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

48 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

More overhated than overrated - wrests

She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

Miley is SO overrated. She just complains about love, makes a no-sense song, and gets famous. At least she WAS a great artist. That was BEFORE she transformed into some singer who wears almost nothing and rants about exes. So original in this generation. (Sarcasm)

Definitely overrated by school girls. What happened to her? She used to be so young and clean then all of a sudden she transformed into this hideous twerking monster.

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

More like 30 seconds of fame

They're almost amusing, the music I mean. Leto should have just stuck to being a semi good actor.

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

Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). 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!

Over-rated, over-praised, and WAY over-played. SO sick and tired of them.
