Brilliant band! They deserve more respect in the music industry, everyone has hear of them... yet many cannot name at least 3 of their songs!

Absolutely brilliant band. They are pretty well known, but they do not receive nearly enough credit for their wide range of styles and amazing musical proficiency and complexity.

On my list of favorite bands/artists, this is definitely at number one.
Muse is unique, versatile and expressive in style, composition, technicality and lyricism. While they are popular in England, they should have more attention from other countries as well.

One of the best metal bands ever, they are created Southern metal, and Groove metal. This band kicks ass! They will be live forever!

How are these guys underrated, they saved heavy metal during the time grunge was taking over the 90's

105 Wings

Wings was an amazing band. The entire album Band on the Run is a masterpiece. Paul and wings have a lot of great songs: Silly Love Songs, Juniors Farm, Sally G,Letting Go...

I think it is not given enough value because it is compared with the Beatles, and they are two totally different bands: /

They made the best rock/pop music of 70s and had many hit albums and singles and were a HUGE influence on pop music but unfortunately they are hardly ever played on radio and are only rarely remembered because of Paul McCartney (co-founder of the legendary Beatles)

106 Zi:Kill

The King of all Visual Kei band!

107 Type O Negative Type O Negative Type O Negative was an American gothic/doom metal band formed in Brooklyn, New York City in 1989. Their lyrical emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death resulted in the nickname "The Drab Four".

This band is definitely worth a listen. There is a certain mystical quality to their music; almost enchanting. Every album after and including Bloody Kisses is a masterpiece. A few songs I recommend: Black No. 1, Love You To Death, I Don't Wanna Be Me, Christian Woman, Green Man, Nettie, Creepy Green Light.

If you like the band after listening to those songs, try their albums. Bloody Kisses, October Rust, World Coming Down, and Life Is Killing Me are the greatest.

Emotional, humorous, and heavy. You won't be sorry.

Most original, musically talented, and underrated band of the past 20 years.

108 Neutral Milk Hotel

"In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" is one of the greatest albums of all time and certainly the most underrated. Take a listen people and just enjoy pure musical genius.

109 Cake

One of the most talented and entertaining bands out there! very highly underrated...every one of their albums are solid and varied musically throughout...

110 Magma
111 James Gang
112 Guns N' Roses

They are often ignored in favour of other great bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin when the question comes up about who are the greatest rock band of all times. I think they are truly the best band ever and only The Who give them a close race.

I consider it one of the top bands ever. Such a shame they broke up cause otherwise, I think they could had even been consider the best. Their music was genius, each one of their songs is so well calculated to make the perfect harmony of sounds.

This is underrated rock bands, not the best rock bands! Guns N Roses are not underrated

What a joke. They are overrated, if anything.

One of best supergroups that has formed in last 10 years
Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony from Van Halen, Chad Smith from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Joe Satriani made up an awesome hard rock band..

118 The Power Station
119 The Sound

One of the best post punk bands. Underrated is an understatement. Best of the 80's nobody has heard. Shame, considering the others 80's crap people still listen to. They need to be heard even decades later!

This band needs it's recognition as one of the best 80's bands and be heard even if it's decades later. Be underrated No more!

One of the really great bands of the 80's most people never heard of, but should. They started before U2 and they should have be listened to just as much. So very overlooked and underrated.
