88 Steve Miller Band Steve Miller Band The Steve Miller Band is an American rock band formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California. The band is led by Steve Miller on guitar and lead vocals.

They didn't do many real big songs but the about 10 they did do are amazing. So they should be in the top 80 at least

I absolutely love this band, and these really are some amazing songs JET AIRLINER! THE JOKER! ROCK'N ME! COME ON MAN!

89 Nazareth

Awesome group! Loved their songs!

Love Hurts.. if you go to the Philippines, you will find it on all good videoke machines, and you can belt it out unashamedly without criticism (well u don't understand the language anyway), but it lends itself to anyone being able to sing it well, and enjoyably. The only judge is the machine, which will no doubt score u highly. Worth a trip for that alone. Naz rated too low

This band is also underrated.their hardcore music was amazing - zxm

90 The Doobie Brothers

How can a band that has China Grove, Listen to the Music, Takin' it to the Streets, Black Water and other classics not be found on this list! The Doobie Brothers belong!

True doobie brothers are great and for sure should be on this list super underrated I even saw them live a few nights ago believe it or not

Still on the road with sold out shows. Great musicians with fantastic song catalog. Go see them live...you will be surprised!

98 Procol Harum Procol Harum Procol Harum are an English rock band formed in 1967. They contributed to the development of progressive rock, and by extension, symphonic rock.

This band is so under rated. Wish the rock stations would play more of them.

This is Trower in the early days. Awesome.

Gary Brooker piano playing and vocals are breathtaking at times... Check out "The Final Thrust" on Ninth and "Wizard Man" on Something Magic
