Lilys, Stiltskin (both had songs featured on Levi's adverts), Spin Doctors.#

The Byrds , The Doors - both highly critically rated but not known enough by the mainstream.

Animals As Leaders, Machinae Supremacy, Enslaved, Watchtower (hell anything with Ron Jarzombek), Heathen, Insomnium (swedish death metal which doesn't suck and isn't from sweden, yes they're not exactly obscure but more people should know about them), Mercyful Fate/King Diamond (again same applies), Mr Bungle, Amplifier, and Quo Vadis.

WTH? They are absolutely massive even now
Considering someone put forth The Beatles I'm going to say Rush are only moderatly big.

Justice, absolutely phenomenal music.
New single out in April

Why on earth are The Strokes being mentioned. Everyone knows the Strokes... There are other fantastic indie bands like The Shins which not many know about though.

Black Tide

Skindred

Five Finger Death Punch

EDIT:

I'm sure there are loads more sort of unrecognised stuff on my mp3 but laziness permits me from searching. I will be checking out some of these bands mentioned though.

VU, CAN, Nick Drake, Pentangle, Love, Incredible String Band, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Fairport Convention, The Beatles...I could go on forever.

Oh, and any krautrock band, ever.
This.

Also, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, should have sparked a 60's revival or something, yet it never quite happened.

?? They were massive!


Laura Marling, The Stars, Tegan and Sara, Radical face, Beirut, Beck.

Ones that NEED to be brought back/be heard of more today: Free, Jeff Buckley, Neil Young

I know the last three were well known in their time, but not so much nowadays.
