402 Bowling For Soup Bowling For Soup Bowling for Soup is an American rock band originally formed in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1994. The band consists of Jaret Reddick, Chris Burney, Erik Chandler, and Gary Wiseman.

So amazing live they deserve to be in the top 100 they are guna b punk ledgends

Bowling for soup is okay they are not really that good I think doing covers on other songs is fine but when you make a official music video of other songs is kinda of a dick move - TheUltimateNavigator1

This should be in the top!
They sound great and they add twinges of humor to their songs. They're hilarious. I love them!

403 Clutch Clutch Clutch is an American rock band based out of Frederick, Maryland, originating in Germantown, Maryland.
404 Twisted Sister Twisted Sister Twisted Sister is an American heavy metal band originally from Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, and later based in Long Island, New York.

Worst band in the history of the World!

I think they aren't good at all... Please, admit it, they damn SUCK!

They are amazingly bad.

406 Yellowcard Yellowcard

Instrumentally they are the most catchy rock band alive

407 The Jam The Jam

One of the best British bands ever. Paul Weller is on par with Davies and Townshend, meaning that, yes, HE IS A GOD.

So good. Everything Weller has done is great. Yes, even The Style Council.

Where are the Mod voters? Weller is god.

412 Air Supply

Their songs maybe the best soulful songs of all time

This is a cool band why it in 481? It should be top 100

413 Hinder Hinder Hinder is an American rock band from Oklahoma that was formed in 2001 by drummer Cody Hanson, lead singer Austin Winkler and guitarist Joe "Blower" Garvey.

Nice Rock Band... pretty nice music.. Lips of an Angel and The Life are really amazing songs.. they should have been on a higher rank..

I don't know who... Why they aren't in top 100. They are really a best underrated rock band of all time

414 Third Eye Blind

Seriously has to be considered one of the best bands of the 90's behind the Smashing Pumpkins along with a few others.

415 Traveling Wilburys Traveling Wilburys

Have all the best Tom Petty Bob Dylan Roy Oribson George Harrison and Jeff Lyne

Statistically speaking in albums sold as a group and in their respecyive bands, Wilburys are the most famous super group of all time. In two albums they accomplished what most bands can't do in 20. 252. This list is pathetic

416 Phoenix

If Jethro Tull is in the top 100, phoenix should be in the top ten.

Phoenix started in as old as The Rolling Stones and still rock. The've changed from phyhaderic to heavy metal yet they have only one reson to be underrated... The're from Romania and not many people know them.

417 Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney.

Gods of alternative rock. Instrumental ( along with REM ) in bringing the underground into the mainstream.

Can't believe so low, I have seen these guys in concert couple of years ago... Dave Navarro is a beast!

Criminally underrated on this list. This is a top 30 band.

Great great band. Perkins and Navarro are pure power.

418 The Sweet The Sweet

At the time (73 - 77) they were the best heavy rock band! Listen to Sweet fanny adams and give us a wink and you know what I mean. And by the way they had hits like Fox on the run, Action and Ballroom Blitz and they all got covered by great bands but they never reached the intension like Sweet did.

The most underrated music act of all time always dismissed as another act that never should have been let out of the bag

One of the most underrated bands. The Sweet have to be ranked higher because they rock the house with songs like Ballroom Blitz or Fox on the Run.

A great band of the 70s. It's too bad they're only ranked 302 but its good to know they're not forgotten. - AlexandeHoyte

419 Garbage Garbage Garbage is an American-Scottish alternative rock band formed in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1993. The group consists of Scottish musician Shirley Manson and American musicians Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig.

Can't believe Garbage is in such a garbage position! You should listen to their first album, each song is great. And their work is still amazing, as we can see in NYKoP. Please vote!

One of the most underrated bands EVER

420 REO Speedwagon

Great rock songs like Golden Country, Riding the Storm Out, and 157 Riverside Avenue, to go along with their classic hits.

Come on PEOPLE! REO should at least be in the Top 20. THIS IS NUTS!

Wrong again, you'll just don't know your music!

WHAT?!?!? TOP TEN AT LEAST! I mean... Can't fight this Feeling? come on, guys!
