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

1 Billie Joe Armstrong Billie 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.
2 Paul Mccartney Sir 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.

He shouldn’t be below Billie Joe Armstrong and the only reason he is is because people voted without reading the title “Top 10 Rock Singers That Are a Bit Overrated But STILL SING WELL”. Don’t get me wrong, I think Billie Joe Armstrong is a good singer and a bit overrated, but Green Day has kind of faded over the years while The Beatles has been around for over 50 years and haven’t faded one bit. People need to learn that there is a fine line between “overrated” and “bad”, and when I call him overrated which is a fact if you think about it, just be aware that he’s still one of my favourite singers of all time. If I thought he was bad, I would’ve voted for him on Top 10 Singers That are Both Overrated and Bad and not on this. - 3DG20

3 Ivan L. Moody Ivan L . Moody, known by the pseudonym Ghost during his time with Motograter, is the lead vocalist for American groove metal band Five Finger Death Punch from Las Vegas, Nevada .
4 Aaron Lewis Aaron Lewis is an American musician, who is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and founding member of the rock group Staind, with whom he has released seven studio albums.
5 Adam Gontier Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

In Three Days Grace, absolutely. Not so much in Saint Asonia though considering there are still Three Days Grace fans that think he’s retired or something. - 3DG20

6 Brian Johnson Brian Johnson is an English singer and songwriter. Since 1980, he is the lead singer of the Australian rock band AC/DC, with whom he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. As of April 2016, Johnson is not participating in the remainder of the Rock or Bust World Tour due to hearing more.
7 Tyler Connolly Tyler Conolly was born August 26th 1975, he is a Canadian singer of the alternative rock band Theory of a Deadman, whom have realized five albums.
8 Jonny Hetherington

Overrated? This guy is underrated along with Art of Dying. - Soulstealer

9 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave more.

He was a good singer RIP Freddie.

10 Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington (March 20th, 1976 - July 20th, 2017) was an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor, best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also participated in side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 after a period of depression. more.

His singing voice isn't that good to be honest.

Again, one of my favourite singers, but Linkin Park does get a lot of hype, especially for “Hybrid Theory” and “Meteora”. (Not that I don’t understand why though) - 3DG20

The Contenders

11 Matt Walst Matt Walst born December 28th 1982, is a Canadian songwriter/singer that formed the alternative rock band My Darkest Days in 2005. That band got signed by Chad Kroger in 2010 and they released two albums. Members of the band left and after Adam Gontier left Three Days Grace Matt was chosen to replace more.

I don’t think he should be this high on the list. He may be a bit (just a little) overrated now, but if he didn’t join Three Days Grace, a lot of the praise he gets may not have been there because My Darkest Days wasn’t a very well known band, and please don’t think I’m calling anything bad. I think Matt is awesome! - 3DG20

12 James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.


13 Shaun Morgan Shaun Morgan Welgemoed, known publicly as Shaun Morgan, is a South African musician and singer for the post-grunge/alternative metal band Seether.

He has quite a raspy voice and sings great live.

14 Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his more.

He was good but Nirvana was kinda overrated. And his death was tragic still iconic though :3

15 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was an American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. more.
16 Jared Leto Jared Joseph Leto is an American actor, singer-songwriter, and director. He is well known for being the lead singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars.

No, Adam Gontier sounds 10 x better then Jared Leto in my opinion.

17 Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.
18 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

Not just because The Beatles was an extremely overrated band, but because he and Paul got the most attention in it and were even pretty overrated as solo artists. - 3DG20

19 Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath more.

Eh Ozzy really struggles to hit notes so I don't know about that.

20 Jonathan Davis Jonathan Howsmon Davis, also known as JD and JDevil, is an American musician best known as the leading vocalist and frontman of the nu metal band Korn.
21 Troy Sanders Troy Jayson Sanders is an American musician, singer, and songwriter best known as a member of the Atlanta, Georgia metal band Mastodon, in which he plays bass and shares lead vocal duties with guitarist Brent Hinds and drummer Brann Dailor.
22 Corey Taylor Corey Todd Taylor was born in December 8, 1973. He is an American musician, author, and actor best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the Nu-metal band Slipknot and hard rock/alternative metal band Stone Sour.

He’s got a decent voice and seems like a down to earth person, but boy is he overrated, especially for being in Slipknot. - 3DG20

23 David Draiman David Michael Draiman is an American songwriter and the vocalist for the band Disturbed as well as for the band Device.

He's ok I guess.

24 Brann Dailor Brann Timothy Dailor is an American drummer/singer best known as a member of the Atlanta, Georgia metal band Mastodon, in which he is the drummer, backing vocalist, lead vocalist and primary lyricist.
25 Amy Lee Amy Lynn Hartzler, known professionally as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter, classically trained pianist and composer. She is also the lead singer to the Arkansas band Evanescence.

She sure as hell can sing!

Amy Lee is an amazing singer, but I do find Evanescence a bit overrated. I’m also noticing how fans are making her a victim in everything, especially in the song “Call Me When You’re Sober”. - 3DG20
