Most Overrated Modern Rock/Metal Albums (1990-2016)


The Top Ten

1 Nevermind - Nirvana

This should be number 1 on every list that says overrated on it - christangrant

This isn't even Nirvana's best album. - Metalfan2112

Get this off the list! Every Nirvana song is great(apart from dumb)but Nevermind is a beautiful class of its own.Smells Like Teen Spirit and Breed are about rocking out.Polly and Something in the Way are gentle acoustic tunes.Lithium and In Bloom have Choruses that stick in your head for days and come as you are is just a masterpeice. - Lord28

2 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park V 1 Comment
3 Fallen - Evanescence
4 Iowa - Slipknot
5 American Idiot - Green Day

None of these albums are overrated as Nevermind by Nirvana - zxm

6 Dookie - Green Day
7 Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold

This isn't overrated. - Metalfan2112

The Contenders

11 Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold
