    The Beatles - A Day in the Life Vs Disturbed - Sound Of Silence

    The Beatles are overrated as a band, IMO, but not that song. That is the one genuinely fantastic song and not the least overrated


    Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Thrift Shop Vs The Beatles - Can't Buy Me Love

    Actually, another Beatles song that really is pretty good and not overrated.


    Kings of Leon - Use Somebody Vs Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli - Time to Say Goodbye

    Love that duet


    Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe Vs Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall

    Not terribly fond of Pink Floyd, and there's probably plenty of competitions where I'd vote for it as overrated, but not this round.

    Yesterday?! Ah here. OK, maybe the most-covered song of all time could be described as over-rated, but I can't bring myself to vote for it as such.


    To be honest, Cardi B is about the only one I can vote for here on my default basis that all rap is over-rated. It's up against the only other song I'd consider voting for here too.


    I don't know Rock Lobster - sounds a bit annoying, but can't comment on whether it's over-rated. Traditional Irish stuff tends to be under-rated I find - a lot of people happy to put it down, so can't vote for the Fields. Go West is what it is; I don't think it has any notions of itself.

    Arctic Monkeys - I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor Vs The Beatles - Yellow Submarine

    Both pretty dire.


    Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus Vs Cardi B - Bodak Yellow


    The Pet Shop Boys - Go West Vs The B-52's - Rock Lobster


    The Beatles - Yesterday Vs Paddy Reilly - Fields of Athenry

    Now THIS is the sort of Beatles song that makes me think the Beatles are overrated. Though to be honest, FoA kinda is too.

    Black Eyed Peas - My Humps Vs David Gray - Babylon - Dreadful song. if it was i gottta feelin i could understand how it might be considered overrated

    Phil Collins - Against All Odds Vs Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights - don't think either of these are overrated but if i have to pick one

    Green day - Boulevard of broken dreams Vs The Beatles - All you Need is Love - sorry but every Beatles song on here is going to get it form me.

    U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday Vs Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run - There's been a lot of talk about this song, maybe too much talk (see what i did there!)

    I do like PC, but that wouldn't be a favourite, and WH is great.


    Green day - Boulevard of broken dreams Vs The Beatles - All you Need is Love

    Both are fairly overrated in fairness.


    U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday Vs Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run

    Easiest choice so far. Don't like U2, they are even more overrated than The Beatles (at least I like a few Beatles songs), and I love BS & BTR.

    David Gray - Babylon - The BEP song is just garbage, whereas pub-singer David Gray's ascent to superstardom (in this country at least) is baffling.

    Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights - Look, I'll say it now, although it won't be popular around these parts, all Kate Bush songs are overrated. That voice is like a drill in my head, and this song is beyond annoying imo.

    GreenDday - Boulevard of Broken Dreams - two good songs, I wouldn't say either is overrated, but All You Need is Love is one of my favourite Beatles songs so have to go for Green Day.

    U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday - again a tough call, but Born to Run is a classic and can in no way be considered overrated.
