Most Overrated Classic Rock Songs

21 Start Me Up - The Rolling Stones Start Me Up - The Rolling Stones

Spent 31 Weeks at #1 on the chart and is still played to death on radio today. -

22 Sweet Child (O' Mine) - Guns N' Roses Sweet Child (O' Mine) - Guns N' Roses
23 Highway to Hell - AC/DC Highway to Hell - AC/DC
24 Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones
25 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

I was thinking of putting "Summer of '69", the most generic rock song ever, on here but with that song at least I know some people who don't like it. I was also thinking of putting "In the Air Tonight", a boring, lifeless song, but I chose "Comfortably Numb" because a lot of people worship Pink Floyd and treat this as their best song. I don't mind Pink Floyd, in fact "Wish you were Here" is one of my favorite albums, but a lot of their stuff is a little overrated. This song on the other hand is horrifyingly overrated. It is a boring, lifeless (but then again a lot of PF's stuff is a little lifeless, but not to this extreme), and confusing song. In fact this feels like a filler song to me, and I do know the where it fits in on The Wall. I guess people like this song because it makes them feel like they are on drugs, and if that is the case I am glad I never take them.

You think this song is lifeless and a filler? You clearly don't understand anything about the song. Did you miss gilmour's emotional guitar solo at the end? If this song is filler then every song on every album ever is filler. - XoTiC_iB

It's not really overrated. It's an amazing song. Don't say the song is overrated just because it's the most popular Pink Floyd song. If any Pink Floyd song is overrated it's Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2 - hype

Eh, yeah it's a good song, but listen to something like echoes(meddle) or something, and then respond to me.

26 A Day In the Life - The Beatles A Day In the Life - The Beatles

It might have been really ambitious in the 60's, but it doesn't hold up and I don't see how this song is better than songs like While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Here Comes The Sun
