83 Poco

Truly underrated band, often sharing members with the Eagles, Buffalo Springfield, Loggins and Messina, and Steely Dan, among others.

84 Van der Graaf Generator
85 Camel

Camel are great and worth adding to anyone's collection. I don't remember too much about their music so will refrain from comment.

Maybe a little more jazz than rock influenced but a great band

Buy the mirage album and you be the judge

86 Pure Prairie League

Pure Praire League is the definition of good country, rock music

87 Foghat Foghat Foghat are an English rock band formed in London in 1971. The band is known for its prominent use of electric slide guitar in its music.

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

Great rock sound and rod Stewart Ronnie wood and Kenney Jones were in the band

100 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.
