Top Ten Most Overrated Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Yeah! - Usher Yeah! - Usher V 2 Comments
42 Story of My Life - One Direction Story of My Life - One Direction

It's one of the worst songs that I've heard till date. Excessively overrated. Deserves to be no. 1 in this list.

I'm sorry, this was one of the best songs of 2012 in my personal opinion. Lyrics are meaningful. Why so much hate?

43 Royals - Lorde Royals - Lorde

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.

Royals is Extremely overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193

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.

Let me get this out of the way, I hate Lorde. She's more plastic than a doll. Her personality just screams Tumblr famous user who is third wave feminist in disguise as a weird edgy teen. It's pretentious, and "Royals" is the cherry on top of an overrated, overglorified piece of crap.

44 Firework - Katy Perry Firework - Katy Perry

Honestly, I can write better lyrics. Why do people like meaningless music? And an annoying, racist, homophobic, religious fanatic person to boot?

Besides, songs like November Rain shouldn't be above crap like this. A song like November Rain actually has MEANING

I know someone with a terrible and racist voice, but I could put his singing over Firework any day.

45 We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus

Don't even get me started on this one...

This song fails to be a party song and is a bad song in general. If you want TRUE party songs then go listen to No.5 and Everywhere I go by Hollywood Undead.

WHAT IS THIS?!? Shes like, "Lets make a HORRIBLE song about partying! [through in the drugs to]. STOP Miley!

Ok, for once I'll defend a Mike WiLL Made-It song. This isn't overrated, if anything this overhated. - WonkeyDude98

46 We Belong Together - Mariah Carey We Belong Together - Mariah Carey

How Can This Be On This List? -_-

47 Thiller - Michael Jackson Thiller - Michael Jackson

People just love to try and take Michael down a notch. He was the greatest entertainer the world has ever known. Absolute perfectionist

This song is nowhere near overrated or underrated. - malamJONES

Overrated just because of the video.

I totally think that Michael Jackson was really overrated and I'm sick of people thinking he's God or bigger than others just because of this bull song yes yes "Thiller" is overrated there's one song I think is really underrated is David Bowie Moonage Daydream.

48 The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

I like this song, but I do think it's overrated. - funnyuser

This song ruined my childhood because when I was 9 I heard the part of the song that says" I met a really nice girl had some really nice sex"

It's good and overrated

49 Grenade - Bruno Mars Grenade - Bruno Mars

Pretty overrated song, although there is a band called R5 that stole this song's intro and used it in one of their songs. It's called (I Can't) Forget About You. I don't like this song, but Mars should have sued them for however much money they made off of that song. - therootbeer

It might not be the best of Bruno Mars but not overrated! It is quite nice to listen.

That's his best song, if anything Talking to the moon should be here. - LukeTargaryen

Someone hand him a grenade already so we can all get some piece.

50 Blank Space - Taylor Swift Blank Space - Taylor Swift

I remember back in November through February when I heard this getting played on the radio every 30 minutes. I had to change the station every time it came on.

Overrated! Overrated singer! Overrated music video! - xXLittleQueensXx

Yes! So over rated! This is the song that made me start hating taylor swift!

This song is so overrated and I hate it.

51 Watch Me - Silento Watch Me - Silento

Now watch me whip? Now watch me Nae Nae? Its like a conversation between a horse and its rider. The rider says to watch him whip and then the horse says to watch him Nae Nae.

Just too much for this craze

This should be on 1 - mayamanga

I do not le this song whenever I tried listening to good music it put this and everyone starts whipping Ugh

52 Ur So Gay - Katy Perry Ur So Gay - Katy Perry

A song that promotes transphobia and homophobia. I don't care if this was a "joke," it's equivalent to tasteless, racist jokes shouted by an angry bigot

Katy Perry is super racist. "your So Gay", that's a bad thing, that's like rudely saying someone is so homosexual.

Only now have I heard of this. I hate homophobia

It's not overrated, I have never even heard of it until now.
Just because something has something rude in it dosen't mean it "promotes" homophobia, and the joke is making fun of the use of "gay" as an insult. Not a jab at homosexuals (or transsexuals, don't know how it was "transphobia").

53 Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin

I am utterly spalttergasted that this is here. do people even listen to bobby darin?

54 E.T. - Katy Perry E.T. - Katy Perry
55 Cheerleader - Omi Cheerleader - Omi

This deserves to be in the top ten. The singer has one of the most annoying voices ever, and the lyrics are lackluster. The only good thing about this song is the beat, and that doesn't really help its case much.

So boring! I don't even know how this hit number 1!

56 Disturbia - Rihanna Disturbia - Rihanna V 1 Comment
57 Gentleman - PSY

When I saw Gangnam Style, I thought, pretty good. Don't see where PSY could go wrong. Then I saw this, and thought, yeah, he's lost it. - PositronWildhawk

He later made Hangover and it's much worse! Not saying this song is good. - SelfDestruct

You all think Gangnam Style is overrated; what about this?!?!

58 You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban

NOO! This song is amazing!

59 Ironic - Alanis Morissette Ironic - Alanis Morissette

Not ironic, more so coincidence. Honestly, overrated song by Alanis Morissette. Also really overdone on my local radio station (alongside To The Moon & Back by Savage Garden) which furthered my dislike of the song.
If anyone knows where To The Moon And Back is, tell me.

Not ironic, not good.

60 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence 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

This song is good, but it will never be as much of a masterpiece as My Immortal.

I hate the piercing, forced screaming voice of the fat emo who sings this.
I can not even take this band serious. All songs sound the same and have pretty much the same lyrics.
But hey, emo teens don't demand high standards, huh?

Never understood how anyone could like this song.
It's absolutely overrated. Sounds like an Avril Lavigne song.
