    Well, probably none of us have ever heard of the MOST underrated band of all time. There are a lot of talented performers out there that never get a break and never become known to any of us. You would think that great talent would always be found by the masses, but that's just not the case. Sometimes it seems like some of the most untalented performers somehow hit it big, while the truly talented go unknown.

    One of the most unknown and underrated artist I ever saw was Graham Parker. He was the opening act for someone I saw(maybe Thin Lizzy) at the old Music Hall in the mid to late 70's. The guy was, and still is, damn talented. Kind of a cross between Elvis Costello and Van Morrison. He's sold a few records but nothing big.

    A band that is well known, and very much appreciated by the critics, but underrated by the average music listener, is Roxy Music. I've been a fan since the mid 70's, and I can tell you that their early albums are stunning, and are still enjoyable today. They could really rock hard in the early days, and I really liked Phil Manzanera's guitar work.

    Solid choices with Roxy and GP, he had a song on the MTV very early on with Temporary Beauty, IIRC.

    A few others;

    the Pretenders going off the 1st 2 Lp's, just scorching hot RnR.
    And Talk Talk for the last 2 Lp's which along with the 1st Slint record started Post Rock.

    Along these lines, if you haven't seen Searching for Sugar Man, you really need to watch it.

    I should have realized you would represent Minnesota the right way. Husker Du not only were great themselves, but had such a huge influence on so many others as well.

    cocteau twins. they kind of invented their own genre. i celebrate their entire catalogue.

    funkadelic is pretty well-known, but i still feel their greatness is severely underappreciated. imo, they should be in the conversation when it comes to the greatest american bands of all time.
