5 Underrated Bands

5 amazing bands that are drastically underrated.
1Bash and Pop

Tommy Stinson's first band after the Replacements. It felt like a natural progression from where the band left off with mature complex song writing and a great production value. It also has a raw edge and burning energy harkening back to the Mats' early day with Bob.
2The Queers

A criminally overlooked punk band. The Queers are known for immature lyrics and simple short songs. And while they have these in abundance they also have some of the most damn catchy pop punk tunes ever written.
3King Diamond

While maybe less underrated than overlooked, King Diamond is one of the greatest and most unique metal acts of all time. Taking inspiration from the likes of Alice Cooper and David Bowie, Diamond combined theatrical stage shows with engrossing concept albums. Guitarist Andy LaRocque constantly delivers on every album as well as King's signature high pitched falsetto howl.
4The Distillers

One of the few female fronted punk bands to ever make it (arguably) big. The Distillers wrote tight no bullsh#t punk rock with attitude to spare. They had a hard edge but also instilled a sense of melody into all of their work.
5Scars on Broadway

Another side project, Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan of S.O.A.D only made one album together after the break up of System. It combined many elements of S.O.A.D but instead of biting schizophrenic metal it seems very more focused rock. More techno elements are present than their previous work as well, but Daron manages to channel his explosive energy into a well crafted album with elements from all genres of music.
