Most Overrated Rock Bandscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 2
I don't understand how any body likes this band. These guys are horrible
Most people who have an ungodly hate for this band are generally sheep. Nickelback is not amazing, and their sound is generic usually, but kroeger has a weird sounding voice, but he actually has decent singing talent. Listen to godsmack. THAT is the definition of trying too hard to sing grungily. Their old songs were actually pretty good, but as soon as they blew up they just started to copy themselves. How you remind me isn't actually too bad as well
The guitarist is unskilled (actually all the "musicians" are), their discography have songs that are indistinguishable from one another, their lead singer sounds constipated when singing, they are a derivative of Creed which in turn are a derivative of Pearl Jam whilst at the same time sounding like bro-country (shudders), the lead singer looks like a paedophile, they performed so terribly at a concert that people throw rocks at them, people actually petition for them to NOT perform, their songs lack class (e.G. Figured You Out, Something In Your Mouth), they only care about money when it comes to making music (I mean, as the almighty end all of all things), diversifying in music means bringing Flo Rida to guest in one of your songs, the lead singer is a douchebag as a person.
I just can't think of anything of merit about this band. If one is forced to listen to their music on the radio while at work, what will you expect to be the reaction?
Nickelback is coming out with a new 3 CD box set - it's gonna be called Nickelback's Greatest Hit...V 14 Comments
What in is this bull? THEY'RE NOT EVEN A ROCK BAND IN ANY WAY. This site is full of crap.
This is not a rock band but they are overrated though and they suck - christangrant
They're not overrated, or rock. - ProPanda
They arnt rock music why is this on here - theone90990
They're not overrated. A lot of people, like me, think they suck - ChatonNoir
I love X-Japan. I don't think they are overrated. The only person that seems to hate X Japan in every single top tens list is this LedZepp81 retard. I mean, most people here don't even know them (except for this stupid douche bag), so how are they overrated? Their music is inspiring and amazing. Just listen to Art of Life (worth 30 minutes of your life). Just so you know, I actually think Led Zeppelin is kinda overrated, and they are higher on the list than X anyways. However, I do think fans exaggerate sometimes, not by thinking X Japan is better than what they really are (even if they're not the greatest band that ever stepped on Earth), but by putting down every single Japanese band that isn't X. I'm a huge J-rock/metal fan and it irks me seeing X fans calling other bands trash because they're not X. X Japan isn't even my FAVORITE band... But definitely great.
I don't even know who they are but they're on like every list in the top 10 so I suspect foul play -_- - FresnoMMA
Then why don't you try listen to their music first? They're amazing - jadesweetbox
From what I can tell people on this site seem to love them. But I can't figure out why there borderline-horrible. I would say them and Avenged Sevenfold are the two most overrated bands.
Nirvana is also very overrated. - Chris-1
What are you guys talking about! If anything, this band is under rated.
Overrated? You may not like it but they finally get the respect they deserve. And whereas some later songs may be considered overrated by picky fans, most people will not be familiar with their earlier even more brilliant tracks. A powerful rock trio with interesting and versatile writing, guitar and bass lines and effects, great vocals and not to forget some of the best live performances you will ever experience. Love it or hate it, but Muse is not overrated. Even if they sometimes make it to the charts.
Tasteless music. Tasteless band. Which blended therefore a lot of styles trying to sound originally. But Matt Bellamy did not manage to make any good songs (except Knights of Cydonia which sounds questionably same to Cecilia Ann by Pixies). So, what I wanted to say. People that like mediocre rock music will find it nice. I can not give this band more than 7 out of 10.
Don't know why muse are on this list, they are a great, talented band
It may not be overrated, but their fandom is certainly one of the most annoying fandoms out there.V 2 Comments
Bands like this deserve to be on this list. Not bands like Blink 182, A7X, Slipknot, LP, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Green Day, System of a Down or Nirvana. They are proper bands that make proper music - Danielsun182
Really, this low? Number 43!?! Ok, It is FINE if you like this, but saying it is better than Owl City? The Beatles? CRUSH 40, aka, the team who does all of Sonic's vocal songs? No. That may be your opinion, but that opinion is SHUNNED from where I come from, and so must this band be!
A bunch of teenage boys trying to play some music! Seriously I don't understand why some people (especially teenage girls) go gaga over them. If you think One Direction is a good band, my advice to you:Please start listening to some music preferrably Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Metallica or heck if you don't like rock some decent artists like Eminem.
Not a Rock band but yes they are overrated - christangrantV 13 Comments
Evanescence is basically just Amy Lee, she was the only member to be on 2 album covers and most people seem to only like Evanescence because of Amy's oh so amazing voice. I've seen so many people talk about how they love because Amy Lees vocals are so beautiful and she saved their life! Sorry but a band is more than just vocals and honestly she's a good singer but not as great as everyone seems to claim. Their lyrics and music is just pretty generic, there are better symphonic rock bands.
If there is something wrong with that band is that Amy Lee is the only member that gets credits. Evanescence is my favorite band, but I think the other members need more credits. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
Evanescence is the best band ever
Their debut album is the GENESIS of all metal. Legendary bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, and 'tallica all owe everything to these guys and Deep Purple. Considering they created a whole genre of music and other bands that always strike top 10 on every list (Sabbath isn't one of them) didn't, it's safe to say that they're UNDERRATED if anything.
HAHA. Putting Sabbath on this list is a joke. They deserve all the credit and more.
They are called the founders of metal when they only made Doom Metal - christangrant
YES this band is so overrated plus they also ruined Highway to Hell so they deserve the hate they get - christangrant
Marilyn Manson is not overrated - Disturbedpotato
If "hardcore" wannabes have a god, that must be Marilyn Manson.
Aerosmith doesn't get enough credit. They have many great songs and they are one of the best in the world, yet they don't get as much credit and recognition as other bands such as Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Queen; etc. They are not overrated, they're underrated. And they rock!
You either love Aerosmith or you can't stand them. I am the latter. The only song worth I like is "Janie's Got a Gun", just because it's different as has a good message. Oh, yea, "Dream On" is trash.V 2 Comments
Yeah, OK so they're women. Big deal. Their music is weak. So there.
Heart is the worst band ever and what's queen doing in this list - rodoglezV 3 Comments
They were a solid rock band but baby-boomers believe them to be almost as groundbreaking and historically important as Elvis. I'm actually a fan of a few of their songs but they made some stinkers too. The fact there is a successful magazine called "The Rolling Stones" is enough proof that this band is way overrated and not only that but able to use their magazine to release top 100 songs of all time that list their own songs way too favorably near the top every time.
The most overrated band ever. There are no questions. Seriously Mick Jagger is a great performer don't get me wrong, but that is the only reason that these guys are considered influential. His voice is nothing special, Keith Richards is a so-so guitarist and Brian Jones there only stand out musician was rejected and killed himself. - Ledjam17
Good writers & good in the studio - seen 'em live and they're brutal - glorified garage band. They're like Dylan - also a great writer - should have had someone else record his tunes. But of course, all music is subjective - one man's garbage is another man's gold.
They did great albums through the 60 and 70s then they just became a big joke, - ChatonNoirV 5 Comments
If you say they're overrated, "might as well jump." - naFrovivuS
Eddie influenced vai, no eddie no vai
Ok, who put Van Halen on this list? Eddie practically invented shredding!
Slayer isn't overrated - christangrant
Fans will say they're the best band ever, and say "LISTEN TO STRESSED OUT OR HEATHENS OR RIDE," and I say, "Is that all? " Seriously, not even that good at writing or performing. Most overrated band ever? Check. - naFrovivuS
Were they not on this list? - christangrant
