Top 5 Most Underrated Songs By Well-known Sputnik Bands

Almost everyone on the site has heard of the so-called "Sputnik bands." And if you haven't, stop getting so much exercise and/or pussy and spend a little more time on here. But anyway: for those uneducated, "Sputnik bands" are artists that the Sputnik community collectively faps over; and with good reason (most of the time). However, as with any band, there are diamonds in the rough, and this list was created for the purpose of exposing those.
5Thrice
Blur

Album: Major/Minor ::: One of the middle cuts off Thrice's most recent release, "Blur" is one of the heaviest tracks on the album but also one of my personal favourites. Yet, with all the talk of the new album, this song seems to be almost never mentioned. Sure, "Anthology" and "Words In The Water" are both amazing (as are many other tracks on the album,) but where's the love for "Blur?"
4Converge
Wretched World

Album: Axe To Fall ::: Converge are known for non-stop heaviness, and maybe that's why the final track on their 2008 effort "Axe To Fall" seems to have gone virtually unnoticed. A 7-minute track that builds and builds until reaching an epic conclusion, "Wretched World" is a fantastic track that does not get nearly as much attention as it deserves; it closes the album perfectly, and also happens to be a damn good song in the process.
3Opeth
The Twilight Is My Robe

Album: Orchid ::: Opeth's first release sent shockwaves through the metal community when it was released, but little did anyone know that that was just the tip of the iceberg. With its raw production, (mostly) lengthy songs, and complex arrangements, "Orchid" was a phenomenal album, but is these days somewhat overshadowed by the band's later works. Thus, this 11-minute track from the middle of the album doesn't get much mention around here (or many places which talk about Opeth,) even though it is a stellar track from beginning to end. A live version of this would make me flip out (in a good way).
2Cynic
The Unknown Guest

Album: Traced In Air ::: "Traced In Air" (2008's record of the year, might I add) was, by everyone's account, amazing. "The Unknown Guest", despite being part of this amazing album, never seems to get mentioned as much as the other songs on the album. But why not? Listen to it, and you'll see what I mean!
1Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Motherfucker=Redeemer (Part 2)

Album: Yanqui U.X.O. ::: Often regarded as GY!BE's weakest album (but still freaking incredible), Yanqui U.X.O.'s closing track "Motherfucker=Redeemer (Part 2)" is one of the best songs ever written by the band. Not containing a "crescendo" typical for the band, this song instead goes on basically full tilt for its 10-minute duration, and is one of the most amazing musical experiences you may ever have. And yet no one ever talks about it. Now that's underrated.
