62 Hoobastank Hoobastank Hoobastank is an American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California with lead singer Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen.

What's the matter with you guys you didn't put in Hoobastank, instead you added Mushroomhead. OK not all the songs are alternative but they are insane and know what it's like in this world.

Deserve much higher place on the list

64 Sick Puppies Sick Puppies Sick Puppies is an Australian rock band, formed in 1997. Sick Puppies rose to prominence in 2006 when their song "All the Same" was uploaded along with a video to YouTube.

Their sound is different and completely their own. One of the greatest alt. Metal bands of this year

65 Living Colour Living Colour Living Colour is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1984. Stylistically, the band's music is a creative fusion influenced by heavy metal, punk rock, funk, jazz, hip hop and alternative rock.

Ok people should know damn well that this band is a very good classic metal band that has very popular songs from back then to now & not be no number 63

If you took out all the post grunge and Nu-Metal bands, In Flames would be pretty high on this list. I miss the old melodeth In Flames but that background gives their music a sense of technical proficiency and speed other alt metal bands lack.

68 The Devin Townsend Project

I'm sorry but half of the bands on here aren't alternative metal. I like slipknot but they are nu metal and don't deserve a place on this list, as good as they are. - andrewtuckey

73 American Head Charge

These guys are the definition of Alternative metal, the amount of different effects, song structures and vocal styles on display, means every song has a something new to offer, a truly underrated band.

American Head Charge are way too underrated and should have become way more famous than they did.

I used to hang out w/ AHC when I was in kindergarten. They lived w/ my dad in minneapolis for a while
