Top Ten Most Underrated Songs

The Top Ten

1 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


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

2 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

More like overrated.

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.

Good? yes. Overrated? hell no! - SnuckleBerg

4 High Hopes - Pink Floyd

I'm crying almost every time I'm listening this one - 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.

5 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!

<3 Love This Song.

6 You Know You're Right - Nirvana
7 Learning to Fly - Pink Floyd

100% it’s a masterpiece

8 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.

Never heard it (i'm like a really big Michael jackson fan)

9 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

I listen to him anywhere anytime and he's brought me out quite abit before listening to him makes me think E-Dubble for LIFE!

10 The Trial - Pink Floyd

Crazy :o

The Newcomers

? Rockstar - Nickelback
? S.O.S D'un Terrien En Détresse - Dimash Kudaibergen

The Contenders

11 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

12 Longview - Green Day
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 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

15 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!

16 The Bird and the Worm - Owl City


17 Nightswimming - R.E.M.

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!
