Top 10 Most Overrated Metal Bands of the 2000s

I`m not a big fan of Metal myself but I like some metal. Now the 2000's had a lot of overrated metal bands. Note: I am not saying these bands are bad they just get too much attention that's all. Also I won't do metal lists often, majorly because Metal_Treasure does a lot of himself so I`ll just focus on doing rock lists still though I got nothing against either genre.

The Top Ten

1 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal 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.

@BoredJeff02,just watch this video M. Shadows - Epic scream in Rock am Ring 2011,on youtube. - zxm

Well everyone acts like this band is the second coming of christ for Metal music just like Disturbed. They get too much praise when their at best mediocre.

Why would you call them overrated?
I am just comparing some overrated musicians with them

M.Shadows - is one of the greatest singers of all time.has better vocals than billie joe armstrong.but comes after him on ranking list
Synyster Gates- is one of the greatest lead guitarists of all time.better than kurt cobain
Zacky Vengeance - not very overrated
Johnny Christ - better than mike dirnt,but comes after him
The Rev - far better than Shannon Leto,but always sticks with him

and finally AS don't come in top 2 or 3 of best metal bands - zxm

2 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American nu metal/ alternative rock/ alternative 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" .

I agree with all bands on the original remix of the author. - Metal_Treasure

Just please don't add Iron Maiden to the list - zxm

I think these guys are pretty good.

I mean their ok and all, but still their the most overrated 2000's metal band I've known.

3 Godsmack Godsmack Godsmack is an American rock band from Lawrence, Massachusetts, formed in 1995. The band is composed of founder, frontman and songwriter Sully Erna, guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill, and drummer Shannon Larkin.

Kind of overrated but Disturbed is more overrated.

4 Korn Korn Korn is an American Nu-Metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David more.

It would be a boring list if I put Korn really high on the list. Either way this band is overrated.

5 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

This metal band was quite overrated in the 2000's only three others were more overrated then this one.

6 Saliva Saliva Saliva is an American rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996. Saliva released their self-titled debut album on August 26, 1997, through Rockingchair Records, a record label owned and operated by Mark Yoshida, who recorded and produced the release at his studio, Rockingchair Studios.

As if the fact the singer of this band doing a song with Chad Kroger wasn't bad enough, this band sounds so generic, boring and redundant yet their still a popular 2000's metal band.

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

As overrated as they are, their is more overrated bands that I can think of.

Ok disturbed not overrated on e of my favorite bands Linkin park yes overrated I like godsmack and chevelle korn I like also this list is dumb

8 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is an American Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror inspired masks. more.

This one's self explanatory.

9 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.
10 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Five Finger or Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American Heavy Metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

I like this band and all but I will admit FFDP is kinda overrated.
