The Ten Greatest Emo Bands
The Contenders: Page 3
A Skylit Drive is BEAST how could you people let it slip to 32nd and XO Skelton in an EPIC song how dare you guys let them down!
They sound really good
HONESTLY BEST BAND EVER
They should be MUCH higher on the list though. They have a really badass metal sound and are really talented. They really should get more recognition.
Awesome band my favorite song is love like winter because it expresses the way I sometimes feel with my family and beautiful thieves is good to like the way death just steals some peoples beauty
Best band EVER! I love love love them they are awesome and should be closer to the top
Davy has the most amazing voice EVER! AFI is the best!
Greatest band in existence.V 1 Comment
Another great band. "Some Sense of Security" and "Voices" are two great songs by them. - Joekool67
You Are Not Alone, Bury Your Head, Voices, Seven Years, Sleeper, man... They make me cry
Solid band man... This band never gives negative lyrics(death, cut, blood, hatred) this band gives you so many positive messages throughout their songs. Listen to
You Are Not Alone
Bury Your Head
It's Far Better To Learn
I don't consider TOP emo, I consider them more as an alternative band ( or Schizoid pop ), but I will still love them no matter how much 2016 made them seem over-rated.
They're far from emo (even though a lot of idiots at my school hate them and say they're goth) but they're still really amazing, I just don't think they should be on this list.
My favorite band ever. I actually am still here just because of them. They definitely should be ranked higher.
Not really Emo in a sense of the word. However they're better than anything emo and they're Alternative so...V 26 Comments
I seldom listen to them. "Baby, You Wouldnt Last a Minute on the Creak" is a pretty good song by them. - Joekool67
chiodos is a really good band and two birds stoned at once is a good song - jakeman3000
Craig is just a good Lyric righter.
This band is amazing and beautiful. Listen to them! You won't regret it.V 2 Comments
The first two TBS albums may be the two best emo albums ever. You can literally feel the emotion in their voice when they are singing, and the back up vocals harmonize so well with lead. Both albums flow very nicely, and the first one has an awesome raw feeling to it. Love them
I can only assume they're not top 5 because a lot of people aren't considering them emo. If you do, they might be the best. Emo is short for emotional. If you don't feel the emotion in their first two albums, check your heartbeat...
Pretty awesome, just started listening today on a friend's advice, absolutely love them. Cute without the e, and liar, best ever
This list is a joke. (Before you jump down my throat) I actually like most of these bands. But they aren't emo. Save the vast majority of these for the best pop punk bands. That's where they belong.
Taking Back Sunday, on the other hand, is the greatest emo band of all time. Louder Now is iconic in this genre. That entire album has been played by myself alone too many times to count. - MarianasPilots
I think people forget the meaning of Emo, Emo stands for emotional. Not all the crap about sex and stuff. These guys are amazing and have amazing lyrics. Believe, Face Down and Your Guardian Angle are my top 3 favourites from them.
Come on people in this list there are only like 3-5 real emo bands and like none of the top 10are they are all good bands but not emo rja is actually an emo band fix the list
The Red jumpsuit apparatus are one of the best bands around. In my opinion. I think that they should be in the top 10 at least not 28th no way.
I love the song face down the instrumentals were awesome but I liked the lyrics a lot moreV 8 Comments
WHAT! Why are they so low down! They should be in the top 5 at least! They r amazing!
They have saved my life more times than I can admit. The amount of strength and post put in to their music and lyrics is amazing.
They need to be much higher up on the list! Amazing band with a wonderful sound and beautiful lyrics
How are they #44?V 17 Comments
Now I'm pissed! Flyleaf should at least be in the Top 20! People haven't heard good music until Amy Lee and Lacey.
Why are they down here? My Favorite song by them is "i'm so sick" and I memorized how to play it in rock band.
Flyleaf is an awesome band! I love their song 'All Around Me'. Wouldn't call them emo though.
Sorry, but um...these guys are Christian. Emo+Christian= doesn't MIX
Christians can play emo. Flyleaf just doesn't happen to be one of them. - MarianasPilotsV 5 Comments
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. These guys should be number one. All time favorite band, lyrics are amazing and clever, great music. One of the few bands on this list that are legitimately emo.
Why isn't this like at least number 20 what I love a lot of these bands but there are under 30 that are actually emo
This band.. Is literally my favorite! The lyrics, the melodies, the instruments! This should at least be in top 10!
THESE GUYS SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 10 at least! Get scared is my favourite band!V 12 Comments
Breathe Carolina is just amazing! They are doing a great job. There new mixtape Bangers is awesome. They are not emo but they are screamo and electronic added. They are really cool.
I love breathe carolina! Live on! I'm so sad that kyle left.
I love Breathe Carolina! Eat, Sleep, Breathe Carolina!
They are not emo!V 3 Comments
"nothing feels good" is one of the best emo albums ever
BEST BAND ever! It's mixture of both sad and screamo make this band absolutely unique to everything else. Songs such as No More Sorrow, Crawling, and Faint are my favorites.
They are not heavy metal
Post hardcore, not emo, but the BAND shouldn't BE ON THE FOURTH PAGE OML YOU PEOPLE NEED TO LISTEN TO IT!
Their early work is a lot angrier than the Hunting Party, but Mike is a genius and Chaz can make choruses soar and verses curdle your blood. Definitely give them a vote.
This band isn't emo though... - wrestsV 17 Comments
You're right. Joy Division is one of the classical gothic music at the beginning of the gothic subculture.
How could anyone mistake emo music for Goth music
Joy division isn't Emo, it's goth!
The only reason I can think of for these guys not being number one is that they are not emo...easily best band of all time
A lot of these bands are not emo, but who in their right mind thinks that Avenged Sevenfold is emo?
This band is the greatness, but they aren't emo, is more, THE 75% BANDS IN HIS LIST AREN'T EMO
THESE GUYS DESERVE TOP 20 I LOVE ALL they're SONGSV 20 Comments
Mayday parade has gotten me through the hardest times of my life. They have been there when no one else has and have changed and probably saved my life. If emo stands for emotion then mayday should be one
This needs to be in, like, the top 20, they don't deserve to be #59. They are so much better than that. The vocalist is really skilled and has nice timbre, and the lyrics are really heartfelt and beautiful. They definitely deserve better.
I Can't Believe This Is So far down the List! They Are My All Time Favourite Band, And I Cannot go A Day Without Them. They Helped Me Through So Much, And They Sing My Life To A T. I Love Them, And You Should Give Them A Listen.
They have been my favorite band for almost 10 years! I love MP to death!V 14 Comments
Their a great band and their songs are badass
One of the best bands of all time. William Control is also great.V 1 Comment
I wouldn't really consider them an emo band, but I guess "emo" is a word used to describe a lot of different bands nowadays... but they are one of my fave bands - satanmakesmekill
I'm pretty confused about which bands are emo and which aren't, but I'm pretty sure Death Cab is, and they're amazing either way. - sameera62
Death Cab is indeed emo. I'm pretty sure all or most of the bands in the top 10 aren't. - MarianasPilots
I think they r emo as their music is a lot like emo poetry and they aren't the biggest most successful band of all time and the whole world isn't full of their fans either. Plus I'm emo and I listen to them a lot. But it still doesn't make them "emo".
This is one of the few actual emo bands on this listV 2 Comments
