I may catch some flack for this but I'd say Duran Duran. Say what you will but they had some catchy tunes and Simon could really sing. I'm proud to say I've seen Duran Duran in concert.

Martin Sexton hands down.

Many mainstream musicians are fans of his but will not ask him to open for them live because they are afraid he will upstage them-and they are right.

The man can play guitar, and he has the voice of an angel. After seeing him live you feel like you've just completed an emotional/spiritual journey. Rock on brother.

Oh, and dfbennett, I loved Duran Duran live too.

Easy: Kelly Osbourne.

I think me and Little Steven are the only two people who like her album. People rip on it and I don't think they've ever heard it. It's actually pretty good! Great sound, great songs.

Mozart underrated? I don't see that. Maybe underappreciated in the current generation.

I agree about Olivia Newton-John.

I would like to add Nancy Sinatra.

I would add Dolly Parton. Mostly in regards to my generation (gen y). They don't realize how talented of a song writer she is. Jolene is a great freakin' song. It's probably difficult for people to look past her...assets.

I don't know if she would be underrated, because ther would need to be people who actually know she released an album. Milla Jovovich's The divine comedy is a cool album imo.

Anyone agree? Disagree?

Elysian Fields (with Jennifer Charles, not the death metal band of the same name)
Duran Duran
Sneaker Pimps (the current incarnation with the male lead singer...way better than with the female singer of old when they got popular)

Most of these are good pics Josh. My pic would be Buffalo Tom. These guys definately deserved more airplay. Oh well, I have all of their albums and Bill Janovitz is still putting out quality music
