The Greatest And Most Expirimental Alternative Band Ever Should Be #1

265 The Libertines

Wow no libertines?

People have no sense of what alternative means.

266 Lions!Tigers!Bears!

Very underrated yet very unique and precise sound.

267 Nonpoint
268 You Me at Six

230? Are you frigging kidding me? These guys might not be the best of all time, but seriously they deserve a much higher position! Room To Breathe, Lived A Lie, Liquid Confidence and Cold Night; all four of these songs are really damn awesome.

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

273 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!

274 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

275 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

Agreed. 359 is WAY too low for them on this list. They deserve at the very least top 40

Definitely the top 20 of alternative bands!

278 Gin Blossoms

Unreal how is this group not listed in top 10 for alternative groups they were getting just as much airplay as Nirvana back in the early days of alternative music and they were also very influential to scores of future groups in this genre!

279 Daughter

There voices are so beautiful and unique, they are my drug

280 Oingo Boingo

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