This is a joke, right? It has to be a joke. It is impossible to over rate this band. Bruce Dickinson is one the greatest singers of all time. He still has an amzing voice after decades of touring. Well written songs, talented musicians, still recording albums and touring to sold out areanas.

Sorry for the bad spelling

The best metal band to exist and people have the audacity to put it on this list? Opinions be damned.

Maiden is great and surely not overrated. Your argument is invalid.

Porbably the greatest bad of metal.. a few facts about bruce dickinson singer,qualified pilot allowed to fly a 747 and 757, owns his own AIRLINE,and is a badass.

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!?

148 The Ramones The Ramones The Ramones were an American punk rock band that formed in the New York City neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974. They are often cited as the first band to define the punk rock sound.

They are like American Rolling Stones but they are just a bit more undertalented. Also the most mainstream popish punk rock bands ever.

The ramones have plenty of flaws, but give them some slack because, as far as I can tell, they invented punk - RecklessGreed
