I cannot turn on the 80's station or New wave without hearing Howard Jones.
And that pisses me the hell off. 80's, I get. First Wave? Hell no. That guy makes me want to kill puppies. His crap is just as bad as what I hear on Hits 1. Never understood how his music was lumped in with the other bands listed in here.

You're just not a Sex Pistols fan and to top it, hate that Johnny Rotten went popish.

I agree.

I don't think most of these bands were underrated. Maybe they don't get played on radio much these days but college radio played the crap out of them while I was at LSU and it was all I listened to.

Recently saw the Smithereens, they play up this way all the time, they still sound great. Saw INXS with Berlin opening earlier this year. INXS sounds great but w/o Michael, they are basically the greatest INXS cover band around.

Just bought a Split Endz album along with the Alarmand The Pretenders last weekend. Found a great record store in Asbury Park that will be getting a lot of my money

Seven Mary Three's album American Standard is one of my all time favorites regardless of the decade.

It's no different from my hate of any other pop solo act. His music is not similar in any way to:
New Wave
Jangle Pop
College Rock
Alt. Rock
Power Pop
Shoegazer

Yet, he is played in amongst artists that do. He lawys has been. I hate him more than other pop acts because he is forced on me when I listen to the above stuff.

They didn't and Dusk is easily their best album.

Are The Sundays underrated? What qualifies as "underrated"?

I'm a fan of their first album. They only have three according to allmusic.

I would say no. I still hear three of their songs on Sirius. Harriet's voice is often given its proper credit.

A band the nobody, or somebody, or everybody knows and appreciates more than anybody or nobody.
