The Top TenXW
Over loved by teenage boys who are pumped up on their first surge of testosterone, and suddenly imagine that they are incredibly wise and important.
Yes of course, criticizing for good reasons is always fine. We should ask, what exactly are good reasons, and who gets to decide if they are good.
Most Queen fans are OK, but some fans disregard the band's career and simply overpraise Freddie Mercury or ignore a lot of their songs. - SwellowV1 Comment
Thank you, Swellow! I like the Beatles, always have BUT they are overrated. They are! And whenever I voice this opinion, I have to watch my back from the attack of the Giant Killer Beatles Fans. - Britgirl
Because they're the best band ever and if Beliebers say hate things about the Beatles, they will be attack. - Metts
Here at top tens there are way more attacks on the beatles and attacks on beatle fans than there ever are attacks on the haters in returnV3 Comments
If LZ is over-rated, then every band is over-rated. They are in the top five music acts of all time, with a legitimate claim to the top spot overall. Nothing is perfect, but they are great, and even though many people do not like them just means that even more people do not like other music acts.
This zep fan admits that Led Zeppelin done many bad things.And they are overrated(little bit of ) - zxm
Back when he was alive, he was CONSTANTLY criticized, & attacked! - clusium
I'm probably one of the few people who WON'T attack you if you don't like him. - 906389V1 Comment
Similar issue to Queen. Since Nirvana is very popular with casual fans, those fans who believe themselves to have superior and more serious musical taste decide that they can't be associated with anything that is so popular.
I admit I liked In Utero, but a lot of people just jump onto the Nirvana bandwagon after one listen of Smells Like Teen Spirit. - Swellow
I know a lot of Nirvana fans who have only listened to that one song alone. - LightningBlade
Nirvana is the most overrated band I have ever seen (and let's see how many votes or downvotes I get) - zxm
Both Linkin Park and Nirvana are extremely overrated but Nirvana gets my vote 'cause they're not genuinely overrated. Thumbs down if you disagree. - LightningBladeV1 Comment
"She is actually good", so you are saying she is better than The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and the other artists listed, which justifies her fans lashing out.
Intolerant to their idol getting bashed. They treat her like a special deity when she's nothing more than a mediocre singer. - Swellow
I don't know. Although the fans are like any other fans from any other fandoms and will attack you for the hate, she actually is good. - AnonymousChick
The fans are hyper-sensitive to any criticism at all.V1 Comment
They are awesome. They are Gods of music. Gods of music can do bad things if you criticize them. - Music_Lover123
She has a few really overrated songs that people know her for. Most people like her for that alone and attack you for hating her. - MetalObsessed
Guessing this is a US thing. Most people in Ireland really hate her (Excluding me). - Swellow
The fans are deadly. They will do anything to you! - ProPanda
9 months later, and the David Bowie troll is still getting turned on by adding Bowie to every list? - Swellow
This is more true than anything. How much criticism did the David Bowie "troll" get? - ProPanda
Known for an average early 2000s nu-metal album with two substandard hits, then they faded away into obscurity. Amy Lee is an amazing vocalist, but she's basically the only reason the band is even famous. They are amazing, but people defend them for only two songs, and these are the people who say you can't hate metal or rock without listening to it. Within Temptation and Lacuna Coil, while having decent female vocalists, are admittedly much better. - Swellow
I have noticed that the contemporary radio stations that had not played his music in years are now playing it again.
I'm guessing he's now a broken base; One side thinks he only got famous from his death, while the other doesn't. - Swellow
Why do people attack you for criticizing Prince? I just don't like his music in my opinion. - Metts
This is what I know from a few of his diss tracks: He is VERY AGGRESSIVE when it comes to dissing that it's impossible to beat him in a battle so it's best to give him respect because if you do something bad you're screwed - AlphaQ
He's overrated by people that don't even listen to rap music. He does not represent casual rap. He is part of pop rap, just like Taylor Swift is part of pop country. In my opinion, a person should not say that someone is the best of a certain genre if they don't care about any other part of that genre.
DUde he's counted as hip-hop rap. I think you talking bout Drake cause he pop rap - AlphaQ
I can criticize him for being not up to par with his earlier stuff, even though his recent stuff is good. That being said, I look forward to his new album. - Satire
Eminem is my favorite but why can't I criticize him - HiimmeV2 Comments
I personally love Iron Maiden, but I won't attack you for criticizing them. - jack2244
I don't like some of their songs, such as Crawling. - Swellow
He's not even in the top 5 for electronic music artists. Consistently average compared to artists of the same genre, yet he gets the most attention.
But in the end, he's not bad. - SwagFlicks
They suck don't care how many down votes I get
Actually us Coldplay fans are ok with criticism. It's the hatedom who will attack you. - ProPanda
What is so special about this band? Genre bending has existed before, and artists such as Gorillaz or Zappa did it much better between these two. Then there's the Skeleton Clique, arguably the worst new music artist fanbase. - Swellow
In my opinion they really suck... hear me out on this one. For one, most of their songs consist of what's basically 3 chords. Secondly, their 'relatable' lyrics are as cringe-worthy as they are pathetic. Lastly, their lead singer can't even sing! (Not to mention most of their fan base is absolutely terrible) - Brobusky
If I say their songs are repetitive you can't understand them I am evil and dumb somehow. - MetalObsessedV2 Comments
