Most Overrated Music Artists of 2020

The Top Ten

1 Billie Eilish Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell, known professionally as Billie Ellish (born December 18, 2001) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her songs "When the Party's Over", "Bury a Friend" and especially "Bad Guy".

I don't hate her and most of her songs in her debut were good enough (my favorites being Wish You Were Gay and I Love You) but jesus christ, innovative? Groundbreaking? Original? Girl is just a darker version of Lorde with trap and rap beats, I don't get why many people is treating her as the future savior of music - Pato_cargo

She's not that bad or anything, but she's extremely overhyped and she also seems to glorify depression. - RiverVibeZ

Weird /=/ Good - Joeljohns249

When will she make a song where she doesn’t whisper? - Userguy44

2 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. ...read more.

Now mostly only overrated on this site. Given the heavy rock and metal fan-base demographic on this site, it doesn't surprise me that 2 of their songs were spam-voted to the Top 3 of last year's best songs list.
Besides it's kinda hard to take this band seriously when their entire appeal is based on scary masks/costumes with simplistic one-note breakdowns and a fanbase that thinks heavyness defines quality ("IOWA level heavyness").
Their music is best marketed for 12 yo middle school bullies - Joeljohns249

They are quite average in my opinion, and this is coming from a metalhead. - RiverVibeZ

Agreed. - Soulstealer

Yeah, to be honest i’m slightly growing out of them. - Userguy44

3 Lizzo

Her entire career is based on fat acceptance and body positivity. Music always comes second for her - Joeljohns249

Let's hope that she'll be a one hit wonder. - RiverVibeZ

4 Tool Tool is an American progressive/alternative/post-metal band, that was formed in 1990. ...read more.

Again, now only overrated on this site. Their latest single was again hopped up pretty quickly into the Top 2 of best songs of last year list.

Most Tool songs has been basically nursery rhymes over-stretched with 2-minute drum improvisations, random time signature changes, simple Drop-D riffs played at 0.25 speed while Maynard screams his soul for as long as possible to fill time. - Joeljohns249

5 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress. She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. ...read more.
6 Lil Uzi Vert Symere Woods, better known by his stage name Lil Uzi Vert, is an American hip hop recording artist and songwriter.

This guy is still relevant and popular? - Userguy44

7 Future

A strong contender to challenge Rebecca Black for the most amount of Auto-tune used up in a song. - Joeljohns249

He sounds like he has Down Syndrome lol. - RiverVibeZ

8 Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

Future's partner in crime when making auto-tune manufactured hits - Joeljohns249

9 Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and more.
10 Lil Baby

The Contenders

13 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

Sorry to hope on the notorious JB hatred on this site, but in hindsight it really doesn't help when he makes a sequel for the worst songs of all time. - Joeljohns249

I don't think Yummy is that overrated though it got high on the charts yes but that was more due to hype it does not seem like anyone actually likes the song. I predict it will not stick around. - Powell

14 Children of Bodom Children Of Bodom is a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the group currently consists of Alexi Laiho, Janne Wirman, Henkka Seppälä, Jaska Raatikainen and Daniel Freyberg.

This is actually a band I like. Was only put her because they elevated pretty high up on last year's best lists for their disappointing album. - Joeljohns249

15 Tyler, The Creator Tyler Gregory Okonma (born March 6, 1991), better known by his stage name Tyler, The Creator, is an American rapper, record producer, and music video director. ...read more.
