Top Ten Rock Bands that Get the Most Annoying PraiseNuMetalManiak These are bands that have gotten way more praise than they need.
The Top Ten
They made Smells Like Teen Spirit the most overrated song of all time and they are called the greatest band ever just for that one song - MetalWorldOrder
They are literally called the greatest band ever for just one song - christangrant
That's a fact...And the reason? One song. - Ananya
I think Nirvana should be in the top 3, top 5 at least. - Metal_Treasure
Sludgy unlistenable music, annoying vocals and cruddy rapping make this one band whose constant praise completely escapes me. - Mrveteran
The first album wasn't that bad, it was actually good. But the rest are just unlistenable and torture. - Mumbizz01
They have a good ranking on best metal bands too...Reason? Illiteracy - Ananya
I think they are a great band yes - musicgreenV 2 Comments
I really hate this band, It's so overrated for one song, It's really so annoying - " I love Amy! " " Bring me to life is the best song ever! " - Ananya
I wish Bring me To Life wasn't so overdone. - lavashooter
For literally one song. - NuMetalManiak
Seriously they are so praised, they are more overrated than Nirvana. - NuMetalManiak
Alright mainstream rock music, but nowhere near as good as many people would claim. - Mrveteran
I so much agree with this. - Metal_Treasure
Like Jimmy Page has been stated one of the fastest guitarists. - zxm
Sorry, but Scott Stapp sucks as a vocalist. He's the only member of Creed I don't want to listen to over and over again. Alter Bridge was way better anyways as the former Creed members showcased more creativity in their musicianship than they did in Creed. - NuMetalManiak
This band doesn't get that much of praises. Bono is on top of "Worst Rock Voices" list. I don't think it's a praise. - zxm
I'm starting to see Pantera on TheTopTens more often than I am seeing X-Japan, and that was a LONG time ago when X-Japan was literally on the tops of music lists on this site and that was annoying. Seriously, stop making Pantera the next X-Japan. - NuMetalManiak
Yes, fight me. Nickelback is on here for the amount of praise they are getting lately, just because of the amount of hate you are seeing (which is a lot slimmer than the amount of praise in reality) pisses you off. - NuMetalManiak
They get too much hate to be honest a lot of the hate they get is not deserved.
What praise? I thought they were one of the most hated bands in recent memory. - Mrveteran
They are actually bashed. - Lucretia
Recently there has been kind of "a war" about this band. But I let it go. Neither I am defending nor attacking this band. I don't care about this band's reputation anymore. - zxm
I think they deserve the praise - jack2244
For example - Highway to Hell has been called one of the greatest riffs of all time. But no one ever noticed All Right Now of Free's. both of these riffs sound very similar. Then why one should always get the praise while other one is totally unnoticed. - zxm
One of the most generic metal bands I have ever heard. And poppy as hell. Overpraised for nothing. - Metal_Treasure
I think I finally found a band that you and me disagree with. I actually love Ghost but I consider them to be more Rock. I respect your opinion though. - cjWriter1997
CjWriter1997, I am glad we are on the same page again - I hate the Grammys, too. Especially the Metal Grammys - they have been a disgrace to metal for 30 years. Metal community and metal musicians should withdraw metal category from the Grammys asap. Metal Grammys only give metal a bad name - Ghost song was presented as the best of metal released in 2015 when it's not. I even made a list about it long ago - Top 10 Proofs Metal Grammy Awards Are Untrustworthy and Misleading.
Back to my opinion about Ghost: their Metal Grammy isn't the only sign they are annoyingly overpraised though. - Metal_Treasure
CjWriter1997, I respect your opinion, too. Here are some of the reasons I don't like Ghost:
As you said, they are more like a rock band but they won the 2016 Grammy for Best Metal Performance. For the song Cirice. What is so mindblowing here - the guitar solo, drumming or vocals? Or its complexity and epicness? This song is nowhere near the Best Metal Performance from 2015 albums. Not even sure it's a metal song - the only metal element is the riff, which is... a close variation of the intro to Raining Blood by Slayer.
Next, their song Ritual - one of their most popular songs, also considered one of their best. The metal element is the riff, which is... a ripoff of Symphony Of Destruction by Megadeth.
But Megadeth never got a metal Grammy... I can go on but you got my idea. - Metal_Treasure
The Grammy's never were a trustworthy award show for metal bands anyway. Somehow Dystopia is Metal but Hardwired is not? Never liked the Grammy's. Felt like it was all corporate and made to please the masses. And didn't Crawling by Linkin Park also won Best Metal Performance once? Yeah, not sure about that one. - cjWriter1997
Ew Cold Play...
A case where the overhyping ruins the band. On their own, they're perfectly fine but due to the endless overpraising by both critics and fans, it has become nearly impossible to listen to this band without all the baggage of how you either must love them or don't appreciate real music or something like that. - Mrveteran
