You will see an underrated band overseas cooler than the famous X-Japan. They are popular in Japan but other people acknowledge x-Japan as the only rock group that started visual kei - ronluna

322Nightmare

Definitely the best Band ever! I can't find any words to describe how awesome they are... These 5 guys are the best thing that ever happened to Rock music. They're all really great and talented musicians. And they're rocking since 12 years now! I love them, and they will ever be MY number 1! The best Rock Band of ALL TIME!

We are Nightmare! The best Band! It's a very good band. His lyrics rebel, daring, love, melancholy and justice. Very good rock! Create and transmit your music in my blood to sweetest flesh in my dreams...

Incredibly adorable! They do the theme for Death Note! -

323Depeche ModeDepeche Mode are an English electronic and synth-pop band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group's original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andy Fletcher, and Vince Clarke.

The most popular electronic band the world has ever known, one of the few who changed the world of music. They have been going on over 30 years and have not been really recognized in the UK. Well, nobody can be a prophet in his own land.

This is the best alternative band in the world period. No Alternative music musician will argue that Depeche Mode's songs has some sort of influence on them.

Powerful. Plenty of meaning and soul, and though it may sound strange, so powerful live as Pink Floyd or whoever reigns that title

This is not a band for everybody but everybody can find a song for himself from their repertoire.

324Devo

Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! come on, that is the greatest punk album of all time! Then they moved on to new wave and released genius works of art like Oh, No! It's Devo. then of course you have the infamous "Whip It", which I am not a big fan of btw.

One of my favorite new wave bands should be in top 100. what

I love them! They're a South Korean rockband full of awesome guys with a lot of talent! They are kinda new, so they deserve some nice votes! Love CN Blue, look 'em up if you don't know 'em.

CN BLUE IS THE BEST BAND, has wonderful song, is a band that their music reflects a lot of feeling;CNBLUE best is that they love the music they love their fans as.

331PendulumPendulum is an Australian drum and bass and electronic rock band founded in 2002. Pendulum originally formed in the Australian city of Perth, Western Australia by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding.

The abillity to combine electronic genres of DnB and dubstep with rock, and still have it sound amazing, is something not many other bands could pull off.

One of my all-time favorite Alternative and Psychedelic Rock Bands!
Completly underrated! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

335Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

I'm done. You people have 0 taste in music. Come on, Bob Seger and the silver bullet band at 456? This is a joke, right? Turn the page, night moves, old time rock and roll, against the wind, once METALICA covered them, for god sakes.

I meant savage garden not garden

I voted Queen (just saying) but I can't believe bands like FOB or 21 pilots or even ' garden whjwhjo onmly had one d-mn hit is above this band this is a band that really tries with hjollywood nights like a rock old time rock n roll this is just unacceptable this better change and quick.

337Cold Chisel

Anyone reading this should get a cold chisel album. Try East first then Circus animals. Chisel are hands down the best Aussie band ever like Canadians think about Tragically Hip. Hard to believe these two bands did not reach world audiences. A great band for someone who is looking for something they may have missed who is fantastic.

Unbelievable to think that this band or several of the others from Australasia spawned from around that time are not in the top 50. There are 150 on this list that can only be rated as interesting enough to be loved by their mothers or eccentrics. Some followers and critics need to get out of their shelters for a while to sniff the air instead of stale inhaling.

Cold Chisel are Aussie icons but underrated out side Australia

338Roxy Music

One of the best Art-rock bands of all time. If bands like Zeppelin were the hard kernel of rock, Roxy were the smooth, luxury chocolate coating. Bryan Ferry's voice (like or loathe it) was unique. The lyrics were superb, the music sublime. A quality product through and through.

339Living Sacrifice
340Simon and GarfunkelSimon & Garfunkel were an American folk rock duo consisting of singer-songwriter Paul Simon and singer Art Garfunkel.

What! 476 oh wait there not really a rock band more of a soft folk band. Still love em though.
