Might not be overrated because many people know they suck
So good... the highlight of the music who shaped me into who I am today.
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!
The Rolling Stones are on the list too so obviously people just don't want to hear about the Stones or VH anymore. VH 1978-2012. VH r the real deal. Check out the classics just from the David Lee Roth era...the entire debut album, VH II, Fair Warning, 1984, Women and Children First. All reasons why people wanted to become musicians and start bands to kick ass too. Don't forget A Different Kind of Truth from 2012. We aren't talking' bout some wanna bee clones, these r the guys that kick started the guitar revolution and popularized shredding. enough said about that - frankmartinV 1 Comment
Slayer isn't overrated - christangrant
They might be a little ovverated - imabigpotato
Absolutely worthless, generic, unoriginal band that has never done anything we haven't heard before done better by other bands. Their popularity really baffles me.
These guys suck, I don't know why so many people like them...
Take it Easy, Desperado, Tequila Sunrise, I Can't Tell You Why, Love Will Keep Us Alive, Life in the Fast Lane, New Kid in Town, The Last Resort, Already Gone, One of These Nights, Lyin'.Eyes, Take it to the Limit, Heartache Tonight, The Long Run, Sad Cafe, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Witchy Woman, How Long, Get Over It, Learn to Be Still Best of My Love, Seven Bridges Road, Outlaw Man...
VERY underrated! If you voted for the eagles, name a song besides Hotel California
Popularity = overrated. the bands most talked about get the axe seems to be the case. If a band exists for a couple decades with moderate success people let them slide. If they explode with a huge album then they become the talk of the town and then starts the criticism. - frankmartinV 1 Comment
What are you guys talking about! If anything, this band is under rated.
What's overrated generally is a when a band is know for having one really hugely successful album out of nowhere and then a series of lesser successful releases. Not the case with Def Leppard. They started the string with a an ACDC like attitude and grittiness and then on their third release hit the big time with Pyromania but this wasn't a fluke because they hit it even bigger with Hysteria. They continued the success on the next album and then toned it down till around 1999 with the release of Euphoria a back to basics mix of Hysteria and Pyromania but with out all the shine and gloss. Their subsequent albums haven't sold nearly as well but are really cool records. Hysteria was that huge record that got everybody talking and it overshadows all their other achievements. - frankmartin
Might be overrated, but hell I still find myself singing along in the car when one of their many hits come on the radio
They deserve the Praise they get they aren't overrated - christangrant
Ariana Grande is overrated
Never got the hype for this band. The same 3 chord pattern pop-punk that we've heard a thousand times over. Lost in Stereo, personally is the only song that kinda sticks out from the rest. But yeah, repetitive, necessarily bad but stuff we've heard a lot better before. - Sosbrad
Considering Motley's heyday was short lived you can hardly call them overrated. Most of the pop metal bands of the 1980s were short lived. They had their success and that was it. It isn't like people are still talking about them all the time like The Beatles or Pink Floyd or Nirvana. - frankmartin
They aren't overrated - christangrant
That comment makes no sense. Yeah Megadeth aren't Black Sabbath. So what? They're a completely different style of metal, and regardless, Megadeth are regarded as one of the all time greats of metal for a reason - they are.
People need to stop worshiping this band. They are no black sabbath
They are only overrated because of their fanbase - christangrant
This is just false direction with plastic guitars. - malamJONES
Not a rock band but yes they are overrated - christangrant
Not a rock band
Sellouts. 1000% sellouts. - naFrovivuSV 1 Comment
They're more underrated because not lots of people really listen to death metal.
Death isn't overrated at all - christangrant
Any Screamo band is overrated - christangrant
People act like they know dragon force but can only name through the fire and the flames - imabigpotato
Honestly, I'm a fan of KoRn, but I can understand why they're considered overrated. They make good music, sure, really good music, but people who label KoRn as "the godfathers of nu-metal" and claim that their one of the best 90s metal bands really bug me. Lead singer Jonathan Davis even claimed in an interview that he hates the nu-metal genre, and never considered KoRn to be metal to begin with, and that his band was labelled as "nu-metal" simply because people didn't know what genre they fit into.
Ah, yes. The quintessential band from the late years of the 20th century and early years of 21st century for those posers (mainly teenagers) who felt they were so cool for listening to that music. What?! They're still active? Guess nobody cared anymore.
Why do people like this band so much? All they did was make Nu Metal which isn't even that good of music.
They're very good but I have to admit johnny rotten and Sid vicious are overrated. Steve jones and Paul cook don't get much respect. Neither did the original bassist glen mattock.
Couldn't sing couldn't play Sid vicious seemed like a moron, there were so many other great punk bands The clash, ramones to name a few - ChatonNoir
Didn't the Sex Pistols only release one album? For some reason Nevermind seems like a punk album and getting all the creidt when the sex pistols did the same damn thing first. - frankmartin
Sid is overrated. Anarchy in the UK is still awesome, though.V 1 Comment
