122 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

Deftones have undergone an enormous evolution over 20 years, yet through their entire career they have kept up a very original and distinctive sound.

One of the greatest bands of all the time, very creative

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.

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.

125 The 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.

One of the best metal bands ever, they are created Southern metal, and Groove metal. This band kicks ass! They will be live forever!

How are these guys underrated, they saved heavy metal during the time grunge was taking over the 90's

127 Zi:Kill

The King of all Visual Kei band!

128 Halestorm Halestorm Halestorm is an American rock band from Red Lion, Pennsylvania, consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Lzzy Hale, her brother drummer and percussionist Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger, and bassist Josh Smith .

This chick measures up very well with the big boys in metal.

Very catchy and very good. Love them!

131 The Kinks The Kinks The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1963 by brothers Dave and Ray Davies.

A very special band and one that seems to be overlooked. They were at the forefront of the British Invasion with The Beatles, The Stones and The Who, yet they seem so unique. The singer/songwriter (Ray Davies) is a great humored genius with an addicting voice. The drummer is always solid and well timed. The bass is (maybe a bit shy) soft when you want and strong when needed. Finally, the guitarist is very talented and is obvious in their more complex compositions. Just start with their first album, if you aren't into 60s Pop Rock n Roll then skip to Village Green Preservation Society (easily one of the best albums ever). You'll be hooked.

I feel like The Kinks were made from this list because they NEVER EVEN GOT NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY, have been around from the early 60's to the early 90's (3 decades), have been banned from playing in the United States, and have an amazing sound that is unique! I have to say that The Kinks are one of my favorite bands of all time because their sound is so perfect (In my opinion)! - TheThomasThomas

They are simply amazing - You Really Got Me, All Day and All of the Night, Tired of Waiting For You, 'Til the End of the Day, Lola, Everybody's Gonna Be Happy, and BEST OF ALL... 'Waterloo Sunset'! There are so many more brilliant hits that aren't on this list. Please go check out the Kinks because it will be worth the time - I promise!

How is Queen underrated? Bohemian Rhapsody is definitely the most overrated song of all time. Songs like Lola, All day and All night and You really got me are all amazing songs by the Kinks, worthy of the Beatles,

133 Florence + the Machine
134 X
135 Guns N' Roses

They are often ignored in favour of other great bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin when the question comes up about who are the greatest rock band of all times. I think they are truly the best band ever and only The Who give them a close race.

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.

This is underrated rock bands, not the best rock bands! Guns N Roses are not underrated

What a joke. They are overrated, if anything.

140 Pulp

When I discuss music with my friends and the topic of britpop comes up, I'll hear either oasis or blur are the best, but pulp are honestly in my opinion the best britpop act, there's more to them than just common people
