A great German prog band, one of the most underrated, too. They should definitely be in the top ten but gentle giant should be number 1. I don't think porcupine tree is underrated at all, and if anything, overrated as a prog group

37 Genesis Genesis Genesis are an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey in 1967. The most commercially successful and long-lasting line-up includes keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins.

Sure, Genesis may not be very underrated in terms of progressive rock and its fans, but in general, not enough people know about this band. Even it's 80's music (which is FANTASTIC by the way, give it a chance even though it's not as long and complex as the 70's stuff) doesn't have enough followers, even though it may seem like it compared to the more progressive music of early Genesis. Fans of the 80's music should know more about the 70's music with Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett, and ALL of Genesis's music should be more appreciated! Progressive rock fans may commonly mention Genesis, but for a band this good, not nearly enough people know about and listen to their music.

Genesis is hardly underrated, if at all.
That being said,The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is definitely worth checking out if you haven't already.

38 Riverside Riverside Riverside is a progressive rock/metal band from Warsaw, Poland. It was founded in 2001 by friends Mariusz Duda, Piotr GrudziƄski, Piotr Kozieradzki and Jacek Melnicki, who shared a love for progressive rock and heavy metal.
