142 Cheap Trick Cheap Trick Cheap Trick is an American rock band from Rockford, Illinois, formed in 1973. As of 2010, the band currently consists of Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson and Daxx Nielsen.
143 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

This band is the definition of rock. Lifehouse? 3 doors down? Nickelback? Those bands are not even rock. Chevelle puts a new album out every two years and they just get better every time. Listen to Pinata on the new album. Then the rest of the album you will see what I'm saying.

I'm sorry just because your throwing a fit about your band does NOT mean you have the right to talk trash about bands such as three doors down and nickle back now shut up get over it!

They've had a ton of fantastic releases in the 2000s. Also a string of number one tracks on the modern rocks charts - The Red, Send the Pain Below, Jars, Letter From a Thief.

This band should easily be in the top ten! Three doors down and nickelback suck!

145 Staind Staind Staind was a heavy metal band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995. ...read more.

Amazing band Aaron's voice is simply amazing and he has written some of the best lyrics I have ever heard, every album is different but still amazing very underrated in my opinion...

Times have changed now. Hope they come out of hiatus to have a Greatest Hits album, at least. They are one amazing band, who I adore.

Staind's newer music may be softer and repetitive, but their older and newest album should be up in the ranks of the top 20 at least.

THIS BAND SHOULD BE TOP 10 WHAT IN THE WORLD

BEEN AROUND FOR OVER 30 YEARS NOT MANY STILL STAY TOGETHER ESPECIALLY AFTER ALL THE THINGS LIFE CAN THROW AT YOU AND MORE...

These guys belong on the list. They aren't very well known but they're music and lyrics are absolutely amazing. This list isn't very accurate, although I am big fan of Linkin Park.

Right, the list is way off, my favorites are after top 40, 100, and even 150

My favorite band, but not qualified to be a top 10 alternative rock, but they perform incredibly and have better lyrics than any band I can think of and they could definitely be qualifief for top 150 I-/

154 Bloc Party

Number 192? Really!? Has anyone listened to their music? Grossly underrated! Four cd's and a slew of singles make this band premier in my book. Just listen to Silent Alarm and Intimacy, then A Weekend in the City and lastly, Four. You will not be disappointed. Prepare yourself for a mental and aural holiday!

A couple of great albums. I had them on in my car all the time back in the 00s. They were really popular.

Come on way way higher... Great riffs

155 Wilco

THIS IS SAD! Bring em higher please. My favorites (Arcade Fire and Radiohead) were kind of tempting to vote for, but I can't let this one drift behind.

158 Royal Blood Royal Blood Royal Blood are an English rock duo formed in Brighton, East Sussex, in 2013. The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in modern blues rock, hard rock, garage rock and psychedelic rock.

They shouldn't be on this list because it's for the 2000's and they weren't around then... But then the best stuff red hot chili peppers did wasn't in the 2000s so I'll vote for these guys anyway as they remind me of the white stripes ( but not as good because white stripes should be top 3 or possible first) but if we're doing the millenium these guys should be top 10 in my opinion

"Little Monster". "Out Of The Black". "Figure it Out". That's all there is to say really. great song. Probably the best that I've heard that is accepted by the mainstream rock system in a long time. didn't sell out as far as over production. good lyrics. great album. simple yet effective. great "band", if you can call a 2 piece that

BEST EVER! Can't believe there is no guitar!

160 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

An incredibly versatile band capable of creating rock that is both complex and accessible. They have their own signature sound and style that has garnered them a true cult following that is growing with the continuing success of Steven Wilson's excellent solo career.

Fantastic progressive, hard, crunchy, amazing band. Steven Wilson is an amazing songwriter, who has surrounded himself with amazing musicians to take his creations to the limit. Oh, he also plays a mean guitar.

Versatile, talented, beautiful, epic! This is the band I was looking for all my life. They also revived prog rock into a relevant state again they're that good.
