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

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.

64 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

67 ABBA ABBA ABBA were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

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!

68 The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.

I can't stand their music. I understand they sang about heroin and influenced a bunch of punk bands, but their music I find extremely grating and lou reed can't sing his way out of a douchebag.

How to become a rock legend: Write 45-second songs and repeat them for three to seventeen minutes while Lou Reed speaks the lyrics out of key.

69 Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer and songwriter from Mission, British Columbia, and later based in Vancouver.

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.
