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

I love the show, but the fanbase SUCKS big time

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

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. ...read 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.

21 Frozen

Ludicrously overrated? Yes. Horrible, horrible worst movie ever? Not really.

It's really not as terrible as so many people are making it out to be, but I'm not going to argue it's overrated status.

I don't understand why people love this movie, but I don't understand why people hate it either. Good movie but seriously overhyped. - Mrveteran

I never got what makes them that legendary.
The Beatles, Elvis, Led Zeppelin, Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan - those are artists I personally may not listen to all too often because they are just not my subjective style, but I understand why they have such a huge status and are that important, revolutionary and influential.
But I don't really get the appeal of the Rolling Stones. They have some catchy songs, but there were other rock bands around that time that seem to be so much more creative and unique. - Martin_Canine
