Top 10 Most Overrated Songs on Good Albums

SomePersonYouHate
Overrated songs from decent albums. None of these songs are bad but they get too much attention on a certain album by said artist.

The Top Ten

1 In the End - Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

Pretty obvious why this is number one... it's the most overrated but not terrible song from Hybrid Theory. - SomePersonYouHate

Good but I agree that there are muxh better LP songs.-LitSavage

2 Freak on a Leash - Follow the Leader - Korn

I can tell lots of people will disagree with me on this but Follow the Leader's a decent album but song is the most overrated song on the album. - SomePersonYouHate

It's their most overrated song in my opinion - EliHbk

3 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine

The most overrated and overplayed song from their debut album. - SomePersonYouHate

4 Stan - The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem

It's a decent album but I think this song gets more attention than other songs on the album. - SomePersonYouHate

5 Remember the Name - The Rising Tied - Fort Minor

Not a bad song but it gets more attention than other songs on the album. - SomePersonYouHate

6 Master of Puppets - Master of Puppets - Metallica

The most overrated song from the Master of Puppets album in all honesty but still a great album. - SomePersonYouHate

7 About a Girl - Bleach - Nirvana

Bleach is a decent album but honestly this song overshadows other good songs from the album. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Bring Me to Life - Fallen - Evanescence

Honestly mediocre compared to the other songs from Evanescence's otherwise solid debut album. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - American Idiot - Green Day

It's a little generic but not anywhere near bad, but pretty overrated - EliHbk

The most overrated song from AI but not bad any means. - SomePersonYouHate

Good but very overrated! I think they've had FAR better! Go and listen to "Tell me when it's time to say I Love You" and you'll say this is meh!

10 What I've Done - Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park

Minutes to Midnight is quite honestly my favorite LP album and What I've Done is the most overrated song from album. - SomePersonYouHate

The Contenders

11 Metropolis, Pt. 1: The Miracle and the Sleeper - Images and Words - Dream Theater
12 Sugar We're Goin Down - From Under the Cork Tree - Fall Out Boy
13 Victim of Changes - Judas Priest
14 What I Got - Sublime - Sublime
15 Smoke on the Water - Machine Head - Deep Purple

This is the album that has Highway Star, Space Truckin', and Lazy on it, and people still only listen to Smoke on the Water? Give me a break. - Gg2000

16 Tom Sawyer - Moving Pictures - Rush

There is more to this album than just Tom Sawyer. Listen to Red Barchetta or The Camera Eye. - Gg2000

17 Light My Fire - The Doors - The Doors

People who only listen to "Light My Fire" are missing out on great stuff like "Break On Through", "The Crystal Ship", "Back Door Man", and of course, "The End". - Gg2000

18 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin II - Led Zeppelin

The entire album is amazing from start to finish. I'm sick of the fact that "Whole Lotta Love" gets the brunt of the airplay. - Gg2000

19 Pride and Joy - Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

The one song that gets played more often than the rest of the album. Listen to Lenny, Rude Mood, or Testify if you want to be impressed. - Gg2000

20 Another Brick in the Wall (Part Two) - The Wall - Pink Floyd

Not the best song on The Wall by any means. - Gg2000

21 Paranoid Android - OK Computer - Radiohead
22 Creep - Pablo Honey - Radiohead
23 Street Spirit (Fade Out) - The Bends - Radiohead
