The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition ...read more.

I very like this band. But rock is not just Led Zeppelin!

No doubts! Led Zeppelin is the most overrated artist in my opinion.

It's been proven that they stole most of their music - the good ones came from old blues

The only people that like them were born in the 60's the only reason the listen is to feel young again - justicerieth

42 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.

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.

They suck but Nirvana is no where near as bad as Pixies

Worst rock band ever

Yeah, for sure Pixies, Nirvana, and radiohead suck. As if some people actually think that music is about art!

55 The Weeknd The Weeknd Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

In my opinion, his music might not sound like anyone else' on the radio, but most of his songs just sound like a different version of "The Hills" to me. I don't discredit this guy and whatever he's done, I just think he should do more in terms of creativity and originality.

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
