Best Alternative Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Come as You Are - Nirvana

Come as you are at 72 :-( so bad

This song I believe is in the top 3 of nirvana and is right up there with smells like teen spirit.

Must be in the top tens! Its really good

122 From Yesterday - 30 Seconds to Mars

I can't BELÄ°EVE... Jared is awesome

123 Stolen Car - Beth Orton
124 Lateraulus - Tool

Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal song in the past 20 years. This is Tool's best song. When they Sign a contract with iTunes I will buy a 50 dollar card and buy every single Tool album. So hurry up! If I get this song on my iPod, I will be in heaven!

Incredible song. Nuff Said

125 Jeremy - Pearl Jam

Come on. How is this song not in the top 10?!? And also, how is nickelback ahead of pearl jam?!?!? What

126 Dollhouse - Melanie Martinez

Melanie is definitely one of the best alternative artists ever! Why isn't this song higher on the list?

Why isn't this higher? Vote for Melanie!

! This song should be on number one! Or any other of her songs!

How is this 133...?

127 Unbelievable - Emf
128 Kings and Queens - 30 Seconds to Mars

Just amazing... Mind blaster

One of the best 30 Seconds to Mars song... You can't imagine... Just feel

Close your eyes and let the goosebumps take over!

129 It's My Life - Jon Bon Jovi

No one can listen to this just once. Bon Jovi reinvents to new generation of audience and how.A timeless classic.

130 Uprising - Muse

One of their greatest songs and an anthem of civil change. Amazing rock sound. The opening song of their massive Resistance tour is meant to be heard loud. Undeniably catchy and will be one their defining songs.

Best song ever, it is AMAZING 'a fat cats had a heart attack' :D

Way better than most of the other songs and is actually alternative not alt rock

This has to be the one...

131 Metalingus - Alter Bridge
132 Breathe Into Me - Red
133 Drift and Die - Puddle of Mudd
134 Bulls on Parade - Rage Against the Machine

Really good song it's just a bummer that it is 120!

135 Say It Ain't So - Weezer

I hate humanity. I don't even have faith in the world anymore

Really?! This should easily be in the top ten!

136 3's & 7's - Queens of the Stone Age
137 Crawling in the Dark - Hoobastank
138 Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam

This song was never released as a single.. A gift for all concert goers, if it had been, it would be top of the list

139 New Divide - Linkin Park

This list is incorrect, New Divide should be number 1 in the list. Chester's vocals rocks and Brad Delson also has a great guitar riffs for alternative rock. That is why this song should be in the Top Yens. By the way, this song came from the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack

Maybe the best song I've heard, mean much for me, just love it

Should be at top 20 AT LEAST! LP was still at their finest when made this... It's so unique, energic and calm at sametime.
