The Ten Greatest Emo Bands

81 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

This is Post-Grunge, not emo. It isn't even associated with emo. I'd say it's in my top 3 favorite bands though, I'm glad it's good enough to get on lists of a genre it doesn't belong to!

I'm really not sure if this is an emo band but THIS IS MY FAVORITE BAND EVER!

Awesome songs, I love almost every single song by them.

Not emo but they do have good songs

They are amazing! Jeremy's vocals are really really good and they are amazing live.

This bands deserves to be AT LEAST in the top 10, like, come on... Blood On The Floor is ahead of all my favorite bands, that is bull.

I believe this band deserves better, I love this band and their songs are amazing! Hoping to see them at Van's Warped Tour this year!

85 Simple Plan Simple Plan Simple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

Noo, I can't believe simple plan is in 48th place! They are so awesome! They are more punk than emo so that might contribute to their place on the list

This band helped through a lot! Their music saved a lot of people. I will be supporting them forever

What an amazing band, they sang songs that kids understood and even had a foundation to help save kids from all the things they go through. I love this band and I wish there was more from them now!

This should be in the top 20 at least.

87 The Get Up Kids

These guys pretty much invented emo. With all due respect, My Chemical Romance is a good band, but they reshaped emo to become this crap misconception. - MojoSpaederman

Something to write home about... that album is one of the best pieces of art I have ever heard in my life!

Should probably vote for an actual good emo band.

Top 1.

91 Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). more.

I have a feeling that whoever added this also added three days grace. Again, not all rock is emo. Still good though

Breaking bejamin is one of my favorite bands I'm not sure I would call it emo though but all I want to say is thank you, dad for introducing me in to this kind of music!

Breaking Benjamin is the best rock band ever.

Their songs perfectly suits on my them al

This band was the very first band in this genre that I've listened to

These guys are good why aren't they higher?

93 The Spill Canvas

Newer emo band, though sound of the second wave. Give "All Over You" and "Under The Covers" a listen.

94 HIM HIM HIM is a rock band from Helsinki, Finland. The band was formed in 1992 by vocalist Ville Valo, and bassist Mikko "Migé" Paananen, under the name His Infernal Majesty.

Their more goth than emo but still their songs are amazing and Ville's voice is beautiful ; check out the song wings of a butterfly

I really don't think they're emo. Ville is amazing.

Well, this is goth. I've been listening to them my whole life and honestly, they aren't emo. At all. Sorry.

I just love HIM and Ville is such an amazing musician but they're not really emo

95 Papa Roach Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

Papa roach is awesome, last resort is my favourite song and I can listen to it repetitively! Last resort is the best song to listen to on them days you're really pissed at the world.

Papa roach is not emo. It is more metal ore than anything else

Awesome band! Great songs love their song forever and last resort

These people need to be at least in top 20! I've had "last resort" stuck in my head all week! They deserve so much better than #93.

96 Dr. Acula

I like Dr. Acula! :D I think they make very good music. They shouldn't be in 34th place. Well at least it's higher than all those other bands down there... You know...

97 Marianas Trench Marianas Trench Marianas Trench is a Canadian rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, formed in 2001. The band consists of members Josh Ramsay, Matt Webb, Mike Ayley, and Ian Casselman.

Great band just listen to good to you and cross my heart. Good emo band

My favourite band. Newer albums are not so much emo however their first album Fix Me may be considered 'emo'. Definitely worth the listen.

After mpt they turned more pop... they're not an emo band in the slightest

Most of the bands on this damn list aren't even emo

98 Cursive

Cursive is a great group. I might be partial because they had a cellist at one point, but they can play. Cursive also fits into the genre of emo. My Chemical Romance doesn't want to be called emo, so I think that is an acceptable request. Papa Roach shouldn't be on the list.

99 Our Last Night

They aren't emo, but they are a really good band. Sunrise and Drag Me Down probably their best musics.

Absolutely beautiful band, they deserve more popularity in the us then they currently have.

Same old war and reason to love just speaks to my heart in ways no one will ever understand.

They are not emo!

100 All American Reject

Each one of their songs spoke to me! Their lyrics are absolutely amazing and I love their sound. This is a true emo band. I've loved them since the beginning and always will.

Such a great band. Keeps me listening
