I love this song, esp. Gillan vocals and how he growls a little bit. - Metal_Treasure

Great song!

25 Any Fule Kno That

I like this song of 1998 - I would say it's more unnoticed than underrated. Basically all Deep Purple songs that were released after their peak in the 70s aren't well known. These songs are underrated because people don't know them and not because they don't like them. - Metal_Treasure

26 Love Conquers All
27 Fools
28 When a Blind Man Cries
29 Mistreated
30 Smoke On the Water

This song isn't underrated. - zxm

It's not underrated and wasn't added by me. It's the most popular DP song. - Metal_Treasure


31 A Touch Away

A song with very good riff. Why only stick with Smoke On the Water. Come on Deep Purple has other good songs too. - zxm

32 The Spanish Archer
33 Fireball

The first metal song with double bass drum (1971). Ian Paice was really very creative - he just put a second bass drum and played them both. Yeah, it was a very primitive double bass drum kit - nothing like the metal drum kits currently used. But his idea was priceless.
There's a video on YouTube and you can see how it was in the beginning (live) - Deep Purple just bring a second drum and "install it" onstage:

Lars Ulrich of Metallica attended this show when he was 9 and it blew his mind. - Metal_Treasure

34 The Bird Has Flown

Underrated track from the criminally underrated self-titled album

35 Hey Joe
36 Hard Road (Wring that Neck)
37 The Aviator

Another underrated song. Wasn't even on the list. - zxm

38 Never a Word

Very underrated song. Was on 108th. - zxm
