The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), ...read more.

They never where overrated, the reason the Dark Side Of The Moon lasted that well in the charts doesn't makes them overrated, because they deserve that admiration, being one of the few Bands that can be called: BEst BAnd of all Times - waldo

Pink Floyd is awesome, and I don't understand how anyone can call them overrated. - RogerWatersfan1999

Once the favorite band of Stoners, always the favorite band of Stoners.

They're UNDERRATED.

2 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 ...read 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.

I understand that overrated does not mean bad, it just means that they are overpraised. However, calling The Beatles overrated is stupid. Call me bias because I like The Beatles, but it is without a doubt a fact that they changed music, paved way for others to come, and made history.

They are appropriately praised.

They deserve every bit of praise they receive, they are AMAZING! - Ajkloth

Queen is the BEST

They are not overrated and not underrated. They get their well-deserved attention, I think.
Obviously the best rock band of all time with the amazing Freddie Mercury and not with Adam Lambert.
"There could never be another Freddie! " - John Deacon

One of the most most most overrated bands of all time

Bohemian Rhapsody is overrated, but they also have plenty of underrated songs too. - jrodz

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 ...read 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.

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

1D isn't overrated,they deserve what they have.

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

They deserve to be at least number 2 on that list - christangrant

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.

All their praise is well deserved

17 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

Neither FALL OUT BOY nor LINKIN PARK deserves to be on the overrated lists. Both of these bands produce great music and meaningful lyrics. They should be on the overhated band not on overrated

If anything, they're underrated. They've been going strong for 40 years, they still sound great, and they are still one of the biggest bands in the world. They've also had some of the biggest tours of all time.

Korn is a really good metal band and is definitely not overrated. You want overrated? Whatever the actual hell they put on the radio is overrated. People may think the Beatles, Metallica, Pink Floyd, etc, are overrated but that's not the case. They are ubiquitous, but that is because they really are great bands. However, prefabricated rock groups that are forcefully on the radio everyday are overrated because the music is almost never or never good and because of unnecessary overuse.

35 The Beach Boys The Beach Boys The Beach Boys are an American pop rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

The Beach Boys are simply the greatest band of all time. They came before The Beatles, The Bee Gees and all the other bands here on this list. Yes, they did start out with the surf music, but during the later years, they came out with absolute masterpieces. Today, Pet Sounds, SMiLE, Sunflower, and Surf's Up are only a few of their amazing albums. The Beach Boys have pioneered so many genres, and are among the earliest instigators of Psychedelic Rock and Pop. They have influenced just about everyone in the music business, including bands like The Beatles and Pink Floyd. Unlike Brian, Paul and John didn't have to deal with an abusive father, mental illness, or a record label that rejected everything you brought to them. Keep in mind that Paul, John, and George Martin all worked together to put out The Beatles' greatest works, such as Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sgt. Pepper. Brian didn't have two other people to help write and produce. He composed Pet Sounds while the other Beach Boys ...more

The Beach Boys are not just surf, cars, and girls enthusiasts (although that stuff is quality pop rock in its own right): listen to Pet Sounds and SMiLE and tell me that isn't great stuff.
