152 The Psychedelic Furs
153 Skid Row Skid Row Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in Toms River, New Jersey. They were very successful in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their first two albums certified multi-platinum.

Sebastian Bach has one of the best voices in history. Their songs were really touching, not only the ballads, but the rebellious ones also.

Truly they were one of the worst rock bands of all time not as bad as limpbitz though

154 The Offspring The Offspring The Offspring is an American punk rock band from Huntington Beach, California, formed in 1984. Formed under the name Manic Subsidal, the band consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Dexter Holland, bassist Greg K., lead guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman and drummer Pete Parada.

Definitely one of the best punk bands

The best punk rock band in my opinion.I WAS LISTENING TO GREEN DAY for 2 years and at the same time I was listening to The Offspring...Now there have been 5 years since I first heard of them and I still enjoy their music.And...Dexter Holland is a man that everyone should admire for his achievements.

155 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

If you've all jumped on board with the "Nickelback sucks" band wagon, then it's a real shame. Yes, they only had 2 hits. 2 mainstream successful hits does NOT equal only 2 good songs. No, Nickelback have many good songs. They have their own distinctive sound. They are underrated in so many ways, people I know say they hate Nickelback and when asked why, a long pause is then followed by "well I didn't like Rockstar," I mean come on, grow up. So yes, Nickelback is extremely underrated, they deserve so much more than this!

Everyone hates them. I love them. They sound the same but so what song fix what's not broken.

Corruptly underrated

"They have their own distinctive sound"
Oh yes, very distinctive, THE SAME EXACT DISTINCTIVE SOUND IN EVERY SINGLE SONG THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO PULL YOUR EARDRUMS OUT - KingofSnails42

156 Meat Loaf Meat Loaf Michael Lee Aday is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor usually known by his stage name Meat Loaf.

What a boss but I don't think he's underrated. bat out of hell has sold more than 40 million copies

157 D'erlanger

most of the bands in the top tens is internationally known but this one, even if they are legendary, only japanese people recognized the band. other people into j-rock recognizes x-japan, buck tick, l'arc en ciel, dir en grey, gazette, asian kung fu generation and they forgot this one - ronluna

only a few outside japan like me who are a fan of d'erlanger, x-japan gets all credit in terms who started visual kei movement but this one is also one of the bands who started it. ask many visual kei bands in japan and they will point d'erlanger as their idol. - ronluna

very underrated under appreciated rock band of japan because of those fangirls who are busy collecting x-japan, dir en grey, girugamesh, etc without noticing d'erlanger's major contribution to japanese rock history - ronluna

I'm the only one voting for them and writing them in the website and other japanese rock fans are busy with other popular japanese bands like dir en grey, larc en ciel (one of my favorite besides this) and so common x-japan - ronluna

158 Children of Bodom Children of Bodom Children Of Bodom is a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the group currently consists of Alexi Laiho, Janne Wirman, Henkka Seppälä, Jaska Raatikainen and Daniel Freyberg.
159 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Radiohead encompasses everything a band should be. They are experimental, unique and have an huge range of amazing songs that they don't get much credit for - in Rainbows, for example. This album is undoubtedly one of their best, and I could listen to it all day.

However even though this is the case, I don't think they're underrated as such. OK Computer was a MASSIVE hit album and they had quite a good career and are still going.
I'd say they're one of the best and most influential rock bands in the world but not the most underrated. I think in the 130 - 150 spot is good for them - SMU2WG

160 Dinosaur Jr. Dinosaur Jr. Dinosaur Jr. is an American rock band formed in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1984, originally simply called Dinosaur until legal issues forced a change in name.

So underrated they're not even high on the underrated list. I firmly believe Dino is up there among the greatest rock bands of all time. They invented their own unique sound and no one has done it quite as well as them since.

Half these bands are over rated. Radio head, and Megadeth for sure. Nirvana is over rated too
