I don't really know how most people don't even know about Audioslave. I think that Chris Cornell as a vocalist and Morrelo on the guitar, they should at least be in the top 10.

25 Bush Bush Bush are a British rock band formed in London, England in 1992. The band found their immediate success with the release of their debut album Sixteen Stone in 1994, which is certified 6× multi-platinum by the RIAA.
26 Dinosaur Jr. Dinosaur Jr. Dinosaur Jr. is an American rock band formed in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1984, originally simply called Dinosaur until legal issues forced a change in name.

Most people do not know they started in the 80's. They were also trailblazers like Sonic Youth. I recommend the album Your're living all over Me or their self entitled album.

27 Staind Staind Staind was a heavy metal band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995. ...read more.
28 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

No man, this isn't right. at least they should be in top 10. Just listen to their songs like Radioactive, Bleeding out, Demons and many more.

Imagine Dragons and Linkin Park are my favourite bands. I love the music anf the lyrics!

I understand that Imagine Dragons are just Nr. 31, because they're not so long in the music buisness but I know for sure that in 10 years they will be in the top 5.

Sweet jams

29 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

I personally think that Nickelback should without a doubt be in the top 10. Their music's main sound revolves around grunge music. I'm a guy who LOVES grunge music, and Nickelback! I base my music around a few main grunge bands. One being Nickelback, and the other who are and should be on this list: Daughtry, Theory of a Deadman, Art of Dying, and Three Days Grace. But that's just my oppinion.

Not exactly what I'd call grudge..
But anyways their pretty cool, by far its my 2nd favorite band (next to linkin park)
These guys deserve better

Should be in top 10 not down here in 19 :L it's a bit off a joke isn't is thoe they should be higher I ain't going to lie. Other good bands in my opinion are Breaking Benjamin, 3DG, crossfade, Adelitas way (not very popular but they are awesome), Daughtry, Downstait, Papa roach, sick puppies. Those are all I can think off that I like

I don't know why they're on the list. Sure their music sounds good but all they ever talk about is drugs, sex, And strippers in their songs. I don't wanna listen to that.

30 Seether Seether Seether are a South African hard rock band founded in May 1999 in Pretoria, South Africa. The band originally performed under the name Saron Gas until 2002, when they adopted the Seether name.

I think Seether is the most underrated music in the world. They have carried on what Nirvana and Pearl Jam started, and they are just so good. The metal, and the not metal, and Shaun Morgan has an amazing voice, so yeah they totally deserve to be on here

Seether is OBVIOUSLY the best here! There vocalist Shaun Morgan has the ABSOLUTE BEST voice outta all these chumps EXCEPT Kurt Cobain but Seether's instruments are the best 2!

Far and away the best post grunge band (nirvana, Pearl Jam, soundgarden considered grunge). Vastly overrated. Intelligent lyrics, emotional flexibility, soulful riffs, cathy beats. They're best songs are some of the hardest songs to burn out.

I think they have to be the best alternative band out there from the lyrics to the instruments. Of course I agree with all the bands above being on top for the exception of 8-16.

32 Candlebox
33 Puddle of Mudd Puddle of Mudd Puddle of Mudd is an American rock band formed in 1991. To date, the band has sold over seven million albums and has had a string of No.

Great sound, great & catchy songs from the dirty post-grunge preachers from Kansas - soundwise and musically top rated in my opinion.

35 Cage the Elephant

I know they may not be considered grunge, but for all of the modern bands on here, it should be way higher.

36 Live Live Live is an American rock band from York, Pennsylvania, composed of Chad Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer, Chad Gracey, and Chris Shinn. Live's original lead singer Ed Kowalczyk left the band in November 2009.

One of the best bands in the 90's to come out post nirvana, pearl jam etc...

They are just perfect

System of a down has really spellbinding rhytms and lyrics, their music quality is one of the best for me. They should be in top 5 minimum

39 The White Stripes The White Stripes The White Stripes are an American rock duo, formed in 1997 in Detroit, Michigan. The duo consists of only a couple married at the time, Jack White, whose real name was Jack Gillis (songwriter, lead vocalist, guitarist, bassist and keyboardist) and Meg White (drummer and backing vocalist).

They are in the blues category, but many people today can only name Icky Thump. I reccomend their self titled debut album. The White Stripes

Too good to be this far down the list
