Top Ten Most Underrated Bands


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Bauhaus Bauhaus
142 Sunny Day Real Estate

One of the most underrated Grunge acts of all time, despite being pioneers for post-hardcore. Their albums all have very dark tones and they were one of the more quieter of the grunge acts of the 90s. However, much like Nirvana, if they could put their minds to it they could write absolutely beautiful songs like Guitars and Video Games. Fantastic band.

One of the best bands of the 90s, but no one knows about them.

143 The Grateful Dead The Grateful Dead The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. Ranging from quintet to septet, the band is known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, rock, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, space rock, for live performances more.

What is with all the bands above these guys. They are al not underrated bands. Bands like Green Day queen and Pink Floyd? Do you live under a rock?

144 SafetySuit
145 Thin Lizzy Thin Lizzy Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Their leader Phil Lynott was composer or co-composer of almost all of the band's songs, and the first black Irishman to achieve commercial success in the field of rock music. Thin Lizzy's most successful songs, "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" more.

Probably the most underrated band ever cause they were the pioneers of the dual lead guitars and Phil's lyrics are simply perfect in every way and Brian Downey is probably the most underrated drummer ever cause he kicks butt and Lso even James hetfield said that the best metal band he thinks is black sabbath but all around music wise thin lizzy is the best and another reason there album. Live and dangerous is considered to be the best live Album ever so yeah very underrated

Excellent suggestion certainly a top 70's underrated band.

146 Sixx:A.M.

In my opinion Sixx AM are one of the most underrated bands of all time, and they deserve so much more attention then they've got. They're seriously among the best bands if you ask me, not just in the music, but in the lyrics also, they're amazing, have an awesome sound and great message...

147 38 Special

This band is amazing and seriously underrated. Go to Wikipedia and see the little information of this band - enough said. "Like no other Night" my favorite, "If I'd been the One", "Caught up in You", "Chain Lightning". When Chain Lightning came out, I played that song over and over until I decided to listen to "Like no other Night". This band should be in the Hall of Fame next to Aretha Franklin - sarcasm. Seriously though.

38 Special is extremely underrated. It seems like nobody knows their name, but they have some popular songs: "hold on loosely" "rocking into the night" "caught up in you". These are just a few great songs by a great but underappreciated band.

148 Blue October

So very underrated. Songs like "Hate Me", "Overweight", "Blue Does", "Calling You" and "Blue Skies" are amazing and apart from "Hate Me" none of them ever reached large popularity. They deserve so much more recognition.

149 Blue Öyster Cult Blue Öyster Cult Blue Öyster Cult is an American rock band from Long Island, New York, whose most successful work includes the hard rock and heavy metal songs "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", "Godzilla" and "Burnin' for You".
150 Prefab Sprout

154 The Shins
155 Skillet Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

Very underrated. I love their music. - Singer4Freedom

156 Rixton
157 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

Holy s**t, this band constructs their songs intricately and put forth some of the most thought provoking lyrics in all of rock music. The problem is, people keep comparing them to tool and never express gratitude to this band no matter how unique their new songs R. It is mind boggling, and it is even worse to the fact that quite a lot of people have heard of this band. Oh well its just my opinion.

158 Trivium Trivium Trivium are an American heavy metal band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 1999. After getting signed to Roadrunner Records in 2004, the band has released seven studio albums and nineteen singles.
159 Focus
160 AC/DC AC/DC AC/DC are a Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014. They were fronted by Bon Scott until his untimely death due to alcohol poisoning in 1980, after which they hired Brian Johnson to more.

Why is AC/DC on this list? They are incredibly overrated!

I like AC/DC but calling them underrated is foolish. - jrodz

Overrated. - zxm
