21Candlebox

Candlebox's first album alone beats all the other bands on this list, I however consider Candlebox grunge, they came out of Seattle and released their first album (self-titled) in 1993, not even a full year after the release of Stone Temple Pilots' Core and Alice in Chains' Dirt.

22REDRed is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

These guys, Decyfer Down, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Chevelle, and Thirty Seconds To Mars are my jam when it comes to post-grunge. - AngryByrd

Man what a band. Every song is a gem. I have each and every album of them!

Come on just listen to their songs Feed the machine and faceless you'll know why they should be #1

25LiveLive is an American rock band from York, Pennsylvania, composed of Chad Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer, Chad Gracey, and Chris Shinn. Live's original lead singer Ed Kowalczyk left the band in November 2009.

Throwing Copper is a great album but the rest isn't very good.

26Egypt Central

I think puddle of mudd and foo fighter should be in the top 2 but I mean come on this band should at lest be in the top 10 hell I think it needs to be in the top 5

First saw them when they opened for disturbed almost 10 years ago. Still remains my favorite band of all time!

27TraptTrapt is an American rock band that formed in Los Gatos, California in 1995, best known for their 2002 single "Headstrong".
28Matchbox 20

Matchbox 20 only used post-grunge only once on their first record Yourself or Someone Like You they're pretty much average, their two songs push and long day are pretty much post-grunge material but a little too much softpop or something they're not like Foo Fighters or breaking Benjamin or puddle of mudd or silverchair or smile empty soul or bush I still like them but only their first record Yourself or Someone Like You was the only post-grunge they used

My all time favorite music group. Matchbox 20 is simply amazing. Some of my favorite songs consists of; Overjoyed, Push, and Back 2 Good. I love this band so much, It should be rated number 1

Matchbox twenty is number two on my list. They are the second best band ever! Rob Thomas, his voice quality is amazing. He writes almost all his songs, and sounds just as perfect live as he does on the CD. Tabitha's Secret is also amazing because he sings in it. They are number three.

Matchbox twenty isn't even post grudge. The fact that their even on here makes them special

These guys are nu metal, not post-grunge.

30HoobastankHoobastank is an American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California with lead singer Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen.

I love this band, especially their song Let it out

This band is one of the last great post-grunge that are still semi popular, they deserve 1st place.

33The Pretty Reckless

One of the few post-grunge bands with actual musical talent and Taylor Momsen's voice is like a grunge-y voice from heaven--though she probably wouldn't appreciate that comparison much :D

34Finger Eleven
3512 Stones

12 stones has a touch of post grunge along with a Christian music feeling

37Royal BloodRoyal Blood are an English rock duo formed in Brighton, East Sussex, in 2013. The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in modern blues rock, hard rock, garage rock and psychedelic rock.

Relatively new post grunge duo, but their distorted bass and garage/blues rock sound definitely deserves a spot on this list.

38Everclear
39GarbageGarbage 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.

My favourite band of all time! Should be higher on the list, especially on the fact that Butch Vig produced nevermind.

40Flyleaf

I am disappointed, this isn't even on the list! My favorite band of all time!
