When you overdrive something with too much level it distorts. For guitarists, there is a distinction between overdrive and distortion. For guitarists distortion generally means extreme distortion and is associated with a buzzing or fuzz type of sound. Overdrive represents semi-distortion with increased harmonics and presence, but not the same as all out distortion. A sort of mild distortion with the character of the guitar coming through.
