Top Ten Overhated Rock Songs

Beatlesboy9

The Top TenXW

1Born in the U.S.A. - Bruce Springsteen

I am not a fan of his work, really. But this song is probably the one from him that I like the most so it's funny to see this here. - BKAllmighty

How can somebody hate this song it's an American Classic,yet at the same time tell a story of a soldiers struggle. There is no way to hate this beautiful American song

2We Built This City - Starship

People probably hate it because the lyrics make no sense. Example "Marconi plays the Mamba." Marconi is an Italian inventor and electrical engineer, and the Mamba is one of the most dangerous snakes in the world.

I'm sick and tired of people say this song sucks, people leave this song alone

Yea there's even a list saying 10 reasons why this song is bad but I love it.

This song didn't deserve hatred anymore than other songs out there!

3Revolution 9 - The Beatles

I can see why many people hate this, but with further exposure to avant-garde/experimental music, I'm beginning to appreciate it. - PetSounds

I don't really think it classifies as a "song". It's more of a collage of sounds and voices. - BKAllmighty

4Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

I have seen some hate on this song as it is often associated with hispters who think they're cool because they like older bands. - HollyRolo

If you hate this song then hell is waiting for you
This is one of the most beautiful songs of all time and my favorite Led Zepplin song

5Hotel California - Eagles

I believe this was on another similar list. I don't understand why people don't like this one. It's a classic song in my books. - BKAllmighty

Guys. Are there that much people who hate this wonderful song? Why are you putting this in every overhated songs' list? - Fan_of_Good_Music

Why do people hate this song? I love it. - ruJILLous

This song is beautiful, and a classic

6Tubthumping - Chumbawamba

Well sure the line "Pissing through the night" was dumb, but otherwise the song was great and catchy - simpsondude

It's a fun one-hit wonder. Pretty much every song on the charts these days is worse, anyways. - BKAllmighty

7Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da - The Beatles

I can understand why people dislike Revolution 9, but what's wrong with this song? It always puts me in a good mood and it's cheesy (in a good way). There is absolutely no reason to hate it and I never get annoyed out of it. It's one of my favorite Beatles songs actually.

I see this song on "worst songs of all time" lists all the time and I just don't understand it. It's a fun, catchy, creative song. That's all it was ever meant to be. Pretty much everybody I know loves it and why wouldn't they? - BKAllmighty

8Living On a Prayer - Bon Jovi

I definitely do not hate this song. Not even close. I will say, though, that is arguably the most over-played song on the radio. Maybe if it's given a bit of a rest then people will want to start hearing it again. - BKAllmighty

I can't really think of anyone who'd logically hate it. - PositronWildhawk

This is the lamest sample ever. Listen to it! - CityGuru

9Breakfast at Tiffany's - Deep Blue Something
10Barracuda - Heart
