283 Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

Pierce the veil is one of my all time favorite bands. They're lyrics are so relatable and so are the members story. They deserve to be higher than this. 134!? Come on. They're better than that

Just a good rock band to listen to when ever

You're kidding right? 125th? Is this some sort of joke. LISTEN TO A MATCH INTO WATER enough SAID LATER HATERS

This is the most inaccurate list I've ever seen. How is it possible that PTV is placed this low?

On Layla alone, they deserve to be in the top 100

Eric Clapton. Anybody remember him?

Get this and other great bands above all that emo garbage.

This is terrible to be this far down the list, if you can even call it that!

286 Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane was a San Francisco, California-based band who pioneered the American counterculture movement as well as psychedelic rock. more.

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!

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

In simple words, they make music for the soul. Music that describes your feeling to a perfect T. They're relatively new but they're so so so so awesome. SHAKE IT OUT and NEVER LET ME GO are such amazingly and deeply beautiful songs

297 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.

Ever I have I have come across this I'd fall in love with this every music they released it was just awesome I'd love jimmie, zandro the screamer of dis rock... Thanking Dead By April you will always rock... Love Dead by April

299 The Animals The Animals The Animals were an English band of the 1960s, formed in Newcastle upon Tyne, during the early part of the decade.

The Animals at 812?!?! No! None of the five hundred bands ahead of them even exist for more than five people! They made House of the Rising Sun, and they were one of the greatest bands of the 60's. The Animals deserve to be at least in the top 100.

The Animals are my favorite band, next to Pink Floyd. Eric Burdon has an amazing voice, and they have really smooth flow. It's a shame to see them so low. For me, they're the most underrated band ever. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Talk about disrespecting a great band of the 60s! Their rendition of an old, old folk song, The House of the Rising Sun is at least in the top fifty of best songs. Eric Burdon? If you have never heard them you should make the effort,

You must be kidding

300 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

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