It's pretty hard to tell which ones are overrated, some cases can be pretty obvious (musicians that sample most of the sound they use i.e Bad Bunny having a intro very similar to Coldplay's The Scientist in one of his songs) but when we are talking about bands that left a legacy behind or even revolutionized the world of music, it can be hard because being a parent to lots of modern bands does deserve a lot of respect.

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.

 

Tool are completely unable to change their sound and evolve, everything they release just sounds like standard Tool. It's full of pseudo-intellectualism, the drummer isn't the "best in the world" as the fans would lead you to believe. They're greedy [edited]that rate themselves way too highly (their [edited]ticket prices, imagine having to pay an annual fee just to get the opportunity to buy some overpriced ticket bundle, the hell is that [edited]?) Their music is good for the radio rock it is, but in terms of prog, there are far better options that are way less known.

I think Tool's most recent two albums have a very different sound from their first three.  I would agree that (based on what I've listened to so far) Fear Inoculum is not an evolution of 10,000 Days, but 10,000 Days was so unbelievably good, that I'd happily take more of the same.

 

If we're back to the OP's point of what's overrated, when something charts #1 in multiple countries, and is multi-platinum, it's rated exactly as reviews and sales say it should be rated in my mind, so globally, nothing is over or underrated.  That's something that applies to an individual only.

 

Personally, 10,000 Days is my second favorite album of all time, but if someone else hates it, I fully understand that point of view as well.  For context, other stuff I love:  The Prodigy, Sigur Ros, Bon Iver, Fleetwood Mac, No Doubt, Lizzo, Portugal. The Man, The Knife, Belle & Sebastian, M83, Clann Zu

This band is not only over rated but also pure trash in my opinion:

Yeah, just kidding. Love Shirley and the band.

This is one of the most over rated bands next to the Stones and Beatles:

Spoiler

The only other band I could include is the Ramones and their hit tune “ I want to be over rated”.
