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
It all went wrong after hysteria - gruppenfuhrer
Fair engough minus steve clark R.I.P
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
(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
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
Was he seriously not on the list he is extremely Overrated not to mention HE RUINED HIGHWAY TO HELL - christangrant
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
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.
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.
Somebody ban everybody who submitted something - HimalayansaltV 12 Comments
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.
