Most Overhated Rock and Metal Songs

The hate some of these songs get is ridiculous these songs are overhated

The Top Ten

1 Rockstar - Nickelback

Not the greatest song ever but also not the worst rock song - christangrant

2 With Arms Wide Open - Creed

This is no where near the worst rock song I have ever heard - christangrant

3 St. Anger - Metallica

This to me is a very good song it gets hated on just because its on St. Anger - christangrant

4 Something In Your Mouth - Nickelback

Lyrically the song isn't the greatest however it has a really good guitar riff and the lyrics are standard for Hard Rock - christangrant

5 Rollin' - Limp Bizkit

We all know Limp Bizkit Sucks @$$ but this song is actually descent and not the worst rock or metal song ever like some claim - christangrant

6 American Bad Ass - Kid Rock

I really like this song for some reason just like Rollin I guess it was because both were the Undertakers theme song at one point cause this a guilty pleasure - christangrant

This is a fun song to listen to. I really hate Bawithaba a lot more than this song because that one is incredibly repetitive. - NuMetalManiak

7 Mama Said - Metallica

Gets hate for being a "Country" Song when it still sounds like something Metallica would do - christangrant

8 Crush Em - Megadeth

There are worse Megadeth songs than this one - christangrant

9 Higher - Creed

This isn't as bad as some people make it out to be - christangrant

10 Click Click Boom - Saliva

This is a pretty good song actually a bit overhated - christangrant

The Contenders

11 Photograph - Nickelback
12 Cathedral Spires - Judas Priest

This is actually a very good epic song. It's overhated only because it was on Jugulator, an album with Tim Ripper Owens and not with Rob Halford on vox. Check it out and be convinced. - Metal_Treasure

13 Purify - Metallica
14 Alexander the Great - Iron Maiden
15 Everything I Do (I Do It for You) - Bryan Adams

If you are on youtube music critic videos, you'll understand why this song is overhated. While I can understand the hate this song gets, as is indeed corny as heck and clich├ęd, I can't give it any higher or lower than a C on an A to F grading scale. Not great (that would be Faithfully by Journey when it comes to power ballads), but not as awful as online critics say it is.

16 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce

It's NOT sped up. Stop insulting Herman Li, this is ridiculous.
