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 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

9 Innocence Faded
10 Another Day

My personal favorite on Images and Words - Frantic713

The Contenders

11 New Millennium
12 Wither
13 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

14 The Bigger Picture
15 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

18 The Shattered Fortress
19 Prophets of War
20 Never Enough

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

21 The Killing Hand
22 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.

23 Learning to Live

Favourite song from Images and Words. - IronSabbathPriest

24 Sacrificed Sons
25 A Rite of Passage

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

26 Beyond This Life

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

27 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
