Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

21 Friday - Rebecca Black Friday - Rebecca Black

This song is overrated in a sense that it gets too much credit for it being hailed as the "worst song ever made" when it deserves nowhere near that title. And I've heard worse songs than that such as "Stupid Hoe" by Nicki Minaj for example which is just tuneless and repeats itself over and over again in my opinion. As for "Friday", I admit that it's not a great song (just a good party song) but at least it has some sort of melody unlike "Stupid Hoe" and is far from the worst song ever that so many people make it out to be and credit it as.

This is so god damn stupid, this song really annoys me. How did she get famous for this piece of $@! %. How did this song ever get airplay? I believe EVERYONE else on the planet could make a better song than this trash.

Even with all the haters, it's still overrated thanks to the small amount of people that hate it.

An annoying song but trust me Stupid Hoe is much worse. "It's Friday, Friday, gtta get down on Fri-daaay." or "You a stupid hoe, you a you a stupid hoe." Which is honestly worse?

22 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

The song is (or was. Nobody remembers it nowadays) overrated by the fact people didn't know other sad songs that were waaay better

By no means a bad song and it definitely should have been at least nominated an Oscar for Best Original Song for the 2016 Awards.

But even then, I'd consider the song overrated. It's literally played EVERYWHERE to the point where the song starts to lose its novelty and just becomes a bore. And speaking of its subject matter, great tribute to the late Paul Walker (RIP), but I'd rather go for "So Far Away" by Avenged Sevenfold. - CrimsonShark

23 Heart Attack - Demi Lovato Heart 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

24 Crank That - Soulja Boy

Nobody likes it, therefore its not over rated

All the idiots tried to look cool dancing to it and it got big and soulja boy got 15 minutes of fame, and now works at burger king

Pure cancer. One time I saw a guy dabbing to this song, and he called it a "classic". I think I lost brain cells from that statement.

25 Rolling In the Deep - Adele Rolling 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

26 Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO Party 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.

27 Single 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

28 Somebody That I Used to Know - Gotye Somebody That I Used to Know - Gotye

Seriously? This song is much better than all the meaningless Nicki Minaj and
One Direction songs that get much more attention than they deserve...

I Like This song my mom loves it. Way better than Everything at Once

29 Poker Face - Lady Gaga Poker Face - Lady Gaga

I can't stand this song it actually sucks. So overrated

Not deserving. Ever seen the video?

31 Chop Suey! - System of a Down Chop Suey! - System of a Down

I love System of a Down. They are true musical geniuses. However, everyone thinks that this is their best work. Although the song is good and the ending is brilliant, it really isn't great. It doesn't really fit in with their group. I can think of 10 songs by System of a Down that I would rather listen to then this one. - Potato1029

I don't see why people like this song in the first place. It's just shouting and soft singing combined. - Songsta41

32 Blank Space - Taylor Swift Blank Space - Taylor Swift

I remember back in November through February when I heard this getting played on the radio every 30 minutes. I had to change the station every time it came on.

Overrated! Overrated singer! Overrated music video! - xXLittleQueensXx

Yes! So over rated! This is the song that made me start hating taylor swift!

This song is so overrated and I hate it.

35 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke Blurred 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

36 Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose 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 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

This song sucks compared to Cinderella man or not afraid

37 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem Love 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.

38 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Don'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.

39 Master of Puppets - Metallica Master of Puppets - Metallica

No, this song isn't even overrated. You want an overrated Metallica song? Look at Enter Sandman or Nothing Else Matters. Master of Puppets is by far the best Metallica song and the best metal song of the 1980s, period, end of discussion.

I like a lot of Metallica songs but this one sucks and is easily my least favorite. The chorus is so so bad
