366 Trading Yesterday

They are amazing. They are awesome. They are legendary. They are epic. The list could go on!

Especially their album "Human Equation" is worth hearing. Decide yourself, but I think that Arjen Lucasen is one of the most talented musicians ever.

368 Stereophonics

Best Alternative Band Ever, all songs are fantastic

369 Wolf Parade

371 Bastille Bastille Bastille are an English indie pop band formed in 2010. The group began as a solo project by singer Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. Beside Smith, the four-piece consists of Chris Wood, Will Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons.

How can't I find Bastille in the first 200? Are they even on the list? They're definitely in my top 10 favorite bands. They're even on the second place. Coldplay is number one of course and snow patrol deserves to be higher up too and what about the 1975 and imagine dragons? They can't stand so low. Come on!

This should be in top 10. my favorite

Wow. Just wow. This band is great it needs to be way higher.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? why is bastille so low... this is like my favourite band ever... they sing about evreything from death to life from love to betrayel... THEY ARE AWESOME

I ponder of something great, my lungs will fill and then deflate, they fill with fire exhale desire, I know its dire my time today. I have these thoughts so often I ought to replace that slot with what I once bought 'cause somebody stole my car radio and now I just sit in silence. Sometimes quiet is violent, I find it hard to hide it, my pride is no longer inside, its on my sleeve my skin will scream reminding me of who I killed inside my dream, I hate this car that I'm driving, there is no distraction to mask what is real, I could pull the steering wheel. I have these thoughts so often I ought to replace that slot with what I once bought 'cause somebody stole my car radio and now I just sit in silence (music) I ponder of something terrifying 'cause this time there's no sound to hide behind, I find open the course of a human existence one thing consists of consistence, and its that we're all battling fear, oh dear I don't know if know we're here, OH MY TO DEEP, PLEASE STOP THINKING, I ...more

Now, twenty one pilots is notoriously the hardest band to place in a genre and even alternative is an understatement. And I even slightly disagree with using alternative to describe them, just because of alternative being connected heavily to emo culture, which most people get a "depressed, angsty teen" vibe from. Twenty one pilots is SO different from that, their songs have a way deeper meaning than just the surface view and help you really understand Tyler. Not to mention how they deal with the concept of suicide/depression and even say that it's okay to feel unworthy and that no one gets you but always are sure to mention in some capacity that you ARE worthy and there ARE people who feel the same. Their lyrics are some of the most meaningful, their beats are some of the most catchy, captivating and unique, and each song gives a different feeling/has a different purpose as well as a different genre meaning that there is probably a twenty one pilots song for any person, no matter ...more

This band has honestly saved me from so many hard times. This is an honest amazing band with inspiring lyrics, Tyler Joseph and Josh dun are so down to earth and way cool who genuinely care for their fans. Not only are they have amazing concerts full of energy but they are one of few bands who talk about real issues such as depression and suicide but they do so without using and vulgar and offensive language. All in all AMAZING band my absolute favorite I love these guys never has two complete strangers had such an impact on me as these two I love them. I would recommend this band to everyone.

I'm saying this as a fan but they are not a top ten alternative band. They will never be as great as Green Day or Nirvana. It's really hard to place them in a genre but what they do is awesome and I love their sound. That being said, they do deserve to be a little bit higher.
