Top 10 Songs to Get You Into Alternative Rock/ Metal

These are songs to get you or someone else into Alt. Rock/ Metal. Your opinion might be different than mine and I respect that.

The Top Ten

1 The Pretender - Foo Fighters

Pretty good for Alt. Rock beginners.

2 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

It's a good song but slightly overrated.

3 It's Been Awhile - Staind

This song is mellow yet the same thing I would classify it as good alt. Rock.

4 Blurry - Puddle of Mudd

Yeah listen to the lyrics and you'll see why it's so ranked high.

5 Given Up - Linkin Park

And no this song isn't Nu Metal when MTM came out LP went for more of a expermintaive sound I would classify this also as alt. rock.

6 Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace

Very good song, one of my favorite of TDG, but I think it'll be little bit of heavy/noisy for beginners. in my opinion. - zxm

7 Fine Again - Seether

Not bad for alt. rock beginners.

8 Nothing Could Come Between Us - Theory of a Deadman
