Most Overrated Music Artists
The Contenders: Page 4
I can't believe they achieved mainstream success with such plain vocals. The bass alone cannot create the band
The first time I saw a band photo of Slipknot I thought they were some Gwar style comedy metal band who were making fun of wannabe-tough guy nu-metal. With the masks and the 9 bands members I thought their was no way this band was serious, it had to be a joke.
But no, they were actually a real band.
In my opinion, Slipknot is not a good band. But somehow, everybody is talking about them. I don't know why- They are very over-rated.
Despite fantastic tracks such as Dancing Queen, Knowing Me Knowing You, The Winner Takes it All and much more, I don't think the famous four of Sweden should be able to say that they've sold over 300 million copies of material. And I don't think that they're a bad group by any stretch of the imagination, it's just they're a group who shouldn't be on a list of best-selling music acts in history (alongside The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Queen, Madonna). And once again, it's not because they're music is bad, the word "overrated" just implies something is more noteworthy then it probably should be, and ABBA are no exception. But! ABBA are one of the best acts ever in music, and will probably survive for generations and generations to come. So ABBA, although you may not have deserved all of the success of your received, Thank you for the Music!
If I hear the song Sugar on the Radio one more time, I will kill myselfV 1 Comment
Not a BAD band by any stretch of the imagination, but really overrated. Their fan base is terrible. On this site they vote for Metallica in everything, even things like "best riff". Really other riffs are better, but they just vote for Metallica.
Very overrated band. - LedSabbath
I am a Metallica FAN, no jokes! When it comes to this list, hell yeah Metallica was a bit overrated. They are all over the other top ten lists mostly because of us, Metallica fans. Yeah, they are really great band with great line up too but most voted them because of their popularity, not to mention lack of knowledge about another bands or field of music.
Metallica is my number 1 favorite band but that doesn't mean they have to be top of the line in every single list. Most Metfan clearly doesn't understand that. Enough said.
By the way, Bieber, Miley Cyrus, 50 Crap should be placed higher, and Eminem is talented, not overrated. - Pyansickness
Once upon a time, they were the greatest metal band in the world. Unfortunately, such is no longer the case. It's a shame how they have fallen and how we still cling so desperately to the remains of a once-great metal monster.
Good Band. Just way too much overrated. Fan base thinks Metallica are gods. They need to wake up.V 11 Comments
72? Queen at 16? I cannot go to any music lists without seeing these annoying Eminem fans. I rate this sexist and homophobic excuse for a rapper 0/10. - 445956
To me, they are the best rap band I heard in a while, but yes they are overrated - shawnmccaul22
Best doesn't deserve to be here
The God of Rap is here whyV 1 Comment
If you like talent you will hate this band
They were once good, but then they discovered the joys of auto tune and sold out
The fact that it is the most known Japanese band in America doesn't mean they're the best.
Sounding and screaming like an animal does not make you popular or talented dude. The vocals are okay but the screams are horrible. Here's Dir en grey in a nutshell...
So kut so hi kut... Something in Japanese HUWE! I change the song when it comes to this part. The lead singer looks like about 55 even when he is 37 and sure is an ugly dude. Japan has better bands such as The Gazette, X Japan and Coldrain (Rather emo).
Many like this band but this band annoys me a lot - ronluna
I just don't see how special she is - Moorefamval
Her albums sound EXTREMELY alike it's not even funny. She has a decent voice.
People just like her because she can sing like Amy wine house she is know better than any other soul artist like Duffy or pamola faith I hope she dose not release any more musicV 2 Comments
She's way too overrated. She is one of the richest and most famous young singers and they only thing she has done in her career was just a catchy song ("Call Me Maybe") and then a bunch of pop garbage songs that also sound the same.
I'm just so surprised to see people like The Beatles, Elvis, Carrie Underwood, Britney and Madonna in this list and nobody admits that those are true artists making true music and they have so many great songs when that freak Carly Rae Jepsen had only one "cute" song.
She is just a feminine version of Justin Burberry with a little less of innovation.
If anything, they're underrated. I'm talking to their 70's albums of course...
