I always thought of Television as a proto-punk band. And I agree that early Pink Floyd don't get enough recognition.

^ Oh, you're right about Television. However wouldn't say that early PF didn't get enough recognition. Many people worship Barretts' psychedeliс era...

Don't know really if I would count them as proto-punk. For me, proto punk bands are bands like The Velvet Underground and The Stooges. Some say Post-Punk, but that's just a misconception IMO. How could they be post-punk when they formed even before the Ramones? I think Art-Punk would be a pretty good description, but some say that that whole genre is just a misconception in itself.

Yeah, Television didn't really have a punk edge to their music, both lyrically and musically. I guess their early pre- Marquee Moon stuff with Hell on bass was a lot more raw and garagey and influenced a lot of the New York bands. But along with the Talking Heads they were more a kin to the new-wave and post-punk bands of the late 70's.

Still Television > most bands.

The one Band that dosen't get as much respect as it deserves is the Lynyrd Skynyrd Band. For one, people don't spell it right ( 4 Y's). All people think when they hear the name is Free Bird or Sweet Home Alabama, instead of their great repitoir of great songs such as Saturday Night Special, Gimme Three Steps, Gimme Back My Bullets, or even You Got That Right. If you just picked up any one of the original linup's albums and listen to it, you would be amazed by the songs that are on it

Oh yeah Traffic and Triumph too.

And Sweet and Styx.

Molly Hatchet. Not Just Flitirting with Disaster and Dreams I'll Never See. Just listen to their Greatest Hits.
Not to mention the cool artwork.

And what about Bad Company.

Billy Squier is pretty good. His Don't Say No album has a lot of good songs on it. He also had some other hits.

What about Eddie Money

I'm going to say Jefferson Airplane and The Allman Brothers Band. I know, they're both pretty big, but both are underrated in relation the their influence.

the kinks, ten years after and the yardbirds all were great bands, the kinks were well known but no one seems to give a rats ass about them, and the yardbirds were an early english blues band that are credited with the first psychodelic song ever(1966's happenings ten years time ago) hows that for under rated, not to mention having clapton , beck, and jimmy page at different stages in their lineup

I think King Crimson missed out on the whole popularity of prog rock, all while being the ones who were pushing the genre forward. It amuses me that people who love Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis and so on have never heard of King Crimson.

All those acts get plenty of love.
