Most Underrated Rock Songs

21 She Sells Sancturary - The Cult She Sells Sancturary - The Cult

Underrated? This was a big hit in the 80's. Was very big also in New-wave clubs at the time. I know, I was there.

22 Hell Is for Children - Pat Benatar Hell Is for Children - Pat Benatar

Provocative lyrics? Yes but the song is awesome. You can't deny that - PowerGirl

A good song however it seems like it's pro abortion and that's not good

23 Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin

Awesome song that is in my opinion a lot better than stairway to heaven due mostly to that killer guitar riff and jimi's solo work in the middle of the song. Led Zeppelin's best song by far and yet most people only know them because of stairway to heaven.

Older folk are people and as far as we are concerned there are even more underrated songs by them than this. Quite a popular song for us back then.

24 Polyamorous - Breaking Benjamin Polyamorous - Breaking Benjamin

This song is absolutely unbelievable! One of the best songs ever produced! Such an underrated band...

25 Sympathy - Uriah Heep Sympathy - Uriah Heep
26 Suite Sister Mary - Queensryche Suite Sister Mary - Queensryche
27 Civil War - Guns N' Roses Civil War - Guns N' Roses

Voting Civil War as it is the only underrated song here! Some people need to read the dictionary, how is Stairway to Heaven and We are the champions underrated?

What we've got here... Is failure... To communicate.

Or just failure to understand why this isn't higher on the list. Some of the songs here are also overrated. Perfect example: BARRACUDA.

How the heck are many of the songs above this underrated, Stairway to Heaven is one of the most known and liked songs of all time, My criteria for underrated, Not in top ten songs of all time period

Finally an actual underrated song. Barracuda, We Are The Champions, Stairway To Heaven all get plenty of attention

29 Slaves and Bulldozers - Soundgarden Slaves and Bulldozers - Soundgarden

Killer song, Chris Cornell hits some extremely high notes. - zachmandude

30 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

No way in hell this song is underrated. Go to the best songs of all time list and see how far you have to scroll down until you see this song. Oh wait you don't, it's #1 already. This song is insanely overrated, because it's very good, but very, very far from being the best song of all time. - Songsta41

When people ask me what song I am listening to and I say Bohemian Rhapsody, most of them say "What's a 'bohemian rhapsody'? " And that gets me so mad. People don't know the greatest song ever. Isn't that sad to you?!

It doesn't, because even fewer people know the ACTUAL greatest song ever, Fade to Black by Metallica. - Songsta41

This is a great song but far from underrated. Take it from someone past 50. Us older rockers know. I think it was also used in a very popular teen movie decades after the song was released in the 70's. I think most people even young people know the song and the movie which gave it even more exposure. Underrated, NOT!

This song is surprisingly underrated for being the greatest rock song (by topten voters) and I don't understand why stairway to heaven is on here, definitely overrated but a great song none the less

31 Can't Let You Go - Rainbow Can't Let You Go - Rainbow
32 Heaven's Drive - L'Arc~en~Ciel Heaven's Drive - L'Arc~en~Ciel

this song is less popular than barracuda, we are the champions, stairway to heaven and bohemian rhapsody because a a japanese song can hardly compete with those american and other western very commercialized songs - ronluna

its guitar riffs and basslines are amazing with the fast beat of the drums and rocking vocals in alternative style. one of the most requested l'arc songs - ronluna

a GREAT song that isn't known for much pepole
i think is very underrated, if it were more known, im sure that a lot of people would like it!

if a japanese band can be more famous this song will become more known in the world - ronluna

33 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

Not underrated but this is the best Green Day song. Boulevard Of Broken Dreams and 21 Guns are so overrated. - malamJONES

35 Crying in the Rain - Whitesnake Crying in the Rain - Whitesnake
36 Don't Say It's Over - Gun Don't Say It's Over - Gun
37 Highway Star - Deep Purple Highway Star - Deep Purple V 1 Comment
38 Holiday - Green Day Holiday - Green Day

I don't understand why people are mentioning greatest rock songs in this list in other categories those songs are already at the top positions I hope that people should mention those songs which are actually underrated because most of the songs above are actually good ones and definitely not underrated but loved by most of the people.

39 Modern Day Cowboy - Tesla Modern Day Cowboy - Tesla
40 Paranoid Paranoid

Another sabbath classic, and the best metal album!

Every likes iron man war pigs and more but you almost never hear paranoid

Again why are most of the songs on this list some of the most iconic

One of the best songs by black sabbath
