121 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.

I'm guessing this is not underrated because of Snoop Doggs remix (mostly from nfs underground 2)

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!

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...

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.

130 Turisas Turisas Turisas is a Finnish metal band from Hämeenlinna. They were founded in 1997 by Mathias Nygård and Jussi Wickström, and named after an ancient Finnish God of war.
131 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.
132 Jethro Tull Jethro Tull Jethro Tull were a British rock group, formed in Luton, Bedfordshire, in December 1967. Initially playing blues rock, the band soon developed its sound to incorporate elements of British folk music and hard rock to forge a progressive rock signature.
133 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)

134 Goo Goo Dolls Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.

Honestly The Most underrated Band I think EVER! They are Amazing Musicians and they never get the Respect they deserve! Foreigner would be the other super Underrated Band! Both The GGD's and Foreigner are The 2 most underrated Bands EVER - Curti2594

Everyone should listen "iris" at least once in life...

135 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

136 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.

The King of all Visual Kei band!

138 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?

139 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
