Best Alternative Albums of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Parachutes - Coldplay

Beautiful album with great emotion and lyrics. The message of this album shines through. This album is a mellower one, but it is incredible. Not one song is boring because each has a distinct sound and something that makes you want to hear more and more. It is amazing and should be way higher in the rankings!

42 Hail to the Thief - Radiohead
43 90125 - Yes
44 A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
45 Stupid Dream - Porcupine Tree
46 X&Y - Coldplay

Should be way higher! Absolutely incredible album from start to finish. Every song is great and the band really shows what they are capable of. The lyrics are also immeasurable.

47 White Pony - Deftones

I'm not sure if this album is among the best alternative albums of all time, but it's really good and a lot better than a lot of the albums on this list. - Imreallyboredrightnow

48 See You On the Other Side - Korn
49 Wasting Light - Foo Fighters
50 Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

This is not alternative it is progressive

This isn't an alternative album guys.

51 Fallen - Evanescence
52 Meteora - Linkin Park

I prefer this to hybrid theory, there I said it! This album captures everything I love about Linkin Park, I don't what the hell happened to them after they released New Divide with A Thousand Suns & Living Things but that's not the linkin park I know, Meteora is amazing! So many of the songs are underrated such as figure.09 and lying from you and hit the floor! One of my top 3 albums ever! Love It and deserves to be in the top 10 along with Hybrid Theory!

53 By the Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers
54 Is This It - The Strokes

Is this for real

55 Pinkerton - Weezer V 1 Comment
56 London Calling - The Clash
