The Top Ten

1 Stuck In the Sound

Who are these guys or gals?

Poop - guitarhero2014

They have very good songs

Why did I come here - vikster66

2 Airbourne Airbourne

Awesome band - Runnin' Wild is one of the best Rock albums you've never heard of!

3 Diamond Head Diamond Head Diamond Head are an English heavy metal band formed in 1976 in Stourbridge, England. The band is recognised as one of the leading members of the new wave of British heavy metal and is acknowledged by thrash metal bands such as Metallica and Megadeth as an important early influence.

I would say they're more well known than other bands that could've made it to this list, but not too many people know about them. They have a unique sound that's definitely worth hearing so check it out.

Metallica copied them!

You must be joking. I man, one of the originators of the NWOBHM, and Metallica did a cover of one of its songs. Really?

Really good live, saw them in Blackpool at the Norbreck Nightspot, where Ozzy did his 1st solo gig

4 Chickenfoot

They are incredible! And take about amazing album cover design! 3D!

Oh, Yeah! Two ex-Van Halen members (Lead Singer and Bassist), Joe Satriani (one of the most important and influencial guitarists in music history) and Chad Smith (RHCP batterist). AWESOME!

5 Cracker
6 Modest Mouse Modest Mouse Modest Mouse is an American rock band formed in 1992 in Issaquah, Washington, and currently based in Portland, Oregon.

This band has son music that I adore. Also hit songs too. Float On probably being their greatest.

Not really unknown, but definitely criminally underrated.

I know them. - jack2244

Actually, they are pretty well-known among both critics and listeners. Ok, they may deserve a little more attention, but they aren't unknown.
That said, if you haven't listened to it, it has a really original sound (they're indie rock), with some poppy rythms (Good News For People Who Love Bad News) and a few more experimental tunes (The Moon And Antarctica).
Very Recommendable and easy to listen to, but this is definitelly not their list.

Umm no wonder the ASAP comp sucks - danielemmettescroggins

Had 3 really great songs...love their 80's synth music

8 Barclay James Harvest

Topping the bill on the Acoustic Stage at Galstonbury 2016, on the Friday night (49 years after they formed! )

An enigma of a band - they continue to fill concert halls all over Europe, as they have since the 70s, yet in their home country (even amongst residents of the Oldham/Saddleworth area, from whence they came) they are virtually unknown. The British people have missed out on some great music - one of the UK's best bands, and still producing original music. Their famous live album from the 70s is rated as one of the best live albums of all time. Their biggest concert was to an estimated 250,000 people in Berlin!

9 The Kooks The Kooks The Kooks are an English rock band formed in 2004 in Brighton. The band currently consists of Luke Pritchard, Hugh Harris, Alexis Nunez, and Peter Denton. The original bassist was Max Rafferty, and the founding drummer was Paul Garred. V 1 Comment
10 The Easybeats

The Contenders

11 Kara's Flowers

This band is Maroon 5 before they changed their name. Adam Levine and all. It's also a lot more rock than maroon 5s stuff today

12 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.
13 Band With No Name (BWNN)

Jeff Gutt and Gary Pittel absolutely SHINE as a duo in BWNN. Find a You Tube video with them, and watch Gary play guitar and Jeff sings. Amazing!

Jeff Gutt is so talented and amazing.

41 Neutral Milk Hotel

What..."In The Aeroplane Over The Sea" is one of the best-known albums in history. The only reason why it isn't as famous as other bands because NMH's genre ( Fuzz FOLK-rock? ) isn't really popular (not that profitable)! "Two Headed-Boy" just started playing in my mind...

Only made two albums - if you like your music alternative then give it a try

"Hollywood Undead as underrated and unknown", that's the biggest lie I have heard lol. I'm not their fan and I know they exist.
