    Reading these I realise I don't know anything about music recorded after 1995.

    And I only have a passing familiarity with stuff from the decade before that.

    To think - I used to be so clued up .. :(

    Big Star
    The Replacements
    The Runaways
    Fleetwood Mac (over-appreciated for the wrong reasons, under-appreciated for albums such as Tusk)
    Jeffrey Dean Foster (look him up, you won't be disappointed)
    Roxy Music
    The Black Angels
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
    Bon Scott era AC/DC... no, sorry, Back in Black is not their best album
    The Troggs
    Blonde Redhead
    The Hives
    Adam Ant
    Tom Waits
    all local bands that deserve to be famous in place of the myriad of shitty bands both past and present that made it big

    ... I could go on and on. :)

    (obviously these are bands that are under-appreciated by "the mainstream")

    I agree that Grand Funk is underappreciated now, but in most of the 70s they were bigger than LedZep in the US.

    Others underappreciated now:

    Ten Years After
    Mott the Hoople
    The Stooges
    The Groundhogs

    A lot of groups copy these groups now since a generation of time to wait and copy and sound "new" again.
