This band is so underrated that it is raked 101 in a underrated rock band list... Come on they were a big influence for Clapton, Pink Floyd and even The Beatles. Great songwriting, three excellent singers, one of the most laid back rhythm section. They toured with Dylan and their first two albums are masterpieces constantly praised by other artists.

Some of the smartest music that inspired greats like Eric Clapton and others. Amazing and underrated roots rock

62TraptTrapt is an American rock band that formed in Los Gatos, California in 1995, best known for their 2002 single "Headstrong".

Every mid school teen that has grown in the 00s must have listened at least once to their best single song ''Headstrong''.

This band bring me back so much nice memories from the High school.They are one of the best.

63Uriah HeepUriah Heep are an English rock band formed in London in 1969 that was one of the top rock bands in the early 1970s.

Very underrated band. Love the earlier stuff. Saw them is Australia 2011 fantastic.

Most underrated band ever. Period. Reminiscent of, and nearly on a par with, Led Zeppelin, they get virtually no recognition. Salisbury, with its orchestra backup, is a masterpiece.

64The CarsThe Cars are an American rock band that emerged from the new wave scene in the late 1970s. The band originated in Boston, Massachusetts in 1976, with singer, rhythm guitarist and songwriter Ric Ocasek, singer and bassist Benjamin Orr, lead guitarist Elliot Easton, keyboardist Greg Hawkes and drummer ...read more.

One of the early pioneers of the new wave scene, even before it became mainstream in the 80's. A great live act in their times, they have been forgotten and constantly overlooked by fans, peers and critics alike though their songs have stood the test of times.

The Cars are no doubt one of the most underrated bands of all time! Although they weren't together for that many years, they created some of the best music the world will ever hear. A shame that so many hits of theirs will go unrecognized by many!

No one ever talks about the talents of the Cars! Although they were only around for a few years, they have so many hits, and so many great songs that some people have never even heard of!

The cars in my In my opinion were one of the best bands ever. Yet to find a song that I dislike from them

Ron and Rod and the boys...Stay With Me Debris Ooh LA La...no Black Crowe without them.

69Budgie

I felt like they got an uncredited role in the progression of rock/metal in the 70's. Basically if there was no Rush then everyone would know Budgie - Johnnyt800

Very underrated and an unknown...Check out "Breadfan" Metallica does a cover of this but can't compete with Budgie. One of my top loves

They pushed hard rock forward as much as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple or Black Sabath. should be in top 3 in my opinion.

70Rhapsody of Fire

I know that rhapsody of fire is metal, not rock, but there are so many bands hear that are not rock that this list is more rock and metal. Rhapsody of fire is amazing, but nobody listens to them. Their songs are so complex and the lyrics are actually good. They are a million times better than Metallica's more recent albums.

71Alter BridgeAlter Bridge is an American rock band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 2004. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Myles Kennedy, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

In my opinion, the best rock band in the last 10 years, and sadly, one of the most underrated. They have so much variety and a lot of their songs are just beautiful and badass. Myles Kennedy's great voice and Mark Tremonti's awesome guitar solos worth it.

One of the most underrated rock bands with extremely good music

72MisfitsMisfits are an American Horror Punk band often recognized as the progenitors of the horror punk subgenre, blending punk rock and other musical influences with horror film themes and imagery.

Come on guys, they are iconic and their music is cool! How are they so low? The practically originated horror punk.

74Black SabbathBlack Sabbath are a Heavy Metal band formed in Birmingham, England in 1968 by guitarist and songwriter Tony Iommi, Singer Ozzy Osbourne, Bassist and Main Lyricist Geezer Butler and Drummer Bill Ward .

One of the greatest rock bands off all time. The founding fathers of heavy metal. They where around in the early 60s

They deserve more credit. Black Sabbath is one of the most influential bands in the world and they helped inspire many of the bands we have today; they're practically the Godfather of rock and roll. They rule!

Wouldn't necessarily say underrated, everyone credits them for the invention of metal. I do agree that more people should listen to them then say, basically everything nowadays that's mainstream.

My favourite band, all their songs are brilliant!

77ChevelleChevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

Definitely one of the best bands producing music write now. Their sound is truly amazing for three members. Pete's voice tops 95% of all other metal and Hard Rock bands.

You Rock chevelle, I have everyone of your songs. My favorites are Saturdays, The Clincher, don't Fake this, and Glimpse of a Con.

Chevelle is a fantastic band that every hard rock and alternative metal fan should listen.

Letter from a theif, Jars, The Fad, etc. Best rock band of our generation in my honest opinion

80SkilletSkillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

Underrated in the mainstream community, yeah, but in the Christian group, where people actually listen to them, not at all underrated.

Just listen to their music! They have to be in the top 5 at least! Their album comatose is one of the best albums of all time!

They have sick songs, just listen to them, you will get hooked.
