168 Nothingface
169 The Chameleons
170 The Psychedelic Furs
171 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.

172 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.
173 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

Pearl Jam are very underrated mainly because they refused to be commercial sellouts so not as many people have had a chance to listen to them. It just goes to show how much of a great band they are when Eddie has performed with the likes of Pink Floyd, The Who, The Rolling Stones, REM etc.

Not most underrated but it most be at top 10 at least. They are one of the best bands in the history. Better than nirvana alice in chains Foo Fighters. Best grunge band. - Bilgehankonya

Every day I'm reminded of how amazing Pearl Jam is when I listen to one of their songs. I even think of my 30th favorite PJ song as an incredibly awesome song. Even songs below that! This band is rated pretty high, but they still could be much higher, which is why I put Pearl Jam at number one. - Songsta41

174 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

175 Kansas Kansas Kansas is an American rock band that became popular in the 1970s initially on album-oriented rock charts and later with hit singles such as "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind".

Tremendous catalog with a large number of songs that are much better than their long list of hits. Also, great live performers who are able to connect with their audience either in an arena or a small outdoor venue. They define underrated.

Best classic progressive rock and roll band ever. Amazing live, they don't miss! ~ If you haven't seen them, you must as a bucket list item! Songs that matter, lyrics that hit home, musical talent over the top. Someone described it best, its like 6 Beethovens on the stage at once!

176 Status Quo

Oh my god. If you see how much their records are worth the you'll see. You look at Pink Floyd and they sold MILLIONS of albums yet they are worth $50-$100. Status quo? $1 dollar bin. So underrated it's not even funny. Better than acdc. Listen to roll over lay down. A fantastic band that has been lost in time. Please listen to this band.

I love BMTH so much. They are making great music and the best lyrics. But a lot of people hate them because the change from deathcore to rock. But I love their new music. They deserve more.

178 Emerson, Lake & Palmer Emerson, Lake & Palmer Emerson, Lake & Palmer were an English progressive rock supergroup formed in London in 1970. The band consisted of keyboardist Keith Emerson, singer, bassist, and producer Greg Lake, and drummer and percussionist Carl Palmer. V 1 Comment
179 Dinosaur Jr.

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

180 Diamond Head Diamond Head Diamond Head are an English heavy metal band formed in 1976 in Stourbridge, England. The band is recognised as one of the leading members of the new wave of British heavy metal and is acknowledged by thrash metal bands such as Metallica and Megadeth as an important early influence.

Black Sabbath is to Heavy Metal as Diamond Head is to Thrash. Diamond Head really doesn't get much credit at all, which is odd considering their old school feel, creativity, and influence.
