Most Overrated Songs by Popular Music Artists That Wrote Better Songs

These music artists are famous for songs that did not define them. They did write music that is good but was drowned out by the songs that used less effort.

The Top Ten

1 Hey Jude - The Beatles
2 Loser - Beck
3 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Whilst a great song, I think come as you was better.

Heart-shaped Box is my favorite - shawnmccaul22

Good song but people overlook bleach and in utero which had some of nirvana's best work, incesticide was great too

4 Wonderwall - Oasis

I literally cannot stand this song, or the fact that Oasis has written much BETTER songs than this, but nobody knows them because they think of this whenever they think of Oasis! What the hell is wrong with everybody who thinks that songs like "Some Might Say", "Fade In-Out" & "Roll With It" are inept, instead turning their heads towards this stupid song?!?! It's effortless and uninspired, just accept it!

5 Creep - Radiohead
6 Should I Stay or Should I Go? - The Clash
7 We Will Rock You - Queen
8 Enter Sandman - Metallica
9 (What a) Wonderful World - Sam Cooke
10 Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2 - Pink Floyd

The Contenders

11 God Only Knows - The Beach Boys
12 Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis
13 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
14 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem
15 Valerie - The Zutons
16 Sunday Morning - The Velvet Underground

I used to like this, but I now I just find it boring - RecklessGreed

Personally, I think Heroin is much better. - SwagFlicks

17 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

I just don't see how anyone could think of this as one of the best songs ever! What are they all thinking, for crying out loud?!

I hate this song as much as a person who likes it hates logic. - PositronWildhawk

18 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day
19 Paradise - Coldplay

Honestly I think this is THE BEST Coldplay SONG EVER - TopTenListmaker

20 Hymn for the Weekend - Coldplay
