I'm going with post-90s Green Day. Their songs about being bored were more interesting than their songs about politics(which just like a weird parody of punk).

I've been saying for years than Bon Jovi is overrated. I get shamed everytime

I also think Nickelback and Maroon 5 don't have the best rep right now, especially Maroon 5.

Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj etc. I am not a lot into music but I find it strange when I hear hot garbage trending on the streets.

The answer to this thread depends entirely on the 'type of fans' and why they rate the artist so highly.

Amongst certain groups Michael Jackson is waaaay overrated while amongst others he's pretty correctly rated as a 'good but not phenomenal' artist, which is what I see him as.

Amongst certain groups Tupac is seen as the god of rap, which he isn't as lyrically he was 'meh' but could he deliver it well and make almost anything flow good enough? Yeah, though his delivery was strongest while his flow was just 'good' not consistently 'WOW'.

Amongst certain groups Lana Del Ray is seen as AMAZING OMG while amongst others she's seen as terrible, both are wrong in my opinion. She's good at what she does and I appreciate it at times, though the vibe is a too sad and slow for me on a typical day.

It depends on the artist and who it is we're saying overrates them.

RHCP I love and would be part of the people overrating them for sure, I know I'm overrating them but would never stop doing so as I vibe hard af with some of their jams.

I actually love ID along with Twenty One Pilots and Coldplay- 3 on a loop in my list all the time. But, I get why ID would be called overrated though they shouldn't be by the general standard of being called overrated. 'Cause just a handful probably 3-4 of their songs are deemed mainstream and are murdered on radio over years. Thus, the impression is natural to arise that "yeah, that's that band that plays the generic shit all the time". But in reality, they got literally a hundred songs I bet the commenters dont have the slightest idea of. They got depth in their lyrics and creativity in their edition and power in their music except probably the last album which sucks- even I as a die hard agree to. But my point is that the radio culture has built this wrong impression on the band and they don't deserve the unnecessary hate due to that.

I actually agree. I believe this is a subjective measure seen as an objective one.

The Beatles in general were OK. Most of their songs are kinda forgettable, there are a few I do like, but plenty of people were doing more interesting stuff at the time. I also prefer covers of their stuff cuz I just don't like their voices particularly. I'm not saying they shouldn't be remembered for what they did and how popular they were, but let's move on please.

Once again, they're not bad, just overrated.

I was just trying to preempt the inevitable "the Beatles were good/iconic/really popular back in the day" argument that I usually get when I bring up the Beatles. This happens to me in real life just as often as online. So if by "this place" you mean humanity, then I agree.
