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, - ChatonNoir

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.

They're pretty overrated to be honest, I'm trying to like them but... I just can't

They need to be much higher on the list. They're not even rock, they're pop

I only like one song- My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).

I'm trying to understand their appeal. Still haven't found it. - naFrovivuS

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

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
