Top 10 Most Overhated Music ArtistsMartin_Canine
The Top Ten
Yes, "Baby" was terrible. Yes, both "My World" albums were terrible. Yes, this christmas album was terrible. And yes, he was overhyped. Thing is: no one would hate the stuff he does now if the songs he sang before puberty voice change were not widely released and got much airplay. If "Believe" or "Purpose" was released as his first major label album while "My World" and "My World 2.0" were YouTube-only releases, people would think that he does at least solid to very good catchy pop music. Some would dislike him, but certainly not hate him. - Martin_Canine
Baby is a great song - DylanRob
Nickelback make good and fun rock music and are only hated in the US. The songs sound similar yet not the same, and to be honest: many critically acclaimed bands have songs that sound alike.
Nickelback are not the greatest band ever. But they are not bad. They play pretty good, Kroeger's voice is pleasantly raw, the songs are catchy. The lyrics are not terrible. They are simple, but they have nothing that is garbage. Personally, I think people hate them because they expect rock music to be something daring, and Nickelback aren't. They are there to please the ones that like the sound of rock, not necessarily its spirit. - Martin_Canine
Nickelback is a pretty good rock band. They aren't as good compared to other bands but I don't think they deserve all the hate they get.
@Martin_Canine - this is the most objective and correct description of Nickelback I've read on this site. I agree they are overhated, especially on the TopTens. - Metal_Treasure
There's way worse crimes to music out there, people! - Entranced98
We all agree "Friday" is a mess of a song. Stupidest lyrics, and terrible line delivery. But please: time passed. She was young when she recorded this and she did not write the lyrics. Do yourself a favor and search her official YouTube channel, listen to a few of her songs and covers, and I'm sure you will like her voice. Personally, I think she saw the offer to sing "Friday" as her big chance to make it big in the pop business. She was too young to realise the lyrics are bad. And propably she was told to sing like this because the producer wanted to create a viral hit. Anyways, Rebecca Black CAN sing, and she is pretty good. - Martin_Canine
She actually sings well. Only hating her for Friday is plain stupidity. I liked "Saturday" and "My Moment"... Her voice actually isn't so nasal.
You see, Lil Wayne wouldn't be half as hated if people, including fans, Rolling Stone and himself, wouldn't frequently exaggarate about his rapping skills so much. He is not the "Best Rapper Alive", even if Rolling Stone said so in their the Carter III review - by the way that's an album I really like. Wayne's vocal delivery is bat sh insane, and that's why I like it, and his word play is just mad. But seriously he is NOT THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE! If we're talking American rappers there are Lupe Fiasco, Eminem, Tech N9ne, as well as severa big names of the 80s and 90s that are still alive. And he is also NOT THE WORST! Listen to Soulja Boy first and then to a Lil Wayne song. Or better yet: listen to "Trigger Finger" that has both rappers on it. You'll see how Wayne is miles away from the bottom of the barrel. I hate that people exaggarate in both ways. I really like Wayne's music yet I know that he is a limited rapper yet also has his qualities that you may like or not, this is just ...more - Martin_Canine
Listen to the following songs: "Grand Piano", "Marilyn Monroe", "All Things Go", "Dear Old Nicki", "Bed of Lies".
And don't see her as a rapper, but as a pop artist. And as such, she is pretty fun. I like how she plays with her vocals, her use of different personas and her aggressive nature when it comes to competing with her male label mates. - Martin_Canine
