Most Overrated Modern Bands


The Top Ten

1 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

My Chemical Romance is very overrated, never understood why people loved all their music. Black Parade is amazing, I’ll admit that, but I thought Three Cheers was just a bunch of noise and that Bullets deserved more praised. Can someone please explain to me why My Chemical Romance was the life saving band for all of the emo kids out there?

2nd worst band in the history of pop - TheMETALgiant

My Chemical Romance deserves all the love it gets, I don't think they're overrated

Terrible band. It surprises me why people like them so much. They're rap mixed with rock... In my opinion a very very bad combination!

Greatest band it should be at top

4 30 Seconds to Mars 30 Seconds to Mars Thirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band currently consists of brothers Jared and Shannon Leto.

Some of their old songs are good... but overrated. - GhostOfPerdition

These Guys are Absolutely Amazing, but Slightly Over-rated

I am a fan, but they are a BIT overrated. - GhostOfPerdition

Only a bit overrated. Only a bit.

10 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

One Direction is extraordinarily overrated. Their songs are unoriginal and uncreative, and though they may have a couple of decent, maybe above average vocalists, such as Zayn (I don't like him but he's a decent singer), their songs are actually musically and lyrically simple and not that impressive skill-wise. I don't see why iconic and talented bands are considered more overrated on this list. In fact I think Green Day and Linkin Park deserve the attention they get, and Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance are actually UNDERrated.

Whoever says they're the new Beatles really needs to listen to more music. The Beatles will always be a better band than One Direction; in fact, almost everything is better than listening to one of their songs.

Only liked because they look good, unoriginal and their fans worship them like gods.

The Contenders

13 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

Is not overrated. Limp Bizkit is the best. Enough said.

It was "Big Thursday", and it should go back to that. If I had my druthers, it'd be the Thursday of State Fair week, every year. I wouldn't mind it still being a "home ^^ away" series, but making it a fixture on Thursday would definitely give the rivalry the national spotlight it so richly deserves.

14 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). more.

They aren't really around anymore, but still... When they were I felt they were a bit overrated. There isn't a lot of variation in their songs; all their albums and songs have the same structure. Still, leagues and miles ahead of bands like "One Direction" and "Dragonforce. "

I am sad to see that Breaking Benjamin is actually on this list... they stomp on Black veil Brides and Pierce the Veil if they are even worthy of being called bands
