Top 10 Most Overhated Bands
The Top Ten
There over-hated to the max
Why do people hate these guys again? I mean, they're not god's gift to rock, but they're certainly not the musical antichrist people think they are. - Nickelstickman
I don't know much about this band nor do I care to look into them considering all the crap they get. Only song I know from them is Savin Me, and I like that song, I'll admit. Don't shoot me. - Mcgillacuddy
They aren't my cup of tea either but Hinder or 3 Doors Down is worse.V 4 Comments
Linkin Park are honestly both overrated and overhated. Many take their love for LP WAAY too far saying they're the best band in the entire world, but haters take their hate too far by saying they're the worst band and they're talentless and put them #1 on the worst music artists remix and CHester on the worst singers of all time remix even though they're are worse artists out there. Now this doesn't apply to every lover and hater, but those who take LP too far. - TheDarkOne_221b
No, they are not overhated in any way. Every emo and weeaboo on the planet worships this band as the second coming of Jesus Christ. Want proof? Look at all the AMV's that feature Linkin Park's music in them. There is even a meme surrounding it all called "Linkin Ball Z". Both this band and its fans are incredibly cringe-worthy. I wish for anyone that likes this band to stop listening to them and grow up.
They're overrated but they don't deserve the hate. - Userguy44
Eh Nickelback's more overhated to be honest.V 1 Comment
To be honest their not the best metal band I've listened to but their far from the worst metal band I've listened to.
Yeah don't deserve the hate. They aren't the worst out there. - Zizz
Not the best or worst - EliHbk
I like Some Songs From This Band (Click Click Boom Doperide Your Disease And Always - christangrant
I've heard worse. - Croy987
I'll admit that they aren't the greatest band on the planet but they have plenty of good songs. I think they're underrated.
Creed may not be the greatest band to have ever existed but the musicans are talented why? Because the members went on to form Alter Bridge a band which was much more musically advanced and better than Creed however Creed isn't bad, The musicans are also good people especially Scott Stapp who is very nice to his fans and he started a foundation that raised millions of dollars to help children and familes in need so say that Creed is terrible band all you want but the musicans are good people. - christangrant
Fred durst is the only one that deserves the h8
Their hate is much deserved.
I understand that band isn't getting back together anytime soon (Sorry for rubbing salt in the wound). The only reason why I can think of is why their hated is because this band is considered emo. Still though their a decent band Black Veil Brides being worse though.
People freak out when I say I like My Chemical Romance because apparently they are emo. - mmarce445
"ooh its emo you're emo"-literally everyone
I've seen several online pictures of being comparing this band to Staind for which one's more worse. Honestly their not the best post-grunge band out there but they aren't as bad as people make them out to be.
By the way, TOD's image and this band's image is same? - zxm
I don't know there the same to be honest same with the description uncertain why.
Even though it is justified to hate them, they are irrelevant for a few years and some people still like to create various hate jokes about them. They are often called the worst band ever, which is an exaggeration. - Alkadikce
Worst band of all time? I can tell you 4 worse bands quickly. "ok what are they? " is what you're gonna ask.
Well in that case:
Blood on the Dance Floor
are worse than this band.
At least One Direction does not use profanity or hurtful lyrics. And their songs are not the same line/word over and over and over. - Bammer73
Eh kind of but there hate is deserved.
No I think they get just the right amount of hate - McgillacuddyV 1 Comment
These comments prove the point. Avenged Sevenfold is overhated. - yungstirjoey666
No, they are rip offs. - Userguy44
There is no proof that A7X ripped of Overkill's logo. If two pictures would be same, then I'd say Overkill ripped off old pirates logos. - zxm
Their logo looks too similar to Overkill's and they shamelessly rip off Metallica their hate is much DESERVED.
They deserve their hate their logo is a ripoff of Overkill's logo and further more "The Hail to the King" album is a rip off of the "Black" album by Metallica.V 1 Comment
Their first 4 albums are absolute masterpieces. I'm not a huge fan of their current music, but come on. It takes a hell of a lot of talent in order to keep scoring hits in the past almost 20 years.
Come on they're the best band ever they shouldn't even need to be on this list let alone being this low
I will admit for about the last 10 years they have not been at their best but parachutes is one of my favorite albums of all time, and arobtth is pretty great too. Their next two albums are pretty good too..
I don't get all the hate.
They're completely not offensive. Their first 4 albums are very good...why the hate?V 1 Comment
Eh kind of but there hate is deserved they do RIP OFF and PLAGARIZE songs. Don't believe me? Then go to Metal Treasure's "Songs Led Zeppelin ripped off" list.
Yes, but there are bands who ripped of their original songs too. - zxm
Mmarce445 oh, shut up!
But almost everyone likes Led Zeppelin... - Nickelstickman
They suck - mmarce445V 4 Comments
They're a very influential hard rock band, yet everyone insults them.
They are the most Overhated music artist in existence they make awesome music yet it seems they always get hate even though they did nothing to deserve it - christangrant
I think that the more you listen to them, the less you hate them!
Yeah, yeah! You all hate AC/DC for sounding the same! That doesn't matter, the thing that matters is if the song has good quality, good lyrics and good vocals! NO-ONE UNDERSTANDS!V 3 Comments
Nah, they are UNDER-hated if anything. - benhos
Why do you say that? Part of their proceeds goes towards a cancer research foundation. They are literally saving lives with their music. - Nerdy_Demon
Every time somebody mentions RHCP in the Internet he will get replies like:
"Red Hot Chili Peppers can go to hell if you ask me"
"Imagine Red Hot Chili Peppers songs wouldn't have any music at all! It would be heaven! " - Alkadikce
While not as good as The All American Rejects their still better than garbage called Mayday Parade!
Nu metal counts as real metal - yungstirjoey666
Not a fan of them either but some metal etlists overhated on them due them supposedly not being "Real metal". There is no real or fake metal, metal's just metal.
They are just as over hated as any nu metal band. - Metaladethaxer
Psychosocial is a metal song, the riff and solo are 'classically based' - SoldierOfFortuneV 2 Comments
They're hated for a lot of reasons.
1. St. Anger
2. Dave Mustaine left Metallica.
3. Metallica fans thinks that everything after MOP is bad
4. There are a lot of metal haters
5. Metallica are overrated
6. They sold out
7. Lars Ulrich
8. Megadeth fans who think Metallica sucks
And more... - Userguy44
Metallica's well loved last I recalled not overhated nice try.
Metallica's not overhated. Even Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett don't get the hate for being overrated. - zxm
Everyone loves Metallica! - TwilightKitsuneV 2 Comments
While most of their songs were hit and miss they were still tolerable.
I don’t care for anything else from them, but I like “The Reason”. - 3DG20
Yes, but tney didn't influence The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple or Pink Floyd?
They are overhated. They have influenced every band there is and they're better than AC/DC and Guns'N'Roses combined.
They’ve inspired a lot of great music, but the sheer amount of cheap merch they’ve flogged over the years, their treatment of Peter Criss and Gene Simmons’s ego I think justifies the hate.
They're not overhated. Absolutely speaking, they're fairly rated and in relative numbers, they're overrated.
I do think they made good music, no question, but for some reason they seem to be the only 70s band still popular today, while bands like Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd, who were also very popular as well as extremely innovative at the time, seem to get no love. It seems to me like 13 year olds who think they figured out music like to claim they were like the most innovative band of all time because it's the only 20th century band they know, ignoring groups like The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, etc. A lot of them actually try to justify themselves by saying they also like The Beatles, which I think is really weird 'cause if it were true they should realize there are much greater bands out there. Also, liking The Beatles doesn't make Queen any better. Again, they did make decent music, and maybe there is some amazing stuff hiding on the lesser known albums and b-sides I don't know, ...more
But why do people hate it so much.
Not overhated at all. - Userguy44
Queen? Overhated? Am I missing something? - 3DG20V 5 Comments
Their honestly not the worst pop-punk band out there.
To been honest they are pretty mature for been Pop punk/Alt rock
I don't get the hate for this band admittedly they aren't the most unique 2000's band but are they really as bad as people say? No.
I generally don't like this band but I've heard worse to be honest.
Their hate is well deserved... they aren't the saviors of metal music people make them out to be same with A7X.
They Don't Deserve The Hate
Because They Do Have Good Songs
Ex Sricken They Are Also Great At Doing Covers Land Of Confusion Sound of Silence - christangrant
They're not fake; they work just as much as most power metal bands. And they have more songs than just Through the Fire and the Flames. - yungstirjoey666
I'm a huge dragonforce fan but I'll admit their sound is not for everyone. Some people find them way too over the top, and it's okay to not like them. But they get way too much hate. - wizardlarry
I don't understand why they are hated they are an amazing band and Herman Li is a guitar god
"Pretentious oversynthed and too artsy to be rock" Dumb argument by critics. They're amazing. Hated for making music musical.
To be honest I don't hate this band in fact I used to be a big lover of them however as I grew up I started to listen to other bands that were more complex than Nirvana and to be honest better than them which when I look back at nirvana they aren't as good as I remember them to be but that's just me they aren't bad but it gets annoying seeing them number 1 on so many lists especially lists about the 90s because I have heard much better but if you like them that's fine but they are overrated the 2nd most Overrated band in history in my opinion behind Led Zeppelin - christangrant
Uh, they get more praise than hate - TheDarkOne_221b
I don't get why loads of people hate Guns N Roses I mean sure their last two albums were bad but they so have loads of good songs as well but I don't see what makes them one of the worst rock bands ever ill admit they are overrated but they are also Overhated - christangrant
Yes, I agree with that guy, why does everybody hate GN'R so much? Their newest songs might be horrible, but guys, dig harder and you'll find some good GN'R songs!
Ok, they say Axl is a douchebag but I don't blame him for growing up in a violent environment!
I went to a U2 concert. It was awesome. They're too overhated. - Userguy44
Sure their attire can get weird and their lyrics can be a bit emo-like, and don't even get me started with the fanbase, but they got some lit songs too, such as Heart on Fire and Goodbye Agony. They don't count as real metal, but I'll give them credit for being the first band to get me into actual metal music. Andy is a decent vocalist, although I do admit that he's mostly generic and perhaps the least talented of the group, but Jake Pitts and Jinxx are great guitarists. They're obviously far from being the best band in existence, but they get a little too much hate than they deserve.
No, I'm not like those depressive emos who think that self harm is cool and all. I despise them. I'm more into legendary metal bands such as Iron Maiden and Megadeth. I just happen to not be so strict when it comes to music. - yungstirjoey666
I've added them here for a reason. They aren't a rock band but they are on top of every worst rock band list. - zxm
More like underhated. - Userguy44
Their hate is very deserved.
