Most Overrated Linkin Park Songs

There were a few Linkin Park songs that received just too much fame. Vote for the song which you feel was the most overrated.

The Top Ten

1 Waiting for the End Waiting for the End

Not even catchy... This is the WORST SONG BY Linkin Park... WASTELANDS IS SECOND. I don't even know why people say that this is one of their best songs

I agree in this one, I don't know why people always vote for this as one of the best!

I totally agree. This is a weak song in my opinion, don't deserve top 10...

A truly overrated song. Received too much attention when A Thousand Suns released though it's a little different for Linkin Park and truly, not up to the standards. - drishtantsolomon

2 Burn It Down Burn It Down

Good song but Lost in the Echo, Lies Greed Misery, Victimized and such songs from Living Things are way better, not to mention Hybrid Theory and Meteora. It IS good compared to A Thousand Suns, but it is just an average song compared to many others. - savajevtic

Terrible song, and definitely the worst thing the band has ever done. - WonkeyDude98

Totally. I wanna burn down this song. - NikBrusk

3 In the End In the End

This song is average at best I've heard better but I've heard worse never was a Linkin Park fan never will be oh well and this song is so overrated I would rather be deaf then listen to it over and over on the radio. - BoredJeff02


God, that chorus annoys me. It makes me want to mimick Chester Bennington in a high pitched voice. Even back when I liked Linkin Park, I never understood what all the fuss was about. - IronSabbathPriest

A Great song but there are too many anime music video songs that use this song.

4 Numb Numb

This song is awesome but there are far better songs

This song isn't bad, but not the best from Meteora! Kinda too soft and sad on one of their videos!

Numb is OVER RATED, probably not.
Numb is ONE greatest song from meteora!

5 What I've Done What I've Done

This song is great! It's nowhere near overrated!

If nothing else this is their best. - WonkeyDude98

6 New Divide New Divide
7 Castle of Glass Castle of Glass
8 Bleed It Out Bleed It Out

Insanely overrated, like it's the best music they've ever come up with. True the song's pretty good, but definitely no match for some of Linkin Park's legends like one step closer, lying from you, no more sorrow and in my remains.

9 Faint Faint
10 Leave Out All the Rest Leave Out All the Rest

A simple song from Minutes to Midnight. It's good but overrated. - drishtantsolomon

The Contenders

11 Iridescent Iridescent

What? This song is awesome along with bleed it out and waiting for the end. This entire list is pointless

Gained great fame when it was chosen as the theme song for Transformers 3. Yes, it is highly overrated. This song from A Thousand Suns is too slow and boring to get so much fame. - drishtantsolomon

12 Lost In the Echo Lost In the Echo
13 One Step Closer One Step Closer
14 The Catalyst The Catalyst

Definitely not one of their best, OVERRATED!

15 Burning In the Skies Burning In the Skies

Featured on Billboard, this song from Minutes to Midnight was given too much importance. Again, it isn't what Linkin Park is known for. - drishtantsolomon

This song is from A Thousand Suns. Get your facts straight before you say something

16 Wretches and Kings Wretches and Kings

Song from A Thousand Suns that gained fame for Mike Shinoda's rap. It is another overrated song. - drishtantsolomon

17 From the Inside From the Inside

From The Inside gained too much attention. It wasn't really great while some other songs from Meteora were much better. - drishtantsolomon

18 Valentine's Day Valentine's Day

Another song from Minutes to Midnight that is very much overrated. - drishtantsolomon

19 Guilty All the Same Guilty All the Same

This music is really overrated! There are better songs like Halo, Bunker, Stick And Move, Holding Company And Much More!
