Boston is known for songs like More than a Feeling and Peace of Mind, but they have a bunch of really good songs! Rock and Roll Band, Smokin', Something About You, etc.

They have some really good songs and their guitar and organ combination rocks

Underrated? Please show me an emo teen who doesn't worship them!

Everyone thinks there depressive emo and suicidal but there understanding supportive punk and one of the most underrated bands ever

My Chemica Romance is really underrated. Of course not between ''emo teens'' but both in chart success and in our rock culture. They're really amazing and I can say without a doubt that they write the exceptionally deep lyrics. When people get over all the ''they're ungrateful, suicidial emos'', they could actually enjoy their amazing music. They'de my favourite rock band forever.

210 The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.

Best band ever in my eyes. Not only did they sell like garbage within their own time, but they later would be recognized for being so influential. It simply took 30 years for the rest of the world to catch up to what they were doing. Overall great band and everyone should give them a listen. I'm listening to them while I write this. Overall better then these other bands, really. Highly experimental, intelligent, meaningful music here. Listen to their 1967 album, The Velvet Underground and Nico, to start things off then pick up the other ones too. Great great stuff. I'm 17 years old, and I know this stuff is top shelf.

Muse and other overrated crappy "rock" bands over Velvet Underground? What kind of reality this is? Those kids obviously don't even know what underrated means!

Agreed, very underrated. Solid rock. Lou Reed was a pioneer. Still it's hard to listen to him extol the virtues of drug abuse.

One of the most important band ever. Without them no punk - ChatonNoir

211 Yes Yes Yes are an English rock band formed in 1968 by bassist Chris Squire and singer Jon Anderson. They first achieved success in the 1970s with a progressive, art and symphonic style of rock music.

Pioneering Progressive Rock Band, very musical. They deserve better, no doubt. Check out "Yours is No Disgrace"

They have a lot of good songs, although most of them revolve around similar topics, mostly alchoholism, betrayal, and unrequited love. However, that being said, they have one quality that makes me love them: The endings to their songs are generally the best part. How annoying is it when a song is good the whole way through and has a really crappy ending? Not with this band.

They have so many good songs and are not as famous as they should be.

219 The Verve The Verve The Verve were an English rock band formed in Wigan in 1990 by lead vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bass guitarist Simon Jones and drummer Peter Salisbury. Guitarist and keyboard player Simon Tong became a member at a later date.

They are awesome.. Ashcroft is one of best singers in today's music industry with unbelievable voice. And Mcabbee is just guitar genius. Songs like Weeping Willow, Velvet Morning, On Your Own, Drugs Don't Work, Love Is Noise and many many others are legendary and very very underrated. And all rights for only one song that became popularity which belongs to them - Bittersweet Symphony was wrongfully withdrawn from owners.

220 XTC

An incredibly, criminally underrated band. Huge catalog of complex, imaginative music rivaling the Beatles. To make a "Best of" compilation you could easily fill 4 cds with no bad songs in the bunch.
