Most Overrated Music Artists
The Contenders: Page 4
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.
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

I can't believe they achieved mainstream success with such plain vocals. The bass alone cannot create the band
Voted over classics like the Pixies and the Grateful Dead on my list. Why? - InsertNameHere
They're a bit overrated and deserve to be at a higher spot on this list..

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!
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.
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...
