Top 10 Most Overrated Songs That Are Still Great

A term used to describe something, that does'nt deserve as much praise as it gets.

Overrated =/= bad

The Top TenXW

1In the End - Linkin Park

I love Linkin Park, but I HATE to see this always being on the number one spot for Best Linkin Park Songs.

Who did this end up THAT HIGH on the best Songs List! Please tell me, I don't get it! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

Its overrated, I'll admit. But I still like this song. - nintendofan126

2Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Overplayed, overrated, overhyped, overpraised. I hope it is over soon.

Very near, fantastic and amazingly put together, but not 1st place worthy! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

3Enter Sandman - Metallica
4November Rain - Guns N' Roses

I swear that if the music video didn't exist the song wouldn't be as popular. - MrQuaz680

5Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

This song is fantastic, but it does'nt deserve NR.4 on the Best Songs List!
It's my second favorite song ever created and my favorite song from my favorite band, but most of the popularity came from how overplayed it was! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6Earth Song - Michael Jackson
7Wonderwall - Oasis
8Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Not any more overplayed than any other super-popular song, and there is a reason it is played a lot, it is obviously the best.

9Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

Trust me, there are more overrated songs than this one.

• Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

• Satisfaction - Rolling Stones

• Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses

Great songs, but way more overrated than this song. - MontyPython

10Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses

The Contenders

11Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
12Creep - Radiohead
132 Minutes to Midnight - Iron Maiden

Kill for gain or shoot to maim
But we don't need a reason
The golden goose is on the loose
And never out of season
Blackened fire still burns inside this shell of bloody treason.

Come on, you can't argue with lyrics like that! - IronSabbathPriest

14Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
15Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
16Imagine - John Lennon
