Most Overrated Music Artists of 2016ProPanda
The Top Ten
People really have forgotten what the word overrated means. They aren't terrible, but I've taken a listen to them, and they seem to have declined in creativity with each album. What really settles it is how much their fans claim to be "fans" but only listen to songs off Blurryface, by far their worst album, and yes, Heathens, likely their worst song. They never really had much uniqueness, and their songs already were just suburban white trash cliches. I certainly don't have much positive stuff to say other than, they're, catchy? I guess...other than that, they're simply the most overrated music artist of today. - naFrovivuS
(All my opinion here. If you have a different one, that's okay!)
Heathens was their big song this year, and unfortunately probably one of their worst songs. It was shallow sounding, the lyrics were boring, the chorus and hook were just- well, everything about that song was bland! Onto Twenty One Pilots themselves: these guys are consistently overrated. The instrumentals are nothing special. K-mart/Soundcloud beats over high school poetry slam rapping. The part of TOP that's most often praised are their lyrics.
Maybe in their self titled album, and possibly Vessel. But this is 2016 here- the focus is Blurryface and Heathens. While there is some wordplay I like in songs like Stressed Out- "out of student loans and tree house homes we all would take the latter" (gedd it? l atter and ladder? Ha ha.) the lyrics are for the most part mind-numbingly cheesy/straight up bad. Examples:
"My taste in music is your face! "
"I wasn't ...more
Their lyrics are REALLY relatable, maybe not the best singer, writer, drummer, but hey they really put effort in their songs. They are not false and they really take care of The clique. I really enjoy their work and I love that their songs are very unique. Their lyrics are also unique, they talk about real stuff. Maybe we just have different music tastes. But totally respect your opinion. Have a goog day!
Honestly, they're not a terrible band, but for HEAVEN'S SAKE, PEOPLE ACT LIKE THEY'RE THE MESSIAH OF MUSIC. Seriously, there are infinitely better bands, and you can trust me; I've listened to their entire discography multiple times and my opinion hasn't changed. - PsiV 18 Comments
Do they even have any talents?
They are really annoying and their songs are just mediocre.
They use the same rhythm (or path as some people call it) of chords in every damn song. They do NOT have any musical talent whatsoever and their albums just keep getting worse and worse.
WHY THE HECK ARE THE CHAINSMOKERS CONSIDERED GOOD MUSIC?!?!?! Almost everyone I know loves them. They have laughably horrible synth work and REPREHENSIBLE SONGS (especially Closer, which is one of the most horrid songs ever created). Go listen to Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Deadmau5, and all of the other masters of EDM. The Chainsmokers are the worst things to come out of my absolute FAVORITE music genre. - PhoenixAura81V 13 Comments
Not overrated just bad in my opinion - Hiimme
BOO - UltimateCraig
I put Drake this "lw" because his music has gotten low accaim and lots of hate as= well - ProPanda
Drake is below Bieber this year...?
This has to be a joke. - SwagFlicks
Wow, beiber on the top of a top tens list, what a TWIST! Seriously, his new stuff is pretty good, it's time to move on from 2009. - Jackamalio
I mean I find it hilarious if someone who had a better voice than bieber came onto the scene, just cause fan girls don't idolize them, their songs will never reach number 1
He's decently rated as of late, but seriously, I don't think he should be number one. - SwagFlicks

Thank god the fanbase hasn't found this yet. I like her but she's overrated. - ProPanda
Voted just for commenting. If you guys don't know what you're talking about than just don't. Melanie is awesome: her songs have the whole childhood thing but they do have extremely serious meanings. Her voice is marvelous. And she isn't "another pop hoe". Go build an argument before hating on people. Ya'll dumb though.
YES. She gets WAY too much attention. She's not even good. I can say her cover of "Pity Party" was good, but other than that, no. - TidalJ
Very overrated, but that's because she has a beautiful voice and many like it.V 20 Comments
I love Halsey! Like TOP, listen to her other stuff. - UltimateCraig
Shes so overrated! - AnnieCallie
New Americana only hit top 60. Chainsmokers were the primary reason of Closer going #1. Colors and Gasoline flopped hard. Outside of her fanbase, no one really liked her. How is she overrated? - ProPanda
Her voice is good, some of her songs are good but the others are not that good. I think she's so considered because there's no soul singer better than her, but you can't say she is the soul queen. Amy maybe could be but not Adele.
25 was so overplayed, and so was hello. It was a good song, but so overrated
She has a beautiful, strong voice but... ok... let's say it bad, overplayed songs
A song about how people shouldn't worry about their appearance gets her famous and she totally ruins it by singing a song about how people should be just like her.
All her songs sucks.I'm even amazed that people liked her song "me too", where in the entire song is basically her bragging about herself. There are idiots that actually love this garbage.
All her songs are about that men suck, and why do suck, basically a ultra feminist
He sounds like every other teen male singer. - Swellow
So true and that picture is pure photoshop and CRAP!... I am not a hater...
He is a good music artist but, does not deserve his fame, + he is overhyped
How the hell is he overrated, he writes his own songs, plays the instruments, and sings, he’s the most underrated artist out thereV 1 Comment
Though Black Beatles was awesome. SremmLife 2 was awFUL. RAE SREMMURD IS THE WIRST BAND EVER. But they getting some hate so I disagree - AlphaQ
Should be higher.
She isn't that great of a singer
eh pass - UltimateCraig
A lot of her music today sounds the same. She's becoming more generic and bland than ever. And am I the only one who's getting this really forced sexy vibe from her music videos? People say that she's pretty, but I can't tell with all the make up caked on her face. She doesn't bother to pronounce her words when she sings. She can hit a few high notes here and there, but that doesn't make her outstanding. Honestly, I've heard better vocals from Demi Lovato!
She's so overrated, it's annoying. Her fans love to say that she's transforming into this ultra sexy idgaf chick, but there is nothing sexy about constantly singing that you take dick! The tactic is so overused, I wouldn't be surprised if she sung about giving head.
They suck, but not as bad as Shawn you-know-who... - UltimateCraig
OH GOD PLEASE NO. OH GOD NO. STOP. WE DON'T CARE AHHH
Holy crap! Just saw where the university of Texas is offering a course featuring Lemonade as a major study unit. Gag me with a forklift.
If she was ugly and had a below average figure, nobody would care about her at all.
Geez, her fandom keeps gushing like "Lemonade" is the next "Blonde on Blonde".
LMAO, Blonde on Blonde is a classic rock album. How is it a Beyoncé album?
Also, threatening to kill yourself with a forklift is idiotic. - Swellow
She can't even sing good and she's such a fake annoying bitch..-_-
The Weeknd was awesome and like the best in 2016 - AlphaQ
Starboy is so generic pop song. This singer deserves the most overrated R&B artist nowadays. - waraypiso
She seriously makes me sick.
She didn't even release any music in 2016! How is she overrated in 2016? - NicholasYellow
Nah. She kaput in 2016 - AlphaQ
The "thick" part in his name refers to how dense he is, musically and intelligence wise. - Swellow
No. His only song is Blurred Lines in 2013. Forget about hin - AlphaQ
He talented but went a bit downhill in 2016 - AlphaQ
Not really. Can get annoying then fans call them underrated, but I don't see them as overrated - Chatsa2
I've liked every single song I've ever heard by Prince. He isn't overrated but underrated. People only really took notice of his most famous songs after his death. - Britgirl
Someone who almost nobody likes isn't overrated - ProPanda
Disgusting disgrace to music. - Catacorn
Welcome to autotune quantization!
I hate him - Neonco31
She is underrated
I hate her - AnnieCallie
Sorry guys, but she is incredibly overrated. I don't really like her music much. She mostly reminds me of Lady GaGa who I also dislike. Some of her music is okay, but I would rather listen to P! ATD, TØP, Or My Chemical Romance. But this is only my opinion.
