People consider this band as the best band of the 2000's. Their not even the best band of the 2000's Green Day or Foo Fighters is more worthy of that title.

You don't like them that does not mean they are overrated

They get way too much attention they are overrated and that's not why I don't like them.

I do not understand the term 'overrated' then. I mean how can a band be overrated with over 2 billion views on YouTube, with songs that are getting more popular like Numb(look at the statistics on the song on YouTube)

It's not about views but the fact that everyone keeps over-praising this band when their generic. Not too mention how much attention all of their albums get every year. Their more overrated then the Beatles!

2 Papa Roach Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

This band gets so much attention all because of Last Resort. Even their songs sound way too boring and they get like 1 million or-so listeners on Spotify definitely overrated.

I don't like last resort's rapping but the guitar riff of that song is awesome - zxm

3 Coldplay Coldplay Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist).

More like overhated. They get as much hate as Nickelback, how are they overrated exactly?

How they are overrated when only few people like them._.? - zxm

This band is even more overrated then Papa Roach, only one band is more overrated then Breaking Crinjamin.

7 Thirty Seconds To Mars Thirty Seconds To Mars Thirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band consists of Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Miličević.

Just like Linkin Park they get so damn over-praised their ok but their nothing special.

8 Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop, horrorcore and rap rock duo consisting of rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, that was formed in 1989 in Detroit. more.

The Contenders
