One of the most overrated bands ever. I don't understand why they're so popular to be honest.

I can't ever see these quitting. Which is a good thing - Britgirl

Actually they're not a rock band. They're an electronic group. But I still think they should stop making music.

They were actually good until they became sellouts. - nintendofan126

I liked them in their early days. - Powerfultekin

Pathetic, whiny wanabee rappers. Never anything difficult or impressive to rap at all. Nothing many people couldn't rap without coming close to losing breath or clarity or good delivery. Also an annoying sounding singer

Come on! One of the very, very slim few rock bands whose lead singer has an actually beautiful voice. And it's still powerful. Many of their songs are so emotional, which is refreshing compared to everything about sex and drugs.

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums) . ...read more.

A7X and BB shouldn't be here. Just because they're "overrated" doesn't mean they shouldn't make music. They make good music that they earned recognition for it and that is what they deserve. Not this list

The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

They are a disgrace to the metal genre. From what they were and now what they are now. Metallica is the most overrated EVER. There is no argument. I hope death comes to the name Metallica. I have no remorse for them. As they would say Kill Em' All!

Hardwired...To self destruct might be only mediocore or maybe not. - Fretto

I used to love them growing up, but they haven't released anything good in a long time - ryanrimmel

@jeffrey I did listen to their new albums and I'm not impressed. After One-X they went downhill. I moved on to more original music - ryanrimmel

"Original" yeah right cause crap like "Metallica" sure is original (sarcasm). Life Starts Now was a good album oh wait you never listened to that did you? - Jeffery0206
