    Default Most underrated musical act of all time?

    This is in response to the most overrated musical act of all time thread... and the purpose here is not to show off your knowledge of indy bands...

    I personally feel its the barenakes ladies, every member is very talented, their music is fun and can really make you think. They are pretty big (A couple of number 1s?) but they aren't considered on paar with several not so worthy bands. They would definitely deserve more of a spotlight if they got it!

    Barenaked Ladies are a good band, although I've only listened to a bit of their music.

    I also feel like Modest Mouse is a tad underrated. Don't get me wrong, they went kinda mainstream with 2004's "Float On," but that's about the only song any non-familiar listener can name.

    Modest Mouse was way big when I was in high school, but then again that was right around 2004. And I havent heard much of them since, they did kinda drop off.

    Let's see. . . Afghan Whigs, Urge Overkill, Split Enz/Crowded House, Galaxie 500/Luna, Deep Purple, Screaming Trees, (pretty critically lauded but) The Replacements, Chic, Badfinger, Big Star (same as Replacements), and a bunch more.

    The Cardigans should make an underrated list, too. Bettie Serveert, The Zombies, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Martin Sexton, lots more. Oh, and all of Michael Head's career. Pale Fountains, Shack, Michael Head & the Strands.

    I second Barenaked Ladies. I had their avatar for a bit if anyone can remember.

    Phish is a little overrated, but because they should be. There's some pure talent. Their best stuff is live because it is a lot of improv. which shows creativity. Their songs are diverse, and their sound is unique. In my opinion.

    Lady X- thank you for bringing up Ben Harper.
    I was just introduced to him not too long ago, which is surprising. Talk about soulful. He's so full of talent, and Ground on Down is probably one of his best song, in my opinion.

    Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is brilliant, and even though you hear a lot of them on the Oldies Stations now (sigh), they are still the essence of talent.

    The Dandy Warhols are a great mixture of alternative and chill out music. I don't think I've met a lot of people who actually know of them, but they are great.

    Frank Zappa. Enough said

    Tell me if you like their stuff.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
