Talking Heads for me.
I don't think either of them are underrated per se TBH.
They've both received high praises, recognition, and accolades during their heyday....and actually still do to this day.
The cars were more Rock n Roll & Pop influenced, while the Heads were more eclectic, avant-garde and art house based.
Both were solid and pretty successful back in the new wave/punk era...and then into the post days of those genres.
But if I had to pick 1 of them, I'd be the Talking Heads simply because they were always more experimental.
Cars seemed more mainstream. If I read the song list from each of their “greatest hits” albums, I can recognize nearly every one of the cars songs. Maybe a couple from the talking heads. There might be one or two good ones that didn’t get any radio time.
Talking Heads easily.
Moving in stereo is an underrated song imo
Never understood what was so great about talking heads. They aint my cup o'tea
I think the Talking Heads got a lot of respect that the Cars never did. If it was not for The Cars being at the relative forefront of creative music videos I wonder if they would be largely forgotten.
Both great bands in my opinion.
It's the same as it ever was.
Neither are underrated. I like the Talking Heads more, but they get all the credit they deserve.
Neither are underrated. But comparatively, if you don't have the Talking Heads rated a lot higher than the Cars, you're underrating the Talking Heads jmo.
Mmm, Phoebe Cates....
Not a fan of the Talking Heads. Like more songs by the Cars than the Heads.
Heads are in the RRHOF...not sure about the Cars.
Heads influenced many...not sure about the Cars.
The Cars probably sold more music.
Bernie FUCKING Worrell was in the Heads.
Personally I like both, but care for the Heads a lot more.
This is one reason why, and only two of the Heads are involved in it:
To each his own. I like the Cars ok and I bought their first couple of albums. But they were a bit slick and mechanical for my tastes. The Talking Heads might be my favorite group from that first alternative era.
Neither group is underrated.
I'm just not a big fan of either really. I like the hits from Talking Heads (looking back, more songs than I realized), but only own the first CD. I have several Cars CDs, but they don't get much play. As a teenager in the 80's, I was all about hard rock and metal, not post-punk, pop, or however you want to classify these bands. I like them more from reminiscing about those times that MTV ruled my world essentially.
