    Underrated - Big Star

    They put out two of the best albums of the 70s, yet most people haven't even heard of them. Poor handling by their record company left them in obscurity until they were rediscovered in the early 80's, influencing such bands as REM and the Replacements.

    Overrated - The Rolling Stones

    Don't get me wrong. They have some great tunes; but overall, their catalog is pretty spotty. Other than Some Girls, the rest of their albums aren't too consistent. Just my opinion, of course. Nothing personal, Stones fanatics.

    For underrated I'll go with Clutch. I feel like I'm the only person on Earth to know about these folks:

    Overrated - Paul Simon (solo)

    Sorry. I love Simon and Garfunkel, but with a few exceptions, Simon's solo career just does not interest me. Not even Graceland.
