Top 10 Most Overrated Metal Bands of the 1980s-2010s

Metalheads, this is a TROLL list, DON'T FEED - don't vote, don’t comment, don't remix and don't add new items. If you do this you only add points to his total and probably will also get this troll list to the #1 hottest new lists.

HA Judas Priest was formed in 1969. - IronSabbathPriest

4 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois . The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren . They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .
