What the HELL! Janes Addiction, in terms of influence on the music industry as a whole, and quality of music, completely crushes all the competition here! They did more for the music industry than any other group in history, oh ya and they music is AWESOME! I am a huge alternative fan and I have never heard of about half of the bands before Janes Addiction on this list. This is the order it should be. 1. Janes Addiction 2. Nirvana 3. Green day. Not just because their music is amazing, but because they have had more influence on the genre than any other group, excluding R.E.M..
#75 is a travesty for this band. No one ever sounded remotely like them before or since, despite many attempts, and many of the bands above them on this list owe their popularity to the doors this band opened.
3 days is the greatest song since stairway to heaven. They started lollapalooza, changed the entire recording industry before nirvana was even out of the garage. Eric Avery is GOD and the entire music industry agrees

wanna listen romantic songs and sweet songs
then do listen to this band specially the song hey there delilah!
some more songs like a lonely september, body parts!,
In my opinion Plain White T's should be one of the best alternative rock bands of all time, maybe I'm crazy, but if you listen to all of their songs and albums you'll see how much awesome they're! PLAIN WHITE T'S ISN'T ONLY DELILAH!
I love blur, they're one of my favourite bands and I really hope they end up higher in this list sometime soon. Go Blur!
I grew up with disturbed! Definitely one of the best bands...
Down with the sickness
so many more:/
Ofc this should be the first on the list it's the best banned ever : )
Disturbed is simply amazing. They have such a unique sound and their lyrics actually mean something. 'Another Way to Die' actually surprised me because I've never really heard of a rock/alt band caring about something like the earth. I love them.
