I think this is quite subjective, as I happen to like MGMT, Muse and Radiohead. But in my opinion, Coldplay, Britney Spears, Madonna, Katy Perry and (to some extent) Kings of Leon are all fairly overrated.

Also: Must use the phrase "piss rainbows" more often biggrin

Umm...Nickleback? I don't know if they're really overrated; I just know that all of their songs sound exactly the same to me and therefore it counts in my mind.

Not a band, but Lady Gaga. I'm sorry but she's mediocre at best and yet everyone seems to think she's just amazing.

All bands under Fueled by Ramen. I must admit, I do like a lot of music from that label... but it annoys me how they are all so assimilated style-wise...

Like PATD. I liked their original music... when it was that kitschy old late 80's patchy synth... Fueled by Ramen messed with their sound and style A LOT...

Paramore sounds like a Female-Fronted Fall-out boy... which sounds like a loud, less synthy PATD...

Coldplay.
U2 (i think bono is a massive wanker).
Nickelback
Any and all Disney bands/singers including but not limited to Miley Cyrus, Johnas Brothers, Hilary Duff (is she Disney? Her anyway, even if she's not).
The Strokes - seriously, saw them at a gig and everyone was going crazy for them while my friend and I stood wondering if we were watching the same band!

That's it...for now!

:O BMTH are awesome!

Muse, I only like one song 'Can't take my eyes off you' , ironically a cover, the rest are crap. I don't see the appeal personally.
Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, Hillary Duff.....all should burn!
Lady Ga-Ga (how is she the next Madonna?)....crappy!
Coldplay.

I hate all of these bands, they're far too overrated and should be shot at the nearest possible time.

How dare you? MGMT are my GODS. With or without the hype, they are fucking good musicians.

Maybe Kings of Leon. I am a big fan of them though. Don't listen to their new album, 'tis shite compared to...
Because of the Times.
Aha Shake Heartbreak.
Youth and Young Manhood.

They are a very good band, but have recently sold out a bit. It makes me sad :(

This thread has made me sad.

Paramore. I used to like them because everyone else did, and I was like, "Oh, I must conform to non-conformity!" (This was about two years ago.) Now I really don't.

And KoL.

Greenday are overrated in my opinion. They're OK, but that's it.
And U2. Wankers.

Looooove The Presets XD

Anyone that has ever come out of Australian Idol ever, is 535673267587 times overrated.

Also agree with Calliope about anyone to come out of Fueled by Ramen. And Fall Out Boy are total shite live.

Evanescence. Mostly because they suck in concert, and their second album, except maybe 'Call Me When You're Sober', was shit.

Wouldn't you have to have listened to all rappers to know if they're overrated?

Granted, I don't have much of an attention span for rap or hip-hop, but I do recognize that there are performers wthin the genre whose music can honestly be argued as being 'good' (which in my mind means it can be defended on an artistic and intellectual level--not just a catchy beat or piece of lyric).

True, there are artists in rap/hip-hop, like any other genre, who are overrated. I tend to believe it's the douche bag types who sing about the expensive brands they buy or who glorify abusing women. However, to dismiss an entire mass of artists within the genre because some of the more popular performers do sing about such things on a constant basis, or because you just don't like said genre in general, is ignorant.

^Agree. I was rather surprised by that post, it's not really a genre I listen to but have you ever considered that a certain amount of lyrical expertise and dexterity go into it, and some of the really good rappers can be incredibly funny and sympathetic? Besides, Bob Dylan's 'Subterrenean Homesick Blues' was the forerunner of rap and that's a song and a half. Paramore are pants though.

I think it is inevitable that any band that reaches super, SUPER stardom is a little bit overrated. No-one is actually that brilliant, all the time, regardless. For example I really really like Radiohead but I think some of their fans are a bit mental.

Having said that, I remain in the dark as to why Girls Aloud have as many hit singles as they do. They all sound the same and it's not even a good same.

It's been said loads, but Coldplay is incredibly overrated.
Where I live the Jonas Brothers are the thing. Yuck, most overrated band ever.

^and playing off that, Miley Cyrus. She can't actually sing *that* well, she's just a teenager with a good set of lungs on her who happened to have the right parents at the right time.
