Most Underrated Rock Bandscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 11
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.V 1 Comment
Tremendous catalog with a large number of songs that are much better than their long list of hits. Also, great live performers who are able to connect with their audience either in an arena or a small outdoor venue. They define underrated.
Best classic progressive rock and roll band ever. Amazing live, they don't miss! ~ If you haven't seen them, you must as a bucket list item! Songs that matter, lyrics that hit home, musical talent over the top. Someone described it best, its like 6 Beethovens on the stage at once!
They are awesome.. Ashcroft is one of best singers in today's music industry with unbelievable voice. And Mcabbee is just guitar genius. Songs like Weeping Willow, Velvet Morning, On Your Own, Drugs Don't Work, Love Is Noise and many many others are legendary and very very underrated. And all rights for only one song that became popularity which belongs to them - Bittersweet Symphony was wrongfully withdrawn from owners.
Oh my god. If you see how much their records are worth the you'll see. You look at Pink Floyd and they sold MILLIONS of albums yet they are worth $50-$100. Status quo? $1 dollar bin. So underrated it's not even funny. Better than acdc. Listen to roll over lay down. A fantastic band that has been lost in time. Please listen to this band.
I remember this band have, nt heaed them inyears
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
Best band ever in my eyes. Not only did they sell like garbage within their own time, but they later would be recognized for being so influential. It simply took 30 years for the rest of the world to catch up to what they were doing. Overall great band and everyone should give them a listen. I'm listening to them while I write this. Overall better then these other bands, really. Highly experimental, intelligent, meaningful music here. Listen to their 1967 album, The Velvet Underground and Nico, to start things off then pick up the other ones too. Great great stuff. I'm 17 years old, and I know this stuff is top shelf.
Muse and other overrated crappy "rock" bands over Velvet Underground? What kind of reality this is? Those kids obviously don't even know what underrated means!
Agreed, very underrated. Solid rock. Lou Reed was a pioneer. Still it's hard to listen to him extol the virtues of drug abuse.
One of the most important band ever. Without them no punk - ChatonNoir
Pioneering Progressive Rock Band, very musical. They deserve better, no doubt. Check out "Yours is No Disgrace"
They have a lot of good songs, although most of them revolve around similar topics, mostly alchoholism, betrayal, and unrequited love. However, that being said, they have one quality that makes me love them: The endings to their songs are generally the best part. How annoying is it when a song is good the whole way through and has a really crappy ending? Not with this band.
They have so many good songs and are not as famous as they should be.
This is the best band ever and their music is so underrated
Not in mainstream, pure dynamics with amazing tune and every song has such deep meaning. Love it!
An incredibly, criminally underrated band. Huge catalog of complex, imaginative music rivaling the Beatles. To make a "Best of" compilation you could easily fill 4 cds with no bad songs in the bunch.
Popular but if they were an American band they would be extremely popular. - tenthsage
Peerless vocals nothing comes close
Pearl Jam are very underrated mainly because they refused to be commercial sellouts so not as many people have had a chance to listen to them. It just goes to show how much of a great band they are when Eddie has performed with the likes of Pink Floyd, The Who, The Rolling Stones, REM etc.
Not most underrated but it most be at top 10 at least. They are one of the best bands in the history. Better than nirvana alice in chains Foo Fighters. Best grunge band. - Bilgehankonya
Every day I'm reminded of how amazing Pearl Jam is when I listen to one of their songs. I even think of my 30th favorite PJ song as an incredibly awesome song. Even songs below that! This band is rated pretty high, but they still could be much higher, which is why I put Pearl Jam at number one. - Songsta41
172, well now they're at least underrated - DisturbedpotatoV 2 Comments
This band is really, really great, right next to Nightmare though!
