Top 10 Things That Are Really Good But Also Ludicrously Overrated


The Top Ten

1 The Beatles

Over rated how? Is anybody seriously saying they are not the top rock-genre music artists of all time?
Of course they are not everyone's favorite, and nothing can be proven to be the best in any artistic field.
Total sales, chart performance, enduring popularity, and influence in the worlds of music, culture, and the overall social fabric, no other musicians are close.
Nothing says you have to like them at all, and if you prefer metal, rap or whatever that's fine too, but just because you like some other act or genre better does not diminish their achievements.

I agree a lot. Especially their older stuff. (Before Rubber Soul) - IronSabbathPriest

You're ignoring how they affected the music industry, the culture, the youth of their time, songwriting, musical trends and musicians for generations and on... - Billyv

I'm not sure many people on here actually know what overrated means, because they keep using success and popularity as an argument against overratedness. Let me help everyone out here. Overrate: to rate, value, or estimate too highly. People who dislike something popular will think that it's overrated the more popular it is, so trying to use that to help your case does nothing and implying that success defines how good something is is a fallacy.

This being said, I think The Beatles are stupidly overrated. Top rock band of all time? Yeah, right, not even close. - dubsinthetubs

Michael Jackson is never overrated

4 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

I Agree This Show Is VERY Overrated. It's Not A Bad Show, But I Just Can't Stand The Fanbase.

I love the show, but the fanbase SUCKS big time

Everyone ever: I Like The Show, But Hate The Fanbase - purpleyoshi98

5 Dragon Ball Dragon Ball Dragon Ball is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. It made anime popular in America and is based on the manga of the same name by Akira Toriyama. It was dubbed in English on Cartoon Networks Toonami block and still has many fans today.

This is so true. #Overrated - iiKyodaiKickz

Overrated is not how I would describe DBZ.

6 Undertale

I think the critical response was about right, but the fan base is a bit crazy. No where close to the worst, though. - Yoshilord

One of the most overrated indie games, but I love the gameplay and music... I would give it an 9/10, the fanbase is crap. - PugLlama

I love undertale it's my favorite game but I'll admit the fanbase is a little too much. - lucario_ninetales

There's much better mecha anime than it in my opinion. - PerfectImpulseX

8 The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time
9 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.
10 Nirvana 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.

Yes, they are overrated - they aren't even the best grunge band, and Kurt is a good singer but not the best grunge singer (Chris Cornell and Layne Staley are way better).
I think Nirvana became the most popular band among the grunge bands because their songs are not very complex (compared to the other grunge bands) and more people can relate to Nirvana songs. Nirvana is the pop/mainstream version of grunge. Their musicianship is average, nothing exceptional - unlike Alice In Chains and Soundgarden. - Metal_Treasure

Great band, but no where near the best. Not even the best grunge band in my book. They have a few impressive songs, but some are so bad they're insulting. - Alpha101

Nirvana's definitely overrated and to be honest I kinda like Alice in Chains more.

90% of Nirvana - PositronWildhawk

A lot of her recent stuff is OK, but her collab with Nicki Minaj and a small bit of her new album are somewhat forgettable or terrible. - Swellow
