The best new alternative albums of 2020 have all the power chords, palm muting, and skater kid aesthetic you could want. The hottest alternative rock of 2020 is a mix of classic artists returning to form and new bands breaking through with powerful statements and even more powerful music.

Both new alternative artists appear on this list of 2020 albums as well as classic alternative acts and top indie bands, like of Montreal and Pinegrove, who have returned with new albums to make older millennials remember what life felt like when they were younger millennials. Even Weezer will be back in the fold with yet another album (Van Weezer), just in case there are any '90s emo kids in need of a boost.
