Top Ten Best Screamo Bands


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Atreyu

Atreyu is definitely too low on here. A deathgrip on yesterday is a great album. Some of the bands on here are not screamo to be honest.

Atreyu should be in the top 5! Check out this band you won't regret it.. You will be hooked with their songs plus alex varkatzas' voice is just amazing it's so powerful! Check out " the crimson"

How are they so low? They're awesome! - SkullKid101

42 Ice Nine Kills

Their cover of someone like you by Adele was amazing, I've only heard a few of their songs because of my best friend. You need to check them out though

Metal core screamo, loved both their last albums. In the more melodic vein with mininum double base drums which can be over whelming. Often feature slightly bizare lyrics (about dinosaur bones for one thing). Safe is just a shadow is my favorite album

My brother keeps telling me to listen to them but I'm kind of scared to (I saw their CD covers). Are they any good?

43 Thursday

Come on, some of the oldest, most inspirational, screamo bands out there, and they're number 12? Without them most of these bands wouldn't even exist. They have to at least be in the top 10. With albums like Full Collapse and War all the time, they influenced tons of bands.

I absolutely love these guys but their not screamo

AMAZING! Their somg snuff just has so much passion! They have many heavy songs, but also some softer music as well

Slipknot 45?... What? They should be #1! What is this? They are on top, every band looks up to them.

Yeah, what are they doing so low on the lists? They are up at the top ten!

I wouldn't exactly classify these guys as screamo, but they are very talented. I love 'em to death

47 Get Scared Get Scared Get Scared is an American gothic metal band from Layton, Utah. Formed in 2008, they released their first EP, Cheap Tricks and Theatrics, in 2009. Another EP, Get Scared, was released in 2010.

Get Scared should get higher. So vote for Get Scared. There so cool and awesome, they are my favourite band. So get Get Scared Higher!

Love them! They have a great sound

I love them there amazing and they have just the right amount of screaming and they have amazing I personally think they deserve higher at least like top 30

Not screamo. Not even emo. They're post-hardcore, or alternative metal. - Gruunge

48 Dead by April

Dead by April has been around for a couple of years now, but I just found them, and I completely fell in love with their music, and it's hard for me to get into a band this much, other than I See Stars.

This band has the best screaming vocals I've heard in my whole life, check out the songs "Painting Shadows" and "Losing You". Jimmie Strimell is the best screamer ever, that's for sure, and one thing the other bands don't have is the amazing singing talent which Dead by April has.

Man! They should be at no. 1! No question!

I found this band last year and LOVED them! Their song "Dreaming" was my #1 fave!

These guys are amazing I like their style of music

Great band they endorse not killing your self

50 The Amity Affliction

BEST screamo band I've EVER set my ears to, I've heard over 100 from different countries, and by far this band is up with ASKING ALEXANDRIA! For serious screamo lover only, should be in top 5 MINIMUM, and with more world-wide support these guys are going to be HUGE!

Aussie metalcore/post-hardcore is where it's at. Best band ever, Joel writes the most amazing lyrics and the whole band does an amazing job at producing the sound. They should definitely be higher.
- coming from a 12 year old.

Great and inspirational lyrics. I love the screams and clean vocals. Everything about this band is amazing and I accidentally found them on YouTube when I was looking up Beartooth songs. First song I ever heard by them was, "Pittsburgh," and ever since I've been hooked. By far my favorite band of all time, and my favorite song is, "Open Letter."

Top 10 band for sure

51 Capture the Crown

This band is incredible. Talent all round and I get so excited when I hear an Aussie accent that works with the music.

Capture the Crown has great songs, and not so hard on the screamo. Definitely one of my favorites

52 The Bunny the Bear

The Bunny The Bear is amazing! Matt and Chris kick butt! I usually get their names mixed up, but the cleans are so good, the screams are fantastic and unreal. And they have an electric taste, the Wiki says that they are an electronic post-hardcore band. And that's so unique for me because I've only seen two of those genres in my life (electronic post-hardcore is what I mean). Anyways, everyone should check them out.

The Bunny There Bear deserves to be #1 all the way! Have the greatest volumes and most variety of voices. Going from Piano straight to Hardcore Guitar and drums and from high pitch singing to a variety of screamo, this band should definitely be above Asking Alexandria

53 DevilDriver DevilDriver DevilDriver are an American heavy metal band from Santa Barbara, California, formed in 2002, consisting of vocalist Dez Fafara, guitarists Mike Spreitzer and Neal Tiemann, bassist Diego "Ashes" Ibarra and drummer Austin D'Amond.

It's so insane when I heard devil driver!

54 For Today For Today For Today is an American Christian metalcore band from Sioux City, Iowa, formed in 2005. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records.

Awesome. My ex best friend told me about them. Big mistake, now I love them and she can't do ANYTHING about it!

Love this band great messages ain them! They stand on the solid Rock God

55 Parkway Drive Parkway Drive Parkway Drive is an Australian metalcore band from Byron Bay, New South Wales, formed in 2003. As of 2015, Parkway Drive has released five full-length albums, one EP, two DVDs, a split album and one book, titled Ten Years of Parkway Drive.


PARKWAY RULES! They Definitely deserve a higher spot!?!?! But my Personal Fav is "Mudvayne"! I don't know why they ain't on here? but because neither "Mudvayne" or "Lamb Of God" are on here, PARKWAY WINS!

(P. S: Devil is Awesome to! :D)

Hahaha PWD are below Asking Alexandria? Judging by that, I can see that this list is horrible. I this band so much I don't have much love left for my girlfriend. Parkway is one of the greatest bands in the world. As I Lay Dying is also great.

Parkway Drive #19 and black veil brides is #6? I'm pretty sure black veil brides shouldn't be considered the same genre as half of these bands. ADTR was the backbone of this genre even though they have much less screaming I would still group them along with my favorite band (parkway drive)

Why does no one know about this group

56 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

They are my favorite band, but since only their first 2 albums are screamo I don't know if this band fits onto this list. But they are the best band ever!

Avenged Sevenfold is cool. I even have a shirt of them. I love Avenged Sevenfold so please vote for the greatest band in the world.

Hey they deserve a better rating I love Avenged Sevenfold

The best of the best!

Does no-one seriously appreciate Jonny Craig's amazing voice? He has the best range of any vocalist I have heard in a while. Plus every member of the band is extremely talented.

58 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.

Who cares how old you are? You should be able to like whatever music you like. I'm fourteen and I like Beartooth. I also like a lot of other stuff that some people don't like. And I honestly don't care what they say.

I love beartooth with a burning passion and I think they should be in the top ten along with suicide silence sleeping with sirens say we can fly crown the empire and pierce the veil

This is a really good band! Should be at least in the top ten! The album Disgusting is one of my favourite albums ever! Check this band out if you like Of Mice and Men, in my opion they sound very alike. Yes... I am a 15 year old fangirl... don't judge me!

60 Pg. 99

Stuff like this, Orchid, City of Caterpillar and Circle Takes the Square is real screamo. I've become so disappointed with what the accepted definition of screamo has devolved to that I was pleasantly surprised to see Pg. 99 on a list like this at all. If you feel like voting on this list, first listen to any of the aforementioned bands and if you don't like any of them, you don't like screamo and should not be voting on this list.

The fact that any band, ever, would be in a spot above Pg. 99 on a list like this isn't just silly... It's wrong. Not a single band on this "Top Ten" list is even screamo. Time to change that.

We live in a sad world when you have to go down 35 ranks to find real screamo. Nothing above this should be on the list, but there will always be depressive 12 year old girls to vote those up. Besides that, Document #5 and #8 are some of my favorite screamo albums all time.

It's almost like people don't know what screamo is. uwi
