81 The Black Dahlia Murder The Black Dahlia Murder The Black Dahlia Murder is an American melodic death metal band from Waterford, Michigan, formed in 2001. Their name is derived from the 1947 unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short, often referred to as Black Dahlia.

They have some Prety amaziingg songss imm nott gonna liee for example Love is A perfect murder is definitely a great song they have a lot of good songs check em out

82 The Word Alive

The word alive is the SEXIEST BAND EVER! I LOVE THEM, and they should be #1 on this list. This list is wack though. It is kind of ignorant to put all the scene savvy crap first! They have no idea how INCREDIBLE THE WORD ALIVE IS! You should check it out... Maybe help me get them to the top... You won't be sorry. All it takes is like 5 minutes on youtube to find the music of your life!

There so cool I just love them and I also love there song "Play The Victom" I just want them to be higher then 77! When I saw some of the other bands I was interested and I voted but when I saw The Word Alive I was so shocked and I voted this. So please vote for them!

The word alive is amazing! They deserve to be way higher then #62

Lights and stones is pretty bad-ass

84 Children of Bodom Children of Bodom Children Of Bodom is a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the group currently consists of Alexi Laiho, Janne Wirman, Henkka Seppälä, Jaska Raatikainen and Daniel Freyberg.

THIS IS THE BOMB. IT'S THE BEST BAND EVER. I started listening to screamo for 2 bands: Children of Bodom and Lamb of God.

Best band mix amazing rifts with very good variety in lyrics

This is death metal, not related to screamo.

85 Born of Osiris Born of Osiris Born of Osiris is an American deathcore band, formed in 2003 in Palatine, a suburb of Chicago. The group underwent several name changes, including Diminished, Your Heart Engraved, and Rosecrance, before finally settling on Born of Osiris in 2007, basing the name on the Egyptian deity Osiris, and the more.

Definitely way better than any of the other bands in the top ten. The latest album is the bomb. I saw them live, and they were amazing. This band is a REAL screamo band. Not asking alexandria.

They really should be a lot higher on the list they are really good

86 Circle Takes the Square

This is the only screamo band on the list, therefore they win. They're chaotic and crazy and overall amazing.

None of these bands are screamo, with the exception of a few... I HATE METAL CORE! If Devil Wears Prada is screamo, then I'm Santa ' Clause

How is the current top ten "screamo"? This beats all of them with As the Roots Undo. - SevenTreeTool

The only screamo band it's okay for hipsters to like.

87 Senses Fail

You can see how Buddy Nelson's scream has developed through all of his albums, it becomes more emotional, sad, and angry through each album. You can tell he puts a lot of feeling and emotion into his scream. Senses Fail easily deserves a higher ranking than 87. My all time favorite band.

I don't see why this is so low on the list, other than the fact that they don't scream in all of their songs? Even then, this is one of my favorite bands. I've been listening to them well over five years now.

Buddy Nelson's screaming has devoloped so much and even though the band has lost so many members they still are amazing and going strong with their new album

88 Fall of Troy

Great band, really progressive, very underrated, some of the best.

90 Orchid

They are better than pretty much all the bands here. Orchid is also one of the only actual screamo bands on this list, a list which comprises simply of terrible metalcore bands who should not even be on this list.

DevilDriver? Really? They are melodic death metal, not screamo! I wish people wouldn't label anything with harsh or screaming vocals, "screamo". It really is quite an insult to the actual music genre. Screamo is Circle Takes The Square, Saetia and Pg.99.
I choose Orchid as the best because they were the first screamo band I actually heard.
Some of these band shouldn't be on the list, they're just terrible scenecore bands. - YourGothicNightmare

#93 on a screamo list and I've seen 3 screamo bands. We live in a sad day and age, my friends.

A real screamo band

93 Whitechapel Whitechapel Whitechapel is an American deathcore band from Knoxville, Tennessee. The band is named after the Whitechapel district in East London, England, referencing the series of murders committed by Jack the Ripper.

This band should be in the top 10 or top 20 best screamo bands!

Sorry, but I think calling Whitechapel screamo is a little insulting.

This band is just so Awesome deserves to be higher

Whoa whoa whitechapel is awesome.
