Great Alternative Metal... What Happened?

"Alternative Metal" seems to have become a dirty term in music these days, essentially referring to uninspired, mainstream hard rock bands with down-tuned guitars and whiny vocals. It used to be a genre where metal bands who didn't fit the standard heavy metal mold could experiment with unusual influences and complex time signatures, while still having powerful instrumentation. What bands do you know of that seem to be part of what alternative metal used to be about? List is some albums that I consider to be the best in the genre
