Most Underrated Classic Rock Songs


The Top TenXW

1I Can See for Miles - The Who

By a mile the most inventive song. It should have made number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic

2Stone Cold Crazy - Queen

This is more hard rock than classic rock

3Hallelujah - Deep Purple
4Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones
5Ziggy Stardust - David BowieV1 Comment
6Layla - Derek and the Dominos

The Eric Clapton solo version is more popular, but I prefer this version - gemcloben

7Misty Mountain Hop - Led Zeppelin
8Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution - AC/DC
9Crossroads - Cream
10You Better Run - The Young Rascals

Most people will always relate Pat Benatar with this classic. Most people are very unaware that she covered this song. Now that's truly underrated for sure. I truly prefer the original. Most people don't think of The Rascals when someone mentions the song. Sad, really!

The Newcomers

?Mistral Wind - Heart
?Hot Love, Cold World - Bob Welch

The Contenders

11Feelin' Satisfied - Boston

I'd say underrated. The album "Don't Look Back" was released in 1978 and was later released as a single. Only went to #46. Very little airplay and most people only remember the single Don't Look back from the album. Sad, cool song!

12Helter Skelter - The Beatles
13Fool In the Rain - Led Zeppelin

A truly good song from Zeppelin that you don't hear much about. One of the better songs off this album. Excellent, really. This song needs credit along with others we all heard so much of. Younger listeners need to hear this and not just their, well you know. Just a gem!

14The March of the Black Queen - Queen
15Nobody's Fault - Aerosmith
16For Your Love - The Yardbirds
17I'm a Man - Spencer Davis Group
18Gone Hollywood - Supertramp

I like Breakfast In America, it is a excellent album. This is one of the best tracks and it's a very underrated song off that album.

19Ride Captain Ride - Blues Image

May have been only a one hit wonder of the 70's it's very underrated. The album which this song came from is also very underrated and well as Blue Image.

20Victim of Love - Eagles

Everyone knows all their really big hits. This song is just as good as any of them and is the most underrated of their songs. Don't hear this song often as all the songs we have over heard since the 70's and 80's.
