How one can said that Europe, Rush, ELO, the Smiths or Bjork are underrated??

I'm not a jusician but maybe you're right. That doesn't make them underrated anyway, specially if they are pretty known in music circles like you said.

Popularity doesn't equal to greatness at all

Bonnie Raitt. Particularly for her skill with the slide guitar.

The 70s music class I took in college really gave me a proper appreciation for Velvet Underground, and I'd agree with DDMac that as influential as they were/are, they don't often get mentioned in the same breath as some of the other pioneers of the era for whatever reason.

While this thread is still going, I forgot to mention the mighty KING'S X.



A band that should definitely get more recognition alongside the other greats of 90s hard rock and metal like Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins et al. Mixing metal, grunge, soul, funk, Beatles-style vocal harmonies along with a mighty feel good aura, it's virtually impossible not to appreciate them. I've never felt they've got the recognition they so rightfully deserve, as Out Of The Silent Planet and Gretchen Goes To Nebraska are near flawless IMO, and they're still around today!

Kings-X is a great call. Fantastic musicianship.

I`ll plug Fishbone. Punk-Funk-Soul-Rock-Metal-Jazz-Alternative fusion. There has never been another act quite like Fishbone.

I think Mike Patton is fucking great and underrated in basically everything he's even been involved with.

Not saying the bands are under-rated as a whole but I absolutely hate when the 80's output of a band that started in the 70's gets shitted on. Examples such as Rush, Genesis, Van Halen, etc. I personally think their best work came during the 80's (and not just the early 80's), but talk to most fans of the bands and it's "oh, the band was better with x as their lead singer" or "they sold-out" or "that's not true x." Fucking infuriates me. It's like, god forbid the band tries out a new sound and shows some diversity instead of AC/DC-ing it and making every album and song sound the same.

Phil Collins is the first person to come to mind though- I know he's HUGELY SUCCESSFUL beyond comprehension, but I don't think the man gets anywhere near the respect he deserves for being able to write timeless classic songs from the heart. You can truly tell that when he writes a sad song, he's genuinely sad and when he writes an upbeat song, he's genuinely happy. His ability to write catchy, accessible, true songs is astounding. Not to mention he's one of the greatest drummers of all-time, but it's overlooked by 99% of listeners who think that the extent of his drum skills is "In the Air Tonight." It's a shame that people only look at his solo output on the surface and just think "hurr durr I like Sussudio!" without seeing how reflective his songs really are. It also upsets me how people absolutely refuse to separate Phil Collins from Genesis, like they're still holding a grudge against Peter leaving the band. Just listen and appreciate Phil's work instead of bitching about how he "ruined Genesis" or "sold out" (see my point above).
