I voted for Bullet For My Valentine because I couldn't find anything better here, I think the best hc band is UNDERMINDED, but no offense I haven't been listening to HC a lot so...

6The Devil Wears PradaThe Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.
8Parkway Drive
9Rise AgainstRise Against is an American melodic hardcore band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes.

Since the list is for hardcore bands then rise against all the way. I think that people are confusing the title of the list and that's why they a listing metalcore and deathcore. If this list was just for bands with hardcore influences then I'd vote asking Alexandria.

the guy who this list wasn't right, I think REAL hardcore bands are bands like Rise Against, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, The Casualties, Hatebreed...... the other bands (in the list) are metalcore or deathcore bands - rock2metal
