Top 10 Overhyped Albums

The Top Ten

1 Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots

Very Overrated - VideoGamefan5

Wait, was under the impression that 21 piliots only got famous after the album. I think your confusing overhyped for ovverrated - RecklessGreed

2 Yeezus - Kanye West

Nah, this album is a masterpiece

3 Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold

Um, pretty sure you didn't know what you were doing when you made this list. Avenged Sevenfold is easily my favorite band. Hate me all you want but the truth is they're just amazing and the most talented band of this generation. No way are they are overhyped or are their albums.

Meh. As an A7X fan, I'd like to say this politely because I saw there is people being rude in the comment section. I respect your opinion if you don't like A7X. Hell, Nightmare is better than this album. In my opinion.

I think someone added all of A7x albums, lol. - zxm

4 Views - Drake

Well then, jokes on you guys. - SwagFlicks

Disturbed is my favorite band so obviously I like this album. Don't judge me, I love Avenged Sevenfold as well.

14 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Coming from someone who didn't think much of Beyonce beforehand, I would say that this deserves all of its hype, and then some. - SwagFlicks
