222The Bravery

It's my favorite band and it's so underrated none of my friends have even heard about this band and yet I love it. If you like rock music you should definitely listen to their songs like "time won't let me go", "bad sun", "tyrant, "above and below" and "the spectator".

The Bravery is one of the most underrated bands today. So many of their songs are used in movies, yet they are way too less famous than they deserve to be. Their best songs are "Time won't let me go", "Believe", "Above and below", and so on...

223They Might Be GiantsThey Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

The World needs to hear this guy!

Amazing Rock Band - Extremely underappreciated

Never got the attention they deserved

226The Replacements
227Crush 40

If you hear one of their songs like Open Your Heart, you'd know they have all the qualities of an awesome rock band. Amazing riffs and solos, matching vocals and catchy drumming. I think that because they primarily make music for Sonic the Hedgehog games, they go overlooked by anyone not in the fan base. Seriously, Crush 40 is epic and very underrated.

Yes! I think they are very underrated, Sonic the hedgehog fans may know this band but that isn't enough to make many people know who they are, they deserve to be on best song lists and such, they are so amazing! One of the best bands ever!

This band may not be the best but they have great music and they do SONIC games that makes them awesome

228The KinksThe Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1963 by brothers Dave and Ray Davies.

A very special band and one that seems to be overlooked. They were at the forefront of the British Invasion with The Beatles, The Stones and The Who, yet they seem so unique. The singer/songwriter (Ray Davies) is a great humored genius with an addicting voice. The drummer is always solid and well timed. The bass is (maybe a bit shy) soft when you want and strong when needed. Finally, the guitarist is very talented and is obvious in their more complex compositions. Just start with their first album, if you aren't into 60s Pop Rock n Roll then skip to Village Green Preservation Society (easily one of the best albums ever). You'll be hooked.

I feel like The Kinks were made from this list because they NEVER EVEN GOT NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY, have been around from the early 60's to the early 90's (3 decades), have been banned from playing in the United States, and have an amazing sound that is unique! I have to say that The Kinks are one of my favorite bands of all time because their sound is so perfect (In my opinion)! - TheThomasThomas

They are simply amazing - You Really Got Me, All Day and All of the Night, Tired of Waiting For You, 'Til the End of the Day, Lola, Everybody's Gonna Be Happy, and BEST OF ALL... 'Waterloo Sunset'! There are so many more brilliant hits that aren't on this list. Please go check out the Kinks because it will be worth the time - I promise!

How is Queen underrated? Bohemian Rhapsody is definitely the most overrated song of all time. Songs like Lola, All day and All night and You really got me are all amazing songs by the Kinks, worthy of the Beatles,

You may think what the hell arctic monkeys are so popular but when you think about it they really aren't! AM was a fantastic album and yet, you never heard anyone say " ARCTIC MONKEYS RELEASED A NEW ALBUM! " Whenever you ask people what they are listening to it's never arctic monkeys. They deserve more. Literally, to this day I am still rocking out to AM. It's my favourite rock album ever and if you haven't heard it what are you still doing reading my comment get to it.

239PendulumPendulum is an Australian drum and bass and electronic rock band founded in 2002. Pendulum originally formed in the Australian city of Perth, Western Australia by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding.
240Bad ReligionBad Religion is an American punk rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1979. The band makes extensive use of soaring three-part vocal harmonies, guitar solos and lyrics that often contain religious and political commentary.

Underrated and ahead of their time. Maybe in a million years time when humans have telekinetic powers and big brains will they truly be appreciated.
The only reason why Lennon's Imagine is voted the best song ever is because Time And Disregard was sadly locked away in The Godfathers of punk's vault. This song was written by Greg Graffin when he was only 17! Most 17 year olds can't even drive or have intercourse properly! Graffin is a genius and made most other songwriters look artistically puny, including Lennon.
Armor-piercing lyrics, dynamic riffs and versatility in genres. Not for everyone's tastes, especially those who only like music you can dance, make out or sing along Cheesily to (which is sadly, most people) but if any band epitomises the artistic superiority of esoteric music over commercial, Bad Religion can not be overlooked.
