65th? What? By far the best band since Nirvana

Their songs have great and unique depth to them. They're not about sex and drugs and stuff. The songs and music videos are amazing. They should'nt be 31, laugh out loud.

63 ZZ Top ZZ Top ZZ Top is an American rock band that formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. The band is composed of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hill, guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, and drummer Frank Beard.

ZZ Top is underrated on this list. Must be in the top 5 of the USA.

64 Chicago

Chicago is in my top three or so all time. Like another one said they deserve a very high spot just for their first ten or eleven studio albums. Their first three offerings are some of the best music I've ever heard, and I even like 13 a lot (when a high number of folks don't like it at all). They have put out a few new albums in the last few years but I can't tolerate them. JUST NOT GOOD AT ALL!

This band after 40 years still creating original music and has sales which puts them much higher, what's the deal?

Their low position is down to lack of knowledge of their early work. This alone should place them in the top 10.

Why isn't this band in the top ten? they are all tru musicians and are only second to the beach boys in sales of american bands

65 The Talking Heads

They belong on this list. Top 20 at minimum. The punk leaders of the punk era. The Stop Making Sense your still one of the best shows I have seen out of the 200 I've been to. Maybe not THE best but certainly ground breaking.

Top ten for me. This music sounds just as good today as when it was released. I hear their sound in LOTS of current bands.

66 Toto Toto Toto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Van Nuys in Los Angeles. The band's current lineup consists of Joseph Williams, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Steve Lukather, plus touring members Leland Sklar and Shannon Forrest.

Toto is great. But where is Boston?

67 Poison Poison Poison is an American hair/glam metal band that achieved great commercial success in the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.
68 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

Best American band in last ten years.

71 Blue Öyster Cult Blue Öyster Cult Blue Öyster Cult is an American rock band from Long Island, New York, whose most successful work includes the hard rock and heavy metal songs "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", "Godzilla" and "Burnin' for You".

Most underrated band here. So many after them wouldn't even exist (see Killers, Kings of Leon, etc). As important at Nirvana to rock, but a better band overall.

75 Evanescence Evanescence Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

Evanescence is one of the best bands in this world. Amy Lee has the most beautiful voice in the world and she's so special and very talented and unique. This magnificent band should be number one.

Korn is such a wonderful and cool and amazing band. Johnathan Davis knows how to rock the nation! He's an inspiration and a leader in this messed up world. He was bullied and beaten in high school, and a lot of his songs are about the traumatic experiences he suffered from those evil teenage bullies. Korn should be in the top 3 along with Evanescence and Paramore!

Nu-metal bands are just so underrated - Disturbedpotato
