Underrated always. People will eventually catch on, especially if you're a big phoney.

It depends...
In some ways I am underrated, for example, in school, (I'm a freakin' undiscovered genius, b*tch!) and as a result, people expect less of me than I am capable of, meaning I have to do less to meet expectations. Good times all around.
In other ways I am overrated, for example, it is widely known that I took karate, but much less widely known that I only achieved an orange belt and as I result, few are willing to brave my wrath, be it aroused. Once again, good times all around.
If, however, I had to choose one and stick with it all the time, I'd rather be overrated. The frustration that can come from being underrated is worse than the embarrassment that can come from being found out to be "not so great after all."

Underrated. As soon as something gets 'big' and people declare it 'overrated', it's no longer a good thing.. effectively you're dead. Being underrated leaves a whole world of possibility and keeps you real, less attention, less media/press etc, just a small fanbase who are loyal and true.

Underrated. Although sometimes people become so underrated that everyone says they are underrated and tlaks about it all the time, and so they become overrated.

You can become a cult classic or sleeper hit when your under rated, which makes you more money in the long run. If your in it for big quick gains, go for over rated, and then you get instant response.

I'm gonna say underrated.

Underrated. People tend to not like things that are overrated.

Underrated...absolutely...look at the Uber over-rated Ricky Gervais!

You can't get away from those people, which if they are as un-talented as most so-called celebrities are today, is just hideous.
But the under-rated by definition have a great talent, and will be respected by those lucky enough to find them, and will continue to be loved when they're gone.

The over-rated annoy, and then they die...what a waste of a life.

I guess it is better to be underrated because being overrated sometimes means that you dissappoint the people around you but having people underrate you can make them feel proud.
