Top 10 Rock Singers That Are a Bit Overrated But Still Sing Well
Basically rock singers that are a bit too popular bit still have a good voice to sing with. All genres are allowed. And the singer has to be still living that's all really.
The Top Ten
1Billie Joe ArmstrongBillie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.
2Paul MccartneySir James Paul McCartney is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer . With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .
This does not make any sense, he is the biggest selling and most successful musician of all time, somebody who has accomplished that can't be overrated, unless you mean he is overrated today because he is 74 years old. He has done more than you ever will have when you are 74, or anybody else will for that matter.
The Beatles the band he sang for are a bit overrated. He himself is a bit overrated does not mean I got anything against him? No of course not! And age really? He might be old but he's at least better than our modern Pop stars.
You care not "over-rated" if you actually are the biggest seller of all time. The reverse is true; anybody who thinks they are better is over-rating themselves.
McCartney has skated on the Beatles' fame for the past 45 years. Since the split, he's offered no more than sappy pop.
