141 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.

142 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

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

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!?

Extremely overrated.

152 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

Little bit of overrated. - zxm
