Top 10 Most Underrated Songs of the 21st Century

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!

This is my mother's favorite song

For me, this is by far the best rendition of this song...

Got drunk at a bar...heard this song...went home and couldn't remember name of song...tried to call bar and see if waitress remembered song...she didn't...remembered wagon wheel and have loved this version ever since.

2 Anna Sun - Walk the Moon

This is too underrated, since Shut Up and Dance gained a global success. What's wrong with this song guys?

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 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)

5 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

6 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


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 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

15 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
