121 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.

Excellent Band of the 80's. Most underrated band of the 80's. R.I.P. Adrian Borland.

This chick measures up very well with the big boys in metal.

Very catchy and very good. Love them!

126 The Doors The Doors The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

Eh? They are one of the best but I'm not ready to say they are underrated.

Not very underrated. Even my grandmother knows light my fire. - ChatonNoir

Slightly Underrated.

127 Frank Zappa Frank Zappa Frank Vincent Zappa was an American musician, songwriter, composer, record producer, actor and filmmaker.

Forget about "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow". Frank was one of the great musicians of the 20th century. He could have been a classical musician, but he chose rock as his genre so that people would listen to his music. He was also a great satiricist, poking fun at everyone and everything, while defending free speech against the Nancy Reagan's attempt to censure rock and roll lyrics. He demolished her.

128 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...

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.

They are amazing!

133 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

Underrated? Please show me an emo teen who doesn't worship them!

Everyone thinks there depressive emo and suicidal but there understanding supportive punk and one of the most underrated bands ever

My Chemica Romance is really underrated. Of course not between ''emo teens'' but both in chart success and in our rock culture. They're really amazing and I can say without a doubt that they write the exceptionally deep lyrics. When people get over all the ''they're ungrateful, suicidial emos'', they could actually enjoy their amazing music. They'de my favourite rock band forever.

135 Dry Cell Dry Cell Dry Cell was an American alternative metal band formed in 1998 in California known in earlier stages of the band as Impúr.
136 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)

137 Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel are a pop rock band from Magdeburg, Germany, consisting of Bill Kaulitz (singer), Tom Kaulitz (guitar), Gustav Schäfer (drums) and Georg Listing (keyboards, bass). In 2005, they started off as a hugely successful and trendsetting teen pop band in their home country with their debut album ...read more.
138 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

Actually not too bad this list! (normally full of nu-metal rubbish). My Pick goes to Porcupine Tree! This band is one of the most consistently great band ever to have existed. Its rare to discover a band both experimental and accessible. For fans of rock with atmosphere, flawless musicianship, audiophile sound quality and a live show to put most bands to shame.

Should be popular among Pink Floyd and Radiohead fans

I'm looking for this what a horrible list this must be 1

139 Nazareth
140 Pantera Pantera Pantera was a Heavy Metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Dimebag Darrell and drummer Vinnie Paul. The group got into mainstream after changing from Glam Metal to Groove Metal. The band's most successful album is "Vulgar Display of Power". As the pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, They ...read more.

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
