Shame these guys don't get more acclaim

34 Code Orange Code Orange Code Orange is an American hardcore punk band that formed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2008. The band signed to Deathwish Inc.
35 The Pretty Reckless

This band is so underrated. Retro Heavy Metal/ Blues Rock. Nothing in my generation holds up to them except maybe My Morning Jacket (who started in the 90's) or Blue Pills.

36 Stoned Jesus
37 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.

The 21st century version of Weezer isn't exactly their glory days. This really shouldn't be on this list.

Make Believe, Red, Raditude and Hurley are definitely steps down from the previous work. I personally love Hurley but I know for the most part these four were super less well received. However, Green was a success, Maladroit was well received and has a cult following-ish. Everything Will Be Alright In The End was fantastic and White was fantastic.

The band told a story through all the songs they ever released. One, big story, unfolding song by song. It also has lyrics any teen could relate to. This needs to be in the top 20 at least.

39 Cage the Elephant
40 Feeder

Very good band. They deserve much more attention than what they have been getting.
