Best Alternative Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 7
The alternative melancholic romantic perfection...
Disgusting that Tool is ranked under a lot of these talentless noise polluters. I mean seriously? Nickelback, Matchbox 20, Linkin Park, and Coldplay are in the top 50? Faith in humanity has been officially lost.
Tool encompasses everything a band should be. Musical diversity and uniqueness, lyrics that have meaning, and artistic genus when it comes to the visual things they do on their albums and in their shows.
Tool was and is the new Alternative rock. It sounds like metal, but is so much more and for smart people too. Rock on Maynard and Company
Undertow. All I have to say.V 4 Comments
Ok jeez. Should be way higher. I know they are also pop, but still good. Also the idiot who said "should be #1" is probably a pop fan.V 2 Comments
This is my all time favorite band and my first concert ever! Gosh I love them!
Should be higher it helped pave the way along with nirvana and A.I. C stone temple pilots way under rated for what it is
Why the hell is lost prophets way out here? They deserve to be higher in the list!
They should be on the last, every song is ruined because of that
Alt. Rock band who people don't respect anyymore because of watkins. But there were other members too and COME ON! They deserve a place on this list for rockeing for over a decade.
AWOLNATION deserves much higher than this! For one, so many bands that were listed before AN are mainstream (not alternative at this point-for example) or metal, or some other genre that is NOT alternative. But also, half the bands that WERE, sound so unoriginal. Whenever I hear them, I can't tell which band is which! AN has a unique, distinct sound that couldn't be mistaken for any other band. That said, other bands that have a very unique sound are Franz Ferdinand, Harvey Danger, the White Stripes, and the Black Keys (all of which were either listed way lower than they should have been or have not been listed yet). Whoever compiled this list obviously does not possess a taste for this genre of music, because of the extreme inadequacy and clear ignorance. One can see that all the most well known bands are at the top. Anyone who truly appreciates Alternative music understands that the whole point of alternative is that it's not mainstream, and that unpopular bands can be (and are) ...more
AWOLNATION is the best band I've ever listened to. They make the best songs ever and have a unique sound and style. They should be way higher on the charts. I mean the owner just bought a 1.5 million dollar retreat at a beach. There is not one song by them I don't like. They are all I listen to on my IPod. This band is amazing.V 2 Comments
These guys are super popular in England now!V 1 Comment
Original music is hard to come by. I would say Cake is one of the most unique bands ever. Their alternative sound mixed with the trumpet is a really cool combo.
Love their songs. HOW IS this not higher!? - Savolax
How? These guys are underrated to no end, their guitarist doesn't even have a wikipedia page. They have some pf the best songs out their.
What about "Little Monster", and "Come On Over"?!?!?!?V 1 Comment
Limp Bizkit has been around for a long time and put out consistently great sound. They will endure.V 1 Comment
Great band at their start hope they keep up the great work
They are so underrated, they should be further to the top of the list.
They should be way higher up on the list...
Vote For Them!
They have all types of music, From Rock to rap to alternative to techno an almost everything! :)
After you listen to a song of theirs you will fall in love with HU.
YES! MY FAVORITE BAND OF ALL TIME!V 4 Comments
It is one of that bands, that defines my way of life. I wish I could see them live, I know - it's impossible nowadays... Great vibe of tim. Com's bass plus tom's freaky guitar style...
It's depressing that all of those self-harm emo bands and many crap bands are higher than Audioslave. - wyattn97
I searched the entire list to find Audioslave and I am disappointed that I had to search so long.. 123? Really? NM.V 3 Comments
Watch them live, and you'll DEFINITELY fall in love. I remember I went through this stage where I was obsessed with X Ambassadors, and I listened to their music ALL the time. For a short period of time, I stopped obsessing over them, and just recently, I went to one of their concerts. BEST EVER. I am stalking them all over again.
Best alternative band these days by far. Nirvana comes in a close second though.
One of the best groups ever u guys don't do that to them they totally deserve to be in this list let's give it to them..!
, this deserves to be higher
I think they are good.
This band is legendary and has so much history. I love the music they make and how genuine they R. I'm not saying they deserve to be #1 but they're definitely in the top 100 c:V 1 Comment
