The most overrated songs in history as selected by top music sites.
Listen to these songs on Rhapsody
Get hundreds of great playlists at the Rhapsody Radish…
You could have filled this list at least twice over just with Oasis songs.
And, yeah, don't fuck with The Fall!
who's fucking with the fall? the fuck? the fall is mighty and will destroy. the fall could lace up some boots, go on the pitch and beat manchester united at their own game, while cursing at your grandmother and tying flies into your underarm hairs. and you would fucking thank them for it. i hate you, whoever you are.
i don't think it's very fair to say they (Led Zeppelin) stole their music considering most was by accident that the lyrics matched, some were knowingly recycled but barely at all (they were small 4 word verses), but it was only that, the music is original the guitar work, everything.
Oh, and Stairway to Heaven's opening riff is *similar* to Taurus by Spirit, but think about all the riffs out there, do you really think they all sound nothing like each other and there are no *similar* riffs?
i agree with some of the list...but how can you have bohemian rhapsody and born to run on there?? both these songs are incredibly written and took real talent to arrange.
its nice to see someone who obviously doesnt know much about music berating some of the greatest songs in music history, i can only imagine what this guy listens to
This whole article could have been a Pink Floyd album and I would have agreed with it.
I cant agree with Bohemian Rhapsody either.
In fact: I don't agree with Hey Ya, Wonderwall, or Light My Fire either. your affirmation is absurd - how can you categorize words by genre? well, are there like 200 words that are most suitable for rock songs and ones that arent?
And about Hey Ya. The lyrics are simply...light. Its not a song you play when your doing soul searching, its something you listen to when you're in a funky mood. And music lovers should know by now: music is absolutely related to your mood, you just let it in.
the doors are amazing arnt all artist junkies of a form???
You said you could have included Stairway to Heaven, it should be #1.
dude, imagine is beautiful and fragile.
jim morrison did not write light my fire, and it was the first song the guitarist ever wrote.
and finally, i still havent found what im looking for is still an average song, but bono's little voice crack on 'I beleeve in... Kingdom cuhhuuume...' makes it all worthwhile.
the MOST OEVERRATED SONG OF AL TIME is Running with the Devil by Van Halen.
Are you kidding? The only overrated one here is American Pie. People at school used to sing it all the time so I figured it must be pretty good, but then I listen to it for myself and I found it to drag and was mediocre. So I agree on that one, but that's it. Guns N'Roses in my opinon is the most overrated band of all time (can't stand that guy's voice)AC/DC is overrated, and I think Green Day and Nickelback are as well. And these are only the rock acts of course.
"I want you to want me" by Cheap Trick
The fact that you consider Light My Fire overrated reveals a profound lack of...what? The mind boggles...Whatever it is, I don't want to listen to your rock collection. That's why you're critic, and not a creator.
Can't agree with number one, but purely because the reason it's so long is because it's not just a tribute to buddy holly, richie valens and the big bopper, but also a documentation of what else around the 60s caused the music to die (allegories for the beatles and the rolling stones are all in there). If you know what all the verses mean then it's not unnecessary time, and I personally appreciate how much thought and care went into it.
fuck,my favourite songs.damn.
