Goodness! I don't get how Finch is down here! Wasn't Finch's WIITB revolutionary? And even the second album "Say Hello To Sunshine" was something much worth listening! Finch really is something! They deserve more upper rank than this

Emarosa are amazing! Johnny Craig has an amazing voice and their music is just awesome They deserve to be much more well known

Jonny Craig has a damn good voice.


Probably the best all girl band I have ever heard in my entire life. I still can't get over the fact that I heard of them from my middle school math teacher.

My absolute FAVORITE BAND OF ALL TIME... But I don't consider them an emo band, so I voted for My Chemical Romance

Great lyrics with a lot of meaning

One of my favourite bands. Right up there with the gods: My Chemical Romance, FOB AND P! ATD
Their lyrics are sweet and believable and they do everything for their fans

132Boys Night Out

Can't believe they're #65. If the genre is emo, they deserve to be at least within the top 25. Trainwreck was nothing short of incredible, people, come on.

LOVE BNO! Trainwreck was heavily played in my cd player when it came out, that was even when they switched up their sound, their early stuff is great as well.

134A Vain Attempt

Their the best people they write songs that go straight into your heart. The songs "I can't escape" and "you broke my heart"are amazing go check them out or els I kill you! Hihi

Not very well known, but one of the best emo bands out there. Check them out.
