Most Underrated Rock Bandscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 2
I'm not sure why queen and iron maiden are even on this list. But Breaking Benjamin is my favorite band and they're very underrated. I'm not saying they should be number one but they should be higher than this.
Among the best 21 century's bands I wish I could see seether and three days grace on this list also.. To bad those bands are really underrated
The opposite is true, Benjamin, Grace, and Seether are overrated. Still good bands, bit not nearly as good as people claim - Alpha101
EVERY DAMN SONG IS FANTASTIC. Seriously, I haven't heard a song from them that I didn't love. Just listen to Diary of Jane, Breath, Polyamorous, So Cold, Dear Agony, or any song from the entirety of their discography
Not underrated at all. - naFrovivuSV 12 Comments
Breaking Benjamin are not underrated. -_-
I cannot believe that most people don't know this band! All the media ever focuses on these days are people with no talent, but with pretty faces (If you call Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj pretty, that is). A great band who writes more than meaningful lyrics... They're simply amazing!
red is a very underrated band
people with a tiny amount of talent like justin bieber get all the attention
but theres bands out there like red who can actualy write meaningful songs and actualy can make music!
One of the best bands. Not only in Christian rock, but overall. But dang these guys are so underrated. They REALLY deserve more recognition and appreciation. They have really deep and meaningful lyrics, awesome music and an amazing vocalist who can scream powerfully and sing so beautifully at the same time. I love RED!
Very underrated band. Please give them a listen if you can. Their album "Of Beauty and Rage" is a powerful and moving piece of art. It is beautiful yet a force to be reckoned with. I wish I had gotten into them earlier.V 10 Comments
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
Most underrated band of all timeV 4 Comments
I love ELO! They have awesome lyrics, catchy melodies, and great talent! I have to say, 'Livin Thing' probably my favorite along with 'Telephone Line' and 'Evil Woman'. It is so sad that not a lot of people listen to them these days. And one last thing, if you like The Beatles, you will probably like ELO because they are similar, but still very different in their own good way!
ELO basically invented their own style of rock n roll and nobody recognizes it. They are legends and always will be. It is sad that people listen to rap when bands like ELO basically use the same instruments and are lot better.
Probably (in my opinion) the most underrated acts of the 1970s and of all time. Do I like other bands more than them, Of course. But ELO is definitely high up there. Their melodies, mixture of pop rock and classical, and their versatility, makes them one of the most massive and sophisticated acts in all of classic rock. They've had tons of hits, but barely any of them get radio play. A definite reccomendation (also "Big Wheels" may be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard)
Puting it bluntly: If you don�'t put ELO amongst the top 10 bands of all time it is because you have not listened to them or because you just don�'t know about music (and just go for the more commercial bands - but not as good as ELO)V 15 Comments
Led Zeppelin already had too much attention, and the animals are underrated. - Fullwalking2
Truly an underrated band. - naFrovivuS
Excellent band. I don't understand why nobody knows them!...
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 - Jonerman
RATM Sucks what Happen To Deftones And Smashing Pumpkins,Helmet,Prong,Ministry? Jeez.
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 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.
Should have been the top 10 alternative band in the 2000'sV 4 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
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
Oh, come on. Maiden is not underrated. I mean just about every person who listens to metal agrees that they are one of the greatest metal bands of all time. However, they do have some underrated songs. - kk2001V 11 Comments
A living legend with a deep catalog!
Aw I love this guy but not wildly underrated
Amazing to see live - Beautifulsound
Awesome songs and albums,but nobody seems to know them.Poison and Wayne�'s World aren�'t the best of his work,but sadly the most well known.V 2 Comments
toxicity, question, chop suey, byob, sugar, aerials, spiders, hypnotize, holy mountains, radio/video, lonely day, kill rock n roll, this is the greatest rock band of all time and yet very few people appreiciate them - CaptainComedy17
How the hell did the get on the overrated list!? no one knows them - SoldierSide1224
People tend to say that they are overrated...but at least where I live nobody knows them?! - filuxx_
More likely overrated. - zxm
They are terrible rock band on history other then morn and slipknot
Awesome music.. Creativity.. Lyrics... This band should b in the top 10...
There music makes you think out side the box. Shows how. ignorant people are in the present and past.
Anthrax is awesome. Megadeth is very over rated and if they sold near as much as Metallica then they would be the most over rated band of all time. Megadeth fans are idiots that are easily amused by a average band. Anthrax had then beat - Sabbath
Anthrax is awesome. Megadeth is over rated
Shame that metal heads mostly look at Slayer and Metallica and forget about this more talented group from the Thrash Era
Anthrax- Real Thrash
Metallica/Megadeth- Real Trash - sweetbeef
Such an amazing prog rock band. Creates a spiritual atmosphere through their music. - RalphSaad
Rajaz and stationary traveler, amazing songs equal to hotel california high hopes comfortably numb wish you were here
Sonic Youth isn't for everyone, but they are without doubt extremely underrated - papervinnie
Underrated on an underrated list, how ironic - Mowberg
So underrated that I only found out about them by scrolling through the bottom half punk top ten lists when I'm board.
So underrated they're not even on the list
A very special band and one that seems to be overlooked. They were at the forefront of the British Invasion with The Beatles, The Stones and The Who, yet they seem so unique. The singer/songwriter (Ray Davies) is a great humored genius with an addicting voice. The drummer is always solid and well timed. The bass is (maybe a bit shy) soft when you want and strong when needed. Finally, the guitarist is very talented and is obvious in their more complex compositions. Just start with their first album, if you aren't into 60s Pop Rock n Roll then skip to Village Green Preservation Society (easily one of the best albums ever). You'll be hooked.
I feel like The Kinks were made from this list because they NEVER EVEN GOT NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY, have been around from the early 60's to the early 90's (3 decades), have been banned from playing in the United States, and have an amazing sound that is unique! I have to say that The Kinks are one of my favorite bands of all time because their sound is so perfect (In my opinion)! - TheThomasThomas
They are simply amazing - You Really Got Me, All Day and All of the Night, Tired of Waiting For You, 'Til the End of the Day, Lola, Everybody's Gonna Be Happy, and BEST OF ALL... 'Waterloo Sunset'! There are so many more brilliant hits that aren't on this list. Please go check out the Kinks because it will be worth the time - I promise!
This has to be the most underrated band.V 7 Comments
