7My Chemical RomanceMy Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

Would of voted for them but they're not really emo. Only particular songs are. Danger Days definitely isn't emo. Plus, Gerard doesn't like being called emo. I love this band though.

I kinda don't agree their emo, the lead singer hates being called an emo band. It deserves top on any list though. Killjoys, make some noise!

Why is andy at the top you guys have a better sound

Not emo but great

There awesome and I love them so much I have a lot of poster of them and I listen to all there music

This band is my first 'emo' band I ever heard, and I instantly fell in love. This band just about saved me from suicide. When I heard his experiences, it made mine seem so small. It made me happy for once. Thank you, Ronnie Radke. I will always love you!

I love this band listening to them right now

This is an actual SCREAMO band. BVB is not, fall out boy sure as hell is not, and neither is falling in reverse. whoever made this list doesn't know what a screampo band is. Suicide Silence set the way for screamo bands and there for should be #1 along side with of mice and men and motionless in white
