Most Underrated Rock Bandscopkiller

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
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?
These really need more credit guys! Seeing them tomorrow :) they're great live and there music is original and amazing.
