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. - BoredJeff02

I like this band along with Theory of a Deadman and Creed and they are very overhated - christangrant

3 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

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. - BoredJeff02

Honestly, this is an emo band I can actually enjoy. Quite creative and need I say it, not a bad band at all. - cjWriter1997

They were one of the most hated bands of the 2000s. Back then, if you liked the band, people would make fun of you. It's sad that these days they are getting more appreciation than in their prime-time. The Black Parade is one of the best albums of the 2000s and their best work to date. - gothictomboy66

People freak out when I say I like My Chemical Romance because apparently they are emo. - mmarce445

4 Creed Creed Creed is an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consists of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

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

7 Theory Of A Deadman Theory Of A Deadman Theory of a Deadman is a rock band from Delta, British Columbia, Canada. Formed in 2001, the band is currently signed to Roadrunner Records as well as 604 Records.

By the way, TOD's image and this band's image is same? - zxm

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. - BoredJeff02

They are just as over hated as any nu metal band. - Metaladethaxer

@BoredJeff02 I completely agree with you. How the hell is Slipknot not metal?! - NikBrusk

I listen to Symphonic Metal, Technical Death Metal, some Black Metal, and Grindcore and I think that Slipknot are real metal.

I don't get why people say these guys are "faek metl"

edit: ok so now im actually not sure if these guys are metal or not the internet has confused me - wrests

Metallica's not overhated. Even Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett don't get the hate for being overrated. - zxm

Everyone loves Metallica! - TwilightKitsune

Metallica is actually very overhated mainly because of two kinds of people:
1. Biased metal haters who hate on this band just because they are the most popular one
2. Ignorant Megadeth fans who think Dave Mustaine wrote all of Metallica's "best" songs and say that Metallica has been crap ever since the Black Album and that they sold out and Megadeth never got bad even though Its arguable that Risk and Super Collider were very bad. - christangrant
