Type O Negative
The world continues to burn, propelling artists such as Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and La Bouche to the top of the charts. Meanwhile, some of the most brilliant artists sit silently in obscurity. Sometimes people discover them years later and bring them to light through covers, or a hip-hop artist incorporates samples of an overlooked piece of brilliance and gives a slight revitalization to the track.

Whether it's a painting, a sculpture or a song, everyone can agree that it's a true tragedy when an important work of art seems to be ignored by the general populace. It's depressing. Devastatingly sad. It can almost be as difficult as
"Unsuccessfully Coping with the Natural Beauty of Infidelity."

And with that, we are pleased to present Six of the Most Underrated Songs of All Time.

6. Type O Negative - "I Don't Want To Be Me"

Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the most commercially viable song by gothic warlords Type O Negative is by no chance one of the group's finest. This is a demented video featuring "that guy from the Ping-Pong movie," whose character plays dressup and convincingly channels pop-culture celebrities like Britney Spears, Eminem and Michael Jackson. By the end of the video, you will have firmly grasped the sense of humor of the band referred to as "The Drab Four."

5. Type O Negative - "Everyone I Love Is Dead"

World Coming Down, the 1999 album on which this track appears, is regarded as the band's most dirge-filled, painful release. Other tracks on the album include three ambient pieces ("Sinus," "Liver" and "Lung") which symbolize and ruminate on ways the band members may die. On "Everything Dies," vocalist Peter Steele sings about family members he has lost, and how one day he will also die.

Type O Negative had a sense of humor, but there was a genuinely depressive element to most of the band's work. The melodramatically titled "Everyone I Love Is Dead" is one of the most melancholy and catchy tunes that you can safely assume wasn't meant to be grim in a funny way. However, what is both grim and funny is the fact that Olive Garden advertisements play on YouTube before the track starts.
