    Are we talking mainstream underrated here? Cause in that case I'd say the entire genre of Goa Trance is underrated. However, within the genre, there is definitely a difference in fame, recognition, and critical acclaim between the DJ's.

    I guess if you're talking about mainstream underrated and artistic underrated I think Belgian artists have it toughest in general. Novastar, Hooverphonic and dEUS are great bands, but hugely underrated in every sense of the word.

    Little Richard. You know, James Brown, Elvis Presley, all of the Beatles, etc..

But you know, I never really hear people sitting around talking about how great he is, or famous organizations like Rolling Stone giving him much accolades.
    Agreed. I think that if you must say one person invented rock and roll (which I admit is a fool's errand) it would have to be Little Richard.

    Underrated:
    The Kinks
    The Hold Steady
    Faith No More
    Matthew Sweet
    Hanson
    Tsar - The one band I will flog until I cannot flog any more. Their lack of success astonishes me. It's my personal project to make them famous. If you like glam/punk/power pop, check them out:

    I do love Steely Dan. I guess they don't get a lot of glory, come to think of it.

    Like Faith No More, they are namechecked most by other musicians, then critics to an extent, and then the general public.

    I agree, I used to listen to their tapes religiously as a kid. They don't get a lot of attention though.

    Pearl Jam
    Maybe it's just because I'm from the Pacific northwest, but I always thought Pearl Jam was bordering on being overrated (though perhaps underrated in comparison to other grunge bands?).

    Yeah, I think you're right. I'm from the NW too, and they do get a lot of support up in those parts. But it seems most of the world considers them to be just a grunge band, while I think they've proven themselves to be quite a bit more.
