    Name a band / musician. List their most “overrated” song and most “underrated” song.

    I’ll go first...

    Metallica:
    Overrated - Enter Sandman
    Underrated: Fade to Black

    both great. Enter Sandman is classic, but it’s likely the only Metallica song many out there know who aren’t fans of this genre.

    Here’s another...Journey:

    Overrated: Don’t Stop Believin’
    Underrated: Wheel in the Sky

    Both good songs. The first just kind of got annoyingly popular by Karaoke Bars or something.

    Overrated: Eagles Hotel California. I hate that song and never understood why people seem to like it so much.

    Underrated: Queen Another One Bites The Dust. I think it's a well liked song anyway, but still underrated.

    The Rolling Stones

    Overrated: Satisfaction
    Underrated: Gimme Shelter


    Satisfaction is probably the first song people know of The Stones; Gimme Shelter is one of the greatest rock songs ever.

    Wow Hotel is an absolute masterpiece. Very surprised but to each his own . From a musical point of view the stuff going on it that song is absolutely mind blowing . Hey different strokes for different folks .

    For me most overrated : Don’t stop Believing (hate that song with every fiber of my being)

    Most underrated : Over the Hills and Far away . To me that song optimizes everything magical about Zeppelin.

    Here’s another one I’m torn about : Freebird .

    Growing up I adored that song . After gigging for half my adult life it now drives me nuts . If I had a dollar for every time some drunk asshole screamed “FREEBIRD” at me during a set I would have a beach house in Hilton head . I literally came seconds away from bludgeoning a guy to death with a Telecaster one night over this . If it was mine I probably would have . Now I’ve learned to appreciate it for what it is ... a great song . Most of the morons screaming this in the bar probably don’t even know who wrote it .

    Some are missing the intention of this thread.

    The artist for each song is supposed to be the same artist.

    Roxanne is great but I’d agree it’s overrated compared to some of their other songs. I’m a fan of “Don’t Stand So Close to Me”.

    Actually liked “Could’ve Been Me” by Billy Ray Cyrus. Think Achy Breaky Heart is bad but only as bad because of how much it got played. Annoying.

    Elton has so many great songs. I love his 90’s hits as I grew up listening to them. He’s one of the few artists I can still put on an album and listen all the way through.

    Levon & Yellow Brick Road are underrated as well, though they seem to get more attention now.

    Dear God, I hate "I love this bar". Talk about a lazy, boring, token country song? I bet it took him 2 minutes to write the whole thing. All the way to the token rednecks singing in the background at the end of the song.

    I’m not crazy about it myself. Though I prefer it to Red Solo Cup. Actually think Toby Keith is pretty good...hard to believe he sings those two cash grabs.

    ive seen him. It’s not the best concert I’ve been too but it’s the one where I was in awe the most. Every song is great. Does a few that are out there but the effects are awesome. Hopefully he’ll be healthy enough in the future to make up those dates.

    The end of the Farewell Tour shows is pretty emotional. Of course this is like his 5th Farewell Tour.

    I would also add to the underrated list:
    1. The Needle and the Spoon
    2. On the Hunt

    But it seems like all I ever hear in the radio is Freebird, Sweet Home Alabama and Tuesday's Gone. All good songs, but I'm just tired of them.
