Can't believe on a Palace fans' site nobody has mentioned the Dave Clark Five!
We all still sing their hit single every Saturday, 56 years after it was released...
But underrated or overrated? - I'm not saying.

The real question here is what niche bands do you like and what popular acts leave you cold. Because often, the niche bands are wilfully niche and eschew common denominator music.

There's an awful lot of Beetles music that I'd say hasn't stood the test of time. Same for Michael Jackson, U2, Elvis. There are loads and they gain popularity because a music executive sees dollars..

Among more niche acts, I love a lot of Nick Cave records. Perhaps he's not so niche? I dunno.

Got to see him live for the first time a couple of years ago and him and the band were incredible.

His latest album is a melancholic masterpiece. A sombre but beautiful homage to his son. Well worth a listen but it's not one for all occasions.

Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.
