    Is this actually a list of the most unknown bands? In which case: Alliota, Haynes and Jeremiah. Find the song Lakeshore Drive. Hey, way back when I liked it.

    I came in to say XTC. Freaking brilliant. English Settlement changed the way I heard music.
    I would add Kate Bush too. So far ahead of her time.

    Hmmm..

    While I like their stuff there's only one original guy left and they took a break... They've always been the darlings of critics too....

    +1, besides being underrated I think they were also under-exposed, under-played. "The greatest little bar band you never heard of...".:)

    Hundred reasons, brilliant live band, but sadly didnt translate to albums well. Saw them four times and they just got better.
