Top 10 Overhated Rock Songs of the 2000s and 2010s

These songs of the 2000's and 2010's get too much hate. These songs have to be from 2000 to now that is my only rule for this list.

The Top Ten

1 Heavy - Linkin Park & Kiiara

To be really honest, I didn't like this song that much. And before you call me biased, I used to be a huge LP fanboy and ate all their music up even if wasn't all that good. These days I actually prefer their newer stuff than their crappy Nu Metal days. While not a big fan anymore I can still look forward to new music by them. But this. This is just downright disappointing. I'm going to look into what they have in store next, but if their next single was as much of a let down as this than I expect nothing much in their next album. - cjWriter1997

Honestly this song sounds better than most modern pop music and generally is quite decent.

2 Feed the Machine - Nickelback

It's not that bad actually.

Never knew a 2017 song could sound like it was from 2003. - SwagFlicks

3 Rockstar - Nickelback

Not too bad I think. Utterly goofy and Chad still sounds like a bad Kurt Cobain, but the production is perfectly fine and it's still a perfectly fine song overall. Overhated because of the band, not the song I'd say. - Mrveteran

It's not their best song but it's not their worst song.

6 Rollin' - Limp Bizkit UListen to Sample
7 Something in Your Mouth - Nickelback

Granted it's not my favorite Nickelback song but it's not as bad as No Fixed Adress.

8 St. Anger - Metallica

Nope. This is Metallica's attempt to adopt a more nu metal sound and utterly suck in the process. Thank God they went back to a thrash sound after this. - Mrveteran

9 The Reason - Hoobastank.

Granted this song wasn't the best song made by Hoobastank but dear god the hate it gets is just downright annoying.

Disappear was hoobastanks best song!

This song cracks me up as well. After seeing the series of memes on YouTube I can never listen to this song without thinking of that stupid face and "Look at this graaph". - cjWriter1997

I remember when this song came out it got so much hate just for being poppy dear god...
