241Bad 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.

242BushBush 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.

243Smile 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

244Van HalenVan 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

245Cheap TrickCheap 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

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

255Social DistortionSocial 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.
