Top Ten Overrated Music Artist Signature Songs

The Top Ten

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I hate whenever someone wears a Nirvana shirt but can only name Smells Like Teen Spirit, or don't know there a band and think there a clothing brand. Also Come As You Are, Hart Shaped Box and Lithium are 1,200 times better - GoldenRocket

This song is a great song no doubt about it, but I personally think You Know You're Right is their best song. Kurt lets out a lot of pain and aggression in that track. In this track you can tell he doesn't like this song all that much. - MontyPython

Come As You Are? Heart Shaped Box? LOVE BUZZ? Some Nirvana fans need to know more of their other stuff. This is far from the best Nirvana song. - NuMetalManiak

Get a load of some of their others: "About a Girl", "Oh, the Guilt", "Blew", etc.

2 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

It's a great song, but there are just so many others that are better. - IronSabbathPriest

3 Pull Me Under - Dream Theater Pull Me Under - Dream Theater

It's good, but gets a bit repetitive after a while. - IronSabbathPriest

4 Ace of Spades - Motorhead Ace of Spades - Motorhead

Again, awesome song, but the majority of "fans" only know this song! - IronSabbathPriest

5 Burden - Opeth Burden - Opeth

There are better Opeth songs out there such as, Blackwater Park, Bleak, Harvest, Ghost of Perdition, and my personal favourite, The Moor. - IronSabbathPriest

6 Sweet Child O Mine - Guns N' Roses Sweet Child O Mine - Guns N' Roses

I can't be the only one who likes Paradise City, Welcome to the Jungle, and especially November Rain better. - MontyPython

Great song, but not the best at all. - IronSabbathPriest

7 Eagle Fly Free - Helloween Eagle Fly Free - Helloween

There's "I Want Out"... - Pony

8 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

This my favorite Led Zeppelin song, but I wish songs like Thank You, Communication Breakdown, and When the Levee Breaks weren't so overshadowed by this song. They deserve more recognition and love. - MontyPython

By no means their best song. Or anything special. And putting it on best songs everywhere is tiresome and inane. - PositronWildhawk

It is a great song, but I find it to be way overrated. It isn't even Led Zeppelin's best song - Shake_n_Bake13

Whole Lotta Love Was Way Better. - FettiMC

9 Wonderwall - Oasis Wonderwall - Oasis

Oasis have done a lot of excellent songs, but this one is garbage. - PositronWildhawk

Maybe. It's still a great song. - IronSabbathPriest

Thriller is 100% better. - MontyPython

The Contenders

11 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

Only one of them is, ironically. - PositronWildhawk

12 Strobe - Deadmau5 Strobe - Deadmau5 V 2 Comments
13 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

It may be a good song, but Separate Ways is so much better. That's the one that deserves all the credit, not this one - Shake_n_Bake13

14 Promises - Nero Promises - Nero
15 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

My Immortal is easily better. - MontyPython

18 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Rolling Stones (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Rolling Stones
