Top Ten Most Underrated Bands


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Warrior Soul

Criminally underrated band! Songs like "Love Destruction" or "The Wasteland" are overflowing with power, energy and raw attitude. Brilliant couple of albums between "Drugs, God and the New Republic" and "Salutations from the Ghetto Nation" should have put this band on Top Ten best lists instead of Top Ten underrated. Do yourself a favor and check them out!

This is truly an Underrated rock band
Just listen to: "The Losers" "Lullaby" "The Wasteland" "Children Of The Winter" "The Party" "The Golden Shore", and judge for yourself

Awsame band whit epic ballads, asskicking rock songs and great lyrics

22 Poison Poison Poison is an American hair/glam metal band that achieved great commercial success in the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.
23 Ratt Ratt Ratt is an American heavy metal band that had significant commercial success in the 1980s, with their albums having been certified as gold, platinum, and multi-platinum by the RIAA.

Awesome band that always gets overshadowed by the other big bands at the time.

24 3LW
25 Guns N' Roses

Seriously they just sang music they thought people would like rather than go out on a limb and write something from the heart. I don't think they had the depth to do that anyway

Guns N' Roses are one the best rock bands of all time, but it's sad how life's people know them

Not only are Guns n Roses not underrated, they aren't a good band either.

28 Helloween Helloween Helloween is a German power metal band founded in 1984 in Hamburg, Northern Germany. The band is a pioneering force in the power metal genre, and their second and third studio albums, Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part I and Part II, are considered masterpieces of the genre.

The best power metal band. And power metal is the
Best so it belongs here. You should hear the
Three keeper of the seven keys albums

29 Motley Crue Motley Crue Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

They are sadly absent from or down far low on so many lists. They're great, and they even have some super catchy songs that never became popular.

30 Tool Tool Tool is an American progressive metal/alternative metal band, that was formed in 1990. more.

Now before people call me a "cyber bully" or whatever, I am just stating MY OPINION. If you don't like it, then that's too bad isn't it! It has to be Tool! They should be number 1, although all but one of the rest (I am not keen on Journey) are extremely underrated and more than brilliant, Tool is definitely even more so. Out of the top ten, the next most underrated is... Supertramp. Their music is awesome too, especially "Rudy". Their are a LOT of underrated metal bands actually, and they are mainly progressive. When people say "What is the best metal band? " you always know what the answer will be - Metallica. NO! Yes "Ride The Lightning" is great, but after that they went pretty average. Ever listened to "Master Of Puppets"? Well to my ears, the majority of it is terrible! 80& of the people who enjoy listening to metal will say that not only is this THEIR best, but the best metal album ever! I don't know if I'm weird or anything, ...more

I find it absolutely ridiculous that tool is as underrated as they are. They are my favorite band ever. I know this because when I can't listen to any other band due to boredom, I can put in any tool cd and they always take me on a ride. This is a band that sells out MSG in 15 minutes, but isn't considered as good as Korn ( if you watch those BS VH1 100 greatest lists. I mean seriously is freak on a leash better than sober. I think not. By the way I am a fan of korn too, but they are not better than tool) So that's my two cents.

This talented group of musicians do not get enough credit for the music they create. Each one of them are considered to be some of the best of today in their respected instrument. It's sad that pop artists that create songs with a computer are favored over original artists like these. Plus their songs are technical, the sounds are unlike any other, and their lyrics make you think to find an underlying meaning

Tool is so underrated that they are underrated on a poll featuring underrated bands.

You can't say Queen is an underrates band! Are you kidding me? That's like saying football is underrated. Pink Floyd is my favorite band, but I would never describe them us underrated, and they are more underrated than Queen. If anything, Queen is overrated. Yes is another great band that is very, very underrated. Rush is very, very underrated. Nickelback just plain sucks. Whoever voted for Queen as underrated are idiots.

Rush is the greatest band of all time, yet they are severely underrated. They have so many great albums yet the music critics don't give a crap about this band and that, my friends, is just plain ignorance. Though bands like Led Zeppelin are amazing bands and are some of my favorites, they are extremely overrated and overexplained. Rush is one of those great bands yet no one gives a flying frick about them when they really should

Rush are one of the most technically proficient bands to walk the Earth; combined with a great lyricist in Neil Peart (who is also possibly the greatest drummer of all time) and a passion for theatrics, you get pure epic. However, despite having the fourth most continuous platinum and gold albums ever, they never really hit mainstream. Critics simply didn't 'get' them.

The definition of underrated right here ladies and gentlemen - Brobusky
