102 Collective Soul Collective Soul Collective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia. Now based in Atlanta, the group consists of lead vocalist Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett.

They make the real alternative band. Have you heard their song, "when the water falls"? It's just amazing. They deserve to be in top ten. Else I decline the entire list

103 Biffy Clyro

Exfellent, just wonderful and unique and if they stay on 101 there's really something wrong with these charts

What WHAT Why is Billy Talent on 98th?

Billy Talent are exceptional. Its embarrasing that half the bands in this list are not even Alternative E.G. korn, Disturbed, Nine Inch Nails.

It is one of the most unusual alternative band I have ever heard. Their compositions are just unique filled with amazing variations. They make real music. Listen their songs like scarecrow, under heaven's skies, summertime, disenchanted etc. You will definitely say that they are the best. They deserve to be in top 5... Come on frank. Think and vote

I am disgusted that such a life-changing band is number 90! Without a doubt, My Chemical Romance deserve a spot up there next to Nirvana, godamnit! My Chemical Romance saved LIVES. They have given people purpose and given themselves purpose and affected the world we live in today and I am angered that they have been so dismissed as to have been placed so low down the list. The music is amazing, meaningful and moving. I can't say that about any other band other that Nirvana. For shame!

94th?!?! My Chemical Romance is absolutely amazing, and they have give strong emotional feelings in their songs that a lot of people can relate to.

Um what My Chemical Romance is one of the best bands of all time - YOUnique253
