Good pick, Baba - almost named that one myself. Peter Gabriel was a childhood idol of mine and I still find more to appreciate in his music today.
That's not baba. Capt. Adama is baba.
What the heck are you talking about? I'm me, not this Adama guy.

Addendum: Never mind. I know what you're talking about now.

And it's not me, okay? I AM NOT A MEMBER OF WORDFORGE. I don't even know what that board IS, really. So even if you see somebody over there calling himself Babaganoosh, it is NOT me. And Capt. Adama is not me.

Sitting in my Room. Ramones.

Supernaut was definetely underated, as was Vol 4. Many bands derive their sound from that album. Sleep & many stoner bands. Sabbath was the world's most hated band in the 70's. Tony said; Sabbath was a dirty word in the 70's.

Re: Underappreciated Tracks on Classic Albums

Nine Inch Nails - Last.

Broken is well-loved and remembered for Wish, Suck and Gave Up, not to mention the infamous Happiness in Slavery video. Last is one of the best rock(y) songs NIN have ever made and virtually everyone ignores it. Hell, it was released in 1992 and Last got played live for the first time ever in 2007!

Probably have to say the same about Getting Smaller from With Teeth too...

Re: Underappreciated Tracks on Classic Albums

I can. This may help. Sleep, St Vitus, & Electric Wizard. Stoner metal. Both Snowblind & St Vitus are tracks from Sabbath's Vol 4 album.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_(band)

Earache released its first Black Sabbath Tribute album, and Sleep contributed a cover of "Snowblind".

Saint Vitus another Sabbath-Vol 4 inspired band.

soon changed their name to Saint Vitus after the song "St. Vitus' Dance" by Black Sabbath.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_Wizard

Genre(s)Doom metal
Stoner metal


Cathedral yet another. Tony Iommi played on their cd Carnival Bizarre.

"Hand of Doom" and "Electric Funeral" from Paranoid by Black Sabbath.

I love those songs, but they always get overshadowed by "War Pigs", "Paranoid", and "Iron Man".

Re: Underappreciated Tracks on Classic Albums

In some ways "'39" by Queen. It is a very appreciated song by Queen fanatics but doesn't seem to get enough love from the casual listeners.

Hand of Doom is my absolute favourite Sabbath song.

Actually the hell with underrated songs. Paranoid is one of the most overrated...

And now for possibly one of the most underappreciated songs of all time:

Trip Through Your Wires from The Joshua Tree - It sounds slightly out of place on the album, and it took forever for it to grow on me, but I love it.
Good pick. The Joshua Tree would be on my short-list for the best album ever. I also think the One Tree Hill on that album is sort an overlooked gem.

My pick for an underappreciated/overlooked song: Train in Vain on the London Calling album by The Clash. IIRC, not even listed on the album jacket, but just there at the end of one of the LP sides. More pop-oriented than the rest of the album, but a really spiffy piece of music.

Re: Underappreciated Tracks on Classic Albums

In Every Dream Home a Heartache. Roxy Music from For Your Pleasure album.a love song to an inflatable doll, very funny. Fans like it, dunno exactly how the aural public at large reacted to it. A classic methinks.

52 girls by B-52's another. Who would've guessed that from a Sabfreak like me eh?

Can I nominate 'Christie Lee' from Billy Joel's 'An Innocent Man'? He released half the album as singles, but somehow missed that song. The lyrics are clever and the music delightfully lustful.

Good song. Continuing with Billy, I would put "Summer, Highland Falls" from Turnstiles and "Vienna" from The Stranger on that list. Not even close to the most well known songs on either album, yet my favorites on each respective album.
