Top 10 Best Post-Hardcore Bands of All TimeThese are the best post-hardcore bands out there. If you disagree, you're missing out.
A Day to Remember are a bunch of awesome bunch of normal people and played music an did what they loved. Their music is amazing, the lyrics so powerful, and their videos are so funny!
So you are telling me, ADTR is number 1 is post-hardcore but they are not even in the top ten in metalcore on this site? well, technically metalcore is a subgenre of post-hardcore so any subgenre of post-hardcore can be on this list, but they did many things for metalcore, so they should be number 1 in metalcore too if they are number 1 in post-hardcore too
Forget best best post hardcore band, this is just one of the best bands ever.
They became my most listened band in my playlist since I discover them.
Pierce the Veil is my favourite post-hardcore band of all time because, not only are they extremely talented lyrically and musically, but they're just a bunch of awesome guys with big hearts. They've helped me through tough times because their songs express what I have in my head perfectly. I honestly don't know what I would've done without them.
Pierce the veil is probably the best hardcore band I know of. I mean, their lyrics are decipherable (the screaming parts) and their songs are oh so very catchy. I would definitely recommend for anyone to listen to them, even if you're not a giant hardcore fan, they have some pretty good stuff. Collide with the sky is definitely my favourite album with their best song (in my opinion) "Kings for a day"
(Oh... And not to forget that Vic Fuentes is really cute, so... BONUS! )
Absolutely my favourite band to listen to whenever I'm feeling down or I just want to listen to a band who talks about life and feelings that people go through. They also do amazing songs about just saying screw society and live your life the way you want to. Ten out of Ten no matter what happens.
Pierce The Veil are a very underrated band. They deserve to be in the top spot. Each member of the band is EXTREMELY talented, and their music is unique. Their songs have very deep and meaningful lyrics and Vic Fuentes' voice is just... Wow. Words can't explain how amazing his voice is.
They withstood the test of time. Still a great band to see on tour, and all their albums are a good listen. Discovering the waterfront is an album I always come back to.
Could never really get into other post hardcore bands. Sleeping with sirens? No thanks. Bmth, ptv. I don't know just didn't suit my tastes. It all felt too.. scene. I don't know. Silverstein is cool. Their music makes sense to me and I'm no longer into post hardcore or emo music, but Silverstein is still good. They've stood the test of time and I can put discovering the waterfront on and sing along to every word like I'm in middle school still. Adtr and old escape the fate too, but only certain songs. A lot of the screaming is over the top in my opinion, and/or the singing is too whiny. Silverstein is the right combination of all the things. Love these guys.
The first Post-Hardcore group I ever heard, and I'll never stop being a fan. for 20 years they've been staples of the genre, practically inventing it by fusing goth and emo sounds with experimental post-punk beats and grooves that helped cement the genre in the early 00's before metalcore overtook it and became the stigmatized norm it is now. When talking post-hardcore, we must remember that it has eras of sound that are very unique. from the post-punk originators of Fugazi, to the Post-hardcore sound most of us grew up with like Silverstein and Alexisonfire, to the glitzy pop-inspired sounds of metalcore bands like Escape the Fate and Sleeping with Sirens. When we combine all three into a single genre, its clear what bands stand the test of time and scrutiny.
I love how this, PtV, and Alesana are the only three actual post-hardcore bands in the Top 10. The other 7 are metalcore.
Sleeping With Sirens, with Falling In Reverse, Escape The Fate and Pierce The Veil are THE post-hardcore bands, for me. So it's pretty hard to choose, but I will have to go with SWS, their music just has some weird energy in it that makes it a bit better then the other. Probably it's Kellin's voice... And Jack's guitar.
by the way. I love BMTH and Asking Alexandria, but I don't consider them post-hardcore, although they sound a bit like that.
Kellin Quinn's voice is something that not a lot of artists have. His range is very big and his talent is amazing. That being said the rest of the band is awesome as well even though they're not as praised as Kellin. Even though their misic may be post hardcore and some people may find that their sound is brutal, their songs always have good messages
I love every single album, the variety, originality, and Kellin's unique voice. The acoustic versions and heavier songs are equally as good, with brilliant lyricism that sticks in my head all day. Without a doubt my favourite band.
My Top 3 bands are in the Top 3! But I don't think bring Me The Horizon is really Post-Hardcore. Kellin's voice is unique among other singers I've heard and I love EVERY SINGLE ONE of there songs whereas I find (only a few mind) PTV songs good but not really make me want to listen.
Best band EVER Danny worsnop ( vocalist ).
Can do it all sing he can do mid range screams
High, low deathcore screams.
Out of the 10 in this list they are the best.
No need to explain. AA is the best with danny worsnop.definitely
This band makes me get to this kind of music.
The soul and metaphor poured into everything written by the band is so extraordinary I don't think any band has saved lives the way Of Mice And Men has. What Austin Carlile has been through and the strong unchanging outlook on life he has just puts such a firm grounding on the band. This band has given me personally such a firm structure on how to live life I don't think anyone could impact me the way this band has.
Austin Charlie is an amazing singer! His vocals are just great! At first I didn't like their stuff but after listening to O.G. loko, I immediately fell in love with the catchi-ness of the "Meet my Dedication, Inspiration" part. Even the band members are great people!
Of mice and men have amazing vocals and great screams with amazing breakdowns.
Greatest band to ever for and change peoples' lives. Truly perfect band.
What the hell? Ice nine kills are amazing they should be in the top 5! I'm telling you TOP 5! They are an amazing band with amazing choruses and lyrics. Listen to what I never learned in study hall or jonathan. Both are great and I'd slap you if you think they're bad
These guys aren't that bad, but I don't like them as much as most of the others on this list. One of their songs that I've heard is good.
They may be newer but they're crushing it harder than I've ever seen a band do it. 10/10 is an understatement.
Metalcore and post hardcore and amazing why are they not number one?
This is one of the best post hardcore bands to have existed. They are the reason these crap bands on top the list exist. They fused old post harcore and the new sound together to pave way for the horrible crap that is made today. There music was so powerful its sad they only played a handful of sold out shows before they broke up. And back together for the summer of 2015 tour they are only playing a handful again but hopefully to test the waters. We may have a true post hardcore band writing music again.
I'm shocked that AOF aren't in the top 3 of this list! Especially since that they're back together again! All of the other bands that are above have no clue what GOOD music is!
Such an original sound to their music and they have influenced many inferior copycats since. Just such a shame that they decied to split!
On of the few good Post Hardcore bands on the list. Also half of these bands are Metalcore
God, Radke sucks. I can't listen to his voice for 5 seconds without wanting to shoot myself. Sad part is, he gets all of the attention and overshadows the rest of the actually talented band. Same for most bands like this one.
Ronnie Radke used to be singer for Escape The Fate but when he got kicked out it he made Falling In Reverse. FIR has catchy songs, awesome beats, beautiful melodies.
This band deserves a spot in the top 5. Theve over came the bs and got the job done. And I've seen them live and I must say Ronnie Radke has the best live performance in the music scene.
Falling in reverse of course! The king of the Music scene. Got the Rappin' and rocking'
They don't just make a few good songs. All of their albums are enjoyable. This doesn't mean they have real nice songs. Picture Perfect, Ungrateful, The Aftermath (G3) are my favorites.
Escape the fate has done an amazing job of creating a beautiful album... 4 times! They are so underrated and they deserve to be bigger that falling in reverse... no offense ronnie
ETF is definitely better that sleeping with sirens. Craig mabbitt is so good at vocals ronnie was great too. ETF is innovative at every music it creates. Deserves to be in top 3 at least.
Escape the fate is absolutely amazing. Enough said.
Underoath was one of my first hardcore bands and will forever be one of my favorites, the reason why they should be first is because of their raw emotion and beautiful rhythms and melodies. They were was before their time and had one of the most talented drummers I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. By the way why isn't Dance Gavin Dance on this list?
Should be number one, they were ahead of their time. Without Underoath we wouldn't be able to enjoy most of the bands we listen to now. They stayed true to their real hardcore roots while they were breaking down boundaries too step by step! Still, they were never really considered as a "sell out" band
Without this inspirational band I bet half these bands on this list wouldn't be here today. Underoath has made some of the the best Post-hardcore/Metalcore songs to date. They never sold out, they just kept getting heavier and heavier throughout their amazing career.
It's funny trying to compare any others on this list with Underoath. They are in a league of their own. Amazing lyrics, melodies..no other band comes close to them in this genre they helped define.
OK so I get the low ranking cause they only made one album but I mean come on it was good.
Yup.. the only album that they made was incredible.. probably the best album I heard in 2011
Technically Electro Post-harcore but post harcore all the same. This band has been using electro and post harcore in their music since they started back in 2006. They are so popular overseas in Europe that they sold out tours for past 2 albums. They express political messages like most p-hdcore bands do and not about emo heartbreak. True post hardcore bands songs are usually so different its hard to classify into one genre, they also use time changes, sing/scream, experiment with ambient/techno/ or effects pedal sounds, and have amazing drummers that do off beats majority of the time. This band does all of that. The only band doing something truly out of the box before anyone else was.
All these new fake post hardcore bands have nothing on bands like glassjaw. A true post hardcore band has ambient sounds, a great drummer that does off beats, experiments with sound, time changes, and meaningful lyrics not just about heartbreak. That's what glassjaw encompasses to this day. Glad they are back together.
Glassjaw is the Godfather of Post-Hardcore. Just like a previous comment mentioned, no one else on this list would even be relevant if it weren't for the foundation this band laid out before the genre even started to blow up at the turn of the century
None of those bands in the top 10 would be relevant without Glassjaw and At The Drive In. Tainting the Post-Hardcore legacy Glassjaw and At The Drive In created in the early 00's by not trying to be different to anyone else. Content with being generic
Amazing band that helped build the genre. I can't even believe they're not in the top 10. Daryl's clean and unclean vocals help create this genre.
Dance Gavin Dance is easily the best post-hardcore band on this list. All of the vocalists (particularly Tilian) are incredible. Will Swan is amazing. All of their songs are catchy and so intricate I don't understand how you people can think My Chemical Romance is better.
So much catchy, it's like find order in chaos.
Great, all of the emos invaded this list and put asking alexandria and My Chemical Romance so high up. this band deserves more credit
Should be Number 1
Matty Mullins sounds awesome no matter what! One of my favorite bands.
They deserve to be way higher! This band is the most amazing band on the planet. They have saved thousands of lives including my own. The lyrics to their songs are very sinister yet meaningful. They have such a good sound to them and an amazing vibe.
They aren't post hardcore. They're drummer doesn't do any time changes or any off beat drum skills just basic stuff I can play after only playing 5 times. And lyrics are all emo pop. I liked 1st album which was the epitome of emo, "vampires,honey" but after that it went straight pop emo with songs like imnotokay.
Someone told me the band was a bunch of rich snobs back in high school at least compared to those that went to that school in nj.
I hate their fanbase, but this band rocks! They were theatrical, incredibly talented, and just amazing. They will always be in my top 10 for sure.
This band definitely deserves to be in the Top 10. They are an awesome mix of post hardcore, emo, and pop punk. Definitely deserve to be in the Top 10
Fugazi essentially made post-hardcore a genre. The fact that they are this low on the list shows me that there is a significant rift between the original post-hardcore, and what is big right now. It is essentially like there are two or three different genres with the same name.
I personally don't understand why the top ten looks like that. Fugazi, Sunny Day Real Estate, Jawbreaker, Jawbox, Rites Of Spring, Glassjaw and Thrice deserve to be up there!
Post hardcore fans, please, vote this band to be number one.
Number one no contest. They literally invented the genre.
A truly amazing band!
Real Post-Hardcore band.
Lots of bands on the list are mostly Metalcore but not really Post Hardcore
How are they not in the top 20? They deserve at LEAST that if not higher. Wires and the Concept of Breathing is one of my favorite albums of all time, and All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True was the song that first got me into heavy music.
If I could kill for one voice, it'd be for the singer of this band. His voice is beautiful. And the screams are just amazing.
Amazing mix of powerful (yet beautiful) vocals, Brian Whiite and the drummer's deep growls put together so pefectly... Nothing can beat it.
Alesana should seriously be no. 1! They are the reason I love post-hardcore. They can put heavy and ballad in one song.. And they are kickass live..
Great band! One of my favourites and definitely my favourite post hardcore one.
I Love you the lyrics
A hard decision it was, between IFAF and We Came As Romans, but I for the moment, these are the best.
People claiming that any of the top ten bands are post-hardcore should die. My Chemical Romance saved your life? Please. They didn't. If 'Na Na Na' seriously stopped you from committing suicide you should go see a psychiatrist.
This band is so underrated, should be higher, definitely...
Wow! There a great band. Should be more higher then 31!
