Most Underrated Rock Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Lying from You - Linkin Park

This song is absolutely amazing and I wish more people knew about it because the whole song is brilliant. The music is really good and the lyrics are quite deep and it is one of my favourite songs from Linkin Park, but only Linkin Park fans seem to know this song. I love LP so much but I think songs like this should be more famous than In The End and Numb

This is really an underrated song. ONLY Linkin Park fans know about this song, even though it's so good, the whole world should know about it

So this is 27 and under it is sultans of swing... Wow, the lack of appreciation would be overwhelming if it didn't happen for every great song out there!

This song is one of LP best

42 You Could Be Mine - Guns N' Roses

The Use Your Illusion albums, though reasonably popular at the time, were absolutely loaded with filler and a metric ton of power ballads. Luckily, this isn't one of those songs. Forget about depressing breakups and moping about war, this is Guns N' Roses, just like you knew them from 1987.

43 Election Day - Arcadia
44 Dominance and Submission - Blue Oyster Cult

Sledgehammer riffs. Intense drama and urgency. Killer guitar solo by Buck Dharma at the end of the song.

45 Head Crusher - Megadeth

It's Megadeth, is all I have to say...

46 Had Enough - Mr. Big

One of if not THE most underrated band if all time

47 Set Me Free - Sweet
48 Working Class Hero - John Lennon
49 Frantic - Metallica

I love this song, and all of St. Anger. How is Stairway to Heaven underrated? It is the most overrated song next Barracuda! - gibsonrock53

50 Highway to Hell - AC/DC

Man this song is great. And Barracuda is OVERrated dumbass - MetalGod

51 Livin' In the Limelight - Peter Cetera

Great song and is very underrated. This list says nothing about a song having to be a great masterpiece. Some really good, cool songs don't get heard and they should people might just enjoy them as just a good rock song.

So underrated and a cool surprise rock song by Peter. Only got airplay on rock stations in very late 81 and early 82. Never hit the popular music stations.

Never heard such great song so underrated.

This song So underrated.

52 Something in the Way - Nirvana

This song is from Nevermind, and Nevermind got great reviews on almost all songs.

So how is this song underrated?

Nirvana is not underrated.

This song has like no credibility compared to there big stuff. Plus it's haunting sound that makes everyone feel emotions, which In my opinion, makes a great song. - dovf

Most underrated Canadian band ever!

This is the lost track of all time fantastic guitar work great tune - InvisableSteve

54 Rotten Apple - Alice in Chains V 1 Comment

Bully Corgan actually intended this song to be a massive radio hit but unfortunately that never happened.
