Most Underrated Rock Bandscopkiller

The Animals are my favorite band, next to Pink Floyd. They have an amazing creative sound, and unfortunately only one chart topper. Eric Burdon's voice is amazing, and their spirit and beats always can get a crowd moving. They need more attention. The Animals are amazing. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
Truly an underrated band. - naFrovivuS
Better Than Metallica,No One Cares Again.And Kreator,Destruction,Sadus The Real Big Four Thrash Bands.
More of a "power pop" band, but nonetheless very talented, very underrated, and very influential. My dad introduced me to their music about eight years ago. He, my mom, and some of their friends have had some great memories with this band and now they have passed on to me. I'm only 17 years old and I can tell you that this is a real quality band right here
Check them out - they're from the 70's. Never got famous because of poor management and decisions made. Big influence on groups like REM and Placebo
When I was living in Chicago, I polished up on the history of popular music. Guitarist Chris Bell is an honorable mention for the 27 club.
I love their beautiful songs like "thirteen" and "September gurls" - ChatonNoirV 3 Comments
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!
QUEEN = ALL 4 GENIUSES!
FREDDIE MERCURY = GENIUS EXTRAORDINAIRE!
Ask everyone you know if they've heard of Queen, then ask them if they've heard of the ReplacementsV 18 Comments
Breaking Benjamin are not underrated. -_-
Oh come on! No one gives these guys credit! Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton both began their careers in this band! - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
I always ask people what are your favorite rock bands and I've never heard anyone say Supertramp, which is crazy because The Logical Song is one of the best songs of all time. Definitely in my top 10. - NvGNick
Normally the only song I ever hear by them on the radio is "Give a Little Bit". Yeah, it's a great song, but they have so many other classics as well. They aren't normally recognized as having as much depth as they do. - Knucklewood
No-one I know has heard of Supertramp and I can't understand why. I can't stop listening to them, love the use of saxophone, very rare in a lot of music. They are just overall awesome.
Music with the most layers. Never heard that good music before.V 4 Comments
This band is the most underrated band in history. Unique and innovative and absolutely outstanding. as Billy Sheehan Said, they should have been as big as or bigger than U2. Listen to this band and you will agree.
Hands down the most underrated band in the history of music.
One of the best bands to survive the grunge era.
Their impact on music hasn't been highlighted enough - ellster2005
If I had to pick a favorite band of all time this would be at the top of my list. Not sure if number 1 but top 5 for sure - JonermanV 1 Comment
Excellent band. I don't understand why nobody knows them!...
Best band from the Seattle Scene-singer, guitarist (s), drums and bass are all amazing. And the complexity of their music is great-it's prog without being nerdy-alt tunings and time signatures. These guys make me feel high without even being under the influence.
Dude, these guys started the grunge scene and the only thing I hear when I mention them is " oh, don't they sing Black Hole Sun? "
nobody paid attention to them because they were under the shadow of pearl jam and nirvana - thefrozenlemon
Best of the grunge bands but the least popularV 1 Comment
free bird, sweet home alabama, simple man, and much more but so little credit - thefrozenlemon
One of their songs has become an anthem. Free bird is a genius song, and they have others that are excellent. They are so underrated and very talented.
They are known for "Free Bird", and "Sweet Home Alabama" but that's it. - hype
Tuesday's Gone is one of my favorite songs of all time. Sadly, Ronnie isn't here anymore to sing it :'c. Hope I was born on the 50s to see itV 3 Comments
They're not underrated. They are the single greatest band of all time with an insane catalogue full of sick riffs and great overall songs, but they get all the recognition they deserve. They're no 2 on the metal bands list, and need I remind that metal is the most popular genre on the site? - Songsta41
they are so underrated, they should have one or two of metallica or slipknot's grammys. I love metallica but maiden is just..better. a7x is also underrated too. - sammoth
In what way is Maiden underrated?
They are recognized for being great, but they aren't recognized for just how great they are. Therefore for not being properly recognized that makes them underrated - Killad2
Only underrated albums are x factor and virtual XI.V 10 Comments
I heard about them in a book. - Pony
One of the best bands out there! People should really listen to them more.V 2 Comments
This band has some of the most jovial and haunting melodies. As stated before all the members are great at what they do and their music can really sends a message. All their albums are great but I really enjoyed, Morning View and A Crow Left of the Murder. They have many different sounds and styles, and their music can be very atmospheric. A lot of people will say their newer stuff is poppy, but after listening to If Not Now, When? Finally I fell in love. Still making music that's makes you think and feel. Probably my favorite band. Want to see them live soon watched their concerts many times via YouTube. AMAZING.
Dude this band is so underratted; they are never on the top 100 anything. All the members rock at what they do, are one of the only bands that can pull off having a dj, and have a vast array of styles. They put on a hell of a performance and every song is a new "favorite song".
Incubus is one of a kind. Matching rock with funk metal and alternative metal they created a unique music style that defined them in the early 00s.. They deserve more credit since they made awesome songs.
Incubus Is Horrific,I Thought It Only MeV 2 Comments
In my opinion, Jim Adkins is one of the best vocalists of all time. On top of that, he is a very accomplished guitar player as well, playing lead. The band as a whole never seemed to really gain traction. It's just a shame that more people haven't been able to experience their music because of this.
Probably the only band that hasn't been ruined by MTV. That might the reason they're unheard of.
