Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. more.

Elvis is NOT overrated. In fact, he's the king of rock and for a good reason. He shouldn't be on this list.

He's not the King of Pop, that's Michael Jackson. He's the King of rock along with the Beatles

When the hell did Elvis become overrated? I'm still in my teens but I already know that if Elvis didn't exist - music wouldn't have developed in this format! His the king of Pop < KING!

Why did he come twice here? - JakePlaid

62 Iggy Pop Iggy Pop James Newell Osterberg, Jr., known professionally as Iggy Pop, is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor.

Why would you put him on this list? Just why would you put him here?

I just cannot understand the people who like her. She actually cannot sing rap that well like Nicki Minaj, she only feat with others and make some catchy song like Fancy. Also, she's a racist, I think people overrated her too much.

63 Jessie J Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Annoying voice with those stupid over sung bouncing vocals

A attractive chick that fell after her song Money.

64 David Bowie David Bowie David Robert Jones was born in London on January 8, 1947, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He died in New York on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69, a hero to millions. more.
65 Jared Leto Jared Leto

I'm not a fan of TStM, but his vocal range is outrageous, he is amazing just like his studio albums when he is live and he shows a lot of emotion in his voice. Don't see the point of why he's on here, as a front man he is incredible. - Plonderss

Why do people like him? He's an actor not a singer. Very overrated. - lukestheman4

66 Jay-Z Jay-Z Shawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name Jay Z, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and investor. He is best known for his album Reasonable Doubt.

What's the whole thing about Jay-Z anyway? I Don't get it. He is the owner of the Nets, a rapper AND he designed NBA 2K13 (partially). Really?

He's a no-talent thief who's only real talent is appearing on other people's songs.

Jay - Z is talented. Remember albums like "Reasonable Doubt", "The Blueprint" and "The Best Of Both Worlds". He used to make good music. Right after the "American Gangster" album his career went downhill and he just became another mainstream artist.

Don't get this fat ugly boring no talent bum. Good at hitting women and getting slapped around.

Since that time, Simpson has made many recordings, starred in several television shows, movies and commercials, launched a line of hair and beauty products, more.

Don't like her voice but I wouldn't mind tapping that ass.

I remember when she popped up in 98 or 99, and thought she had a great voice, but she totally ruined her voice.

68 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

Just a bunch of okay singers who became famous because of there looks and because a lot of teen girls like their crappy pop music with lyrics they didn't even write.

At least they're on the list, shocking they're not in the rope ten though.

It's bad enough we have to listen to them. Now you're making us look at them, too?

Don't people have to think they're good to begin with to be overrated?

69 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

Very annoying, talentless, and very, very overrated. When I herd she was gonna be on American idol, I quit watching it. I quit watching it when Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carry where on there because all they ever did was argue with each other. Honestley I'd rather watch them argue then watch Jennifer Lopez tell people how good or bad they are at singing.

Got her start when she played Selena in the 1997 movie of the same name. works very hard. not in the same league a singer as Selena Quintanilla, though. who cares, she's Rich!

Like her movies there's something about them. There not good, but I still like them. Hmm.

She acts like she thinks she's still 25.

71 Lea Michelle

It could be the facial expressions she makes that make me like her even less, but I don't like listening to her sing. A lot of the time she just mimics the songs exactly and never puts herself into them. I usually think I wish someone else was singing the cover, because most of the other cast of glee had better voices suited to certain songs. Haven't heard her solo album so not sure if that's better. Overrated on Glee, but then again so was Glee.

She has a great voice! And she's done great work on Broadway too, she was good as Eponine in Les Mis and Wendla in Spring Awakening

72 Toshi - X-Japan Toshi - X-Japan

I remembered the presence of journey in his voice. he is overrated because his voice is not unique - ronluna

75 Hayley Williams Hayley Williams Hayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore.

For all those people say she shouts she is in a pop rock band for crying out loud.

Can't stand her voice! She belts all the time and yes, I do agree she is very shouty. I find her band very overrated, if not the epitome of overrated.

She can't sing, she's far too shouty. There are far better female lead singers than her.

77 Melissa Etheridge Melissa Etheridge

She is a one trick pony. Over emote on everything.

78 Fergie Fergie Stacy Ann "Fergie" Ferguson is an American singer, songwriter, fashion designer, television host, and actress.

She utterly looks like a chimp, some of her songs are catchy and energetic though.

I don't like Fergie, but the song she did with slash "beautiful dangerous" is a really great song. If you don't know it you should check out the video!
