They are amazing! Jeremy's vocals are really really good and they are amazing live.

This bands deserves to be AT LEAST in the top 10, like, come on... Blood On The Floor is ahead of all my favorite bands, that is bull.

I believe this band deserves better, I love this band and their songs are amazing! Hoping to see them at Van's Warped Tour this year!

83Simple PlanSimple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

Noo, I can't believe simple plan is in 48th place! They are so awesome! They are more punk than emo so that might contribute to their place on the list

This band helped through a lot! Their music saved a lot of people. I will be supporting them forever

What an amazing band, they sang songs that kids understood and even had a foundation to help save kids from all the things they go through. I love this band and I wish there was more from them now!

This should be in the top 20 at least.

A very good band from the Philippines, probably the best emo band in Southeast Asia.

They're just the best... Awesome guitar riffs, good lyrics, etc. They're one of the bes

This band is for people with brokenhearts because' of the person they love and I'm proud to be a filipino

85The Get Up Kids

Something to write home about... that album is one of the best pieces of art I have ever heard in my life!

Should probably vote for an actual good emo band.

Seriously? 262? This is a real band! None of that scenie weenie garbage at the top of the list. You peasants should kill yourselves.

89Breaking BenjaminBreaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). more.

I have a feeling that whoever added this also added three days grace. Again, not all rock is emo. Still good though

Breaking bejamin is one of my favorite bands I'm not sure I would call it emo though but all I want to say is thank you, dad for introducing me in to this kind of music!

Breaking Benjamin is the best rock band ever.

I think it's a band definitely worth checking out... They have a good mix of screaming and singing :) a song I would recommend by them: The end of Prom Night... Check them out!

Their songs perfectly suits on my them al

This band was the very first band in this genre that I've listened to

These guys are good why aren't they higher?

Newer emo band, though sound of the second wave. Give "All Over You" and "Under The Covers" a listen.

92HIMHIM is a rock band from Helsinki, Finland. The band was formed in 1992 by vocalist Ville Valo, and bassist Mikko "Migé" Paananen, under the name His Infernal Majesty.

Their more goth than emo but still their songs are amazing and Ville's voice is beautiful ; check out the song wings of a butterfly

I really don't think they're emo. Ville is amazing.

Well, this is goth. I've been listening to them my whole life and honestly, they aren't emo. At all. Sorry.

I just love HIM and Ville is such an amazing musician but they're not really emo

93Papa RoachPapa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

Papa roach is awesome, last resort is my favourite song and I can listen to it repetitively! Last resort is the best song to listen to on them days you're really pissed at the world.

Papa roach is not emo. It is more metal ore than anything else

Awesome band! Great songs love their song forever and last resort

These people need to be at least in top 20! I've had "last resort" stuck in my head all week! They deserve so much better than #93.

I like Dr. Acula! :D I think they make very good music. They shouldn't be in 34th place. Well at least it's higher than all those other bands down there... You know...

95Marianas TrenchMarianas Trench is a Canadian rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, formed in 2001. The band consists of members Josh Ramsay, Matt Webb, Mike Ayley, and Ian Casselman.

Great band just listen to good to you and cross my heart. Good emo band

My favourite band. Newer albums are not so much emo however their first album Fix Me may be considered 'emo'. Definitely worth the listen.

After mpt they turned more pop... they're not an emo band in the slightest

Most of the bands on this damn list aren't even emo

Cursive is a great group. I might be partial because they had a cellist at one point, but they can play. Cursive also fits into the genre of emo. My Chemical Romance doesn't want to be called emo, so I think that is an acceptable request. Papa Roach shouldn't be on the list.

97Our Last Night

They aren't emo, but they are a really good band. Sunrise and Drag Me Down probably their best musics.

Absolutely beautiful band, they deserve more popularity in the us then they currently have.

Same old war and reason to love just speaks to my heart in ways no one will ever understand.

They are not emo!

Great Band, there songs are so catchy.

I think they should be little bit more up than that

Each one of their songs spoke to me! Their lyrics are absolutely amazing and I love their sound. This is a true emo band. I've loved them since the beginning and always will.

Such a great band. Keeps me listening

99RedRed is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

Should be top 20. Though they are heavy by their music but their lyrics, guitar riffs and vocals are more than just an emo. They express the struggles of suffering people. They are real talent. Listen to any of their songs. I bet you will definitely vote for them.

Should be a lot closer to at least 30. Check out "Feed the Machine" to see what I mean

TF HAS NO ONE VOTED FOR RED! Just saw them on the list and auto-clicked! Some good bands on here although not all of them fall under the "emo" genre.

Wonderful and if you don't thank so back off

They are amazing. I wouldn't particularly brand them as "emo" I feel their lyrics may be taken in such a way people may think that but their lyrics are amazing and they are great live.

What? Why is it so low? Their song, Hear me Now is KILLER! Someone needs to raise them up more
