Top Ten Most Underrated Songs

The Top Ten

1 High Hopes - Pink Floyd

No matter how good this song is, it is nowhere near to being underrated, let alone be the "most underrated". - Joeljohns249

You can't expect a little-known song to be at #1. If a voter has a relatively small music knowledge, he will be likely to vote a well-known song. In case the voter knows hundreds of hundreds of songs, he will vote on a song most voters haven't heard of or have heard of but favor another unknown song.

In conclusion, the list order is dominated by remixes of users who have just started exploring a certain genre that fascinates them (the well-known songs) or hardly look outside the mainstream; because these remixes are likely to have overlaps and push those overlaps up the ranking. REAL underrated songs might take the majority of the items, but not the votes. - Alkadikce

No song even comes close to this...this is an absolute Magnum Opus

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

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

This has about 200 million views on YouTube, and is ranked #2 on Best Nirvana Songs, only behind you know which song. How is it underrated? - Alkadikce

It's overshadowed by Come As You are and Smells Like Teen Spirit. - Userguy44

Do you want to know what's actually underrated? Plural for Sheep by The Sunstreak. Seriuosly, it only has 5,000 views on youtube. Look it up, and tell me that that song is not underrated.

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.

4 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

Did you know this song stayed on the charts the longest in billboard history? With a ground breaking year and a half? Yeah, no, not underrated - Cohaki

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

More like overrated.

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

5 The Show Must Go On - Queen

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.

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

Freddie does it best

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

6 You Know You're Right - Nirvana

Nothing really bothers her,
She just wants to love herself.

7 Learning to Fly - Pink Floyd

Love this song. - MrSnuffleupagus

100% it’s a masterpiece

8 I Found - Amber Run

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

9 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.

One of the greatest Michael Jackson songs ever!

10 The Trial - Pink Floyd

Crazy :o

The Contenders

11 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

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

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

12 Transmission - Zedd
13 Longview - Green Day
14 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

E-dub has more meaning than women and money in his lyrics. not to say all rappers are like that, but I prefer e-dubble over others.

15 The March of the Black Queen - Queen

This song is musically much better than many other mainstream Queen songs. However Queen was commercially savvy and decided to use simpler, more catchy songs knowing they would sell better; prime examples of this are "We will rock you" and "We are the champions". Sadly it was the music industry which held this masterpiece back. It is right up there with "Bohemian Rhapsody", and is made up of many similar themes.

Best song ever should be first on this list for me this is even better the bohemian rhapsody

16 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

17 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

18 The Bird and the Worm - Owl City


19 Isle of Islay - Donovan

Come on. You guys are missing out on masterpieces. - LightningStrike

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.

21 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!

22 The Cut Runs Deep - Deep Purple
23 How You Remind Me - Nickelback
24 You Think You Know - Device
25 C'mon C'mon - Def Leppard
26 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!

27 Rude Boy - Rihanna
28 Over the Hills and Far Away - Gary Moore
29 Are You Ready? - Hazen Street
30 Believe Again - Yes
31 Day After Day - Badfinger

This is Coldplay, COLDPLAY! - Anton110

This is a Coldplay Ft. Rihanna song!

34 If We Only - Red
35 Kid In Love - Shawn Mendes
36 Style - Taylor Swift

This and Wildest Dreams are the best songs on 1989. - allamassal
