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 In the End In the End

Honestly this song is mediocre compared to masterpieces like Castle of Glass, One Step Closer, A Place for My Head, etc. - Camaro6

It's a good song, but there are much better Linkin Park songs. - Userguy44

It's very overrated, but I don't hate this song. It has nice lyrics and Chester's voice is good. - Userguy44

Mediocre song at best - Camaro6

2 Burn It Down Burn It Down

This is a good song in my opinion. - Userguy44

I like this song though. - Camaro6

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

3 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

4 Numb

Meteora has better songs. Examples are, Don't Stay, Somewhere I Belong, Easier To Run, Breaking The Habit and From The Inside. - Userguy44

This is like, their best one, it is not even overrated, it is a fact! - Johnalove

This song is awesome but there are far better songs

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

5 What I've Done

This is a great song - Userguy44

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

6 New Divide
7 Castle of Glass

Not overrated - Camaro6

8 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

Overrated but good - Camaro6

This song is SO overrated. There are way better Linkin Park songs than Faint. - TheDarkOne_221b

Hmmm. I like it. - Userguy44

10 Leave Out All the Rest

Gets too much love just because Chester died so "it means so much! "

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

The Contenders

11 One Step Closer

I love this song - Camaro6

Cool instrumentals and vocals,but the lyrics are too generic and didn't really showcase how unique the band was to its peers.

12 Lost In the Echo
13 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

14 The Catalyst

Definitely not one of their best, OVERRATED!

15 Wretches and Kings

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

16 Guilty All the Same

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

17 Blackout
18 Burning In the Skies

I find it one of the most underatted song from them. in my opinion it deserves to be one of the best! - Rathernotbenamed

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

19 Valentine's Day

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

This is probably the most underrated song on all of MtM - MrPuggy

20 A Light That Never Comes

It sucks it.
Is boring and yet it is on the radio

21 Crawling

I honestly liked songs like A Place For My Head and Bleed It Out better, I think it's one of their most overrated songs if not In The End and New Divide

22 One More Light
23 Shadow of the Day
24 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

Not really. This is actually underrated. I haven't heard much people mention From The Inside. - TheDarkOne_221b

25 Points of Authority

A good song but not the best. Linkin Park has many better ones and this was another overrated song. - drishtantsolomon

26 Papercut
27 Lies Greed Misery
28 Pushing Me Away

Never been a favorite of mine, NEVER WILL BE. Hybrid Theory's second worst besides In The End
