441 Fear and the Nervous System
442 Pilot
443 Gun Gun
444 Infectious Grooves
445 Jane's Addiction

Extremely influential. lost in the shadow of same-era nirvana but had a far bigger impact on rock in general. defied category and created art. more unique than 99% of the bands on this list.

446 New Politics

It's such a shame such an awesome band is so underrated that is isn't even on the most underrated band's list. :(

447 Twisted Sister Twisted Sister Twisted Sister is an American heavy metal band originally from Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, and later based in Long Island, New York.

I Like All Songs Of This Band But From 1985 It Started To Go Down.

448 Our Lady Peace

451 The Walkmen

What a band - how can some of these be underrated. It's a contradiction that a band can be popularly underrated. For the record Deep Purple is grossly overrated in my opinion.

452 The Outfield
453 Doves

Really guys. Most of these bands are already recognized and lauded.

454 Mike + the Mechanics

Somebody has heard of Genesis and doesn't hear the band of Mike Rutherford. They've could've been excellent in status quo as the greatest band. They had all of their popular songs like the heart-wrenching The Living Years, All I Need is a Miracle, Word of Mouth and Over My Shoulder.

455 Belly

This is an odd list, I am not sure how more then half these bands are platinum sellers and are underrated especially iron maiden who have sold over 200 million albums. As far as the song writing and overall talent, belly are the most way underrated band ever along with enuff-z-enough and vain. You have bands like poison then Green Day riding high and it's like... What

456 Toadies

Was expecting more stuff like Blue Oyster Cult, Mountain, Ram Jam, Pixies, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, and these guys. Not Rush, STP,
Dire Straits, Queen, ZzTop, The Who and Deep Purple in the top 20. they're great, but they get a good amount of attention. Other groups I named are only known for a song or two, when they have an incredible and diverse catalog of music.

457 EarlyRise
458 Rooster

Young talented lads from West London. Shame they were never given a chance.

459 IQ
460 Hum

The entire album "You'd Prefer An Astronaut" is one of the best of the 90s. No one sounds quite like Hum.
