Most Underrated Rock Bandscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 2XW
They are completely underrated! Each member is so talented and they're aren't appreciated enough for their talent. Everyone forgets that Pete Townshend's lyric writing is out of this world, and that Keith Moon's drumming in "Cousin Kevin" happened to be ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE! Also, John Entwistle had an impressive vocal range for a bassist. (He sings all the high notes in A Quick One, While He's Away). And Roger Daltrey is such an amazing singer! His vocals are so passionate and clean! Also, they made 3 ROCK OPERAS! One being a song, and two being albums! How impressive is that?! Ugh. Overall, these guys are so amazing but they're so under appreciated. - MontyPython
Even if I was not a huge fan of The Who, I could easily tell how underrated they are. Led Zeppelin and The Beatles get constant praise but I never see or hear anybody praising The Who for their incredible contribution to rock music. It's so sad as they are one of the best bands ever to have been.
The Who's music had everything. From great vocals to awesome guitar riff. But what really made the band was Keith Moons thundering drums and John Entwistle amazing Bass along with Pete's great writing. The Who are so underrated and The Who's Who's next album is one of the greatest albums ever made. So made great songs Like Baba o'riley, Wont Get Fooled again and Behind Blue eyes. Such a great band that more people need to know about.
They aren't underrated at all.V14 Comments
The Animals are my favorite band, next to Pink Floyd. They have an amazing creative sound, and unfortunately only one chart topper. Eric Burdon's voice is amazing, and their spirit and beats always can get a crowd moving. They need more attention. The Animals are amazing. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
They're not underrated. They are the single greatest band of all time with an insane catalogue full of sick riffs and great overall songs, but they get all the recognition they deserve. They're no 2 on the metal bands list, and need I remind that metal is the most popular genre on the site? - Songsta41
they are so underrated, they should have one or two of metallica or slipknot's grammys. I love metallica but maiden is just..better. a7x is also underrated too. - sammoth
In what way is Maiden underrated?
Dude This band his huge whatV9 Comments
More of a "power pop" band, but nonetheless very talented, very underrated, and very influential. My dad introduced me to their music about eight years ago. He, my mom, and some of their friends have had some great memories with this band and now they have passed on to me. I'm only 17 years old and I can tell you that this is a real quality band right here
Check them out - they're from the 70's. Never got famous because of poor management and decisions made. Big influence on groups like REM and Placebo
When I was living in Chicago, I polished up on the history of popular music. Guitarist Chris Bell is an honorable mention for the 27 club.
I love their beautiful songs like "thirteen" and "September gurls" - ChatonNoirV3 Comments
Breaking Benjamin are not underrated. -_-
Oh come on! No one gives these guys credit! Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton both began their careers in this band! - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
free bird, sweet home alabama, simple man, and much more but so little credit - thefrozenlemon
One of their songs has become an anthem. Free bird is a genius song, and they have others that are excellent. They are so underrated and very talented.
They are known for "Free Bird", and "Sweet Home Alabama" but that's it. - hypeV4 Comments
Better Than Metallica,No One Cares Again.And Kreator,Destruction,Sadus The Real Big Four Thrash Bands.
Excellent band. I don't understand why nobody knows them!...
No-one I know has heard of Supertramp and I can't understand why. I can't stop listening to them, love the use of saxophone, very rare in a lot of music. They are just overall awesome.
Supertramp and queen should be number one and two laugh out loud
Music with the most layers. Never heard that good music before.
Absolutely brilliant, eccentric musicV2 Comments
It's not only about their music, but it's the lyrics and the meaning. Rise against are and will always be my favorite band.
I will never forget this band. Love it
Some of the best lyrics I've ever heard and a unique soundV1 Comment
Awesome music.. Creativity.. Lyrics... This band should b in the top 10...
There music makes you think out side the box. Shows how. ignorant people are in the present and past.
This band has some of the most jovial and haunting melodies. As stated before all the members are great at what they do and their music can really sends a message. All their albums are great but I really enjoyed, Morning View and A Crow Left of the Murder. They have many different sounds and styles, and their music can be very atmospheric. A lot of people will say their newer stuff is poppy, but after listening to If Not Now, When? Finally I fell in love. Still making music that's makes you think and feel. Probably my favorite band. Want to see them live soon watched their concerts many times via YouTube. AMAZING.
Dude this band is so underratted; they are never on the top 100 anything. All the members rock at what they do, are one of the only bands that can pull off having a dj, and have a vast array of styles. They put on a hell of a performance and every song is a new "favorite song".
Incubus is one of a kind. Matching rock with funk metal and alternative metal they created a unique music style that defined them in the early 00s.. They deserve more credit since they made awesome songs.
I loved their music video for - PonyV2 Comments
I cannot believe that most people don't know this band! All the media ever focuses on these days are people with no talent, but with pretty faces (If you call Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj pretty, that is). A great band who writes more than meaningful lyrics... They're simply amazing!
red is a very underrated band
people with a tiny amount of talent like justin bieber get all the attention
but theres bands out there like red who can actualy write meaningful songs and actualy can make music!
It's really weird that this band doesn't get any attention. Unique music, meaningful lyrics, and very AMAZING vocals... So touching and emotional.
I love this band!V8 Comments
A living legend with a deep catalog!
Aw I love this guy but not wildly underrated
Alice Cooper is the King of Shock Rock and he's a showman, which makes his concerts all the more interesting. Still, he's not as well loved or recognized as other bands like Led Zeppelin; Guns N' Roses; etc;
He deserves way more recognition.
Amazing to see live - BeautifulsoundV2 Comments
Probably the only band that hasn't been ruined by MTV. That might the reason they're unheard of.
