Buckcherry is very underrated. I have seen 1000's of shows and because at least 10 times (always a smokin show) Another underrated is Living Children but that was a long-long time ago and have never heard them. In more contemporary times I would say - Hurt - Smile Empty Soul - and finally coming into recognition Joe Bonamassa

222 Versailles
223 Story of the Year
224 Kill the Alarm

The World needs to hear this guy!

225 The Replacements The Replacements

Legends, influenced almost every other alternative rock band that formed in the 80s

226 Shinedown Shinedown Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001 and founded by members Brent Smith, Brad Stewart, Jasin Todd, and Barry Kerch.

The song 45 is the most amazing song ever, It's literal lyrics imply he wants to kill himself, but really it is about hope, and overcoming tragedy in life.

They'll get their Big Break one of these years! - Curti2594

Shinedown makes amazing music, okay?

Just underrated

227 Slade Slade

EVERYONE KNOWS QUIET RIOTS VERSION OF COME ON FEEL THE NOISE.

Me : "Who made Come on Feel The Noise? "
Friend : "Quiet Riot! "

228 Phish Phish Phish is a band known for musical improvisation, extended jams, blending of genres, and dedicated fan base.

Best band ever. Very underrated as well

229 Toto Toto Toto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Van Nuys in Los Angeles. The band's current lineup consists of Joseph Williams, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Steve Lukather, plus touring members Leland Sklar and Shannon Forrest.

I don't understand why some are groups such as Queen, Guns N Rouses etc.. in the top of the list. They have sold more than 100 million albums, won many Grammy awards and you call them underrated? I mean, really! Toto is one of the most underrated bands of all time, together with Scorpions, The Outfield and many more. They've sold only 35 million albums to the date. They had many problems with production & lead singer what maybe caused their current status. They could be better if production let them make music they wanted and if lead singer was in the band the whole time. Whatever, besides all this, they are highly underrated. And that's the fact.

230 Crush 40

If you hear one of their songs like Open Your Heart, you'd know they have all the qualities of an awesome rock band. Amazing riffs and solos, matching vocals and catchy drumming. I think that because they primarily make music for Sonic the Hedgehog games, they go overlooked by anyone not in the fan base. Seriously, Crush 40 is epic and very underrated.

Yes! I think they are very underrated, Sonic the hedgehog fans may know this band but that isn't enough to make many people know who they are, they deserve to be on best song lists and such, they are so amazing! One of the best bands ever!

This band may not be the best but they have great music and they do SONIC games that makes them awesome

231 Saint Asonia Saint Asonia Saint Asonia is a Canadian rock band consisting of former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier, Mike Mushok, Corey Lowery, and Rich Beddoe.
232 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

By far one of the most underrated bands. I have no idea how they are rated so low on this list!

#272? What? You people are sick. God damn.

233 10cc
234 Arctic Monkeys Arctic Monkeys The Arctic Monkeys, otherwise known as the Death Ramps, are a British indie rock band formed in 2002 in Sheffield, England. The band consists of Alex Turner (lead vocalist, songwriter, electric and rhythm guitarist), Jamie Cook (electric and rhythm guitarist, songwriter), Matt Helders (percussionist, ...read more.

You may think what the hell arctic monkeys are so popular but when you think about it they really aren't! AM was a fantastic album and yet, you never heard anyone say " ARCTIC MONKEYS RELEASED A NEW ALBUM! " Whenever you ask people what they are listening to it's never arctic monkeys. They deserve more. Literally, to this day I am still rocking out to AM. It's my favourite rock album ever and if you haven't heard it what are you still doing reading my comment get to it.

They are not underrated, almost everyone in my school knows them. - malamJONES

235 Nightmare (Naitomea)

They are absolutely BRILLIANT! My Japanese isn't that great but let's try:
Naitomea to iu baando wa hontoni sugoi to omou!
(I think the band Nightmare is incredibly fantastic! )

236 The Bravery

It's my favorite band and it's so underrated none of my friends have even heard about this band and yet I love it. If you like rock music you should definitely listen to their songs like "time won't let me go", "bad sun", "tyrant, "above and below" and "the spectator".

The Bravery is one of the most underrated bands today. So many of their songs are used in movies, yet they are way too less famous than they deserve to be. Their best songs are "Time won't let me go", "Believe", "Above and below", and so on...

237 Hurt

Amazing Rock Band - Extremely underappreciated

Never got the attention they deserved

238 Smile Empty Soul Smile Empty Soul

My favorite band of all time, they just had too much swearing in most songs to go mainstream I think but take a listen to their cds and you will vote this higher

239 Gov't Mule

If you love the Allman Brothers Band, most likely, you'll love Gov't Mule. Warren Haynes who was a guitarist for the Allman Brothers, is the lead singer for Gov't Mule. They sound just like any other great southern rock band. The only difference is they produce music today.

240 The Zombies

Amazing band! They had hits in America, like their song " She's Not There. " They should be inducted into the RandR Hall of Fame. If you go there, you'll see one the members, Paul Atkinson's guitar. Vote Zombies!

They are a very underrated band. - domfincrag
