    A great band from Athens, GA (from the "Athens Era"). Barry Marler is very underrated (as a songwriter and guitarist). Great band....and one of the best albums from the late 80's.

    Cheers.

    The Mighty Groundhogs and the Siegal-Schwall (sp) band. I still have their albums. Time for a search and spin.

    funny The Good Rats at least around here are very well known and still played on the radio. i do know they are probably little known in other parts of the country though.

    always thought T-Ride had a unique thing going but they came out at the end of hair metal...

    Del Amitri--seriously. Far more than a one hit wonder. Although 90% of it was probably Currie and his songs.


    NRBQ has to be one of the best ever who never quite busted through.

    The Refreshments--the versions from either side of the pond really, but for original stuff the Arizona boys win out

    You beat me to it.

    Couple more:

    X
    Fehlfarben
    Capt. Beefheart and His Magic Band (sure, most people have heard of them, but when will "Frownland" replace "Star-Spangled Banner" as the US national anthem?)
    Flipper
    Wooze (well, they're new, so who knows?)

    When I first heard this band, I was blown away:

    And Bob Mould should have chased Sum 41 and Blink 182 with an axe for taking his formula and just breaking through with it:

    This band from the NY area always put on a great show:

    With all the declasse Zeppelin clones, I'm surprised this one didn't break bigger since they were hugely talented:

    I thought this band was going to have a 20 year career of hits since their one album was all killer:

    I thought this guy was going to be bigger than Maxwell and Lenny Kravitz:

    I remember Downtown Julie Brown of all people pimping this song and it kind of disappeared:

    I remember this song being played on the radio briefly in the 90s and it just burned in my brain:
