Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

TheGreatest

The Top Ten

1 Gangnam Style - PSY

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...

But everybody knows this sucks. Not overrated. - I80

Matty B covered this as a young boi lol - Mocchiko

2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

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.

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.

The lyrics are nonsensical and make no sense whatsoever and this song is overall mediocre. Even Kurt Cobain hated this song. - UltraLunalaX

3 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

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).

Very good song but I think they have better songs such as when the levee breaks and Kashmir. - Solarband

I like it just fine, but it's not even their best song. - truckturner

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

4 Baby - Justin Bieber

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
(You wish)
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

IT IS SO BAD

The voice is so different out of all of the songs I've heard from justin bieber

5 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

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 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.

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.

Most overrated song hands down. Queen has way better songs and its pathetic how Rhapsody gets all the praise!

6 Let It Go - Idina Menzel

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?

Does frozen have fans? - Mocchiko

Yeah it sucks.. 2011

Horrible song. Crappy lyrics. Absolutely overrated.

7 Wonderwall - Oasis

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.

Am I the only one who hasn't heard it?

8 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

Repeating a sentance over twenty times is not a very good song. Actually, it should even be consitered a song.

Judging Carly Rae Jepsen just by this song is like judging The Beatles just on Revolution 9 - I80

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.

This song makes me wanna smash my head on a wall it's so annoying

9 Imagine - John Lennon

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.

Not that bad of a song.
Message is horrible.

A great song with a great message. Not overrated at all - Solarband

10 Umbrella - Rihanna

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...

I used to love this song. - Luckys

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.

The Newcomers

? Ddu-Du Ddu-Du - Blackpink

They sound like robots because the use so much autotune. The entire track is just computerized noise.

Good song but their slow songs are better - RoseWeasley

All of K-pop can basically be described as generic, heavily autotuned nonsense. The people who like this kind of music are mentally unstable teenage girls who care more about the band members' looks than the music itself, though I don't understand why someone of any age, race or gender would fall to such fake imagery. The entire K-pop industry is a joke.

? Angel of Death - Slayer

The Contenders

11 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

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.

Nooo what are you people thinking this song is not in any way overrated and it's hardly a favorite out of majority - EchoX0

One direction is basically 5 idiots who think they can sing but no they just STINK

This song is so annoying and the lyrics are meaningless

12 In the End - Linkin Park

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

Sucks - iliekpiez

I think it's less overrated than the crappy havana and gucci gang - B1ueNew

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.

13 The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - Ylvis

This song is terrible and it shouldn't have ever been a hit in the first place. - Soulstealer

What does the fox say? Oh man. - XxembermasterxX

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 is a joke song. - Userguy44

14 I Gotta Feeling - The Black Eyed Peas

Only good song by them though. - Userguy44

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

15 Single Ladies - Beyonce

It's Too Catchy too.. I just can't seem to get it out of my head!

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

If you hate it then you should've put a lid on it!

16 Friday - Rebecca Black

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

Appears to be a robot singing.

18 Crazy in Love - Beyonce

One of the few songs I like of her. - Userguy44

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

19 Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

Used to love this, but now I despise it! - Userguy44

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.!

20 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan

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

21 I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

People forget

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

22 Crank That - Soulja Boy

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!

23 Happy - Pharrell Williams

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

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.

28 We Will Rock You - Queen

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

It's overrated but it knida deserves to be since its such an amazing song. - Spongehouse

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.

29 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

28th? This should at least be in the top 10. - nooby32

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

Most streamed song on Spotify. Why? - Userguy44

30 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

This is the song that birthed the generic, uninspired pop-rap garbage. (Me, My Self and I anyone? ) - DaWyteNight

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.

31 Royals - Lorde

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

Madonna herself is good. Madonna fans! Have you ever heard of the album "Erotica"? NO! Well you should because it is underrated and her best album. "Oh, thanks but we'd rather listen to "Like A Virgin"! "

41 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

Evanescence is a great band. And I understand that a lot of people love this song (I do like it also). However, I don't get why this song gets so much praise. I mean, I see that song getting a lot of views on YouTube and being number 1 on lists of "best evanescence songs" all around the internet (even on TheTopTens). There is a lot of songs from that band that deserves more praise than this song (The Other Side, Like You, Your Star, Going Under, My Immortal (my favorite), Everybody's Fool, Lithium, Sweet Sacrifice, Call Me When You're Sober, etc). Overrated doesn't means bad, it's just that it gets too much fame/praise. I like that song but really, better than My Immortal, Going Under and Everybody's Fool? Never. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

It's a good song but I prefer my immortal by far. - UltraLunalaX

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

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

44 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

Comfortably Numb is very highly overrated and the only song I truly dislike, nay, hate, on the entire Wall album. The remainder of the album I strongly love and feel that it has 25 out of 26 very melodic and powerfully climactic songs whereas Comfortably Numb is just a dreary and weak song in comparison and yet it is highly overrated and appeals to the masses because it is a mellow sounding and boring track. It is honestly idiotic how this track overshadows all the best songs on the greatest album ever made, such as "another brick in the wall" parts 1-3, "the happiest days of our lives", "empty spaces", "goodbye blue sky", "waiting for the worms", "the trial", "in the flesh", "in the flesh? ", "the thin ice", "goodbye cruel world", "run like hell", "one of my turns", "hey you", "bring the boys back home", "don't leave me now", "is there anybody out there", "Vera", "young lust", "the show must go on", "outside the wall", "mother", "stop", & "nobody home" all better tracks for riff and ...more - PrinceZarbon

Great song but not their best. I prefer high hopes and echoes - UltraLunalaX

Deserves the praise, but I can see why it's on this list since it overshadows other great songs. - XxembermasterxX

I admit, I've hated on this way too much already, but here we go.
This is easily one of the the most overrated songs of 2017. I remember this song being #12 on the Best Songs of 2017 list on TheTopTens back when I was new on here. I call bull, this is a very sappy song with a grating vocal performance on the chorus. Glad it's now down to 72 on that list. - allamassal

I don't understand why everyone loves this song. One person even said it was underrated. How can a song be underrated if, like, only 5 out of 4,000,000,000 music listeners don't like it? - allamassal

46 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
47 Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
48 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Not overrated. - Userguy44

I really don't like rap music, and I also think Eminem is overrated at all. But this is by far his best song. There are other songs deserving more to be in Top 50. - Mesel

Not a bad song, but I've heard plenty of better rap songs that are nowhere near as popular as this.

No, the respect for this is enough, not overrated. - StarlightSpanks

Can you believe this (one of the most annoying songs of all time) sold more copies than ANY Beatles single? - allamassal

50 Believer - Imagine Dragons

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.
