A7X is a good band. talented one. But I think I can handle their criticisms. Well many people don't like them because of their appearances. Though its not a reason to hate a band but still I am OK with it. I am also ready to admit that they are little bit of overrated. - zxm

I personally think Deadmau5 is a bit overrated cause he gets too much recognition. But that doesn't mean he's bad. He's quite fun. 9/10 - AlphaQ

So overrated. I can name 10 different electronic artists far better than him - Teravolt1422

He's not even in the top 5 for electronic music artists. Consistently average compared to artists of the same genre, yet he gets the most attention.

But in the end, he's not bad. - SwagFlicks

I have literally not heard of this girl outside of this website and her Wikipedia article. - Swellow

OK, listened to one of her songs. It was great, but even if her music appeals to an older audience, I still find it hard to believe the people who are long-time fans of older music are also fans of her. She's still a very modern singer. - Swellow

Music not intended for children.

Okay, I'm one of the " grown-ups " but her music style is crap. I was raised on Rock ( The Who, MC5, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath etc... ) and I'm still listening to Rock. It's not because you're growing older that you suddenly switch into her style of music. Never heard of her outside the many lists on the TTT. Did a try to see what's all the fuss about her... and I don't get it. How come she's so overrated on the TTT sites? She's not that great ( for young and for old audiences ).
