201 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

202 Catfish And The Bottlemen

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

203 Cold War Kids V 2 Comments
204 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.

206 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.

214 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.

215 Senses Fail

This band is awesome, its not known by many but people should listen to them

I love senses fail! I wish more people knew about it...

216 The Breeders

In my opinion one of the most underrated bands of the 90s or if not, all time. So god damn good.

217 Mother Mother

Pure talent! These guys are the real definition of alternative. All of these other bands are too commercial. Mother mother truly captures the idea of what it is to be alternative with all four of their albums. They just get better and better!

219 The Verve The Verve The Verve were an English rock band formed in Wigan in 1990 by lead vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bass guitarist Simon Jones and drummer Peter Salisbury. Guitarist and keyboard player Simon Tong became a member at a later date.

My favorite one hit wonder band of all time! Check out their Urban Hymns album. Lots of content and amazing tracks!

220 Collective Soul Collective Soul Collective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia. Now based in Atlanta, the group consists of lead vocalist Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett.

REALLY!? REALLY!? WHY IS THIS 278? As a matter of fact... WHY IS IT BEHIND PANIC AT THE DISCO!? Not only Collective Soul... But Goo Goo Dolls And Stone Temple Pilots should be HIGHER! These guys were the DEFINITION OF ALTERNATIVE. These Guys Should Be Up there AT MOST in Between The #5- 20!

They are one of the greatest modern rock bands. They still have a classic rock sound. They have so much emotion in there music. Listen to the world I know, December, and especially shine! They are simply incredible!

December and shine, these two songs are my favorite start from 17 years ago up until now. So they worth to be in the top ten

Lol bittersweet Symphony is the only song I've heard by them
