Certainly subjective to a degree.  5 on that list, I'd have to agree with.

Is that the original GnR or the post Slash GnR?

So how does personal likes lead to an overrated handle?  All of those bands have made their members very rich through sales, royalties, and live concerts - so they are proven successful and popular in their genre. Saying they are lacking is pretty dumb - they made it in music so not overrated at all.

OP, All the bands I have every performed with were outstanding. Your list is highly subjective and without any merit. Music is Music and performers are simply the messengers of a high level of consciousness. IMHO

AC/DC, known not for remaking the same song over and over again, but for their "high level of consciousness".

 

Music is music and not all of it is equal. Note that "overrated" is not defined as "bad". Metallica are not bad by any means, they are however wildly popular when they have more musically talented contemporaries.

I can see your point of view on most, but not with Tool.  All the other bands you listed are far more famous than them.  There's really no such thing as over or underrated though.  They're rated precisely as people rate them, and anything else is personal opinion.

Overrated, underrated, good, bad so on and so forth are all subjective. 

 

And guess what?  The above is my opinion.  :P

 

Here's some with the various lead singers of AC/DC when they played for different bands.

 

And one with the first incarnation of AC/DC with Dave Evans.  Note that the brothers are flipped on guitar roles.

'more musically talented'. This quote made me laugh.

Well, I am from Europe (Spain) and it was more common to consume music from European countries (especially Scandinavian) than from US, though they are barely known outside their country or outside Europe, still the one I'd consider overrated is Rammstein. I like them but to me they fit on that category. Aside of them I can't find any other band I listen to that would fit into that.
