206 Dead by April

People don't know what music is all about, especially modern music. When I was clicked on this list I expected them to be at least in the top ten, but... I'm just ashamed. Many bands out here aren't even modern. Dead by April music is a new generation: Modern Melodic Pop Metal (with screaming, synths). Is there any band that makes this kind of music? No! Still people vote for bands that are crap. Vote for this band! In case you haven't heard of them (who hasn't), check the songs "More Than Yesterday", "Losing You", "Calling" and "Trapped". After listening these songs, I can assure you you'll change your mind.

When it comes to MODERN music we should talk about these guys. Dba is SO awesome, their mix of Electronica and Pop with Metal sounds so perfect. The screams associate with the poppish vocals and the lyrics all go about positivity. They are my icon, I like all of their albums, just feel so bad Jimmie isn't in the band anymore :(... But, anyways Dead by april rocks, just don't get it why people don't support them. What is the reason man? I think its because they're not so popular,... Serious folks! You vote for the bands that are popular even if they don't have damn talent. People don't have good taste in music nowadays in my opinion (don't get angry its true! ). Just listen to the song "Losing You" and you'll know why Dead by April. So come on people vote for them PLEASE! Because they are the ones that deserve it.

These guys are just so damn amazing, their music is beautiful and also rocking. The singing associated with the epic screams... Along with the instrumentals of techno mixed with rock... I don't see why they are so underrated X(

Awesome band! These guys know about MODERN MUSIC. Just listen to them, you will understand.

207 Lostprophets Lostprophets

Lostprophets were the band which introduced me to the world of rock and they had the potential to become one of the greatest rock bands around, I was shocked and ashamed to hear about the split.

They're good, but their singer is beyond sick. - Evant

This is actually my third favorite band of all time, it is 10 times better than any band on this list, but it shouldn't be on this list because Endless River doesn't count.

Three generations are already 'lost' by Pink Floyd...

Of course! The new stupid generation doesn't know who Pink Floyd were! Just go and listen to "The final cut" maybe you learn a few about music...

Best band all time

212 Within Temptation Within Temptation Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.

Great Dutch band with another gorgeous and really talented singer and great musicians!

I love her voice. This band has everything, I don't understand why it's in a low position.

This band should be much higher on this list, Excellent music in a similar vein to Evanesence and Nightwish but much better. I would put this band in the top 10 easily.

213 The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.
214 Anthrax Anthrax Anthrax is an American thrash metal band from New York City, formed in 1981 by guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker.
215 The Click Five

Good melodies are hard to find beyond Green Day and Simple Plan. These guys nailed it with Just The Girl and Happy Birthday.

216 We Are the In Crowd
217 Lifehouse Lifehouse

Their songs are great with emotion and passion. They have their own style and melodies as everything, blind, somewhere between and simon. Also they write some great lyrics on every song that is true about life or love experience

They put so much effort into their music. Best album is No Name Face for sure.

I love their songs, they are so special to me. It's lyrics are so emotional!

What...lifehouse must be on top 50.
