Top 10 Most Overrated Rock Songs of the 2000s

I got nothing against these songs but their kinda overrated.

The Top Ten

1 In the End - Linkin Park In the End - Linkin Park

A lot more edgy than actually good. - Jackamalio

It's a good song but good god guys, it's overrated as hell

This song was the reason I got into early-2000's alt rock. I'm afraid I have to disagree. Never met a single person who said they didn't like it. - BKAllmighty

Just way too overrated...

2 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed Down With the Sickness - Disturbed

I really like Disturbed but I just think there are so many better songs that they made that are a lot better than this - HoovyTheUnicorn

Really bland chrous of "Are you f-ing down with the sickness? " yet somehow it's Distured's most popular song just wow.

3 Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

Really overrated, even more then I Hate Everything About You which is quite a accomplishment.

4 Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace

This song is better than I Hate Everything About You by light years though. - Soulstealer

It's a good song, but a highly overrated one. With more AMV's, GMV's and fanmade music videos I've known for a song. It is Three Days Grace's second most popular song but their is only one song more overrated than this one.

5 Yellow - Coldplay

Coldplay is overrated. Not just this song. This one I agree with. - BKAllmighty

Yes Coldplay is really overrated.Each every song of their's has the same kind of music and the same structureoThey're boring and fangirls are annoying - Jay_07

6 21 Guns - Green Day

Not a bad song but it gets a bit too much attention.

Could be overrated but still one of the best songs of 2000s - zxm

How is this overrated. boulevard of broken dreams has more attention then this - Th3Zm0nst3r

7 Last Resort - Papa Roach

Don't see how it's so good it ranks as high as two on Best rock songs of the 2000's. It's overrated to the core, and way too overplayed.

8 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

It isn't that sad.

Overrated 2.0

9 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

I actually like this song a lot, I don’t think it’s overrated. No one I know at least has ever heard of this song. But I do prefer A7X’s earlier stuff.

10 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

Extremely overrated and not very good song of the 2000s. - Soulstealer

The Contenders

11 Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Why isn't this higher? This song is the most overrated Red hot Chili peppers song ever!

12 Chop Suey - System of a Down

Overrated to a huge extant and overplayed.

13 Crawling - Linkin Park
14 One Step Closer - Linkin Park
15 Bad Girlfriend - Theory of a Deadman
16 Paralyzer - Finger Eleven

There are so many good songs on here that completely stomp all over modern pop and rap music (which is almost universally awful). Why are we wasting our energy attacking good music when there's so much Top 40 crap out there to pull apart? - BKAllmighty

One I'm not attacking this music, two these songs get too much attention doesn't mean I hate them. Lastly I think you're acting like quite the bigot.

17 The Reason - Hoobastank

Do I really need to explain this song?

18 Numb - Linkin Park
19 Fake It - Seether
20 I Hate Everything About You - Three Days Grace

As a person that likes Three Days Grace this song is horribly overrated, they have many better songs than this one. - Soulstealer

21 I'm Not Okay - My Chemical Romance
22 New Divide - Linkin Park
23 It's Been Awhile - Staind

A good song but a very overrated one.

Not an overrated song and Great band. - Soulstealer

24 American Idiot - Green Day
25 Blurry - Puddle of Mudd

This song deserves the credit. - Soulstealer
