341 Renaissance

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

344 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.

353 Pentagram Pentagram Pentagram is an American heavy metal band from Alexandria, Virginia, most famous as one of the pioneers of heavy metal, and the subgenre of doom metal in particular.

They got all of the skills, if not more than Black Sabbath (much as I love them too). Just listen to any song off their debut or be Forewarned and you will be sickened at how underrated they are and that they aren't even receiving a portion of the respect and fans that they should have.

354 Blind Melon
355 Big Bam Boo

A great band that broke up too soon and was underplayed. Listen! - Hajj
