The Contenders: Page 7
A very special band and one that seems to be overlooked. They were at the forefront of the British Invasion with The Beatles, The Stones and The Who, yet they seem so unique. The singer/songwriter (Ray Davies) is a great humored genius with an addicting voice. The drummer is always solid and well timed. The bass is (maybe a bit shy) soft when you want and strong when needed. Finally, the guitarist is very talented and is obvious in their more complex compositions. Just start with their first album, if you aren't into 60s Pop Rock n Roll then skip to Village Green Preservation Society (easily one of the best albums ever). You'll be hooked.
I feel like The Kinks were made from this list because they NEVER EVEN GOT NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY, have been around from the early 60's to the early 90's (3 decades), have been banned from playing in the United States, and have an amazing sound that is unique! I have to say that The Kinks are one of my favorite bands of all time because their sound is so perfect (In my opinion)! - TheThomasThomas
They are simply amazing - You Really Got Me, All Day and All of the Night, Tired of Waiting For You, 'Til the End of the Day, Lola, Everybody's Gonna Be Happy, and BEST OF ALL... 'Waterloo Sunset'! There are so many more brilliant hits that aren't on this list. Please go check out the Kinks because it will be worth the time - I promise!
How is Queen underrated? Bohemian Rhapsody is definitely the most overrated song of all time. Songs like Lola, All day and All night and You really got me are all amazing songs by the Kinks, worthy of the Beatles,V 6 Comments
A very good southern-Rock Band. Best track "Long way to go" - 1974
Deftones have undergone an enormous evolution over 20 years, yet through their entire career they have kept up a very original and distinctive sound.
One of the greatest bands of all the time, very creative
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)
All of their songs are amazingly good!V 1 Comment
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. - ChatonNoirV 1 Comment
They are FAR too underated. Easily one of the best bands of the early 2000s. I mean pretty much every song on thier first album is awesome. Also avenged sevenfold need wy more credit. Synyster Gates Has some of the best riffs of the last few years - yyy1yyy1
Their music brings to mind the glorious Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and stuff.. Reason enuff to be on top of the useless mainstream pop rock nutters :/ - Snafu
These guys make some pretty kick ass music. These guys deserve more notice.
This band rocks. I can't believe people don't know about this band.
One of the best rap rock bands! They are great!
When I discuss music with my friends and the topic of britpop comes up, I'll hear either oasis or blur are the best, but pulp are honestly in my opinion the best britpop act, there's more to them than just common people
If Ian wouldn't have gone in his inner depression, the band would've kept on going with him, and would have become an international icon. And wouldn't be part of this list. I say so because Joy Division's two actual albums and singles Love Will Tear us Apart, Dead Souls and ATMOSPHERE are all soaring masterpieces.
ps- RIP Ian, you sweet soul. - PinkflASHES
