Top Ten Most Underrated Songs of the 2020s

Great songs of the music landscape of the 2020s decade that never got the attention they deserve. Whether it's because the artist is not famous (yet) or because it's overshadowed by the rest of their discography.
The Top Ten
1 Typhoons - Royal Blood Typhoons - Royal Blood Cover Art

Royal Blood in general is underrated.

2 Wild Child - The Black Keys Wild Child - The Black Keys Cover Art
3 Distance - Mammoth WVH Distance - Mammoth WVH Cover Art
4 By Your Side - Calvin Harris By Your Side - Calvin Harris Cover Art
5 Won't Stand Down - Muse Won't Stand Down - Muse Cover Art
6 Vessel - SheisArjuna Vessel - SheisArjuna Cover Art

A melody that's immensely memorable, strong emotive vocal delivery and don't get me started on these heavenly cinematic drums!

Never even heard of it before seeing this list, but it is good.

7 Video Fantasy - Roxi Drive Video Fantasy - Roxi Drive Cover Art

Roxi Drive embodies the 80s like no other current musician can. She live the campy fashion lifestyle and breathes pure neon. But even without the gimmick: her music is just simply good! Those are great pop earworms.

8 Making a Fire - Foo Fighters Making a Fire - Foo Fighters Cover Art
9 Protect the Land - System of a Down Protect the Land - System of a Down Cover Art
10 Adrenaline - Sheila Layter Adrenaline - Sheila Layter Cover Art

The Newcomers

? Talking to Myself - Sleeping with Sirens Talking to Myself - Sleeping with Sirens Cover Art

This song was released in July 2020 and it's 1 of the most underrated songs I've heard.

? The Foundations of Decay - My Chemical Romance The Foundations of Decay - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

This song is amazing, plus it's the 1st post reunion song MCR has released. I'm hoping they play this song at the concert I'm going to in October.

The Contenders
11 Boys Don't Cry - Anitta Boys Don't Cry - Anitta Cover Art

It's almost as iconic as "Physical" and "Blinding Lights", and straight up better than "Stay". It's a prime example of how great this updated modern approach to the Flashdance style is, and what good outcome we can expect of this wave.

12 Mood Ring - Lorde Mood Ring - Lorde Cover Art
13 Doll - Patricia Kelly Doll - Patricia Kelly Cover Art

As part of the Kelly Family, then young Patricia Kelly had a glowing career full of hits in Europe. Like much of her family, her solo music still has strong album sales, but unlike her brother Michael Patrick Kelly, her solo songs don't make it big on the charts anymore. Which is sad, as "Doll" is a strong female empowerment anthem.

14 Wake Me Up - Foals Wake Me Up - Foals Cover Art
15 Break My Heart Myself - Bebe Rexha Break My Heart Myself - Bebe Rexha Cover Art
16 Pajamazon! - The Aquabats! Pajamazon! - The Aquabats! Cover Art
17 Dancing Feet - Kygo Dancing Feet - Kygo Cover Art
18 Runaway - Nina Runaway - Nina Cover Art

Written by Ricky Wilde, brother and songwriter of new wave icon, Nina's "Runaway" is one of the most radio ready infectious synthwave singles ever released. The rhythm is just addictive and her voice is silky smooth as it slides over them.

19 Make Me Scream - Roxi Drive Make Me Scream - Roxi Drive Cover Art
20 Swerve - Papa Roach Swerve - Papa Roach Cover Art
21 The Reason Is You - Vanilla Ninja The Reason Is You - Vanilla Ninja Cover Art

The most unexpected comeback of the 2020s is not ABBA, but the Estonian all female rock band that set ablaze the 2000s. Out of their first album in 15 years, "The Reason is You" is the highlight, reminiscent of Kelly Clarkson style pop rock but with the distinct Vanilla Ninja touch.

22 Handcuffed to a Demon - Brandon Scott Handcuffed to a Demon - Brandon Scott Cover Art

Brandon Scott caught public attention as one of the biggest success stories of TLC's "My 600 lb Life". But don't let that fool you: this is far more than just a cash grab from a trashy TV show, as Scott is a talented singer and writer, and his debut single "Handcuffed To A Demon" is a radio ready rock ballad.

23 Fever - Dua Lipa & Angele Fever - Dua Lipa & Angele Cover Art
24 Don't Say I - Fuel Don't Say I - Fuel Cover Art
25 Planet Zero - Shinedown Planet Zero - Shinedown Cover Art
