Extremely terrible live.

173 Rammstein Rammstein Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte and Industrial Metal band consisting of Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (electric bass), Christoph Schneider (drums) and Christian Lorenz (keyboard), that formed in 1994 in Berlin . more.

Rammstein is a German band and a lot of people in America will not listen to them because they do not know what they are saying. But music is not only about the words and you can always go look up the translations, that is what I have to do. They have some really awesome guitar solos and drum solos and the singer, Till Lindemann's voice itself is enough to get anyone listening to it. They really are a unique band. Give Rammstein a chance before you knock them to the side for being German and they do speak English in some songs... Rarely. Du hast... Amerika... Rein Raus... Mutter... All amazing songs. People should really start listening to them. I promise nobody will regret it.

Very awesome band.. Mind blowing vocals and one of the best bands-nowadays hear Sonne, Ich Will, Reise Reise, Benzin, Amerika, Stein Um Stein, Rammstein..
Very underrated band really.. And I wanna know how pantera is in 1st spot for underrated metal band? They are very good but seriously overrated Dimebag's giutars wasn, t that good that people think.. And they are overrated band but one of my favourite bands.. - nooreldeen

176 Motorhead Motorhead Motörhead were an English heavy metal/Hard Rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister, who was the sole constant member; guitarist and songwriter Larry Wallis; and drummer Lucas Fox. The band's harsh vocals and fast paced tempos helped inspire speed more.

They're NOT a metal band. Listen to Lemmy - he says the same: not metal. - Metal_Treasure

You can call apples oranges but they're still apples. Even if you and Lemmy(R.I.P) say they're a rock'n'roll band(of course they released certified rock'n'roll albums such as their debut) the majority of their stuff is great heavy metal(Overkill , No Remorse, Sacrifice, Bad Magic, Snake Bite Love, Inferno, Orgasmatron).

177 Damned Nation
178 Death to Die

No way in hell are they underrated first there not really heavy metal and secondly all there songs sound the same very generic and boring overrated to hell

Ac/Dc underrated? How?
In my honest opinion they are the definition of overrated! How people are voting this and why is this band is in this list is beyond me! - Nord666

1- not underrated, but still awesome
2- not metal - Rocker00

180 Megadeth Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica. They have released 15 studio albums to date, and have gone through many lineup changes, with Dave more.

Megadeth? Underrated? Let's talk about the fact that they are number four on the list of best metal bands. Pretty much every rock fan (including non-metalheads) has heard of Megadeth. Slayer is a popular band, yet they are not as popular as Megadeth. So please tell me, how are Megadeth underrated?

I vote megadeth, and fyi a7x is NOT underrated, they are the most overrated band of the 21st century
