The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen (Rock)
2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana (Alternative)

Though it's a signature song of this genre but there are hundreds thousands other better alternative rock songs than this (from my point of view) - zxm

Not the best alternative song but certainly the most iconic. - Martinglez
