Most Overrated Bands of All TimePlantIsGod

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
Oh yeah? Try successfully covering Dance of Eternity without breaking. - naFrovivuS
THIS BAND HAS VERY EASY SOLO'S! TRY THEM!
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!
Dumbest band in the world
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 3 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
I hate van halen - gruppenfuhrer
What the.. ? Why is this band on the overrated list! I guess people just can not understand us so called Outcasts but that does mean you can hate on the songs we like. I am not implying for some of these good songs be put on the good list but I guess other people have different taste in music. I do think that Justin B, Miley Cyrus and all the annoying singers should be in this list. Our opinions are so overrated.
Anyways I love A. A hope you guys the best. -ARF
They are whiny scene kid garbage with some of the most generic songwriting in existence. End of story
Sounds like a bad porno name instead of a band
One of the staples in the metalcore genre. Good band.
Screamo = garbage - christangrant
Oasis is a mid quality band. They use too many simple chords. I could write way more complicated songs than Wonderwall in 5 minutes. By far too much overrated. And the fact they feel like if they were the next Beatles just irritates me. Overrated by fans and by themselves. And they are ASSES!
Just a Beatles rip-off. 0 creativity. Just plagiarizing 60's music. Mediocre music at its best.
The fact that they said Blur (a far more superior and talented band) should get AIDS and die is just terrible
I think their only good song is Roll With It, the other ones are so overrated - indie_PeepV 3 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
Let's face it, they became huge overnight only because metal hammer included them in one of their issues. Other than that, 3-4 cool songs and there rest is pop history -. -
Lamb of God is good, but they're not quite the second coming of Pantera that everyone tries to make them out to be.
They are a good band but most of their fans never explain as of WHY they like their music and in my opinion, most of their songs do not give much of a WOW factor. However! An underrated thing about them is that their music is very blues and western influenced, but without being stereotyphical. Remember also that the first form of Jazz is Klezmer.
One of the most underrated in my opinion - Gruunge
I have never heard of it, but I voted for it just for the name. A band that's actually called "The Naked Brother Band" can't be good. If it's succesful, it's totally overrated.
Wow, I completely forgot about these guys.
When was the last time I heard this band being mentioned, 2007? They were overrated back then, though.
I don't know who they are, but if they were popular in 2007 I should. They look like they're tenV 2 Comments
Put them at number one. Overrated, attention-seeking, inappropriate perverted chimpanzees they'll hopefully be irrelevant in the next few years. I'm glad bands like One Direction and Fifth Harmony aren't on here.
Should Be Way Higher Than 95 - VideoGamefan5
Why Are They Only 92 When They Should Be Number One
Duo not band but yeah - LucretiaV 1 Comment
This band is unique. Their songs that get a lot of radio airplay are no questions asked overrated songs (Uprising, Madness, etc.) They're great, I love those songs, but they're certainly overrated songs. However, if you explore outside of those songs and listen to Reapers, Bliss, Hysteria, Knights of Cydonia, Stockholm Syndrome, Assassin, The Handler, Supremacy, and Animals, you'll realize that they have an extremely underrated side to them as those songs completely slaughter their radio-friendly songs yet not many of them are radio staples. You also have to remember that Matt Bellamy and Chris Wolstenholme are no questions asked two of music's best musicians for their instrument. And Dominic Howard ain't no slouch either, he's extremely underrated as a drummer if you ask me as he has some great transitions that should not be overlooked. - DavidBondra
Don't know a lot about Muse, but they are not overrated. And to think that people compare them to utter crap that is Queen... Blasphemy
I find this band to be pretty great.
BUT HOW CAN'T YOU LIKE THE VOCALS?V 1 Comment
I love the Clash, I really do, they're great songwriters and musicians, but when someone says they're the "only band that mattered" makes me sick. - Tristan1975R5
Yes. They are a bit overhyped. Like many guys of this era, guitarist Mick Jones wishes he were Johnny Thunders.
Pathetic band with pathetic fanbase - VideoGamefan5
Should be a lot higher - Gruunge
Not my favorite, but not overrated.
All they did was make nu metal (one of the worst metal genres ever in my opinion) yet they're so liked by everyone else. I can understand why but it's hard not to be mad at them for making a genre that lacks substance and will eventually fade into obscurity in the next few years.
They are actually underrated. - LostDream258
Terrible overrated band that no one will remember in the next decade or so.V 1 Comment
Dave Mustaine is a much more better guitarist than a singer.
I don't find them underrated or overrated. - Gruunge
