Bullet aren't alternative metal but are still good nonetheless
Great band but don't hear temper temper
Not alternative metal. Whiny bullcrap for scene kids whose music taste hasn't yet developed.
Why is Bullet For My Valentine so down below here?
Listen to Tears Don't Fall (Pt 1) & Bittersweet memories
They'll blow your mind away...
They Invented Sludge! If it wasn't for them, grunge, sludge wouldn't even exist...
Papa roach? 24?... Whats wrong with you?
PAPA ROACH is the BEST! It should be number 1!
Papa Roach way better than 3days posersV 1 Comment
One of the best bend on the earth.
Awesome band, should be in top 10. Go Limp Bizkit!
Keep on rollin' baby! M/
Underrated. Really great band, but Limp Bizkit is very rapcore...
I love this band ❤❤❤
Biased because they're the first cd I ever bought. Got it for the creepy clown in the cover (I was young). They blew my mind from beginning to end. Then they changed formats with each album, and continued to blow my mind.
Great band, great message!
If you like skillet then you're dumb
I understand why this is so low. Firstly it is German and (almost) nobody wants to listen to another language secondly it is industrial not alternate but they are still the best. - mitsurugi
Well, I will vote for them anyways since I love Rammstein, but they are mainly Industrial Metal, so I understand why they are so low on this list.
Rammstein is my favourite band. They brought me to world of metal. German language in their songs makes it 100 percent more brutal. When you translate their lyrics you will love'em twice as much. I'm not surprised that they are forbidden in Germany (for younger than 21).
I agree they are industrial metal or should fall under the NDHV 1 Comment
Impossible. Nickelback can't be higher than any alternative metal band on this list. Godsmack should be higher in this list. By the way, how can you beat their songs like I stand Alone, Bad Magick, Whatever, and Voodoo.
They've been around for such a long time, with so many awesome songs! They deserve to be at least in the Top Ten!
Are you kidding me they should be number 1 they have so many great songs Voodoo, Whatever, awake, I standd alone just to name a few this list is a joke
This is too weird. Nirvana should be the top group
Nirvana aren't Alt metal they are Grunge
They is my aesthetic! how are they not top ten!
White Zombie isn't alternative metal, but White Zombie is an awesome band.
This band is awesome... Math metal with prog elements the real death from Sweden
Best band ever don't look the ratings. Listen to their songs. RISE Today is their best song. Never vote for a band you have not heard. AB is the best. I wanna rise today and change this world. Their lyrics are awesomely awesome. They are better than Linkin Park system of down. They should be in top 10
I'm not saying these guys should definitely be number one, there's a lot of really good metal bands. But I think there really under rated and I think that any fan of alt metal really needs to listen to these guys and then rethink there vote. Especially there newest album Fortress.
Have no idea why a band like Alter Bridge was continuously overlooked throughout the years. You just cannot find even one bad song in their 3 studio albums - and in September 2013 they're gonna release one more. Myles Kennedy is bound to be one of the top 5 vocalist of all time.
Best among rest..Die hard fan. Blackbird is the best rock songV 5 Comments
Might not be the hardest or the most progressive of the bands on this list, but definitely a talented and innovative 5 piece group. Their recording sound and proffesionality live alone, should be appreciated also by fans of harder groups..
Deserve at least top 5 in my opinion. Incredible band, incredible lyrics and Genius musician, each and every one of them!
I love Incubus, mix-genre bands are the best! This should be at least number 10 in the list. - jonothius
For those STUPID EMOS who think that their music is really heavy just because their favorite "musicians" are dressed like satan go listen to some real hardcore songs like: "certain shade of green" by incubus.V 1 Comment
MJK's main project, Tool, is well deserving of its #1 spot but to have his second of similarly incredible quality so low at #44? Disappointing. This needs to be higher.
I can't believe I had to add this in the list. Better than sod.
Maybe better than the grass substitute (sod) but not greater than the band
Stp is better than 90 percent of the turds that are on list no matter what genre u wanna put them in there a really good band perfect singer went along great with what the deleos were trying to do a tight band and talented too
Very amazing band, as well as the vocalist Mike Patton who in which is involved with numerous bands including, "Faith no More" and "Peeping Tom" etc...
Marilyn Manson is literally a perfect example of a "alternative metal" band. Everything from Manson's vocals, to the bands instrumentals, it all comes together and creates an orgasm for your ears.
What... This band should be in top ten!
Best band ever

Pearl Jam is hard rock, not metal.
Best band to never really get mainstream during the nu metal explosion on the early 00's
They are the godfather of nu-metal
