Top 10 Reasons Why Linkin Park Is OverratedMontyPython
The Top Ten
Yeah definitely true bands like ACDC, Metallica, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Evanescence and even Queen have more skill then Linkin Park.
This one is so true, they claim they are legends, they are an average BAND.
They have proved to pull of more genres than most bands. I disagree. it takes a lot of skill to be able to suddenly turn from metal to pop to rock to etc. they are a skilled band or else they wouldn't even be in the top of the 00's billboard. don't get me wrong I like acdc and all that but linkin park is a diffrent time. triving from 00's to even today. a lot of there song are insperational as well like hands held high or even roads untravled. this band brought me into the world of rock, and again they are on top of the charts for a reason.
Achieving more actually makes something more overrated (if we're not taking the quality into count) - Alkadikce
Eh? - Userguy44
Linkin Park is overrated because Guns N Roses has achieved more? How does that even make Sense? - Cheese567
It makes sense because Linkin Park are claimed to be the best thing that ever happened to music even though these other artists have worked harder and have achieved more in their careers. How does that not make sense? - MontyPython
Not if Michael Jackson wasn't overrated... - Alkadikce
Do you mean Chester? He was no Michael Jackson but still amazing. He wasn't bad at all. - Userguy44
What kind of a point is this, it's like comparing Elvis to nirvana which are two completely different things with completely different styles. - Cheese567
I agree, Linkin Park WERE good, first two albums were great. But ever since then it's been one disappointment after the other. A Thousand Suns and Living Things were laughable. They also played with Paul McCartney and Jay Z, obviously McCartney was the star. - IronSabbathPriest
Listen to the songs from The Hunting Party and tell me that they are still sellouts.V 3 Comments
If I hear One More Light every time it's annoying, but their good songs aren't. - Userguy44
So everyone is overrated who has better songs than the most famous? - Alkadikce
Somewhere I belong and One step closer are very good too. - Userguy44
I'm not a die hard LP fan and respect peoples opinions if they don't like them. - Userguy44
And that's the main reason people will have for emptily bashing this list. When has there been a supportive argument for why LP are unique? I personally haven't seen one, apart from "They're awesome" fifty times over. - PositronWildhawk
The fans of this band are not unlike the Slayer fans. Extremely dedicated, and will not take a negative comment. - IronSabbathPriest
Not all of them - ParkerFang
They couldn't have a worse singer than him. And does it matter that he isn't the best singer ever? Chester was Linkin Park! - Userguy44
In my opinion they are.Now watch all the wrong generation kids get butthurt - DarkBoi-X
They are better than Dread Zipperlin AKA Talentless Hacks who plagerize so much. Led Zeppelin is a disgrace to music - TheDarkOne_221b
They’re better than Led Zeppelin. Fight me! - Userguy44
Linkin Park will not be better than these two great bands. - McKing1003V 3 Comments
Green Day is a far better band in comparison. The singer isn't great but he isn't like a overrated pariah that gets attention for only one song (Looking at you In The End) and has a lot more accomplished and is overall better. I really don't see how people consider Linkin Park the best band of the 2000's, if anything their the most overrated of the 2000's.
I could name 45 alternative bands way better then Linkin Park - Mumbizz01
No they’re not! - Userguy44
Listen to A Line In The Sand, Guilty All The Same, and Given Up and tell me if that's easy - TheDarkOne_221b
Same with Nirvana. - Userguy44
He was good enough! - Userguy44
This is true and sad at the same time Mostly true
So RATM and Faith No More are bad too? - Userguy44

2. The typical movie soundtrack filler band.
3. They can get really annoying to hear about over time.
2. Guns N Roses, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, etc have achieved more.
3. Their songs are nothing to write home about.
