohemian Rhapsody on here? - chris.cg.102

Most popular song of 2013 is so annoying and there are better songs this year.

I still don't understand how a song that took 30 minutes to make got so popular. The song is a plague.

My mom does not let me listen to this song - mayamanga

28Lose Yourself - Eminem

Number 10 on Best Songs Of All Time? If that isn't evidence that Eminem is overrated, I don't know what is! - yaygiants16

This song sucks compared to Cinderella man or not afraid

This song is overrated. And that means something's considering I'm an eminem fan. Seriously, not afraid and kings never die are 10x better than this

29Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Seriously, what's so special about this garbage? Except that two famous sweepers are carrying it

You may think it's garbage because you don't know the storyline. That's why people don't like All About That Bass - AlphaQ

Eminem still is the best. Though I think Rihanna ruined it. Eminem still covered some of it to good.

Yeah I really don't like this clown or his music. Rihanna on her own is good though.

30Heart Attack - Demi Lovato

Just about any Demi Lovato song is overrated if its rated at all.

I get a heart attack just from hearing this piece of junk

31Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

It's a great song, but come on. It has been overplayed time and time again being features on so many movies, and I personally think that it isn't even journeys best work

Annoying song relegated to bars where drunk girls scream along.

I used to really like this song, but as others have said, it's been overplayed.

32Barracuda - Heart

One of the few groups where women really shine and rock hard, why do they get so much hate? Is it purely sexism?

I love this song and it shouldn't be on here! Classic rock forever! - RiverClanRocks

Top 10 Heart songs that are far worse:
10. Stranded
9. There's the Girl
8. nothing' at All
7. What About Love?
6. Who Will You Run To?
5. All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You
4. All of Magazine (first release)
3. Never
2. These Dreams
1. This Man is Mine

Everybody says this song is underrated but I think it's overrated. - doodie

33Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns n Roses

Overrated and overused. I hear this song from the radio almost everyday. I mean; this song is only composed of 3 chords and Slash admitted he was clowning around when this song was created. In other words, this song is a joke from the start. Listen to something else for a change. - aeromaxx777

This was #6 on list of best songs of all time on this site. It's a cool riff and it's kinda catchy but SIX all time? It's not even the 6th best Guns N' Roses song, and Guns N' Roses are overrated to begin with. Everything bad about 80s rock is here: hair metal, Robert Plant-wannabe-vocals, repetitive riffs, and lame power ballad vocals.

I like the intro but the words and voice is just rubbish, stairway to heaven is not overrated, which one of you idiots made this list

Carry on my wayward child is the only song I like from the 80's

35Firework - Katy Perry

Honestly, I can write better lyrics. Why do people like meaningless music? And an annoying, racist, homophobic, religious fanatic person to boot?

Besides, songs like November Rain shouldn't be above crap like this. A song like November Rain actually has MEANING

I know someone with a terrible and racist voice, but I could put his singing over Firework any day.

36We Cant Stop - Miley Cyrus

Don't even get me started on this one...

This song fails to be a party song and is a bad song in general. If you want TRUE party songs then go listen to No.5 and Everywhere I go by Hollywood Undead.

WHAT IS THIS?!? Shes like, "Lets make a HORRIBLE song about partying! [through in the drugs to]. STOP Miley!

It's so slow and boring and fails to be a party song. not to mention its produced by mike will

37Grenade - Bruno Mars

Pretty overrated song, although there is a band called R5 that stole this song's intro and used it in one of their songs. It's called (I Can't) Forget About You. I don't like this song, but Mars should have sued them for however much money they made off of that song. - therootbeer

It might not be the best of Bruno Mars but not overrated! It is quite nice to listen.

It is too overrated! Overrated does not mean bad. When will you learn that?

That's his best song, if anything Talking to the moon should be here. - LukeTargaryen

Someone hand him a grenade already so we can all get some piece.

38The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

I like this song, but I do think it's overrated. - funnyuser

This song ruined my childhood because when I was 9 I heard the part of the song that says" I met a really nice girl had some really nice sex"

39Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin

I am utterly spalttergasted that this is here. do people even listen to bobby darin?

40Imagine - John Lennon

Ok which of you monkeys got enough trauma to the head to actually put Sweet Child o' mine, Bohemian Rhapsody and Stairway to Heaven on this list, you all need to get shot in the head with a shotgun to finish the job, do you know what good music is? Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the best and most unique songs around, Stairway to Heaven is a masterpiece, seriously, someone try to play the solo I dare you, and even if Slash was messing around, its still better that Lennon trying to write music, lets face it his best years were with the Beatles and all his other stuff is crap,

Would actually think more of this self righteous Muppet if he had in fact admitted to the world that a six week old Baboon wrote this song, but no, he has to drag out his tirade of humiliation on all those people all over the world that call this a masterpiece! What a callous sense of humour this man had.

Musically, the piano riff is quite good and has substance but lyrically, it's a hypocritical song which doesn't deserve the attention it gets.

Not even that good.
