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

Anything from Division Bell can easily make this list. - galaxyfox

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

This is a very good song. The bells sounds so cool! - Userguy44

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.

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

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

It's pretty underrated. Great song. - Userguy44

4 Isle of Islay - Donovan

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

5 You Know You're Right - Nirvana

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

6 Number Thirteen - Red Fang

That riff is awesome and catchy! - LightningStrike

7 The Show Must Go On - Queen

Not underrated and overrated. Perfectly rated is how I'll say it. - Userguy44

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.

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

8 Total Football - Parquet Courts

Great riffs and genius lyrics. It even contains an F bomb at the end just to surprise people. - LightningStrike

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.

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?

100% it’s a masterpiece

12 I Found - Amber Run

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

13 Transmission - Zedd
14 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

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

17 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

18 Coast to Coast - Europe

So... The final countdown is the only song you can think of from them? - LightningStrike

19 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

20 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

21 The Bird and the Worm - Owl City


22 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

23 Elephant - Tame Impala
24 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.

25 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!

26 The Cut Runs Deep - Deep Purple
27 How You Remind Me - Nickelback
28 You Think You Know - Device
29 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!

30 Rude Boy - Rihanna
31 Over the Hills and Far Away - Gary Moore
32 Are You Ready? - Hazen Street
33 Surf Hell - Little Barrie

Catchiness right here. - LightningStrike

34 C'mon C'mon - Def Leppard

38 If We Only - Red
39 Kid In Love - Shawn Mendes
