The Top Ten

Asking Alexandria
I love the sound that this band is making.. They totally rock this world! They are so amazing.. Actually they are my idols.. Just keep it up! Stay cool..
They make such good music they should be number 2 or even number 1! I love how Danny could scream low and then go all high!
This band has the most unique sound... Best Band Ever I mean come on how could you not like this band... All day err day
[Newest]Their new singer is really good and possibly made the band just a little better but no matter what this band will always be #1

2Bring Me the Horizon
All time best screamo band ever, the vocals of Oliver Sykes is just too hard to beat, especially in their album Count Your Blessings, and the song Pray For Plagues
Their singer must be the best screamer I've ever heard. And there's so much catchy riffs and everything!

Awesome best band I ever heard I head the come down first and ever since I've been hooked. I love this band so much they are my new favorite band ever now keep making amazing songs guys xP!
[Newest]Best screamo band that I have listened to and oli sykes is so amazing I love every single one of them in this band 👌🏼

3Pierce The Veil
BEST SHOULD BE #1! I think they are the best band alive. They should not be #21. They are too good for that. Way to cool for 21. They are so hot. Each one of them. Overall They are a great band and need more concerts! Vic Fuentes has one of the most beautiful voices ever. Its so natural. They don't use an auto tune at all which is good. Listen to their music. They are the best.
The number one band that got me into rock even. Vic has the BEST voice out there. I don't care what others say he has such a beautiful voice that even makes a song that isn't so great SUPER AWESOME! I always melt every time I hear his voice.
I'm in love with him!
Pierce the veil is the best they deserve number 1 spot! But asking alexandria is competition for with them but pierce the veil will always come out on top for sure!
[Newest]They are far too good. Like I've literally watched king for a day about 30 times in the last 3 days and I'm dying because they're so good

So freaking amazing! I love all their music and I enjoy listening to their more mellow songs too. I love their voices and BFMV for the win
I frigging love these guys they are by far my most favourite band ever :) I love every one of their songs especially their songs from Scream Aim & Fire and Fever XD WAKING THE DEMON FOR THE WINN!
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE is the band which is my life, my world, my religion... I can't live without their songs. All three albums are amazing you can't describes in words, that why I love them m/
[Newest]You want a battle? HERE'S A WAR!

5Black Veil Brides
Black Veil Brides is one of my favorite bands ever! Their music is amazing, and means a lot to me because their music got me through so much although Andy is beautiful I love every band member, and I'm not just one of those girls that only listen to BVB because of Andys looks. BVB is an amazing band and I love all their songs
I like them because of andy 6 he has the greatest voice ever.. and also hot but I like the whole band too.. they should be number one
bvb forever! best band should be at number one lol I'm 12 and andy 6 is so sexy, but I don't like the band just for andy 6. I love bvb peace!
[Newest]Best band of all time

6Of Mice & Men
HOW ARE THESE GUYS SO LOW?!?! Austin is probably one of the best screamers I've ever heard and their breakdowns are amazing!
What the hell is of mice and men doing here the should be top 10 easy.
I'm not even sure how its possible this is so low. Of mice and men are seriously one of the best bands ever and should be in the top ten easily. Their songs have deep meanings and their just badass in every way possible.
[Newest]I just love them

7A Day to Remember
Best one out there. They combine the perfect amount of screaming to singing and play a lot of different types of stuff and are like no other band out there.
I love they're song "You be tails and I'll be sonic" It is assurably the most amazing song I've ever heard! ADTR IS AMAZING!
Jeremy McKinnon has got some real pipes. Homesick is just brilliant, but my favorite song has to be 2nd Sucks.
[Newest]They are the best band in the world they have a perfect combination of screaming and singing its awesome I love this band.

8Sleeping With Sirens
Just the most amazing band! You'd better listen to them or else there isn't any point in reading the list. Do it now remember it later is the best song ever!
I love SWS SO much! Kellin has the voice of an Angel. I love the whole band, to its entirety. The music they produce is amazing, just as simple as that. Sleeping with sirens is on my top 3 list of my favorite bands. Keep up the good work, boys, I love you all.
I went and saw them last night and they were amazing they should definitely be higher up than this! Kellin's voice is amazing.
[Newest]There the most amazing band ever! I love them!

9Falling In Reverse
They are the best. The singer (Ronnie Radke) was singing in Escape The Fate before. He is now in Falling In Reverse, and I think that etf is nothing without him, I can tell that falling in reverse will be so popular, they have one album for now. An album named "The Drug In Me Is You" Ronnie's growl is amazing.
Falling In Reverse is epic. Ronnie is so sexy... And I mean seriously, he has the best voice ever and it just makes me feel so good. I love him, and this is the best band ever. If you want a truly inspiring band look at Falling In Reverse. You'll get hooked like I did,
My friend showed me Falling in Reverse when I was having a hard time, Ronnie's story and his new attitude about life brought me out of the darkness I had put myself in. Their music is inspiring, not to mention all of them are extremily sexy espescially their new bassist, Ron Falling in Reverse forever and always!
[Newest]Love you ronnie your so awesome

10Suicide Silence
Suicide Silence is amazing beyond like words and that's why I can't finish this.
I am in love love love love with these guys! If you ever read this comment boys I will marry you!
I never liked there guys until recently, they are so damn amazing it's not even funny!
[Newest]Suicide Silence should be on top. No questions asked. Mitch Lucker is the only screamer that had the high scream range like his who made songs without using autotune. The only reason he sounds different live is because of audio distortion. Eddie is great too.

The Contenders

11The Devil Wears Prada
Because they deserve the dead throne. No exceptions. No excuses. Mikey screams the pants off all these posers. Period.
They inspired me to scream. Mike heranica is the best ever, and hopefully one day my band will become as famous as there's
Still fly is the greatest cover to any song ever
[Newest]They are very good there music video sailors prayer is kinda creepy but it's also funny at the same time

This band is so under rated, if you know good music then you know this band has PURE talent.
My all time favorite band I don't understand why no body likes them
Knives and pens m/ -nick mo
[Newest]They deserve more than this

13Motionless In White
This band is amazing chris is the best singer. Chris tries to reach out to people to let them know their not alone in this world and to let them know its ok to be different. He respects the way you are but wont take crap from anyone even if they are trying to change him he doesn't let that effect him he starts himself and lives his life his way. That's just some reasons why this band is the best at what they do. I can't go a day without listening to them.
This band is amazing. All the guys are super sweet, and the songs that have, are ones you can really relate to. I think this band deserves to be number 1. Not just because they are my favorite band, but because they are a terrific band.

Motionless in white is just amazing, I really don't see why people would not like them, well besides the fact that they are different, but it's a good thing to be different like us. A lot of us are called freaks, and outcasts because we're singled out, for being different. So let the freak in you show because being like everyone else will get you no-where in this world
Motionless in white are an amazing band, they sing/scream about what its like to be an outcast, they have an amazing singer (chris motionless) Chris tries so hard to reach out to people to tell them they aren't alone, no matter what this world challenges you with you aren't alone in it, its ok to be different. You shouldn't give what others think, its only an opinion. Don't let people change who you are, don't let anything be forced upon you, especially religion. Everyone should listen to them. They are just AMAZING, there are no words for how amazing and life-changing they are!
[Newest]Best band ever they have helped me through all my struggles

14August Burns Red
These guys rock. THey shouldn't be number 14. Best screamer and guit
Gotta love these guys. They are so technical, and never fail to impress with their depth of songwriting. They do not deserve to be this low on the list. Buy their Christmas album too, cause it's gonna rock.
There pretty epic not good enough for top ten but the shouldn't be 28th what
[Newest]Are a really good band but their aren't screamo

15Escape the Fate
Their the best because, their beat is awesome, they having hot band members, their screamo is easy to understand and other bands are all like just screamo this band actually has plain words their just the best. I love you RONNIE AND CRAIG!
Amazing music. Take away stress. Cute band memebers. Amazing Songs, Fun to jam to. AMAZING BAND. ROCK ON. :-P
[Newest]Escape The Fate was good Ronnie Radke was in it

16We Came As Romans
I love WCAR and how they don't focus on the bad, negative things about the music but write about good things, not about hate.
These guys have it all! Screaming is great! Vocals kill! By far better than these top 10
I love this band, is my favorite, I wouldn't change it for any other cause no other band can compare to the talent We Came As Romans have, though their songs have helped get through a lot of difficult times... I just love them!
[Newest]Their new songs rock!

17I See Stars
Check out their newest album Digital Renegade and you will be hooked. Zach Johnson has a phenomenal scream and Devin Oliver has some solid clean vocals.
Seriously, listen to Zach Johnsons screams. They feel/sound so powerful and full of raw emotion. I see stars is for sure in my top 5 favourite bands of all time. When I saw them, they had an absolutely amazing live show, and we're just so enjoyable, and the electronics add so much fun, but it's also hardcore enough to have a pretty great mosh pit. All around great band
Great overall band, not for everybody, but they have a great style for anyone who likes dubstep type music, or synthcore. Amazing vocals and great screams. This band also has some variety, which you don't see in a lot of bands. Id put I See Stars in the top 5!
[Newest]Have you heard devin and andrew in the new demons album that dubstep is awesome listen to when I say jump you say how high rock on I see stars

18Memphis May Fire
Matty Mullins is a epic singer this band is off the chain
This has to be my favorite band at the moment. it has a great mix of vocals and screaming. I used to love AA, but check em out on youtube live. they suck. : what a let down...
Matty definitely has one of the most recognizable voices out there, be it screams or singing. Heavy and melodic music, pure awesome
[Newest]WHY ARE THEY 19?!?!?! They need to be in the top ten they are amazing!

All of Alesana's music has a story behind it! They're new album is better than any other album out there! The should be 1st!
I really love this band... For me its the no. 1... My girlfriend don't like screamo but this... She also love this band...
There amazing! They have that mix of soft and loud I love it
[Newest]I love alesana... Rock n roll
More comments about Alesana

They are just as good live as they are on recording! Plus their instrumentals are unique and well-structured.
Way too low! Most of the bands rated above them have 2 or 3 tracks per album that are respectable. You can and should listen to Silverstein straight through. Every song has raw emotion, harmonic vocals, melodic riffs, solos and above all the sickest and cleanest screaming voice in the music industry.
This band changed my life. Whenever I feel depressed or anxious I listen to this band. Shane told has an amazing voice and he is a great songwriter. I know all of silverstein's songs and they are amazing live when I saw them at warped tour this year. Shane told is my idol
[Newest]One of the few band that combines real post hardcore music with intelligent lyrics. And they have one of the best screamer of the world as singer!
