Top Ten Most Underrated Songs

The Top Ten

1 High Hopes - Pink Floyd

Love you pink floyd, this song should be in top of all time songs

I'm agree this song is so beatiful and unknown, one of my favorite song - wavedimp089

This is the best Pink Floyd song. In my opinion, its inte of the best Songs of all time, upp there with Bohmiean Rhapsody and Stairway. It’s pure art, it’s portrays real emotions, brilliant lyrics and a tune that stays in your mind. 10/10 Masterpiece in my opinion.

2 Bridge Burning - Foo Fighters

This is definitely one of their better songs. I don't know what people are saying radioactive is underrated for... That's the most overrated song in history if you ask me

Literally my favorite


Wow, didn’t expect this one to be number one or even on the list in that fact.

3 Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana

It's completely overshadowed by Smells Like Teen Spirit and the rest of Nevermind. Come to think of it, pretty much everything on In Utero is overshadowed by Nevermind.

One of the best songs in existence, yet so underrated.

Best nirvana song with difference.

Best nirvana album with diffence

Most underrated song, unfortunatley but also: every izzy stradlin song with Guns N' Roses is pretty underrated

Good? yes. Overrated? hell no! - SnuckleBerg

4 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

This is a good song but it's not really underrated it landed #3 for 2013's year long billboard hot 100 chart

This is one of the top hundred of 2014 how is that underrated its on the radio all the time?

Quite well known but should definitely be up there will songs like somebody that I used to know, in my opinion this is much better. - NathanT

I like this song

5 You Know You're Right - Nirvana
6 Ghost - Michael Jackson

This has awesome music and a pretty good tune and lyrics too. I was shocked to see this one near the bottom in the MJ list. Hear it!

So underrated! This is REAL MUSIC! And people like songs such as anaconda, problem.. Lol.. Michael Jackson's songs are pure magic. His voice, the beat, the melody.. Just magically beautiful. I am truly shocked to see MJ's name here.. Have some shame people

Lemme guess, you've never heard of it.

Better listen to it fast, else Michael Jackson's ghost will haunt you. Oh and did I mention this song has has the longest music video in history at almost 40 mins long?

7 The Show Must Go On - Queen

Easily one of queens bests, same with innuendo and princes of the universe.

The show must go on is one of the most powerful songs of all time, if you know the story behind it it gets even better, and the lyrics, the lyrics in my opinion even rivals bohmiean rhapsody.

Freddie does it best

Where is shake a leg acdc it's a great song

8 The Trial - Pink Floyd

Crazy :o

9 Learning to Fly - Pink Floyd

100% it’s a masterpiece

10 How to Save a Life - The Fray

This song is not underrated. The band is underrated though, but I'd almost guarantee that most people who got into "The Fray" was because of this song. Still, it's a great song regardless. - CrimsonShark

Just listen. No more words. Amazing - NathanT

I love the lyrics, the beat, the band... I really love it!

Very meaningful with a nice tune... Not too underrated though

The Newcomers

? This Sad Bouquet - The Ark

One doesn't vote on the really underrated songs, because everyone just votes on what he already knows. - Alkadikce

? Slither - Velvet Revolver

The Contenders

11 Longview - Green Day
12 Be a King - E-Dubble

This guy makes average rap look like monotone casual talk about money and hoes. He raps about things that are going on in his life and turned rapping into an outlet of joy and happiness, for not only himself but for us too. I can't tell you how many times I listened to Be A King. It's my favourite song on the planet.

He is the best! Nobody knows him but his rap is some of the best in the world. In my opinion he beats out some like: Dre, Tupac, and B.I.G. you can't be e-dub.

This man is generally underrated, but this is his top hit, amazing! - NathanT

This guy is so underrated! - Hypocrite

13 Every Planet We Reach Is Dead - Gorillaz

The whole band itself is underrated, with the exception of a few singles. This song along with their others are true art.

The album is the most overrated of all of gorillaz' albums in my opinion, but this song is underrated indeed. - yutex

14 I Found - Amber Run

This song is peacefull, healing, beautiful, cute and unknown

15 This Is How We Do - Katy Perry

As a fan of Katy Perry, I can't really understand how this song managed to be in this list. It's easily one of the less interesting songs on Prism album alone! It shouldn't have been a single, at the first place... - JustinTime

16 Waiting for My Real Life to Begin - Colin Hay

A truly graet song and definitely deserves more attention, so so so powerful and full of meaning with beautiful lyrics and excellent guitar!

17 The Bird and the Worm - Owl City


18 Nightswimming - R.E.M.

Greatest REM song of all time

Beautiful song. A must play in the night in the suburbs. I just want to go and take a warm bath in a pool at night. Also, the piano and the strings!

19 The Cut Runs Deep - Deep Purple
20 Hide Away - Daya

If anything this song is overrated. Daya's seriously talented I'll give her that, her lyricism could you some work though - ProPanda

This song shares a great point of view on boys for a teenage girl.
