The Top Ten

1 Green Grass and High Tides - Outlaws

It's definitely.At least the intro and solos are so awesome.And the singing style is very good - zxm

2 Stone Cold Crazy - Queen

That's true this was extremely underrated I have never even heard it be mentioned

3 Peace of Mind - Boston

So glad this is on the list. Amazing song!

4 (Don't Fear) the Reaper - Blue Öyster Cult

This is a most grotesque abomination for which Blue Ouster Cult should be forever shunned. It is a romanticization, a glorification of suicide. Even the screeching, shrieking, chaotic guitar solo sounds as though it was birthed in the bowels of Hell. It is not "art." It is mind-warping garbage.

5 Pictures of Home - Deep Purple

Amazing song with 5 solos on different instruments. Criminally underrated. - Metal_Treasure

6 Achilles Last Stand - Led Zeppelin
7 Stargazer - Rainbow

This song isn't totally rock but it's between heavy metal and hard rock.Plus it's underrated.That's why I added it - zxm

8 Sympathy - Uriah Heep
9 Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin
10 Halo of Flies - Alice Cooper

The Contenders

11 Speed King - Deep Purple
12 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits

A haunting fusion of country/western, jazz and rock, with licks having a subtle, Eastern European jazz flavor, a la Django Reinhardt.

I don’t think it’s underrated. - Userguy44

13 Lola - The Kinks

I love everything about this song!

14 Supper's Ready - Genesis

Prog rock at its best genius

15 Gotta Find a Way - Bloodrock

Come on, it's BLOODROCK! enough said.

16 Baby Blue - Chilliwack

One of my all time favourite songs! One of the greatest Canadian rock bands

17 Just When I Needed You Most - Randy Vanwarmer
