A word that means something is given more hype or credit than it deserves. Oversensitive people take overrated to mean something is bad. No matter how much you explain that it doesn't mean that, they will continue to continue on their rampage.
Person: (insert name or band here) is overrated.
Fan: AHHHHHH! YOU HATER! YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE THEY ARE BETTER THAN YOU! THEY ARE GREAT AND YOU SHOULD DIE!!!!! AHHHHHHHAHAHAHHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A word often used by douchebags so that they don't have to give a coherent argument about why they don't like something.
Douchebag:"I think, "Breaking Bad" is overrated!
Normal Person: "Why do you care what other people think? Why don't you like it?"
Douchebag: "(Couldn't Answer)"

A word used (often incorrectly) by pretentious hipster snot bags to describe something or someone they don't care for, especially when they are describing something that is extremely popular or well known (such as The Beatles or Batman). Usually they use the word to sound cool and edgy, when really they sound like a giant asshole.

What "overrated" actually means is something is more highly appraised than it should be, which isn't necessarily bad.
Garret: Man, I hate the fucking Beatles! They're so fucking overrated!
Sam: Really? Are you saying that just because you don't like their music? I don't think you understand what that word means.
