61 The Last Sleepless City

If My Chemical Romance is famous, I don't understand why this isn't.

62 Trapt Trapt Trapt 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.

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.

64 The Cars The Cars The 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

They are pretty underrated. - Pony

68 Budgie

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

Exceptional Band. One of the founders of NWOBHM. Some bands like Iron Maiden, Van Halen, Metallica, Judas Priest covered their songs.

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

70 Misfits Misfits Misfits 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.

71 Rhapsody of Fire Rhapsody 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.

72 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

They deserve more credit than what they've got. They make some of the best music you'll ever hear.

They're pretty underrated on TheTopTens.

They are so original, why are they this low?

73 Alter Bridge Alter Bridge Alter 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

78 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle 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
