Top Ten Overrated Music Artist Signature Songs

The Top Ten

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I hate whenever someone wears a Nirvana shirt but can only name Smells Like Teen Spirit, or don't know there a band and think there a clothing brand. Also Come As You Are, Hart Shaped Box and Lithium are 1,200 times better - GoldenRocket

This song is a great song no doubt about it, but I personally think You Know You're Right is their best song. Kurt lets out a lot of pain and aggression in that track. In this track you can tell he doesn't like this song all that much. - MontyPython

Come As You Are? Heart Shaped Box? LOVE BUZZ? Some Nirvana fans need to know more of their other stuff. This is far from the best Nirvana song. - NuMetalManiak

OH YES defintaley this song gets so damn annoying seeing it number 1 on so many lists - christangrant

2 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

It's a great song, but there are just so many others that are better. - IronSabbathPriest

3 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

This my favorite Led Zeppelin song, but I wish songs like Thank You, Communication Breakdown, and When the Levee Breaks weren't so overshadowed by this song. They deserve more recognition and love. - MontyPython

By no means their best song. Or anything special. And putting it on best songs everywhere is tiresome and inane. - PositronWildhawk

It is a great song, but I find it to be way overrated. It isn't even Led Zeppelin's best song - Shake_n_Bake13

Whole Lotta Love Was Way Better. - FettiMC

4 Pull Me Under - Dream Theater

It's good, but gets a bit repetitive after a while. - IronSabbathPriest

5 Ace of Spades - Motorhead

Again, awesome song, but the majority of "fans" only know this song! - IronSabbathPriest

6 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

Maybe. It's still a great song. - IronSabbathPriest

Thriller is 100% better. - MontyPython

7 Burden - Opeth
8 Sweet Child O Mine - Guns N' Roses

I can't be the only one who likes Paradise City, Welcome to the Jungle, and especially November Rain better. - MontyPython

Great song, but not the best at all. - IronSabbathPriest

9 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
10 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Great song but not their best - christangrant

The Contenders

11 Eagle Fly Free - Helloween

There's "I Want Out"... - Pony

12 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

My Immortal is easily better. - MontyPython

13 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Great song but I wouldn't even put this in my top 15 metallica songs - christangrant

14 Wonderwall - Oasis

Oasis have done a lot of excellent songs, but this one is garbage. - PositronWildhawk

15 Caught in a Mosh - Anthrax
16 Madhouse - Anthrax
17 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

Only one of them is, ironically. - PositronWildhawk

18 Strobe - Deadmau5 V 2 Comments
19 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

It may be a good song, but Separate Ways is so much better. That's the one that deserves all the credit, not this one - Shake_n_Bake13

20 Promises - Nero
