Mike Nesmith and The Monkees in general we’re pretty good for not being a real band.
Some of the 80s bands just got lumped in because it was the 80s. Unfairly I say, because there were some really good musicians and songwriters in there. Tears for Fears was already mentioned but they’d be at the top for me. Huey Lewis and the News and Duran Duran are also right there. All three had plenty of fame but not much of it was critical acclaim and I argue it should have been.
+1 for The Wildhearts.
Ginger Wildheart is such a prolific songwriter he's usually in 3 bands at the same time. He's from my neck of the woods along with bassist Danny McCormack.
And he replaced Jason from Jason & the Scorchers when he was ill. Another underrated band.
This guy should have been bigger. Completely accessible voice, songwriting, hooky music, boy-next-door looks, big drum sound, clean ringing guitars, etc.
The definition of underrated is something that has not received the merit, recognition or praise it deserves.
XTC and Roxy Music.
Bee Gees, Super Furry Animals, Crowded House.
I was just about to post Tears For Fears!
As a guitar player David Cassidy is underrated. He could play a mean guitar.
Went to see The Wildhearts (again) back in October, it was so good to see Danny back playing bass, almost brought a tear to my old eye. They are still on fire, not sure they are underrated though, 'under appreciated' maybe sadly.
Yeah a very different story here, especially The Jam ... Going Underground went straight to #1 on it's week of release, they were massive in the early 80's. Still very popular with middle aged men too.
Ugly Kid Joe still rocking
Scatterbrain called it quits after three albums, shame. ☮️
I saw Los Lobos in a bar. Huge!
+1 on Cry of Love. They were an awesome band and sounded great live. RIP Kelly Holland.
