* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/approachingnirvana Approaching Nirvana]]. Without a doubt, the best band (and by "band" we mean "two guys on YouTube who make music for fun") no one has heard of. Well, there music is beloved among the gaming community on YouTube, but totally unheard of elsewhere. Although ostensibly an electronic band, they also do instrumental music and a mix of both. Their songs range from upbeat to cool to beautiful to epic, but are always CrowningMusicOfAwesome incarnate.
* The Acro-Brats are an excellent punk band that most know from their song "Day Late Dollar Short," which is in ''VideoGame/RockBand''. They're quite talented and deserve a listen. Just look them up on Youtube.

* ProgressiveRock and HeavyMetal are two of the most maligned genres in music history. Thankfully, metal has earned belated respect, as critics finally realized it's not just sludgy dumbass noise. Progressive rock, however, is still DeaderthanDisco, generally considered the province of pompous Brits with too much money and too many egos. But for every example of Spinal Tap excess, you have great bands like King Crimson and Van der Graaf Generator. John Lydon, by the way, is a VDGG fan. Still think prog is unhip?

* By the standards of [[IdolSinger Idol Singers]] with connections to the Creator/DisneyChannel (although she doesn't record on a Disney-owned label), Creator/EmilyOsment may count. Since 2009, when she first started seriously pursuing a singing career, she's released a mini-LP, a full length CD and a number of songs for soundtracks, all of which have had relatively modest success compared to, say, the Hollywood Records-signed Music/MileyCyrus, Music/SelenaGomez or Music/TheJonasBrothers. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEJlyyyAlDE&ob=av2e Her]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1pjTRmGPhs&ob=av2e songs]] [[{{Earworm}} are ''insanely'' catchy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jauthmokKWk&ob=av2e and]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NOotunFktU well-written]], [[GenreRoulette in many different styles]], and she has a unique way of presenting her songs in music videos. Her full-length CD, the techno-dance-flavored ''Fight Or Flight'', was produced by Nellee Hooper and features songs co-written by Adam Schlesinger of Music/FountainsOfWayne. Osment is a very talented live performer with a low-key, but exciting live show. She also plays guitar, co-writes most of her music and has a very good singing voice. Many music fans and journalists not normally interested in TeenPop have enjoyed her music, she does have a following, but has yet to really catch on in the mainstream. Unfortunately, perhaps because she's signed to an AlternativeRock music label (Wind-Up Records, which signed Music/{{Evanescence}}) not known for promoting pop acts, and she has no Disney shows to cross-promote as of 2012, she winds up (no pun intended) under the radar.
* Euro-disco/{{synthpop}} duo Music/PetShopBoys are HUGE in Europe, specifically England, but have almost zero following in America, outside of gay dance clubs. They are the highest-selling duo IN HISTORY. ''Opportunities'' was the opening song for Beauty and the Geek. Their range of music is almost staggering and they've been around since 1981.

* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6mftPOyQX0 Castlevania song, Praying Hands]], from VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIBelmontsRevenge despite being AwesomeMusic in its own right, receives little or no attention from fans and Konami. In fact, most of the soundtrack for the game may qualify as songs that need more love.

* Johann Sebastian Bach's religious works, especially his cantatas and motets, are very obscure with the general public, in contrast with his secular music. While one is able to find recordings of parts of Bach's passions and the Mass in B Minor, and sometimes even chorale preludes in the music section of major stores, recordings of cantatas are almost nonexistent; no major store carries recordings of Bach's cantatas, and many of the available recordings are, by now, out of print. Indeed, the only accessible way to listen to a Bach cantata is through Youtube, which is filled with low-quality and occasionally incomplete CD rips and performed by unspecified conductors and orchestras. On top of that, the recordings are threatened by potential takedowns by various shadowy rightsholders from the obscure record labels that published the music. About the only people who have ready access to high-quality cantata recordings are scholars who study Bach's music.

* Giovanni Paisiello has undergone this for more than 200 years, so much that all that pops up about him now is that he wrote an opera titled ''TheBarberOfSeville'', popular at the time Rossini's opera was first presented. His music actually sounds superb and he deserves modern performances of his work.

* Since ''Choro Club'' are not that active from 2011 onwards, you can still listen to ''ko-ko-ya'', a trio or Shigeharu Sasago, the Choro Club guitarist, and his two female collaborators on violin and clarinet. Their music is more jazzy and less chaotic than Choro Club, but overall they are a nice band to drink coffee to. You may have heard their music in such anime series as Manga/IkokuMeiroNoCroisee and Manga/RistoranteParadiso, and if you recall the overall vintage atmosphere of both series, you may already guess what their music would sound like.

* Remember Music/ChoroClub, a band that made awesome, luscious soundtrack for the anime versions of Manga/{{Aria}} and Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou? Well, they are not your typical one-hit wonder. They have been there fron 1990, and released a lot of albums in their distinctive style. Too band they are not that popular even in Japan, so NoExportForYou galore. But then, one Japanese man [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtWVaODk6wbEWi750tq-3fA put a lot of their musiс on YouTube]], so now you can enjoy more of their collaborations with various Japanese and Brazilian singers, other instrumentalists and even a big orchestral album with Hattori Takayuki, the man behind some of the music in Manga/{{Slayers}}.

** A huge percentage of their fanbase is Polish, due to them making several songs about awesome badass deeds that Poland has accomplished, especially during WorldWarTwo. In the fandom, it's a RunningGag that 40:1 is the unofficial Polish national anthem. They also have a big German fanbase and a large Scandinavian fanbase. They aren't very famous in the Anglosphere. Fortunately, this is changing as they did their first ever tour to the United States in the summer of 2012.

* MachinaeSupremacy has a loyal underground following and positive critical reception to their studio albums.... but that's about it. They can't seem to gain any real significant fanbase and their record company, while supportive of their music, doesn't want to take a lot of risks with them. Because of this, they've never toured outside of Europe and only recently started touring outside ''northern'' Europe.
