83 Poco

Truly underrated band, often sharing members with the Eagles, Buffalo Springfield, Loggins and Messina, and Steely Dan, among others.

84 Camel

Camel are great and worth adding to anyone's collection. I don't remember too much about their music so will refrain from comment.

Maybe a little more jazz than rock influenced but a great band

Buy the mirage album and you be the judge

85 Van der Graaf Generator
86 Nazareth

Awesome group! Loved their songs!

Love Hurts.. if you go to the Philippines, you will find it on all good videoke machines, and you can belt it out unashamedly without criticism (well u don't understand the language anyway), but it lends itself to anyone being able to sing it well, and enjoyably. The only judge is the machine, which will no doubt score u highly. Worth a trip for that alone. Naz rated too low

This band is also underrated.their hardcore music was amazing - zxm

How can a band that has China Grove, Listen to the Music, Takin' it to the Streets, Black Water and other classics not be found on this list! The Doobie Brothers belong!
