Top Ten Most Underrated Songs

The Top Ten

1 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons 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

They're a ridiculously underrated band, but this and Demons were everywhere!

2 Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana 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.

3 Ghost - Michael Jackson 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)

8 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

The best of the best forever and ever - Ananya

The Newcomers

? Bridge Burning - Foo Fighters 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


The Contenders

11 This Is How We Do - Katy Perry This Is How We Do - Katy Perry
12 Waiting for My Real Life to Begin - Colin Hay 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!

13 Every Planet We Reach Is Dead - Gorillaz 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.

14 The Cut Runs Deep - Deep Purple The Cut Runs Deep - Deep Purple
15 The Bird and the Worm - Owl City The Bird and the Worm - Owl City
16 Nightswimming - R.E.M. 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!

17 Hide Away - Daya 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.

18 C'mon C'mon - Def Leppard C'mon C'mon - Def Leppard
19 You Think You Know - Device You Think You Know - Device
20 Transmission - Zedd Transmission - Zedd
