Most Overrated Music Artists

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Nirvana Nirvana Nirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. ...read more.

Their music is really dry and tasteless not much feeling to it. I find it depressing when I listen to their music, in my opinion they are seriously overrated as a band and as musicians. Kurt Cobain is not that great of a guitarist (junkie, tried to commit suicide 5 times by intencional overdose, finally doing it by a shotgun to the head and many other things that caused me a terrible impression), Krist Novoselic is an average bassist (but has a very boring style, doing everything that the guitar does), and then there's Dave Grohl. Out of those three Dave is the only one that has my respect he is an amazing drummer. Nirvana and the rest of the grunge movement killed thrash metal just when it had become popular and had taken down the travesti glam metal movement (this is not intended in an offensive way, I am only supporting my opinion)

If all the people in the world had a good taste in music this wouldn't have been here in this list not even at 47.

Why so low? - zxm

Nirvana is the best. Kurt Cobain is great with the grungy vocals, Dave grohl and krist novoselic are great with drums and bass too.
Although half of Nirvana's fans are posers buying Nirvana t-shirt and hitting the streets but when you ask them they say "no I just like the shirt" exc...
Nirvana is not overrated as you think it is. Don't believe in those posers.

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

Katy Perry can't sing and her songs are boring and generic. At least Rihanna makes some catchy songs that get stuck in your head in a good way. Katy's songs just annoy the heck out of you or just leave you with no impression at all because of how boring they are. If it weren't for her enormous breasts, nobody would care about her. Don't no straight guy like katy perry for her voice/music! Right from the start with that piece of crap I Kissed a Skank, I knew this girl was a joke and a waste of space. She even sold out for her fame. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

Katy should not be in this list!

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.

This gay guy sucks. I've never liked any of his songs

A person that 100,000,000,000,000,000,000+ people hate is not overrated. - Fullwalking2

Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury ...read more.

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!

I don't HATE them, but they are DEFINITELY overrated - growlbunny

He's good but not the best!

Thinks he is all that

Ridiculous lyrics, What about the elephants? The horrible singing, endless choreographed dancing, grabbing his crotch, trying to look tough, constatly going on about a better world and spending all his vast fortune on pleasuring himself. The list goes on, for the song and video for Thriller alone should make him number one. I don't need dance moves to go with my music, that's just showbizz, I want rock n roll.

Who ever wrote that is a bitch

Just because she died in that way doesn't mean we need to worship her and act like everything she did was perfect. She's not Jesus after all. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

She was so underrated if anything. Take her off this. Her voice and style were unique.
