233The Wombats

They might just be one of my favourite bands ever, alongside Coldplay and Foster the People. They are sort of electro-pop, alternative and a little grunge all mixed together! I love them so much and I love Coldplay, Foster the People and Ellie Goulding(who isn't really alternative).

No one has more killer songs per album other than The Wombats. They aren't very popular but they are an awesome alt band.

234The Smithereens
235The White Animals
236The Connells
237The CultThe Cult are a British rock band formed in 1983. Before settling on their current moniker in January 1984, the band performed under the names Southern Death Cult and Death Cult.

Great band too underrated. Listen to beyond good and evil a top album
