181 Badfinger Badfinger Badfinger was a British rock band that, in their most prolific lineup, consisted of Pete Ham, Mike Gibbins, Tom Evans, Joey Molland and Bob Jackson.

They were cut too short, if Peter Hamm would not have died we would have heard more of their great music.

182 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Radiohead encompasses everything a band should be. They are experimental, unique and have an huge range of amazing songs that they don't get much credit for - in Rainbows, for example. This album is undoubtedly one of their best, and I could listen to it all day.

However even though this is the case, I don't think they're underrated as such. OK Computer was a MASSIVE hit album and they had quite a good career and are still going.
I'd say they're one of the best and most influential rock bands in the world but not the most underrated. I think in the 130 - 150 spot is good for them - SMU2WG

183 Foo Fighters Foo Fighters Foo Fighters is an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of his previous band. The band consists of obviously Dave Grohl (lead vocalist, songwriter), Pat Smear (lead guitarist, pianist), Nate Mendel ...read more.

This is the most beautiful band ever. And Dave Grohl (maybe you know him from Nirvana) is the president of this band. THEY ROCKS!

184 Keane Keane Keane are an English rock band from Battle, East Sussex, formed in 1995. The group currently comprises Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes, Jesse Quin and Tom Chaplin.

Keane are so underrated and are truly amazing... They simply are the best band with the best musicians and Tom's voice is absolutely outstanding..

185 The Byrds The Byrds The Byrds were an American rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1964. The band underwent multiple line-up changes throughout its existence, with frontman Roger McGuinn remaining the sole consistent member, until the group disbanded in 1973. Although they only managed to attain the huge commercial ...read more.

Shocking that this group has been all but forgotten.
At one time they proudly bore the title of "the American Beatles'

186 Wishbone Ash

Argus was great Pilgrimage ahead of it's time...Incredible twin guitars...

The band got into mainstream after improving after their debut album got negative feedback . In 1978, ...read more.

One of the greatest rock bands off all time. The founding fathers of heavy metal. They where around in the early 60s

They deserve more credit. Black Sabbath is one of the most influential bands in the world and they helped inspire many of the bands we have today; they're practically the Godfather of rock and roll. They rule!

Wouldn't necessarily say underrated, everyone credits them for the invention of metal. I do agree that more people should listen to them then say, basically everything nowadays that's mainstream.

Kind of underrated, in relation to bands like AC/DC and Queen, but not even remotely underrated in relation to bands like ELO, Styx and Blue Oyster Cult.

191 Boston Boston Boston is an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, that achieved their most notable successes during the 1970s and 1980s.

Boston is known for songs like More than a Feeling and Peace of Mind, but they have a bunch of really good songs! Rock and Roll Band, Smokin', Something About You, etc.

They have some really good songs and their guitar and organ combination rocks
