Clueless people tend to know The Beatles, the Stones and Led Zeppelin but not The Who even though The Who are arguably as great as those other 3 bands so that's why I would say a little under-rated. - Garjen
Underrated? Are you kidding? You go to any record store and you will find records of " The Who ". That's not what I really call underrated.
Underrated? They were one of the most influential bands of the British invasion. - naFrovivuS

7 The Doors
The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.
