222 Smash Mouth Smash Mouth Smash Mouth is an American rock band from San Jose, California. The band was formed in 1994, and was originally composed of Steve Harwell, Kevin Coleman, Greg Camp, and Paul De Lisle.

My childhood. Should be higher its truly alternative unlike many of the bands in the top spots.

They are absolutely GREAT! I love them! :D

Best songs are Hang on and All Star

223 Novecento
224 Pulp

"If fashion is your trade, then when you're naked, I guess you must be unemployed yeah... "

It is the best band of all time and no one can say otherwise

Along with blur suede and oasis they make up the britpop movement - PaulSkinback

225 Travis

Every song of Travis is awesome. Just give a try to- Closer, why does it always rain with me, turn... I bet you won't stop listening to their music.


OH come on! 222?! SERIOUSLY?! TOP 50 PLEASE!

This band's sound is a kind of transition between Britpop and post-britpop, post-early Radiohead sound but it's worth listening.

226 The Smithereens
227 VAST
228 The National

Amazing alternative band. Every album is excellent. Matt Beringer's voice is addicting yet soothing.

229 Metro Station Metro Station Metro Station is an American pop rock band that was formed in Los Angeles by Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso.

I love them so much, metro were my Idol since I was 9, 4 years,

230 Pulse Ultra

Too bad only one album came out of this band. They had killer musicians and I wish the songs caught on...

231 Flyleaf
232 Forever the Sickest Kids

How are they in the 200's? The songs "Believe Me, I'm Lying" and "She's a Lady" are good enough to put them in the top ten. Since they aren't as mainstream as those in the Top Ten Forever the Sickest Kids may never get the respect that they deserve. Please vote this band up into at least the Top 100. Also the All-American Rejects should be in the Top Five, yet they are much higher and the same goes for Mayday Parade. So many good bands that are so relatable that are getting no respect! Please vote for Forever The Sickest Kids!

Please vote them up! This band is amazing and they deserve to be in the Top Ten!

Great band! I relate to this band the most... Because I went through a divorce and barely get to see my amazing daughter! Just because she "moved on"

This band never seems to get the credit they deserve.

Who hasnt listened to hate me, one of first songs that got me into this kind of music

237 Wilco

238 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!

239 Hole Hole Hole was an American alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989 by singer and guitarist Courtney Love and lead guitarist Eric Erlandson.

They should be tied with Nirvana at least

They should at least be up there in the top 20's, very underrated band.

Hole is great should be #2 Cause Courtney and Kurt were the best

From my heart and from my hand, why don't people understand, my intention? How has his not been suggested? This is true alternative.
