164 Mr.Strange
165 Joy Division Joy Division Joy Division were an English rock band formed in 1976 in Salford, Greater Manchester. Originally named Warsaw, the band consisted of singer Ian Curtis, guitarist and keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook, and drummer Stephen Morris.

If Ian wouldn't have gone in his inner depression, the band would've kept on going with him, and would have become an international icon. And wouldn't be part of this list. I say so because Joy Division's two actual albums and singles Love Will Tear us Apart, Dead Souls and ATMOSPHERE are all soaring masterpieces.
ps- RIP Ian, you sweet soul. - PinkflASHES

Definitely one of the best punk bands

The best punk rock band in my opinion.I WAS LISTENING TO GREEN DAY for 2 years and at the same time I was listening to The Offspring...Now there have been 5 years since I first heard of them and I still enjoy their music.And...Dexter Holland is a man that everyone should admire for his achievements.

171 D'erlanger

most of the bands in the top tens is internationally known but this one, even if they are legendary, only japanese people recognized the band. other people into j-rock recognizes x-japan, buck tick, l'arc en ciel, dir en grey, gazette, asian kung fu generation and they forgot this one - ronluna

only a few outside japan like me who are a fan of d'erlanger, x-japan gets all credit in terms who started visual kei movement but this one is also one of the bands who started it. ask many visual kei bands in japan and they will point d'erlanger as their idol. - ronluna

very underrated under appreciated rock band of japan because of those fangirls who are busy collecting x-japan, dir en grey, girugamesh, etc without noticing d'erlanger's major contribution to japanese rock history - ronluna

I'm the only one voting for them and writing them in the website and other japanese rock fans are busy with other popular japanese bands like dir en grey, larc en ciel (one of my favorite besides this) and so common x-japan - ronluna

172 Skid Row Skid Row Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in Toms River, New Jersey. They were very successful in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their first two albums certified multi-platinum.

Sebastian Bach has one of the best voices in history. Their songs were really touching, not only the ballads, but the rebellious ones also.

173 Children of Bodom Children of Bodom Children Of Bodom is a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the group currently consists of Alexi Laiho, Janne Wirman, Henkka Seppälä, Jaska Raatikainen and Daniel Freyberg.
174 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

Pearl Jam are very underrated mainly because they refused to be commercial sellouts so not as many people have had a chance to listen to them. It just goes to show how much of a great band they are when Eddie has performed with the likes of Pink Floyd, The Who, The Rolling Stones, REM etc.

Not most underrated but it most be at top 10 at least. They are one of the best bands in the history. Better than nirvana alice in chains Foo Fighters. Best grunge band. - Bilgehankonya

Every day I'm reminded of how amazing Pearl Jam is when I listen to one of their songs. I even think of my 30th favorite PJ song as an incredibly awesome song. Even songs below that! This band is rated pretty high, but they still could be much higher, which is why I put Pearl Jam at number one. - Songsta41

180 Dinosaur Jr.

So underrated they're not even high on the underrated list. I firmly believe Dino is up there among the greatest rock bands of all time. They invented their own unique sound and no one has done it quite as well as them since.

Half these bands are over rated. Radio head, and Megadeth for sure. Nirvana is over rated too
