    Most under rated band of all time

    Let the games begin!!

    I have to say Acid Bath, my favorite all time band. They have a cult following, but never made it big. Agents of Oblivion is a band that only released one album (200 or 2001 IIRC) and I think a lot of people on CF would dig it. Verbal Abuse would be high up on the list too. They are/were a cool punk rock band that I thought never got as much credit as they should have. They are probably my 2nd or 3rd favorite punk band. "Just an American Band" is such an amazing album.


    This is Ophion speaking.

    Re: Most under rated band of all time

    I find this exercise easier than "overrated bands," for some reason.

    Quick list. Varying degrees, for different reasons, subjective (as these lists always are) and in alpha order:

    • Blur
    • Cake
    • Camper Van Beethoven
    • The Cars
    • Creedence Clearwater Revival
    • Motorhead
    • Sloan
    • Sly and the Family Stone
    • War
    • The Zombies

    Yeah this thread will have a lot less arguing than the "over rated bands" thread I'm sure. Good list!! CCR was great. I have mixed feelings for Motorhead. I like them, but always thought of them as over rated. They really didn't have all that many great songs, especially for a band that has been around for as long as they have.


    I'll throw another band to the list. Floater from Oregon. Amazing band!

    I was iffy including Motorhead, but it always come to mind with this topic. My ears hear it (mostly) as straight-ahead radio pop, but with a sound and tempo that guarantees it can't possibly fit.

    “independent studies” have concluded that humans are actually genetically linked to sheep more so than primates. Baaaaa.

    I don't care for MSI all that much, but I do love Type O. Bloody Kisses is one of the best albums ever! Today is the 4 year anniversary of Peter Steele's death. RIP

    I'll throw out a couple of Iowa bands to this list: Painface, 35" Mudder, Index Case.

    And this band from Oregon called Floater. This is the heaviest song I have heard by them.

    Iowa bands that should be bigger than what they are/were:
    North of Grand,
    Odium,
    Devil with Cheese/Soul Sick,
    Dirty Little Rabbits

    ...and this list goes on & on.

    -CCR
    -Tower of Power
    -Ben Folds
    -Fleet Foxes

    Re: Most under rated band of all time

    Two bands that never really made it big when country rock was alive where the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Mason Profit. I wish I had a copy of NGDB dirt , silver and gold yet. BTW, Steve Martin used to play bango for the Dirt Band. It was pretty funny to see him on the Album with black hair.

    Any and all country music coming out of the state of Texas.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    The Move

    I have a hard time seeing legendary bands like Creedence being in any way, shape, or form underrated.
