Boston - More Than A Feeling has got to be one of the most underrated songs of all time with one of the best riffs of all time! Hooks me in every time.



what exactly is your criteria for underrated here 🤔

The first one that came into my head was Lenny Kravitz - Are You Gonna Go My Way.

A bunch of the ones already mentioned are fantastic, but just to add some other hooks that I think are brilliant:

Iggy Pop - Bored
The Meters - Cissy Strut
RATM - Sleep Now In The Fire
Funkadelic - Hit It And Quit It
The Cure - Boys Don't Cry

As someone else said, it's merely scratching the surface and you could keep listing songs for hours...

The song hardly gets mentioned as a classic and the band especially I don't think gets the praise it deserves amongst other 70's bands imo

If a song is used in multiple advert campaigns on TV, I don't think it can be underrated

Well I don’t watch any commercial Television so I wouldn’t have a clue what advert you are on about.
