21 Candlebox

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.

22 Finger Eleven
23 Grey Daze

First band of Linkin Park's vocalist Chester.

Any band with Chester Bennington is good - donovanthorn

24 Crossfade Crossfade Crossfade is an American hard rock band originating from Columbia, South Carolina. Their current members are Ed Sloan on lead vocals and guitar, Les Hall on lead guitar, keyboard, and backing vocals, and Mitch James on backing vocals and bass.

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!

25 Goo Goo Dolls Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.

They have the song iris. That's better than any garbage band garbage

Are you kidding? These guys should be on the top!

26 Godsmack Godsmack Godsmack is an American rock band from Lawrence, Massachusetts, formed in 1995. The band is composed of founder, frontman and songwriter Sully Erna, guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill, and drummer Shannon Larkin.

They're great I wish they were post-grunge after all Layne Staley was a hero and influence to Sully Erna so maybe he carries a little grunge in him I don't really know I can't tell

Godsmack should be number one - hands down. They cut their teeth on the greats of grunge and IMPROVED it, making it their own. Erna is legit! Even his solo albums blow this list away!

Godsmack are sick! Definitely deserve to be in the top ten

I don't understand people. One of the main reasons people didn't like them is people thought they were a rip off AIC, which in fact is hands down the best grunge band ever, but now everones questioning if they're postgrunge? Makes sense. And by the way heitfield blows anyway, he's a money hungry d bag - Toothgrinder

28 Them Cooked Vultures
29 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.

Throwing Copper is a great album but the rest isn't very good.

30 Trapt Trapt Trapt is an American rock band that formed in Los Gatos, California in 1995, best known for their 2002 single "Headstrong".
31 Egypt Central

I think puddle of mudd and foo fighter should be in the top 2 but I mean come on this band should at lest be in the top 10 hell I think it needs to be in the top 5

First saw them when they opened for disturbed almost 10 years ago. Still remains my favorite band of all time!

32 Matchbox 20

Matchbox 20 only used post-grunge only once on their first record Yourself or Someone Like You they're pretty much average, their two songs push and long day are pretty much post-grunge material but a little too much softpop or something they're not like Foo Fighters or breaking Benjamin or puddle of mudd or silverchair or smile empty soul or bush I still like them but only their first record Yourself or Someone Like You was the only post-grunge they used

My all time favorite music group. Matchbox 20 is simply amazing. Some of my favorite songs consists of; Overjoyed, Push, and Back 2 Good. I love this band so much, It should be rated number 1

Matchbox twenty is number two on my list. They are the second best band ever! Rob Thomas, his voice quality is amazing. He writes almost all his songs, and sounds just as perfect live as he does on the CD. Tabitha's Secret is also amazing because he sings in it. They are number three.

Matchbox twenty isn't even post grudge. The fact that their even on here makes them special

These guys are nu metal, not post-grunge.

34 RED RED Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

These guys, Decyfer Down, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Chevelle, and Thirty Seconds To Mars are my jam when it comes to post-grunge. - AngryByrd

Man what a band. Every song is a gem. I have each and every album of them!

Come on just listen to their songs Feed the machine and faceless you'll know why they should be #1

There not as good as bands like puddle of mudd or seethe but there still a great bad and have song for what ever mood your - donovanthorn

Just another Nickelback (as if we needed another Nickelback)

36 The Pretty Reckless

One of the few post-grunge bands with actual musical talent and Taylor Momsen's voice is like a grunge-y voice from heaven--though she probably wouldn't appreciate that comparison much :D

38 Hoobastank Hoobastank Hoobastank is an American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California with lead singer Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen.
