We’re saying that we think the song isn’t liked enough or rated highly enough probably based on how good we think the song is. It’s just a way of disagreeing with the majority view really.
But in overal you're right. Usually people think "for me personally it's great but others don't think so do I'm gonna call it underrated because they don't understand it" (same goes with overrated)
