Just listen to Three Days.

186 Manic Street Preachers

One of the most underrated bands ever with epic hits such as Motorcycle Emptiness and Show Me The Wonder. The fact that they are so low down on this list is a crime.

187 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Imagine Dragons only really got famous for some songs, like "Radioactive", "It's Time" and "Demons". There are other songs from them that are really good, like "Bleeding Out", "Underdog", and one of the newer ones, "Whatever It Takes". Try listening to them, and you just might enjoy.

Makes songs that are so famous like radioactive yet no one really cares about them.

188 The Band The Band The Band was a Canadian-American roots rock group formed in 1965 . Which originally consisting of Rick Danko (bass guitar, double bass, fiddle, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones, trumpet), Richard Manuel (piano, drums, vocals) and Robbie Robertson more.
189 Bee Gees Bee Gees The Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

Unjustly associated by too many people with their disco output only - but they proved, before and after that, that they were capable of very different kinds of music. And even their disco output is among the best of that genre.

190 Erasure

They sure are very underrated indeed. It appears that a lot of people notice their most famous songs ("Always", "A Little Respect", "Sometimes") but they (especially critics as well) do not notice the extreme talent and chemistry this pop duo has. They have hardly won any major music awards (Grammy's etc. ) or just awards at all (just one award in their entire career for nearly 30 years), their songs hardly got to No. 1 in the charts, their debut album "Wonderland" flopped and did not get the attention that it deserved, hardly any of their albums and songs get a brief mention on the best albums/songs of all time lists (even though I believe they should since a majority of them have stood the test of time in my opinion), hardly any famous and well-respected musicians in the entire music industry cite them as influences and some casual listeners can be homophobic towards this band. But most of their music is among the most beautiful I have ever ...more

191 Catherine Wheel

You beat me to the punch. I have all their CDs. Wish they would reunite.

A amazing British Alternative act from the 90s, they are a must listen.

192 Camel Camel

They were among the best proponents of Progressive Rock during the 1970s, on par with King Crimson, I should say. But for unfathomable reasons, their music did not reach the number of ears it should have. In terms of musical ability, I'd rank them right up there - alongside Crimson, Pink Floyd. It has indeed been a loss for humanity - missing out on the genius of Andrew Latimer!

193 Living Colour Living Colour Living Colour is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1984. Stylistically, the band's music is a creative fusion influenced by heavy metal, punk rock, funk, jazz, hip hop and alternative rock.
194 t.A.T.u.
195 Keane Keane Keane are an English rock band from Battle, East Sussex, formed in 1995. The group currently comprises Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes, Jesse Quin and Tom Chaplin.

One of the most underrated bands. It really deserves more hits with beautiful music & meaningful lyrics. Most of the people from this generation likes most other overrated bands with no such musical taste.

196 Travis

Wow! One the best selections. Have most of their albums.

This is the most underrated band.

197 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.

Can make any crappy song awesome.

198 Gentle Giant Gentle Giant Gentle Giant were a British progressive rock band active between 1970 and 1980. The band was known for the complexity and sophistication of its music and for the varied musical skills of its members.

Seriously, give these guys a listen. One of the best prog bands from the 1970s, right up there with bands like Yes and Jethro Tull. Nobody's more underrated!

199 Alice Cooper Alice Cooper Alice Cooper was an American rock band formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1964. The band consisted of lead singer Vince Furnier, Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith.

People forget how many hits Alice with his original band and as a solo act he had in the 70's. Still rocking today, it is a shame classic rock radio plays the same three or four Cooper hits over and over again. He had 14 Top 40 singles back in the day. Even today his newer albums are amazing and while some fans seem to live in the 70's, this guy is as good in 2017 as he was 40 years ago. His voice is strong, the energy is still there, and the great music and theatrics. Some of his best work has been in the last few decades with masterpieces like Hey Stoopid, The Last Temptation, Brutal Planet, and W2MN. This guy is rock royalty and should be treated as such. The best hard rocker ever! - warrantsbestgirl

Another band/musician who needs more credit and recognition. He rocks! And his concerts are all the more interesting because he actually puts on a show. Crutches, snakes, baby dolls, guillotine, etc. He's a showman!

200 Hoobastank Hoobastank Hoobastank is an American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California with lead singer Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen.

Just listen to some of their songs... And you will know the reason of their name in this list...89S.L. A
