Most Overrated Bands of All TimePlantIsGod

The Offspring are not overrated. Songs like Kids aren't alright, Pretty Fly (for a white guy) and Self esteem are some of the best punk rock songs ever made. - swagmaster97V 1 Comment
The Velvet Underground are responsible for the creation of art and alternative rock. No band before them had a sound quite as unique as them. You can argue that they had only one great album. Okay, fine. However, that one album has had a massive influence on many artists. The saying is this, "Not everyone owned music by the Velvet Underground. However, those who did formed successful bands of their own." Alternative music was born here and while they didn't find much success, success does not always equal influence. Coldplay is more successful, but far less influential than the Velvet Underground. They're far from overrated. If anything, they're probably one of the ten most underrated bands of all time. - DavidBondra
I was once told that the Velvet Underground "invented" modern music, and I know many music critics would agree. They may not be so recognized by the mainstream, but among all the critics who remain convinced that the Velvets were nothing short of genius, they're extremely overrated
How are they overrated? Without them, we wouldn't know most of rock and indie bands.
Lol if these guys didn't exist, neither would your favorite band. So do me a favor and grow some ears.V 2 Comments
Lyrically whinny. Musically outdated.
If you're one of those people who haven't outgrown your early high-school emo phase, with songs like "Join Me in Death" from the hilariously titled album "Razorblade Romance", yeah... This band is for you.

Last time I checked George Michael is one person, not a bandV 1 Comment
The sad thing is that this was no doubt voted up by rap fans who will quickly say that Eminem is the best rapper of all time, seeing as there would be no Eminem without the Beastie Boys. The Beastie Boys also happened to release classic and influential albums that are only unappreciated because rap fans nowadays only listen to music 2 decades old and up and don't appreciate anything else. They are not overrated, not by a longshot.
Overrated as hell. They literally only released 7 Nation Army (Which, in my opinion is garbage. Gets worse when lyrics start)
More like UNDERRATED. 22 years later and I still don't know a single person who has even heard of or heard any work from this talented group.
Have you heard these guys live? Seriously...
Cream does not suck
Cream overrated? We got one of the best guitar player of all time, one of the best drummer of all time and one of the best bass player of all time.
Overrated by the fact they almost didn't release a thing. But damn, they were good
The Beatles, Nirvana, U2, Queen, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, The Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush, The Eagles, Guns N' Roses, The Rolling Stones, and now CREAM!? Why? These guys are awesome!?V 1 Comment
I don't HATE these guys, but most of their songs are boring or dull. Michael Stripe has no power to his voice, and often drags down songs.
They have 5 good songs and those are all good. They lack out on other greats though.
1: Losing My Religion
2: It's The End Of The World
3: The One I Love
4: Everybody Hurts
5: Radio Free Europe
Here are some other songs you might wanna check out: Man on the Moon, Nightswimming, Don't Go Back to Rockville, What's the Frequency Kenneth, Drive, Driver Eight, Stand, Orange Crush, Bang and Blame,...V 1 Comment
I'll admit not a ton of people know who they are, but they get WAY too much credit as band by their fans, who insist on shoving their biased ideologies about how great R5 down your throat if you DARE "assault" them by saying that R5 sucks. They are the worst band ever, and get way too much credit for doing pretty much nothing, while there are people who work day and night to learn to play real instruments and really sing real music, but get absolutely no recognition. This band is one of a few that solidified my belief that music is never getting back to he standards that were set before autotune was invented. Auto-tune pretty much describes this band's "music" in a nutshell.
Prime example of a band that people either don't know or love way too much. I know this one girl who obsesses over their music. I'll say it now, compared to other artists in today's world, they are AWFUL. They make Limp Bizkit look like musical geniuses that should have won every award at the Grammy's. - DavidBondra
This band is so bad, that having any fans makes them overrated.
They aren't overrated at all if anything they are the most underrated band ever. I'll admit they have strange songs but you rarely rarely will have any two songs sound alike plus they are the most versatile band ever and play music in any genre because they can pull that off.
Mike Patton is a great vocalist, But people are saying these guys are the best of all time? Give me a break.
Too many people over praise them. They ain't that great to me
