Most Overrated Bands of All TimePlantIsGod
The Contenders: Page 6
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? "
*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.V 4 Comments
So repetitive. Head Games and Cold as Ice suck although they are huge songs!V 1 Comment
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.
When you look up "Whiny" on Google, one of the results is Simple Plan's homepage. No joke, try it out.
A bunch of grown men in their forties who haven't seemed to mature at all over time. Their lyrics have gotten whinier over the years, which is odd because, shouldn't people's music mature with the band? - RobynTM
They're like a crappy mix of Linkin Park and Blink-182.
They're a whiny, generic, and immature pop punk band that have some of the most juvenile lyrics ever.V 4 Comments
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.
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 band
Careless Whisper Is Weird And Appeared In YouTube Poops - CuteGirlJigglypuff
I don't have faith.
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
One Direction, The Naked Brothers Band, 5 Seconds of Summer and especially Kidz Bop get too much credit for doing nothing either.
This band is so bad, that having any fans makes them overrated.
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)
Brad Mendley didn't deserve more dislikes than likes from Little Mix fan-brats that say "they are more talented and successful than you! ):/".
Have you heard these guys live? Seriously...
