Underrated, or underrated?
I got both of their albums for Christmas as an awesomely thoughtful gift from a sibling, use to listen to their mp3s a lot back in the day in highschool but had forgotten about 'em for, what, 10 years or something.
Really cool guitar tone, they're sort of like some awesome AFI-without-the-goth-vibe thing, or a more guitar-driven and less-lame Paramore. Who I hate, so not sure why I'm drawing the comparison (and Agent M kicks the shit out of Hayley), but it seems apt. Totally summer-vibe-y Offspring-buzz-saw-y pop-punk radness.
Really one of the better pop-punk bands on Kung-Fu back in the late-90s/early-2000s, never really got their due. Fuck me for forgetting 'em.

They were really good I saw them at Warped Tour 2005 one of the only good band's I discovered at Warped Tour
They are awesome and talented, but they don't seem like a really big and produced band. I saved all of their music and I learned Swimming Through Mollases solo on acoustic guitar which seems like a miracle since I still can't play a guitar.
I didn't like almost all of early Paramore. They seemed very minimalist, however I like some songs on their last album. I hope they will keep growing.

Sort of that Bad Religion/Social Distortion thing.
I should probably get into The Action Design. Not sure why I never checked them out after TB broke up. I'm sure they're a bit softer, and apparently have Metric-style electronic elements, but I like that band so maybe they're awesome.
Shit I hate just randomly forgetting cool music only to pick it up again alter and being all "the fuck was I thinking"? Like how I didn't bother checking out The Creepshow, then saw 'em at a Soundwave gig and had my mind exploded with the totally-rad melodic rockabilly bliss.
I noticed someone put their live DVD on youtube also
