Top Ten Most Overrated Songs
The Top Ten
Doesn't deserve 1000000000 YouTube views
Stupid, annoying, awful, disgusting... If this song's video is the most watched clip ever then I'd rather prefer the world ended on 21st...
This is obviously overrated, and is only so popular because of the silly dance style and because many people view it as funny, but that isn't what a song should be about. Meaningful and gripping songs should have far more views than ridiculous crap like this.
And who has voted for Smells Like Teen Spirit and Wonderwall? They are brilliant songs, and aren't overrated at all in my opinion. - EvilAngel
Also, Smells Like Teen Spirit is overrated because it's #4 on best songs of all time when it's quite generic and very weak.
This song is the milestone for the decline in good music. I mean it doesn't even count as a proper song, it's not like when you ask your friend what they're listening to, you're gonna say 'oh Gangnam Style' no! This song is only not forgotten is because it's the most popular video on youtube, which makes me sad that 1) people have listened to it multiple times and 2) people still care about this song - Aquaturtle
This song sounds good, but you can tell that it is completely commercial. The lyrics are nonsense and have no meaning. Cobain himself started to dislike this song because it was basically feel-good meaningless pop. This song didn't come from his heart.
It's an okay song, and it's riff is obviously very memorable. But it's just meaningless commercial pop.
Not to say that it isn't an important song, because this is infact the song that fueled the grunge movement into becoming what is now known as alternative rock, the most used music genre in history!
Sure it was important, and yes, it is catchy, but it's nothing more, not great, and especially not "brilliant" or "outstanding".
Nirvana are a great band who have made many, many more songs, a lot of which are better than this grungy pop song.
This is one of the best songs ever what about this song is overrated - simmonsjen11
Never understood the huge critical acclaim of this song. It's the quintessential grunge song, yes but that doesn't make it one of the best songs ever. It's too simple, nothing special, just powerchords and emotional, dark singing plus one of the laziest solos ever. We could also praise Blietzkrieg Bop now as the best song ever as it's the same to punk as this is to grunge but at the end of the day both are simple, yet entertaining songs but really nothing more.
Overall a very good song, but it really pains me that a band as great as Led Zeppelin, with such a large and varied body of work, gets remembered primarily for this song. I think of it in terms of word associations, where you say a word and ask someone to just say the first thing that pops in their head. For example, if I say vegetable, most people would say carrot. If I say Led Zeppelin, most people are going to say "oh, Stairway to Heaven". It's just too bad, because they are so much more than one famous song. Honestly, there are about 10 to 15 Zeppelin songs that are better, and at least two on the same album, probably more (Black Dog and Misty Mountain Hop for sure). Again not a bad song, but definitely overrated if it is considered Zeppelin's best song. Don't even get me started on people who say this has the best guitar solo ever, again, not even Jimmy Page's best guitar solo (Heartbreaker in my opinion).
This is my 2nd favorite song how is it overrated it has a beautiful slow rock sound at the beginning and then it progresses to hard rock and all together sounds perfect how the heck is this overrated - simmonsjen11
Very good song but I think they have better songs such as when the levee breaks and Kashmir. - Solarband
This song is not overrated, it is simply a masterpiece, slowly building power with epic lyrics, flutes, guitars and singing and than the solo (one of the best in rock history) and great powerful outro. I would say it's kinda underrated these days because not many people listen to it as it deserves. - levtomas1998
Underrated? Are you out of your damn mind? This is as heavily regarded a masterpiece as "Bohemian Rhapsody"! It's totally not underrated! - DCfnaf
I think a lot of people don't really understand what "overrated" means. It doesn't mean the song is bad, it means that someone feels that it gets more credit than it deserves. It's opinionated. Now for why I feel it's overrated. The first part of the song is really good. If that was the whole song, I wouldn't have this problem. Then the solo hits and that's when the song goes downhill for me. Really, that's what Brian May does? Thank God he got a lot better later in Queen's life. That solo is also very overrated. Brian May has many better solos (Somebody to Love for example). The solo fits the song, but it could have done so much more. Listen to "Goodbye to Romance" and you'll know what I'm talking about. After that we get this piano and vocals part. So? Freddie bangs the piano and they sing. It's okay, it just would have been better as its own song. Then we have the "climax" which is okay and had a nice lead in. Then we return to the great slow part of ...more
I'm sick of seeing this song topping all the 'greatest songs of all time' lists. I mean, it's by no means a bad song, but to say that it's the best song of all time is simply ridiculous.
OK, first of all, why the HECK is this higher than Let it Go? I know that overrated doesn't mean bad, it means more like overplayed. I don't think so. This song deserves to be played as long and as much as it has been. Honestly, it should be played MORE. I never hear people listening to it! I mean, I wasn't even close to being alive when it came out (I was born over a decade after Freddie Mercury died, so WAY after this song came out), but I still love it. It's different, it makes some sense but is also somewhat nonsensical...and the vocals and instruments are AMAZING! I'm so sad that Freddie died, but I'm really glad he and the rest of Queen were able to make the music he did when he was alive. RIP LEGEND - ForeverRunningToYou
I really like this song, like easily in top 10 queen songs, but it's easily the most overplayed song of all time. Everyone declares this song as so revolutionary and different but a year earlier Queen released a song called 'March Of The Black Queen' which has a very similar style, multiple random segments that come together to make a whole song. I personally think that song is so much better mainly because the segments are shorter and can be both really subtle and extreme in changes. BR is very big and extreme and makes the segments a lot longer, which is fine but some of them are really good while others don't grab me as much.
This isn't really overrated because nearly everyone hates it
This song is so bad that even if only one person liked this, it would still be overrated. Also, the track was popular with critics.
Here's me reacting to some of the lyrics sadly.
You know you love me
(I don't and never will)
I know you care
Just shout whenever, and I'll be there
(I'd rather shout to Barbie)
You are my love, you are my heart
(Sorry man but you're not my love and you're not my heart)
And we will never, ever, ever be apart
(I ran away when I got news your Mum was pregnant with you)
Are we an item? Girl quit playing
(You're an item with a fish, I'm not playing)
"We're just friends." What are you saying?
(It's cause you know I hate you and always will. I'll never be your friend)
Said "There's another" and looked right in my eyes
(I became blind afterwards)
My first love broke my heart for the very first time
(All your loves will)
And I was like
Baby Baby Baby, oh
(You're a baby who cries every night for love)
Like, Baby, Baby, Baby, oh
(Crying every night)
Like, Baby, Baby, Baby, oh
(Still crying like you always ...more
THERE'S NO WAY THIS SONG SHOULD BE BELOW SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT AND WONDERWALL!
At least those songs were ACTUALLY MUSIC!
Smells like teen spirit introduced a new era of music. That song made Nirvana Big!
What made this song big? A Bunch of girls who have no taste in music like it. This song is bad and popular so it should be at least 2 - AnythigGrunge4
The Foodfight! of songs. Also the most overhated song ever made.
It's already a couple of years
And people still sing
A song overrated
That it just
The kids are singing it
And that song just won't die
Could not bear it
Even if I try
Just go away
Why do you stay
There are other songs that they should know
They just don't let this song go
They sing it again oh no!
Let it die
Let it die
Can't stand it anymore
Let it die
Let it die
This song is such a bore
I don't care
If it's popular
Other songs are better
I don't care about Elsa either
It's funny how many people
Like this dumb movie so much
With characters so boring
And they still like it a bunch
Frozen's so bad it makes me sick
And queen really stink
This movie's boring and it's not deep
It makes me sleep!
Let it die
Let it die
Let this song just go away
Let it die
Let it die
People sing it every day
I can't stand
To hear it again
This song is terrible! It sucks! The lyrics are stupid, it's completely unrelateable, the vocals are generic, the music is nothing new, and when kids start singing it all the damn time, it gets really annoying! And people act like this song is amazing! They act like it's the musical reincarnation of God! What is so good about this song!? I don't understand it and I never will! This is the most overrated song of all time! But that's not even the worst part. The worst part is that the next commercial excuse for a song Disney makes is also going to praised beyond belief! It's like Disney is an endless supply of crappy music! Why do people eat it all up?
I am SO SICK OF HEARING THIS SONG. It's 2019, first of all, and the movie came out in...2013! A few days ago, I heard a girl screaming, "LET IT GO! " and I'm like, 'how about we let the song go'? It's been SIX. YEARS. The lyrics and the vocals aren't bad, it's just that after the billionth time of hearing it, it just SUCKS to listen to. And now Frozen 2 is coming out. I wonder if that will make the Top Ten Worst Disney Movies list as well. - ForeverRunningToYou
Horrible song. Crappy lyrics. Absolutely overrated.
I've said this from Day 1:- Oasis are not good at making ballads, they are good at making guitar-rock headbangers. Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger, Cast No Shadow, Don't Go Away... were all epic fails. So for now, let's leave those cheesy ballads for talent-less Pop-stars to make. Shall we? - Joeljohns249
Great song by an even greater band. However I think it would have been better to see a song like live forever take this spot instead. - Solarband
Americans wouldn't understand Oasis and Britpop in general. "Wonderwall" doesn't come close to showcasing the greatness of Oasis, but I'm not going to tell you the great songs by this band. Go look them up yourself.
Like someone put for the Queen Song, this is overrated not bad. This song even still is the go to song for guitarist to impress girls and probably will be for a while.
Not a Bad song just over played.
Repeating a sentance over twenty times is not a very good song. Actually, it should even be consitered a song.
Everybody said it was the best song of 2012. It's extremely repetitive and Carly Rae Jepsen's is nothing special. Far, far better songs were released in 2012.
Judging Carly Rae Jepsen just by this song is like judging The Beatles just on Revolution 9 - I80
CAN NOT stand listening to this song at all, I don't even care what anyone else thinks but this song should be staying as 1st place as THE WORST SONG EVER INVENTED and most importantly THE MOST OVERRATED SONG EVER HEARD!
P.S. Where the heck is blurred lines, it should be right under this worthless, ridiculous, horrible, and most ANNOYING song as 2nd!
Homo sapiens are one of the most aggressive and dangerous animals on Earth. Writing a song about wanting world peace is pointless and, coming from a person like John Lennon, is just pathetic. "Imagine" is a worthless, boring composition that is best ignored.
I think the worst part of this song is how unrealistic it is.
World peace is impossible.
Trash, John Lennon preaching his globalist atheist worldview to a barely listenable tune, this might actually be more overrated than Queen's We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.
Ok which of you monkeys got enough trauma to the head to actually put Sweet Child o' mine, Bohemian Rhapsody and Stairway to Heaven on this list, you all need to get shot in the head with a shotgun to finish the job, do you know what good music is? Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the best and most unique songs around, Stairway to Heaven is a masterpiece, seriously, someone try to play the solo I dare you, and even if Slash was messing around, its still better that Lennon trying to write music, lets face it his best years were with the Beatles and all his other stuff is crap,
Under my umbrella, are you kidding me... What kind of lyrics are these, Rihanna really needs to work on her lyrics, or else she'd make her fan falling fall...
Rihanna's best work is when she's featured. Run This Town and Love The Way You Lie come to mind. Every time she's on her own, the result is fairly awful.
Her best songs are with other people, honestly. Umbrella honestly isn't nearly as bad as some songs on this list, and at least she can sing.
I love Rihanna, but she is so much more than this song, and work. This song is so over appreciated/hated, like Rihanna has 8 albums, and 75% of the songs in it are better than this - Aquaturtle
Just plain overrated. Everybody's obsessed with that band and that song was everywhere on the radio and it was a pretty annoying song to me. Everybody is obsessed with that band only with that song and how hot the band members are. Overall just a overrated song.
One direction is basically 5 idiots who think they can sing but no they just STINK
Nooo what are you people thinking this song is not in any way overrated and it's hardly a favorite out of majority - EchoX0
Every since they guest star on Icarly with that song that's why this band & this annoying song wins every year for favorite music group every year at the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards every year this decade
You guys seriously need to learn what "overrated" means. I mean look at this list. Smells Like Teen Spirit, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine... But most important: Bohemian Rhapsody. Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't say I'm a fan of that song. But I can't call it "overrated", just because I don't like it that much. Truth is, Bohemian Rhapsody is great for what it is. Now In the End is something else, because although I love it, I have to admit that it's just not as special as it's portrayed. You know what I mean? Bohemian Rhapsody - great song, just not my taste. In the End - one of my all time favorites, but technically gets too much praise. Learn the difference. - Mesel
Breaking the habit, don't stay, easier to run, numb, what I've done, one step closer and pretty much the whole entire meteora album is a thousand times better than this overrated garbage! - UltraLunalaX
Linkin park gets way too much credit on this website. It's good to finally see the opposite. Like good grief, them and queen use up most of the top ten everything to do with music.
Dude, go listen to guilty all the same, faint, lost in the echo, and burn it down and In the end will sound like call me maybe compared to those songs.
Apparently, the artist of this song doesn't know what a fox actually says, so instead, he makes the most obnoxious sounds I've ever heard in my entire twelve years of life here on planet Earth. Plus, it's like a little kid song when the artist describes the noises animals make. But the weirdest part is when the artist describes a fox speaking to a horse using Moorse code. The artist also calls a fox "beautiful like an angel in disguise." Quite frankly, this song is complete crap. - RockFashionista
This song is terrible and it shouldn't have ever been a hit in the first place. - Soulstealer
This song is just... WEIRD. The lyrics are very silly and its worse than Gangnam Style.
One of the most annoying songs ever, the fact that it was made as an advertisement is very evident. Total trash that should never have gotten any airplay. Psi is trash and his music sucks but people who like and support this trash are just as bad.
There are so many great songs on this list, yet many of the far far worse songs on this list are considered great as well so surely that makes them the more over rated songs. Small flaws are found in great songs like bohemian rhapsody, smells like teen spirit and many more in this list, but when pieces of garbage like this are put in the same league (and I have heard people do this, even on radio) surely that makes them the more over rated songs. - LMARINE
I am sick, absolutely sick of hearing this god awful repetitive uninspired piece of trash everywhere. I mean it's over 6 years old and everyone still shouts the lyrics whenever it comes on. How the hell are masterpieces like Stairway to Heaven, Smells like Teen Spirit, Bohemian Rhapsody (all of which might be a tad overrated but nothing compared to the Black Eyed Peas) ahead of this? I'm absolutely disgusted by my generation.
In my opinion, this was when The Black Eyed Peas started to go downhill (yes, really! ). While this is enjoyable, it's nowhere near as much as some of their earlier work which in hindsight weren't masterpieces to begin with but at least they demonstrated a semblance of identity. Here they sound like anyone else on the charts. Oh well, at least this song isn't as bad as some of their later stuff (Rock Your Body, anyone? ). - Mrveteran
Why are song such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Stairway To Heaven, A Day In The Life, Bennie And The Jets, and Imagine on this? This song gets way too much attention. And while the others do get a ton of attention, they get it for a reason, while this is just autotuned garbage.
If you hate it then you should've put a lid on it!
It's not a horrible song but it does get very old very quickly, especially back when it was played repeatedly on the radio.
Not only overrated, but also a pretty annoying song to listen to. - Userguy44
Hey Kanye your girl Beyonce created on of the worst songs of all time!
Of all time!
Not to mention the video is really stupid. She has no lyrical depth whatsoever with this as a prime example of just how shallow she is.
This song is overrated in a sense that it gets too much credit for it being hailed as the "worst song ever made" when it deserves nowhere near that title. And I've heard worse songs than that such as "Stupid Hoe" by Nicki Minaj for example which is just tuneless and repeats itself over and over again in my opinion. As for "Friday", I admit that it's not a great song (just a good party song) but at least it has some sort of melody unlike "Stupid Hoe" and is far from the worst song ever that so many people make it out to be and credit it as.
Overhated. Not overrated. I've never met anyone who likes this song. - Misfire
Calling something the worst song ever is somewhat positive, because it assumes that the song is amusingly bad, and it's actually hard to make a worse song. This is not true for this one, I can think of 20 worse melodies than Friday's. - Alkadikce
This is so god damn stupid, this song really annoys me. How did she get famous for this piece of $@! %. How did this song ever get airplay? I believe EVERYONE else on the planet could make a better song than this trash.
Best song of the 2000's? I think that poll shared their own opinion and nothing more. This song topped only 6 or 7 countries. Totally overrated piece of trash - Alexandr
Horrible song, annoying and over played. Anytime I hear any Beyonce song change the station. All because of crazy in love. Get over it Beyonce sucks
Take this off its an classic! - JaysTop10List
I love this song, it's a classic. But if you don't like Beyonce, chances are this song really gets on your nerves because Beyonce kind of kick-started her career with this. I think beyonce sold out after I Am... Sasha Fierce. This songs a classic though
This isn't overrated, it was just overplayed. Thunder is both overrated and overplayed. Even after a year and a half I still hear this "lightning thunda, lightning thunda" being played frequently on the radio and elsewhere.
I swear to god, I got so mad when I saw Bohemian Rhapsody on the list (their best song, as rated as it needs) but not We Will Rock You (the MOST OVERRATED SONG IN HISTORY) First off, it's a boring sports anthem, with only drums and one guitar solo. Second off, 90 percent of the people that know this song have no idea what Queen is. Third, good GOD! I expected to see this as one of the top 10, and Bohemian Rhapsody is 7th? I know you can have opinions, but this... Good lord... I'm going to lay down for a second
This is such a dumb song. It took no skill to write, takes none to play, and the lyrics are really stupid, too.
You just listen to justin bieber and you don't know what real music is - Th3Zm0nst3r
I actually kind of agree with this. It's really good but I do think it's overrated.
It's overrated but it knida deserves to be since its such an amazing song. - Spongehouse
The vocals are funny to be honest. I’m sorry. 😅 - Misfire
Why is this song so popular? It is absolutely horrendous, with an awful chorus that sticks in your head in the worst way possible and a hilariously terrible attempt at rapping. There is nothing good about this song, yet it is somehow a huge hit. If 95% of the population hated this song, the remaining 5% would still easily justify calling it overrated.
First off, who names a song party rock anthem? Second off, who names a band lmfao? I never saw how this song became the biggest hit last summer. It has no flavor or substance - queen11
This isn't a Rock Anthem at all!
If you want to know what true Rock is, listen to Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Who, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix, Doors, etc.!
Probably the only good song by a band called, "LMFAO? " What kind of name is that? I like this song, but it's not he absolute best I've heard.
No. 1 greatest songs of all time? I give this song to listen to every people in my school, and no one like it
Probaly slightly overrated, not the greatest song of all time, but up there - RecklessGreed
Other Beatles songs are better to be honest, but this isn't bad. - Misfire
The lyrics actually seem as basic and repetitive than most modern pop songs (and definitely much more so than The Beatles' other songs). The phrase "I want to hold your hand" is repeated 11 times, and the phrase ". I haven't actually listened to this (or at least I don't remember hearing this), so the actual song probably makes up for that. I would prefer Here Comes The Sun and Come Together to this though. Take this as a Beatles fan (not an annoying one though). - allamassal
Bland crap. 1/5 - AlphaQ
Nobody likes it, therefore its not over rated
All the idiots tried to look cool dancing to it and it got big and soulja boy got 15 minutes of fame, and now works at burger king
Pure cancer. One time I saw a guy dabbing to this song, and he called it a "classic". I think I lost brain cells from that statement.
This song sucks! Even if it got 0.001% credit, it would be enough!
Not really. A lot of people consider it as one of the worsts songs of that year, or even of all time. - Misfire
Maybe once Robin Thicke hits puberty this song will be okay. Probably not. Also, who was dumb enough to put Smells Like Teen Spirit, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine, and Bohemian Rhapsody on here? - chris.cg.102
This is not worst songs but overrated so I see no problem in the mentioned songs being here. - Alkadikce
Most popular song of 2013 is so annoying and there are better songs this year.
I still don't understand how a song that took 30 minutes to make got so popular. The song is a plague.
This song is a piece of garbage just like cardi herself and should be top 5. - DaWyteNight
It's really overrated! - TheFourthWorld
This is annoying
Yes! I agree!
I remember this song being so overplayed and so boring to listen to. This song and blurred lines killed pop music.
Because I'm crappy! (Clap along if you feel this song is overplayed)
I want to kill myself when I hear this song. Apparently it almost "gave peace" to the world, and let me tell you: A world that had world peace because of Happy, is a world I would hate to live in. I don't care how many wars wouldn't start.
So you'd rather live in a post apocalyptic world with high crime rates and global temperature changes? - yungstirjoey666
Almost everyone that I know loves this. I hate it. So overplayed! - RiverClanRocks
Doesn't deserve to be played at EVERY party, sang by EVERY teenager, or played on the radio EVERY 5 minutes. It's not THAT good of a song.
I saw a little kid sing this at a talent show. *shudders* - Emberleap
I know,STUPID kids bop copy this and everyone sings it.I can't go th rough 1 second with out hearing a stupid girl in my class silently sing it!
THIS SONG DOO DOO - lilrocketman
This is a ripoff of two songs - christangrant
This isn't even my favorite from Led Zeppelin II. Not even close. I think there's better songs on that album. Not to mention, as christiangrant said, this song is a ripoff of two songs. - Metarock
Crawling innn my skiiin, these wounds they will not heeeaaal! - LordOfTheOnionRings
I don't like Cold Play, but for this, X&Y, Talk, Clocks and Fix You, I make an exception.
I don't usually like Coldplay at all, but Viva la Vida is okay. I'd say that Yellow is a lot more overrated.
this is a song from a rock band. but is this a rock song all i could hear was the piano coldplay has better songs than this
Coldplay are a great band, but this isn't their best song.
I understand that artists change and evolve their music. But if it is a good evolution. Its ok that the song is not another slow guitar one but I mean this song has the beat of another 80 crappy pop songs (Rockabye comes to my mind). The lyrics are simple and awful and is completely obvious that Ed Sheeran made this song because knew it was going to be a complete hit, there is no feelings, there is nothing, but when Ed Sheeran poops something is instantly gold.
This Might Be One Of The Worst Songs Ever - VideoGamefan5
Never understood the appeal of this song
Second most overrated song ever made.
Just a hair metal anthem with no meaning whatsoever, yet people call it the greatest song of all time just because it's old.
I love this song, but it is kinda overrated - Spongehouse
TAKE THIS OFF THE LIST NOW
Not Bon Jovi’s best, deal with it. - Userguy44
"Nothing last forever, not evan the cold November rain". This stuff is pure gold!
It's a nice song but it is too overrated.
To be honest, this is the last good song they'd ever release, so there's not much to say about this.
Guns and roses is pretty overrated, but I don’t think this song is.
In The chorus that little kiddish voice is somewhat catchy.
This song is awesome - Spongehouse
This song is so obnoxious. It sounds like little kids are singing it, if you
call this music, you must be deaf. every time I hear this song I cringe.
I'm sorry, but I really don't like it.
Most overrated song ever made. Only less than 2 billion people have to see this to match the total human population.
I'm tired of this song, in my opinion, it doesn't deserves all those views.
This song has garnered almost twice as much viewers as Gangnam Style during a 2 year time span rather than 7 years. - Frogg
3 billion views for a Spanish sex song
Yep it's 2019, and it's still at a mass popularity, it just hit six billion. - Bammer73
I've kept hearing this song on the radio and on T.V. and no one will shut up about it. Same thing goes for Someone Like You.
HOW DARE YOU! This song is amazing and got Adele, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of our era, the attention she deserved. But everyone gets their own opinion, I guess.
I love how you start with "HOW DARE YOU! " and end with "but everyone gets their opinion". - Alkadikce
This was probably the single most annoying song I have heard on the radio. they literally played it once every 25 minutes. I'm like, who actually LIKES this? The singing is atrocious, the song puts me to sleep, and I practically memorized this song caus I heard it so many times.
Two words: Truly Annoying
Makes baby sound like One - lilrocketman
Seriously, what's so special about this garbage? Except that two famous sweepers are carrying it
You may think it's garbage because you don't know the storyline. That's why people don't like All About That Bass - AlphaQ
What?! How can you call Eminem a clown? Eminem, one of, IF NOT THE GREATEST lyricists and musicians of all time! How?! YOU ARE AN IDIOT! YOU REALLY don't UNDERSTAND MUSIC
Eminem still is the best. Though I think Rihanna ruined it. Eminem still covered some of it to good.
In terms of Eminem status, I'll say this isn't one of his best. Definitely preferred Not Afraid and No Love.
Royals is Extremely overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193
I don't understand why everyone is all like " ROYALS IS LIKE MY FAVORITE SONG" and how it's even "real music." Like come on there is way better songs too. This didn't even deserve to be #1. Same with Roar.
I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE this song! From the other stuff I've heard from Lorde, I can easily say that she will be an artist that will make no good songs in my book.
Royals is better than most pop songs by a wide margin (the topic it's about- opulence and its irrelevance- has a lot of actual meaning), it's definitely one of her worst songs. Compared to her other better songs, this is way overrated. Ribs, 400 Lux, and pretty much every song on Pure Heroine is better, and most songs from Melodrama are, too. By no means is it bad, but it's simply does not deserve the credit it's giventures compared to her other songs
The only reason why everybody knows Green Day because of that song. It's on the radio everywhere and it is one of the most viewed music videos on YouTube that is made by Green Day.
This song honestly sucks compared to their other stuff
Other Green Day songs are better. - Misfire
The best song of 2009 by far and by the way the sample is not even Green Day ik the website is not awolled to
This song makes me puke so much. I think CIA should use this song to torture enemies. If I had to choose to listen this song for half second, or get shot, I would choose the last one. - Disturbedpotato
I can't stand this song it actually sucks. So overrated
This is the only good song Lady Gaga has - Spongehouse
I don't agree with you that it's the only good song she has, but I'm glad you think it's a good song. - PandasNGaga
Do you want to smoke weed then din
How is this overrated when everybody thinks it is a lot more awful than it really is? - I80
The music video to this song is really disturbing, that video should have got some Controversy
Stupid song with no real meaning whatsoever.
It's a great song, but come on. It has been overplayed time and time again being features on so many movies, and I personally think that it isn't even journeys best work
Something that makes a song overrated is that it's popular and everyone thinks it's better than it actually is, but that is completely wrong for this song! It's so creative, the story that it tells, all of the different parts. This is not in any way overrated. - EchoX0
Annoying song relegated to bars where drunk girls scream along.
I don't understand the love for this song. My whole family loves but I just think it's a meh - Spongehouse
Horrible Lyrics, horrible song and a misleading title. Most overrated song of the last 5 years
This song is meant to be All About the Butt.
Are you shaming skinny people - Mocchiko
Bad song, but so catchy! - Userguy44
This is one of the most overrated songs of all time along with In My Feelings and Shape of You. Cardi B and the background music are annoying here, and yet this song has been in the top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100 nearly all summer. - allamassal
Very annoying song - Spongehouse
This song is complete garbage.
This has a RIPPED OFF beat from Feel Good Inc.
First Nicki, then Gorillaz.
Watch your back, 90s artists. Cardi's coming for ya
I love System of a Down. They are true musical geniuses. However, everyone thinks that this is their best work. Although the song is good and the ending is brilliant, it really isn't great. It doesn't really fit in with their group. I can think of 10 songs by System of a Down that I would rather listen to then this one. - Potato1029
I don't see why people like this song in the first place. It's just shouting and soft singing combined. - Songsta41
This song is really overrated.
10 System Of A Down songs better than this :
F**k The System
Toxicity - Disturbedpotato
It's not even that good of a song!
