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 love this band! Why are they even on this list?!
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.
Not a single one of them could playV 3 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.
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
I like this band, really. I just can't get into the vocals. But I do really like the instrumentals in most of their songs, and Absolution and Black Holes And Revelations are both good albums. I just can't see them being ranked one of the best alternative bands ever. - UltraFX
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.V 2 Comments
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.
Why do people like this band so much? All they did was make nu metal which everyone hates (including me). Plus, their first two albums weren't really that emotional or heavy to me, at least in my opinion.
Terrible overrated band that no one will remember in the next decade or so.V 1 Comment
Brian Wilson did things in the studio, with instruments, voices and vocal arrangement that had never been done before. Every band since has used all or some of his technique. He did it first on Best!
You know I used to hate the beach boys but now I o enjoy many of their songs. They're not my favorite band but they are pretty talented. And to the person who wrote the comment about them plagiarizing all their songs, it was one song.
Overrated? They are more of underrated. - zxm
Generic pop. Zero talent.V 2 Comments
Every fan-service boy/girlband has their overreacting fans. I'm talking about those Korean groups. but I've seen exo before and I'm a man, I'd say they're not as bad as the other boyband, but still.. maybe it's the media or their face-first-before-talent-fans that make this band overratedV 2 Comments
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.
Sucks ass... Your basically scene queens if you listen to this.V 2 Comments
More weeaboo crap for the otakus to fan girl over. Like music really needs more Asian guys piling on make-up and doing a few poorly executed growls.V 1 Comment
Untalented musicians = unaware fans
Not a bad band. Yes, Kellin Quinn does sound like a girl, but I think the issue with SWS is more so them being marketed as a metalcore/post-hardcore band and not actually being one.
Tom sawyer is an overrates song, but the band? Absolutely not! Those who have voted have probably never listened to any of Rush's epics from A Farewell To Kings or Hemispheres. They barely get any radio play and they don't sell much, so they can't even be called overrated. Plus they are the most musically talented band to exist
I've found that some fans of Rush become so enamored by this band that they become musical snobs and ridicule other forms of music and bands they see as not as superior. That's the height of arrogance in my opinion. Rush is good and they have good music but to take the opinion that something basic and straight forward has no musical merit is just narrow-minded.
I listen to other music BESIDES Rush. Also, it's not really the fans that are snobbish. It's just that not many people know this band. Besides, I just love the band a lot. - MusicalPony
Definitely not an overrated band they are the best you can get when I comes to classic rock. whoever put them up here as overrated surely does not know great music when they here hear it, and last of all, they are a three man band, they sound pretty damn good for a 3 man band I have seen the 21 times and I will see them as many more times as I can
Goes to show that being technically accomplished isn't everything. This band seem to have a hard time with coming up with stuff that's actually listenable. For example, Spirit of the Radio opens with a guitar riff from Alex Lifeson that sounds like it's going to sound incredible Once it kicks into high gear. However, Peart and Lee enter with a weird, off-beat rhythm that throws it off. That they can play a rhythm like that is cool, but it ruins what could have have been a badass song.
Lifeson's cool, but Peart and Lee seem a little too technical for their own good.
To the second comment, then listen to their songs there not bad kickstart my heart is great
I've never understood their appeal
Home is really good a and Dr feel good is catchy, but the rest of their music is crapV 1 Comment
What the hell is the deal with this list. There are too many rock bands on here. You can't listen to rock without one band you like being on here. I didn't even know Rise against existed until a few years ago. How is this here?V 2 Comments
They are pretty repetitive, but honestly if you could change the landscape of hardcore music with every album you release, you can be seen as overrated
Their music is bland and repetitiveV 1 Comment
Crappy rock written for whiny teenagers.V 1 Comment
