Most Underrated Classic Rock Songs

The Top Ten

1 I Can See for Miles - The Who I 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

2 Stone Cold Crazy - Queen Stone Cold Crazy - Queen

This is more hard rock than classic rock

3 Hallelujah - Deep Purple
4 Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones
5 Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie V 1 Comment
6 Layla - Derek and the Dominos Layla - Derek and the Dominos

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

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

10 Feelin' Satisfied - Boston Feelin' 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!

The Newcomers

? Badge - Cream Badge - Cream

Easily their best effort and still stands up

? Crossroads - Cream Crossroads - Cream

The Contenders

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

13 The March of the Black Queen - Queen The March of the Black Queen - Queen
14 Eli's Coming - Three Dog Night Eli's Coming - Three Dog Night
15 Gone Hollywood - Supertramp Gone 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.

The most prog rock song in this album, it's truely a masterpiece of Rick Davies

16 Victim of Love - Eagles Victim 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.

17 Nobody's Fault - Aerosmith Nobody's Fault - Aerosmith
18 For Your Love - The Yardbirds For Your Love - The Yardbirds
19 I'm a Man - Spencer Davis Group I'm a Man - Spencer Davis Group
20 Ride Captain Ride - Blues Image Ride 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.
