Most Overrated Music Artists

The Contenders: Page 3

41 X Japan X Japan X Japan is a Japanese heavy metal band from Chiba, formed in 1982 by drummer Yoshiki and lead vocalist Toshi.

As X (82-93) they were an epic bunch of rockstars and way under-rated - their style and sound was unique, something that is hard to find in Japan where everything is so uniform and garbage pop music rules. As soon as they became X Japan, they changed their style and sound and became nothing more than an over-rated mediocre Japanese pop rock band. I think they received way too much attention then and get way too much credit now for all basically. Also HIDE is probably one of the most over-rated guitarists ever.

Of course they are not the best, they're good but not the best in Japan and in the world, very overrated because of their Art Of Life - ronluna

It's like no. 1 on almost every single list, come on they can't be that good! - HenP

In my opinon X Japan should be under the top 5, because they were just "new and hip" so everybody loved them. If Hide hadn�'t killed himself, this band would be a lot less popular now

50 Destiny's Child Destiny's Child Destiny's Child was an American girl group whose final and best-known line-up comprised Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams.

I never liked their music. Never. Their songs are so annoying and childish when they come on. They're not even catchy! They're just the fifth harmony of the past. No wonder fifth harmony look up to them so much. And this is the group that pushed beyonce in everyone's face and they made sure that beyonce would be the biggest thing out. She's lucky she had her dad doing everything for her in making sure she would blow up, because there are others that don't have anybody helping them and doing everything for them and they don't get as popular or stay around. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

Disturbed needs to be in the top 10 of this list.
They're the definition of overrated.
They're sellouts, not that they were ever good.
Everyone thinks they're good when they're actually crap.
The vocalist has no range, and the musicians (especially the guitarist, and drummer) have no creativity and those are the reasons why a lot of their songs sound a like.
Little 10 - 13 year old kids think they're "heavy", no they're not. They're not even metal, nu-metal is not metal.
Disturbed just sucks, and they need to go away! - Chris113

60 The Gazette The Gazette The Gazette, originally known as Gazette, is a Japanese visual kei rock band from Kanagawa formed in early 2002. The band is currently signed to Sony Music Records.

I can't believe they achieved mainstream success with such plain vocals. The bass alone cannot create the band
