Most Underrated Rock Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Art of Life - X Japan
22 Fortuneteller - Deep Purple

Anything by Deep Purple, really. - Brobusky

23 Civil War - Guns N' Roses

Voting Civil War as it is the only underrated song here! Some people need to read the dictionary, how is Stairway to Heaven and We are the champions underrated?

What we've got here... Is failure... To communicate.

Or just failure to understand why this isn't higher on the list. Some of the songs here are also overrated. Perfect example: BARRACUDA.

How the heck are many of the songs above this underrated, Stairway to Heaven is one of the most known and liked songs of all time, My criteria for underrated, Not in top ten songs of all time period

For me their best song (>Estranged>Don't Cry>Live And Let Die), period.

24 She Sells Sancturary - The Cult

Underrated? This was a big hit in the 80's. Was very big also in New-wave clubs at the time. I know, I was there.

A true gem of the 80's

Brilliant

Great song - ChatonNoir

25 Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin

Awesome song that is in my opinion a lot better than stairway to heaven due mostly to that killer guitar riff and jimi's solo work in the middle of the song. Led Zeppelin's best song by far and yet most people only know them because of stairway to heaven.

Older folk are people and as far as we are concerned there are even more underrated songs by them than this. Quite a popular song for us back then.

26 Hell Is for Children - Pat Benatar

Provocative lyrics? Yes but the song is awesome. You can't deny that - PowerGirl

A good song however it seems like it's pro abortion and that's not good

27 Polyamorous - Breaking Benjamin

This song is absolutely unbelievable! One of the best songs ever produced! Such an underrated band...

28 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater
29 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

No way in hell this song is underrated. Go to the best songs of all time list and see how far you have to scroll down until you see this song. Oh wait you don't, it's #1 already. This song is insanely overrated, because it's very good, but very, very far from being the best song of all time. - Songsta41

When people ask me what song I am listening to and I say Bohemian Rhapsody, most of them say "What's a 'bohemian rhapsody'? " And that gets me so mad. People don't know the greatest song ever. Isn't that sad to you?!

It doesn't, because even fewer people know the ACTUAL greatest song ever, Fade to Black by Metallica. - Songsta41

This is a great song but far from underrated. Take it from someone past 50. Us older rockers know. I think it was also used in a very popular teen movie decades after the song was released in the 70's. I think most people even young people know the song and the movie which gave it even more exposure. Underrated, NOT!

What am I seeing here?!

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? - zxm

Killer song, Chris Cornell hits some extremely high notes. - zachmandude

34 37 Stitches - Drowning Pool
35 Can't Let You Go - Rainbow
36 Heaven's Drive - L'arc~en~ciel

this song is less popular than barracuda, we are the champions, stairway to heaven and bohemian rhapsody because a a japanese song can hardly compete with those american and other western very commercialized songs - ronluna

its guitar riffs and basslines are amazing with the fast beat of the drums and rocking vocals in alternative style. one of the most requested l'arc songs - ronluna

a GREAT song that isn't known for much pepole
i think is very underrated, if it were more known, im sure that a lot of people would like it!

if a japanese band can be more famous this song will become more known in the world - ronluna
