This is true. I used to be so obsessed with Linkin Park and I became a total fanboy, before I found other great bands like Metallica.

The Contenders

11QueenQueen are a British rock group formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury ...read more.

Way over-loved and over-rated. Rolling Stone magazine had Freddy Mercury rated as the #16 rock vocalist of all time, which is about right.

"To be honest", Freddie is vastly inferior to a whole host of singers, most notably the greatest of all time; Il Maestro himself, Luciano Pavarotti- it's really a joke to even compare the two.
Along the same lines, among current singers, Andrea Bocelli, Placido Domingo, and also older names like Mario Lanza, Jussi Bjorling, and of course the immortal Enrico Caruso all make Freddie Mercury sound like an amateur.

12MetallicaMetallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

I like Metallica and they are a talented band, but they are a bit overrated. - RiverClanRocks

17The BeatlesThe Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

The Beatles prove the fallacy of over-loving music, you just can't do it, being that they are the most popular, biggest selling, most successful music act of all time. Even given their tremendous advantage over every other musician, probably less than 30 percent of the people who know about them even like them. The rest don't care or may dislike them. All other musicians take a radical drop from there, with MJ or LZ probably below 20 percent favorable among the entire population, and Queen and Nirvana below 10 percent favorable among everyone. No music act or genre can be over-loved, and they all need as much love as they can get.

I love these guys, but I will admit they're overrated as hell.
