81 Rod Stewart Rod Stewart Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

I will give him Maggie May and Reason to Believe are great songs but the rest of stuff is white trash.

awful voice - why is he so popular? - idolangelx13

82 Eric Clapton Eric Clapton Eric Patrick Clapton is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

Inarguably one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time. Cream is absolutely amazing. So, why is he making weepy ballads? He should stick to doing what he's best at: rocking. - TheAI

Even Though He Was A Great Guitarist, His Style Is Oh...
Too Repetitive...

What the hell!? He is amazing! He has one of the most extensive and complete musical careers of all time, playing from Blues to Rock Pop!
Overrated? Not at all
Good? A lot

83 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman
84 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen

Don't understand how he can write or perform with his head buried in his ass

The guy just needs to quit already!

He should be number one on this list. He has zero song writing ability. His song writing are all cliches! He is an awful singer. This is clearly exposed when he gets on stage to do tributes. He's always so overmatched by the other legens on state. His voice is just awful

Someone needs to go and review their lives because Nas should not be on this list.

86 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles ...read more.

Undeniably talented, but some of her songs sound similar.

To me her voice sounds very damaged, like she's smoked a lot of cigarettes. Also, her lyrics are boring and depressing: it's just her wailing about one breakup after another.

Way too predictable, you can guess where those harmonies are going

She's... Kind of a good singer. But her songs are... Oh my God, they are all the same. And she's not that good as people see her
Overrated? Yes. A lot
Bad? Not really. Just repetitive

Sadly, all that's left is just a pretty face.

90 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine ...read more.

He's a much better guitarist than a singer. Seriously.

Anti gay talentless republican.

He was known with his hit singles like Summer, This Is What You Came For and How Deep Is Love . He also was cheated on by Taylor Swift in their relationship for Tom Hiddleston ...read more.

It's at least Summer that sounds boring and like plain modern pop music. Like Drake, he is nice to talk to.

97 Delta Goodrem Delta Goodrem Delta Lea Goodrem is an Australian singer-songwriter and actress. Born and raised in Sydney, New South Wales, she enrolled in dancing, acting, singing and piano classes at a young age.

'Innocent Eyes' nice Delta gone 'plastic' Paris Hilton! - NoMcFlopStar

98 Miranda Lambert Miranda Lambert Miranda Leigh Lambert is an American country music singer and songwriter. She is best known as a solo artist, and is a member of the Pistol Annies.

Miranda's an animal abusing, untalented redneck moron. She is outragingly overrated! Plus she is married to the infamously stupid co animal abusing untalented redneck moron Blake Shelton.

99 Grace Askew
100 Lorde Lorde Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor, better known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer-songwriter.

Lorde is close to being the voice of a generation, on a universal level which is rare, her lyrics are insightful and her voice, though monotonous at times, shows are sort of boredom with twenty-first century life; she's just what music needs right now and shouldn't even be on this list

I can't believe her song's are blowing up the pop Chart's at music award's. She has no flow or passion when it comes to singing.

Average singer. Poor composer. Overrated as hell

Yea overrated for sure, but a lot better than most of the garbage pop music coming out
