81 Alice in Chains Alice in Chains Alice in Chains is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987 by guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell and original lead vocalist Layne Staley.

I will never understand why they didn't get as much recognition as they deserved. Musically astounding and lyrically brilliant...Rooster is the best song ever. Wonderful band, and still are! William DuVall gets WAY more hate than he deserves

Sort of underrated but still played on radio stations. Nirvana overshadowed them, and in my opinion AiC is definitely better than Nirvana.

I think instead of alice in chains, mad season should be on here, and way up on the list. Layne is a great singer in both bands, but aic was more popular

82 Boston Boston Boston is an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, that achieved their most notable successes during the 1970s and 1980s.

Absolutely fantastic band. Perfect guitars, drums, and vocals.

This list could very well be re named worlds most popular bands

83 Versailles
84 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

This band is so AMAZING! I like all their songs!

These people are fake. Horrible, just horrible.

85 Triumph Triumph Triumph is a Canadian hard rock power trio that was popular in the late 1970s through the 1980s. Between the band's 16 albums and DVDs, Triumph has received 18 gold and 9 platinum awards in Canada and the United States.

A phenomenal band whose musical prowess is quite frankly unparalleled by nearly all. Consisting of merely 3 members, Rik Emmett mixes soothing classical guitar playing with hard, fast, hard rock shredding to compose some of the most prodigious and intricate riffs and verses, kept in beat by the wonderfully rhythmical beats of Gil Moore on drums and sharing lead vocals with Emmett, along with the bass of Mike Levine. This band surpasses all that I have ever heard, which is an extremely extensive list rangin from both extremely popular and almost unheard of bands from the 60's to early 90's.

Forgot how good they were, maybe top five all time

86 Creed Creed Creed is an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consists of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.
87 Pixies Pixies The Pixies are an American alternative rock band formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. The group disbanded in 1993 in acrimonious circumstances, but reunited in 2004. The group currently consists of founders Black Francis, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering.

Easily the most unique sounding band on this list. They were capable of blending genres that you never thought could mingle. Every album has its own flavor, and is worth listening to hundreds of times.

FAR FAR FAR more underrated then any other band on this list they had terrible sales in the United States even though they influenced every alternative band after them (Nirvana, Pearl Jam etc... ) Listen to Surfa Rosa for the first time and try to guess what year the album came I guarantee your at least 5 years off.

How is this so far up?

88 Motörhead Motörhead Motörhead were an English heavy metal band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister, who was the sole constant member; guitarist and songwriter Larry Wallis; and drummer Lucas Fox. The band's harsh vocals and fast paced tempos helped inspire speed metal and ...read more.

"We're Motorhead and we play rock and roll" as Lemmy would say. Despite not wanting to associate themselves with punk and metal, they were hugely influential in the NWOBHM scene and inspired bands like Metallica. If one were to listen to Lemmy and crew, it would seem like you took AC/DC and turned them into a bunch of Hell's Angels as far as the attitude of the music. Unlike AC/DC though, Motorhead was not afraid to deviate from their norm every so often such as with the orchestra strings, gloomy organ sound, and surprisingly tender lyrics of '1916'. Lemmy had also collaborated with Ozzy Osbourne for the 'No More Tears' album co-writing 'Mama I'm Coming Home'. You would think that with all this, Lemmy would be residing in a nice mansion in Malibu but instead lives in a small apartment in West Hollywood. Still, that is rather fitting for Lemmy and his rock and roll persona.

89 Thirteen Senses

They have to be "The most Underrated Band ever" I mean they are so underrated that they are nowhere in this list. They have got amazing songs like "Into the fire", "The Salt Wound Routine", "Thru the glass" the music is simply amazing and their lead singer William South has an amazing voice. Thirteen Senses is the real deal, also even though they are underrated I feel happy about it because we have seen what becomes of the so called "best bands" also I feel pretty pleased that I am privileged enough to be one of the very few people who know about this band and listens to their awesome songs as others don't.

98 NOFX NOFX NOFX are an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band was formed in 1983 by vocalist/bassist Fat Mike and guitarist Eric Melvin. Drummer Erik Sandin joined NOFX shortly after.

Really underrated just because they didn't sell out to a major label in the pop-punk explosion of the 90s. They have a ton of great songs and are better than a lot of bands on the radio now.

99 Weezer Weezer Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.
100 Evanescence Evanescence Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

Most underrated music artist! Can't belive that Call me when you're sober only gets 28 672 402 views on YouTube while We can't stop by Miley Cyrus gets 471 135 316 views. That's just... sad because Miley is talentless while Amy Lee has one of the most beautiful voices ever
