Best Post Grunge BandssamuelMCL7
The Top Ten
Breaking Benjamin is a great band, I'll say that much, but Foo Fighters take the cake for best post-grunge band by a longshot. When Dave came off the Nirvana scene and headed to his own solo project, it was life-changing and revolutionary. He didn't realize he created a band with soon to be anthems such as Everlong, Monkey Wrench, Best of You, and Learn to Fly. Theyve countlessly sold millions of outstanding records, have amazing shows, great music, hell, theyve sold out Wembley for Christ's sake! A damn good band, 20 years strong, and still kickin' serious ass and taking names today! - Boi
Foo Fighters are my all time favourite band and they deserve to be number 1 because Dave Grohl was just genius to write all these songs especially Everlong.
Why not? Dave Grohl deserves props for being able to go from a drummer to a guitarist and lead singer in the space of two years
Nickelback should not even be on the list.V 15 Comments
You will never get a band greater than Breaking Benjamin. There songs are epic and you can rock out to EVERYONE of their songs. Breaking Benjamin is the absolute best that their ever is
Definitely the greatest Post-Grunge in my opinion! Breaking Benjamin has a great array of Nu-Metal/Grunge songs such as "Water" and "Home", but also surprises their fans with mellow soft tunes such as "Forget It" and "Rain".
It's the best band ever! I love that band so much!
These guys have gotten me through a lot of tough times, they have made a great influence on my art and have been the subject of bonding between my girlfriend and I (we've been dating for one year and going to two years as I type this).
I just gotta say Breaking Benjamin is the one band that will always hold a special place in my hear.
Ben if you are reading this, thank you so much.
Seether is lead by Shaun Morgan, who has one of the greatest voices I have ever heard. Too add to that, Seether can shine as a band in many different ways, be it the Heavy metal sound, or the Grunge sound, or the punk sound, or even, believe it or not, they have a few great acoustic songs. Take Broken for example. Also, for Grunge, Fine Again has risen to the top of many lists, while Like Suicide remains great with Metal, and Six Gun Quota is a nice Punk song, great change of pace for Seether.
Seether is amazing, they have many excellent songs. There are very few bands that can put the same level of emotion in their music like seether, the songs that they are probably best known for, broken and fine again, are perfect examples of this
This band deserves more recognition, and not just as a showy charade of nirvana. They do sound similar in certain aspects, but seether has got their own unique style and breath taking energy that only they possess, and you gotta respect that.
Great band with consistency throughout their discography. Morgan is one of the most underrated writers of his generation and has an infectious way of combining heavy music with melodic hooks that no one else in the genre has seemed to capture.V 8 Comments
The REAL Three Days Grace (it's not the same without Adam) is the best band ever! The lyrics of their songs are touching your soul, the voice of Adam goes under your skin and... Wait, why are you still reading this? Go and listen to them, you won't regret it, trust me.
Pretty awesome band. One of my favorites.
Come on, so far this is the only real post grunge band on this list. Foo Fighters is grunge not post grunge breaking Benjamin is more of a alt metal / hard rock type and seether is somewhat hard rock type
All of Three Days Grace's songs are awesome.V 20 Comments
Staind should at least take Puddle of Mudd's current list rank of 5th place right here, right now. As much of theirs songs are grandly popular, some are mostly characterized as less meaningful and just for rocky kicks and ones as the opposite only on the least occasions. As someone had said best, they're "mediocre at best'. I'll admit that I listened to most of their songs (I even have one of their albums too), but as much as some of the songs were good and enjoyable that you could experience different fuzzy emotions from them, their conventional themes blended in with their musical genres are old and bland. What's more, Wes Scantlin, the band's singer, is dragging a lot of attention to his crazy, controversy-worthy antics that spoil opportunities for his band to continue their way of living, making new music material, releasing new albums, touring around the country to sold-out shows and venues, and all the more enjoying the perks of their success more than enduring the throes ...more
This band is the worst of the butt-rock bands that have been plaguing rock. This band hasn't done one thing that's original, and most of their songs are mediocre at best. They're just another band trying to be Nirvana and failing at it miserably. In addition, the singer has lip-synced in some concerts. The band's music sucks and they aren't a good live act, so they shouldn't be at number five or even in this list.
I like 3 days grace but there's no way there better then Puddle of mudd if only they got the recognition they deserve because they were one of the best band of the 2000's in any genre and made one of the best songs of all time in Blurry
More like Puddle of Dudd, Crud, Cudd, etc. If there are any others, type them in the comments. Now, let's vote up good bands up to this spot, please...V 10 Comments
What it's on 2nd it should placed t no. 1
I prefer shinedown over nickelback, and I wish that shinedown was on this list, but I think nickelback is right around where it should be on this list.
Nickelback is ass and a disgrace to the entire music industry. Any one who likes them should be banned from voicing opinions.
Worst band ever.V 14 Comments
Bush is an awesome post grunge band and Gavin Rossdale has a great grunge voice compared to Kurt Cobain but with a British twist
Not sure people know what post grunge is since bush is number 12
Bush is amazing, definitely should be at least number four.
Post grunge sucks. However, this band is awesomeV 2 Comments
Aww come on guys! Shinedown is awesome! There aren't enough people looking at this page if Shinedown is all the way down at #14!
Some others that should be much higher that share Shinedown's case (but aren't necessarily as good as Shinedown) are:
Godsmack (although they might be a bit more metal than post-grunge)
Theory of a Deadman (although I do agree that their last album was in fact horrible)
THIS BAND REALLY ROCKS. It would be my third favourite band - after Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin - and then there comes Seether. But this band is really awesome, it's really worth listening to them. I wish the world could recognize them.
Now don't get me wrong I love Seether and Three Days Grace but this band plays music better than any other not to mention they do great cover songs such as times like these and one.
Best band since their debut.V 7 Comments
Frogstomp is FAULTLESS, only criticised for their ages (14) and by people making comparisons because they are too lazy to listen to the music. Freak Show is the perfect follow up. Neon Ballroom showcases Daniel's vocal range, although most wouldn't call it rock or grunge, it is still a great album. Diorama is okay, not Silverchair at their finest, and no-one really counts Young Modern anyway.
Silverchair is a great band, from start to end. You just have to acknowledge that just as people grow up an evolve, so does their (musical) expressions. Everyone of their albums are great, from Frogstomp to Young Modern. Daniel Johns is a great music genius and even now that his solo project is light years apart from that grunge sound, is still great music.
They are such an inspirational band producing their first album while still at high school. Their music is sensational but it's a shame that the band broke up a few years ago.
All their albums are great. The first 2 are grunge, the rest not. Hard to pick a personal favourite. I love them all.V 4 Comments
Staind is the only band I know that can do heavy metal, and you cans still understand them. Aaron Lewis has a very beautiful unique voice. But the guy from breaking Benjamin sounds the same as many other post grudge and alternative bands
Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace aren't even post-grunge. Staind should have the title as best of post-grunge.
Definitely post grunge and Aaron Lewis has that great post grunge voice of a poet
Good harmony along with great vocalistV 7 Comments
Very good lyrics. Their lyrics have feeling and they deserve a bit higher place.
Best writers on the list. 3 Doors Down has the best lyrics of this list.
3 Doors Down are an awesome and and deserve to be higher then some of the other bands on here for their masterful way of capturing emotion in their songsp
Nickelback is overrated -.-V 4 Comments
Creed brings back memories of my childhood. I remember listening to them a lot when I was a kid. They should be ranked higher then 14, I would rank them top 5.
Creed should be number 1 I still pop in Human Clay every week
Creed deserves to be much higher! There too 5 in my opinion
How are they 33?! They deserve better than that
What!? Number 40th? This is an outrage
These guys are awesome! RATM with Chris Cornell really works!
One of my favourite Bands,
Come on have you ever heared:
Like a Stone
That awesome voice
Wow, shame they are ranked so low. Sunburn and Something like Human were great full albums, not just the hit singles. And agree, they were a really great live band as well. Lead vocals are powerful.
They have consistently churned out some of the best post grunge albums since they first hit the scene. The deep cuts on every album could be singles. Listen to These Things and tell me that isn't a great song... or Bittersweet, Sunburn, or Mary Pretends before judging them solely off of Shimmer, Falls on Me and of course Hemmorage which are all great songs as well. They also have some good heavier songs, such as Untitled, Empty Spaces, Last Time, Jesus or a Gun. Definelty seem to have a strong Stone Temple Pilots influence in my opinion.
This band is kick ass. Should be in Top 5!
Yeah, Fuel rocked!V 4 Comments
Collective Soul deserves to be a lot higher on this list. Their ability to successfully vary dynamics, true ballads to hard rock, and to expand beyond basic post-grunge sounds is very underappreciated whenever great bands of the 90s are reckoned, and they've kept making music since. Foo Fighters may have maintained commercial success, but musically I've always been a bigger fan of CS. - Fel6x
One of the best bands of 90s & 00s
This band is amazing! The Workd I Know is a very heartfelt song while shine is a great grunge track! - dragon13304
Nothing even comes close to this band!
All those who are not voting them are fools. They have one of the best vocalists and this gen's greatest guitarist in the world! Listen to any of their song
You dudes that haven't vote for AB, the solo guitar playing in blackbird track, has been chosen to be the best solo performances in history, by guitarist magazine
Blackbird. Enough said!V 14 Comments
Meaningful songs and an untouchable aggression pours out from this band. They need to be higher.
Best post grunge ever
Better than most post grunge bands- if you'd call them post grunge
One of the beSt bands ever! -Matthew
Candlebox's first album alone beats all the other bands on this list, I however consider Candlebox grunge, they came out of Seattle and released their first album (self-titled) in 1993, not even a full year after the release of Stone Temple Pilots' Core and Alice in Chains' Dirt.
They're awesome especially the way they represent post-grunge with so much emotion and strength
Crossfade is awesome totally a great post grunge band with a great emotional touch
Definitely has a great Post Grunge Feel!
Good sound with aggressive guitar tone!V 1 Comment
They have the song iris. That's better than any garbage band garbage
Are you kidding? These guys should be on the top!
