They are FAR too underated. Easily one of the best bands of the early 2000s. I mean pretty much every song on thier first album is awesome. Also avenged sevenfold need wy more credit. Synyster Gates Has some of the best riffs of the last few years - yyy1yyy1

Their music brings to mind the glorious Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and stuff.. Reason enuff to be on top of the useless mainstream pop rock nutters :/ - Snafu

362 Brownsville Station
363 Black Oak Arkansas
364 Zebrahead

These guys make some pretty kick ass music. These guys deserve more notice.

This band rocks. I can't believe people don't know about this band.

One of the best rap rock bands! They are great!

365 Dead End
366 Aerosmith Aerosmith Aerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as "the Bad Boys from Boston" and "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band".

Aerosmith rocks! They deserve so much more credit than they're given. So many great songs and not enough credit. Anyone who thinks otherwise has poor taste in music, because they guys are downright awesome and I LOVE them. One of my top bands. Aerosmith forever!

Not truly appreciated for how great they really are! Whether they are fusing Blues and Rock together in one sweet bowl of musical awesomeness, or rocking out to guilty pleasures like Dude Looks Like a Lady, Aerosmith should be further up this list

373 Queen Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

Queen are NOT underrated. How can a band be underrated who have sold over 100 million records? Don't you dare say "people like them for the wrong reasons, they are underrated because people like them the wrong way" or any of that, Queen by fact are popular. UFO, Blue Oyster Cult, and to a lesser extent Deep Purple and Rainbow are way more underrated compared to Queen. Your favourite band does not mean underrated! Everyone knows at least one Queen song.

Queen is the best not because of Brian May's incomparable guitar work, Freddie Mercury's astounding 8-octave range, John Deacon's underrated bass work, or even their ability to put on the greatest live show in the history of time. No, it was their ability to nail many genres without sounding like hack imitators (Almost every male pop star after Michael Jackson comes to mind). They could tackle opera, hard rock, synth-pop, cheesy love songs, epic movie soundtrack songs, old- fashioned Elvis-style rock. Hell, they practically invented thrash metal with stone cold crazy. And before all you metal-heads get mad, Metallica, probably the greatest thrash metal if you consider their career over after 1992, covered this song. No other band can or will ever do this because no other singer can or will ever have the vocal genre range of Freddie Mercury. I'm not talking about the 8 octaves I mentioned earlier, though that is impressive, I'm talking about his ability to crunch out vocals on WWRY, ...more

QUEEN is very underrated b/c they're so under-exposed and so very under-appreciated. Other than their very popular hits, most people really don't know Queen's incredible depth, huge range, and many diff genres (42! ). Their brilliance is so extraordinary, their skill unmatched, their genius unimaginable! Their hidden gems are like a treasure trove of sheer ecstasy! From the frenetic Stone Cold Crazy and Dead On Time to the lovely Love Of My Life and Save Me to the phenomenal Fairy Feller's Master Stroke and The March Of The Black Queen... There's something for everyone.
Unlike other bands whose every scribble was overplayed and overexposed ad nauseum, Queen's magnificent talent and depth were only explored by the avid Queen fan, since their true treasures never received proper airplay. Such a shame! What a waste!

Ask everyone you know if they've heard of Queen, then ask them if they've heard of the Replacements

Oh my god they are so underrated! The vocals are great, the lyrics are cool and the riffs give ear orgasms. I absolutely recommend this band to any fan of hard stuff.

Very underrated! Their sound is like Metallica pantera and lamb of god kind of mixed together. They're not just some emo band people.

They've made some bad songs. But only about 4 or 5. Rest all are good. But people are like "Yeah, I've heard this a7x song (for eg. Tonight the world dies), it was horrible, they suck! " dafuq, people?
