261 Michael Learns to Rock

You gotta be deaf not to enjoy their songs. They put a new meaning to the genre of rock music. Sentimental music that warm one's heart and brings back much childhood memories.

Most underrated band ever. Shame before they can release The Actor in the US their label got broke, but now they have a huge Asian fanbase, so why don't the US go and have a try? - justinduongpiano

The melody and the lyrics of their songs are great! They should be on top 50 at least. What a discrimination in music industry we have. Gosh!

Mltr blue night, sleeping child, complicated heart are so good to listen to

With "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love" and "Volunteers" and "Martha" and "Young Girl Sunday Blues" and "Embryonic Journey" and "Crown of Creation" etc, this band is more than qualified as the most underrated on this list. - IgnoreThis

They are perfect, their music is just genius! And "Surrealistic Pillow" is surely a masterpiece... - apouroiselle

Pretty influential psychedelic band, arguably the innovators. Deserve to be in the top 59

You'll are wrong again! Another Great Band that's been thrown under the bus!

264 Dead by April

Dead by April truly rocks! They are the best. Their songs are so great because they make awesome lyrics, they play great guitar, the drumming is great, melodic vocals, best growling, and the synths also rock. Just listen to the songs Losing you and Stronger, I'm sure you'll get addicted to it. Dead by April probably the best band there is.

Just hear song Dead by April make life to the fullest, lyric full of deep meaning and music is really awesome and rocks.

266 Train Train Train is an American roots rock band from San Francisco, formed in 1993. The band currently consists of Patrick Monahan, Jimmy Stafford, Jerry Becker, Luis Maldonaldo, Hector Maldonado, Drew Shoals, Nikita Houston and Sakai Smith.

This is a band that doesn't just look good the music to this band is great. Some of my favorite songs from this band are "Hey Soul Sister" and "50 ways to say goodbye. " Honestly, I think this band deserves more attention. They have a variety of catchy music to pick from. I think all boy bands should consider following Train's lead.

Train is such a good band. They deserve to be higher. Drops of Jupiter, Calling all angels, and when I look to the sky are some of the best songs ever.

Good band very interesting songs

No words for their songs

268 All That Remains All That Remains All That Remains is an American heavy metal band from Springfield, Massachusetts, formed in 1998. They have released eight studio albums, a live CD/DVD, and have sold over a million records worldwide.

Seriously, this low? The only reason must be that there ain't many that have heard about them, if you haven't you should listen to at least one of their songs for example: the waiting one is Awesome.

these guys are awesome from great singer to awesome solos

These guys are on the list twice

269 Men at Work Men at Work Men at Work are an Australian rock/pop band formed in Sydney. The group is most famous for their hit, "Land Down Under"

Hits. That says it all. I'll admit they're not the "Best Band Ever" but they deserve to be much higher than 376!

270 Accept Accept Accept is a German heavy metal band from the town of Solingen, originally assembled by former vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann and bassist Peter Baltes.

They kick balls to the wall

271 Venom Venom Venom are an English extreme metal band formed in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne. Coming to prominence towards the end of the new wave of British heavy metal, Venom's first two albums—Welcome to Hell and Black Metal—are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general.

Why the heck is Venom is this place, they should be in top 100 for sure. Anyone who doesn't know this band should hear their album Metal Black

272 Bijelo Dugme
273 Matchbox Twenty

They're not rock, they are Pop.

274 Angra

This Band brings power to my veins.

276 Chickenfoot

This is an all star band! Sammy, Stach, etc. WAY HIGHER!


277 Relient K

This is just the best rock band of all time.
They have different styles from pop-punk to alternative rock to pop. If you're a Christian you just have to listen to them. With their lyrics they make you either laugh or think about your relationship to god.

I'm surprised they're this low. Mmhmm alone puts them easily in the top 50, and I would say their masterpiece Deathbed skyrockets them to the top 25.

278 Cryoshell

Let's be honest. Nobody knew who cryoshell was until they made songs for Bionicle. So far they only have 1 album and I can't wait for them to make more.

I didn't know Cryoshell was popular enough to make it on this chart! I mean, they're a great band, don't get me wrong. It's funny because I started listening to them when I was really young because they did music for Bionicle videos (I loved Bionicle) and they only have one album and a single out.

Anthem for BIONICLE, enough' said...
