341Band of Skulls

Good vocals, good band!

343Hands Like Houses
344I See Stars
345Trading Yesterday

They are amazing. They are awesome. They are legendary. They are epic. The list could go on!


Especially their album "Human Equation" is worth hearing. Decide yourself, but I think that Arjen Lucasen is one of the most talented musicians ever.


Best Alternative Band Ever, all songs are fantastic

348Wolf Parade
349New Order

Defined the genre decades before everyone else.

352Gym Class HeroesGym Class Heroes is an American rap rock-hip hop band from Geneva, New York, United States. The group formed in 1997 when Travie McCoy met drummer Matt McGinley during their high school gym class.

Definitely the top 20 of alternative bands!

354The Sisters of Mercy

At this rank - truly obvious sign that this list is worthless and made by people who dream of Britney Spears

A giant in this category - anyone who thinks otherwise is an oingo boingo superfan

One of the few bands that deserves to be at the top of this list - poor lost souls here

355The Jesus and Mary Chain

Clearly spoke to Jesus when I heard them


They are a new psychedelic alternative band. They have release one album so far (Sun Structures) and it is the best album of 2014 (so far).


Amazing alternative rock band consisting of a female singer called Orly and the musicians


Try to hear Indonesian music

359The Autumn Descent

Pretty cool alternative band!


So cool can't stop enjoying their sound.
