Best Alternative Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 12

221 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...

222 The Breeders

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

223 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!

225 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!

226 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

228 Wolf Alice

Their songs are the rare middle ground between indie and rock. Each song of theirs is completely unique!

They've just released their first album, but I believe they will be big in future.

229 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

They should be higher up. A good mix of prog alternative metal and psychedelic. Listen to songs like gravity eyelids and time flies

Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the new wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock ...read more.

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

237 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.

THIS BAND IS WAY BETTER AND DESERVES TO BE IN THE TOP 10. WITHOUT THIS BAND COLDPLAY OR KEANE WOULD HAVE NEVER EXISTED!

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.

238 The Smithereens
239 VAST
240 The National

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