    overrated

    Overrated describes something that doesn't live up to its reputation or the hype surrounding it :shit:

    An example of something that would be described as overrated is a rock band that everyone says is great but which really is just OK.

    Vote accordingly :hat:

    Most bands listed had some really good stuff in their early years, then sold out and have produced absolute crap for decades.....
