Top Ten Most Overrated Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 E.T. - Katy Perry
62 Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots
63 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.

I used to like this song, but after a while I grew up. First of all, the autotune is absolutely heavy. Second of all, the beat is just your average pop song beat. - HollyleafOfThunderClan

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

64 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


65 Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin

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

66 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N Roses

Overrated and overused. I hear this song from the radio almost everyday. I mean; this song is only composed of 3 chords and Slash admitted he was clowning around when this song was created. In other words, this song is a joke from the start. Listen to something else for a change. - aeromaxx777

This was #6 on list of best songs of all time on this site. It's a cool riff and it's kinda catchy but SIX all time? It's not even the 6th best Guns N' Roses song, and Guns N' Roses are overrated to begin with. Everything bad about 80s rock is here: hair metal, Robert Plant-wannabe-vocals, repetitive riffs, and lame power ballad vocals.

I like the intro but the words and voice is just rubbish, stairway to heaven is not overrated, which one of you idiots made this list

Carry on my wayward child is the only song I like from the 80's

67 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?!?!

68 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan

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

69 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.

70 Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
71 American Idiot - Green Day

This song is amazing! I hate people!

Great song. Love it.

72 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.

73 Champagne Supernova - Oasis

Michael jackson can't be in this list

I just can't stand his voice

74 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.

75 Stayin' Alive - The Bee Gees
76 Headlines - Drake
77 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)

78 Last Resort - Papa Roach

Papa roach sucks - VideoGamefan5

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 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.
