    First of all, rap and death metal are not music in my opinion so I don't even count those. Country, I really am not familiar enough with to say. So just from my own experience, having grown up in the 60's and 70's, I could think of more than a few, but here goes. These are my top 5 overrated musicians and bands. ( no offense anyone.... to each their own ) Feel free to contribute anything you want... I must have hurt a few feelings with this list;
    1) Neil Young (good song writer, bad singer and terrible lead guitar player)
    2) Rolling Stones ( 2 good albums but not worthy of super-stardom)
    3) Mötley Crüe ( Van Halen wannabes wearing Kiss makeup )
    4) George Thorogood ( the least bad to the bone guitarist I've ever seen)
    5) Bruce Springsteen ( fun guy to have a beer with I'm sure, but "The Boss"?
    give me a break.....Boss of what, looking cool holding a guitar ? )

    Dave Matthews. If you've heard one shitty song by him you've heard them all.
