How about the Red Hot Chili Peppers?

Anyone think they can fit into this category?

I don`t see how a band who have made nothing but bland rubbish for the past 15 years can be considered underrated personally.

Again I think you're completely wrong.

Thats why I said 'Personally'

I didn`t realise we`re giving out plaudits for churning out the same bland funk-lite stadium rock for nearly 2 decades , but there you go.

Pffft. They've been through many stages - definitely not homogenous music.

In chronological order:

Raw funk rock fuelled with punk attitude - S/T, Freaky Styley, Uplift Mofo Party Plan
More mature funk mixed in with other styles - Mother's Milk, BSSM
Psychedelic funk - One Hot Minute
Plain rock - Californication
More atmospheric rock - By the Way
Mixture - Stadium Arcadium

Now had you stopped there I would have agreed with you. My summery for the rest would be........
One Hot Minute - Yawnathon
Californication - One of the safest dullest middle of the road albums it`s ever been my misfortune to hear
By the Way - Had given up on them by this point , what i`d heard of it didn`t inspire confidence. People who like them much more than I ever did just confirmed what i`d thought.
Stadium Arcadium - Had to listen to this the whole way through at work once. I hope I never experience this ever again

IMO everything from S/T to BSSM is essentially what Seltzer said.

One Hot Minute - Some great musicianship especially in Fleas part, but the overall result is a very mixed one, its a good thing that this was the only album Navarro played on.

Californication - While this album clearly lacks the funk (save a few tracks) I think its a great record, oh well, call me a sucker for mellow rock if you will, I think this would have made a great swan song if they just stopped from here.

By The Way - Essentially, this is probably the weakest album they have ever done, they took what made Californication great and started turning it into their signature sound, which I really dont think was a great idea, after Californication they should have went straight back to the "funk-punk" sound, but whatever, who am I to decide what style of music a band should be playing? I still like some of the songs.

Statium Arcadium - I haven't actually heard the whole album, but from listening to the singles it really seems like I'm not missing much.
