121 Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

Sucks ass... Your basically scene queens if you listen to this.

Never heard of them... can't be overrated.

Wah everyone hates me I hate my life
That's all of their songs

122 Moi dix Mois
123 R.E.M

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,...

REM IS good

124 Faith No More Faith No More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

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.

125 The Smiths The Smiths The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce.

Most of their music puts me in a coma. And its serious.

Shh. They're awesome.

126 Manowar Manowar Manowar is an American heavy metal band from New York City, New York. Formed in 1980, the group is known for lyrics based on fantasy and mythology.

Too many people over praise them. They ain't that great to me

127 ZZ Top ZZ Top ZZ Top is an American rock band that formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. The band is composed of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hill, guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, and drummer Frank Beard.

The Beatles number 3? Ha! That's hilarious!

132 Bangtan Boys Bangtan Boys BTS, also known as Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy group formed by Big Hit Entertainment.

Basically any generic K-Pop boy band. Way too much autotune... Weird dancing... Generic beats... Lyrics that don't make sense... Notes hat don't sound like real notes... Random noises... Odd music videos... Basically the whole package. - JamesBourne

133 Dragonforce Dragonforce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

I cannot believe that the beatles are on here. Have you not heard the rest of the music in the early 60's or late 50's? That's what the Beatles sound like. Numetal bands all sound the same too but only one of those is in the top ten. You people are out of your minds thats like saying that's like saying that jimi can't play the guitar. Nirvana is not overrated either them and Mudhoney completely revolutionized the sound of music. - IknowAlotAboutMusic

DragonForce is a horrible band that dare to call themselves "METAL". They are self obsessed and will never be a good band. They speed up there music in the studio so everyone believes they are God. Herman Li is overrated and their wimpy fans dare to claim they are the next wonder of the world. If you don't believe me about there use of the studio listen to them live and you will understand.

Cheesier than the entire state of Wisconsin and cornier than the entire state of Nebraska.

Not the best power metal band - Lucretia

134 Soundgarden Soundgarden Soundgarden is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1984 by singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell, lead guitarist Kim Thayil, and bassist Hiro Yamamoto.

Who put this here? Soundgarden is a great band. They aren't overrated at all. I think they're kind of underrated. Just listen to badmotorfinger or superunknown. - Imreallyboredrightnow

135 the gazzettE

More weeaboo crap for the otakus to fan girl over. Like music really needs more Asian guys piling on make-up and doing a few poorly executed growls.

136 Barenaked Ladies Barenaked Ladies Barenaked Ladies is a Canadian rock band. The band is currently composed of Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson, and Tyler Stewart.

To be overrated, they have to be rated highly. I think most have forgotten about them by now.

Don't blame on me but I don't even know this band, so I don't see whats overrated about it lol

The last time I even heard this band mentioned was several years ago.

137 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

138 Evanescence Evanescence Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

They're not horrible but a lot of people only like them because of Amy's vocals not the rest of the band and music

Now don't get me wrong, Amy Lee is an amazing vocalist. She can hit the high notes perfectly, and the power of her voice allows her to do a good nu-metal (which is usually garbage) vocal. However, the problem with the band lays within the lyrics, which are just as generic as anything and angsty as Linkin Park or Good Charlotte. They're really only known for their two worst hits; My Immortal, where the bland lyrics of depression problems stand out, and the forced sympathetic My Immortal. I am not saying they are bad, but seriously, they've had much better and much better groups exist. - Swellow

Generic lyrics and music. Amy Lee is a good singer but compared to some other symphonic rock singers... This band is basically worshipped because Amy Lee is apparently such a "great" singer

Amy Lee is nowhere close to the greatest singer. Her voice is kinda dull. - naFrovivuS

The father of awesome Scandinavian death metakl not overrated.

140 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

I hate Pearl Jam. I cannot stand listening to Eddie Vedder. They definitely suck.

I can't believe people classify them as grunge. They're not grunge at all. If anything they're post-grunge. - Gruunge

Pearl jam are the best!

I disagree because they're my favorite band - jack2244
