204 The Replacements The Replacements

Bastards of Young, Left of the Dial, Alex Chilton.. Need I go on? These guys are the PIONEERS OF ALTERNATIVE ROCK.

One of the greatest bands ever! Should be 261!

Should be much higher. Saw them in at Sloss Furnace in Birmingham with 200 people in the 80s and they totally killed it. The girl I brought fell in love with me for the summer. LOL! We were spoiled back then because I saw REM like every other years until they split. I also got to see Morrisey in Birmingham a few years back. REM, The Replacements, The Smiths, Joy Division, General Public/English Beat and the Smithereens owned the 80s-90s. I also listened to Faith no More and The Clash and they also very great.

205 Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist ...read more.

206 Vertical Horizon

Very Underrated band should be in top 10

I see no comments here for vertical horizon so I just putting it out there that they are a brilliant band with amazing songs, they deserve top 30 at least, and the top 2 of this list is all wrong, likin park are good but not #1 good and in all honesty I think nirvana are awful

207 Thousand Foot Krutch Thousand Foot Krutch

LOL this has to be a joke hh #245 seriously? anyways I love the group! they are just A.M.A.Z.I.N.G I can't spend a day without listening to their songs

208 Catfish And The Bottlemen

How are they so low when they influenced the smiths, the Beatles, nirvana and beyonce

209 Cold War Kids V 2 Comments
210 Kongos

This band is relatively new, but hey deserve more recognition. Their only hit was Come With Me Now, which (in my opinion) is not their best song on their album. I hope in their new album, they get the credit they deserve.

212 They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

Greatest band ever. No doubt about it. "birdhouse in your soul" "istanbul" and "don't lets start, " just to name a few, are some of the best alternative rock songs ever. - queen11

33 years since their first live show, 29 years since their first album, and they still manage to be absolutely amazing.

220 The Wombats

They might just be one of my favourite bands ever, alongside Coldplay and Foster the People. They are sort of electro-pop, alternative and a little grunge all mixed together! I love them so much and I love Coldplay, Foster the People and Ellie Goulding(who isn't really alternative).

No one has more killer songs per album other than The Wombats. They aren't very popular but they are an awesome alt band.
