The Definitive Underated Thread

Recommended Posts

definitely. When you talk about Ozzy's guitarists, you immediately talk about Randy (who is great) and Zakk (also great) but not Jake (also great)

Ozzy (and the fans) wanted another 'Randy' and even though Jake did his best (and succeeded in my opinion), you just can't make everyone happy.

Jake is a phenomenal player. His work with 'Badlands' is definitely worth more than the price of admission. Jake is among my 'Top 5' favourite guitarists.

In this forum Blues music as a whole is underated, I believe. And from a woman's point of view- Janis Joplin in particular. She was much more of a blues artist than rock IMO, and Jimi's blues tend to be underated also.

I know what you mean. Futurist music (Industrial, Noise, EBM, New Wave, New Romantic, SynthPop) is also under-represented here...

I thought I'd dig this potato out of the Songfacts garden and mention a band that I'm very impressed with but never hear about. The following song by them, IMO, is nothing short of perfection. Progressive, tight and excellent harmony. Underrated is an understatement.

If you've never heard of Seether, it would be to your benefit to check them out, soon.

~Fine Again~

It seems like every day?s the same

and I?m left to discover on my own

It seems like everything is gray

and there?s no color to behold

They say it?s over and I?m fine again, yeah

Try to stay sober feels like I?m dying here

And I am aware now of how

everything?s gonna be fine one day

Too late, I?m in hell I am prepared now,

seems everyone?s gonna be fine

One day too late, just as well

I feel the dream in me expire

and there?s no one left to blame it on

I hear you label me a liar

?cause I can?t seem to get this through

You say it?s over, I can sigh again, yeah

Why try to stay sober when I?m dying here

And I am aware now of how

everything?s gonna be fine one day

Too late, I?m in hell

I am prepared now,

seems everyone?s gonna be fine

One day too late; just as well

And I?m not scared now.

I must assure you,

you?re never gonna get away

And I?m not scared now.

And I?m not scared now. No?

I am aware now of how

everything?s gonna be fine one day

Too late, I?m in hell

I am prepared now

seems everyone?s gonna be fine

One day too late, just as well

I am prepared now,

seems everything?s gonna be fine for me

For me; for myself.

For me, for me, for myself

For me, for me, for myself

Hey Muzik!

I really like Seether too. They sound an awful lot like Nirvana though, but that's okay 'cuz they do a good job at it anyway. I picked up 'Disclaimer' the day that I heard Fine Again, it's an excellent song. :coolio:

I suppose I'm just a *little* predictable, aren't I?

Anyway

Audioslave rocks!!!!

I'm gonna have to agree with you on the Seether and Audioslave, none of those pansy 'new rock' bands can touch 'em (hmmmm, should I pop in some Puddle Of Mudd or some Audioslave? Or, how about some 3 Doors Down or some Seether? Yeah, Seether and Audioslave could take any of 'em down)

Until Seether and Audioslave are on billboards, soup cans, slurpee cups and have an airport named after them then they will be considered underrated, by me at least. ::

Audioslave international airport has a nice ring to it

Looking through my old threads...how can anything be definitevely underrated? Ah well, here are the 6 most underrated Zeppelin tunes (if there is such a thing)

1. The Wanton Song

2. Hey Hey What Can I Do

3. Out on the Tiles

4. Celebration Day

5. Your Time is Gonna Come

6. Carouselambra

Thin Lizzie

Harlequin

Barenaked Ladies

I don't if Paul Simon because I have never heard anything about him but that might just be me. And the most critized when he shouldn't be would be Billy Joel but I don't know if that would fit in here either.

That's a valid point. But you never seem to hear it mentioned with the radio staples - Stairway, Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love, etc.

I think the whole of "Led Zeppelin III" is pretty underrated, with the exception of "Immigrant Song".
