The Ten Greatest Emo Bands

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Red Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

Should be top 20. Though they are heavy by their music but their lyrics, guitar riffs and vocals are more than just an emo. They express the struggles of suffering people. They are real talent. Listen to any of their songs. I bet you will definitely vote for them.

Should be a lot closer to at least 30. Check out "Feed the Machine" to see what I mean

TF HAS NO ONE VOTED FOR RED! Just saw them on the list and auto-clicked! Some good bands on here although not all of them fall under the "emo" genre.

Wonderful and if you don't thank so back off

102 From First to Last

PEOPLE! From first to last! One of the best! Emotional to the max with fantastic vocals from sonny moore who has since gone in to form skrillex... Do the amazing music a favour and put them in their rightful place!
"I can feel my mind
Wandering again.
Into where I don't know,
And will I ever get home?
Time starts moving
Faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene;
I need to break the routine. "

Unfortunately Sonny Moore went on to become Skrillex and make rubbish music. But while he was in From First to Last, they were brilliant. They attempted to cling to life with Matt Good as the vocalist, but the only real gems were with Sonny on vocals.

Should be in at least the top 20?!?! The individuals split up to form bands that everyone knows? D.R.U.G.S... SKRILLEX! These guys are genuine geniuses.. Each in their own way.. Between the scream of travis and the piercing screach of Sonny moore there is NO BETTER BAND

This is the best band of emo core1!

103 Senses Fail

I LOVE this band! It sounds amazing. Buried a lie is my favorite song. This should be much much higher than 57.

I have to imagine their disrespect in this list is due to lack of mainstream exposure. If you are unfamiliar, but love early to mid 2000s emo, do yourself a favor and by the "let it enfold you" album RIGHT NOW!

Senses Fail is one of my favorite bands, and one of the only bands that is actually emo on this list.

LOVE THEM! Can't be saved or Buried a lie are the best!

105 Hotel Books
106 Fugazi

Half emo-half punk rock. Their song "Waiting Room" is considered on of the best emo songs ever.

This is a band that everyone should know no matter what classifications yopu enjoy boxing yourself into... "you are not what you own"... "don't let every slip become a fall"

107 Chicosci

Whatever genre, they're just making awesome music

108 King for a Day
109 Ghost Town

My Favorite band is Ghost town, and out of all my peeps, we all vote that Ghost Town is the best. Grant you, there is a little bit of screaming (screamo music), but it isn't overbearing. I LOVE THEM! They should at least get a twenty, at the very least...

This underground mix of dubstep grunge is multi talented and fun to dance to!

Ghost town Is one of my favorite bands
You should also listen to "fit for rivals"

This list continues to disappoint me...
Ghost Town is one of my favorite bands.

112 Weezer Weezer Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.

Pinkerton is one of the Greatest EMO ALBUMS Ever...

My personal favorite since I could comprehend music, will always be apart of me.

No Weezer=No emo. These guys started it all and got it popular worldwide

They are the only emo band to ever get popular (J.E.W. doesn't count because by the time they got popular the stopped making emo)

113 You Me at Six

There absolutely amazing! Can't believe they're so far down the list the lyrics are touching and they have great chemistry, the have songs like loverboy which are powerful and strong then songs like the dilemma which are playful and so damn catchy! Love my babies

I think they should be in at LEAST the 20s. Their song stay with me is amazing. Come on guys, how could they not be in the 20s?

Ghost town should be in the top tens why are they #84?! They actually care so much about their fans, they write really good songs with amazing lyrics and as a bonus they are all beautiful.

Such a good band

My absolute FAVORITE BAND OF ALL TIME... But I don't consider them an emo band, so I voted for My Chemical Romance

They are amassing

Great lyrics with a lot of meaning

Best band ever! Platz is the best drummer. Ben is the the best bassist. Wayne kills it with guitars. And Dan is the best vocalist ever!

115 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

Limp Bizkit saved my life. Whenever I'm about to take up the razor blade I listen to "Behind Blue Eyes" and I convince myself not to.

I love there song Behind Blue Eyes

Are you kidding me?! This isn't emo! Plus, they suck!
