81 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

82 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

83 P.O.D. P.O.D.

Have you heard these guys live? Seriously...

84 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois . The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren . They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

Everyone I Know Likes Disturbed, I don't even know why, music is the same after the album, believe 10000 fists, Indestructible and Asylum are exactly the same, PUMP this Excuse of a Band up to least #2

False metal band that makes songs that appeal to kids who think they are badass for listening to "metal." Calling Disturbed a metal band is an insult to the actual metal bands that create powerful music and not recycled garbage.

85 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. In 2013 Gontier left the band due to creative differences. He was replaced with Brad's ...read more.

Crappy rock written for whiny teenagers.

Lyrics are terrible and cringy.

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

87 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

88 Lynyrd Skynyrd Lynyrd Skynyrd Lynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern rock genre during the 1970s They are known for songs like "Free Bird", "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Tuesdays Gone" .

Pisses me off that they're praised as the "best southern rock band" ever. It's all just typical mainstream stuff! If you want better southern rock bands listen to Blackfoot and Molly Hatchet

This band is very good

Should not be here

Sweet home awbama blacksnakes boi god diddly darn

89 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

90 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.

91 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.
92 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.

93 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.
94 Bee Gees Bee Gees The Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

Overrated but doesn't deserve to be on the list.

95 Jackson 5
96 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.
