41 Rise Against Rise Against Rise Against is an American melodic hardcore band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes.

This band is simply amazing. There is no other band in the world in which you can put in any album and like every single song. They are simply perfect, and will remain that way forever.

Rise against is pure magic. Their drumming is awesome, and the best- their lyrics. They just touch the heart and believe me, you can't stop listening.

I remember when these guys were part of the Pop Punk scene...then they were pigeon holed as EMO...Just good rock, great song writing and great hooks

Number one after old school!
