Well, It's hard to choose since I like most of them but for now I'll go for these two.

Honorable mention for Graduation and Hachigatsu!! (That's Haruna's songs)

Yeah, I like those songs Love  Haruna should write more
Also, I think Runners high is pretty underrated

When was that? I can only find old live versions of Haruka on Youtube, from when Mami still had black hair.

I was kinda surprised that Haruka didn't make the cut for the SCANDAL BEST album.

I really like Haruka too. I consider that song underrated because it may be less popular to international listeners.

I also like Tokyo Skyscraper. It has a somewhat out of character disco beat, but the chorus is catchy and I love Tomo's disco bass! It might be considered an album filler track, but SCANDAL has consistently good songs and not many poor ones.

So Easy is also really good even if not a single or album cut.

To me, Queens are Trumps is Scandal's heaviest song. Also a mahogany guitar friendly tune.
I always wanted to see Mami do some shredding over Queens are Trumps with her Les Paul.

Based on youtube views, Image is pretty much underrated. I'm not sure if they're underrated but they should play Onegai Navigation and Runners high more often in concerts as those two songs rock on live version

Well, If it comes to Scandal, I don't think Youtube is a good source of their fame. They have so little views it really begs the question "Why?" Being the "Representative girl band" of Japan, they have little Youtube views compared to Bandmaid and Silent Siren.

Well, majority of the Scandal pv werent even available in most countries, so that plays a factor, where as to Band Maid and Silent Siren, they kept theirs very viewable for almost the whole world to see from the moment they uploaded it. But some of the Scandal live videos have exceptional views like up to a million views. Good ones are Burn live, Shoujo S(perfect world), and Standard (perfect world).  So now that their pvs are available to watch pratically world wide, its gonna be a while for the view count to go up.
With that being said, actually majority of Scandal vids have a lot of views over a million, like Awanai, Pin heel surfer, Doll, kagen no tsuki, etc. So its not like they barely have any views.

on topic lol
i think Place of Life is pretty underrated, I don't really remember them playing this very much, its a good song.
Love follows the same fate, I love the song but i haven't even heard if Scandal has played it much.
@libresses Yeah, I saw the Image view count and was very surprised WTF! , its definetly not underated and they played it almost every live show. not to mentioned its an awesome song.

Hmm? Image is underrated? I think it's their PV with the most views on youtube along with Shoujo S and Shunkan Sentimental and considering the latter two was used as an anime theme song, I think Image is in no way an underrated song. I'd say. Standard would be under that category. Not the album but that one lively song of Mamitasu.

hmm, well Image is a lower selling single according to Oricon (I guess you could put Pin Heel Surfer in that category, too) so from that sense it's underrated. It is one of my favorite songs, though, and a good intro to octave playing if you play guitar. The video is adorable as well.

I think Rock 'n Roll is underrated (I think someone said that, too).

Image may have not sell good but it's still popular, it was included on (by the fans themeselves)the recent best album SCANDAL. The whole album had songs based on popularity.

Seems like Anataga Mawaru is really underrated, since it's never really played in live recently. 
Onegai Navigation is underrated in my opinion too, it has been played in live quite a lot but doesn't seem like it's everyone's favorite, considering that it didn't make it to their best album released last year.

No doubt, both those songs rule. I love the way on Mawaru, Haruna and Tomomi trade off vocals, until Tomo kicks it in at the end and howls out that last verse. And it's fun to say mawaru!

^ A new live version would be awesome to see. And Mami would kill that guitar solo nowadays!

I'd say "Weather Report" is super underrated. It has such a nice reflective mood with the quiet guitars and vocal melodies. Almost depressing, but with a little positivity in the chorus parts. Goes perfectly with the lyrics. I don't think they have any other song with the same feeling.

Also, definitely "Pride" as far as singles go. Seems forgotten these days even though I considered at the same level as Shunkan Sentimental and Love Survive back then. Was kind of sad when it didn't make it onto the best album.

One song I've been listening to a lot lately is Switch. I love the vocals, especially when Haruna and Mami are singing together. It's getting to be one of my favorite slow songs, but nothing beats One Piece in that category.
