82 Papa Roach Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.
83 Big Time Rush

Please... These kids don't know what to sing about... They're lyrics are as stupid as they are... And they have poor sound... This is by far the worst on this list

They STOLE a good song and made it more famous! Thieves! We hates them forever!

They're bad, but I wouldn't say they're overrated. That would suggest people liked them in the first place.

I used to like these guys when J was little... now I realized that they are horrible - ExplosivePanther

84 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

They're not overrated, nor underrated. - naFrovivuS

86 The Beach Boys The Beach Boys The Beach Boys are an American pop rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

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.

87 Motley Crüe

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 crap

There was hundreds of band sounding better or the same as Crue in L.A in that time and all their lyrics are bullshit

The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes. They are known for popularizing punk.

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?

There underrated mate

UNDERRATED - zxm

This band is very good

Sweet home awbama blacksnakes boi god diddly darn

90 Tool Tool Tool is an American progressive metal/alternative metal band, that was formed in 1990. ...read more.

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

Underrated in my opinion - Lucretia

Their music is bland and repetitive

Not even one drum pattern or riff repeats, but yeah... might be hard listening with your head up in your arse.

91 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.

93 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

So overrated in Korea. - SamuiNeko

Fans makes the over-rated.

No they don't. Exo is really talented and really good group of guys. They shouldn't even be on this list

94 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.

95 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.
96 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?

97 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.

98 Culture Club Culture Club
99 Jackson 5
100 Vampire Weekend

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