    NRBQ.

    I don't know that they are underrated, but certainly they are not as known as they should be.

    Sometimes I think the point of band names is to make their fans sound silly when they talk about them.

    You guys KNOW I'm going to do it ...

    www.thirtysecondstomars.com

    That'd be 30 Seconds to Mars; click and hear their new song. It's a good one.

    Re: Underrated Rock Bands

    Sinch is by far my favorite rock/metal band. I only know one other person who knows who they are.
    I'd also submit Strata (they have a lot of room to grow, but I've seen them live three times. They put on a great show.), Finger Eleven (seen them twice), Maktub (funk rock), Greenwheel (rock band from St. Louis, had a song nominated for a grammy), and Lennon Murphy. I just listened to a Coheed And Cambria album. They're pretty good, although their vocalists high pitched 80's-ish voice gets a on my nerves a bit. Slipknot and Mudvayne seem to have become somewhat respectable this year. Still a bit too much pointless screaming for my tastes, though.

    It is...in fact their entire catalog is great. Right now I am listening to their b-sides collection that just came out, and it's ace.
