Judas Priest should not be on this list. Its one of the most influencal metal band that ever existed.
Why the hell is Judas Priest on this list?
What? If anything, Priest is underrated!
Who the hell put Judas Priest on here?! They deserve the praise Led Zeppelin And Queen get! Their music is better, and they’re much more likable. Same thing with Iron Maiden, these two were probably added by some Metallica elitist fanboy who was upset Bruce Dickinson said Iron Maiden is better than Metallica, even though it’s true. And I love Metallica, there’s no reason they should be here either. - CostcoHotDogsV 3 Comments
One of the bests bands ever, in all of it's ages. Smoke On The Water is just a song. You should listen Knocking at Your Back Door, Perfect Strangers, etc. Really UNDERRATED
Tough one. Deep Purple released really REALLY good albums like In Rock, Machine Head, Burn and Perfect Strangers. Their downfall is their lack of consistency. Lets be honest: quite a few of their albums are pretty much disposable.
Some of their songs are overrated. But some of their songs are also very underrated. I like their underrated songs more than overrated songs. - zxm
Who put Deep Purple on this list? They are the most UNDERrated band (maybe only Rainbow are more UNDERrated).
The riff of Smoke On The Water is easy but sounds amazing - same for the most popular riffs by AC/DC, Black Sabbath, etc.
However, people who have heard only of Smoke On The Water are not competent to comment on Deep Purple! In fact, circa 1970, Deep Purple played the most technically demanding stuff - the solo on Highway Star, drums on Fireball, Burn, and so on. And they nailed it live, too! - Metal_Treasure
They overrated? Are ya kidding me? Oh, and they aren't really a metal band. Shouldn't be on this list for many reasons. - Metal_Treasure
How many people know whitesnake? I think someone mistaken the list with underrated. - zxm
Dio deserves his praise. He defined the traditional heavy metal genre. Holy Diver and Rainbow In The Dark are two of the best metal songs of all time.
Don't disrespect the Dio. Whoever added this should be horribly ashamed of themselves. - ThatoneMetalhead
Get him off! Have you heard Rainbow In The Dark? - CostcoHotDogs
Dio,the one and only legend,most influental metal musician to be considered overrated? Very funny how little people know about metal - DejanKalinicV 4 Comments
This band is not overrated
Neurosis underrated? I strongly disagree. - ThatoneMetalhead
Repetitive and cheap sounding. Most of the melodies aren't even good. (Land of the Dead is utter brilliance, though)
They say that Exodus should be part of the big 4 of thrash instead of anthrax, but even though they've been there since the beginning along with Metallica and slayer, they're nothing special. Bonded by blood is an average album. If there were to be a big 5 of thrash it'll be between Overkill or Testament.
Nothing special? Listen to their masterpieces out of "Bonded by Blood",like "The Toxic Waltz" and "Blacklist" then think about what you said - DejanKalinic
They’re underrated, they deserve what little praise they get. - CostcoHotDogs
Also criminally underrated, like Exodus. - CostcoHotDogs
Suicide Silence? A metal band? Funny. They suck so bad their vocalist crashed his bike so he wouldn't have to do any more crappy music.
They give deathcore a bad name.
Poison sucks! - CostcoHotDogs
Poison is crap that was shoved down the mainstream audience's throats. Yep... they're bad. - ThatoneMetalhead
