222 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.

223 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

224 Tears for Fears Tears for Fears Tears for Fears are an English pop/rock band formed in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. 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.

Not alternative but a very good new wave band

"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

231 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.

232 The Smithereens
233 VAST
234 The National

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

235 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,

236 Pulse Ultra

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

237 Flyleaf
238 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!
