241 Metro Station Metro Station Metro Station is an American pop rock band that was formed in Los Angeles by Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso.

I love them so much, metro were my Idol since I was 9, 4 years,

242 Pulse Ultra

Too bad only one album came out of this band. They had killer musicians and I wish the songs caught on...

243 Flyleaf
244 Forever the Sickest Kids

How are they in the 200's? The songs "Believe Me, I'm Lying" and "She's a Lady" are good enough to put them in the top ten. Since they aren't as mainstream as those in the Top Ten Forever the Sickest Kids may never get the respect that they deserve. Please vote this band up into at least the Top 100. Also the All-American Rejects should be in the Top Five, yet they are much higher and the same goes for Mayday Parade. So many good bands that are so relatable that are getting no respect! Please vote for Forever The Sickest Kids!

Please vote them up! This band is amazing and they deserve to be in the Top Ten!

249 Hole Hole Hole was an American alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989 by singer and guitarist Courtney Love and lead guitarist Eric Erlandson.

They should be tied with Nirvana at least

They should at least be up there in the top 20's, very underrated band.

Hole is great should be #2 Cause Courtney and Kurt were the best

253 Walk the Moon Walk the Moon

I think Walk the Moon is the best because whenever I'm down I listen to Walk the Moon

Walk the Moon is fabricated pop garbage


When I'm down I always listen to them and they make me happy!
They're my Drug

254 Hey Violet Hey Violet Hey Violet is an American band from Los Angeles, California, consisting of Rena Lovelis, Miranda Miller, Nia Lovelis, Casey Moreta, and Iain Shipp.

Their new album is so great!

Pillar is the hardest Christian rock band that will not disappoint, whether you are a Christian or not!

Should be higher. - zxm

259 Mazzy Star

Dream pop/Alt rock band. Everything about this 1990s line-up screams complete originality and independence from everything else. Hope Sandoval's lyrics are poignant and beautiful, as is she on stage, and David Roback's guitarwork is careful and endearing. The duo are one of the most affectual, and the gentle singing accompanied by the melodic, simple chord progressions of the sweet guitar lines makes for an experience like no other. I'm not sure why I had to add this amazing band to the list. It should be right up the top. - KingCobalt
