62Nevea Tears

You've most likely never heard of them. That's why, as you finish looking at this list, you'll look them up. Go. Now. - JamNamZamHam

63Abandon all Ships

Worst screamer ever.. I could get a better scream pulling a cat by its tail. Listen to their popular song to see what I mean. I forgot name of song

64Biffy Clyro

It's a shame to see a great band like Biffy Cliro so low in that list! And there are too much bands that ARE NOT post hardcore... As an example, Dying Fetus is death metal, so it has nothing to do in that top.

65Just Surrender

If you don't like them, I don't like you.


They have one of the best albums of any post-hardcore bands in "The Ascent".

67The Word Alive

Casanova rodeo best Song of all!

"The Few And The Far Between" - awesome album!

73Get ScaredGet Scared is an American gothic metal band from Layton, Utah. Formed in 2008, they released their first EP, Cheap Tricks and Theatrics, in 2009. Another EP, Get Scared, was released in 2010.

So down? I think they deserve to be up there!

I voted Ice Nine Kills before I saw GS was on here great band though

74Fear From the Hate
75In Alcatraz 1962

I don't even know how to react. I assume the reason they're so low is because no one has heard of them. Emery is a literal perfect blend of everything. Their vocals, instrumentals, and the lyrics are all worthy of praise in their own right. The harmonizing vocals between Toby and Devin are truly mesmerizing. I could right for much longer, but I'm not. I'm aware this is a bold statement and many wont agree, but Emery along with Underoath, Wolves at the Gate, and a Day To Remember should be up top. At least put them ahead of that Bring Me the Horizon garbage.

77Poison the Well

They are just straight hardcore


This band is where its at, they are gonna be huge!
