Most Overrated Rock Bands

81 the gazzettE

those fangirls like to see a band with good looking members without the music. their music is good but they forgot other bands which introduced visual kei - ronluna

Not every The gazettE fan is like this. @ronluna, stop judging bands based on their fanbase. You're just like the X fans I hate: Put down other bands so their favorite band looks good. I love X Japan but they're not my favorite. There are tons of bands that aren't X Japan.

Also, there are other bands that founded VK, not just X Japan and D'erlanger. What about BUCK-TICK? What about Luna Sea?!

The band's harsh vocals and fast paced tempos helped inspire speed more.
84 Heart Heart Heart is an American rock band that first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide.

Actually, three of them are men.

Absolutely trash

Yeah, OK so they're women. Big deal. Their music is weak. So there.

85 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

one of the worst bands ever - how come Queen, Metallica and Led Zeppelin are on the list - best bands of all time - idolangelx13

Are Daughtry even rock? Most of the songs are just Kelly Clarkson-type songs (but sung from a male perspective) but engineered with loud rock guitars (their debut CD sounds too loud! ). What a sham.

Love this band, great guitar and snazzy licks

Yay there in last place because Pantera isn't overrated at all - christangrant

Get this out of the list - Disturbedpotato

91 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. more.

This band is the definition of overrated. Their debut was 4/5 stars at most, and that's the only thing they have worth listening to. It's just the truth. - papervinnie

I don't think Pearl Jam is as good as people think. Their only good album, Ten, had a couple good ones on it. The rest of everything just isn't that good. I think the only one that is maybe a bit underrated is Mike McCready.

First of all, Ten is definitely NOT their only good album. It's their best, but apparently you haven't ventured past the mainstream stuff. Every song on Ten (except for Oceans) are some of the best songs of all time, but I see you're only judging the hits. Listen to more of their music and you'll see how painfully wrong you are. - Songsta41

Should be on number 1 of overrated bands. Can't stand the singers voice - ChatonNoir

Eh not really - christangrant

92 Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd were an English progressive rock band formed in London. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), more.

If you look into their more obscure albums, especially the ones with Syd Barrett, then you'd change your mind about them being overrated. The music they made during those early years were way ahead of their time, and criminally under looked.

Pink Floyd are NOT underrated. Unfortunately, a good portion of their music is. Albums like The Final Cut, The Division Bell, Obscured by Clouds are traditionally overlooked by fans.

Guys, their stuff from the 70's is great, but their work from the 60's was great too. Give it a listen, you might change your mind before you say Pink Floyd is overrated. - naFrovivuS

Pink Floyd is not overrated at all they deserve the praise they get - christangrant

I've only heard song "somebody told me", which sucked. - Disturbedpotato

I don't understand the hype.

A meh-ish band at best.

98 Sound Nation
99 Cage the Elephant

This band sucks so bad somebody needs to cage them in a soundproof room

100 Bruce Springsteen and the E- Street Band

He's good at writing songs for other people. But if he does the songs... well... it makes dogs howl. Pure garbage. I don't know who came up with "The Boss"... I can only speculate that he's The Boss of crap!

Bruce is one of the best musicians ever

This guy can't sing and the songs are filled with cliches

That's why he's the boss!
