122 Blink 182

How are they so low? They easily helped this genre start in the late 90's and early 2000's. Yes, you could easily make the argument that they are more of a "punk" essence, but they deserve some serious credit for what they've done for the genre as a whole. 99th doesn't really make sense to me. - MasonOcker

I'm sorry but hello? BLINK 182 ARE AWESOME!

I love them!

129 Finch

Goodness! I don't get how Finch is down here! Wasn't Finch's WIITB revolutionary? And even the second album "Say Hello To Sunshine" was something much worth listening! Finch really is something! They deserve more upper rank than this

Jonny Craig has a damn good voice.

136 The Cure The Cure The Cure are an English rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex, in 1976. The band has experienced several line-up changes, with vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member.

The Cure is not an emo band. They were one of the fisrt traditional gothic bands. All of the gothic bands in the late 70's to the late 80's. This is what started the gothic subculture.

They're emo pioneers. enough said

138 Boys Night Out

Can't believe they're #65. If the genre is emo, they deserve to be at least within the top 25. Trainwreck was nothing short of incredible, people, come on.

LOVE BNO! Trainwreck was heavily played in my cd player when it came out, that was even when they switched up their sound, their early stuff is great as well.

139 Firehouse
140 A Vain Attempt
