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

This is the main song that is mentioned.

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 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

2009. enough said.

5 Basket Case - Green Day
6 All Apologies - Nirvana

The Newcomers

The Contenders

11 The Unforgiven - Metallica
12 Cult of Personality - Living Colour

This song is
A) not overrated
B) not a 90s song, it came out in 1988
C) is a GREAT SONG! (despite the sloppy guitar solos)

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

People who don't listen to Blink 182 know this one.

No its NOT overrated - zxm

It's the Basket Case of Blink 182 way too overrated even more then What's My Age Again?
