Best Alternative Bands of the 21st Centurymneilan
The Contenders: Page 2
I feel sorry for the people that haven't even tried to listen to this band. For a band that has such great quality music, they really don't get the attention that they deserve. Yes, they are in fact the most important musical act of the 21st century. OK Computer (albeit a 90s album) is the quintessential alternative rock album, and probably the only album to actually be comparable to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. And they didn't even stop there... They continued to make Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows, The King of Limbs, and the exceptional A Moon Shaped Pool, all of which are worth your time. Don't fool yourself.
Are you kidding me? Is this best Indie band by popularity or by content? I can't believe Radiohead isn't even in the top 10!
What? The band that made the best record of the century with Kid A isn't in the top 1? What about masterpiece In Rainbows? This is SO biased
This made me sick. radiohead are the best band of all timeV 2 Comments
Many of these bands deserve their place on this list, especially this one. It helped bring forth a new generation of music.
Everything they do is amazing there my 4th favorite band ever never released a bad song or album - rybread28
My Chemical Romance is the type of band that will live on forever, even after a break-up.
WHAT!? NO WAY ARE THEY THIS LOW! Fellow killjoys, we mustn't let this happen!V 3 Comments
So amazing. Inspiring lyrics, and just amazing songs in general.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES IS MY LIFE!
i love bvb
OneRepublic, in my opinion, should be number one. Don't know who they are? Secrets, All The Right Moves, Stop and Stare, Good Life, and yes, Apologize. No, it is not a Timbaland song, they just did a mediocre remix of it and never properly gave credit to OneRepublic. They are my FAVORITE band! Please just give them a listen?
OneRepublic is and always will be so much more than just an Alternative Band for me. They're a sensation, an inspiration, a motivation, and the very personification of beauty in imperfection. The lyrics are soulful and heart wrenching, yet lively and vivacious. Harmonizing and the music, the backing and the sheer sounds and sensations they cause are insurmountable. And Ryan Tedder's voice mixed with Zach Filkin's guitarring; I can feel again.
They make me Feel Again. Definitely number one.
I love this band. It is always finding new ways to appeal to others, and mixing up their music yet giving a great message at the same time! - RedDiamond
This band is awesome. it sounds great and it isn't dark like cold play and Linkin Park.
Come on! The strokes are simply awesome! Just listen to machu picchu, you guys know what I mean.
Most original, smooth and creative rock music of the last 15 years. Better than all of the above besides maybe Green Day and Linkin Park. But Id still give it ti the strokes which managed to create such beautiful, and unforgettable tunes wihoutthe need to scream around allay and make a
I love this band I ve just listen their letest album comedown machine amzing julians voice is awesome the strokes must be in top five it deserve that position... )
Their music style has changes drastically from 2006 to 2013, and for the better. Their albums always have different sounding songs and are well rounded as a band in general. Should at least be in the top tenV 3 Comments
