The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Lonerism - Tame Impala
42Absolution - Muse
43Wasting Light - Foo Fighters
44Unplugged - Nirvana
45Hail to the Thief - Radiohead
46The Colour and the Shape - Foo Fighters
47A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
48Blood Sugar Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers' best album, probably the best album they ever going to make.

49X&Y - Coldplay

Should be way higher! Absolutely incredible album from start to finish. Every song is great and the band really shows what they are capable of. The lyrics are also immeasurable.

50White Pony - Deftones

I'm not sure if this album is among the best alternative albums of all time, but it's really good and a lot better than a lot of the albums on this list. - Imreallyboredrightnow

51Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

This is not alternative it is progressive

This isn't an alternative album guys.

52Fallen - Evanescence
53Meteora - Linkin Park

I prefer this to hybrid theory, there I said it! This album captures everything I love about Linkin Park, I don't what the hell happened to them after they released New Divide with A Thousand Suns & Living Things but that's not the linkin park I know, Meteora is amazing! So many of the songs are underrated such as figure.09 and lying from you and hit the floor! One of my top 3 albums ever! Love It and deserves to be in the top 10 along with Hybrid Theory!

54Pinkerton - WeezerV1 Comment
55By the Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers
56London Calling - The Clash
57Freedom of Choice - Devo
58Bleed American - Jimmy Eat World
5921st Century Breakdown - Green Day
60Morning View - Incubus

I don't understand how these guys aren't on any of these lists...
