Most Overrated Music Artists
The Contenders: Page 2
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
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.
A disgrace to metal.
They suck, they should all die and they have no talent
Overrated and worst. - MikaBeeWall
Sounds the same in every song, he's the overrated male rapper ever,
Truely horrendous but I wanted to vote for the most overrated guitarist of all time- ed Sheehan I haven't played guitar in nearly 4 years and I can play all his songs easily
100% overrated but still awesome - spodermanfan1000
She should at least be in the top 15.
How is this so low?
He's good but not the best!
Michael jackson is a horrible artist he can't sing and he was a pedophile
Thinks he is all that

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!
She can't even sing! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
We don't think she can sing, we NOW she can sing, possesses a five octave range, and has an emotional, theatrical, and very powerful voice with amazing lyrics written by herself.
Everyone thinks she can sing
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.
The most overrated chick of all time - DaWyteNight
Hate this slut with a burning passion - RnBLover
He's such a bubble gum soft rapper and is not even worth listening to.
Deserves to be way higher in the list this has ghostwriters isn't even as tough as portrayed Drake Never started from the bottom... degrassi anyone? Plus Frake worships the devil and the fact people think he's a real rapper is a joke and this bitch is the biggest artist out there is pretty sad. - DattKiddGeorge
Most overrated rapper of all time. No debating. Nas is not really overrated. 2Pac is a legend and is not overrated. Biggie is a little overrated. Jay-Z is overrated now but he used to be a good rapper. Eminem is extremely overrated but he's done his work to be talked about as one of the best, even if I don't enjoy his music. But this guy, Mr. Kendrick Lamar, is about as overrated as it gets. It's one thing to have talent, and lyrics, but if you can't put together a good song with all of that, then I just don't know what is wrong with you. TPAB sounded like a bunch of noises, not music. It had three or so good songs. If he could put those lyrics over better production, maybe he wouldn't be as bad, but his voice is still a problem. His voice sounds like a 12 year old who just got kicked in the vag. He needs to stop that cartoonish crap, especially if he's trying to be lyrical and he wants us to take him seriously. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
If I hear the song Sugar on the Radio one more time, I will kill myself
Maroon5 is not a big deal at all
Might I ask who overrates Bieber if he is hated by 98% of the world's population. - WonkeyDude98
Exactly. How can someone be overrated if a huge majority of the Internet hates them? - allamassal
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. - Fullwalking2V 11 Comments
