Top 10 Most Overrated Rock Songs of the 1990s

The 90's had even more overrated rock songs then the 90's imo. Anyway let's count em' down! I got nothing against these songs but they got too much attention in the 90's.

The Top Ten

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

400 million views on YouTube alone and with lyrics like "Hello, hello here we are now entertain us! " and Kurt's grunge voice. This song was very popular in the 90's making it very overrated. Hell it was even more overrated then Rooster, Man in the Box and Thunderstruck combined! It's not a bad song but rather one that received way too much attention.

580 Million views on Youtube.

YES! I pretty much agree on this being on first.just listen the lyrics
Hello,hello,hello,hello,how low,how low,
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido

weird lyrics.even though the riffs and solo are awesome but still overrated - zxm

2 Thunderstruck - AC/DC
3 Creep - Radiohead

4 Basket Case - Green Day
5 All Apologies - Nirvana
6 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine
7 Would? - Alice in Chains

The Contenders

11 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers
12 The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring
13 When I Come Around - Green Day

I was either going to include When I Come Around or Basket Case. But eh both are in their own level of overrated. This song isn't bad but it did get too much attention in the 90's.

NO,its UNDERRATED,Basket Case is overrated - zxm

14 All the Small Things - Blink 182

No its NOT overrated - zxm
