Top 10 Best Alternative Rock and Metal Bands of the 2000sThe 2000's had a lot of good Alternative Rock & Metal bands. However for this list I`m not including Punk Rock bands, Nu Metal bands, and Glam Rock bands. So basically no Green Day, Linkin Park, Paramore etc. I`m still including Evanescence 'cause Evanescene is not Nu Metal. Enjoy I guess.
The Top Ten
Say what you will about this band but songs like "Animal I Have Become", "Pain", "Never Too Late", "Just Like You", "Home", "Break", "The Good Life", "Riot", "I Hate Everything About You" etc. still hold up and this band got me into Alternative Rock in my opinion this band has more meaning then Linkin Park and Breaking Benjamin combined.
I love Radiohead. They haven't had a bad album since their debut. - Mumbizz01V 1 Comment
Favorite heavy metal band of 2000s and 2010s - zxm
More to the Alternative Metal side but their ok I guess.
Green Day has loads of wonderful songs that are on the brighter side of Alternative Rock and in the norm region of Punk music. Songs like Brain Stew, Basket Case, Welcome To Paradise and St. Jimmy reflect the boring child and teen life of band members Billy Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool
"Billie never ages" "Age? , I definitely age all the time, every single day"- Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day.
Billie doesn't age
@Powerfultekin : "Punk is a sub-genre of alternative" punk rock was originated before alternative. punk is not a sub-genre of alternative.alternative rock is a new form of punk rock which was originated in 80s.I mean derivative form.however alternative musicians were influenced by punk musicians - zxmV 1 Comment
And no Evanescence is not Nu Metal to me their more like Alternative Rock/ Metal.
Evanescence is not goth rock ;-;
Their decent, but nothing special. To be honest I like the Killers more.
Eh their ok I guess.
It's amazing that Dave Grohl is able to play drums for Nirvana and continue his musical career by starting a band as a lead singer and guitarist. And letting his drumming career didn't make Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins look bad at all.
How in the world can Evanescence be No1 and FF at 4...
This right here is a tragedy
There's only two words I can use to describe this band, kick ass! They have great songs, Shaun Morgan's one hell of a singer and their great live enough said.
Definitely one of the best alternative rock groups of the noughties, and in my opinion one of the best acts of that decade. Their ability to combine a mainstream sound with brilliant music as well as intelligent and well-written lyrics is extremely impressive and helps to contribute to a whole library of fantastic music. Meanwhile, their virtual band concept is also quite unique and the members created are very enjoyable characters to enjoy watching as well as being a great satire on manufactured pop bands. A fantastic band overall and one of my favourites. I just can't wait for them to release their next album. - Mrveteran
I love feel good inc
Definitely a good alternative 2000's band.
One of my fave bands of all time
One of the best ever bands
Thiss band can give me in two days, more emotion than I have had in two months - AnonymousChick
For number one it was a hard choice between been this band and Theory of a Deadman but this band just felt more worthy of 1st place considering the good songs, how underrated they are and more. And yes it is possible to make a list of the 2000's without Foo Fighters or Linkin Park as number one all the damn time.
Staind is the most underrated band. They have virtually no bad songs and in my opinion the greatest vocal talent of all time in Aaron Lewis
"For you " is really amazing - in fact many of their songs are so good - Ananya
Ridiculously better than evanescence
