Top Ten Most Overrated Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Somebody that I Used to Know - Gotye

Seriously? This song is much better than all the meaningless Nicki Minaj and
One Direction songs that get much more attention than they deserve...

What?! It's certainly not overrated. This is 100 times better than justin beiber or taylor swift, aka the most overplayed song artists ever. - Napstablook

I Like This song my mom loves it. Way better than Everything at Once

42 Heart Attack - Demi Lovato

I get a heart attack just from hearing this piece of junk

Just about any Demi Lovato song is overrated if its rated at all.

I hate this song.

I like this song.

43 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.

44 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.

45 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

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

I don't like Cold Play, but for this, X&Y, Talk, Clocks and Fix You, I make an exception.

Coldplay are a great band, but this isn't their best song.

Lol calling Coldplay a "rock" band. Cut me with that edge

46 Yeah! - Usher V 2 Comments
47 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?

48 Jump - Van Halen
49 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!

Bangerz as a whole is just pretty much garbage but overhated too. I mean Mike WiLL Made It anyways so...I'm speechless. I never thought I could defend anything by this clown named Mike WiLL Made It. - AlphaQ

50 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.

51 We Belong Together - Mariah Carey

How Can This Be On This List? -_-

52 Burn It Down - Linkin Park
53 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

Stairway to Heaven may be overrated, (still one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs) but Kashmir is the opposite! It has a catchy rhythm to it! - MontyPython

54 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

55 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.

56 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").

57 Starboy - The Weeknd

It's not all that great, granted it's better than most of TheWeeknd's songs but it's not the best of this year. - Grunger92

58 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.

59 E.T. - Katy Perry
60 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!
