Presenting ListSalad’s very first play-list! The following ten songs are the greatest alternative hits from 2010 and beginning of the current year. As it wouldn’t be fair to your listening buds to only let your eyes feast upon the album covers of 2010’s greatest play-list, we proudly feature the completely free, full versions of every song. This is not a list of songs published in 2010, featured songs are judged by Itunes sales in a given year, radio plays, billboard charts, and likability. So sit back, crank your speakers up and enjoy the most memorable alternative melodies of the recent year passed.
#10 Gives You Hell – The All-American Rejects
This song has been out since 2008, and it has maintained it’s status on the billboard charts. It’s an energy inspiring song that deserves the status of being on this top list.
#9 Jumper – Third Eye Blind (2006 Version)
First released in 1997, this song doesn’t seem to want to go away.
#8 Uprising – Muse
Dark, sarcastic tone poetry combined with equally dark music and presentation, this song has seen 17 weeks at #1 on top alternative billboard charts since it’s release in 2009.
#7 Sweet Disposition – Temper Trap
This is one of those situations where a great, new song is re-discovered through a motion picture soundtrack. Featured in a movie 500 Days of Summer.
#6 The Ballad Of Mona Lisa – Panic! at the Disco
#5 Hey There Delilah – Plain White T’s
This sincere poetry has maintained top Alternative status since it’s release in 2005, up till now.
#4 Animal – Neon Trees
This is the first top song for the Neon Trees, and is very deserved.
#3 The Only Exception – Paramore
History is made when Paramore sings a few simple words every man wants to hear.
#2 The Cave – Mumford And Sons
This song sounds like a great sonnet of the ages, that gets stuck in the memory and just refuses to leave.
#1 Waiting For The End – Linkin Park
Linkin Park’s greatest creation to date. Completely re-imagined in the way the band sounds and feels. 100% worthy of the number one spot.
