Not metal but extremely Overrated - christangrant
Up! "Such a lonely day, and it's mine.."
More underrated in my opinion. - FlaMeThrOwer9
The most poseur band on the planet. The singer is in an orchestra! The lyrics have absolutely no meaning whatsoever in any shape or form. Terrible music!V 4 Comments
I like them but they're 12 year old scene girls only linking them for their looks.
They also try to be edgy but suck at music and the vocals sound like someone swallowed a frog, gargled saltwater fir an hour, and screamed into a briken mike set
Metalcore in general is overrated
They don't deserve fansV 1 Comment
Definitely can't take himself seriously. I mean, he was on Jersey Shore and was in an Adam Sandler movie for goodness' sake!
Ozzy Osbourne is a person not a band - jrodz
He is terrible he is so terible my ears bleeded out
Whenever I say "metal", the first thing that comes to people's minds is AC/DC. That's just wrong! - Rorywilbren
AC/DC is hard rock - zxm
We'll they're hard rock )
AC/DC kicks ass though
Not metal, but incredibly overrated. They have no variety in their sound and it’s way too simple. I’m not saying you have to have variety to be good, but AC/DC is just boring. - CostcoHotDogs
So Korn should be hated on for pioneering a genre which created some amazing and highly successful albums in the 90s. It's not their fault bands came with it. That literally makes no sense. Their new content is open for debate but they are hardly over rated they don't have that much presence in modern day metal. - rbodding
If it weren't for Korn there would be no Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park. I think that's reason enough.
Why do people like these guys? They're the ones who created nu metal. One of the most hated metal subgenres. If you people hate nu metal so much then blame Korn for it. They're the ones who made it.
I love KoRn, but they created an entire sub genre, and you have to respect that. - CostcoHotDogs

Seriously, have you HEARD their new music? They sold out worse than Green Day did. Better yet, they sold out worse than Metallica did. (And that's almost literally impossible. )
Started out ok but then turned into a fetty wap/little Wayne guitar solo type band. Absolutely terrible.
They are overhated. Just a bunch of kids having fun, no need to hate them. - SoldierOfFortune
I would say Babymetal is more weird than overrated. - ThatoneMetalhead
Why are they on the list
This band is awful. - RamblesV 1 Comment
I've never understood why they were places so high in critics eyes. They've got a few good songs but the majority of there music is nothing but filler - sextysex
Amon Amarth aren't overrated in the slightest. They're basically a bucket list of everything that makes a great band: brilliant and memorable riffs, great vocals, stellar lyrics that really capture the viking spirit, a terrific atmosphere, and they're highly consistent in quality. They're completely deserving of all their praise.
Nope. Amon Amarth deserve their praise. Their music is too awesome.
I'll never understand the hype surrounding this band. They have one phenomenal song, and that is Twilight of the Thunder God. After that... Everything just sounds like a bastard child of this song. CRIMINALLY overrated.
Overrated, fake "viking metal", only good and original song of theirs is Guardians of Asgaard and others are riffless "epic" songs with stupid growling. Growling and epicness do not blend. Period.V 2 Comments
I'm really, REALLY surprised they are not number one. - Roy_Aspiros
You can't be surprised, idiot. Guns N' Roses is not a heavy metal band. All those years, people couldn't understand this fact. Face the truth.
Death practically shaped the entire death metal genre and always managed to say one step ahead of their contemporaries (minus the crappy Sound of Perseverance). Not overrated in the slightest.
They're good but they weren't the first death metal band. Possessed was.
All of Death's albums were great except The Sound Of Perseverance which was okay. - Rambles
I don’t like death metal, but these guys are trash. I never understood the praise. They have one song I like. - CostcoHotDogsV 4 Comments
So overrated! I have no idea why so many people are into them. They're just boring, uninteresting, and mediocre at best. Really terrible band in my eyes.
Boring awful just no way interesting
I don't know why so many people like them. Most of their music sounds boring and monotonous due to the guitar tuning.
They suck ass? Using 7 string and 8 string guitars is just a terrible idea, as a guitarist I tend to avoid bands that tune any lower than drop B. And all the songs are creative, but they're terrible guitar tone ruins every possibly good song with they're "brutal" drop g# riff.
Are they really overrated? I've never met one person that would fess up to liking Hellyeah (rightfully so. They're garbage)
Are these guys overrated? Hell Yeah. - ThatoneMetalhead
1st album was pretty much or less good after that they sold out and became a stupid gothic band
The only Norwegian Black Metal band I don't like.
Dimmu Borgir are hardly overrated, they don't exactly get much praise, and all the trve-kvlt metalheads tend to label them as a disgrace to black metal (even though they're much closer to symphonic metal nowadays)
I Know their 2010 Abarahadabra Album Sucks, But This Guys Are Awesome and Real Symphonic Black Metal, They are Not a band Like Cradle of Filth, In My Opinion Cof even is Good band, But COF Is Not a Black Band!
In My Opinion they are Best Black Band After Burzum, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor, Gorgoroth, Immortal and Bathory!
Sorry, but Cannibal Corpse are definitely the most overrated death metal band. I hate it when people say they're better than legends such as Death, Autopsy, Morbid Angel, Entombed, etc. - IronSabbathPriest
This band ISN'T actually TERRIBLE, it's just that it gets way too much praise for mediocre guitar work, low quality locals, and poor lyrics. DM bands like: Death, Morbid Angel, COB, Opeth, Obituary, Decide, Etc. ARE MUCH better than this band. It also contributed to several negative stereotypes, contributing to a problem in metal. We're isolated enough already, no need to make it worse with bad lyrics. This band was too focused on shock value and making as much money from morbid curiosity, instead of making good music. Their "best" song, "Hammer Smashed Face" is mediocre at best.
They're not that bad, but the style gets old fairly soon, their albums are very similar and show little variation musically or lyrically
This should be number one.
These guys are garbage. There is absolutely no reason Metallica should be at the top of the list, they deserve their praise. Cannibal Corpse is the worst metal band. Period. - CostcoHotDogs
Band for beginners, but I don't think they are a good band.. Easy to listen for everyone with easy choruses, but I think most people gets tired of bands like this, switching to more interesting groups.
I think this band is only liked for its war theme which I think is disgusting.
Its an insult to every soldier to make happy drinking music with the war scenario.
Don't say anything bad about this awesome band! Michael Akerfeldt is one of the greatest songwriters in metal. Blackwater Park easily makes it into my top 10 albums of all time. - IronSabbathPriest
No positive or negative opinions regarding their musical ability or the quality of their albums and songs" I just think that the hype surrounding this band is insane: literally ANY negative feedback about Opeth is regarded as hypocrisy. No band should be that overrated.
They deserve no place on this list because they are the most underrated band I've ever heard
Only there first two albums were great. - Rambles
That has got to be a joke, still life, blackwater park, and ghost reveries are amazing records! - imabigpotatoV 1 Comment
Children Of Bodom is not overrated, you have just listened to their wrong stuffs, listen to their first 3 albums and you'll see their not overrated at all, Halo Of Blood is also great. They're actually one of the most underrated metal band
How are these guys below Amon Amarth? Compared them, Children of Boredom is terrible.
These guys deserve the hype. They are like Slayer, but Technical Death Metal... Which is pretty awesome. - ThatoneMetalhead
They suck so bad that I had to go to a hospital to replace my earsV 2 Comments
No. Never ever put lamb of god and overrated in a sentence.
