Most Underrated Genesis Songs

The Top Ten Most Underrated Genesis Songs

Invisible Touch

Are you kidding me? This song is their most overrated piece ever.

Home by the Sea

Best genesis song ever...

So good. enough said. surprising to see invisible touch on here, I voted that as the most overrated.


This song proves that calling all stations isn't a that bad of an album

Tell Me Why

There are some superb songs on the We Can't Dance album that are overshadowed by No Son Of Mine, etc. This one of them.

Everybody seems to hate this song. I don't know why: it isn't even offensive. It's not a genesis highlight, but itis sure a good song

The Battle of Epping Forest

Truly great track Gabriel's changing vocals superb band musically hit the heights just awesome

Don't know why this one isn't considered higher among Genesis fans.

Better than Firth of Fifth, the best track on Selling England.

Supernice atmosphere, nice contrast between british gangs and robin hood, just awesome.

Not About Us
Match of the Day

Just great song. Great singer (much better than the last PC, since Hackett's departure)

Keep It Dark

So underrated a great song!

Mad Man Moon

One of their best songs. - MaxPap

Definitely awesome (maybe heathaze is even more underrated.


The Contenders


I rarely hear this song talked about, but it's one of my favorites of all time. Pay more attention to this one, it really shows the greatness of Genesis throughout and is a fantastic song (in my opinion)!

Amazing just listen to it.

Driving the Last Spike

Hardly heard but up there with many of the great longs. Great story telling with great instrumental break. Behind Home by the Sea, Domino, Firth, Musical Box, Cinema Show and obviously Supper's Ready, but not far behind

Their most underrated by far. Fabulous social historic comment and great instrumentation

Time Table

You know, its really sad this song never got much recognition. that's probably because its in between to long tracks which constantly cast a shadow upon it. Its such a great track though, in fact, it stands out just as much as Suppers Ready. Please give it a chance, short doesn't mean bad. - Slipperyjack40

A unfortunate little known masterpiece tucked onto Foxtrot. Horizon's from the same album should also be considered spectacular. I think Supper's Ready is 22 minutes of pure brilliance; it's so great that the other songs are often overlooked.

The Fountain of Salmacis
Burning Rope

I don't think it gets more underrated than this. The album is overshadowed by Follow You Follow Me, but contains many hidden gems - none of which are better than Burning Rope.

Can-Utility and the Coastliners

Brilliant lyrics and catchy riff. "The waves surround the sinking throne". Later they mistimed the mellotron riff in the live versions, but the album version is spot on.

Get 'Em Out By Friday

Wow. Just wow.

Go West Young Man (In the Motherlode)
Robbery, Assault and Battery
Just a Job to Do
The Waiting Room

Am I the only person who likes this song? Sure it's a bit "weird" but this instrumental is certainly one of their best

White Mountain
Duke's Travels

A monumental track that is never counted among the band's best. It's just as good as Firth Of Fifth and The Cinema Show, as it is a throwback to the SEBTP album.

The Colony of Slippermen
The Return of the Giant Hogweed
Calling All Stations

Superb beginning to a stunning album.

Aisle of Plenty
The Lamia

The precursor to The Musical Box, Supper's Ready, Firth Of Fifth, The Cinema Show and many others

Way of the World
More Fool Me
Behind the Lines

Amazing song. Like, 19845710384756 key changes, catchy as a mthrfker, and all around a great guitar performance and great song.


Really unknown early Genesis song but truely great.
