Underrated: The Tubes

The Tubes: Underrated?

The Tubes are one of the workhorse bands of the 1980s (and late-'70s) who churned out a few hits, recorded a lot of great songs, were funny and amazingly creative, and rocked it live.  But it seems they never received the same mass love (or record sales) as their contemporaries (Huey Lewis & The News, The Cars, Journey).  Thus, our question: Are they underrated?  Take a look at the videos below, including a live concert from MTV in 1983, and let us know if you agree.
