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

123 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.

124 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.

125 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

126 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.

134 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

135 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

136 Rush Rush Rush is a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. Even though the only founding member still in the band is Alex Lifeson (Guitar), the band is most well-known for their current members Neil Peart (Drums) and Geddy Lee (Bass, Vocals). ...read more.

Tom sawyer is an overrates song, but the band? Absolutely not! Those who have voted have probably never listened to any of Rush's epics from A Farewell To Kings or Hemispheres. They barely get any radio play and they don't sell much, so they can't even be called overrated. Plus they are the most musically talented band to exist

I've found that some fans of Rush become so enamored by this band that they become musical snobs and ridicule other forms of music and bands they see as not as superior. That's the height of arrogance in my opinion. Rush is good and they have good music but to take the opinion that something basic and straight forward has no musical merit is just narrow-minded.

I listen to other music BESIDES Rush. Also, it's not really the fans that are snobbish. It's just that not many people know this band. Besides, I just love the band a lot. - MusicalPony

Definitely not an overrated band they are the best you can get when I comes to classic rock. whoever put them up here as overrated surely does not know great music when they here hear it, and last of all, they are a three man band, they sound pretty damn good for a 3 man band I have seen the 21 times and I will see them as many more times as I can

Rush is not overrated. Tom Sawyer is overrated maybe, but you clearly haven't listened to any of their other songs. 2112, La Villa Strangiato, Limelight, YYZ, Subdivisons...
Heck, they're not even overrated in the prog genre! They're not underrated either, but definitely not overrated. - naFrovivuS

137 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

138 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?

139 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.

140 Red Hot Chili Peppers Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili Peppers is an American funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. ...read more.

1 of the best, if not best live bands I have seen. There work has become commercialised of late but they have had a big change in their line up, as they have throughout their history and always delivered. Who would have thought a band would come close to their best after bringing out one of the best albums of all time, blood sugar sex magic. They delivered with CALIFORNICATION and BY THE WAY, Then slipped back to commercial songs on STAD ARC. They will come good again with a young talent in Klinkonhoffer.

They are all right, but overrated, but the only thing that makes them overrated it, is because they are sellouts, there new album has proven my point

I actually think they have some good hits. I love Dani California. That song is so addicting.

I swear to god, is sex all Kiedis sings about?
