241 W.A.S.P. W.A.S.P. W.A.S.P. is an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 by Blackie Lawless, who is the only remaining original member of the band.

How is W.A.S.P 264 when Deep Purple is number 1?! W.A.S.P is infinitely better than them!

VERY UNDERRATED, PLEASE VITE UP

242 Europe Europe Europe is a Swedish rock band formed in Upplands Väsby, Stockholm in 1979 under the name Force by vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno.

Highly underrated, mostly known for "The Final Countdown" while they have some really deep and great sounding songs.

244 Social Distortion Social Distortion Social Distortion is an American punk rock band formed in 1978 in Fullerton, California. The band currently consists of Mike Ness, Jonny Wickersham, Brent Harding, David Hidalgo, Jr., and David Kalish.

First time I listened to them, they didn't sound like any ordinary rock band. They were different, I don't know how or why, but I think their works are unique and they deserve more recognition.

245 Big Country

Timing was off for American music, but many great songs and albums for those who found them

248 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

In one page of Yahoo Answers, if you said that you prefer Fall Out Boy over One Direction, you will get more thumbs down than likes on your comment. :(

Come on, they are hella famous.

I love BMTH so much. They are making great music and the best lyrics. But a lot of people hate them because the change from deathcore to rock. But I love their new music. They deserve more.

256 Pendulum Pendulum Pendulum is an Australian drum and bass and electronic rock band founded in 2002. Pendulum originally formed in the Australian city of Perth, Western Australia by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding.
257 Bad Religion Bad Religion Bad Religion is an American punk rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1979. The band makes extensive use of soaring three-part vocal harmonies, guitar solos and lyrics that often contain religious and political commentary.

Underrated and ahead of their time. Maybe in a million years time when humans have telekinetic powers and big brains will they truly be appreciated.
The only reason why Lennon's Imagine is voted the best song ever is because Time And Disregard was sadly locked away in The Godfathers of punk's vault. This song was written by Greg Graffin when he was only 17! Most 17 year olds can't even drive or have intercourse properly! Graffin is a genius and made most other songwriters look artistically puny, including Lennon.
Armor-piercing lyrics, dynamic riffs and versatility in genres. Not for everyone's tastes, especially those who only like music you can dance, make out or sing along Cheesily to (which is sadly, most people) but if any band epitomises the artistic superiority of esoteric music over commercial, Bad Religion can not be overlooked.

258 Bush Bush Bush are a British rock band formed in London, England in 1992. The band found their immediate success with the release of their debut album Sixteen Stone in 1994, which is certified 6× multi-platinum by the RIAA.

Bush being so low on this list proves how underrate they are.

Eddie Van Halen define a great new heavy way to play the guitar. There is not much reconigtion for this band like they deserved

260 Emerson, Lake & Palmer Emerson, Lake & Palmer Emerson, Lake & Palmer were an English progressive rock supergroup formed in London in 1970. The band consisted of keyboardist Keith Emerson, singer, bassist, and producer Greg Lake, and drummer and percussionist Carl Palmer. V 1 Comment
