    Meaning songs that the radio plays and you hear all the time but they might not be their best songs, versus songs they never play that are actually some of the better songs by that particular band.

    Example:

    Pink Floyd: Overrated: Brick in the Wall II; Underrated: High Hopes and Brain Damage
