321 Merzbow
322 Electric Light Orchestra Electric Light Orchestra The Electric Light Orchestra are an English rock band from Birmingham. They were formed in 1970 by songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne with drummer Bev Bevan.

They have so many great hits. My favorites are "Evil Woman", "Don't Bring Me Down", and "Turn to Stone".

How did they not get into the rock and roll hall of fame?

323 Black Oak Arkansas
324 Nazareth
325 The Sensational Alex Harvey Band
326 Hopesfall
327 Boards of Canada
328 Front 242

Nice to see an Electro-industrial band on the list. I have only one their albums. I'll have to add to that.

329 Coalesce
330 The Heavy The Heavy The Heavy are a British indie rock band from Bath, England, formed in 2007 and signed to Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records and the Bad Son Recording Company. The band consists of Kelvin Swaby, Dan Taylor, Spencer Page and Chris Ellul.
331 The World Is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die
332 American Football
333 Goblin Cock
334 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.

335 Renaissance

Great Prog Rock band, but too unknown. Annie Haslam pitching of 5 octaves is just perfect

336 Steppenwolf Steppenwolf Steppenwolf is a Canadian-American rock group that was prominent from 1968 to 1972. The group was formed in late 1961 in Toronto by vocalist John Kay, keyboardist Goldy McJohn, and drummer Jerry Edmonton.
337 The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band was an American rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman and Gregg Allman, as well as Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson.
338 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
