162 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

Coheed and Cambria deserves to be higher. Even if you don't understand the story behind their music, you can still enjoy it without any problems. Claudio Sanchez is an amazing songwriter and he and his band deserve all the respect they get.

Coheed and cambria are the most talented band around today in my opinion. If you haven't listened to them, you're missing out

Coheed and Cambria is one of the best contemporary bands, there CDs follow a series of comic books written by singer Claudio Sanchez and every album takes you to a world beyond imagination, not to mention they put on an incredible show

163 Sonata Arctica Sonata Arctica Sonata Arctica is a Finnish power metal band from the town of Kemi, Finland. Created as a hard rock band named Tricky Beans, they later changed to Tricky Means and finally to Sonata Arctica, when they shifted to power metal.
164 Nightwish Nightwish Nightwish is a symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and lead singer Tarja Turunen.

This list would make some sense if it wasn't for the fact that nightwish is not anywhere in the top 20, listen to Nightwish' : while your lips are still red - I wish I had an angel - nemo - amanrath - phantom of the opera - ever dream. And I'll promise you that you won't help but fall in love with their music.

Just listen to some of their songs from their latest album. I say every single one is a masterpiece. They are probably the best symphonic metal band in this world...

love night wish more people need to hear their music

Put this band in the top ten, Bill will give you a holler, and Brent will give you a joint.

The most powerful and progressive hard rock/metal band of the past ten years.

"Blood and Thunder" is too good to be #166.

169 Yellowcard Yellowcard

The violin is creative, brilliant, and adds an element to this genre that is not present in many of the bands ranked above

Why are they so low? Haven't you heard their songs? I think they deserve higher than this

171 Crown the Empire

If you like melodic post-hardcore with elements of metalcore, this band is for you (only their old stuff, though. Their newest album, Retrograde, is quite a soft album).

Great band, just started listening to them and they're definitely worth listening to

172 Opeth Opeth Opeth is a Swedish progressive death metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1990. Though the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth's only founding member and primary driving force throughout the years. Along with Edge of more.

173th is way to low for this pioneers from Sweden. 20 years on tour and still going strong, without forgetting to invent themselves every new record. From good old grunt and scream in the early days to pinkfloyd yes on the latest records. One of the best live shows I've ever seen, and they don't need lights, fireworks, striptease, facepaint or other crap that distracts the essential part; playing music.

173 Beartooth Beartooth Beartooth is an American metalcore band formed by Caleb Shomo in Columbus, Ohio in 2012. They are signed to Red Bull Records since 2013 along with Shomo's electronic act Class.

I wasn't impressed with this band.
