Top 10 Most Underrated Musicians


The Top Ten

1 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era, born in Salzburg.

In retrospective, Mozart is not overrated because he influenced the popularity of classical music, as well as being an influence for several artists coming after him. - Swellow

2 Johann Sebastian Bach Johann Sebastian Bach

He HAD to go and write the Fancy-dancy songs of torture. (AKA the Minuets) - Merilille

3 Antonio Vivaldi Antonio Vivaldi
4 Passenger Passenger Michael David Rosenberg, better known by his stage name Passenger, is an English singer-songwriter and musician.
5 George Harrison George Harrison George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles.

A very underrated solo career. - MontyPython

For sure.

6 Richard Wagner Richard Wagner Wilhelm Richard Wagner was a German composer, theatre director, polemicist, and conductor who is primarily known for his operas.

He's one of those musicians whom are in the shadows of Beethoven and Bach. - MontyPython

7 Georg Solti
8 Carlos Santana Carlos Santana Carlos Santana audio is a Mexican and American musician who first became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music.
9 Ludwig van Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers.

Beethoven is NOT underrated. He is perfect!

He's a genius, all people care about nowadays is pop and rap ( worst music )

10 Tech N9ne Tech N9ne more.

Do people even know what underrated means? The most famous classical composers of all time are not underrated. I'm pretty sure at least 90% of the world population has heard at least a few of Beethoven's songs, whether they know it or not. Tech N9ne, on the other hand, is great, but not a lot of people know about him. - Zach808

Why is Beethoven at #1? Where's Marianas Trench? Madvillain? Run the Jewels? The only person deserving of the top 10 that is there is Tech N9ne. - WonkeyDude98

Nope, Beethoven deserves the first position. There's no classical music in the famous radios. - malamJONES

A favorite of all the Eedjits, who seem to like him a lot better than Beethoven. Yeah, and "Madvillan", he is a lot better than that Mozart guy, everybody knows that.
