Best of Broward / Palm Beach

Ten Most Underrated Artists of All Time

The recent catastrophe that was Robin Thicke's Paula album restores a degree of faith in humanity.

For a while, it was almost impossible to avoid this purveyor of misogynistic drivel clogging up the radio and television. The follow-up to last year's massive Blurred Lines sold a mere 24,000 copies in the United States, 530 in Britain, and only 54 in Australia.

So, as it seems the world has tuned out to Thicke, here are ten artists that were criminally underrated in their day, that deserved more airplay, sales, or critical attention than they were given.

Certainly more than Thicke deserved anyway. Sorry, Limp Bizkit is and will remain, shite.
