The Top Ten
I like Green Day, but this song is so overdone. Most of the singles to American idiot were the worst songs. I prefer songs like St. jimmy, Give Me Novacaine or Whatsername over this song. - cjWriter1997
I know this song mostly because it's a well known ripoff case - The Last Time by The Rolling Stones. A lawsuit awarded the songwriting credits and royalties to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. - Metal_Treasure
The most overrated alternative song of all time.
Quite a overrated song.
Actually it smells like a overrated song...
In my honest opinion, this song is averagely rated and Nirvana is severely underrated. - ProPanda

Its kinda overrated. But where's Smells Like Teen Spirit? - zxm
Gets a lot more attention than it deserves honestly.
Not even one of Arctic monkey's best songs.
Overrated it is...
Not a bad song but it does get a lot of attention.
Definitely overrated, moreso than any Nirvana song. - NuMetalManiak
I think this song honestly requires no explanation.
Pop punk not alternative.
Agree here - christangrant
It gets somewhat a lot of attention but not enough to be ranked higher.
I like this song but I won't lie it is a bit overrated.
1 This isn't a alternative song (Nickelback at this point was a hard rock band)
2 Its not overrated if anything its overhated because nobody likes this
3 Why do people think its fun to add Nickelback to every list about being bad or overrated seriously the joke isn't funny anymore move on to hating something else - christangrant
If I hear this song on my Alternative Radio again, someone will die. - djpenquin999
