Top Ten Most Overrated Songs


The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Chandelier - Sia
102Crazy in Love - Beyoncé
103Beautiful People - Chris Brown

"Live your life, live your life, your beauty's deep inside" I'm taking this from the guy that beat Rihanna?

104Somebody 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

105Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

Screw this song, just screw it, It's not an "Ignore the haters" anthem. It's a song for Taylor to listen to when she goes on twitter for too long. - UltraFX

How are some of Katy's more underrated songs( Not including her big hits) more overrated than Shake It Off? This song is extremely overrated.

106See 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

107Earth Song - Michael Jackson

How is it overrated at all? It's a great song with a meaningful message.

This song alone is better than all Justin Bieber's crap songs.

108Beautiful - Christina Aguilera

This song has a good message and Christina is awesome

I quite like her music but this song blows

10921 Guns - Green Day

The only reason why everybody knows Green Day because of that song. It's on the radio everywhere and it is one of the most viewed music videos on YouTube that is made by Green Day.

The best song of 2009 by far and by the way the sample is not even Green Day ik the website is not awolled to

110Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

In what way is this song overrated? I hardly hear anyone keep bragging on about this song. And the guitar riffs are great in my opinion plus the lyrics can relate to everyday lives and today's society.

My favorite from dire straits. If anything, this is underrated. - matty925

111We Will Rock You - Queen

I swear to god, I got so mad when I saw Bohemian Rhapsody on the list (their best song, as rated as it needs) but not We Will Rock You (the MOST OVERRATED SONG IN HISTORY) First off, it's a boring sports anthem, with only drums and one guitar solo. Second off, 90 percent of the people that know this song have no idea what Queen is. Third, good GOD! I expected to see this as one of the top 10, and Bohemian Rhapsody is 7th? I know you can have opinions, but this... Good lord... I'm going to lay down for a second

This is such a dumb song. It took no skill to write, takes none to play, and the lyrics are really stupid, too.

I actually kind of agree with this. It's really good but I do think it's overrated.

This is more overrated than let it go

112Tiptoe Through the Tulips - Tiny Tim

Haha, I totally forgot about this horrible song until it popped into my head today. I have no idea why this song was ever so great to anyone.

RIP Tiny Tim, but this song kinda sucks. If its used in horrer movies, its bad

113Just Dance - Lady Gaga
114Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne

HEY HEY HEY HEY this song is crap - attarj

115We Belong Together - Mariah Carey

How Can This Be On This List? -_-

116Harlem Shake - Baauer

Someone finally understands my pain with people constantly doing harlem shake

117Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice
118We Found Love - RihannaV1 Comment
119Bodies - Drowning Pool

Why is this song so low? Whoever made this list obviously too young if they don't remember it being played in literally EVERY single YouTube video.

120Hero - Mariah Carey

I definitely think this song is overrated. I am a HUGE fan of Mariah Carey, but this song kind of bores me. I understand that it is an anthem to people in the army/LGBT community, but it isn't one of Mariah's better songs based on vocals.
