I will support you in there until you in the top table in this competition, you are amazing band and good singer in the world, you must be the winner and you are is awake, please don't tell me that I'm the only one that vulnerable impossible

Amazing band with great music. They're music is heartfelt and so are their songs.

No. This band is amazing and definitely should be in the top 15. Some people just don't know music anymore. Smh.

204Modest Mouse

HOW is this band so low on the list? It should be within the top 50 at LEAST. Their sound is an example of what alternative IS to me. Vote! - mg296

This band should be number 1 and they're not even on this list. Well, they are now but they weren't before. I think.

205Taking Back Sunday

Lets give them some credit people, they have been making awesome alternative punk rock for 10 plus years. My all time favorite band.

MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE.
LOVE THESE GUYS..

LOL this has to be a joke hh #245 seriously? anyways I love the group! they are just A.M.A.Z.I.N.G I can't spend a day without listening to their songs

207GarbageGarbage is an American-Scottish alternative rock band formed in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1993. The group consists of Scottish musician Shirley Manson and American musicians Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig.

They are amazing. Album after album of songs of such consistent quality. Their newest album, strange little birds is, in my opinion, their best yet. Their songs are original but they keep that rock feel that makes them so great. Just listen to their music.

Garbage is the band that established alternative rock, fronted by iconic Shirley Manson! Do I have to say more? For me the most talented rock singer ever. Thank you Shirley, you make my day, every day...

Simply, The purest ever alternative rock band, fronted by the charismatic Shirley Manson. Get to YouTube and listen to them... Shirley just rocks!

This low means this list is a joke

Their album "I love You" is amazing!

In love with the neighbourhood

210The PoliceThe Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For the majority of their history, the band consisted of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.

Wait a sec. NICKELBACK is higher than the police? The world is screwed up

Awesome songs from an awesome bassist and lead singer (Sting/Gordon Sumner), awesome drummer (Stewart Copeland) and an awesome guitarist (Andy Summers)

215Kongos

This band is relatively new, but hey deserve more recognition. Their only hit was Come With Me Now, which (in my opinion) is not their best song on their album. I hope in their new album, they get the credit they deserve.
