Forgive me if this is a topic that's overdone, but I think this could be fun. What is one (or more than one) artist/band you think should be bigger than they currently are?

Mine would be Ghosts of Jupiter. They have a Light Show at the Museum of Science in Boston and rock harder than most bands I've ever seen. Yet, for some reason, no one really knows them. (For those interested, here's a vid of their self-titled song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jfcpRUYND4)

The Honeydogs - quality song writing good harmonies. Even though I like the lead vocals me thinks it turns some off.
Three Hour Tour - Good hard rocking Beatle influenced band.
Fastball - I love these guys , great melodies/harmonies, great tunes.

Did they sing that song that had the line "where were they going without even knowing the way?"

B. Cooper says:
Yeah. "The Way" was one of their big songs.

My sister and i actually woke up once and couldn't find our parents. they were at a party in the apartment complex. that's what i think of when i hear that song.

Blitzen Trapper
Two Cow Garage
The Avett Brothers
Lucero
Son Volt

Love all three of those, Groucho!

Let's add The Blasters, Del-Lords and Gear Daddies to that list.

Past: Weather Report
Current: Tame Impala

Overall, I think the most underappreciated eras for rock and pop would be 1970-75 and 1980-85.

Add Dave Alvin right behind The Blasters.

Vivazappa is right,
Los Lobos is the greatest American rock band on the road today and they should be packing stadiums but if they were that popular there is no way I could score a $25.00 ticket and sit in the 7th row (dead center) and watch em' ever again. This band made: "Kiko" and is there a better record?

Curve - Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia put out some very good music in the 90s. Toni's voice used to soar above the droning guitars. Oh, and she was very attractive, as well. Loved that band.

I'll have to back the mentions of LOS LOBOS -- for all the years that they've been around, all the great music that they've put out, and still not the audience that they deserve!

I wish Michael Schenker was more popular. He is such an underrated guitarist.

Like the Truckers too.

James McMurtry and the Heartless Bastards. James is the best songwriter this side of Dylan and Neil Young.
