She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. more.

Ariana Grande's music is so generic and uninteresting, it's the kind of trite you'd hear in McDonald's. I especially hate that disasterpiece with the name Thank You Next. A LOT. It's so annoying and terrible, yet it's played everywhere! - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

I honestly despise this disgrace of a woman. She is nothing but an overplayed piece of trash

Thank you for some reason Ariana grande has been playing none stop and most of the songs that I hear on the radio I feel are just from her biggest fans for no reason they just want to be recognized from her.

I love Ariana Grande songs she has very good voice love all her songs and T.V. shows 7/10

3 Post Malone Post Malone Austin Richard Post (born July 4, 1995), known professionally as Post Malone, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, record producer, and guitarist.

Rockstar, Better Now, Psycho, Congratulations, Jackie Chan, etc are all overplayed. It's like you can't find any radio station that doesn't play his generic music!

Post Malone ain't no rockstar, he's a talentless pop-rapper. Besides, if he was a rockstar, he wouldn't get on radio at all in this day and age. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

He needs to take his music with him and get in the shower

I feel like he is the biggest idiot ever this guy is truly a bad person and a bad artist.

5 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

What About Us, Beautiful Trauma, A Million Dreams were highly overplayed throughout the year, they were so annoying,

Only What About Us was highly overplayed. I only heard the 2nd of those songs a few times and never heard the last one. - allamassal

I like P! nk but "What About Us" was played so much that I started to hate it.

What About Us being played +1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times a day is some more proof that music in the 2010s is inferior to the music of all other previous decades. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about more.

End Game, Ready for It and Delicate are so overrated and overplayed. Delicate is the worst out of those three, and the music video is stupid. In it, all she does is make dumb faces. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

7 Bebe Rexha Bebe Rexha

Meant to Be sucks. - B1ueNew

She will be forgotten. - VaibavKrishna

Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

Girls Like You is practically their only song being played. Their other songs are never played at all compared to that generic cancer "song". That song makes Taki Taki look like Hotel California - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Since 2016 They became so annoying : Don't wanna know, Wait, Cold, Girls like you what too much of the same. The way Adam is singing in every single one of this songs annoy me so much.

I swear, if I hear Wait and Girls Like You one more time on the radio, I will nuke the Super Bowl.

9 NF NF Nathan "Nate" John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, is an American Christian hip hop rapper, singer and musician from Gladwin, Michigan.

High Hopes is a great song. But it's getting too overplayed. - B1ueNew

Well, I mean, he likes Nickelback. Should we all take him seriously? - ZeroBlaster

I am a Sinner all the way! Although High Hopes was an amazing song, people overplayed it. Their other songs are awesome too though

High hopes is an awesome song, but overall, I don't like this artist too much.

High hopes is on the radio way too much.. But its an OK song in my opinion... - Monkeywolf228

The Contenders

11 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

Selena Gomez's music is literal trash, her vocals are almost as bad as her lyrics. I'm sorry if you love her, but I honestly hate her music, hate her, hate her petty, vulgar attitude and I absolutely can't stand her. I can recognize talent but this just isn't it.

12 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, professionally known by her stage name Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.
13 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed Sheeran, stop making your song cliche and stop being overdramatic with the voice and ugh the lyrics! He needs to die already

Perfect and Shape of You are generic, boring and repetitive songs and should not have gotten as popular as they did. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

14 BTS BTS BTS, also known as Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy group formed by Big Hit Entertainment.

Overrated trash - AlphaQ

My little sister is obsesses with this overrated and mostly talentless boy band, who most likely don't write any of their own music.

It's fairly well known that BTS does at the very least does write a good chunk of their own music. Not all of it of course, but a lot more than other groups. - MasonOcker

I think they're not overrated, they wrote a lot of their songs unlike other kpop artists and they have good songs, good message. Also it most be hard to be them because they always make their best.

Are these the seven dwarfs from Snow White? - A_Dying_Parrot

He's gotten more overplayed since his death. This douche is only famous because he died. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Come on Don't call him a douche yes he's overplayed and everything but still have some respect - Redrocky416

Now I don't like this guy but I felt bad that they overplayed his songs just to exploit him because he died

Never heard him on the radio. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Overrated hunk of trash, only considered good because he's dead

They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from more.

I am part of the minority of people who think that Beyoncé is overrated. I’m 12, I’ve listened to Beyoncé songs, and I found them... boring.
I believe that she’s a beautiful woman and probably a great person, her music is way overplayed.

17 Zedd Zedd Zedd is a Russian- German DJ known for his hits such as Clarity, Transmission, and Break Free. He is best known for his album True Colors, which has the highest debut on the Billboard 200 for an EDM album (tied with Skrillex's Recess). He is one the the richest EDM artists in the industry.

That song The Middle is pretty annoying to listen to. The chorus of that song is stupid, and the entire song is a rip-off to his other song Stay, which was bad enough. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Comparing with Illenium (different styles though)? Illenium is way better.

18 Anne-Marie Anne-Marie

Friends is a terrible song, that tries too hard to be edgy. It just sounds like every single other song in the mainstream today. There's literally no way to tell each song apart from one another anymore. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Alarm is very good song of her

Hey annie marie

21 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

This band is amazing, but most people wont know because they are "hate" this band because THE RADIO plays maybe THREE of their songs too much. Well let me say this I NEVER get to hear these guys on the radio and they have Amazing songs(especially the older ones) such as: Bleeding out, its time, amsterdam, fallen, thief, dream, smoke and mirrors, 30 lives, round and round, my fault. Their music means something special unlike most music today. They give good messages (gold is about the dowside of being famous. 30 lives was written for one of their friends/fans that died of cancer. Bleeding out to me means doing anything for someone we love even if it means dying or bleeding out)

Well...I liked Bad Liar and Born To Be Yours, but they were overplayed. Along with Believer, Radioactive, Thunder and Whatever It Takes, they were too overplayed.

Seriously, these pieces of epic fail on legs are the trendiest band of all time and the cringiest band since Backstreet Boys. Believer is one of the worst songs of all time, and I think it's much worse than Thunder. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

You sure, buddy? Thunder has a positive message? Whatever It Takes has a positive message? You're one hilarious person. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

I like Believer and I LOVE Radioactive, but I don't like any of their other songs.

Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

If you listen to classic rock stations, they are played every 15 minutes.

I'd say Queen is overplayed for a good reason. I was drawn in by their cheesy songs and then introduced to their earlier works where they were much weirder and some would say hard to access. I'm glad they're over played because it's the reason why I got out of EDM and into what ever the hell I listen to now. - Nyoom

How is Queen overplayed, other than Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You? Have you even heard of Flick of the Wrist or The Prophet’s Song?
