281TotoToto 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.

282The Zombies

Amazing band! They had hits in America, like their song " She's Not There. " They should be inducted into the RandR Hall of Fame. If you go there, you'll see one the members, Paul Atkinson's guitar. Vote Zombies!

283Municipal WasteMunicipal Waste is a crossover thrash band from Richmond, Virginia. They performed at the UK's Download Festival on June 15, 2008. They also joined At the Gates on their "Suicidal Final Tour" along with Darkest Hour, Toxic Holocaust and Repulsion.

This band is absolutely genius.

284OverkillOverkill is an American thrash metal band, formed in 1980 in New Jersey. They have gone through many line-up changes, with singer Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and bassist D.D.

289NirvanaNirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. ...read more.

They're overrated for the stuff they're famous for but anyone that ignores smells like teen spirit, lithium and their other commercial songs will see that their songs are great, I think they deserve the regignition but for their better songs, in Utero is a masterpiece by the way

They're actually pretty overrated.

Overrated. Sure I saw Semlls like teen spirit on Mtv like any other kid back in the 90's and thought WOW but I think overall that their sound was boring and I got so tired of hearing the Kurt Cobain was "the hero of my generation", - ChatonNoir

They should be on the most overrated bands list

290Operation Ivy

This one is actually kind of good. - RockFashionista

Had to search a long time on the list to find these guys. Absolutely love their style (especially their first album) but sadly they only released two. At least we still have Devour the Day.

Great band. Underrated songs aplenty: "No Time to Live," "Vagabond Virgin," "Shanghai Noodle Factory," all of Barleycorn, "Many a Mile to Freedom," "Hidden Treasure," "Evening Blue," "Walkin' in the Wind," and many others. Ridiculously under-appreciated--but there day will come again when fashions fade.

John Barleycorn Must die is amazing! One of my favorite bands of all time!

Traffic was similar to Genesis but Steve Winwood's vocals are great!

Far and away #1 on this list - I have them as the SECOND greatest R(R Band of all time (to The Rolling Stones)!...those of and the few that know better have been getting off on this ICONICband (especially live) forever man...

297Three Days GraceThree 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!

298Feeder

Completely underrated! A great band, great sound, has always deserved more notice.

One of my most favourite bands. They deserve much more attention and praise than what they have been getting.
Queen, ABBA, Megadeth and Black Sabbath on the other hand are NOT UNDERRATED at all and they are easily recognisable to the mass population.

299SurvivorSurvivor is an American rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by Jim Peterik. The band achieved its greatest success in the 1980s, garnering many charting singles, especially in the United States.

Poeple think this band is a one hit wonder with Eye of the Tiger, but its not. This band is brilliant, and so underrated.
