The Contenders: Page 6

101 Clique Girlz
102 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.

Best band ever but I've never met anyone whos even heard of them other than the people I showed them to

103 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?

104 OneRepublic OneRepublic OneRepublic is an American pop rock band. Formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2002 by lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act.

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

105 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.

107 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

108 Green Day Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some more.

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.

109 Bush Bush Bush are a British rock band formed in London, England in 1992. The band found their immediate success with the release of their debut album Sixteen Stone in 1994, which is certified 6× multi-platinum by the RIAA.

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.

110 The Bouncing Souls

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.
