Mudvayne are very talented musicians, much more talented than garbage like Linkin Park and Slipknot.
Mudvayne must be in the place 1 this band is so amazing! The vocalist the bassist is very nice I don't know why them have to stay in the 17th place. Posers System of a Down first place pfff... this list are full of crap
Mudvayne is best aternative band I've ever heard cauze they touching my dark heart in they lyrics keep hangin'4 all of yours bro you guys make so got damn rock on!
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...
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
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
I honestly think Red should deserve a spot at least in the twenties. I, and I'm sure many others too, feel that Red is under-credited too much. They are an amazing band that can go to slow and soft, to sharp an heavy. The ways in which they approach music is something new and very exciting. Each song they have created has its own unique voice, which I know I find pretty awesome. Hell, whenever I introduce Red to people who definitely express their dislike to anything related to metal ( whether it even be alternative rock), they fall in love with them and tell me how much Red's music is amazing and it's something they've never heard before. Red deserves a higher place, and I hope people soon come to realize just what an amazingly creative and talented band they are.
Are you kidding me, every single song they come out with is simply amazing. They express such emotion in their songs and sure, they're on the Christian side but they never preach. And their songs are heavy as hell at times. These guys should definitely be in the top 5 this list is a joke
Should be up there with Breaking Benjamin. It seems like no one really knows about there music, because if people did, Red would be labeled as one of the top modern bands. - X_xvBaTMaNvx_X
I had to dig through a lot of garbage to find this Jewel. If you like Breaking Benjamin, you might like RED even more.V 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 ❤❤❤
I'm sorry but no Christian rock band should be on this list. - Kfox101
Great band, great message!
If you like skillet then you're dumb
Honestly, I'm not entirely sure if they're alt metal or prog metal but either way they deserve to be on this list they are complex, exciting, deep and that bassist!V 1 Comment
Best band to never really get mainstream during the nu metal explosion on the early 00's
They are the godfather of nu-metal
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.
Mile Patton's a great singer - Kfox101
Mike Patton's a great singer - Kfox101
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
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
QOTSA is primarily desert rock before alt metal. While they were one of the bands to get me into alt metal, they are much more bluesy and at times psychedelic in their sound. It's basically a genre that seems to be captained by Joshua Homme these days, spanning several different acts, including Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures, and the entirety of the Desert Sessions just to name a few. They have collaborated with several artists that span the rock and metal genre and have been consistently been putting out albums that are always fresh, but not an entire alienation to their sound which hold heavily in their own genre as well as others. So while I wouldn't particularly call them an alt metal band, they definitely deserve recognition for their influence on the genre.
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
