Most Overrated Bands of All TimePlantIsGod
The Contenders: Page 3
Screw Bon Jovi. They're pretty much the One Direction of the 80s. They constantly get called "legends" just because they're old, which is NOWHERE NEAR true. "Livin' on a Prayer" is a horrendously cheesy hair metal anthem about some weird story that makes no sense, and also has the most unnecessary guitar solo I've ever heard. Jon Bon Jovi is an AWFUL singer, and he constantly looks and sounds like he wants to vomit. "Always" is just a broken, cheesy break-up song about someone that HE probably cheated on. "It's My Life" is yet another annoying anthem about nothing. Anyways, come at me, senior citizens with your poorly-spelled comebacks.
I don't think they're overrated! Unless people really do call them the best band of all time. I've never heard people say that, but if they do, yeah, that's going a bit far. Bon Jovi is good. They're not THAT good.
Boring music but great hair.
I don't think people even talked about Bon Jovi after the 80s - HimalayansaltV 4 Comments
(facepalm) really you do know that tenacious d is a comedy band right
Yeah this band is a joke. Literally it's a comedy band. Nice name though! Haha funny stuff
This band is underrated if anything oh and it's not even a real band it's just a joke - Himalayansalt
They are not even a band just piss - gruppenfuhrerV 1 Comment
What? I love imagine dragons! OK, I get it, their music isn't for everybody, and they do have an extremely diverse pool of music, but they still aren't overrated. In fact, I don't think they are underrated either. Just think about the lyrics. (wow they actually tell a story! ) Also, everyone here is just complaining about Radioactive. Sure, the song was super overplayed on the radio and started to grow on me, they still have really good songs! Monster, Thief, Bleeding Out, Roots, Dream, are all really good songs (just to name a few) So please listen to all their songs and just don't base this upon one song. Also I get if you don't like them, they do get a little while to get used to.
Radioactive wasn't too annoying until kids in my class started singing it over and over to the point where I started to hate the band. Hearing some of their other songs, I can see why people hate them so much. Because they have very generic pop rock music.
Unfortunately, this is probably the Rock Band that we will be looking forward to in the future until there are bands that are as good as The White Stripes, or The Black Keys. - MusicalPony
I tried listening to this band and getting used to them but I just can't! They are the only band I can't listen to! Radioactive is a song that I've heard so much that I almost gave up on all music completely
Radioactive isn't their only song, you know. Listen to Bleeding Out, Friction, All Eyes, Emma, Round And Round, Selene, Monster, and 30 Lives, then come back and tell me that they are that unbearable. - WonkeyDude98
I'm glad that imagine dragons is this low because they're not overrated at allV 8 Comments
Marilyn Manson is an awesome band! It's so easy to relate to the songs and despite they are getting old, they are still doing great stuff!
Was he seriously not on the list he is extremely Overrated not to mention HE RUINED HIGHWAY TO HELL - christangrant
I'll agree that the singers voice is whiny and could be better, but other than that this band is pretty good. Not overrated in my opinion. - Imreallyboredrightnow
Billy's cat being strangled to death voice ripped this bands talent quality down by half percent. Why was he allowed to front this band.
Bull..not one of the best bands..but it's anything but overrated..they're music is amazingV 2 Comments
Alive 2007 is good, but guys, they're not the second coming of jesus or something. They're not great, they're just good. Calm down.
They made the most repetitive song ever.
Their music is BAD!
This is a terrible band. They have lack of talent and they have "Pharell Willams" - kmyeakel
Is this music at all or the mentally handicapped flailing instruments around with masks on? - gamefreak198
Terrible band... the Beatles are the greatest - jwileson
They are just a band of dumbasses who are dressed up as clowns. Their music is just horrible. Makes my ears bleed. What has music come to. And why are the Beatles on here? - llamaboy17
These guys suck, that's all there is to say - HimalayansaltV 8 Comments
Truly trash.. Just a copy of the backstreet boys, who were more original and had meaningful songs as well.
1 of the best, if not best live bands I have seen. There work has become commercialised of late but they have had a big change in their line up, as they have throughout their history and always delivered. Who would have thought a band would come close to their best after bringing out one of the best albums of all time, blood sugar sex magic. They delivered with CALIFORNICATION and BY THE WAY, Then slipped back to commercial songs on STAD ARC. They will come good again with a young talent in Klinkonhoffer.
They are all right, but overrated, but the only thing that makes them overrated it, is because they are sellouts, there new album has proven my point
I actually think they have some good hits. I love Dani California. That song is so addicting.
Yes. they are douchey, and I'd like to be more descriptive and articulate but I am afraid that's the only word I can think of when it comes to them.
They're kinda like live Muzak
I love this band! Why are they even on this list?!
False metal band that makes songs that appeal to kids who think they are badass for listening to "metal." Calling Disturbed a metal band is an insult to the actual metal bands that create powerful music and not recycled garbage.
Everyone I Know Likes Disturbed, I don't even know why, music is the same after the album, believe 10000 fists, Indestructible and Asylum are exactly the same, PUMP this Excuse of a Band up to least #2
Were on the path to greatness, now will rot in electronic hell
Whoever likes this band has no brain whatsoever
Emo sucks anyway
They sucked since the beginning,just a generic band for teenage girls.In the same bracket as BVB.
Good band but overrated! They have done some really good songs but I can't listen to an album without skipping quite a few tracks. All hyped up!
"Do I Wanna Know? " Is basically the only song most people know by them, so great job media for over praising this band. Name 5 songs I dare you.
Arctic Monkeys are ok, but there music has become more bland these past few years. I think that Arctic Monkeys have lost their 'fun' that they had back in their first two albums. However, this favored for them because they became much popular with their album AM. - swagmaster97
Overplayed mediocre rock.V 3 Comments
They aren't overrated, they are great, they have got some of the best songs of all time. Gimme Shelter, Sympathy for the Devil, You Can't Always Get What You Want, Paint It, Black, Wild Horses, It's Only Rock N Roll, Jumpin' Jack Flash, Can't You Hear Me Knocking... They are really really good on what they do... MUSIC... But they are bad persons, just because one thing: They are talking about war and about bigger problems, and they doesn't seem to understand they aren't going to stop until you solve the little ones: Brian Jones, they left a lost man alone, think about that
The Beatles, Nirvana, U2, Queen, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, The Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush, The Eagles, Guns N' Roses, and The Rolling Stones. These bands aren't overrated, they're good. There's a big difference. Sympathy for the Devil is one of the best songs of all time. I will admit, though, that Satisfaction is as overrated as hell.
Great band... Listen to "Gimme Shelter" and then come back and say they are overrated.

I think these guys are actually very underrated. Keith Moon played drums at a pace that even some scientists say wasn't humanly possible. Pete Townshend may be the most underrated guitarist (and songwriter) ever. Jon Entwhistle is one of the best bass players ever, and Roger Daltrey is an ultra-talented singer and actor. A "few"good songs? Are you serious? The Who's thirtieth best song is better than the best song of most bands. Anything off of Tommy, Quadraphenia, Hooligans, Who's next, etc, etc
Chill out people... Just because you like something doesn't mean other music is bad. Nirvana fans: "the Beatles SUCK why on earth would you vote for nirvana they revolutionized 90s Rock? " True. Beatles fans: "Nirvana SUCKS they basically created rock music! " Well maybe not quite true but still they were EXTREMELY revolutionary. I just rember I used to hate a band... Gave them a fair listen and now they're one of my favorites. And how can ICP possibly be overrated when everybody hates them except like one group of people...
They are certainly not overrated. Keith Moon invented a new kind of drumstyle in rock and pop. Pete Townsend was the first to incorporate pop-art and rockmusic together. Their sound and lyrics were unique at the time ( especcially in the sixties ), smashing guitars, amps... was all new ( when they smashed their equipment at the Monterey pop festival all American hippies didn't understand what was happening ). They can't be overrated for being inventive and for the songs they sung and composed. My question is " In what are they overrated? ". A unique band that doesn't belong here.
They are one of the best not overrated they are not that popular - LucretiaV 7 Comments
It would be a better world without trolls - Himalayansalt
They're good, but their songs go on forever and repeat and repeat and repeat - Himalayansalt
This band is great. They should not be on this list. - Rambles
Four hours of tuning up night after night.
Worst harmonies I've ever heard. They all must be tone deaf.V 3 Comments
Arcade Fire is a great band. Way better than most music these days. Arcade Fire is bold enough to experiment with new styles and does so very well. Currently one of the best bands.
More like Dumpster Fire.
Reminds me of marmite
Seriously, radiohead and oasis I can understand, but why do Q praise these guys so much!? I listen to all sorts (I mean 60s to last month, almost every genre) but not one song is memorable in my opinion (the vaccines are even more memorable). Also why watchmojo have dedicated a list to them and not blur, kaiser Chiefs or even the Beatles (which I'll admit they'll probably get round to).
Then again, music is music and whilst I personally dislike AF, they're amazing if you compare them to 1D.
I know every metal head is going to kill me for this, but Slayer are overrated. Their riffs are bland, they recycled a lot and frankly aren't as good as every metal head says they R. I wouldn't call them bad, but they're still overrated. - Kyo
Easily one of the most overrated metal bands of all time. I'm not saying they're bad. it's just that critics and people say they're the heaviest band of all time when in reality there's much more heavier bands out there like Kreator, Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, Meshuggah, Nile, Napalm Death, even Strapping Young Lad. Plus, all their songs sound the same. Same riffs, same lyrics, all going on since day one. They really do get too much credit. I respect them for being influential but they just simply get too much credit.
All their first albums from Show No Mercy to Seasons in the abyss are just fine (reign in blood is awesome) but it's always the same! Solos are poor, riffs are recycled and the signing isn't original at all...
Slayer isn't overrated but Megadeth, Metallica, and ANthrax are. - LucretiaV 4 Comments
