Most Underrated Dream Theater Songs

Most underrated songs by the progressive metal band Dream Theater.

The Top Ten

1 Honor Thy Father

This is one of my favorite songs by DT. Highly underrated!

2 Build Me Up, Break Me Down

Epic I love the heavy tone its ausome and underrated

3 The Ones Who Help to Set the Sun
4 Repentance
5 Misunderstood

Sort of gets lost in the masterpiece album SDOIT, but if you listen to it alone you'll understand that this is a brilliant and perfectly executed song. It's one of those that just takes time to get into. - Songsta41

6 The Glass Prison

Sort of overrated but I don't give a crap its ausome

7 Innocence Faded
8 Panic Attack

Fantastic song, a lot of their shorter songs are very underrated

Amazing but not underrated - Songsta41

Awesome song it is the song which got me into DM

9 The Root of All Evil

Definitely not by me, I've definitely heard this more than any other Dream Theater song - Songsta41

Their best song actually.. Pure awesomeness! - nooreldeen

The second best song on the already know what number 1 is.

10 Another Day

My personal favorite on Images and Words - Frantic713

The Contenders

11 The Bigger Picture
12 New Millennium
13 Wither
14 A Nightmare to Remember

I think 21 is just a tad low for what this song deserves, but not enough to really call it underrated. - Songsta41

15 Surrender to Reason
16 On the Backs of Angels

Now, Jordan Rudess show you all of his skill. And all of his skill is combined to this song. Simply awesome - razors15

I LOVE THIS SOLO. Every note is perfect

17 The Shattered Fortress
18 The Count of Tuscany

Not underrated but amazing

I love this 20 min. Song first ausome then heavy then finally peacefully

19 Sacrificed Sons

Amazing! no one even mentions this song's breathtaking instrumentation & solo as they are overly obsessed with the title track & other pop songs on the album... - Arhaan95

20 Prophets of War
21 Never Enough

Underrated only because is short... and is like muse... but still been awesome

22 The Killing Hand
23 Forsaken

My vote made Forsaken jump from 14 to 7, in the Top 10 where it belongs! This whole album is underrated because everyone questions the short songs (despite ITPOE being they're 2nd longest to date) and the more metal over prog feel. But realistically, the album is phenomenal, much better than the simple, radio friendly sounds of an album like Falling into Infinity.

24 Beyond This Life

It's such a god song but very underrated compared to 'Home' and 'Dance of Eternity'

25 Learning to Live

Favourite song from Images and Words. - IronSabbathPriest

26 These Walls

How is this not on the list? It's such a beautiful song. Great chorus and verses. Petrucci's solo is pretty awesome as well! - IronSabbathPriest

So great and amazing yet so underrated. - Beatlesboy9

27 A Rite of Passage

An excellent song. That is all there is to be said.

28 The Mirror
29 Surrounded
30 Lost Not Forgotten
31 A New Beginning
32 Lines In the Sand

All of Falling into Infinity, for that matter - Songsta41

33 Strange Deja Vu
34 6:00
35 Dance of Eternity
36 Lifting Shadows Off a Dream
37 You Not Me
38 Stream of Consciousness
39 Take the Time
40 Lie
41 Bridges In the Sky
42 Trial of Tears

My favorite from FII. In my top ten favorite songs of theirs.
