310 Patti Smith Group Patti Smith Group
311 Stiff Little Fingers
312 Modest Mouse Modest Mouse Modest Mouse is an American rock band formed in 1992 in Issaquah, Washington, and currently based in Portland, Oregon.

Very underrated, good songs, not a lot of people knew about them until 2004 when "Float On" came out. But still aren't getting the love they deserve.

313 Egypt Central

Had to search a long time on the list to find these guys. Absolutely love their style (especially their first album) but sadly they only released two. At least we still have Devour the Day.

314 Gob
315 Traffic Traffic

Great band. Underrated songs aplenty: "No Time to Live," "Vagabond Virgin," "Shanghai Noodle Factory," all of Barleycorn, "Many a Mile to Freedom," "Hidden Treasure," "Evening Blue," "Walkin' in the Wind," and many others. Ridiculously under-appreciated--but there day will come again when fashions fade.

John Barleycorn Must die is amazing! One of my favorite bands of all time!

Traffic was similar to Genesis but Steve Winwood's vocals are great!

They are so creative and his voice is so special. I love them since I first saw Pure Morning on MTV when it came out...

317 12 Stones 12 Stones

Rock in general is usually always underrated but 12 stones is probably the most underrated band I know. How are deep purple and dream theater even on this list

Their self titled album was amazing

318 Survivor Survivor Survivor is an American rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by Jim Peterik. The band achieved its greatest success in the 1980s, garnering many charting singles, especially in the United States.

Poeple think this band is a one hit wonder with Eye of the Tiger, but its not. This band is brilliant, and so underrated.

319 Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney.

Extremely influential. lost in the shadow of same-era nirvana but had a far bigger impact on rock in general. defied category and created art. more unique than 99% of the bands on this list.

Just listen to Three Days.
