Top 20 Underrated Songs of 2013: Awesome Songs You May Have Missed During the Year

Welcome music lovers to Music Trajectory’s list of the top 20 underrated songs of 2013 in rock, alternative and indie genres. The songs on this list are indeed awesome but may have gone largely unnoticed due to a lack of mainstream rock/alternative radio support, not charting well on Billboard, or perhaps being released as a 2nd single and not catching on with fans, etc. A few of these songs made it on to my Best 20 Songs of 2013: Editor’s Choice list but most are exclusive to this list. Give them a shot and hopefully you will discover some awesome songs you might have missed in 2013!
