Most Overrated Metal Songs Released Since 2000

Please DON'T ADD any songs by Linkin Park, Slipknot or Disturbed or any other Nu or Alternative Metal band that Is NOT actually metal. Also keep in mind that overrated does not always necessarily mean bad.

The Top Ten

1 Bleed - Meshuggah

This song is hailed as one of the best metal songs ever,but honestly I don't see anything great about it.The riff in the begging though good is just 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0 and repeats throught the song many times.You may have heard a riff similar to this a million times, nothing special. And clearly you can understand that most of the song is just 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0.The vocals on it are just your generic growled vocals,the drumming on it is probably the only special thing about it.I also will add the fact that many Meshuggah fans only know this song from them.Some even think they are djent fans just because they like this song,this song might as well be called the Smell like Teen Spirit of Meshuggah and Djent. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

4 Dystopia - Megadeth

Currently at #17 in the Best Megadeth songs list.I find it generic as hell and Dave vocals seem way to forced.Also the album of the name is pretty mediocre like the title track. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

8 Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce

Sounds too poppy for me. - Userguy44

Didn't put very high because even though this song is very popular it also gets lots of hate,the same happens with DragonForce themself. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

9 Blood and Thunder - Mastodon

I don't get the appeal of this band,though I like this particular song.But I hear nothing original the riffs sound very familiar and the vocals are almost 100% Pantera worship. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

10 Blackwater Park - Opeth
