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?

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.

104 Fit for Rivals

Ola soy clau soy de Bolivia odio los cholos diego t amo okya xDDD O.o

106 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

107 Foreigner Foreigner Foreigner is a British-American hard rock band, originally formed in New York City in 1976 by veteran English musician Mick Jones and fellow Briton and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald along with American vocalist Lou Gramm.
108 Queens of the Stone Age Queens of the Stone Age Queens of the Stone Age is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, United States, formed in 1996. The band's line-up includes founder Josh Homme, alongside longtime members Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman, Dean Fertita, and recent addition Jon Theodore.

One of the greatest rock bands of the 21st century, made of incredibly talented musicians. They had a few songs on the radio, but they deserve more. It saddens me to think that hundreds and thousands of people will never get to hear them because of crappy, plastic, commercial rock being shoved down their throats and pushing these guys out of the way. They swap genres constantly and make some of the greatest rock songs I have ever heard.

Queens of the stone age, by far the best the music industry has to offer currently besides the Foo Fighters and Eagles of Death Metal.

I'm just wondering how they're underrated on a list of underrated bands. these guys should at least be within the top 20.

So underrated they're underrated on a list for underrated bands.

How? HOW? WHY IS THIS BELOW 100?

Are they just a band that's too cool to be underrated and too cool to be loved?

109 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.

110 James Gang
111 The Fray The Fray The Fray is an American rock band from Denver, Colorado. Formed in 2002 by schoolmates Isaac Slade and Joe King, they achieved success with the release of their debut album, How to Save a Life in 2005, which was certified double platinum by the RIAA and platinum in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and ...read more.

The Fray is definitely better than most of the piano-driven British bands today, according to critics. They are masters at soft songs. Some of their best songs are "Look after you", "How to save a life", "Over my head", and so on...

112 Coroner Coroner Coroner is a Swiss thrash metal band from Z├╝rich, formed in the early 80s. They have been called "the Rush of thrash metal" for their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash. They garnered relatively little attention outside Europe .
113 Gentle Giant Gentle Giant Gentle Giant were a British progressive rock band active between 1970 and 1980. The band was known for the complexity and sophistication of its music and for the varied musical skills of its members.

Underrated even on the underrated list ;-;... It's a crime

114 Chickenfoot

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..

115 The Power Station

117 Faith No More Faith No More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Wow 127th on this list they should be way way higher like in the top 25. They are the Rodney Dangerfield of music they just don't get any damn respect

Definitely the most underrated rock/metal band of the late 1980s-early 1990s

What a band! And almost no one knows it

118 Celesty
119 Fever Tree
120 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)
