Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

TheGreatest

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41One - Metallica

This is a great song! Kirk Hammett can destroy the directioners and Belibers with his solo!

Nobody can say "Metallica sucks because they play satanic music" UNLESS YOU'RE A BELIBER

I hate this song this should be 1 gosh I wish this song never exist and this Is popular bull j hate this song definitely video these idiots wine wah I need help ITS STUPID

I know everyone has a right to have an opinion, there fore, here is mine. Your opinion sucks. This song is an absolute masterpiece. What is bad about this song? Absolutely nothing. - Alpha101

42Royals - Lorde

I don't understand why everyone is all like " ROYALS IS LIKE MY FAVORITE SONG" and how it's even "real music." Like come on there is way better songs too. This didn't even deserve to be #1. Same with Roar.

Royals is Extremely overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193

I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE this song! From the other stuff I've heard from Lorde, I can easily say that she will be an artist that will make no good songs in my book.

The snapping in this song is like Chinese water torture to my ears.

43Blank 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.

44Watch Me - Silento

Now watch me whip? Now watch me Nae Nae? Its like a conversation between a horse and its rider. The rider says to watch him whip and then the horse says to watch him Nae Nae.

I do not le this song whenever I tried listening to good music it put this and everyone starts whipping Ugh

45Imagine - 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.

46Ur So Gay - Katy Perry

A song that promotes transphobia and homophobia. I don't care if this was a "joke," it's equivalent to tasteless, racist jokes shouted by an angry bigot

Katy Perry is super racist. "your So Gay", that's a bad thing, that's like rudely saying someone is so homosexual.

Only now have I heard of this. I hate homophobia

How is this overrated?

47Thiller - Michael Jackson

People just love to try and take Michael down a notch. He was the greatest entertainer the world has ever known. Absolute perfectionist

This song is nowhere near overrated or underrated. - malamJONES

Overrated just because of the video.

48E.T. - Katy Perry
49Cheerleader - Omi

This deserves to be in the top ten. The singer has one of the most annoying voices ever, and the lyrics are lackluster. The only good thing about this song is the beat, and that doesn't really help its case much.

So boring! I don't even know how this hit number 1!

50Disturbia - RihannaV1 Comment
51American Idiot - Green Day

This song is amazing! I hate people!

52Gentleman - PSY

When I saw Gangnam Style, I thought, pretty good. Don't see where PSY could go wrong. Then I saw this, and thought, yeah, he's lost it. - PositronWildhawk

He later made Hangover and it's much worse! Not saying this song is good. - SelfDestruct

53Ironic - Alanis Morissette

Not ironic, more so coincidence. Honestly, overrated song by Alanis Morissette. Also really overdone on my local radio station (alongside To The Moon & Back by Savage Garden) which furthered my dislike of the song.
If anyone knows where To The Moon And Back is, tell me.

54Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

Evanescence is a great band. And I understand that a lot of people love this song (I do like it also). However, I don't get why this song gets so much praise. I mean, I see that song getting a lot of views on YouTube and being number 1 on lists of "best evanescence songs" all around the internet (even on TheTopTens). There is a lot of songs from that band that deserves more praise than this song (The Other Side, Like You, Your Star, Going Under, My Immortal (my favorite), Everybody's Fool, Lithium, Sweet Sacrifice, Call Me When You're Sober, etc). Overrated doesn't means bad, it's just that it gets too much fame/praise. I like that song but really, better than My Immortal, Going Under and Everybody's Fool? Never. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

This song is good, but it will never be as much of a masterpiece as My Immortal.

Never understood how anyone could like this song.
It's absolutely overrated. Sounds like an Avril Lavigne song.

57Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
58Champagne Supernova - Oasis

Michael jackson can't be in this list

59Viva la Vida - Coldplay

this is a song from a rock band. but is this a rock song all i could hear was the piano coldplay has better songs than this

I don't like Cold Play, but for this, X&Y, Talk, Clocks and Fix You, I make an exception.

Coldplay are a great band, but this isn't their best song.

Lol calling Coldplay a "rock" band. Cut me with that edge

60We are Young - Glee

Now, fun. fans, don't get mad at me before you listen what I have to say. fun. is one of my favorite bands, and this is the version by Glee. It is very sad the fun. version only rose to popularity because of Glee. They are an amazing band, but Glee is horrible. I want this band to be popular, but not because of glee.

What? No. It's unfair. If we made the case every place here should be filled up with Glee. They're so annoying it's just unfair for everyone else who wants to be overrated

Agreed with the previous comment. It's pretty sad that Fun is only popular because of a crappy show. If Glee had only one fan, it'd still be overrated.
