81 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.

82 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

83 Rise Against Rise Against Rise Against is an American hardcore punk band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. 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

Should not be here

Sweet home awbama blacksnakes boi god diddly darn

85 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.

86 Slayer Slayer ...read more.

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. - Lucretia

Have you heard these guys live? Seriously...

88 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.

89 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

90 Little Mix Little Mix Little Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011, consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

Brad Mendley didn't deserve more dislikes than likes from Little Mix fan-brats that say "they are more talented and successful than you! ):/".

These girls can sing, dance, and have an amazing friendship. Perrie is also one of the best female vocalists of this generation. Glad that they're only at 113. - BRB

Perris isn't the best female vocalist they are so unorignal so dull so thick the fanbase are brats they are slutty I don't know why they are famous

91 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.

92 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.
93 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?

94 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.

95 Culture Club Culture Club Culture Club are an English band that was formed in 1981. The band comprised Boy George, Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss.
96 Jackson 5
97 Europe Europe Europe is a Swedish rock band formed in Upplands Väsby, Stockholm in 1979 under the name Force by vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno.
