435 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

438 Icehouse

It's always cold inside the Icehouse

439 Switchfoot Switchfoot

Switchfoot is definitely #1 in my opinion. They should be up in the top 10 for their sheer lyrical brilliance and originality. Also, some of the bands on this list are not actually "alternative" bands...

What is switchfoot not in the top10? This band is sheer amazement. Listen to Dare you to move and love alone is worth the fight. Thank me later.

My favorite band. Deserves much more recognition than this. I agree, it's true alternative.

This is the real alternative band

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!
