Most Underrated Classic Rock Songs


The Top Ten

1 I Can See for Miles - The Who

By a mile the most inventive song. It should have made number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic

2 Stone Cold Crazy - Queen

This is more hard rock than classic rock

3 Hallelujah - Deep Purple
4 Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones
5 Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie V 1 Comment
6 Layla - Derek and the Dominos

The Eric Clapton solo version is more popular, but I prefer this version - gemcloben

7 Misty Mountain Hop - Led Zeppelin
8 You Better Run - The Young Rascals

Most people will always relate Pat Benatar with this classic. Most people are very unaware that she covered this song. Now that's truly underrated for sure. I truly prefer the original. Most people don't think of The Rascals when someone mentions the song. Sad, really!

9 Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution - AC/DC
10 Feelin' Satisfied - Boston

I'd say underrated. The album "Don't Look Back" was released in 1978 and was later released as a single. Only went to #46. Very little airplay and most people only remember the single Don't Look back from the album. Sad, cool song!

The Contenders

11 Eli's Coming - Three Dog Night
12 Crossroads - Cream
13 Helter Skelter - The Beatles
14 Fool In the Rain - Led Zeppelin

A truly good song from Zeppelin that you don't hear much about. One of the better songs off this album. Excellent, really. This song needs credit along with others we all heard so much of. Younger listeners need to hear this and not just their, well you know. Just a gem!

15 The March of the Black Queen - Queen
16 Gone Hollywood - Supertramp

I like Breakfast In America, it is a excellent album. This is one of the best tracks and it's a very underrated song off that album.

The most prog rock song in this album, it's truely a masterpiece of Rick Davies

17 For Your Love - The Yardbirds
18 Victim of Love - Eagles

Everyone knows all their really big hits. This song is just as good as any of them and is the most underrated of their songs. Don't hear this song often as all the songs we have over heard since the 70's and 80's.

19 Nobody's Fault - Aerosmith
20 Stone In Love - Journey

Of all the Journey hits and singles this one fell through the cracks and is actually much better than those singles we have all heard Over and Over. This is not so boring and is hardly heard and not thought of when people discuss Journey.

Yes, it was even left off their first greatest hits though it had a short run on rock stations in 1982.. Did not show up until their more recent essential hits release.
