102 Journey Journey Journey is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973, composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch.

every single person in the world knows don't stop believin but journey is pretty unknown - thefrozenlemon

Don't stop believing is only 4 minutes you dumbass and why would you vote for it if you don't like their music?

Why the hell is Journey here? They've had multiple big hits including Don't Stop Believing, Faithfully, Seperate Ways, and Open Arms. - naFrovivuS

Journey stinks don't stop I can't shut up because this is 7 minute song. The only song I like is Open Arms in this band. I don't like this band becuase the songs are boring.

103 Slayer Slayer ...read more.

People seem to be voting for and adding their favourite bands rather than what is actually underrated, something which Slayer certainly isn't!

Probably Slayer then Dreamtheater and Megadeth (even though they have sold about 40 million albums they arent too well known)

Unbelievably underrated. I can't believe A7X is on this list. They aren't too terribly underrated, they just have a lot of stupid people who listen to one song, see talent, and decide to hate on it.

Nothing to say, they are awesome

104 Soundgarden Soundgarden Soundgarden is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1984 by singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell, lead guitarist Kim Thayil, and bassist Hiro Yamamoto.

The best band of the grunge era. Cornell's voice was unstoppable. Thayil's guitar playing style is wholly unique and creative. Matt Cameron is one of the most underrated drummers as well. Every album by them is different from the last. They never stagnated when it came to their sound. They will probably get more recognition with Cornell's passing, but they deserved it before.

Best band from the Seattle Scene-singer, guitarist (s), drums and bass are all amazing. And the complexity of their music is great-it's prog without being nerdy-alt tunings and time signatures. These guys make me feel high without even being under the influence.

Dude, these guys started the grunge scene and the only thing I hear when I mention them is " oh, don't they sing Black Hole Sun? "

Best of the grunge bands but the least popular

107 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.

One album wonder (in fact they made 2 albums and 1 EP, however, only one is well known) but very influential for indie/alternative music world.

115 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.
