Top 10 Most Overhated Music Artists
The Top Ten
How could you not agree that he's the number one?
Of course, we can all agree on one condition. Baby and One Time are horrible songs. In fact, I'm still considering them having them on my Worst Songs of All Time remix. One Less Lonely Girl and a few other songs are also pretty terrible.
But of course, the haters just listened to those few songs, while ignoring songs he's made that are actually decent, such as Love Yourself. It literally gets played on the radio! Either the haters don't listen to the radio, or they have no idea it's by Justin Bieber.
Deal with it, 2009 and 2010 are long gone now. Can you stop focusing on the obvious? - Bammer73
I don't like him, but he's miles away from being the worst music artist. I mean, at least his songs are listenable. - RiverVibeZ
He is overhated
People just hate him for breathing.
People think he is a reptile.
He's not even that bad
Artists nowadays only talk about butts
Before puberty he actually sang about love
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 definitely NOT a great rock band. However, they're not the worst. Limp Bizkit and Creed both exist, you know. Their song "Feed the Machine" is much better than their usual nonsense and sounds awesome. - DCfnaf
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.
Hating Nickelback because of 1 troll on a website? SAD! - MetalWorldOrder
And of course, they get called out as worst band of all time. Even when they're long gone, they still get picked on.
Yeah, I know, they can be pretty annoying sometimes, and they aren't exactly original with the BEGINNINGS, but they may have not even known. They're in their 20s, not their 50s. Those songs are way before them.
Best Song Ever's hate is also a problem. Yeah, it's nowhere near the best song ever. But just because the title is "clickbaiting" doesn't make it the worst song ever.
Overreacting... of course that's a problem, too. - Bammer73
They split up years ago. Yes, they sucked but hardly anyone cares about them anymore. Get over it. - RiverVibeZ
As a directioner, yeah I think they're overhated! They're hated because they're a boy band! Honestly I don't get it and honestly their songs are really good and surprisingly super relatable
You realize comparing them to The Beatles is a ridiculous comparison, right? Comparing a below average boy band to THE BEATLES is nonsensical in every way. Anyways, these guys are not very good, but they're not unlistenable. Plus, Harry Styles' solo career is phenomenal. - DCfnaf
We can all hate on Friday (ironic how this was posted on a Friday night), but what's wrong with her other songs?
At least when people who have listened to more than 5 Jacob Sartorius songs and still hate him, they sometimes state reasons, even though they're quite minimal. Rebecca Black, however? Her hate is coming simply because of her identity being Rebecca Black! That's just stupid. - Bammer73
No doubt she sings horrible, but she didn't even write the lyrics to Friday. - Luckys
She actually has a good voice, you're just judging off of friday and her earlier songs. - 0w0uwu
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 is the most underrated teen singer of all time. Friday is way too hideous but that wasn't her fault. It was Patrice Wilson who ruined her life. In fact,Rebecca herself hates that song. - Hellohi
They're way more praised than hated. - AlphaQ
Linkin Park is gay!
They barely get any hate here. - RiverVibeZ
I hate these types of trends that "one started autotune, one has to be hated for bringing all of these talentless hacks in".
How the hell do you think she knew this would happen in the future? Plus, when you don't consider the autotune crap, you can actually enjoy some of her songs (other than Pity Girls, of course). - Bammer73
Decent pop artist. Her voice is weak and she probably used autotune, but most of her songs are pretty good. - RiverVibeZ
They are a joke band for crying out loud. And even then, their music isn't even that bad. I'm not even kidding when I say that Hitler Was A Sensitive Man is unironically good. - DarkBoi-X
If you hate this elite band, you factually have a bad taste in music. - Userguy44
Great band. - RadioHead03
Actually, a very talented singer. Her outfits may be weird but they don't affect her music in any way. Learn to differentiate an artist from their music, jesus christ. - RiverVibeZ
EXTREMELY overhated. She gets hate for her outfit choices, weird stage persona, and autotune. Um...first of all, she can SING. Second of all, her outfit choices do not make her a bad SINGER or ARTIST. - DCfnaf
I don't really get why she's hated. I mean I'm not her fan but at least she can sing and she's nowhere near as bad as Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj.
I don't get why people hate her so much.I love Lady Gaga and her music.She's a great artist and person.
Oh yes, Jacob Sartorius. The hate he gets is so annoying.
So Jacob may not be a "typical" autotune user, but when you're searching up his songs without autotune, those are clearly clickbait. HOW DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THAT?
And you've only heard Sweatshirt, Hit or Miss, Jordans, Bingo and Better With You - probably only 2 or 3 of those! Listen to me, bring more thought than the autotune. Actually consider the lyrics themselves.
If you don't like them either, then listen to Curfew, No Music, Problems, Said No One Ever, All My Friends, Up With It and basically anything other than the 5 songs I named in the other paragraph. - Bammer73
He's just some dumb kid who has no talent. Can't y'all just ignore him? - RiverVibeZ
Over hated by ignorant people sadly because they were very talented members. - Soulstealer
The average hater only knows what roughly 1 or 2 of their songs are. Listen to Demons, Warriors, It's Time, etc. as well.
MetalWorldOrder is a great example of this. He's only heard Believer and Thunder and hates them because of overplay, which is nothing bad.
Yeah, Believer is kinda annoying, but it proves Dan Reynolds cam scream good. Yeah, Thunder is extremely repetitive, but it actually a positive message. Listen closely to the end, it encourages you to never give up on your dreams.
That being said, they have hard beats that sound different every time and same with lyrics. Stop being so picky. - Bammer73
Can I be honest here. As a person who doesn’t really like Imagine Dragons, I actually kinda think they get hated a lot. Sure they’re music is not the best, but there are other bands out there that make terrible music. - RadioHead03
If people hate them for a good reason, that’s fine. If people hate it for VERY minor reasons ( ex. they’re ugly, his voice is bad, etc etc. ), then we’ve got a problem. Other than that, they’re pretty nice. - IceFoxPlayz
People call her the worst female rapper, which I disagree with. She is not worse than Cardi B by any mile. - Soulstealer
She's not that awful, especially when compared to Cardi B or Iggy Azalea. - RiverVibeZ
She's hated so much. People hate her so much and they've only heard Anaconda and Stupid hoe. - Luckys
Literally nearly as hated as Justin Bieber. She not a good rapper but she's alright as a pop artist. - AlphaQ
I see why people might find them boring and overrated, but they are far from the worst music artists. They even have memorable songs. - Userguy44
How the hell the band that realized amazing albums as War and Achtung Baby and another album called The Joshua Tree... could be treaten as one of the worst rock bands of all time? - Pato_cargo
They are UNDER-hated if anything. - Joeljohns249
Get her higher. The hate is also quite ridiculous. Breakup may have been the meanings of a few of her songs, but so many other songs are about breakup. There's no reason to target ONE artist and spare the rest.
Another joke artist. Yes, his music is pretty bad but I can think of much worse. - DarkBoi-X
People should stop giving artists with less than a thousand views any attention. - Hellohi
He's literally meant to be terrible, so I don't know why a certain user on multiple accounts who shall not be named always submits him to every single list. - DaWyteNight
Do you people not understand Lil Meerkat is a joke rapper? And yes, he sounds stupid at first, but listen again and you'll be cracking up.
Also, being a cover or parody does not make a song bad no matter what. Listen to Infinite Bodypillows.
Nobody even cares or knows about him! Go off this site, and find anyone who can sing a Lil Meerkat song. If they can, ask of they use this site. The chances of them saying yes then no are 0.000001%. - Bammer73
Well he kinda deserves it, he's one of the rappers who has contributed heavily to the dumbing down of hip hop, and he also used ghostwriters and has some pretty terrible lyrics. Let's not also forget that this man brought us the abominations Nicki Minaj and lame corny Drake! He also brought autotune to hip hop, and most of the garbage rappers of today see him as their biggest inspiration. He's only overhated on this site, but everywhere else people are calling him one of the greats which he isn't.
Not the worst rapper, but his lyrics suck most of the time.
Not good but there are way worse rappers.
He's not a great rapper, but not the worst either. Soulja Boy, Tyga, Future, and Rae Sremmurd exist.
When I hear people saying they hate Limp Bizkit, they never really say anything about the music itself.
It's either that they hate Nu Metal as a whole, that they think Fred Durst is a jerk or that they are posers.
When people hate on Nickelback they at least say things like "all of their songs sound the same", "their songs are annoying" or "they hsve dumb lyrics" - all of which I don't think is true. But Limp Bizkit sometimes seem to get hate simply for being Limp Bizkit.
And like many other artists on this list, they mostly get hate in the US. - Martin_Canine
These guys are at 34th place?
In my opinion, these guys deserve to be higher (possibly top 5)
Most people hate them because of Fred Durst.
please find better reasons for hating these guys ok thank you - wrests
Is he bland? Yeah, but so many other modern rappers are. At least his songs have meanings hidden in them, for example God's Plan is about God and his future for Drake.
Overrated does not mean bad, either. People complain about several songs of his being number one hits, but other artists who have this criteria get spared.
If you'll be complaining about these criteria, there are so many artists that meet them too! Why only hate on Drake? - Bammer73
Um no. He's one of the most mediocre, cocky, useless lame rappers in the industry. - DaWyteNight
No. Get this lame, corny fake poser off this list right now! - DaWyteNight
Overrated not Overrated. - Soulstealer
I never got the whole "they are sellouts and posers" thing. They're more Alternative than Punk and even when they do make Punk, they're damn good at it. I seriously don't get where the whole sellout argument came from other than them signing to big record label when Dookie came out. - DarkBoi-X
Nah, I'm pretty sure everybody likes Bon Jovi! Only deaf people hate them!
Yes, they made "Miracles". They tried to make a song about something they thought is important and failed to an incredibly unintentionally funny extent.
But they also made "Halls of Illusions", "How", "Under the Moon", "The Tower", and others that are actually really good songs where they succeed in delivering interesting topics.
"Crossing the Bridge" is a damn fine rock song (just that they confused Friday and Tuesday when it comes to on which day christians don't eat meat turns it off a bit).
They also had some atmospherically spooky songs like "Echo Side", "Bowling Balls", "Pumpkin Carvers" or "Chris Benoit".
Yes, they also had stupid songs but those songs are meant to be stupid. They propably smoked some weed and went into the studio recording nonsense they find funny. But those songs are silly fun as well. Nevertheless, they are not the worst band ever and at least they have a distinctivr style. - Martin_Canine
People judge him on Happy Ending alone and don't even bother to check out the rest of his songs, that and the fact that he tells people truths about themselves that they don't want to hear. There's also those dumb people who hate on anything "deep" or conscious and call it corny because they'd rather listen to songs about clubbing, money and girls. - DaWyteNight
No, people just hate his persona in his music because he is known for dissing a lot of people and for embarrassingly bad songs. I don't like Hopsin but I agree he's a little overhated. - AlphaQ
Clearly, there are people that rage over only her NEW stuff (Swish Swish and Bon Appetit specifically), but nobody gives her old stuff a chance at listening.
I Kissed a Girl is one of the most misunderstood songs of all time. THE TITLE DOES NOT MEAN EVERYTHING. And being a lesbian is LEGAL, anyway. Plus, the electric guitar used in it is fantastic.
There are also some who use awful reasons like getting overplayed. First of all, it's 2019, not 2014. Second, I've said it already, but overplay is different from bad.
Being judged off of two songs is really dumb, but that's what we experience these days, unfortunately. - Bammer73
Katy perry is trash and is not overhated, she's hated because she's talentless and can't sing live. I Kissed a Girl is one of the dumbest songs I've heard and when it first came out I figured she'd be a one hit wonder, but no, people always have to make the worst artists stars. - DaWyteNight
Now I have a question: when did her reputation change that much?
At the time when she released Firework she was considered a creative, entertaining and simply good pop artist whose songs and image stan for individuality and fun.
And now her songs pop up on almost every "Worst" list, even though the quality or style of her music didn't decrease. - Martin_Canine
Because people's tastes in music changed, for better or for worse I'm not sure, but probably for worse. - allamassal
He is a good artist, I have no idea why everybody hates him. They just say "HE SucKs" - 0w0uwu
They aren’t hated that much. They deserve their praise. - Userguy44
Hated simply for being a "flop." I know, that's a dumb reason to hate an artist, but that's America for ya...
We all hate her because she was a brat while she was in the pussycat dolls and she controlled the whole group and caused the pussycat dolls to split for being a fame slut.
I know Anal C*** is a joke, but these guys are unlistenable to me. - Userguy44
Nah, they are even worse than Nickelback. - Userguy44
No, he still sucks. - Userguy44
Flo Rida is awesome and makes fun, feel good music with hooks that get stuck in your head and you can't help singing along. If you don't like it than it wasn't meant for you. Cake sounds unfinished but it's still catchy.
That is where ALL HIS HATE COMES FROM.
You do know that Lose Yourself, Stan, Rap God, Monster, Love the Way You Lie, When I'm Gone and many more great songs he's made exist, right? One song does not define everything, no matter how bad it is. Yeah, Fack sucks, but he's still made great songs. - Bammer73
He's both overhated and overrated at the same time. He's so overrated that it makes some people start to hate him. - DaWyteNight
No one hates this overrated boi - AlphaQ
He is the GOAT!
Kinda deserves the hate. Her music and personality is downright atrocious. - RiverVibeZ
She's much better now - DCfnaf
Any EDM song: Exists
Boomers: This is noise not music - 0w0uwu
I don’t think they get a lot of hate. - Userguy44
I don’t like them. - IceFoxPlayz
Not recognised at all and barely gets hate. Also, he's more underrated. - AlphaQ
Who the hell is Lil Wyte? - Himalayansalt
Wrong they are the most Overrated music artist - christangrant
Who hates the Beatles? - DaWyteNight
Hated by rockheads toward their newer music. Grow up ;-; - 0w0uwu
Another joke artist that gets way too much hate. Just because her songs are sexual doesn't make them bad, when will you prudes learn. - DarkBoi-X
If you don't take her seriously at all, she's really good.
She's satire. - AlphaQ
She's really funny
Just ignore her. Her music is satirical. - Userguy44
