Most Oversaturated Rock/Metal Bands on TheTopTens

I’ve done oversaturated rock and metal songs, but I haven’t done bands.

The Top Ten

1 Nirvana Nirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. more.

They're overrated, yes. But I wouldn't say they Kurt Cobain couldn't write or play that well. The lyrics did speak to a generation of early 90s kids. And the vocal notes Kurt sings on the chorus of Smells Like Teen Spirit are higher than what Bruce Dickinson sings on The Trooper. (It's a high B I believe)

But I'm still not a big fan. - IronSabbathPriest

I prefer Bruce's technique too. Just pointing it out that Kurt had talent, that's all. - IronSabbathPriest

Kurt Cobain couldn’t sing, write lyrics, or play guitar well at all, and the music sucked. They’re mediocre, overrated, and overplayed.

2 The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented more.

This one almost goes without saying. They’re really nothing special, there’s many, many bands better than they are and they’re so overplayed. John Lennon wasn’t that talented and he was a mediocre vocalist with weak singing. The other members hated each other and they went on to have better solo careers. They have a few songs I like and that’s it, those songs are: Revolution 9, Strawberry Fields Forever, Eleanor Rigby And a few others that I forgot because The Beatles aren’t very memorable either.
If I hear “Hey Jude” one more time...

3 Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

"They've got some good tunes, but they're a bit too queeney for me"
-Liam Gallagher - IronSabbathPriest

I’m a fan, but I’m not a giant fan or even a big fan. Freddy Mercury’s constant high notes get on my nerves, I get that you can sing high notes, Freddie! That doesn’t mean you have to do it all of the time!
They’re also just very overplayed, especially Bohemian Rhapsody. I can’t even take the song seriously. I always end up laughing at it. I like them, but they’re overplayed.

4 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

I like them but they’re oversaturated. Hail To The King sucked, but at least it had a few saving graces.

5 Slayer Slayer is an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, formed in 1981 by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King. They rose to fame with their 1986 album Reign in Blood, and is credited as one of the big four of thrash metal bands, the others being Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax. more.

Really? In the top ten best metal bands? They’re probably the worst in the big four of thrash metal, and almost all of their 90’s output sucked. Repentless is one of the few good albums since Seasons In The Abyss.

6 AC/DC AC/DC are a Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014 . They were fronted by Bon Scott until his untimely death due to alcohol poisoning in 1979, after which they hired Brian Johnson more.

They’re repetitive and they lack variety. Still one of the better bands on the list, though.

7 Tool Tool is an American progressive/alternative/post-metal band, that was formed in 1990. more.

Lateralus shouldn’t be as high as it is on the “Best Progressive Metal Songs” list, every Dream Theater And Queensrÿche epic is better than that song.

8 Black Sabbath Black Sabbath were a Heavy Metal band formed in Birmingham, England in 1968 by guitarist and songwriter Tony Iommi, singer John "Ozzy" Osbourne, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward. more.

I love Sabbath, but I’m tired of seeing them on every best list. I definitely don’t think they deserve to be above Judas Priest and Megadeth on the “Best Metal Bands” list.

9 Alice In Chains Alice in Chains is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987 by guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell and original lead vocalist Layne Staley.

Layne Stayley is an overrated singer and Man In The Box is overplayed. If I had to put the big four of grunge from best to worst it would go: Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Nirvana.

10 Slipknot Slipknot is an American Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror inspired masks. more.

They suck so baaad...
