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.

I get that he is a good guy in real life, but his music is just satanic.

At least give him a little love people. He's a normal person who wouldn't even harm a fly.

30 The Naked Brothers Band The Naked Brothers Band
31 Green Day

One of the best bands ever.

32 Sex Pistols Sex Pistols The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band formed in London in 1975. Although they initially lasted just two and a half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, they are considered one of the most influential acts in the history ...read more.
33 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.

34 Korn Korn Korn is an American Nu-Metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David ...read more.

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 Rush Rush Rush is a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. Even though the only founding member still in the band is Alex Lifeson (Guitar), the band is most well-known for their current members Neil Peart (Drums) and Geddy Lee (Bass, Vocals). ...read more.
