Top Ten Most Underrated Bandsheaven
The Contenders: Page 6
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.
Best band ever but I've never met anyone whos even heard of them other than the people I showed them to
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?
"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.
OneRepublic is an amazing band. They are also EXTREMELY underrated. It makes me sad that bands like ONE DIRECTION are more popular than them. Apologize, Secrets, Good Life, All the Right Moves, Counting Stars, I Lived, Stop and Stare, Love Runs Out, Something I Need, and SO much more. Please tell me you recognize a FEW of those. I can't believe bands like Queen and The Beatles are higher than OneRepublic. How are they 127th place? They should number one! These are UNDERRATED bands. Come on! I went to one of their concerts, and trust me, it was GREAT! You won't be disappointed to try out a couple of their songs. Come on people make this higher!
It makes me so sad that they should be on this list. You probably know their songs, but not them. In fact, everyone thinks their most famous song is sung by somebody else! Listen up guys. Apologize is a OneRepublic song! So are Secrets, All the Right Moves, Feel Again, Good Life, Stop and Stare, and a heck of a lot more!
It's true, no one knows who they are unless you name one of their HUGE radio hits. And even then, they'll say, "That's by OneRepublic?! " Another thing that makes them underrated is the fact that no one knows how to spell their NAME right! I see One Republic or Onerepublic ALL THE TIME. It's spelt OneRepublic!
They NEED Top 10. They're an amazing band. Sure, Counting Stars was a HUGE hit, but it was a GOOD hit. - growlbunny
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.V 1 Comment
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
While Green Day has turned into somewhat of a franchise after the Release of "American Idiot", they are still timeless songs like "Brain Stew" and "Basket Case" are incredible. They have put their own spin on punk rock and in my opinion are still one of the greatest bands of all time.
Why the hell is this band so underrated? Possibly because they were the only Grunge act from the UK. And this is really sad because quite possibly Glycerine is one of the best songs ever.
The Bouncing Souls are so underrated like most of the punk rock bands. They are so talented you must look at them if you don't know anything about them. They have great songs such as lean on sheena, Anchors Aweigh, Sing A long forever, gasoline,... - pageg
The majority of the top ten are very well known. This band is not, however they have sold a lot of albums, but still never seen anywhere & unknown
More than 40 million sold yet still unknown
10cc way ahead of its time and no credit given. Look at their histories - and - they continue to make music today.
Are you kidding me. The really deserving bands are the ones with few votesV 1 Comment
So underrated! Santeria is amazing. No questions asked. So is Same In The End. So is Pawn Shop. So is Wrong Way. So is What I Got. So is Jail House. So is Seeds. So is Garden Grove.
My favorite song by them is their cover of "were only gonna die from our own arrogance" by Bad Religion.
What happens when 2 genious of music love each other: they combine a great band( sometimes underrated :) :p) that writes(un42nately "wrote") so many classics together - my advice is; please don't forget 'em... :-) - heaven
The Beatles wouldn't be the great band we now know them as if not for Yoko Ono. Of course when a musical genius goes on to start her own band it will be great.
