Top 10 Most Overrated Things

The Top Ten
1 ‎TikTok

I get why there are people that would say that TikTok is overrated, but it's strange to see it at #1 on this site's list of most overrated things. How can the users on this site think that TikTok is more overrated than Kim Kardashian, the Kardashian family, Beyonce, Friends(the sitcom), Selena Gomez, Star Wars, Marvel, Batman, the Joker, Eminem, Elvis, or Marilyn Monroe?

Ngl I enjoy tiktok cause I find some funny videos and dances on it, sadly it did replace vine as the place to go to for memes. Well- I go to reddit for my memes. But Tiktok's biggest problem is it promotes some of the worst behavior(Pink sauce, boiling water, breakup challenges) But the people who are using it for plain fun are buried amidst the bad influencers like James Charles or Charli D' whatever her name is who go and copy what other popular creators have done. Much Like soundcloud anyone can become famous through tiktok but the more garbage people get attention

Even though nobody on this site likes TikTok, I do think it's extremely overrated. My sister and her friends are obsessed with TikTok, and my mom even watches TikTok. But I just don't get it. It's a super boring app where you just watch cringeworthy videos. And don't even get me started on the challenges...

I'm glad I never gave into peer pressure and still haven't downloaded the app onto my phone to this day. 99% of it is crappy "singers" and other pure garbage that my eyes really don't need to see. It's straight up boring and even annoying sometimes.

2 Sports

I can understand why this is number 1 on this list. Now I'm not saying that athletes don't deserve to be noticed, but there are people that made some very good points about the fans. There are sport fans that go nuts over their favorite athlete or favorite team. There are even fans that would get into brawls over the athlete or team they adore. That's mostly true among American Football fans. Plus, there are people that wondered why athletes get far more money than doctors, construction workers, officers, firemen, scientists, or people of any other major recreational job. There are people that wondered the same thing about actors and reality stars(which are mostly actors themselves). Some sport fans made the claim that athletes worked hard, had accomplished something good, are considered heroes, and are people that are looked up to by many. Can't those things also be said about doctors, construction workers, scientists, or people of any major recreational job? What gives sports a far ...more

To those arguing that sports aren't overrated: Yeah, I get that sports is good for your health and body, but that doesn't mean it's not overrated. Things can be good but still overrated, and let's face it. Sports are extremely overrated. I literally know people whose lives pretty much revolve around watching sports games and posting about it every 5 minutes, plus a lot of people think that playing sports is the only form of exercise there is and assume that any non-athletic person is a 400 pound tub of lard that sits around all day doing nothing. It is overrated. Case closed.

Where do I begin with this. Sports is overrated. The kids in my old Phys Ed classes made a huge deal about it. They became sore losers when they lost. It's a class, kids, not the olympics. Also, a lot of the jocks/sports kids are bullies or used to bully at my old schools. Just because you can catch and throw a ball, doesn't mean you're superior to everyone else. You don't have the right to make everyone else feel bad about themselves. Okay, I'll admit I have friends who are into sports but they're not these narcissistic jerks like 90% of sports kids I used to know are.

DON'T GET ME WRONG. Sports are a good, healthy way to spend your time! But when you were at school you always had to enroll in a sport, and nobody respects that sport just isn't motivating for some people, and people have to understand that. Its always like, "what extracurriculars do you do" and everyone says some type of sport.

3 Netflix Netflix is an American entertainment company founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph on August 29, 1997, in Scotts Valley, California.

Tbh I feel that with the invasion of so many new streaming services(That we honestly don't need) Netflix is slowly losing it's relevancy. It does have gems that blow up and keep it on it''s feet like Stranger things, squid game, and cobra kai. But with so many services coming out the blue and nabbing shows from netflixs it's likely the overratedcy will end.

Netflix has some good shows, but a lot of bad ones. Disney is better in my opinion because it actually has good-quality shows, and you don't see Instagram posts saying "me and my hubby are going to watch Disney the entire night"

Everyone at school never shuts the hell up about Netflix. They make it out to be the best thing ever. It's not even that good, around 85% of its shows/movies are trash.

I'm sick of seeing "YASSS! Me and hubby are gonna Netflix and chill tonight" everywhere on the internet, especially seeing that there aren't many shows or movies on there and most of what is there is trash.

4 Airpods

AirPods don't even fit in my ears anyway. I tried them once and my ear got this shooting pain in it. But I see people with these all the time.

Why spend over a hundred dollars on this. You can get cheaper headphones with better sound quality and longer lasting.

I have never used these, but I have small ears, so these would probably hurt like hell. Plus, they look stupid.

I really do NOT get whats the big deal over airpods. kids are always trying to get away with it in my classes.

5 Fortnite: Battle Royale

I think Fortnite is very overrated as well, but to the person with the username lemur, your last statement in the comment you made is completely untrue.

I don't get how people get addicted to this game. All my friends play it for like 6 hours. But then I play and I can't play for more then 2 matches. The game is just so boring to me. It's the same things each game. Loot, walk around, then get killed by somebody. The game is almost all luck based too. I much rather play a mario game then this. At least mario games have a story and is not the same thing over and over

Disney bought the rights to Fortnite. It appeared in the final Avengers movie ad it appeared in the game also, Wreck it Ralph 2 and there will be a T.V. show made by them. What's next? A Fortnite movie made by Walt Disney Animation or a live action movie with a animated cgi loot llaima, the bear guy and more. Fortnite Sucks! Worse than Emoji Movie. #don't let Gene do the floss dance.

This game isn't anything special. It's just another game with a fanbase consisting of middle school boys constantly shoving it down everyone's throats for the first year or two before the next "cool" game comes out while everyone forgets about this.

6 Minecraft

I don't understand what the point of the game is. The only thing you are supposed to do is "survive". There aren't proper obstacles like in a normal game... honestly I just don't understand the point of it.

This is the worst game ever all you do is survive and build how is this even popular the guy who said whoever thinks Minecraft is overrated is an ass in bikinis that poops in them should play real games not x box.

Yeah, the fanbase died down a lot, but it is still overrated. Great! You can build things, but it was more fun 10 years ago...

This game was BIG when I was in elementary school. I tried playing it once but it just wasn't my thing.

7 Baby Shark

This song is absolute garbage. Even 11 year old me was smart enough to hate it.

I'm so glad I grew up with Mario and not this.

Thankfully for everyone, this died off.

This song is corny and bland.

8 Anime

Most boys, including my friends at school love anime. I didn't say I hate anime (due to it's really good animation and design), but I don't really watch anime, a lot of cartoons and TV shows. The only anime movie I have watched is The Castle of Cagliostro on Netflix.

The worst reason of why people watch it is because of "hot" girls, even though I don't like the style of "hot" girls in anime. I may be a boy, but I am against the way girls are treated with 0% character. It makes sexual abuse feel like "true love".

I don't like anime. No, not because I'm jealous, but because I never understood the appeal of annoying voice acting, terrible frame rate, bad character designs, cheesy or repetitive plots, having to read the subtitles in order to understand what they're saying, the absolute horrid fanbase and sometimes (I said sometimes) porn. Not everyone is going to like it, so go open a dictionary and find the word opinion or get off the internet.

This should not be a thing. They don't have storylines, the art is so stupid and you don't have to be talented whatsoever to produce it, there are so many negative themes in anime but they try to hide it by making it all cartoon-like. Its kind of like an addiction. I hate it.

I probably can't say anything cause I don't watch T.V. shows, but according to my experience this is what I think. Anime is trash, I gave it a chance, but every show is honestly going in the same direction, and is usually pretty predictable. I probably can't say anything cause I don't watch T.V. shows, but according to my experience this is what I think.

9 Call of Duty

Call of Duty and Star Wars. Hard to say which franchise is more overrated. They both have constant wars. They both get brought up way too much, even in matters that have nothing to do with either of them. They're both highly regarded by their fans as being revolutionary when neither of them are. Star Trek set the standard of futuristic science fiction a decade before Star Wars. The main difference between them is that Star Trek did not come off as something that Michael Bay fans would enjoy. As for Call of Duty fans that call other war video games a rip-off, there had been war video games before that overrated series. Counter-strike, SOCOM:U.S. Navy SEALs, Medal of Honor, and Ace Combat all came out before Call of Duty. This really makes the Call of Duty hype seem more confusing. What's dumber is that fans want to think that every later game is very different from the earlier game when it isn't. At least the makers of Star Wars try to make the sequels seem different from an earlier ...more

I hate activision for making this stupid, overrated series, and I hate them for releasing what's literally the same game each year. However, I hate activision more for ruining Crash Bandicoot. Of course, Crash Bandicoot was ruined before crudivision bought it, but I think Crash wouldn't of remained ruined if crudivision had never bought the series. It's obvious that they don't care about it. That trilogy remake is an insult to the original trilogy. Screw crudivision.

The most overrated franchise ever created, other then star wars of course.

Oh great. Number 2? Should be number 1.

10 Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software and online services headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States. Apple is the largest technology company by revenue (totaling US$365.8 billion in 2021) and as of May 2022, it is the world's second biggest company by market capitalization, the fourth-largest personal computer vendor by unit sales and second-largest mobile phone manufacturer. It is one of the Big Five American information technology companies, alongside Alphabet, Amazon, Meta, and Microsoft. ...read more.

Iphone is so overrated that it's annoying. I've seen people get laughed at because of their androids when the only thin iphone really does is add on some random emoji app, and make it 200$ more expensive than the last

They literally put out the same overpriced stuff every year that always crash and freeze, and if you get close to running out of storage, they'll feel the need to remind you every 10 seconds, and it's not like deleting stuff works half of the time because I deleted 789 items (no joke) off of my camera roll on my phone the other day, plus 5 apps and I still wasn't able to download ONE app. At least most of what I did delete was all just a bunch of junk anyway, and I was able to download that app after I went back into my camera roll and cleared my "recently deleted", but you'd think that by deleting so much stuff, you'd have a decent amount of storage, but I still have 31.2 GB used out of 32. Also, yes, I did try offloading apps, but it made no difference whatsoever, then it offloaded iMovie (while I had a finished project on there which was the main reason I was doing this in the first place) and I don't have enough storage to get it back. It really makes me wonder why I even bother ...more

Apple is beyond the levels of overrated. It's becoming one of the worst companies in the world. They make the iPhone more and more degrading as time goes on. The iPhone 7's removal of the headphone jack was only the beginning. Now they no longer have a button. What's next? No more volume option? It's not just their electronics, their software sucks too. For example, iMovie is garbage, it's so limited and goes against creative expression at all costs.

Whats the difference between an android and an iPhone? Not really you just payed the triple for an iPhone, same as what the difference between a 20 dollar shirt versus a 50 dollar shirt? None. They both cover your nakedness, except you payed 50 dollars for a shirt. can someone please explain the why iPhone users keep saying they are better? /

? Pep Rallies

Words can't describe how much I hate stupid pep rallies based off of the 1 I went to back in April 2022.

The Contenders
11 Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar (born October 11, 1992), known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper. Born and raised in New York City, she became an Internet celebrity by achieving popularity on Vine and Instagram. From 2015 to 2017, she appeared as a regular cast member on the VH1 reality television series Love & Hip Hop: New York, which depicted her pursuit of her music aspirations. She released two mixtapes—Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 (2016) and Vol. 2 (2017), before signing with Atlantic Records in February 2017. ...read more.

I find her music absolutely soulless and unattractive. And her fans are stupid too because there's just so much out there that feel so much more smarter and bright to the heart while the people who like her music just become feminine gangster like people who don't care about quality at all. This is just my thought about her. She's the daughter of evil.

Words are unable to describe how overrated I think she is.

Her voice is so annoying

Didn't she sexually abuse someone?

12 Kim Kardashian Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian West is an American reality television personality, actress, socialite, businesswoman and model. Along with her sisters, she is well known for her stupidity and for all the plastic surgery procedures she's had over the years. She is also known for her infamous show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" that aired on TV from 2007 - 2021.

If this list were legit, she and the rest of her family should be in the top part of this list. It makes no sense that there are people that treat them like grand royalty. They didn't do anything really special. Dating athletes, actors, or music stars don't count. If it did, then several women before the Kardashians should of gotten their own T.V. show. Much of their fame must stem from a terrible fandom, because I don't see how anyone with real taste would care about them. The Kardashians are the most overrated people in Hollywood.

In a world full of annoying, bratty, spoiled Kardashians, be a Hepburn.

Really, though. Be proud of who you are? The exact opposite of this woman. She gets all the attention and ALL the plastic surgeries. Kardashian family? Disgusting. Everyone says that they are "nice and interesting"...

Nope.

She should be in the top 20 part of this list. While many things on this list don't live up to much of their hype, most of those things have valid reasons of getting hype. That can't be said about Kim Kardashian.

She deserved to get booted off the stage by Prince. She should get booted from every other stage, because she doesn't deserve to be on one.

13 The Kardashians

It will be nice when they leave the spotlight for good.

The most overrated family of all time.

Yep. Every last one of them.

If they all took an IQ test, their scores would probably be in the negatives.

14 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is an animated children's television series based on the fourth incarnation of Hasbro's My Little Pony franchise. The show follows a studious unicorn (later an alicorn) pony named Twilight Sparkle (Tara Strong) and her friends Applejack (Ashleigh Ball), Rarity (Tabitha St. Germain), Fluttershy (Andrea Libman), Rainbow Dash (Ball), Pinkie Pie (Libman), and dragon assistant Spike (Cathy Weseluck). They travel on adventures and help others around Equestria while solving problems that arise in their own friendships.

I'm a girl and I never even liked this show when I was little. People might like this for some reason(don't know why) but I see this show as any other baby show, its no different than Caillu or Dora. I didn't even know adults liked this.

Even I enjoy it a bit, but I agree so much. Gravity falls may be better even.

Who watches this anyways?

It is ending soon

15 Pop Music

A lot of pop music not only seems to cover just one topic, but also sounds very generic. Pop music can be good when done right, but we see too much of this generic love song carp in pop music.

Pop music sounds cheap. The majority of singers use autotune way too much and the music itself is just a bunch of repetitive beats that we're designed to be catchy and make cash. There are a few good Pop songs out there, but the more time passes the more it seems hard to find one. Older Pop songs are already way better.

I like classic pop, but, I despise modern pop.

Well, I mean it's pop music. Makes sense right?

16 Roblox

I blame it for that racist cringe YouTuber (flamingo) that every 6 year old watches. The game is also overrated for the games that roblox has inside it etc etc

This is another game I don't understand the point of. It seems more like a social media platform to me.

ODers and young children made it worse. Plus, the Developers are gold diggers.

17 Social Media

Obviously. Everyone nowadays is on social media, trying to get attention.

What is so great about it? You know that you can actually talk with people in person

Most overrated thing ever! No need to explain.

This is overrated.

18 Selfies

Who wants to make bets that at least 70% of kids, teens and young adults' photo galleries are mostly taken up by "selfies"? (What a stupid term) What's kind of funny about it is that the vast majority of them are iPhone users.

This is too overrated by egomaniacs.

Why is this not in the top tens?

This is overrated.

19 The Word "Overrated"

If the people that voted on 'the word overrated' does not understand by now what overrated means, then they're either very dumb or are just blind fanboys or fangirls. I'll state some examples of things that are way overrated. Eminem is the most overrated rapper. Racism is a big reason for that. He's so worshipped by racists, he has songs that gets played on rock stations. Do you think that would still happen if Eminem were black? Elvis, Adele, and Taylor Swift are other singers that are overrated because of racism.

Saying something popular is "overrated" isn't as edgy or as subversive as you think it is. It's quite basic, in fact.

I'm not someone who particularly enjoys mainstream culture, but the amount of people with basic opinions who think they're being super alternative by calling popular things "overrated" is genuinely astounding.

The best part is a lot of the people that say this word don't even know what it means, and they think anything "overrated" is automatically bad even though a lot of the things on this list are actually in reality some of the most hated things ever like Frozen and Nicki Minaj.

Half of the time it's used, the person using it has no idea what it means.

20 Sex

It depends on the type, really. I, a romance writer, can tell you a little something. It depends on the people performing it and what type it is. Is it hardcore, name-calling BDSM? Is it steamy, passionate romantic sex between a couple madly in love? Are there gags? What's the foreplay like? And most importantly, what are the people like and what are they most comfortable with? Maybe one couple doesn't like BDSM or name-calling, but enjoy passionate kisses and the type of dirty-talk is used. There are a lot of ways that sex can be performed, so really, only what happens in sex determines if it is overrated. And face it: if sex didn't exist, neither would we.

Where do I even begin with, I know it's a way to show love, but if you take the porn, the songs, and the thots who make fun of you for being a virgin, it just makes it so much worse. I never got love interests, which means I'll stay a virgin and never have sex with anyone. Also, overpopulation. If you really want a kid, don't go an have fun with your husband/wife. Adopt a child instead. Millions of children are orphans, waiting to be adopted. Sorry if that was out of the blue, just use a condom.

Why does everybody like this so much?! It's gross and inappropriate and people like to do it for AMUSEMENT! You should only do it when you want to have a baby! Also, people should start paying more attention to personality instead of what other people's bodies look like! Intelligence, kindness, generosity. All wonderful things you can find in a romantic partner other than inappropriate garbage.

I don't have a problem with it. I mean for a lot of people it's fun and gives them pleasure but what makes it overrated is the fact that most artists make sex references in their songs nowadays and the fact people go crazy for sexual content like if a girl shows off her body for example if you catch my drift. But if you think about it that's why they're doing it they want attention from men especially

21 Snapchat Snapchat is an American multimedia instant messaging app and service developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc. One of the principal features of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are usually only available for a short time before they become inaccessible to their recipients. The app has evolved from originally focusing on person-to-person photo sharing to presently featuring users' "Stories" of 24 hours of chronological content, along with "Discover", letting brands show ad-supported short-form content. It also allows users to keep photos in the "my eyes only" which lets them keep their photos in a password-protected space. It has also reportedly incorporated limited use of end-to-end ...read more.

I mean is it sad this has become the go to for communicating now? Everyone basically texts on Snapchat nowadays

It's too confusing to use. I just don't understand it.

22 McDonald's

The idiots that replied to the two comments on this item are what make it overrated, so if you don't like that it's on the list, you can blame them.

Disgusting trash for the people who like to eat cardboard. This is an embarrassment to the food industry!

Best restaurant ever

23 Star Wars

As much as I love the OT, ROTS, and some of the games/shows nowadays the SW universe feels very worn out. I mean almost if not everything about the SW universe has been so worn out

Just because you don't think that it's overrated, doesn't mean that it isn't. Fans of Twilight and Nicki Minaj don't think that they're overrated. That don't mean that they aren't. Like Twilight and Nicki Minaj, Star Wars became very famous because of dumb, obsessed people. Plus, the credit that Star Wars gets was done by Star Trek several years before Star Wars came out. The major difference between the two is that Star Trek is not a heavy case of style over substance.

I hate how everybdoy likes the orginal star wars trilogy. I hate it because everybody spoils it, had bad acting, unlikeable characters (going on with bad acting), and a lot more. I feel really alone and sad that I'm the only one that's not a fanboy.

I was never really a fan of Star Wars, mainly because it had one dimensional characters, repetitive plots and too many movies. But my god people are so blinded by nostalgia. I respect what it did for fiction but I'm so sick and tired of hearing about this flick everywhere I go. I hear about it so much to the point where I just don't ever wanna see it again. There have been better movies and epics that came over the years. I seriously think we need to move on in life because I'm completely done with this film. Hopefully the next big thing will be a lot better if it'll ever happen.

24 Five Nights at Freddy's

FNAF is finally fading... A bit. I don't see it on the Internet 25/8, I don't hear it at school much, and there's finally not as much roleplay. But while this is slowing down, Undertale is speeding up, with a bad fandom, being everywhere, talk of it on the moon, and just gosh dang everywhere! Even my church is not safe from the horrors of the game Undertale. Rant is over.

It's just a crappy game that tries way too hard to be scary to the point it's just annoying. It's the same stupid jumpscare every time, yet it still attracts such a rabid fanbase.

The jump scares were pathetic, but no one has cared about this game since 2014.

FNAF is over now. They're chilling, less nsfw, but more terrible drawings on deviant. But the purpose from them isn't from chica's or mangle's ass

25 Nostalgia

This became very overrated during the 2010s, especially in the movie industry.

The past isn't as nice or as good as you remember it is.
