Top Ten Most Overrated Songs


The Contenders: Page 10

181 One Week - Barenaked Ladies

Pathetic white guy attempt at rapping. They just tossed a bunch of words that rhyme and came up with this turdfest of a song. Chikity china the chinese chicken? Have a drumstick and your brain stops ticking? What the effing eff is this?

I hate this song. And whoever put barracuda on is a wirdo - anonymous

182 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N Roses

Overrated and overused. I hear this song from the radio almost everyday. I mean; this song is only composed of 3 chords and Slash admitted he was clowning around when this song was created. In other words, this song is a joke from the start. Listen to something else for a change. - aeromaxx777

This was #6 on list of best songs of all time on this site. It's a cool riff and it's kinda catchy but SIX all time? It's not even the 6th best Guns N' Roses song, and Guns N' Roses are overrated to begin with. Everything bad about 80s rock is here: hair metal, Robert Plant-wannabe-vocals, repetitive riffs, and lame power ballad vocals.

I like the intro but the words and voice is just rubbish, stairway to heaven is not overrated, which one of you idiots made this list

Carry on my wayward child is the only song I like from the 80's

183 Disturbia - Rihanna

What this song rocks!

184 You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban

NOO! This song is amazing!

185 S&M - Rihanna
186 Don't Phunk with My Heart - The Black Eyed Peas
187 The Time (Dirty Bit) - The Black Eyed Peas
188 My Immortal - Evanescence

Evanescence, overrated? Nan, never

I can't beleve this song is on the list it is an amazing song so what if the lyrics are sad

God it's awful. When I first heard it on the radio I though it was classical

You've got to be joking. - DCfnaf

189 Bad - Michael Jackson
190 Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce

It's good, but I guess it's overrated because people praised it for the speed. - naFrovivuS

191 Hey Jude - The Beatles

This song is boring, overlong and far from one of their best songs. Within You Without You, Ticket To Ride and I Want You are all better than this.

How did the beatles and queen get in this list? People have no taste. Just because a song is popular doesn't mean it has no substance to it. Stop being judgemental and ignorant

Ultimately there will be a cure for these poor people that like this pish... We live in hope.

Extremly overrated. not bad, but most beatles songs are much better. I don't get the big deal about it

192 Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes

Wow I don't think people understood what he was trying to accomplish with this band. It was meant to be basic rock and rock which is exactly what it is. It might have gotten a little more play than it deserves but you can't tell me that guitar riff is anything short of spectacular. Also as if it's any different than Back in Black getting as much air time as it does

193 Watching the Detectives - Elvis Costello
194 Don't Speak - No Doubt
195 Happy Together - The Turtles

I know an idiot who thinks that the Turtles were a better 60s group than The Rolling Stones!
Yes, you're probably saying that this song was great, BUT IT ISN'T! It is one of the most dreary and uninspired songs in all of music! It's absolute trash that, even today, people call one of the best things to come out of the 60s! Seriously, The Turtles could not hold a candle to any good music! They were the 60s equivalent of One Direction, just accept it!

196 Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles

OK HANG ON JUST A SEC! This is one of the best songs ever and in my opinion, the best Beatles song! This is such an outrage! Whoever created from number 20 on is stupid and I hope you step on a Lego

197 Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division

Probably one of the most overrated bands of all time. Echo and the Bunnymen much better.

Awful, one riff throughout terrible lyrics, monotonous, brain numbing rubbish

I love joy division, but I hate that song

198 Thrift Shop - Macklemore

This song just annoys me. Macklemore cannot rap, the girl is way too old to be excused for her awful sections and the only thing ANYONE likes about this song is the trumpet or whatever it is.

The "song" is a piece of crap. Not kidding. And that sums up my thought on it. - PositronWildhawk

199 Torn - Natalie Imbruglia
200 Sir Duke - Stevie Wonder
