adj: said of a person, work of art, or phenomenon that recieves undeserved credit or popularity.

Note: lately, the word has been abused in popular culture to label something popular that the speaker simply dislikes or has an objection to on principle. Among fans of hip-hop, said speaker is often deemed a hater. In extreme cases, he/she is labeled a punk bitch.

Also note, there is no such thing as "overrated" in indie culture. When the word is uttered in the presence of an indie kid, it is often followed by disembodied moans and howls and said person melting like a snowball in Hell.
Person 1: Ke$ha is overrated.
Person 2: Amen to that.

Person 1: Lana del Rey is so overrated.
Person 2: U jelly?

Person 1: Jay-Z is so overrated.
Hip-hop fan: You betta shut the fuck up, jealous punk bitch hater!

Person 1: Dude, Radiohead is so overrated.

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.

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)"
