For me it would be:

Underrated - ...And Justice for All
Overrated - Master Of Puppets

-Metallica

Really, the album is great, but the actual song 'Master Of Puppets' is only very good, not legendary as so many people think. It's overused so much by people going "OMG Mutalaca r so great i luv master of puppetz lolol" and generally gets more praise than it's worth, in my opinion.

Also, St. Anger. The album. It's a lot more profound than the bandwagon gives the impression of. You just have to listen, and watch Some Kind of Monster (the DVD)

Yours, Pit?

I don't have a favourite band, or any bands I like with overrated songs

In fact, found one. Whilst they aren't my favourite band, Sigur Ros - Hoppipolla is definitely their most overrated.

And I guess you could say Bright Eyes - First Day of My Life, even though I'm possibly one of the ones overrating it.

Overrated - Meat Is Murder
Underrated - Oscillate Wildy

The only reason Meat is Murder is so popular is because its to do with vegetarianism (spelling/even a word?). Fair enough, it converted a lot of people, and it brings across a very smart message, but compared to other Smiths records it doesnt match for me.

Ha, same! Although I might be tempted to replace Estranged with Breakdown - but I think the guitar melody in Estranged clinches it

Although I also love Rage Against the Machine, and in that case I would say:

Overrated: Killing in the Name (hell of a song, but it's overplayed to the point where it has lost all it's meaning)
Under: Down Rodeo (mainly because it starts off sounding a bit like a U2 song, but then...you know...it becomes Rage again)
I can't think of a signature.

I believe that Don't Stop Believing is overrated. There are far better Journey songs out there.

In fairness, they are good songs but play it enough and it looses it's appeal in my opinion.

Smashing Pumpkins (not necessarily my top band but)

Over Rated: 1979
Under Rated: XYU

1979 was indeed a great song, and i'm sure it was sort of epic sounding when it came out, but it gets boring with only a few listens.

XYU was basically as insane as the Pumpkins could get back in the day. 7 minute song with tons of tempo/volume shifts. Pure 90's awesome.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

I'm gonna replace 'band' with 'artist' and say that for Rufus Wainwright:

Over-rated: Hallelujah - he didn't even write the damn song yet it's the only song most people have heard from him.
Under-rated: Dinner at Eight.

I can barely listen to Enter Sandman anymore. I have to occasional day when I'm on the bus and it comes on and I ****in' love it, but most of the time it's like: "meh"

Trapped Under Ice is a very good song, though, but is indeed very underrated an almost never heard of.

I only know 4 people who know Mastodon: me and rest of the guys from my band.

Other than that, I don't know many people who listen to the same bands I do, so I don't really know.
