The Contenders: Page 3
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.
Why the heck is Queen, Rush, STP, and Boston up there? All of their albums pale in comparison with Dirt, and yet are more popular. AIC is synonymous with underrated band. Nirvana's shadow cast over them, and by the time the majority of the Seattle Scene dissolved, Layne slipped up (RIP Layne, greatest voice). So, how is the Riff God's band not up in the top ten? The one of the most dynamic voices in Rock history not up there? Sean Kinney's drumming is superb, as well as Mike Inez & the late great Mike Starr's bass guitar's skill. Not to mention amazing harmonies between Jerry and DuVall/Staley. WAY underrated. Heck, they're underrated on an underrated list, who's more underrated than that? - Laughitupfuzzball
Most underrated band in my opinion. The music is band created in the 90's is still the best in 2012. I only wish Layne would have stayed with us longer, the music they made with him is the best. I enjoy what they are doing now with a different singer, but my music heart belongs with Layne. RIP
Alice in Chains took me by surprise when I first heard their music.. ALways thought of them as a heavy metal band but honestly they are nothing but perfect melodies and groovy solos.. some of the purest rock out there in my opinion. If you wanna consider them grunge then consider them the best
Pearl Jam and Nirvana get a lot of the pub. but AIC may be the best of the Seattle Sound. They are often dark but oh so cool. So many great songs.V 7 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
It's not only about their music, but it's the lyrics and the meaning. Rise against are and will always be my favorite band.
I will never forget this band. Love it
Some of the best lyrics I've ever heard and a unique soundV 1 Comment
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
More likely overrated. - zxm
One of the best bands of all times, They have been inspired and loved by so many musicians.
"Where is My Mind" is a song that will never cease to amaze
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
Shame that metal heads mostly look at Slayer and Metallica and forget about this more talented group from the Thrash Era
Anthrax is awesome. Megadeth is over rated
I like it, it's originalV 2 Comments
Such an amazing prog rock band. Creates a spiritual atmosphere through their music. - RalphSaad
Sonic Youth isn't for everyone, but they are without doubt extremely underrated - papervinnie
Underrated on an underrated list, how ironic - Mowberg
So underrated they're not even on the list
Never get discussed. Great guitarists and one of the top 20 voices in rock of all time in Joe Elliot.
The Best. The sound undeniably unique.
It is a shame that the world refuses to hear Styx for what they are. They would be knighted if they were British. They are the most original band ever. They would be a tough act for anyone to follow even today. It wasn't about the sex appeal of rock and roll for them, it was about the music. Better than every British band, hands down.
Everyone seems to hate this band. That's partly because, mostly, only their later, not-so-great songs got popular. Their really phenomenal songs (almost all from the 70s), like "Castle Walls", "Clair de Lune/Ballerina", "A Day" and "Boat on the River" are mostly unknown. - Raa396
They should be at he number one position suite madame blue is one of the greatest songs of all time!
Come Sail Away is a masterpiece. Mr. Roboto is a masterpiece. Lady is a masterpiece. Just about every one of their songs is a masterpiece. Styx deserves way more credit than they get. - NvGNickV 4 Comments
My username is dedicated to these guys! The Stone Temple Pilots totally rock! They are very underrated. Just listen to their song Plush. It's EPIC! - StoneTemplePilots87
They were despised by critics for most of their career until they had already broken up! I think I said enough for you to understand why they are underrated! - TheThomasThomas
I was scrolling past all these and wondered were they were. I really like the Stone Temple Pilots and I think they are very underrated.
Completely agree they underrated! - JuniorxtrmV 2 Comments
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!
It's really weird that this band doesn't get any attention. Unique music, meaningful lyrics, and very AMAZING vocals... So touching and emotional.
Red is a rlly cool band.And Christian too...V 8 Comments
Perhaps THE most under-rated prog rock band - at least in the UK. Much appreciated however in most of Europe, particularly in Germany, where they are revered, have played massive concerts and hold the number 3 spot for best album of all time.
Why am I having to add this immensely successful, though under-rated in their home country (the UK), band to a list that includes so many unheard-of bands? At the height of their success, they played a free concert in front of the Reichstag in West Berlin, with an estimated attendance of 250,000 people (30 August 1980). They were also the first Western rock band to play an open-air concert in pre-Glasnost East Germany, playing in Treptower Park, East Berlin on 14 July 1987 to a 170,000+ audience. In 2011 official German chart company Media Control has named BJH's Gone To Earth the third most successful chart album ever in Germany - the largest music market in Europe! Their chart is based on points given for the number of weeks spent on the official chart and the positions reached. Number one is Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here (the new remastered edition of which recently re-entered the German album chart at No. 4), and second was German schlager singer Andrea Berg's Best Of. "
Thank goodness that the rest of Europe latched on to this insanely under-rated Lancashire prog band and took them to their hearts, otherwise they might not have created all those wonderful albums for their many devoted fans to play over and over again. I never tire of listening to their exquisite music.
This band is so underrated. I don't understand what happened, they opened important shows, they had grate music and yet they are not very known, unless you really like glam. Rock
A great band that is not to well known, deserves much more recognition. Songs like Coming Home, Don't Know What You Got, Gypsey Road, etc. Are great!
If My Chemical Romance is famous, I don't understand why this isn't.
Very underrated band. Love the earlier stuff. Saw them is Australia 2011 fantastic.
One of my favorite top 5 bands
Rivals any band in terms of pure musical talent. David Byron is the most underrated singer ever as well.
Most underrated band ever. Period. Reminiscent of, and nearly on a par with, Led Zeppelin, they get virtually no recognition. Salisbury, with its orchestra backup, is a masterpiece.
Every mid school teen that has grown in the 00s must have listened at least once to their best single song ''Headstrong''.
This band bring me back so much nice memories from the High school.They are one of the best.
