YES. I came this list just to see if they got were at the top. And of course! Their lyric song are amazing and each song has its own vibe. They're great people and I've never loved any musicians like I do them. The lyrics are very relatable to me.

Best. Lyrics. Ever. " Its all about my forehead, and how it is a door that holds back contents that make Pandora's box contents look nonviolent." Migraine, Vessel, 2013. "Sometimes quiet is violent." Car Radio, Vessel, 2013. " There's an infestation in my mind's imagination." "Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit." Heavydirtysoul, Blurryface, 2015. "We're driving toward the morning sun, where all your blood is washed away, and all you did will be undone." Taxi Cab, Twenty One Pilots, 2009. I could go on, and on, and on, but I won't. So good.

This is the best band in the world! My friends say they're a mental depression (witch is kind of true), but I just love these guys!

What are they even doing on this list? Terrible, just terrible. - benhos
