How can Lamb of God be voted the most overrated band when they have great music, vocals, attitude, and influence towards the American Metal scene.I think Slipknot is the most overrated band in the metal scene, exuse me did i just say metal scene? I guess if you call nine guys who wear stupid masks and play on a keyboard and seven other instruments metal then, yeah I guess you call them the most overrated "Metal" band
