Best Alternative Songs


The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Misery Business - Paramore

One of the best songs ever! Way too good to be 68th :/

This song doesn't deserve this spot.

102Feel Good Inc. - Gorillaz

Why aren't there any more Gorillaz songs on here?. Feel Good Inc. experiments many genres such as pop, rock, jazz, and rap and transitions seamlessly. Its vocals are expertly performed. It goes as part of a timeline. It's a good gateway song into alternative music. What's not to love about this?

Underrated on this list... Though it may be confusing it has a big message to it.

What this doing in 104, it was top in England at one point, it was the high point of an album that received platinum, Why is this so underrated? this is arguably my favorite song of all time.

103Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers

A great song by one of the greatest Alternative bands of all time. This song peaked at #1 on 13 of 16 international music charts. In the video the band poses for many "One Minute Sculptures" an idea from Austrian artist Erwin Wurm. - Paragor34

I don't understand why this song is way down at 65! It should at least be in the top 10! This song is amazing! All Red Hot Chili Peppers songs are the best! I love Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Evanescence, ALL ALTERNATIVE! But this song should so be at the top! It is the best Alternative Rock ever! Come on Music Luvers! This song is the best! Vote for Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers! I Love Dani California as well! Can't stop! Can't stop listening to it al all! LISTEN TO THIS PEOPLEZ

Can't stop listing to this track, deserve to be in top 15. - Stu21

This list is wrong just because this is at 65. what?!
