49 Dire Staits

Most overrated band of all time hands down, I mean how much of you actually heard this guys, I bet half, and their music is so deep you can feel it, if they want you to be sad you'll be sad, if the want you to be happy you'll be happy, at least give them a shot

Being overrated is bad, you mean underrated. You kinda had a bad fail there.

Sultans of Swing, Telegraph Road and Brothers in Arms should be in the top 100 of Rolling Stones 500 greatest songs yet fail to get even one mention. So many bands above Dire Straits in this list are in no way underrated at all E.G. Queen, ABBA, The Fray which has completely distorted this list. Dire Straits should be number 1.

Hmm.. So underrated that their entry name is spelled incorrectly?

Of course Jesus says,"I'll cure it soon."

50 Supertramp

Did anyone actually read the title? I mean, Abba, Queen, System, Tool, Pink Floyd= underrated? Lolwut?

Anyway, supertramp is a great band and deserves more credit than they get.

they're just awesome :D the music is melodic, but is funky and rocking when it has to be, and the lyrics are really great. just a really great band altogether

I often hear piano parts and rythyms in today's song that make me think, that sounds a lot like Supertramp. If there's any knock on them, it's that they often put two or three solid-to-great songs on an album with eight others that weren't so great. If you compiled their "greatest hits, " that cd would be up there with the greatest hits of any other artist on this list

Very underrated band, but one of the best...!

51 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

Daughtry needs more credit than they deserve. Daughtry has amazing, meaningful lyrics as well as awesome instrumentals. Each one of their albums are worth listening to. The band has great rock anthems as well as power ballads and songs in between. Daughtry has got it all and is definitely quality music.

52 Sodom Sodom Sodom is a German thrash metal band from Gelsenkirchen, formed in 1981. They have gone through many line-up changes, leaving bassist vocalist Tom Angelripper as the only constant member.
53 Bad Company Bad Company

They have some good songs, such as "Blue, silver and gold", "Rock and Roll fantasy", "Seagull", "Bad company", "Ready for love", and "Fell like Making love".

Bad Company has some great songs like "Ready for Love" and "Bad Company". They are pretty underrated.

54 Symphony X Symphony X Symphony X is an American progressive metal band from Middletown, New Jersey. Founded in 1994, the band consists of guitarist Michael Romeo, keyboardist Michael Pinnella, drummer Jason Rullo, lead vocalist Russell Allen and bassist Michael Lepond.
55 Simple Plan Simple Plan Simple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

Simple Plan are totally underrated, every pop punk band gets attention more than them. Seriously Simple Plan in my opinion deserve more attention, because they're really worth it. I mean what's better in All Time Low (for example) than in Simple Plan? Nothing against ATL by the way, but they get A LOT more attention than SP do, and I think they sound the same in a way or another :/... Anyways that was my opinion...

I've been listening to Simple Plan when I was 2 years old. They opened up my ears for music, and I would like to thank them for that one day. Because, if it wasn't for them, I would have never known what music was in the first place.

Simple plan really got so underrated :(

56 Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist more.

Who cares about this band? No one, because they are quite possibly one of the worst bands ever! Those who do like this band either don't have a clue about what good music is or don't want to know about good music and those are people that don't need to be in your life!

57 Dream Theater Dream Theater Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", but had to change its name to Dream Theater later. more.

No recognition for amazing talent and music. Octavarium, Metropolis, Images and Words, etc. Nobody rivals the true awesomeness of this band except for Rush. I can tell you from experience that nobody knows about these guys. I talk with 30-40 year olds and they have never heard of Dream Theater. People don't want to listen because the songs are too long. Attention spans...

They have so many hit songs that will blow your mind! Not just like plenty of 1 hit wonder rock bands out there. I recommend listening to Octavarium and Count o Tuscany THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH!

Everyone has to hear this band at least once in a lifetime, they are truly amazing.

Every musician is the best at what they do

58 Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys
59 Simon & Garfunkel

Hey, they are group, 2 - difference: it has 2 members - just like their song "Sound of Silence" (lyric: People talking without speaking)
People deciding without analizing

P. S. : Let me tell you one more thing; their very best songs like "The Boxer" and the "Sound of Silence" weren't arranged by any other person... - heaven

60 Poets of the Fall

This is an amazing band, but they are underrated. Which is a good thing. I'm not gonna force everyone who doesn't know this band to listen to them, because we all know what happens to popular music bands overtime. But speaking of the band, The Distance is my favorite song!

Poets of the Fall is terrific!

I bet no one has even heard their songs... The ones who have heard know that this band is simply the greatest of all time... It's not about whether the music is complex, it's about the music which stirs your soul.
"Without silence, there can be no music"

Laugh out loud 37th on the list.. Should be first.. I am kidding? Then listen just any song of this band... The amazing thing about this band - All songs are beautiful

Because excellent doesn't always mean it's popular.
