Best Alternative Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 11

201 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!

202 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?

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.

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!

This low means this list is a joke

217 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.
