Top 10 Overhyped Albums

The Top Ten

1 Yeezus - Kanye West

Nah, this album is a masterpiece

2 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

3 Views - Drake

Well then, jokes on you guys. - SwagFlicks

4 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

5 The Sickness - Disturbed

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

6 Anti - Rihanna

Pretty sure the only reason this is on the list is because of Work. Kiss It Better and Desperado are some of the best songs of Rihanna's career, which is saying a lot. - WonkeyDude98

7 The Hunting Party - Linkin Park

Yes, this was insanely overhyped and then some. - SwagFlicks

8 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Call me a fanboy, but I adore this album

I don't mind this album, I'm just voting to get Endtroducing out of the top 3. - WonkeyDude98

9 Starboy - The Weeknd
10 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

The Newcomers

? Kid A - Radiohead

The Contenders

11 One X - Three Days Grace
12 Dystopia - Megadeth
13 Sremmlife 2 - Rae Sremmurd

Black Beatles, Enough Said - VideoGamefan5

14 Ok Computer - Radiohead

How in God's name was this not already on here (and believe me, I wholeheartedly AGREE that it's BY FAR one of the greatest albums of all time) - xandermartin98

15 American Idiot - Green Day

Well then. I can get how someone would feel underwhelmed, but not me! - ProPanda

16 Suicide Squad: The Album - Various Artists
17 Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Only communists hate Red Hot Chili Peppers

People can hate Red Hot Chili Peppers without being labeled a communist.

18 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers

I bet you adored Karl Marx

19 Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers


20 City of Evil - Avenged Sevenfold

Even as a non Avenged Sevenfold fan, I hate A7X with an extreme passion. And nobody can stop me. Even if I am admitting this, I like this album.

21 Nevermind - Nirvana

I don't know any hype that came out of this album. Yeah, it may be the most overrated grunge album, but that's literally it. - SwagFlicks

22 Purple - Stone Temple Pilots

One of my favorite bands. Great album.

Underrated - mmarce445

23 Core - Stone Temple Pilots

One of my favorite bands. Great album.

Underrated - mmarce445

24 Skeleton Tree - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

When was this hyped if nobody outside the site knows Nick Cave? - Hotheart123

I hadn't even heard of these guys till Spectrum Pulse... - ProPanda

As Good As It Is, I Have To Admit, Its Kinda Overrated, don't KILL ME PLEASE - VideoGamefan5

Nice bait.

Maybe it was a bad idea to give this album attention on this site... - WonkeyDude98

25 Illuminate - Shawn Mendes
26 Lemonade - Beyonce

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

How can an album be hyped if it wasn't even foreshadowed before-hand? - Swellow

It's a surprise album. Had no hype to begin with. - ProPanda

27 Let It Be - The Beatles
28 Geogaddi - Boards of Canada
29 Meteora - Linkin Park
30 My Everything - Ariana Grande
31 Mother's Milk - Red Hot Chili Peppers


32 By the Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers
33 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metallica
34 Endtroducing... - DJ Shadow

Hype =/= acclaim. The await for a new metal album is hype. This is over a decade old, and only like 5% of users on this site know this album.

That's not even mentioning how it's awesome. - WonkeyDude98

35 The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here - Alice in Chains
36 How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb - U2
37 Superunknown - Soundgarden
38 Blackstar - David Bowie

A good album, but overly worshiped by prepubescent teenagers. - Swellow

40 Toxicity - System of a Down
