This is too underrated, since Shut Up and Dance gained a global success. What's wrong with this song guys?

I can say I liked them before they were popular. - Merilille

3Handlebars - Flobots

Heard it by chance and I gotta say, it's pretty cool

4Lovers - Jackie Evancho

Theme from the movie "House of Flying Daggers", an absolutely spectacular performance.

Jackie elevates a movie theme into a vocal and emotional manifesto. - BobG

One of my all time favorite performances.

6Pork and Beans - Weezer
7Savior - Rise Against

Great Song! I couldn't stop listening to this song since the first time I listened to it. Guys listen to this song, It will change your life!

People of this generation no longer know the meaning of music with true meaning
While this may seem like a love song on the surface, the message hoped to be conveyed is about saving Mother Nature and NO THIS IS NOT CHEESY
Other songs of RA are also really insightful and meaningful

8Till I Collapse - Eminem

Greatest eminem song by far. Super underrated and under played. Eminem is one of the greatest rappers to do it and this song is a great example

Fantastic song but often overlooked because it wasn't a single.

One of the best rap songs of all time

9Rise - Flobots
10DoYaThing - Gorillaz, James Murphy and André 3000

The Newcomers

?King of Anything - Sara Bareilles
?Die Another Day - Madonna

James Bond fans hate this song but I think it's cool! The video was a true blockbuster! - Abel123

The Contenders

11Wretches and Kings - Linkin Park

His is so good song I think it would on 1

What a great beat, can't believe I haven't heard his before..

12Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy

When I first heard this, I was like... That's really Fall Out Boy? It sounds so different from their more recent hits like Centuries. This is one of my favorite songs of all time and it's amazing.

I LOVE THIS SONG and Jetpack Blues. Great now I want to listen to Fall Out Boy. - Merilille

13Hero - Skillet

Such a breath taking song that should have made better success! - DJZeezo

This song makes me think of Ghost town:Spark Awesome sound in your face vocals.

If you like this song try their other song rise

14Over and Over - Three Days Grace

Songs that make it to a top ten list aren't underrated.

One of the best romance song by a hard rock band, give it a listen to the end.

This song is certainly underrated in the UK as very few people have heard it here which is a shame.

Agree, it's a good song in general, not just for Three days grace
