Top Ten Most Overrated Songs by Good Artists

I do not hate all this songs but they are all overrated

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

As long as We Will Rock You exists, there is no way that this is the most overrated Queen song - kempokid

Well this is the only possible variant to vote all the other songs are good or artists are bad! Sorry but the whole list sucks! Gonna add 10 songs then remix it tomorrow! - Fan_of_Good_Music

My first favourite song by Queen, followed by March Of Black Queen, Innuendo, Prophet's Song, and Show Must Go On. - malamJONES

This song is great but gets more than it deserves. I like Stone Cold Crazy a lot more. - Songsta41

2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Good song, but is it Nirvana's best? Not to me. - Metarock

It's not bad, just overplayed and overrated. But I think it is Nirvana's most popular song because a lot of teenagers who dictate what's on the radio can relate to it, because of the angsty I hate the way the popular kids are sort of thing - ToptenPizza

I hate this song

A overrated song by an overrated artist

I thought this list was about overrated songs by GOOD artists.

Kayne West ruins the whole song - BigBrotherSucks

I'm not a fan of Katy Perry. So yeah - EpicJake

5 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Rolling Stones

Sure it has a GREAT riff, but other than there nothing to prove it better than other good Rolling Stones songs

6 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

If a drunk monkey were to write a poem, that poem would probably be genius compared to the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven, which are a bunch of incoherent nonsense. Jimmy Page and Robert Plant tried so desperately to be philosophical, and they failed so hard.

Led Zeppelin has so many great songs, several of which are better than this one. Hell, Stairway isn't even in my top 3 of best songs from the album. - Zach808

Hell no overrated.

The guitar solo is really good, but other than that it is probably at best. Led Zeppelin's 3rd best song

7 Halo - Beyonce

Beyonce is great but this is not even her top 3 best, her best is Crazy In Love in my opinion - venomouskillingmachine

She's horrible

This is not her best - BigBrotherSucks

Well, I've never liked her.


8 A Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay
9 Give Me Love - Ed Sheeran

This song goes on for too long - BigBrotherSucks

10 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

I like Beat It way better - venomouskillingmachine

So overrated - Th3Zm0nst3r

The Contenders

11 Gold Digger - Kanye West
12 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day
13 I'm With You - Avril Lavigne

Damn! Her worst and VERY overrated song's Hello Kitty. Did you really forgot about that?!?!?! - Fan_of_Good_Music

Complicated was much better - BigBrotherSucks

14 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

I love Journey but this is not even close to being their best song

Just in my city (Detroit) except I live in metro. - mmarce445

15 Wonderwall - Oasis
16 Lose Yourself - Eminem

This is not even in the top 3 Eminem songs, Stan, Role Model, Brain Damage, are all better than this. (this is still great though) - venomouskillingmachine

Ha, it said good artists - Blackzelot101

So overrated it is not funny. And I don't like Eminem.

Nah this ain't overrated.

17 All of the Stars - Jackie Evancho
18 Gold - Marina & the Diamonds
19 Paint It Black - Rolling Stones

It's a good song, but I really don't understand it being above "Satisfaction". - PetSounds

Are you kidding me? This is a great song! - nintendofan126

I love this song! - Pony

Rolling Stones are great but not this song - BigBrotherSucks

20 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce
21 Everywhere - Michelle Branch
22 We Will Rock You - Queen

I love Queen, but this song is more overplayed and overrated than Bohemian rhapsody. - mmarce445

23 Work - Rihanna

NEVER should've been a #1 hit.

24 Mirrors - Justin Timberlake

This song is actually okay,not his best or probably not his worst song, by the way,this song is way overrated and repetitive. Not trying to be rude to him, he still seems like a nice guy and has an amazing voice, but I'll say this song is actually okay (in my opinion). Don't hate it,but it's way overrated and repetitive!

This is differently not his best - BigBrotherSucks

Hey, how can this song be overrated it deserves to be in top ten songs.

25 Pon de Replay - Rihanna
26 Friday to Sunday - Justice Crew

They have had 4 better songs than this Boom Boom Best Night Everybody and Que Sera it defferenty does no derseve number 1 - BigBrotherSucks

27 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne is a pretty good artist, but hello kitty makes me want to rip my ears out - ToptenPizza

Yeah, the song is pretty aggravating...

28 I'm Just a Kid - Simple Plan
29 Enter Sandman - Metallica
30 S&M - Rihanna

This song is not overrated. If anything this song is underrated and deserves more attention. This is the best song by Rihanna.

31 Little Black Submarines - Black Keys

Gold On the Ceiling and Lonely Boy were way better - BigBrotherSucks

32 Ass Like That - Eminem

Actually Zach808, this song, in fact, is liked. Not for the lyrics, but for the production. But yes, even as someone who would give Encore an 8/10, this song is utter tripe. - WonkeyDude98

Overrated? Hell no. No one likes this song. Even defenders of Encore don't even try to defend this turd. - Zach808

Eminem has been one of the best rappers ever since 1997 to 2011. This was 1 of his worst songs. While I think FACK is the worst, it was never played (for a reason) but this was all over the radio and it's from the perspective of a puppet dog. Nough said

Eminem is just bleh

33 Highway to Hell - AC/DC
34 Home - Gym Class Heroes
35 Toot It and Boot It - YG

YG is a good artist? - Pony

36 Gucci Gucci - Kreayshawn

Kreayshawn is NOT a good artist. Lots of people even think she's not a good artist.

37 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

This needs to be in the top 5! There's WAY harder and darker Ozzy songs than this.

•Mr. Tinkertrain
•Not Going Away
•Thunder Underground
•Shot In the Dark

38 In the End - Linkin Park

Because It's a very good song! Maybe One of the best alternative song of all time - peyman_eun

Hey, this ain't overrated! this is the best rap metal song ever. #peter_angelov

39 Kisses Down Low - Kelly Rowland
40 Ain't It Fun - Paramore

I'm a pretty big fan of Paramore,but this is probably their worst song.

41 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift
42 Elastic Heart - Sia

Not that bad but definitely a sublevel song for her... - Fan_of_Good_Music

43 West Coast - Lana Del Rey
44 Yellow - Coldplay

I love Coldplay and I love this song.

45 Burning Gold - Christina Perri
46 Master of Puppets - Metallica
47 Boombox - Laura Marano
48 Paranoid Android - Radiohead
49 Dark Horse - Katy Perry


50 Run the World (Girls) - Beyonce
