Bands that don't/didn't get proper recognition today

I listened to the Jefferson Airplane anthology on the train today. I think they were great: unique; musical; melodic; and excellent musicianship. IMO the historical equal of several bands from that period that seem to get more accolades today (the Doors come to mind). Others?

I have always been a fan of some bands that get little recognition some that come to mind are:

Uriah Heep - simple but great songs, very good guitar tones

Big Star - I cannot say enough about these guys, excellent writing and playing great production, seriously timeless songs, unfortunately plagued by distribution problems

Good call with Big Star.:agree

The Hellecasters! Even thopugh not all of them played Fender stuff, there should be a picture of them on almost everything Fender makes. They are the epitome of the old school Fender sound, and style.

The Replacements
And here in the U.S. Paul Weller
Agreed. Love Paul Weller - Style Council was great, as have been most of his efforts.

More recently, I don't think Gin Blossoms gets the recognition they should.

Currently, The Hold Steady don't get much respect.

From the USA although they have always been critically acclaimed I don't think 70's Little Feat with Lowell George got the public recognition they deserved. From the UK the Scottish band Stone the Crows had it all, a great singer in Maggie Bell and a great lead guitar in Les Harvey the young brother of Alex Harvey. Unfortunately Les got electrocuted on stage when his guitar shorted on a mic stand and the band broke up but all the remaining members became successful in their later careers.
