    Back in the day, In the End was very popular, and nearly over rated. When Meteora came along, Numb was very popular as well, and it was over rated in my opinion. It's a great song, but it was over rated. Then came Collision Course. Numb / Encore was over rated, but then again, it was the only song Jay-Z & Linkin Park released off of Collision Course.

    But if you think about it, as far as radio popularity and tv popularity goes, none of the songs Linkin Park has released are really over rated. They become popular for a while, but they weren't really up there.

    The reason Linkin Park doesn't really have any over rated songs is because they haven't been around for a real long time. Sure, 6 years is a long time you might say, but think about other artists. Green Day is a perfect example. They've been around since the early 90's. Due to about 8 releases, not including American Idiot, they've become extremely popular and their songs immediately become hits. So, what do you get from that? Excess popularity, and there you go: over rated songs. It's about the same with Jay-Z. His popularity increased over the years and a lot of his songs are considered over rated. It takes time to build.

    I'm not saying that over rated is good, but to know that your song is admired by many, many people, it must feel good.

    But Linkin Park's biggest song was In the End; hands down.

    Most Under rated songs: Easier to Run, Figure.09, Forgotten, With You, Pushing Me Away(original version)...

    Most Over rated songs: In the end, One step closer...

    I love all their songs, just being honest.

    Breaking the habit was a great song. It was my fav on Meteora cuz it had the best lyrics in my opinion. I know i'm gonna get some smart a$$ comments for saying this, just be nice.

    Overated on Meteora: Breaking The Habit, Somewhere I Belong
    Underated on Meteora: All the others. XD

    I think that Lying From You needs a video, I mean, it's become pretty popular for some reason, maybe because it was mashed up with Dirt Off Your Shoulder. It would be cool for a ''Crawling'' or ''Numb'' style video with it, but this time feauture a MALE character.

    But that would go against the demographic of LP: teenage girls with emotional issues.

    No one wants to see a video of a guy having problems. That's why we make fun of emos so much.

    [making this title out of boredom while the friggin' page loads...]

    "breaking the habit" is overrated, while it is a real good song.
    "from the inside" and "lying from you" are... underrated.
    "foreword", "nobody's listening" and "figure.09" are alright too, albeit underrated. ;) ;)

    Underrated songs, or one's that should've gotten readio play, are

    From the Inside
    With You
    Forgotten
    Pushing Me Away
    A Place for My Head
    Figure .09

    Overrated...

    Numb

    I remember when if I said something about Linkin Park, a nearby girl would be like o yea I like them. And I'd be like what songs? And she'd be like Numb... That's when I'd shake my head in dissapointment.
