393 Mew

Mew has always been one of the greatest bands there is. They have a sound that's unique to them. Not to mention the lyrics. The lead singer, Jonas has one of the best falsettos and singing. The guitarist, Bo Madsen made some of the best rock riffs (in my opinion). Johan Wohlert, the bassist has complete mastery over the bass. Lastly, Silas Jorgensen, forgotten how to play straight beats, and has the best drum lines ever. Despite calling themselves "pop", they are alternative rock. I would recommend the songs: Am I Wry? No, Special, Wheels Over me, and The Seething Rain Weeps For You.

An extremely underrated band, not just their music, but also their music videos, a must see and listen for any indie fan, especially "Breezeblocks" and "Hunger of the Pine"

How can people like this crappy boy band. All of their songs sound the same. I'm glad they're so low on this list, where they deserve to be.

How are they on this list?! for those who voted for this are definitely pop fans, YUCK!

Are you kidding? 5sos is above twenty one pilots?

There guys are not alternative nor punk! There a crappy modern POP-rock group. In fact, alternative is like R.E.M., The Smiths, and Hüsker Dü while punk is Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Clash, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Black Flag, Green Day, The Offspring, Rancid, Bad Religion, and NOFX. You guys need to stop labeling band that aren't that type of genre!
