The Underappreciated Band Appreciation Topic

In this topic we will pay homage to those bands/albums that kick much ass but no one seems to give a shit.

HUM - Downward is Heavenward

One of the best rock albums of the 90s, and no one gives a shit. Check it out. It's like Smashing Pumpkins meets Cake.

James - at least in America

Grant Lee Buffalo - One of the greatest American bands in the last 20 years

Midnight Oil - great political band that never really got the due

Ours - amazing live band, great albums and all I see is they get written off as Radiohead or Jeff Buckley rip offs

Sinead O'Connor - I think she alienated herself, but has one of the best voices, one of the most collaborating artists(U2, James, Willie Nelson, Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack, Moby, and much more) and had some great albums after her big break though that went unnoticed.

Kings of Leon - superb rock n roll band, 2 great albums, revered by the press and music critics but treated like Satans Spawn on here

Foo Fighters. Always known as some kind of 'MTV-rock' band or something. They're better than Nirvana, and Dave Grohl can write really good, catchy songs.

Yeah, for some reason the Foos don't seem to be ALL that popular... even in the US.

Anything by Soul Asylum. They were such an amazing live band who also put out some charming little albums(11 in all). Unfortunately Karl Mueller(bass player) passed away a few months ago. The band was set to release another album(first since 1997) but now it looks as though it may never come out.
