The Top Ten

1 Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin

This is a good album, not overrated. Listen to Rock and Roll, Stairway to Heaven, Misty Mountain Hop, and When The Levee Breaks. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

This is a great album why is it on here?

The list creator likes to call things overrated based on his opinion over the majority. - Billyv

2 A Night at the Opera - Queen A Night at the Opera - Queen

One of their best, but definitely overrated. A very uneven album in terms of quality, and it does have some pointless filler (Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon anyone? ). Still a great album though, just quite overrated overall. - Mrveteran

So sick of hearing it, also sick and tired of listening to people rave about it.

Again, a great album. Bohemian Rhapsody is a good song. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

This is why it overrated. Why make one good song an album is great? - somekindofaguy
