Very underrated yet very unique and precise sound.

274 Nonpoint

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.

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!

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!
