68 Are You Ready - Three Days Grace
69 But It's Better If You Do - Panic! At the Disco

Hmm... That's odd, they misspelled #1...
Just can't believe that there aren't that many Panic! At the Disco songs. What a disappointment...

! I love this song! This should be on top, but why aren't there more panic! songs?

70 Awake and Alive - Skillet

SKillet can pretty much kill any other of these bands on this list. They're songs are thought out and better than the metal on the list. Long live Skillet!

This is part of my theme songs for my SCP Characters. See
VIRUS:Awake and Alive

71 I Wanna Be Adored - The Stone Roses
72 Far Away - Nickelback

I'm risking my vote but I hate nickel back

Great song that anyone can relate to

The best song in the whole world

Such a heartfelt song that many of us can relate to even if we haven't loved yet.

73 Paranoid Android - Radiohead

Paranoid Android at 76? It is not just the greatest alternative song but also one of the greatest songs of all time. Should be at no. 1.

Why this masterpiece is in 80 place? is definitely a lot better than 101st. It is definitely top 5

Why is this song so low? go listen to some real music not TØP garbage

74 From the Inside - Linkin Park
75 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

Definitely deserves a Top 10 spot.

No 70? Seriously? This should be in top 20 at least. Best song by Green Day after Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

So much emotion goes into this song

An unforgettable Green Day song

76 Today - Smashing Pumpkins

Still their best song. Today is the greatest!

At 67! waht is wrong with the earth! - Toucan

77 Country Song - Seether
78 Breath - Breaking Benjamin

This song makes you believe in yourself. Trust yourself, do what you believe is right and don't let anybody else put you down.

79 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers

I hadn't realized that alt music had become emo-pop. This is one of the best alternative songs of the 90's, and deserves way higher placing than Linkin Park (who have made borderline catchy songs, but in no way deserve any place higher than 200)

Is the best alternative song of all time, its simply! The lyrics, the notes in the guitar, the supreme bass, and the drumms of chad its the perfect complement for a perfect song in all tim!

Whoever created this list really needs to re-evaluate it because, this song let alone band should totally be ranked much higher than 80!

Deserves to be in the top 15
