The Kinks are definitley underrated I think. The only song a lot of people know is "You Really Got Me"...

The Velvet Underground & Nico which, arguably, is the best and most influetial album of the past 50 years only sold barely 300 000 records. So, they were definitely underrated in the 60's. But like I said, it has gotten better.

Another and that comes to my mind is Television. Perhaps not as groundbreaking or influential as VU, but definitely worth mentioning. Everybody should check out their debut, Marquee Moon. It's brilliant, genius.

EDIT: Oh, and 13th Floor Elevators. One of the first psychadelic rock bands. Sooo underrated.

The first band that came to my mind was the Guess Who. They really are a good band and had some good hits like American Women but of everyone who hears Lenny Kravits version no one thinks of the Guess Who. Some other bands have already been mentioned but i'll say them again like BTO, The Kinks, and also the James Gang

I take it not many of you are Canadian. The Guess Who are ****in' huge! The new Bachman-Cummings album is getting one hell of a lot of airplay.

And to add a few that probably haven't been mentioned, Arlo Guthrie, Donovan, Otis Redding, Booker T. and the MGs, Chilliwack, J.J. Cale, The Mamas and the Papas, Billy Preston and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

I adore them! I really don't know why they are labeled as punk though, they are hardly punk musicians, they are far more talented and don't do your usual punk songs.

I would also like to mention The Zombies, their most known album, Odessey & Oracle is my third favourite sixties album behind Revolver and Abbey Road. That album is incredible, and a lot of I know who are even in to sixties music have no clue who they are. They deserve a lot more recognition.

I also don't think Syd Barrett and early Pink Floyd get enough recognition. The Piper at the Gates of Dawn again, is an album that I love, and not that many other people know, but loads of people know Dark Side of the Moon etc.

Public Image Ltd., John Lydon's other project, in my opinion, were far, far better than The Sex Pistols.

I second that. More refined and melodical than many other proto-punk outfits! I'd also recommend their second album titled Adventure as well as Tom Verlaine's solo projects, for instance, Flash Light.

I'd love to, but around here, there isn't any record shops and I can't find it in HMV, and I've got no way of buying off the internet (no credit or bank card). I'm having the same problem with Neutral Milk Hotel's albums aswell, I've heard a few of their songs and I want the album. But that's for another thread.
