3 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented more.

The Beatles deserve their spot more than any other band. They revolutionized music, produced a large amount of quality music in a short amount of time, delving into many different genres. John Lennon and Paul McCartney are GENIUSES and George Harrison isn't a bad songwriter himself. Best band ever.

The Beatles are extremely overrated, but some of you guys need to keep in mind is that overrated and bad are two completely different things. It just means they're praised a lot, which was definitely the case for The Beatles, still to this day decades later.

This website makes zero sense to me. This is just about the same list as the overrated list. What's the deal? The same thing goes with the top comedians and the most overrated comeadians. They're about the same list with different titles that contradict each other. This whole website is one big clueless contradiction.

They deserve the praise and recognition, because other bands would not be here if it weren't for the Beatles

4 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

One direction is seriously a underrated band. They can sing, but unfortunately they do use a lot of auto-tune. One direction has songs will never die!

One direction isn't that overrated. In my opinion, they actually deserve the fame. Haters just don't like them because they're more good looking and talented. I mean "You and I" isn't such a bad song and so is "Perfect". Also, you got to admit, "Best song Ever" is actually pretty catchy.

What about "if I could fly" or "home" "you and i" "night changes" "olivia"? One direction is not at all overrated...they deserve their fame

You hopefully don't mean that one direction deserves more fame than,for example, Grateful Dead - waldo

I love some of their work, but there are still many people who will scream at you for not liking st anger or lulu, so it kind of deserves to stay on the other list.

Awww hell no. AC/DC is EASILY the most overrated rock band. Even if Johnson was Freddie Mercury, AC/DC would still not stack up against bands like Rush, Aerosmith, Van Halen, definitely Leppard, or Bon Jovi. - DavidBondra

Led Zeppelin is the definition of rock n roll. There aren't many bands that are as talented or who put out as many classics as Zeppelin did.
