What are the best rock/alternative bands (unique and current)?

What are some CURRENT (they still make new songs) rock/alternative bands that are really unique sounding? They can have electric, metal, punk elements. Basically any rock/alternative band that sounds really good and is not extremely well known.

Name your top 5.

Thanks!

    Definitely Motionless In White. They combined elements of Metalcore, Industrial Metal and Alternative Metal to make their own unique sound...

    Basically, if you could imagine taking The Smiths, The Cure, The Misfits, AFI, Marilyn Manson, Cradle Of Filth, SlipKnoT, KoRn and Linkin Park and putting them all into a blender, what you'd come up with would be Motionless In White.

    I haven't found anyone else in a while who are as interesting as this band.
