Most underrated band

Have we done this yet? I've completely forgotten and couldn't find it in a search.

Anyway, I'm going for The Damned.

The Damned? Underrated? Nah. They were brilliant. Utterly of a moment in time. First time I ever wore black lipstick, shorn my hippie waist-length hair and dyed it orange. Japan, now, that was an underrated band.

That's my point. The Damned were brilliant and didn't get the recognition they deserved. If you youtube Dave Vanian talking about it now there is a hint of bitterness in how they were sidelined in almost every interview. Having said that, he comes across as a top chap. Not as good as Captain Sensible who I would love to have a drink with.
