Only in the 400s on the list of best rock bands ever, yet they ware so good!

123Zi:Kill

The King of all Visual Kei band!

124The Sound

One of the best post punk bands. Underrated is an understatement. Best of the 80's nobody has heard. Shame, considering the others 80's crap people still listen to. They need to be heard even decades later!

This band needs it's recognition as one of the best 80's bands and be heard even if it's decades later. Be underrated No more!

One of the really great bands of the 80's most people never heard of, but should. They started before U2 and they should have be listened to just as much. So very overlooked and underrated.

I consider it one of the top bands ever. Such a shame they broke up cause otherwise, I think they could had even been consider the best. Their music was genius, each one of their songs is so well calculated to make the perfect harmony of sounds.

Underrated? Please show me an emo teen who doesn't worship them!

Everyone thinks there depressive emo and suicidal but there understanding supportive punk and one of the most underrated bands ever

My Chemica Romance is really underrated. Of course not between ''emo teens'' but both in chart success and in our rock culture. They're really amazing and I can say without a doubt that they write the exceptionally deep lyrics. When people get over all the ''they're ungrateful, suicidial emos'', they could actually enjoy their amazing music. They'de my favourite rock band forever.

Yeah us metallica fans made them so underrated - blackBlackBlack

Look at the best songs from Kill 'Em All and Dave Mustaine wrote several of them. Not as good at Metallica but still damn good.

He do write a little bit that's all. He gets way to much credit then he deserves. - Sabbath

They should be the king of thrash not Metallica - superluke10000

Metallica sold out and got popular while the real metal fans stayed with a real metal band.
