81 Rush Rush Rush is a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. Even though the only founding member still in the band is Alex Lifeson (Guitar), the band is most well-known for their current members Neil Peart (Drums) and Geddy Lee (Bass, Vocals). ...read more.

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

This band is great and underrated! - Lucretia

82 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

Crappy rock written for whiny teenagers.

Lyrics are terrible and cringy.

83 EXO EXO Exo is a South Korean-Chinese boy group based in Seoul. Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2011, the group debuted in 2012 with twelve members separated into two subgroups, EXO-K and EXO-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively.

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 overrated

84 Keane Keane Keane are an English rock band from Battle, East Sussex, formed in 1995. The group currently comprises Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes, Jesse Quin and Tom Chaplin.

If I'm ever in the mood to slit my wrist's I'll listen to keane.

I actually think they're kind of underrated.

86 Pantera Pantera Pantera was a Heavy Metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Dimebag Darrell and drummer Vinnie Paul. The group got into mainstream after changing from Glam Metal to Groove Metal. The band's most successful album is "Vulgar Display of Power". As the pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, They ...read more.

Pantera helped change the heavy metal landscape. While Far Beyond Driven is no questions an overrated album, their influence on the guitar play and vocals and lyrical themes cannot be overstated. - DavidBondra

Who can call these guys Overrated if Dimebag Darrell can SHRED a solo into pieces

Dimebag Darrell is the best guitarist of all time. Phil Anselmo was extraordinarily talented. Go listen to the songs Floods, Cemetery Gates, Suicide Note pt. 1, The Art of Shredding, Physco Holiday, and Hollow. Such a versatile band; and, in the opinion of myself and many others, the best ever.

87 Culture Club
88 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.
89 Destiny's Child Destiny's Child Destiny's Child was an American girl group whose final and best-known line-up comprised Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams.

I hate their music. Always have. It's just not that great.

No, it is great. People only seem to hate them because Knowles got the attention. - Swellow

Wait. Were they even a band?

90 Vampire Weekend

They are pretty good actually, I think they're underrated

91 Scalene Scalene
92 Jackson 5
93 The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers

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 - Lucretia

94 Styx

One good song/ Come Sail Away/ nothing more.

95 Dir en grey Dir en grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.
96 REO Speedwagon
97 System of a Down System of a Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Nu Metal group from Glendale, California . The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. ...read more.

I personally think that system of a down is overrated but that is mainly because they are nothing more than a decent nu metal band and are nowhere near the uniqueness of 80's, 90's, and early 00's bands such as sonic youth, pavement, and my bloody valentine! And no I do not hate them - TheThomasThomas

Just because a song is overrated does NOT necessarily mean it's the best song. They make much better songs but people tend to follow the fad of only sticking to the overrated singles.

"Yeah, I love System of a Down"
"Oh yeah, what's your favorite song? "
"Chop Suey"
*Long and awkward pause

Chop suey is great but nowhere near their best work, how the hell are overrated? They don't make generic music, they shouldn't be at this no. Lol

Definitely not a bad band, but damn are they overrated.

100 Kansas Kansas Kansas is an American rock band that became popular in the 1970s initially on album-oriented rock charts and later with hit singles such as "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind".

Good band. Carry On My Wayward Son is one of the most epic songs created.

Underrated if anything. Masque possibly the most underrated album ever.
