1American Idiot - Green Day

Green Day made punk popular (along with Blink-182 of course), and this album is AWESOME!

2Funeral - Arcade Fire
3Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys

Very decent debut album - Magnolia

4In Rainbows - RadioheadV1 Comment
5Kid A - Radiohead

Obvious answer here, beautiful album that pieces together so well... this is Radiohead at their finest. Not only that, but electronic music is what Thom Yorke wanted from Radiohead. - uweuan

It was between this, Is this it, Funeral and Elephant, but this needs to be at the top. I mean, guys, it's Kid A! - Donut

American Idiot? *facepalm* This is one of the greatest album of all time! (in my humble opinion)

6Is This It - The Strokes
7Songs for the Deaf - Queens of the Stone Age

Just Go With The Flow, No One Knows though. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

It rocks. That's all there is to it.

8Elephant - The White Stripes
9Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco

This album is just, WOW. Wilco is so underrated. This is an album everyone should have in their collection. Poor Places, Ashes of American Flags, Jesus etc.. I mean, Come On, this is just brilliant. Jeff Tweedy is a genius man.

One of the greatest Alternative Rock albums of the past decade.

10Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

Combine Mike's rap vocals with Chester's aggressive screams and you get a masterpiece. How is this not even in the top 5?
