202 The Maine

Needs to be number 1! The Maines music is full of heart and Passion. They are life changing and without a doubt one of the best bands!

203 Yellowcard Yellowcard

Yellowcard are an unbelievable band with a lot of heart and amazing musicians. Yellowcard have a lot of great songs most of them are about love but that's what most people want to hear Yellocard should be at least be top 75 and yeah they are Underdogs but they are great and all of you have to respect it if I had to rank Yellowcard they should be next to Sum 41 they are a good band to and I respect both bands

Makes cheesy love songs great with innovative chord patterns and great violin backup. Easily #2. Behind the killers

Disappointed I didn't see them in the list.. They should be at least in the top 50... UNDERDOGS for the win!

Weren't they already on the list?

204 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

205 Secondhand Serenade

I will support you in there until you in the top table in this competition, you are amazing band and good singer in the world, you must be the winner and you are is awake, please don't tell me that I'm the only one that vulnerable impossible

Amazing band with great music. They're music is heartfelt and so are their songs.

No. This band is amazing and definitely should be in the top 15. Some people just don't know music anymore. Smh.

206 Modest Mouse Modest Mouse Modest Mouse is an American rock band formed in 1992 in Issaquah, Washington, and currently based in Portland, Oregon.

HOW is this band so low on the list? It should be within the top 50 at LEAST. Their sound is an example of what alternative IS to me. Vote! - mg296

This band should be number 1 and they're not even on this list. Well, they are now but they weren't before. I think.

207 Taking Back Sunday

Lets give them some credit people, they have been making awesome alternative punk rock for 10 plus years. My all time favorite band.

MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE.
LOVE THESE GUYS..
YOU HAVE TO HEAR THEM TO BELIEVE ME...

And also this... Guys come one; get with the program

Best band ever!

208 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

209 Garbage Garbage Garbage is an American-Scottish alternative rock band formed in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1993. The group consists of Scottish musician Shirley Manson and American musicians Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig.

They are amazing. Album after album of songs of such consistent quality. Their newest album, strange little birds is, in my opinion, their best yet. Their songs are original but they keep that rock feel that makes them so great. Just listen to their music.

Garbage is the band that established alternative rock, fronted by iconic Shirley Manson! Do I have to say more? For me the most talented rock singer ever. Thank you Shirley, you make my day, every day...

Simply, The purest ever alternative rock band, fronted by the charismatic Shirley Manson. Get to YouTube and listen to them... Shirley just rocks!

They should be so much higher than this

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.
