The Contenders: Page 3

41 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

Maybe once Robin Thicke hits puberty this song will be okay. Probably not. Also, who was dumb enough to put Smells Like Teen Spirit, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine, and Bohemian Rhapsody on here? - chris.cg.102

Most popular song of 2013 is so annoying and there are better songs this year.

I still don't understand how a song that took 30 minutes to make got so popular. The song is a plague.

My mom does not let me listen to this song - mayamanga

42 Bennie and the Jets - Elton John

Elton John is overrated by so many old people it's not funny. - NuMetalManiak

43 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Number 10 on Best Songs Of All Time? If that isn't evidence that Eminem is overrated, I don't know what is! - yaygiants16

This song is amazing - harr4

This song is overrated. And that means something's considering I'm an eminem fan. Seriously, not afraid and kings never die are 10x better than this

It's good but it is no Rakim really or even Amoc

44 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

45 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

This is a ripoff of two songs - christangrant

46 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

47 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

48 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

I love System of a Down. They are true musical geniuses. However, everyone thinks that this is their best work. Although the song is good and the ending is brilliant, it really isn't great. It doesn't really fit in with their group. I can think of 10 songs by System of a Down that I would rather listen to then this one. - Potato1029

I don't see why people like this song in the first place. It's just shouting and soft singing combined. - Songsta41

This song is really overrated.

10 System Of A Down songs better than this :
Deer Dance
Sugar
Spiders
Suite-Pee
DDevil
Hypnotize
Violent Pornography
F**k The System
Bounce
Toxicity - Disturbedpotato

49 Yeah! - Usher

It is just an cliche and borig song.

I think any song by this jerk is overrated. ^^

50 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?

Sorry, but I prefer the Social Distortion one

51 Jump - Van Halen
52 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

53 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.

54 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

55 We Belong Together - Mariah Carey

How Can This Be On This List? -_-

56 Burn It Down - Linkin Park

This is pure cancer. - AlphaQ

Why is this considered one of their best? it's not - christangrant

57 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

While Stairways to Haven is torture and kills people, Kashmir brings the bleach sales up. - AlphaQ

58 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

It was either this or closer but this is considered good more often than closer so this is why its on my list - christangrant

Yuk.

Ew, ebola. - Disturbedpotato

59 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

60 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
