Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

TheGreatest

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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?!?!

62 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.

63 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

64 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan

Probaly slightly overrated, not the greatest song of all time, but up there - RecklessGreed

65 Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis

I said when I commented on "Wonderwall" that both of these songs are overrated. Liam and Noel showed their talent in songs such as "Supersonic", "Fade In-Out" and "Some Might Say", but not in this or in "Wonderwall", and everyone else believes the opposite. What the hell is wrong with them?!
If you disagree with me, get a hearing aid, or check whether or not you had a concussion last time you were hit in the head, and listen to these songs AGAIN! And if you still disagree, your iPod probably doesn't work; or you've got permanent scars.

66 Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
67 Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin

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

68 Champagne Supernova - Oasis

Michael jackson can't be in this list

I just can't stand his voice

69 We are Young - Glee

Now, fun. fans, don't get mad at me before you listen what I have to say. fun. is one of my favorite bands, and this is the version by Glee. It is very sad the fun. version only rose to popularity because of Glee. They are an amazing band, but Glee is horrible. I want this band to be popular, but not because of glee.

What? No. It's unfair. If we made the case every place here should be filled up with Glee. They're so annoying it's just unfair for everyone else who wants to be overrated

Agreed with the previous comment. It's pretty sad that Fun is only popular because of a crappy show. If Glee had only one fan, it'd still be overrated.

70 Stayin' Alive - The Bee Gees
71 Headlines - Drake
72 Last Resort - Papa Roach

Papa roach sucks - VideoGamefan5

73 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

74 Hotline Bling - Drake

So Agree, Drake is repeating that same line over and over again, Every day, someone plays this garbage where I can hear it. SO, SO ANNOYING! - blst0033

Every online critic not on YouTube has put this in their top 10 for 2015. I call bull, this is terrible. Should be top 20 on this list. - WonkeyDude98

I hate that song. Repetitive lyrics, non tempo, he can't coordinate with the melody (Which by the way is stupid)

75 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.

76 Master of Puppets - Metallica

No, this song isn't even overrated. You want an overrated Metallica song? Look at Enter Sandman or Nothing Else Matters. Master of Puppets is by far the best Metallica song and the best metal song of the 1980s, period, end of discussion.

I like a lot of Metallica songs but this one sucks and is easily my least favorite. The chorus is so so bad

Another kickass song by Metallica! I love this song!

77 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.

This song should be #1. - railfan99

78 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

79 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

Yeah, yeah I know that they broke up in March, but This song is overrated. That song AND album is the only reason why everybody know this band. No offense to everybody who likes this band but, the lyrics are kinda cheesy.

The Fact That This Is Not In The Top 2 Is Absolutely Horrific - Du

Agree completely. Overly Praised, overly played

Should Be Number One - Du

80 You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift

She's so damn whiny! - mayamanga

Who wants to listen to this piece of junk where Taylor underrates herself and talks about how another girl is better and prettier and actually expects to get the guy?
It is not an 'inspiration' or breaking the popular girls' hearts or something! But it is breaking my ears!

Taylor, this song sucks! Why did you have to write it? You could do so much better! Especially because Tay wears high heels and skirts! Like, is the 'she' Taylor?

The lyrics are messed up! IF SHE WANTS A boyfriend SHE SHOULD SAY

I wear high heels
SHE wears sneakers
I"m cheer captain
And SHE'S on the bleachers!

And one last thing...
She's kinda badmouthing cheerleaders who like skirts and heels and saying other girls are better. Who does that?
