I love music. So here are a few lists of over and under rated musicians/bands from a few different perspectives. All opinions mine.

Overrated by Critics: Green Day, Nirvana, Eminem
Underrated by Critics: Rolling Stones, Yes, Madonna, The Cars

Overrated by Radio: Bob Seger, Tom Petty, Pink Floyd (a word of explanation - I think Floyd is great, but their best stuff isn't radio friendly, and what they do play on the radio isn't all that good)
Underrated by Radio: Grateful Dead, The Cure, Red Hot Chili Peppers

Overrated by History: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix
Underrated by History: The Beatles (yes, they were that good that I think they were underrated), Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd

Overrated by Me: Genesis, The Police, Steely Dan
Underrated by Me: Bruce Springsteen, U2, Eminem
