Top 10 Reasons Why Linkin Park Is Overrated

MontyPython

The Top TenXW

1They are claimed to be the best band ever, even though they did not have as much skill as many other bands.

Yeah definitely true bands like ACDC, Metallica, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Evanescence and even Queen have more skill then Linkin Park. - BoredJeff02

This one is so true, they claim they are legends, they are an average BAND.

2Guns N Roses, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, etc have achieved more.

Linkin Park is overrated because Guns N Roses has achieved more? How does that even make Sense? - Cheese567

It makes sense because Linkin Park are claimed to be the best thing that ever happened to music even though these other artists have worked harder and have achieved more in their careers. How does that not make sense? - MontyPython

3Their songs are nothing to write home about.
4Their singer is good, not the best singer ever.
5They are said to be better than The Beatles and Led Zeppelin.

Linkin Park will not be better than these two great bands. - McKing1003

Yes, I like Linkin Park, but u can't compare a metal rock band to a folk rock band, big difference between the two

6The members are talented, but they're no Michael Jackson.

What kind of a point is this, it's like comparing Elvis to nirvana which are two completely different things with completely different styles. - Cheese567

I agree, Linkin Park WERE good, first two albums were great. But ever since then it's been one disappointment after the other. A Thousand Suns and Living Things were laughable. They also played with Paul McCartney and Jay Z, obviously McCartney was the star. - IronSabbathPriest

Listen to the songs from The Hunting Party and tell me that they are still sellouts.

Oh, so Iron Maiden's members are talented, but they're not Black Sabbath; Megadeth's mebers are talented but they're not Motorhead; Dream Theater's members are talented but they're not Pink Floyd; Avenged Sevenfold's members are talented but they're not Metallica

You see? Your argument is tupid

7Numb and In The End aren't their best songs.
8They can get really annoying to hear about over time.

Hmm, just like every other musician on the planet. Sub check proof when making statements. - SuperHyperdude

Well I'm sorry, but I'm going to respectfully disagree- wait never mind. I agree. I was going to say I would never get tired of listening to Queen. Even though it's my favorite song, I would get tired of Bohemian Rhapsody if it was the only song I could listen to. So, thanks for the correction! - MontyPython

9People claim that they are the best alternative band, even though Green Day, Nirvana, and Radiohead are more iconic.

Green Day is a far better band in comparison. The singer isn't great but he isn't like a overrated pariah that gets attention for only one song (Looking at you In The End) and has a lot more accomplished and is overall better. I really don't see how people consider Linkin Park the best band of the 2000's, if anything their the most overrated of the 2000's. - BoredJeff02

I could name 45 alternative bands way better then Linkin Park - Mumbizz01

10They have too many overprotective fans.

And that's the main reason people will have for emptily bashing this list. When has there been a supportive argument for why LP are unique? I personally haven't seen one, apart from "They're awesome" fifty times over. - PositronWildhawk

The fans of this band are not unlike the Slayer fans. Extremely dedicated, and will not take a negative comment. - IronSabbathPriest

The Contenders

11They're a nu metal band.

What kind of stupid reason is this?! - NikBrusk

V1 Comment
12Rap and rock don't mix well.

It does if the lyrics make sense (like Linkin Park) - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

13The typical movie soundtrack filler band.
