61 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!

62 Converge

64 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/

65 Drowning Pool Drowning Pool Drowning Pool is an American Alternative Metal band formed in Dallas, Texas in 1996. The band was named after the film The Drowning Pool.

Their music is so close to perfection...
But still not on this list?

66 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.

Definitely one of the best of the last few years
And a breath of fresh air

67 Beartooth Beartooth Beartooth is an American metalcore band formed by Caleb Shomo in Columbus, Ohio in 2012. They are signed to Red Bull Records since 2013 along with Shomo's electronic act Class.
68 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.

This band has a killer sound

73 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
