62 John Mayer John Mayer

I think John Mayer is an extremely talented artist who is constantly misjudged because of the prejudices people have about him. He has an amazing voice, writes good lyrics and plays the guitar beautifully. If you listen to his songs like 'Gravity' and 'Slow dancing in a burning room', you'll understand what I'm talking about. If you want to discover amazing music, I urge you to listen to his songs. Do not let your prejudice get in the way. - Malavikasunilk

Lots of my friends suggested his music, which set the expectation high to me. So I went to Spotify and listened to his songs from the most popular list. First song, so-so; second song, no-no; third down to the tenth, still nothing. Honestly, I've been trying real hard to like his music, but he failed me. Still, it's a matter of taste

Just repeat the same lyrics over and over for the entirr length of a song, and you have John Mayer. My 5 year old could come up with better lyrics than "say what you need to say. " Ok John, we get it. Please just say what you need to say already and finish the song.

Every song just kinda sound the same. Very meh...

64 Akon Akon Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is an American-Senegalese singer, rapper, songwriter, businessman, record producer and actor.

really, really despise this guy and all he stands for. todays pop. him and the likes, neyo, flo rida, jay z or whatever they are called, they normally just crop up in the middle of a half decent song that they 'feature' in, and ruin it. - daftdavy

I dislike how most of the music today is about autotune this and autotune that. I honestly don't see why disco beats and autotune creates such a hype in the world.. Like david guetta and various Korean pop groups.

Akon is all right and all, but come on...he sings like he's drunk and suckin' helium...all of his beats are the same, I cant tell the difference between song other than the words and his songs are played TOO MUCH!

Definitely shouldn't be on this list. - DaWyteNight

69 Joey Jordison Joey Jordison Joey Jordison, is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer best known for his work as the former drummer and co-songwriter for the heavy metal band Slipknot as well as guitarist in the Horror-punk band Murderdolls.

Not really that talented a drummer to be honest, and his double bass isn't even that impressive. His signature snare drum was also a disappointment.

70 Elvis Elvis Elvis Presley was a American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

All this contra-comments are stupid. He was the end of Rock and Roll? In 1954 at SUN Records he mixed black Rhythm and Blues with white Country. A new style was invented ( Rockabilly ). He stole his songs and style? He had a sex-appeal and charisma never seen before. Just listen to the Original songs and then listen to the versions of Elvis SUN records. They are completely different. It's a completely new sound. About Chuck Berry. His first record " Maybelline " from 1955 was an adaption of an old white country / Folk song " Ida Red " and his guitar playing style was copied after T-Bone Walker. Isn't that stealing also? Elvis shouldn't be on a overrated list. The ones who put him here have obviously no clue about the history of music and no knowledge about popular culture.

What stupid idiot put this here!

Not only is that picture stupid Elvis is to he's cheesy and if you're going to say he wasn't in the 50's well disco wasn't through the 70's and 80's

Elves is a phoney who stole his whole style and some of his songs from real rock and roll artists. The King of Rock is Chuck Berry. Go Johnny go go go!

71 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

It is the biggest con in the entertainment industry. Name is the most popular female colour, so the colour is everywhere and she gets helped out every time the colour shows up. She doesn't have a good voice either. Everyone of her songs gets 'helped' by the media because they enjoy conning people into liking something that is really crap. That 'so what' song sounds like a little baby copying 'black night' by deep purple and y'all eat it up like it's original and great because you are continually told to like it.

Speaking of "So What" why does she think she's a rockstar? That song sounds like it's from a Disney film. She tried to be r&b and now she's trying to be rock. She sucks.

76 Bon Jovi Bon Jovi Bon Jovi is a hard rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s.

The band's ...read more.

Just screw these guys. The only reason they get so much attention is because they're old. "Livin' On a Prayer", "It's My Life", and "Always" are all terrible songs.

77 Gackt Gackt

actually very overrated in every list there is gackt. l'arc, d'erlanger and b'z are better than him - ronluna

Look at the lists here. He is at the top on many. This just can't be right. Very overrated

It must be Gackt according to the top ten lists here.

78 Slash Slash Saul Hudson, known professionally as Slash, is a British-American musician and songwriter. He is best known as the lead guitarist of the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses, with whom he achieved worldwide success in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

He's a great guitarist, and could pull off amazing solos, but when I see him Nr. 3 on a list of the best guitarists ever, above Santana and Clapton, it just makes me cringe.

All of you haters out there, go listen to the work he has done with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, Velvet Revolver, AND Slash's Snakepit.

He's honestly not that great a guitarist. Great artist but not guitarist

Slash is cool. He knows his Rock History. Has worked with Iggy, Aerosmith etc. and he partied so hard he has a Pacemaker in his chest.

79 Lars Ulrich Lars Ulrich Lars Ulrich is a Danish drummer and one of the founding members of the American thrash metal band Metallica.

Lar Ulrich is not only a bad a drummer, he is also a jerk. Metallica should have kicked this clown out, not Dave mustaine

Easily the worst drummer in metal.

Obnoxious Fool. Kiss your Hair Bye-Bye, You Poser.

Overrated just like the rest of Metallica.

80 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

Why the hell Green Day is there? Avril Lavigne is so overrated. Also she's a poser and she sings, she sounds like a dying goat. I don't know why do people like her life she sings pop, not punk.

Some lyrical ability but marrying kroeger and singing about stuff she did 15 years ago means she needs a new musical direction.

She and Kelly Clarkson are underrated not overrated

She is a retard with only one or two good songs.
