  • Overrated:
    Taylor Swift
    John Mayer
    Metallica
    Pink Floyd
    Celine Dion
    Styx (just because REO Speedwagon were much better but got equated to Styx)
    ... List can go on and on

    Not counting the likes of Selena Gomez and her lesbian ex Beiber because they are not even worth being called singers. Actually, neither is Taylor Swift.

    • Thank you so much @LittleSally. Let the real music live on. Sad that many of the legends and icons are passing away one by one.

    • True... :(

    • This is my argument. People very quickly jump to the verdict of saying "oh I love XYZ". My question to them: "Do you have all their albums? Have you even heard a single CD from start to end? Do you want to listen to it again FROM START TO END?".

What Guys Said 13

  • The most overrated: Kanye West

    He's got "some" good songs and just two "good", great if you want albums. Out of that all the succes and awards he's got doesn't reflects what he as musician is.

    The most underrated (talking about kind of pop artists) : Madeon

    Started making music at 11, became famous around his 16 by entering and winning some remix contests. His music is unique, catchy, nice and even pop and cool. Now he's 21 and relased a great album completely produced by him. His music is appart of the rest of pop music nowdays. He's not just another electro/pop producer, his music is made of complex musical theory and also complex produccion techniques, which results into a very alive music full of feelings. At his 21 he has visited several countries and performed in many festivals around the world, even so he is not well recognized. Pop music would be credible If he was the top on the lists. I think his music is the sound of these times, it's the sound of my youth, not a better way to explain it.

    • Ha-ha. Yeah. I could never hear through a complete song from Dylan.

  • I mostly listen to underrated artists, but that's because electronic music is not so popular...

    • Madonna had her own place and style in the 80s. She lost that after that. The albums became boring as hell. Now, her songs are crap but she manages to attract people because her shows are (supposedly) like Broadway.

  • Justin Bieber, overrated. Timmy Yuro (Female Italian pop singer of the 60's) under-rated.

  • Overrated: ADELE, someone please shut her up.
    Underrated: where to begin? well, let's say David Lynch. He's not meant to aesthetically please the public, which in turn doesn't really get that.
