Best Alternative Rock Songs of the 21st Century

The Top Ten

1 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Cover Art

This song is amazing!

...the best I've ever heard ...No song comes close to this one..

This is metal. not alternative Rock

2 In the End - Linkin Park In the End - Linkin Park Cover Art

My favourite song of Linkin Park. love you chester

Linkin Park is the best!

It's one of the best!

Its start with one

3 Holiday - Green Day Holiday - Green Day Cover Art

Beats any Linkin Park song if you ask me.

Amazing song by Green Day... They nailed it!

YEEES! If any song to make this list, this is a perfect nomination!

4 Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

This song is not good

Kick ass mild solo, amazing vocals, video, edgy rythym... What else do you need in a song?

5 Waiting for the End - Linkin Park Waiting for the End - Linkin Park Cover Art

I Still love Linkin Park, with the changes of music style from hybrid theory

Linkin Park is best of the best!

I really love whatever linkin park cook. They are just awesome... Maybe I would have chosen other songs of linkin park for #1 spot but still it doesn't dissapoint. Cheers

Amazing song never get tired of listening to it;)
It makes me remember all my good moments

6 My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence Cover Art

Just because this song is on an alt rock album doesn't mean it is alt rock...

I love this songs and I'm sure that this song is better then "Dear God" by Avenged Sevenfold

7 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin Cover Art

This is the greatest rock song of all time definitely needs to be number 1!

Great song by a great band

Pretty boring to me.

Seriously?
Waiting For The End?
THIS IS THE MOST AWESOME!

8 The Kill - Thirty Seconds to Mars The Kill - Thirty Seconds to Mars Cover Art

I'm sorry for you this song must be the best alternative rock song
I just can say sorry!

This song should be high because it's actually Alternative.

This song is overrated

Hmmm. The kill? Simply the best song in the universe!

9 Walk - Foo Fighters Walk - Foo Fighters Cover Art

Great song. It makes me feel so good

10 I Hate Everything About You - Three Days Grace I Hate Everything About You - Three Days Grace Cover Art

While I am glad this is here, it needs to be higher up. I understand some think this is touchy, though.

Whoa.
I can gurantee all that none of song in this world would motivate to move on, beside this. 3day Grace created a master piece of emotionly broked down rage of a broken heart. You say music, lyrics, The voice... Every moment in this class song is EPIC.

This is definitely a good song I'll admit, also I'm getting sick of lists that have Linkin Park overshadow TDG all the time. Linkin Park is mediocre but their not that good.

The Contenders

11 Hysteria - Muse Hysteria - Muse Cover Art

Common, Muse is the best band from the 2000's

This song should be number 1

That bassline! That epic chorus! Its fantastic.

The bassline.
The guitar.
The drum.

Amazing.

12 Awake and Alive - Skillet Awake and Alive - Skillet Cover Art

Can't believe this song wasn't even in the list. This is the best alt rock song till date. John and ledger's voices, the lyrics and the instruments, please guys try listening to this song... It's just too good

Amazing song. The lyrics and instruments used are just superb. It's the best alt rock song I've heard till date I. E 2014

His best rock album, nothing comes close to this one.

One of My Chemical Romance's greatest
