    Cheap Trick is not in the R&R Hall of Fame, I would say that's pretty well as under-rated as it gets.

    crzygrl or whatever your name is above me said it all right there, a lot of people say Boston is great and that is still and understatement. Boston is the greatest band of all time, all of their song are AWESOME! Words can't even begin to describe how great they are oh man, I guess the people on here who didn't say Boston, only didn't say it because they thought it was just common knowledge, am I right or what?

    Brad Delp rest in peice my friend.

    A lot in the past... The Yardbirds (members included jimmy page, eric clapton and jeff beck) , Television (great 70s punk band), Gang of Four (a post-punk/new wave band from the late 70s)

    Tons of more in the present too....

  • Gotta be the Scorpions, they have like 30-something albums (or CDs now) but they have definitely been hard rock gods! There is a lot more than "Rock you like a hurricane"
