Most Overrated Music Artists
The Top Ten
Yeah, you people hate Kurt Cobain and Eminem and Metallica and all of those great people? Tell me, what's so great about the Jonas Brothers? Beep, nothing. They have been making mediocre music for WAY too long, I'm fed up, all the straight guys are fed up, they're only going on because Disney-addict girls love them and gay people love their skinny jeans. Period. They SUCK. Please disappear, guys.
Who the hell put Eminem on this list? Eminem is the ' king of rap.
Eminem is okay, 50 Cent was a soldier, Led Zepplin was alright, Metallica is awesome, and The Jonaas Brother suck. Not as bad as Justin Bieber or Miley 'Cryus' but just bad enough my ears bleed.
Jonas Brothers aren't overrated because nobody likes them - NickelstickmanV 28 Comments
Are you kidding me?!? How can they be overrated if they've got Bono - hyrbid249
The Edge doesn't play guitar as much as he plays pedals.
Only guitarist famous for not really doing much, hopeless
No. The Beatles worked hard to get where they are now. RIP Lennon and Harrison. - IronSabbathPriest
No way! I bet every negative comment on here came from someone who has never listened to any of their albums. I'm just saying, don't judge unless u actually know who they are and the songs they made. They were great songwriters working together to make hit after hit and they shouldn't be considered overrated at all.
I understand that The Beatles were ground breaking musicians in their time, but for them to still be considered one of the best bands of all time seems a bit ridiculous. In my opinion, they weren't even overly talented...
To all Beatle Haters: history voted- and YOU lost.V 24 Comments
So overrated. They don't really have good talent but of course they had to win the X Factor because all the girls had to vote him from their boyish looks. Even worse, they went to North America which then got really annoying. How is One Direction even 96 on this list? They should be in the top 10!
This has no talent at all, they can't write their own songs, they do autotune, they use loop every choruses, famous because of the looks, over played at the radio which makes their garbage stuck in peoples' heads and the Idiot named Niall thinks he can play the guitar if he can just strum a 3-chord song which is very easy for 6 year old kid, he bought a Gibson Les Paul I bet that guitar was crying for a real guitarist and they make ugly synth beats.
One Direction has the most insensitive, closed minded fanbase. Along with that their songs are simplistic, redundant, and frankly not worth anyone's time. Girls follow this "band" based on their appearance and the fact that other people do it. Honestly, move on.
Very overrated. They have a few good songs but get way too much praise compared to other artists who are way more talented.V 19 Comments
My Chemical Romance is, like, amazing. They have pure talent. They play their own instruments, and don't have just one drum beat or guitar line. Especially their bassist, who has some of the best bass lines I have ever heard. And to ShallowCal, the Beatles suck. They have no talent at all. I would actually put the Beatles for number one as the most overrated artist. The Beatles have no talent. The Beatles are overrated. The Beatles are not artistic. The Beatles cannot spell correctly. The Beatles suck. Metallica is amazing. My Chemical Romance's songs come deep down from the heart. Their instrumentals are amazing. And if you don't believe me, search My Chemical Romance-Teenagers on YouTube and listen for the the bass line. I guarantee that it is amazing. If you don't think so, I suggest you go see an ear doctor coase you're probably going deaf or something.
Nice opinion on My Chemical Romance, but The Beatles don't suck. They are superior! - TristGamer
This band is not artistic, they suck. How can you people say that zeppelin, hendrix, and avenged are overrated they're great? The beatles are great, but I can see where you're coming from since everyone always says they're the best. As for Metallica, Lars Ulrich needed pro tools to keep him on time. - shallowcal
Eh... when it comes to the emo wannabe quartet (Green Day, Panic, Fall out Boy, and My Chemical Romance), I'd say these guys are the most underrated. They've only had one huge, the fanbase isn't anywhere as powerful, and they have quality to back it up. - ProPanda
@toptenqueen ehh... they were one of the bands that stood out in the early 2000's "emo" scene but I still find them to be mediocreV 3 Comments
Has everybody getting tired of her new songs and performance? Well, so do I because she bores the hell outta me. Another thing is that she made the people of Colorado mad at her for bringing fake guns, which means that they had a fear of gunfiring just like the movie theater while watching Dark Knight Rises!
She might have an irritating media persona, but her music is certainly not overrated. Allright her last couple of albums haven't been that good. But there are hardly any better dance records than Ray of Light and Confessions on a Dancefloor.
Desperate to relive glory days...
Might I ask who overrates Bieber if he is hated by 98% of the world's population. - WonkeyDude98
This should be first followed by 1D.
I love justin - AutumnRobbins

Beyonce is very much overrated. She a copycat and a thief. There isn't an original bone in her body. She is very shady and her fans are mean. She doesn't even try to ask them to chill out. Her song "formation" had nothing to do with black power, it's more like Beyonce power because the song is all about herself and "defending herself" cause of the haters. It even pushes sterotypes. She claims she's a lady but ladies don't walk around half naked shaking their junk in your face and telling the world what she does behind closed doors. Also she claims to be for the black community but when bad things were happening to the black community she was silent. She's even at one point wore a coon/Sambo jacket (a racist depicton of a black person). If you don't believe me look it up. This woman is a walking contridiction who ONLY does something to further her only agenda which is to be rich and famous. Sadly no one cares or notices cause she's pretty, can kinda sings and dance. I wish the world ...more
Beyonce might be pretty but she hasn't done anything in the past couple of years with her music other than sell her sex appeal
Too overrated for a person who shows more skin than real music
She should definitely be number one. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFanV 4 Comments
Mediocre at best. Annoying fan base that thinks they are the best artists alive. Sing about edgy stuff
Mediocre at best
Terrible and overrated to the max. Especially by those emos. Ugghh.
Oh, you're saying that Queen is overrated because you only know We are the Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, and two others. I tell you, try to listen the entire A Night at the Opera, Queen, or Queen II album. Then, if you still saying they're not the best band ever, come back and vote again.
Definitely overrated. They are only known because of three songs: Bohemian Rhapsody, We will rock you and we are the champions. Most of these so called queen fans have never heard of other songs made by queen. that's because they suck.
Queen is known as one of the best bands ever just because of three songs. They should definitely be higher. Maybe even number one on this list.
Okay, that does it. What gives you the right to judge Queen and the fans in general. You don't know anything about them, so why bother in the first place? Under Pressure, Don't Stop Me Now, Fat Bottomed Girls, Another One Bites the Dust, Somebody to Love, The Show Must Go On, exedra, are all amazing songs. You don't even listen to Queen, so how the hell do you know what they all sound like? And sure there are some Queen fans that have listened to only those three, but they are still fans. And the rest have. Most Queen fans actually listen to the other songs, those three songs are just the most famous. And about only those three songs being they're only famous one, wrong. "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" is played in many movies and television shows. You probably have heard it but don't recognize it by it's name. Also, Another One Bites the Dust was going to be used in Rocky III, The Show Must Go On is Nostalgia Critic's theme, Don't Stop Me Now was used in Shaun of the Dead, exedra ...more - MontyPython
Wait. You people. Put. Queen. On. This. List.I. really. Am. Mad. Now.
Queen is the best ever they shouldn't be on this list you bunch of crazies you are voting for them because they are popular not overrated. Wow, that was a mouthful.
By the way,...
I LOVE FREDDIE MERCURY!
Overrated as hell! They suck! At least for this generation!V 4 Comments
If you see most of the music list on top tens they are number 1 - extremely overrated. They had like 3 good songs in 30 years.
Hell yeah they are overrated. It is clear the same person keeps voting for Heart and Ann Wilson mutiple times and want to pretend that they are number one. Have you seen most music critic lists they are never on them. Just check out their 80's and 90's work for why.
Hate this. Barracuda this, Barracuda that, Barracuda c@&*! - MetalGod
Too overrated and Dreamboat Annie is so not #1 on the Greatest albums list - idolangelx13
It's one thing to be a musician, but be a little creative. And creative is one thing she's NOT. It seems like all she ever sings about are break ups and constantly comparing herself to popular people, and nothing else, which gets kinda boring after a while. She is NOT creative AT ALL when it comes to her music.
Deals with things in the most obnoxious and childish way
She has one of the worst fandoms with an annoying hypocritical Fanbase. All her songs sound the same and are always on the radio. I don't understand how everyone still loves her.
SHE SUCKS,V 7 Comments
I think when all music is considered, AC/DC is pretty good. BUT! Whenever people mention rock from the 70s and 80s, AC/DC is SO loved. When it comes to back in those days, I think many other guitarists are better. There are also way better drummers and better lyrics. One of the things I do like are the bagpipes, and I like them a lot. But just because I like them, doesn't mean I won't admit they're overrated.
Actually, they're overrated. I think they wrote only 2-3 good songs, they are a great band to know rock, but after that there are many others musicians better than them, with greater riffs and melodic lines (not only the "aa" of Thunderstruck).
singer is not that good guitar player is average nothing really special. -
SHUT UP!V 2 Comments
I don't like anything they do. It sounds so generic. Who ever thinks these people are the greatest has no musical taste. Besides, Jared Leto is an Actor, not a Musician. - d3rrick95
Don't like them because they have no talent and they are controlling people somehow with an unknown device, which is why some people are stupid enough to like them. - lukestheman4
They're almost amusing, the music I mean. Leto should have just stuck to being a semi good actor.
More like 30 seconds of fameV 2 Comments
Eh, some of her hits are overrated, but she's lowered down on music hits. Her album Cheek to Cheek didn't have any singles, and Till It Happens to You wasn't even a hit either. - Swellow
One of the most overrated, mediocre bands I've ever had the displeasure of hearing. The only one who even had anything even remotely resembling talent was their drummer, yet even so, he was quite mediocre himself. - ybothermatt
Annoying metalcore generic sound, extremely overrated guitarist, bassist, drummer and singer as well. They are like the pop of metal, annoying as hell.
They suck, they should all die and they have no talentV 1 Comment
