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

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...
Good, but anyone who says better than Beatles is smoking somethin
They are one of the best not overrated they are not that popular - LucretiaV 7 Comments
Terrible. On every level. I think they made new levels of terrible.
Although BVB is overrated by many emo girls who simply like the look, black veil brides songs all in all aren't that bad. The riffs are actually pretty good but the bassist and drummer are a little artificial sounding.
Screamo is overrated trash - Lucretia
I hate when people claim they like 'rock music', but say their favorite bands are BVB and/or SWS.V 2 Comments
Their music was really good! And no one deserves to die (so stop saying hide needed to die, I hate Nirvana but I didn't wish death to Cobain). People can't expect them to sound like American metal because they're Japanese! Japanese metal will obviously sound different from American metal. You can't expect a Japanese singer to sound like an American singer. That's dumb. They were just not your typical metal band, but not bad.
I'm going to have to go find and listen to some X Japan just because the people on this website won't shut up about them. Apparently they're a better metal band than Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath and a better rock band than Led Zeppelin. I guess I should be excited. Why am I finding this so hard to believe...
why does everyone that knows japanese rock keep on telling that x-japan is the best band there are better japanese bands out there like DEAD END and D'ERLANGER and there are japanese bands have no credit. 80 credit to X-JAPAN, 20 credit to other pioneer bands. - ronluna
Weeaboos excuse for a rock bandV 8 Comments
Truly trash.. Just a copy of the backstreet boys, who were more original and had meaningful songs as well.
They're extremely underrated if anything. They helped spearhead the glam side of the new wave of British hard rock/heavy metal and were extremely influential to many artists like Guns 'N Roses and Whitesnake to name a few. Repetitive? Yes. But they are nonetheless an extremely underrated band. Pour Some Sugar On Me made them popular, but if you explore their catalog, they've got some much better songs like Photograph and Bringin' On The Heartbreak (a song that helped change hard rock ballads mind you.) - DavidBondra
Fair engough minus steve clark R.I.P
THIS BAND HAS VERY EASY SOLO'S! TRY THEM!
Were on the path to greatness, now will rot in electronic hell
Whoever likes this band has no brain whatsoever
They sucked since the beginning,just a generic band for teenage girls.In the same bracket as BVB.V 1 Comment
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

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.
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
Great band... Listen to "Gimme Shelter" and then come back and say they are overrated.
They are the best rock band almost not overrated - LucretiaV 11 Comments
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.V 4 Comments
Whoever thinks this band is overrated has zero musical taste. Rock and Pop aren't the only genres in the world. Pink Floyd is an art form.
The Beatles, Nirvana, U2, Queen, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, The Who, & Pink Floyd. This list is what's overrated.
Great band. If you think Pink Floyd sucks, you suck.
Wrote and performed some of the greatest hits ever. Dark Side of the Moon is one of the best-selling albums of all time. Wish You Were Here was wonderful. The Wall is maybe slightly overrated, but still holds some great songs. Can't say they're the most overrated. If you don't like them, stick with your own genre. - naFrovivuSV 17 Comments
Worst harmonies I've ever heard. They all must be tone deaf.
This band is great. They should not be on this list. - Rambles
Four hours of tuning up night after night.
Maybe ok if you're on acid ( every band is ok then! ) but otherwise a very bad band and certainly overrated.V 2 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.
The biggest overrated band in this list. The music is average at best. I get it when my parents said that all rock and roll is about screaming into the mic... nothing like their days of real singing like Frank Sinatra, etc. But this guy has no real music in his voice. The scraggly screaming like Born in the USA is awful. He has a few catchy tunes but not to be considered GOAT like many believe. I also hear you get a lecture at his concerts. Just what I am interested in after I dump $150 on a ticket.
He can't sing a lick.
His songs are all cliches.
WHO EVER POSTED THIS COMMENT! BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN IS 110% PASSION!
PTV is a talented group, they just get hate because they attract the stereotypical "scene" kids as fans.
The only famous song for this band is, king for a day.. kellin quinn make it famous with his amazing voice
PTV is a talentless group, their music sucks, emo fanbases, and horrible members that came from the highway where a lot of accidents happened.V 4 Comments
I cannot believe that the beatles are on here. Have you not heard the rest of the music in the early 60's or late 50's? That's what the Beatles sound like. Numetal bands all sound the same too but only one of those is in the top ten. You people are out of your minds thats like saying that's like saying that jimi can't play the guitar. Nirvana is not overrated either them and Mudhoney completely revolutionized the sound of music. - IknowAlotAboutMusic
DragonForce is a horrible band that dare to call themselves "METAL". They are self obsessed and will never be a good band. They speed up there music in the studio so everyone believes they are God. Herman Li is overrated and their wimpy fans dare to claim they are the next wonder of the world. If you don't believe me about there use of the studio listen to them live and you will understand.
Cheesier than the entire state of Wisconsin and cornier than the entire state of Nebraska.
Not the best power metal band - LucretiaV 7 Comments
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.
