Watchmojo haven't heard of Soundgarden? - Metal_Treasure
To Watchmojo, they are considered the "third greatest grunge band", but they are not in the list. Yet they put Sonic Youth as the sixth best grunge band on their Top10 greatest grunge bands list but they are a honorable mention. That makes no sense. Sonic Youth is a good band but they should have not been on their. I also think that Soundgarden should take The White Stripes place. WatchMojo left out other great bands like Alice In Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, and many more bands - Powerfultekin

The clash is alterntive? I didn't know that! I thought they were punk! - RecklessGreed
They are punk and alternative. I personally picture them as punk the most, but I believe their alternativeness comes from their album "London Calling" in which they incorporate reggae, pop, and a ton of other genres you wouldn't expect from them. - HardRockSam
