102JourneyJourney is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973, composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch.

every single person in the world knows don't stop believin but journey is pretty unknown - thefrozenlemon

Don't stop believing is only 4 minutes you dumbass and why would you vote for it if you don't like their music?

Journey stinks don't stop I can't shut up because this is 7 minute song. The only song I like is Open Arms in this band. I don't like this band becuase the songs are boring.

103Neutral Milk Hotel

"In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" is one of the greatest albums of all time and certainly the most underrated. Take a listen people and just enjoy pure musical genius.

104James Gang
105Faith No MoreFaith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Wow 127th on this list they should be way way higher like in the top 25. They are the Rodney Dangerfield of music they just don't get any damn respect

Definitely the most underrated rock/metal band of the late 1980s-early 1990s

What a band! And almost no one knows it

106CoronerCoroner is a Swiss thrash metal band from Z├╝rich, formed in the early 80s. They have been called "the Rush of thrash metal" for their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash. They garnered relatively little attention outside of Europe.
107Cake
108Gentle GiantGentle Giant were a British progressive rock band active between 1970 and 1980. The band was known for the complexity and sophistication of its music and for the varied musical skills of its members.

Underrated even on the underrated list ;-;... It's a crime

109Chickenfoot

One of best supergroups that has formed in last 10 years
Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony from Van Halen, Chad Smith from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Joe Satriani made up an awesome hard rock band..

110The Power Station
111EchosmithEchosmith is an American indie pop band formed in February 2009 in Chino, California. The band is composed of four siblings: Graham, Sydney, Noah, and Jamie Sierota. Echosmith started first as "Ready Set Go!" until they signed to Warner Bros. Records in May 2012.They are best known for their hit song ...read more.
112Wings

Wings was an amazing band. The entire album Band on the Run is a masterpiece. Paul and wings have a lot of great songs: Silly Love Songs, Juniors Farm, Sally G,Letting Go...

I think it is not given enough value because it is compared with the Beatles, and they are two totally different bands: /

They made the best rock/pop music of 70s and had many hit albums and singles and were a HUGE influence on pop music but unfortunately they are hardly ever played on radio and are only rarely remembered because of Paul McCartney (co-founder of the legendary Beatles)

113Celesty
114Fever Tree
115Type O NegativeType O Negative was an American gothic/doom metal band formed in Brooklyn, New York City in 1989. Their lyrical emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death resulted in the nickname "The Drab Four".

This band is definitely worth a listen. There is a certain mystical quality to their music; almost enchanting. Every album after and including Bloody Kisses is a masterpiece. A few songs I recommend: Black No. 1, Love You To Death, I Don't Wanna Be Me, Christian Woman, Green Man, Nettie, Creepy Green Light.

If you like the band after listening to those songs, try their albums. Bloody Kisses, October Rust, World Coming Down, and Life Is Killing Me are the greatest.

Emotional, humorous, and heavy. You won't be sorry.

Most original, musically talented, and underrated band of the past 20 years.

116SlayerSlayer is an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, formed in 1981 by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King.

People seem to be voting for and adding their favourite bands rather than what is actually underrated, something which Slayer certainly isn't!

Probably Slayer then Dreamtheater and Megadeth (even though they have sold about 40 million albums they arent too well known)

Unbelievably underrated. I can't believe A7X is on this list. They aren't too terribly underrated, they just have a lot of stupid people who listen to one song, see talent, and decide to hate on it.

Nothing to say, they are awesome

Brilliant band! They deserve more respect in the music industry, everyone has hear of them... yet many cannot name at least 3 of their songs!

Absolutely brilliant band. They are pretty well known, but they do not receive nearly enough credit for their wide range of styles and amazing musical proficiency and complexity.

On my list of favorite bands/artists, this is definitely at number one.
Muse is unique, versatile and expressive in style, composition, technicality and lyricism. While they are popular in England, they should have more attention from other countries as well.

Oh my god they are so underrated! The vocals are great, the lyrics are cool and the riffs give ear orgasms. I absolutely recommend this band to any fan of hard stuff.

Very underrated! Their sound is like Metallica pantera and lamb of god kind of mixed together. They're not just some emo band people.
