So Pit who do you think is the most under rated band in history? I think its Blue Öyster Cult because they have some really good riffs and the guitar is really amazing but they have like 3 hits. Who do you think the most under rated band is?

Probably ones we've heard off very few times because they're underrated which means they get less attention from most people.
My meh gear:
ESP LTD MH-400NT
Peavey Raptor Plus EXP
Digitech RP90
Digitech Bad Monkey
Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi (WTS)
Crate GT15 (SHIT)

GAS:
Peavey 6505 112 combo
MXR 10-band EQ
Ibanez TS-9
Boss HR-2
Compressor (open to suggestions)

BOC is awesome. Buck Dharma is an awesome guitar player, idk why they arent more popular past the SNL skit and Dont fear the Reaper. I think Kaki King is under-rated, b/c she is an awesome fingerstyle guitar player, and her songs are sooo good.

EDIT: One of my personal favorites, Dance Gavin Dance, is very under-rated. Even tho the singer has changed, Downtown Battle Mountain is an awesome CD. I love their instrumental section, especially the guitar and drums. The old singer, Johnny craig, has such a great voice and sounds pretty unique.

Good call for Blue Oyster Cult. I would say Rainbow. They have a lot of good stuff, but nobody really knows who they are.

Iron Butterfly
they were so ahead of there time but they have other good songs besides the obvious In-a-gadda-da-vida.
Erik Braunn is phenomenal guitarist.
Lee Dorman is a god at the bass
Ron Bushy is amazing at the drums
Doug Ingel has a great voice and is a awesome keyboardist.

Wintersun?

Granted, a lot of the metalheads I know love 'em. But they need more recognition, IMO.

And yeah, good call on BOC.

Blue Oyster Cult is an awesome band and i agree they r underrated. I would say that bands like 311, Theory of a Deadman,.38 Special, Black Stone Cherry (especially Black Stone Cherry), and Skindred, (to name a few) are also underrated. But that is in my opinion.

I have to disagree with the part about drowning pool because step up is on all the NFL street games so people know of them they just dont relize it

Novembre. They're a really great band from Italy, definitely in my top five favorite bands. I say they're underrated because no one I know aside from my brother(who got me into the band) and his friends have ever heard of them.

The Beatles.


Are you an idiot? The Beatles are one of the most OVERrated bands of all time. Them and Zepplin top the list of overrated bands.
