Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

TheGreatest

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 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

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

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.

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

43 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

How are some of Katy's more underrated songs( Not including her big hits) more overrated than Shake It Off? This song is extremely overrated.

44 Rolling in the Deep - Adele

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.

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

45 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.

Do you ever feel like you're choked by plastic bags? Yes after this sing. - AlphaQ

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 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

49 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 like this song.

I hate this song.

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.

Thriller is great but MJ and this song are both overrated. - AlphaQ

51 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.

52 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

53 Happy - Pharrell Williams

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.

Because I'm crappy! (Clap along if you feel this song is overplayed)

Almost everyone that I know loves this. I hate it. So overplayed! - RiverClanRocks

I Rather Play Sonic 06 Than Listen To This Piece Of $h! t - VideoGamefan5

54 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!

I love this song but it's very overrated. Even more overrated than whip/nae nae(which is a song that sucks) - HollyleafOfThunderClan

55 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.

Crank That is overhated for sure. This is even WORSE and less hated. I'm confused right now...This song deserves to be hated the most. - AlphaQ

Why do people like this song? It is overrated because this song is so bad it doesn't deserve a rating above.5/10 - christangrant

This is 40? This should be #2 - HollyleafOfThunderClan

56 Starboy - The Weeknd

Most overrated song of 2016 - Organ

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

garbage - VideoGamefan5

57 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.

58 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

I actually kind of agree with this. It's really good but I do think it's overrated.

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

This is more overrated than let it go

59 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

This is not homophobic. Gay means happy, stupud butthurt people. - AlphaQ

60 Born This Way - Lady Gaga

It's my favorite song. So inspiring to overcome obstacles and find your way home.

This is good - mayamanga

It might be my biased opinion, but this song isn't really that overrated. It has really great, inspiring lyrics, and I really like that it supports gay rights.

So, in my opinion, this song isn't overrated. It's not underrated either, but not overrated.

As for Bad Romance, yeah, that's Gaga's overrated song.
