I like fonts like Franklin, Trade and News Gothic a lot. But i think they are all used to much.
Do you know some fresh Alternatives.
National, Parry Grotesque, the up coming Capone from CakeType.com
Skopex Gothic is an outstanding take
Benton Sans, a real workhorse, and to me, kind of the terminus of those lines of typographic thought.
Trevor - thanks for your contribution but you'll notice Benton is mentioned above.
An alternate to Franklin, News and Trade Gothic? Perhaps Alternate Gothic?
Bah dum shhh!
Nice lists. Thanks, all!
Here's Bulldog (it's no longer available from Creative Alliance, only direct from Club Type, the source foundry). See also this list at FontShop.
Wow, 2 years old. While we're at it:
Brown Gothic 1 and 2BulldogMonotype Grotesque
Capone is renamed to Eminio (the brother of Al Capone), because there already is a Capone Light from Monotype.
Thanks for mentioning!
Sorry, it’s named Erminio.
Pieter, thank you for the correction. :-)
I love your work, especially the KPN designs.
Whitney has a very similar feel to News Gothic:
In this vein, I've long admired Mario Feliciano's Grotzec, but I haven't had occasion to license it or try it out.
Wow, 2 years old.
And forward two years more...
While we're at it:
Brown Gothic 1 and 2
Thanks, Stephen. Bullbog is MiA, but both Brown and Grotesque look delicious.
Any new suggestions, perhaps? :)

You're exactly right. They are overused. Geoff lists some good, underplayed alternatives. Also:
