241 Social Distortion Social Distortion Social Distortion is an American punk rock band formed in 1978 in Fullerton, California. The band currently consists of Mike Ness, Jonny Wickersham, Brent Harding, David Hidalgo, Jr., and David Kalish.

First time I listened to them, they didn't sound like any ordinary rock band. They were different, I don't know how or why, but I think their works are unique and they deserve more recognition.

242 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

Pop-rock not rock. And they are a ratted band - ProPanda

They aren't underrated. A lot people know them - zxm

248 Pendulum Pendulum Pendulum 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.
249 Bad Religion Bad Religion Bad 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.

250 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.

Bush being so low on this list proves how underrate they are.

251 Smile Empty Soul Smile Empty Soul

My favorite band of all time, they just had too much swearing in most songs to go mainstream I think but take a listen to their cds and you will vote this higher

252 Van Halen Van Halen Van Halen is an American hard rock band formed in Pasadena, California, in 1972. From 1974 until 1985, the band consisted of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, vocalist David Lee Roth, drummer Alex Van Halen, and bassist Michael Anthony.

Eddie Van Halen define a great new heavy way to play the guitar. There is not much reconigtion for this band like they deserved

253 Cheap Trick Cheap Trick Cheap Trick is an American rock band from Rockford, Illinois, formed in 1973. As of 2010, the band currently consists of Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson and Daxx Nielsen.

This is an amazing band. Some songs have become famous but the band never did. I still don't get it

My all time favorite band! Super underrated! They have so many amazing songs!

So under rated should be way higher on this list

255 The Tragically Hip The Tragically Hip The Tragically Hip, often referred to simply as The Hip, are a Canadian rock band from Kingston, Ontario, consisting of lead singer Gordon Downie, guitarist Paul Langlois, guitarist Rob Baker, bassist Gord Sinclair, and drummer Johnny Fay.

One of the best bands of the 80's and 90's, should have been way bigger in the USA

256 Toto Toto Toto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Van Nuys in Los Angeles. The band's current lineup consists of Joseph Williams, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Steve Lukather, plus touring members Leland Sklar and Shannon Forrest.

I don't understand why some are groups such as Queen, Guns N Rouses etc.. in the top of the list. They have sold more than 100 million albums, won many Grammy awards and you call them underrated? I mean, really! Toto is one of the most underrated bands of all time, together with Scorpions, The Outfield and many more. They've sold only 35 million albums to the date. They had many problems with production & lead singer what maybe caused their current status. They could be better if production let them make music they wanted and if lead singer was in the band the whole time. Whatever, besides all this, they are highly underrated. And that's the fact.

257 Kiss Kiss Kiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.
258 Warrior Soul

This list should be full of bands that no one heard of not great groups that people think are underrated cause another group sells moore records then them.

259 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

How is Three Days Grace this low? Go listen to songs like Break, The Good life, Animal I have become, I hate Everything about you, Riot and so much more!

If it's high on the list it's not really underrated since a lot of people voted for it. That just proves how underrated three days grace rlly is because it's 304th on this list. What a shame. I love this band. - scourgeisdabest
