Fun, surfer, artsy Party Rock. Dave Navarros solos are crazy and Three days is a masterpiece.

150 Melvins Melvins The Melvins are an American band that formed in 1983. They usually perform as a trio, but in recent years have performed as a four piece with two drummers.
151 Whispered Whispered

A more or less young band, with a very unique style, something that's rather hard to find these days in metal. They once again prove, that metal is one of the best, if not THE best, music genre to mix and match with all sorts of unusual influences. They combine Melodic Death Metal with Japanese instruments, melodies and texts about glory wars and fearless samurai. Their debut album "Thousand Swords" already was really good, but with the second and latest album "Shogunate Macabre" they really took the cake. The vocals are better, the sound is more refined and the writing is better. It also feels a lot more serious, something that "Thousand Swords" had a serious lack of. If you're looking for a very unique metal band, or just want to hear a completely new style of melodic death metal, look no further than Whispered. My favorite Songs are: Lady Of The Wind, Hold The Sword, Kappa and Blindfold

Whispered is a band that needs to get a lot more attention. They combine Melodeath Metal with Japanese folk influences, proving once again that you can mix metal with nearly everything. And it just works incredibely well. Their debut album "Thousand Swords" is a really good album but "Shogunate Macabre" is the real deal. The vocals are improved, the sound is refined and the whole album feels generally more serious, something that the first album lacked. My favorite songs have to be Hold The Sword and Lady Of The Wind. Blindfold also shouldn't be overlooked.

If you're looking for a rather young band with a unique style, look no further than Whispered.

155 Northlane

Some of the band that they've chose on here is stupid. How is AC/DC underrated? Avenged Sevenfold? That's underrated?
This is underrated.
Northlane is a metalcore band, and an amazing, original one at that. It's not your typical, generic metalcore. Listen to their songs Quantum Flux and Rot, and you will know what I mean.
