Alt metal? STP is very under appreciated, but probably more alternative hard rock than metal.

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

Not a 90's band.
The group's first work didn't release until 2001. - BloodyThunderX

47 In Flames In Flames In Flames is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, formed in 1990. ...read more.

If anything, these guys had to be one of the top ten bands. Back in the day, their style was something that no band after could imitate. Just something that only they knew how to do best. Alongside At The Gates and Dark Tranquillity, these guys helped put Gothenburg on the map. Nowadays, they're one of the most notable metal bands in the world because just like in the 90's, In Flames continues to move forward, mature and create something new with each album, not caring about what hecklers and closed-minded metal elitists have to say. They're definitely a band worth checking out. New or old, they continue to grow and develop into something new.

Jeff's guitar playing is just pure ridiculousness, Warrel's baritone vocals kick ass, Van's drumming is godly and Jim is a Bass player (but a damn good one). In terms of composition and creativity, I think they became one of the best in the late 90's.

56 Madball
57 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

Though many haters, this band undoubtedly has talent. Almost as innovative as their nu-metal fathers, Korn, they rocked it then. They're better than Slipknot, Linkin Park, and many other overrated bands.

This is the stupidest comment ever.

58 Dead Horse
