The Contenders: Page 5

81 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

This band is so AMAZING! I like all their songs!

These people are fake. Horrible, just horrible.

82 Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.
83 Roxy Music Roxy Music

Great glam rock band, probably the most creative and cleverist.

84 Silver Sun
85 Kraftwerk Kraftwerk Kraftwerk is a German electronic music band formed by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider in 1970 in Düsseldorf. The band was fronted by both Hütter and Schneider until Schneider's departure in 2008.
86 Device Device Device is an industrial metal band started by David Draiman, frontman of the heavy metal group Disturbed. Draiman was approached by Geno Lenardo, former guitarist of Filter, and together they started to work on new material.
87 Stabbing Westward
88 Clique Girlz
89 Motörhead Motörhead Motörhead were an English heavy metal band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister, who was the sole constant member; guitarist and songwriter Larry Wallis; and drummer Lucas Fox. The band's harsh vocals and fast paced tempos helped inspire speed metal and more.

"We're Motorhead and we play rock and roll" as Lemmy would say. Despite not wanting to associate themselves with punk and metal, they were hugely influential in the NWOBHM scene and inspired bands like Metallica. If one were to listen to Lemmy and crew, it would seem like you took AC/DC and turned them into a bunch of Hell's Angels as far as the attitude of the music. Unlike AC/DC though, Motorhead was not afraid to deviate from their norm every so often such as with the orchestra strings, gloomy organ sound, and surprisingly tender lyrics of '1916'. Lemmy had also collaborated with Ozzy Osbourne for the 'No More Tears' album co-writing 'Mama I'm Coming Home'. You would think that with all this, Lemmy would be residing in a nice mansion in Malibu but instead lives in a small apartment in West Hollywood. Still, that is rather fitting for Lemmy and his rock and roll persona.

90 Thirteen Senses

They have to be "The most Underrated Band ever" I mean they are so underrated that they are nowhere in this list. They have got amazing songs like "Into the fire", "The Salt Wound Routine", "Thru the glass" the music is simply amazing and their lead singer William South has an amazing voice. Thirteen Senses is the real deal, also even though they are underrated I feel happy about it because we have seen what becomes of the so called "best bands" also I feel pretty pleased that I am privileged enough to be one of the very few people who know about this band and listens to their awesome songs as others don't.

91 Weezer Weezer Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.
92 Evanescence Evanescence Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

Most underrated music artist! Can't belive that Call me when you're sober only gets 28 672 402 views on YouTube while We can't stop by Miley Cyrus gets 471 135 316 views. That's just... sad because Miley is talentless while Amy Lee has one of the most beautiful voices ever

93 Pixies Pixies The Pixies are an American alternative rock band formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. The group disbanded in 1993 in acrimonious circumstances, but reunited in 2004. The group currently consists of founders Black Francis, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering.

Easily the most unique sounding band on this list. They were capable of blending genres that you never thought could mingle. Every album has its own flavor, and is worth listening to hundreds of times.

FAR FAR FAR more underrated then any other band on this list they had terrible sales in the United States even though they influenced every alternative band after them (Nirvana, Pearl Jam etc... ) Listen to Surfa Rosa for the first time and try to guess what year the album came I guarantee your at least 5 years off.

94 NOFX NOFX NOFX are an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band was formed in 1983 by vocalist/bassist Fat Mike and guitarist Eric Melvin. Drummer Erik Sandin joined NOFX shortly after.

Really underrated just because they didn't sell out to a major label in the pop-punk explosion of the 90s. They have a ton of great songs and are better than a lot of bands on the radio now.

95 Green Day Green Day Green Day are an American punk rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock . Some of their influences more.

While Green Day has turned into somewhat of a franchise after the Release of "American Idiot", they are still timeless songs like "Brain Stew" and "Basket Case" are incredible. They have put their own spin on punk rock and in my opinion are still one of the greatest bands of all time.

96 Bush Bush Bush are a British rock band formed in London, England in 1992. The band found their immediate success with the release of their debut album Sixteen Stone in 1994, which is certified 6× multi-platinum by the RIAA.

Why the hell is this band so underrated? Possibly because they were the only Grunge act from the UK. And this is really sad because quite possibly Glycerine is one of the best songs ever.

97 The Bouncing Souls

The Bouncing Souls are so underrated like most of the punk rock bands. They are so talented you must look at them if you don't know anything about them. They have great songs such as lean on sheena, Anchors Aweigh, Sing A long forever, gasoline,... - pageg

98 Sum 41 Sum 41 Sum 41 is a Canadian rock band from Ajax, Ontario, Canada. Originally called Kaspir, the band was formed in 1996 and, as of 2015, consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Baksh, co-lead guitarist/backing vocalist Tom Thacker, bassist/backing vocalist more.

The majority of the top ten are very well known. This band is not, however they have sold a lot of albums, but still never seen anywhere & unknown

More than 40 million sold yet still unknown

99 Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals).
