Most Underrated Rock Bandscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 16
They're overrated for the stuff they're famous for but anyone that ignores smells like teen spirit, lithium and their other commercial songs will see that their songs are great, I think they deserve the regignition but for their better songs, in Utero is a masterpiece by the way
They're actually pretty overrated.
Overrated. Sure I saw Semlls like teen spirit on Mtv like any other kid back in the 90's and thought WOW but I think overall that their sound was boring and I got so tired of hearing the Kurt Cobain was "the hero of my generation", - ChatonNoir
They should be on the most overrated bands list
This one is actually kind of good. - RockFashionista
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.
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!V 2 Comments
Far and away #1 on this list - I have them as the SECOND greatest R(R Band of all time (to The Rolling Stones)!...those of and the few that know better have been getting off on this ICONICband (especially live) forever man...
Poeple think this band is a one hit wonder with Eye of the Tiger, but its not. This band is brilliant, and so underrated.
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.V 1 Comment
This band had two great artists in it... Neil Young and Steven Stills. I love a lot of their songs. For What It's Worth is probably my all-time favorite song.
Grew up with their music. Very pretty songs and beautiful harmonies - ChatonNoir
Only together for about 18 months, but the members went on to greatness, including:
Stephen Stills AND Neil Young of CSNY, solo fame, etc, etc.
Richie Furay, founder of Poco.
Jim Messina of Loggins & Messina.
Buffalo Springfield is very deservedly in the RRHOF, but many people do not remember them.
Really guys. Most of these bands are already recognized and lauded.
Great band. always overshadowed by the jackass/bam connection
The song Empire, Club Foot or Fire will tune you in, this band is a legend amongst indie rock.
Although well known in the U.K., more people should recognize this band in America. One of the best shows I've ever seen was at La Zona Rosa (RIP) in Austin, Tx in 2006. Can't believe it's been over a decade.
Ween is so underrated that it isn't even on the list!
So damn underrated. Deserve to do more than festivals.
Oh no, why is this band so low (on this list.). In case you didn't get it that's a reference to medicine, only the lyrics were changed a bit. - scourgeisdabest
Definitely the most underrated band. - BrideiMacBella
One of the greatest bands ever, very underrated
