Best Alternative Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Feel Good Inc. - Gorillaz

Why aren't there any more Gorillaz songs on here?. Feel Good Inc. experiments many genres such as pop, rock, jazz, and rap and transitions seamlessly. Its vocals are expertly performed. It goes as part of a timeline. It's a good gateway song into alternative music. What's not to love about this?

Underrated on this list... Though it may be confusing it has a big message to it.

What this doing in 104, it was top in England at one point, it was the high point of an album that received platinum, Why is this so underrated? this is arguably my favorite song of all time.

102 Ship to Wreck - Florence + the Machine
103 The Catalyst - Linkin Park

Wow... this song is just awesome... my favorite Linkin Park song, just love it. Creepy electronics, realist and meaning lyrics and a good rhithym, perfect.

104 Misery Business - Paramore

One of the best songs ever! Way too good to be 68th :/

This song doesn't deserve this spot.

105 Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers

A great song by one of the greatest Alternative bands of all time. This song peaked at #1 on 13 of 16 international music charts. In the video the band poses for many "One Minute Sculptures" an idea from Austrian artist Erwin Wurm. - Paragor34

I don't understand why this song is way down at 65! It should at least be in the top 10! This song is amazing! All Red Hot Chili Peppers songs are the best! I love Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Evanescence, ALL ALTERNATIVE! But this song should so be at the top! It is the best Alternative Rock ever! Come on Music Luvers! This song is the best! Vote for Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers! I Love Dani California as well! Can't stop! Can't stop listening to it al all! LISTEN TO THIS PEOPLEZ

Can't stop listing to this track, deserve to be in top 15. - Stu21

One of the best songs of three days grace
