The Ten Greatest Emo Bands

61Mindless Self Indulgence

They are the most amazing band ever. I've been listening to them for months and I can't stop. My favourite song is "Shut me up"

This band is so cool and stuff, being emo and listening to MSI is my new hobby

MSI has given me inspiration for my game design career and something to listen to.
I wish Lyn-Z would come back and the band would resume.

Thursday is the greatest band ever to be formed, their beautiful lyrics that are delievered with such raw emotion via Geoff Rickly (Gods gift to music) Their songs speak to me, and I know I'm not the only one.

Nice, heavy, and an all around amazing band! It was hard to choose from the bands here but I had to choose this one because of the creativity and new stuff they bring to the table.

Just listen to At Your Funeral or Firefly if you are looking for Emo. Also listen to Brand New, probably number one for emo bands, my opinion though. Enjoy.

How are they not higher, they were one of the first emo bands!

This list disgusts me. People just don't know Emo's roots. You people who listen to "My Chemical Romance" and "Asking Alexandria" aren't emo, you are just whiny little tween douchebags wearing t-shirts of the bands that killed music which were bought by your parents who you live with in a suburban area. You have no reason to be depressed other than having a likeness to these wannabe metal bands. Blake Schwarzenbach would not be amused.

They must be here

77The 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.

What the hell they should be way higher than 52! I love them and listen to them all the time. They should be at least in top 20! I love the song Morte Et Dabo

I'm mad that this band was top 58, it deserves better this band is awesome!

They are very good band, but not emo or screamo!

78Bright Eyes

I love how each one of his songs is a story. They never get´╗┐ boring. He's one of my favourite artists I can always listen to him. His voice is perfection... With all of it's flaws. He's a wonderful poet, so very talented... I was so glad when I discovered his music, it was exactly what I was looking for.

Conor Oberst (singer/writer of Bright Eyes) puts so much thought and emotion into his work. When you listen to his music you can clearly feel what he's feeling. The lyrics are deep and the music is far from the usual stuff we hear today. Bright Eyes has literally saved my life so many times.

"Sunsrise, Sunset" = my all time favourite song.

Genuinely talented. Lyrically and sound wise much better than most other artists out there.

79Three Days GraceThree Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

This is Post-Grunge, not emo. It isn't even associated with emo. I'd say it's in my top 3 favorite bands though, I'm glad it's good enough to get on lists of a genre it doesn't belong to!

I'm really not sure if this is an emo band but THIS IS MY FAVORITE BAND EVER!

Awesome songs, I love almost every single song by them.

Not emo but they do have good songs
