DJZeezo
Awesome songs we've missed because they didn't get the audience they deserved... songs we should hear!

The Top Ten

1 Wagon Wheel - Old Crow Medicine Show

Love this song and the hoodie release is crap!

The song seems a little bit... underwhelming... country and four chord progression, NEXT! - 9spaceking

This is my mother's favorite song

I can say I liked them before they were popular. - Merilille

3 Handlebars - Flobots

I've always loved this song and another underrated song by this band is rise

Heard it by chance and I gotta say, it's pretty cool

Amazing band and amazing song.

I've loved this song so much

4 Savior - Rise Against

Great Song! I couldn't stop listening to this song since the first time I listened to it. Guys listen to this song, It will change your life!

I really love this song! Since I heard it, I couldn't stop searching for it, and when I found it I couldn't help but listening to it over and over again.

People of this generation no longer know the meaning of music with true meaning
While this may seem like a love song on the surface, the message hoped to be conveyed is about saving Mother Nature and NO THIS IS NOT CHEESY
Other songs of RA are also really insightful and meaningful

5 Pork and Beans - Weezer

A decent power pop song examining the ideas of conformity, success and trying to be an independent artist. Oh, and the video is great too. - Mrveteran

Haven't known weezer for too long, but I'm the proud owner of all their album now and Pork and Beans is easily in my top 10 (if we exclude the songs from Pinkerton)

6 Anathema - Anathema

One of the most underrated masterpiece.

This is the most underrated song of the most underrated band ever!

This is absolutely fantastic song! )

I haven't found like them...i don't need advertising to listen to a special band but
God knows they are great

7 Lovers - Jackie Evancho

Theme from the movie "House of Flying Daggers", an absolutely spectacular performance.

Jackie elevates a movie theme into a vocal and emotional manifesto. - BobG

One of my all time favorite performances.

How exactly do the comments have more likes than all the rest total? Oh yeah. BOTS. - naFrovivuS

8 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

Greatest eminem song by far. Super underrated and under played. Eminem is one of the greatest rappers to do it and this song is a great example

Fantastic song but often overlooked because it wasn't a single.

One of the best rap songs of all time

Better than lose yourself.

9 Rise - Flobots
10 DoYaThing - Gorillaz, James Murphy and André 3000

Great song, and a nice closing chapter for Gorillaz at that point. That is until their new album comes out this year... - Mrveteran

Yas

The Contenders

11 You are Unstoppable - Conchita Wurst

Great song, great singer, great voice!

Her voice gives you goosebumps! She's so talented that sometimes I can't believe she's real. Her live performances are the best experiences in my life. Oh, and she's absolutely amazing person.

Great voice and all of her songs are amazing. If you were once at a concert of Conchita, you'll never forget that and want to see and hear her live again and again.

Great Song with Conchita's Magical Voice and a Great Message :-)) Our Unstoppables Song ;-)

12 Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy

When I first heard this, I was like... That's really Fall Out Boy? It sounds so different from their more recent hits like Centuries. This is one of my favorite songs of all time and it's amazing.

I LOVE THIS SONG and Jetpack Blues. Great now I want to listen to Fall Out Boy. - Merilille

Best song EVER

13 Wretches and Kings - Linkin Park

His is so good song I think it would on 1

What a great beat, can't believe I haven't heard his before..

14 Hero - Skillet

Such a breath taking song that should have made better success! - DJZeezo

This song makes me think of Ghost town:Spark Awesome sound in your face vocals.

If you like this song try their other song rise

This song is the begining for me to listen to rock and roll it s just awesome just listen to it

15 Lux Aeterna - Clint Mansell

I'm sure most people didn't know the name of this song until now, but it's so awesome!

Yeah, the full orchestral version is amazing. This is not underrated, because is the best one from the modern orchestral music, followed by Hans Zimmer's "Time". Is just the genre, not suitable for top 40.

Perfectly captures the tone of the accompanying movie

This song is the reason I searched for other underrated songs. Can't believe its not the first. Beautiful music nahh grandiose music

16 Come With Me Now - Kongos

Great song, Kongos should be more famous by their job than they actually are...

17 A Lifetime of Adventure - Tuomas Holopainen

Would love to see a duet of this singer with Veela.

18 Blue Tattoo - Vanilla Ninja
19 Bombs Away - B.o.B

This song is narrated by Morgan Freeman! It has to be #1

20 The Islander - Nightwish
21 Dying Words - Nu Pagadi
22 Over and Over - Three Days Grace

Songs that make it to a top ten list aren't underrated.

One of the best romance song by a hard rock band, give it a listen to the end.

This song is certainly underrated in the UK as very few people have heard it here which is a shame.

It's a beautiful song with great great great lyrics. Although it's about drugs, I can't imagine a love more honest like this one.

23 Serenata Immortale - Immediate Music

Speechless! This is pure perfection. More people should listen to this Symphony. One of the greatest ever made.

You can say it's one of the best musical symphonies ever made!
It should be known by everyone, that's why it's underrated!

24 Masterpiece - Madonna
25 Hurricane - Thirty Seconds to Mars

Amazing song, it really is haunting. It's to bad it's not so known like other "garbage songs" from these days.

Most haunting and beautiful song ever!
Definitely one of the most underrated songs of the 21st century. Jared Leto's voice is amazing!

Amazing, my favourite song ever, and still it is very underrated, Jared Letos voice is beautiful;

26 Here I Am - Bryan Adams
27 Lovesongs (They Kill Me) - Cinema Bizarre
28 Brave - Jennifer Lopez
29 4 In the Morning - Gwen Stefani
30 Time of Dying - Three Days Grace
31 Fix You - Coldplay

Cause it's amazing
Because of the effect that was clearly put in from Cold play, and because it simply sounds great and is so underrated. Go

Hey...232 million listens on spotify... this is one of Coldplay's go to songs... it might justify being liked but it is most certainly not overrated... I've been to 2 Coldplay concerts and both have had fix you... Just because no one is talking about it now doesn't mean it wasn't hyped before...it was really popular... Sorry for so many ellipses... just... I don't think you know what you're talking about...

its bae m8

32 Seventeen - Jet
33 Forever - Sandra
34 From Sarah With Love - Sarah Connor
35 Midnight Strikes - Lafee
36 Songs of Love and Death - Beyond the Black
37 Acrylics - TNGHT
38 Turn Up the Radio - Story of the Year
39 This Means War - Nickelback
40 Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst

Rise like a Phoenix is an amazingly powerful ballad with a strong message of respect,hope and tolerance. Added to that, Conchita has such a great voice and unbelievable stage presence. What an incredible artist!

Best Eurovision winner ever.

41 Insomnia - Craig David

Its awesome! One of the most underrated yet best! And yeaa it makes you wanna dance!

42 I'm with You - Avril Lavigne

This song breaks my heart

I love this

43 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

Beautifully emotional, the deepest song that I have ever experienced and I will always love Green Day and billie joe!

I don't think I'd say this is underrated. It's a great song (and a sad one) but I think most people are very familiar with it. Definitely not overrated either though

44 Still - Ben Folds
45 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

This song is so personal and emotional and it tells a story. It's so powerful and it shows up real pain and sorrow and real emotion. How can you people listen to Justin Bieber and you forget great talents like the EVANESCENCE?

This song is one of the best songs I've ever heard in my entire life.

Its amasing I loved Evanesence ever sence this song

46 Let It Rock - Kevin Rudolf

How is this song in any way underrated? This song was on a lot of charts in over 10 countries. If anything this song is over-rated! Sure, it's a great song but it's not underrated.

47 Butterflies - Karl Wolf

Lovely song!... So much for the underrated statements. Sometimes people don't listen to stuff as they should

48 Piece of Me - Britney Spears
49 Bleed It Out - Linkin Park
50 All Good Things (Come to an End) - Nelly Furtado

Aww yeah, this brings back so much memories, I used to go to the park at night and lye down right in the middle of the soccer field with Mary jane
