Most Underrated Rock Bandscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 4
One of the early pioneers of the new wave scene, even before it became mainstream in the 80's. A great live act in their times, they have been forgotten and constantly overlooked by fans, peers and critics alike though their songs have stood the test of times.
The Cars are no doubt one of the most underrated bands of all time! Although they weren't together for that many years, they created some of the best music the world will ever hear. A shame that so many hits of theirs will go unrecognized by many!
No one ever talks about the talents of the Cars! Although they were only around for a few years, they have so many hits, and so many great songs that some people have never even heard of!
When I think of underrated bands, The Cars is the first one to come to mind. - KnucklewoodV 5 Comments
They really should get more recognition. - LarkwingFlightV 2 Comments
They are pretty underrated. - Pony
I felt like they got an uncredited role in the progression of rock/metal in the 70's. Basically if there was no Rush then everyone would know Budgie - Johnnyt800
Very underrated and an unknown...Check out "Breadfan" Metallica does a cover of this but can't compete with Budgie. One of my top loves
Exceptional Band. One of the founders of NWOBHM. Some bands like Iron Maiden, Van Halen, Metallica, Judas Priest covered their songs.
You have to be kidding me,budgie at 56.These guys are extremely understated they have to be in top 20,I mean these guys rock...they were awesome! Yet no one knows them.Metallica did a cover of their song but damn the originals kicks Metallica in the crotch! (sorry Metallica! )
These guys are like the rush of hard rock!
Listen to breadfan,Turned to stone and be amazed! - Toucan
In my opinion, the best rock band in the last 10 years, and sadly, one of the most underrated. They have so much variety and a lot of their songs are just beautiful and badass. Myles Kennedy's great voice and Mark Tremonti's awesome guitar solos worth it.
One of the most underrated rock bands with extremely good musicV 1 Comment
Looking at the ratings some bands shouldn't be in the list because everyone rates them. Some bands are down here and underrated as they are barely heard of and others are just underrated. Heart can really rock and put on a good show. People have heard of them and they get overlooked because of line up changes and being forced by the record label to accept hitmaker songs in their albums in the mid 80s. But look at what they play, it does rock and when you look at recent stuff they have done themselves without hitmakers they still rock as much as they did in the 70s. Underrated writing and performing tallent.
Ween is so underrated that it isn't even on the list!
This band is so underrated that it is raked 101 in a underrated rock band list... Come on they were a big influence for Clapton, Pink Floyd and even The Beatles. Great songwriting, three excellent singers, one of the most laid back rhythm section. They toured with Dylan and their first two albums are masterpieces constantly praised by other artists.
Some of the smartest music that inspired greats like Eric Clapton and others. Amazing and underrated roots rock
Ron and Rod and the boys...Stay With Me Debris Ooh LA La...no Black Crowe without them.
Primus is so underrated! Not only are they great at playing instruments, but they are also great at making music! One of the most original bands to ever release music. And not to mention, their live shows are AMAZING!
Primus is WAY underrated. They have the best bassist to play the instrument, a crazy guitarist, and a plethora of amazing drummers. One of the best bands ever.
Probably the best band ever going strong since the mid 80's... No band sounds like them truly original.
They created new genre and are the only representative in this genreV 1 Comment
Should be in the top 5 at least! they helped start grunge and were extremely influential too nirvana
Come on guys, they are iconic and their music is cool! How are they so low? The practically originated horror punk.
I know that rhapsody of fire is metal, not rock, but there are so many bands hear that are not rock that this list is more rock and metal. Rhapsody of fire is amazing, but nobody listens to them. Their songs are so complex and the lyrics are actually good. They are a million times better than Metallica's more recent albums.
Definitely one of the best bands producing music write now. Their sound is truly amazing for three members. Pete's voice tops 95% of all other metal and Hard Rock bands.
You Rock chevelle, I have everyone of your songs. My favorites are Saturdays, The Clincher, don't Fake this, and Glimpse of a Con.
Chevelle is a fantastic band that every hard rock and alternative metal fan should listen.
Letter from a theif, Jars, The Fad, etc. Best rock band of our generation in my honest opinion
A letter, Saferwaters, And Jars are some of the greatest songs I've ever heard so far. Dispite their newest album, 'La Gargola' not being as great as their previous ones in my opinion, CheVelle is band that will never get old.
Their lead singer Mark Arm actually was the one to come up with the word "grunge". They literally invented the genre! - Kfox101
The Godfathers of Grunge, even before Nirvana. - Pony
