62 Times of Grace
63 Falling In Reverse Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

These guys should be in the top ten! Ronnie is amazing at writing lyrics, Jacky can shred on a guitar like no other in this music era! Ryan seamen can play some pretty good drums. They are not the best in America, but they deserve to be in the top five!

64 Converge

66 Suicide Silence Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

I was looking through the list of bands you guys have listed here, and I didn't see Suicide Silence. Mitch Lucker was an amazing vocalist, his vocals went great with the music. May he stomp on! M/

67 Escape the Fate Escape the Fate

This war is ours!

71 Skeletonwitch Skeletonwitch Skeletonwitch is an American blackened thrash metal band from Athens, Ohio, formed in 2003. The band currently consists of drummer Dustin Boltjes, bassist Evan Linger, and guitarists Nate Garnette and Scott Hedrick and vocalist Adam Clemans.

Toxic Holocaust > Skeletonwitch in my opinion. Still a good band, though.

These youngsters are the greatest techno skype metal bands that I have ever heard of.

They should be the top 10 because they have been an isperation to people and come one they are British and hot as Mexican chilli!

73 Blood Tsunami
74 Texas in July

77 Fallujah

This band has a killer sound

78 Shinedown Shinedown Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001 and founded by members Brent Smith, Brad Stewart, Jasin Todd, and Barry Kerch.

Because they aren't metal, for one, and aren't even close to new wave of American heavy metal. Clearly.

Shinedown has more hits and #1 songs then just about anyone on this list how are they 66

79 Underoath Underoath
