It's hard to think of any American move in the past decade that doesn't have Born to be Wild in its soundtrack. Other than that, the group's songs are completely unknown.

I'm 17 but whatever, this is America. A couple of bands that I listen to from that era that I think are underrated are Ten Years After and Talking Heads. I really like Ten Years After's album Cricklewood Green; I never hear anything about them. The Talking Heads are just a great band, not exactly underrated but not really recognized for how great they really were. David Byrne is a genius, a god among mere men.

I think the original question was about, which little known/underrated bands do you remember.How about The Sons of Champlin & Cold Blood.I saw a warm up band for Hendrix in '68 called SoftMachine also GentleGiant(at a Tull concert).How about WetWillie? In '72 there was a warm up band for 10 Years After,they went by Leadon,Meisner,Frey&Henley,oh yeah,The Eagles.Not too well known,but excellent performance.In that same time frame there was a traveling band playing at a local college hang out,they were called Orleans.Another band that comes to mind , Skylark.Carla Bonoff is another one.Thats about all I can come up with.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band.

And an Australian band called The Angels (aka Angel City for international releases.) WAY ahead of their time.

Midnight Oil, also Australian.

Holy cow!! Manfred Mann! My dad had a couple of their albums back in the 70's (I'm 41 and my dad still rocks, lol) and I always listened to his stuff :)

A couple others I liked then, Toto (how can you forget the great work by the late Jeff Pocaro on it, especially with "Hold the Line")..man, that tune is almost timeless. Supertramp I liked too...theres a couple others I cant remember the names, as they were kind of not very well known. Of course, the stuff that radio was putting out I listened to over and over..someone mentioned Y&T. Man, what a great band. I still listen to them....and Thin Lizzy with John Sykes on guitar, geez, what a song writer he is...

I don't think they were very popular in the US, and certainly under-appreciated in their time. Ted McKenna is a fun drummer to listen to. In fact, I tend to like 'playful' drummers more than technical ones - Clem Burke, Pete Thomas, Jim Gordon, etc.

Head East "Never Been any Reason" was a great tune, great hook, that was there only big hit, right? That's the kind of tune that you hear coming home from a gig late at night and you just crank it up.

Clem had some cool punk-ish work going. My favorite track of his is "dreaming." The energy of the drum track is superb. I liked his sound too.

That song made it's way into Kevin Smiths latest "Zack and Miri."

Original question::Who's your favorite band from the 70's that was underrated or not as popular as the heavyweights from that time?

Then people have answers like Zeppelin, the who, Kiss, Yes,AC/DC, Bad Comapny??? Nice way to kill a thread. Yeah they were all way underrated. I guess threads like these eventually just become hey look who I remembered and have nothing to do with the original question. I guess it is a little vague but in no way were any of these bands underrated no matter where you live.

I agree with Montrose and will add the Raspberries, Eric carmen was a great rock singer.

Here is my list again.... amended. I did glaze over the word "underrated" by accident.

RUSH -- mercilessly slammed by critics and underrated in the 70's

Mountain -- only known for "Mississippi queen" but they could rock

Ram Jam -- Only known for "black Betty" but had a lot of talent

Styx-- bashed by critics for "bombastic arena rock" style.

Little feet

Gino Vanelli (prog pop?)-- not given as much due as deserved.

Vanilla Fudge-- Carmine/Fudge helped make Bonham/Zep.

Argent--

Molly Hatchet-- slammed by critics as "Skynard clone" They were/are much more edgy than that.

And yes Zep took a lot of crap from critics.

Only according to Carmine Appice, I never heard anyone else say this and it kind of pisses me off to see people throw it around. Is there any proof to this statement?

It at least seems to be plausibly corroborated in other bios.

Why are you worried that Bonzo wasn't entirely self-made? Everyone has influences.

Why should it bother you at all when someone mentions it? What do you know, and can prove that others don't know---or can you factually disprove Carmine's claims?

My problem with it is the fact Appice keeps spewing it. You would think that covering everyone's hits with Vanilla Fudge was enough but now he has to take credit for Zeppelin? I am sure Bonham heard Elvis play too but ya never hear anyone say how much Larry Londin made the Zeppelin sound and influenced Bonzo?

I know he had influences but this one gets used entirely too much.

Fair enough, he gets a lot of mileage from it. If it's true however, it's true.

To believe it or not, but is stated:

"Carmine Appice set the foundation for heavy drumming ... before Bonham,
before Ian Paice... before anyone else." - Rick Van Horn, 1999 Modern
Drummer magazine.
