101Collective SoulCollective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia. Now based in Atlanta, the group consists of lead vocalist Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett.

They make the real alternative band. Have you heard their song, "when the water falls"? It's just amazing. They deserve to be in top ten. Else I decline the entire list

102Biffy Clyro

Exfellent, just wonderful and unique and if they stay on 101 there's really something wrong with these charts

103Theory of a DeadmanTheory of a Deadman is a rock band from Delta, British Columbia, Canada. Formed in 2001, the band is currently signed to Roadrunner Records as well as 604 Records.
105Hands Like Houses
106PlaceboPlacebo are an English alternative rock band, formed in London in 1994 by singer-guitarist Brian Molko and guitarist-bassist Stefan Olsdal.

Best of the best, I don't know why it wasn't here

107Billy TalentBilly Talent is a Canadian rock band from Mississauga, Ontario. They formed in 1993 with Benjamin Kowalewicz as the lead vocalist, Ian D'Sa on guitar, bassist Jon Gallant and drummer Aaron Solowoniuk.

What WHAT Why is Billy Talent on 98th?

Billy Talent are exceptional. Its embarrasing that half the bands in this list are not even Alternative E.G. korn, Disturbed, Nine Inch Nails.
