    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 .. :(

    I think Squirrel Nut Zippers are pretty underrated.

    all local bands that deserve to be famous in place of the myriad of shitty bands both past and present that made it big

    (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:

    Stray
    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.
