Been on the site a long time, found so much great music, and realized I just hit 1500 ratings. List is ralbums that rrare great rrbut underrated, in that they have under 10 ratings and more people rshould hear them.
1Future Virgins
Late Republic


Punk/pop-punk. Really underrated band, both their albums are incredibly consistent and they seem to be getting better. "Cheap Seats": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEELh0P9C98
2The City on Film
In Formal Introduction


Solo project from Braid vocalist Bob Nanna. "For Holly": http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=NqltGmPC_5Q
3Bent Outta Shape
Stray Dog Town


This is a sweet album, just a great straight up punk rock/rocknroll album with vocals kinda reminiscent of The Replacements. "I Don't Know" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JIJFyg5Wlk
4Business Models
Room


Pete from Algernon Cadwallader is in this band and it's an really solid listen front to back. Available for free download at their bandcamp https://businessmodels.bandcamp.com/
5Toys That Kill
The Citizen Abortion


I know there's a few here who love "Fambly 42" (rightfully so, it's their best and an awesome album), but their debut is pretty awesome as well. "Amphetamine St" http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=GprTvRi6_wA
6The Underground Railroad to Candyland
Bird Roughs


Todd from Toys that Kill's other band, more rockabilly/surf rock-ish but just as awesome. "Yuppie Hip Hop Ad" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bxGdSWFmFw
7Agent
Awake in their World


Don't even know if this band is still around anymore but this EP is a really good short burst of pop punk. "Tough Lake, Mr. Meunster" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPLW2aORpKg
8Cayetana
Nervous Like Me


Debut LP and it rocks. Saw them open for the Menzingers earlier this year and they were really good. "Mountain Kids" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ukY8dgiCCc
9Shotgun Jimmie
Transistor Sister


Canadian singer/songwriter who makes really catchy indie rock. "Suzy" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXL2hPgNLh0
10Bangers
Crazy Fucking Dreams


Punk band from the UK, really dig their sound, simple but effective http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=rFW6g5j0xlw
11Grabass Charlestons
Ask Mark Twain


Another solid punk band that doesn't seem to be too well known, at least not on here. "Best in Shitty" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9XG2iZiOfU
12Hayden
Skyscraper National Park


Another under appreciated Canadian singer/songwriter. His earlier stuff is more alt rock, but I prefer his more mellow/relaxing side. "Dynamite Walls" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bu8_-ncqck
13Fresh Coats
A Train Wreck Named Desire


Really short 8 song album (or ep?) that is just awesome. Pretty sure one of the guys from Get Bent is in this band. "This Summer is Going to be Awesome" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjeLSBlmSVU Whole thing's abailable for free on ifyoumakeit.com
14David Dondero
The Transient


First saw this dude open for Against Me! in 2007 and immediately liked him. Makes some very good folk/rock music. "The Stars are my Chandelier" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkcN1O6dhkM
15State Route 522
Retrospective


90s emo/indie rock band whose vocalist went on to sing with Sharks Keep Moving and Minus the Bear. "1910" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SU_M3pNbkcs
16NONA
Through the Head


Just recently broke up but their one album is a really solid indie rock/pop punk/whatever album. Also the same drummer as Spraynard. "Dead to You" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnQor46Sc1U
17The Ambulars
Dreamers Asleep at the Wheel


Randomly downloaded this while browsing ifyoumakeit's catalogue and I'm glad. Nothing mind blowing but a solid album worth downloading, and hey it's free. https://theambulars.bandcamp.com/
18J Church
Nostalgic for Nothing


Awesome and prolific 90s pop punk band, rip Lance Hahn. "Nostalgic for Nothing" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_shk9mqNGuA
19Kind of Like Spitting
In the Red


Found out bout this guy when I see him open for AJJ in 2012 and was impressed. "Sheriff Ochs" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoGM9kJ-c9w

Deep Stationary

Midwest Nothing


good stuff. "Double or Nothing" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nKcea_L0x8

Fix My Brain


Seriously one of the better pop punk albums I've heard. "Fix My Brain" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdXLOkzfsRM
24Peeple Watchin
Somethin Ta Tell Ya


This is good. I feel my descriptions getting redundant. "95" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=- SMK-uKCL9c
25Leatherface
Minx


"Mush" is their best but this is worth a listen too. "Wallflower" http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=9t_dTTzDxp8&spfreload=1
