Top Ten Overrated, Crazy Rock Bands


The Top Ten

1 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

Wow they're not a rock band but they're overhyped by low-class 12 year old girls. They think their music is so good just because they're good looking. They don't even write their own songs or play instruments, how can they be talented. In fact they are far from it! They're just a bunch of dropouts! Worst of all, DIRECTIONERS and BELIEBERS work together to change direction of the music charts and industry and annoy us! Whoever put ALTER BRIDGE, PEARL JAM, THE BEATLES, SLAYER and PANTERA is going to suffer an unfortunate accident.

I have no clue how anyone can like the crap these idiots put out. Reasons:

-Songs are repetitive and always have the same theme of "love and girlfriends" and crap that only 12 year old girls can somehow enjoy

-You can not make a song called "the best song ever" without some sort of criticism

I can think of more things but I have limited time (Coffee Break) My final thought is that 1 direction (and lots of other current artists and bands for that matter) should be executed and their bodies impaled on barbed metal poles and burned.

They are not a rock band, however since my blood pressure rises every time I see them my vote goes here. One Direction fans are incapable of casually liking their music, they worship them like gods, stalk them online, and insist on starting arguments against anyone who disagrees with them. Never mind the fact that their music is just four-chord generic pop.

They are not at all a rock band. - 3DG20

2 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture more.

Linkin Park are okay, but I find it insane that some of their fans consider them a top ten rock band. They're more alternative than rock, and they definitely aren't anything special. I like a lot of their songs, and I'll agree that they're catchy, but they're not musical masterpieces or anything.

People say they're one of the greatest rock bands ever and say that they're greater than bands like Jimi Handrix Experience or Rush. I honestly don't get what makes them so great. I don't think they're bad or anything, but they certainly are overrated. The usual song formula is rap a little bit, yell a little bit, rap a little bit, yell a little bit, and so on. - SlimVeggie

Linkin Park is unbelievably huge. And is praised all the time. With such a massive following, of course they will be overrated. There's no doubt in that. But I certainly do think they're a rock band at best. I don't think you could call a song like "war" or " Rebellion" pop or rap rock.

How are these guys "crazy"?

3 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

Way overrated, people parade around saying that A7x is the best rock band ever, but they just aren't. They will probably never have as good guitar solos as Van Halen, as good of drums as rush, or as good vocals as guns n' roses. They simply aren't the best band ever, and the people that say they are the best are ignorant morons

Total beauty in their songs

Why is system of a down in here? System of a Down is among the most underrated bands ever! A7x is an extremely overrated band I'm sure the comments below will explain how overstated they are

Who ever put them on this list should be shot

I like slipknot but their fans are annoying

What's wrong with Slipknot? They are a pretty talented and creative band in my opinion

They are very good at least better than one direction and one republic and nickel back

There is no denying how overrated SLIPNOT is the stupid like every other crappy nu metal band

6 Dragonforce Dragonforce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

I would say Linkin Park, but they are already one, so I will vote these guys. They just speed their stuff up, which just makes their "music" worse. All of their songs sound the same as well.

Playing really fast doesn't make you good. Especially when all their songs sound the same. - seabass4115

Okay they play fast and crazy songs but seriously? - BBBB

Let me guess why they're here. They sped up their songs. Right? - zxm

7 System Of A Down System Of A Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Nu Metal group from Glendale, California . The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. more.

These guys are UNDERrated. Even if they weren't, they deserve more fans

Um, System of a Down isn't underrated. Just look at the metal bands list and regret making this comment. - Mumbizz01

Listen to BYOB, this band is very crazy!

8 Green Day Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some more.

They are awesome! Screw you guys!

Who in the name of GOD did this?

I don't want Green Day to rank any higher but I just have to say this:

Green Day is definitely NOT overrated! And yes they may be crazy on some of their songs,... but that's the thing about them!

Why is Green Day in this list? Green Day has come up with incredibly clever,inspiring and wonderful songs over the past two decades. It doesn't deserve to be on this list at all and yeah, it isn't overrated at all

Composed of lead vocalist and guitarist Jack Black and lead guitarist and vocalist Kyle Gass, the band has released three albums – Tenacious D, The Pick of Destiny and Rize of the Fenix.

I don't know why people rip this band to shreads only band I no that can but comedy/humour into the songs and sound brilliant!

This is literally a joke band. They aren't TRYING to make quality music. They're trying to sell records by making you laugh, which they do very well. They're hilarious

You can�'t kill the metal

Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Molly Hatchet could not be here tonight. But they all had sex and are proud to announce the birth of their 2-headed baby, Tenacious D.
They aren't overrated, they are the best comedy band in the business. - SoldierOfFortune

The Contenders

11 Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine is a rock band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band consists of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, bassist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello and drummer Brad Wilk.

Are you kidding me? Without RATM, rap metal would just be douches like Fred Durst running around rapping with worthless Lil Wayne, never having anything relevant with their music. RATM is an amazing group of musicians and Zach is a great rapper. Their lyrics focus on politics but they actually know what they're talking about and everything about them kicks ass.

Even though I despise rap metal with a passion, these guys are still one of my all time favorite bands, mostly because of Tom Morello.

Without these guys, rap metal probably would've been gone by now! First of all, you've got a certain douchebag named Fred Durst. He was the OTHER face of rap metal. Without RATM, rap metal would be filled with a bunch of douchebags like Fred Durst.

RATM is awesome. Why did you put this on the list anyway? - Pony

12 Diamond Head Diamond Head Diamond Head are an English heavy metal band formed in 1976 in Stourbridge, England.

13 Heart Heart Heart is an American rock band that first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide.

What the heck?! Without Ann and Nancy, I feel that many later female rockers wouldn't have stepped up to the plate. Great band.

14 Red Hot Chili Peppers Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili Peppers is an American funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. more.

I'd bet that this is from the same person who put Queen on this list. But hey you just can't fix stupid!

15 X Japan X Japan X Japan is a Japanese heavy metal band from Chiba, formed in 1982 by drummer Yoshiki and lead vocalist Toshi. V 1 Comment
16 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

I love all their songs! But if I had to pick a few of my favorites it would have to be Tally It Up, Settle the Score, Congratulations FT. Matty Mullins, Your Nickel Ain't Worth My Dime, and Here we Go.

Plus their new album Madness is amazing! My top 3 favorite off of their are We Like it Loud, Fly, and November.

Really they are just an amazing band! - music-is-life

I personally don't believe that this band has too much talent. - Narranoxa

I love their songs especially Roger Rabbit! The best!

I love this band there amazing I love if you can't hang and with ears to see and eyes to hear, oh and also if I'm james dean then your aundry hepburn love it!

19 Slayer Slayer more.

Raining blood and South of heaven rest of their songs sound the same and sounds crap

Why are the good bands on here so high on this list? Seriously? Alter Bridge has one of the best solos in rock and roll, Gun's n roses was epic, Led zeppelin, Metallica, and Green Day are only a few bands that are now under appreciated because of pop "music" like 1D and Jonas Brothers *gag*. -Memecenter User - bighercules

This bank ranks are the biggest piece of crap on the face of the planet. Lyrics completely stupid and music ship nonexistent... Suk!

20 Guns 'n' Roses

This list is terrible Guns 'n' Roses are awesome and Van Halen, Motley Crue, Metallica, Coldplay, Slayer, Green Day and Pantera what is this list going to have next? Led Zeplan. This list is overrated all those bands ROCK.

I like Slash, but Axel is very annoying. If you could switch him with Robert Plant, this band would be great

I actually like Slash, but for some reason Axl always gets on my nerves.

I agree this list is the overrated one around here
