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.

They aren't good musicians, Ringo was the baddest drummer of all time.

Hard to be overrated when you're #1. World records don't lie. Try to dismiss world records! That's right you can't! - westofohio

They always make comments like "If you think this band is overrated you are an idiot" - christangrant

2 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin was an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.

Oh yes even when you point out how much Plagiarism they have they still say "So? That still doesn't mean they aren't great" - christangrant

I don't like Led Zeppelin... Deal with it or go away - Ananya

Wow even all of our comments got down voted by LZ fans lol - christangrant

Lol, I'm surprised Linkin Park isn't #1. If you go to a comment section and see that a person doesn't like them, the fanbase tells the person to fk off and assume they listen to 1D. - wrests

The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

Okay, I'm a huge fan of twenty one pilots, but I have to agree. the clique kinda sucks. everyone is so toxic!

Decent band but damn their fanbase which is mostly tumblr emos is awful. - DarkBoi-X

I like Twenty One Pilots but I don't care if you hate Twenty One Pilots.Also most Twenty One Pilots fans I've seen are nice.-LitSavage

Love this band but their fans can be pretentious. - DarkBoi-X

Yup this is true not a fan of this band but yeah they are a little bit overrated - christangrant

@christangrant they are VERY overrated, they are the softest alternative rock band (if they are even rock) and they are very mainstream, and Yorke's vocals... cancerous

6 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

Its mainly the Metalcore A7X fans that do this and have the audacity to defend Sounding the Seventh Trumpet which that album is completely awful from start to finish - christangrant

The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: more.

Funny how many people on this website say this fanbase is so bad yet I haven't seen a single one on this website (except myself) I guess that does prove 1 thing: this community has no taste and get offended too easily. - MetalWorldOrder

No words. - Userguy44

Say one thing negative, and you can hear every rabid cannibal corpse fanboy say the same thing: “oh, you don't like cannibal corpse? Go back to thumping your Bible, you Jesus freak!" - ReturnOfScorpio

8 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Their fanbase is a bunch of 12 year olds who can't accept that their favorite band is abosutle garbage. - MetalWorldOrder

Fanbase who consists of sheep who think they're cool.Some of them even think overrated means bad. - DarkBoi-X

Actually I can accept negative opinions about this band - TheDarkOne_221b

@MetalWorldOrder Well I can admit some songs by Imagine Dragons aren't that good, but other then that, they're one of the better modern bands there are. So don't attack others for their opinon, okay? We're entitled to our opinions as are you to yours - TheDarkOne_221b

9 Megadeth Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica. They have released 15 studio albums to date, and have gone through many lineup changes, with Dave more.

At least you can say negative opinions about Risk to them without getting hate - Alkadikce

As a non-metalhead, I don't see the need for the fans to rag on each other and their favorite bands just because Dave Mustaine and the members of Metallica hated each other. They've both got their strengths and weaknesses, and it's ok to prefer one over each other. But getting into fights or throwing insults? That seems ridiculous to me. - Gg2000

I never get why Metallica and Megadeth fans hate each other... both bands are great

Especially if you are a Metallica fan - christangrant
