Besides any hair metal and nu-metal band as whole genres (nickleback, linkin park, staind, godsmack, Motley Crue, Def Leppard), I'd have to say Tool, Green Day, and U2, but I could go on for hours as I can't limit it to just three.
Looking at your choices, I can see how you would think that about the last three. I think the bigger the band is, the easier it is to say they're overrated. The other bands you listed (except Nickelback), to me, are kind of middle of the road, at least these days. That being said, I think Green Day is one of the best bands of all time. I think there's a lot to be said for being able to do so much with simplistic style choices, and some of their choices have been really creative. I also hear they put on one of the best shows, like they're really entertaining.
