Top 10 Most Underrated Rock Bands

1 2

6. Black Label Society

This heavy metal band had an awesome sound and some superb compositions when they started out. However, as their story progressed, their members seemed to move into other popular bans, one after and another, and their sound got lost in the mist. They had it in them though.


7. Soul Asylum

Although they had been around on the music scene, Soul Asylum made their first Billboard debut only in 1993 and their second and last in 1995. They have had the popular hits “Runaway Train” and “Misery” but no one seems to know anything else about them. Their albums however reveal a fresh sound and great numbers.


8. Gentle Giant

This was a progressive rock band from the UK in the seventies and their gigs were particularly known for the level of orchestration and complexity. They however slipped in between the cracks somewhere in their efforts to redefine popular music.


9. Toad the Wet Sprocket

Barring their odd name, everything about this American alt rock band is fabulous, except maybe the fact that they broke up in 1998 after being in the business for 12 years. Their best hits are ‘Walk on the ocean’ and ‘Fall Down’.


10. Collective Soul

Okay, so many of us have heard of this one, but how many know all of their numbers and swear by their name? Face it, this is one of those band that could have made it really big – but didn’t.
