    Definately Thin Lizzy, never got the recognition they deserved (especially in america).

    Fucking perfect OP, TS...
    Husker Du should've gotten the
    same attention as REM. Hell,
    even the Replacements-level
    recognition would've been nice.
    Husker Du is great. Power house
    of instrumentalists, too!

    My pick? Easily the Raincoats.

    Of all the Kurt Cobain-loved rock
    acts that people acknowledge as
    huge influences on the genre, few
    are less appreciated than the
    Raincoats(shout out the WIPERS
    though). They were pioneers for
    feminist rock bands, without actually
    even labeling themselves as such,
    as well as one of the first truly
    unique punk bands. They hardly
    knew how to play their instruments,
    which were either out of tune or
    broken most times. But they made
    it work & created some great tunes.

    In Australia they are only know for Boys are back in Town and in America for Whiskey in a Jar, mainly just because Metallica covered it. Really they should have taken supergroup status in their time.

    VH1 did a show on them, Metallica covered Thin Lizzy version of Whiskey in the Jar and won a Grammy for it, and Jailbreak, The Boys Are Back in Town, and Whiskey in the Jar can still be heard all the time on the radio. Still the amout of albums they put out and the bands they played with they don't get the credit they deserve. On a sidenote Phil was rockin the pornstache before anybody knew what it was.

    Florida band whose memory has almost entirely disappeared from public consciousness. Saigon Kick were a victim of bad timing. They got lumped in with the acoustic-balladeer-hair metal bands of the 90s (think Mr. Big and Extreme) that were killed off by grunge, which is a shame because they were anything but that and their sound was one of the most interesting and diverse of that era.

    And since @tru3f4n mentioned Tommy Bolin (major props for that btw); I'll toss in a former 80s guitar god who named his first band Teaser, played a tobacco-burst strat just like Bolin (it was later repainted solid white) and who then proceeded to drop off the face of the earth for a two decades. He reemerged two years ago when there was hardly anyone left who remembered who he was. He's since dropped off the face of the earth again...

    No the radio stations seem to just play the three I listed with Whiskey in the Jar having to be a request. Radio stations around here seem to just play songs the DJs like where it's mostly well known songs by well known bands where bands like The Steve Miller Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Cream, and Thin Lizzy are always playing second fiddle to CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Rolling Stones, and AC/DC.

    Jimmy Eat World - just never seemed to get over the top despite having killer songs. Thought they would get huge back in 2002ish with that song The Middle.

    I can recite all the lyrics for The Middle, but I don't think I've ever heard any other song by them.

    Came here to post Thin Lizzy. Phil Lynott is my personal favorite song writer. I mean the man had it all, songwriting skills, damn fine bassist and could sing like a mother fucker. We lost a musical legend when Phil died in 1986

    Sebadoh was a great band from
    the 90s. They were on Sub Pop,
    the same PNW label that many of
    the early grunge acts were a part
    of. It was founded by Lou Barlow,
    the bassist of Dinosaur Jr., another
    underrated rock act in their own right.

    @Jackonfire @Bobby Boulders
    @90srockfans



    Screaming Trees, another 90s
    rock outfit of the same vein. It's a
    shame to me that the genre & style
    got so big but so many great bands
    who were bringing some truly
    sophisticated song writing were left
    behind.




    You already got their best track
    up there(chartered trips).
    Here's another one that I enjoy:

    Grunge getting big wasn't the problem Nirvana and their fans were everybody wanted Nirvana, Nirvana, Nirvana so every fucking band got the same label and as soon as Kurt offed himself it was over. So you had bands like the Melvins, Tad, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, ect who got left behind mainly due to the fans only giving a shit about one band. Atleast Alice and Soundgarden was different enough to get other type of fans then school kids to like their music.

    I heard this on the radio very late one night . Way before my time , im guessing from the video it is 1970s but such a cool sounding song and i never heard any one mention it before even though old music always gets a revival by the younger generation if its cool enough and this song sounds so cool .
