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


    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.


    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".

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    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...

    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.

    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?

    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.
