Best Alternative Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 8
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
Bloc Party albums are on fire. Call the Fire Department because my ears are about to burn down.
PLACEBO PLACEBO PLACEBO! They are the most addictive drug. And they are not just the best alternate band, the just the best band ever! And that's really weird that they are just 50s... But anyway they are the best!
Well, the truth is that Placebo are very alternative for this list... I mean, Linkin Park and Foo Fighters, they are rock giants... Placebo is not that kind of band. They are more introvert, withdrawn, but they have many loyal fans that like the work they do. They are evolving all the time, producing high quality music... And of course, they have Brian... Go get 'em, tigers!
They are like no other band, and deserve to be the best. Brill to just listen too and sing along! They are absolutely amazing when it comes to lyrics and guitars. The best
They definitely deserve a higher position on this list. They're one of the most creative, thoughtful bands I have ever heard.V 13 Comments
Epic, By far one of the best bands of all time. With a front man like Aaron Lewis, who pours every ounce of his soul into every song he sings this band should be number one.
When I first heard Staind, I was all over this genre. They have a way with their music that connects to me personally. Easy to remember the lyrics and easy to play on the guitar. I love most every song I've ever heard and really enjoy the way the music picks up my mood.
One of the best bands by far! This band really deserves to be in top 15 in my opinion. I'd really recommend that everyone who has never heard of this band to go out and listen to some of their songs, you may all soon become fans too!
Staind = alternative rock
cold play = not
I don't understand how they can be in the 200s. They are an amazing band. Their music is very original and so are their music videos. They are one of my favorite bands of all time. Their concerts are the most amazing thing in the whole entire world. It was so amazingly fun. I would go again if I had a chance. Honestly I think they should be on the top 5. They have a song for every emotion. I can relate so much to their lyrics. I love their rhythm and its just something about them that are just amazing in every way.
They should be in the Top Ten. They're one of the best bands I've ever heard. And they're the reason why I have loved listening to alternative rock. I can relate to their lyrics.
Definitely should be in the top 10. They are great, their lyrics are meaningful and they are fun to listen to and to watch while at their concerts. I really think they deserve to be at least in the top 10, if not in the top 3, or first. And if you don't know them you should listen to them!

This is wack guess a lot of people don't know that dream theater is NOT NOT a alternative band! Gez what! Wacckk! DT ROCK!V 1 Comment
One of the most compelling musical acts ever. Every album breathes a new style. From the punk sounds of their early years to the post hardcore sounds of black sails, the dark tones of Sing the sorrow. To the radio friendly style of december underground and crash love. You can't go wrong there is an AFI song for everyone
One of the most underrated bands on the planet. They inspired so many bands and were leader in the genre, they deserve more respect than they get! I love AFI and I always will!
This is pathetic! They were my all time favorite. In high school. They clearly don't get the credit and respect they deserve!V 2 Comments
I am trying to figure out why this band was not on the list, I really like them. They have a really cool Rap/Rock sound and I have never heard another band come close in terms of Rap metal. They also have really good lyrics, they actually have lyrics that are something more than just hating people and ranting about how unfair life is.V 1 Comment
Good Charlotte the best. Girls & boys, lifestyle of rich n famous are like my favorite tunes. Anyone doubting should listen to those
Changed my life and got me obsessed with music. I didn't care for music till I hear these guys and simple plan. Best band of all time
Come on! Good Charlotte should be in top 10! They are my first alternative rock band! Their music was so amazing!
:0 how are good charlotte not in the top ten?V 3 Comments
Noah and the Whale is an amazing band. Their best songs include 'Just Me Before We Met', 'L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.', 'Waiting for my Chance to Come', 'Life is Life' and 'Tonight's the Kind of Night'. However, don't listen to their first few albums; only listen to their latest one, titled 'Last Night on Earth'.V 1 Comment
