164 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My 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.

Why are these guys last at 49. This should in the top ten. Has any listen to their albums three cheers for sweet revenge or the black parade. This list is not accurate.

Just beautiful... I really don't know how this awesome band is down here in 39th place

My Chemical Romance isn't metal

Not exactly a metal band, but still very good.

165 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

I think the best thing about this band is all of their songs have no bad words, which is very amazing, people usually use bad words in their musics because it makes their musics sound more powerful, but to me black veil brides are just amazing they don't need any bad words to make their musics meaning strong at all, it's already very strong, I love you black veil brides AKA BVB!

All their songs have a meaning, purpose or tell a story. Written from bad experiences, they tell you to be you and to be proud to be different, ignore the haters and stay strong.

Love black veil brides that ar amazing and andy biersack so sexy amazing his sexy voice love them

Why are they not 1 my fab band ever

Ok I know they have strong Christian rock roots, but they are also multiple forms of metal. They are known for many things including use of the violin in metal. John Cooper is on vocals, Korey Cooper is the backing vocalist, Jen Ledger is the drummer after Lori Peters and sang on multiple songs such as "Hero", and Seth Morrison on Lead Guitar. This band has produced 8 studio albums.

You've got my support. Absolutely Fantastic band.

They should be at least in the top 20

They are not metal

You might as well put one direction on here if this is considered metal.

This is not metal why is this even here

I'm actually an HU fan myself but I don't think they should be on this list, just some of their songs are nu metal but they are overall a rap rock band, they're like Linkin Park, which also shouldn't​ be on this list
