A word used by narcissistic, self obsessed chuckle fucks, who dislike something but cannot handle the concept of subjection and who believe their own opinions are more valid than the opinions of countless other people regardless or reasoning or taste.

an example might look like:

Mike: "hey Dan, whats your favorite video game?"
Dan: "Oh, I don't play video games, they're overrated"
Mike: "what do you mean?"
Dan "everyone loves video games so much, i just think its pointless, they're so overrated"
Mike: "So you're saying that each one of those people who DO like video games for their own reasons aren't valid, and are immediately discredited simply because you, one person do not? regardless off the fact that clearly everyone has different tastes in media and all enjoy different things for different reasons? and therefor the concept of "worth" is entirely personal, and not definitive measurement of what is good and what is not?"

Dan: ..."what?"
Mike: "its called subjection"
Dan ..."whats that?"
Mike: ..."You fuck-knuckle"
"regardless of all your opinions and tastes, that thing you like is simply overrated"

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.
Indie kid: AHHHHHOOOOOOOOHBLAAAAAAH! I'm MEEEEELLLLTIIIING!

When something becomes overly popular and attains a fandom or fanboys/girls, who proceed to claim it is better than it actually is, to the point of utter retardation. A certain way to make something overrated is to have ignorant people embrace it, who will then employ all their ignorant and illogical might to defend it being questioned by anyone with a logical sense.
Examples of tings that have become Overrated as a cause of extreme and unjust popularity:

-Naruto
-Jesus
-Tyrannosaurus rex
-Starcraft
-Blizzard
-Muhammed
-Mother Theresa
