    In a Simply Rhyme, I mean, dear God, talk about checking all the boxes.

    I've always felt Little Guitars is criminally under rated as well.

    These are both excellent examples, too.

    Who's to blame for a song being 'underrated,' anyways? The band themselves? Record company? The general public's bad taste? Bad luck?

    The band themselves kind of ignored the song post 5150 tour, which I don't get. One of the best songs in their catalog.

    And the Top 3 underrated in concert by the band-wise: "5150," "Drop Dead Legs," and "Stay Frosty."

    That is one tune that should be a classic rock radio staple.

    IASR was simply not a radio hit. It has everything a die hard loves about VH but it has no hook chorus like EVERYBODY WANTS SOME or PANAMA-HA.

    The song barely has a chorus. Not sure what you're hearing.
