Top Ten Post-Hardcore Bands of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Dance Gavin Dance

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.

Should be Number 1

Great, all of the emos invaded this list and put asking alexandria and My Chemical Romance so high up. this band deserves more credit

42 La Dispute

This is my favorite band. All their songs are very poetic. It had meaning that many people can relate to. His voice take a while to get used to, but you'll eventually love it.

La Dispute is the only post hardcore band I listen to and they deserve to be in the top 10. Their lyrics are poetic, deep and intelligent. The singer has a raw yet distinctive voice which makes this band so unique. Underrated band, for sure.

Such an amazing band with beautiful music and lyrics! La Dispute is and always will be my favorite band, I bet if half of the people in Michigan knew about this list it would at least be in the top 15

43 Oceana

The Tide is one of the most well put together rock albums of the 2000's.

44 Northlane
45 A Midsky Surrender

Unknown but amazing all the same. - JamNamZamHam

46 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.

They metal or death metal. W/e u want to call it. But either is number 1 on this list a big joke this list is. Ad2r is pop and nowhere near hardcore that is what the band thinks they are but its not.

Come on... how is suicide silence not number 1, let alone not even in the top 10, this is unrelated to suicide silence, but how is peirce the veil, sleping with sirens and a day to remember even in the catagory of psot hardcore, I think the twelev yearolds spelt alternative rock wrong...

47 Adept
48 Saosin

Great band should be higher

49 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.

Best album of 2014 for their first album, this is the best band out right now! Caleb (from attack! attack! ) is killing the vocals! Lyrics really strong

50 Citizen

Newer band I have become surprisingly impressed with.

51 August Burns Red August Burns Red August Burns Red is an American metalcore band from Manheim, Pennsylvania. Formed in 2003, the group began their first performances while a majority of the members were attending their senior year of high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster, before being signed to CI Records. Afterwards, more. V 1 Comment
52 Taking Back Sunday

Wikipedia classifies them as post-hardcore, and they are one of my favorites.

53 Crown the Empire

This band is so underrated, but their music is simply amazing. They should be top 25 at the very least

Crown The Empire should be higher on this list... they are incredible.

CTE is at least above blessthefall. Best example of the right amount of screams and clean vocals. Look above who doesn't know them, worth looking up, I promise

54 Thrice Thrice Thrice is an American rock band from Irvine, California, formed in 1998. The group was founded by guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi while they were in high school.

Image of the invisible - enough said.

Why are they not higher? Aside from Thursday and Glassjaw, Thrice is one of the most influential Post Hardcore bands ever! This is what REAL Post Hardcore is...not Memphis May Fire, not Asking Alexandria and not Chiodios..Thrice is KING

55 Story of the Year

Truly the best hardcore band out there. They have a different sound than most hardcore bands with more singing and less screaming. They have great guitar riffs and are really close to a metal sound.

The greatest band of their genre, the thought, passion and musicianship behind the guitars, the tastful drumwork, the power behind the singers voice and the harmonies and melodies the come up with are incredible.

Best band of all time

56 From First to Last

Oh come on, these guys deserve a way higher spot. They have aggressiveness not easily pulled off in post-hardcore, and with Sonny Moore's stealer vocals, Matt Good's excellent guitar playing, Derek Bloom's ferocious drumming and Travis Richter's awesome screams they pretty much represent the genre of post-hardcore and influences the entire new generation. Come on people, they deserve higher.

They aren't post hardcore at all!

57 Get Scared Get Scared Get Scared is an American gothic metal band from Layton, Utah. Formed in 2008, they released their first EP, Cheap Tricks and Theatrics, in 2009. Another EP, Get Scared, was released in 2010.

So down? I think they deserve to be up there!

I voted Ice Nine Kills before I saw GS was on here great band though

This should be in top10

59 Hands Like Houses

59? Really? Has anyone ever listened to them? I haven't found any other band that sounds like them.They truly have a sound of their own and deserve top 10s at least. Ground Dweller is one of my all time favorite albums and Trenton sings so well.

Listen to ANY song from Hands Like Houses
I PROMISE you won't regret it!

60 Funeral for a Friend

I love them but they are not post hardcore. People have no idea what genre bands are anymore. They are more metalcore. If u tune out the singer the guitar technique is pure metal. If they had a screamer it would be called metal. But they are more like Bullet For My Valentine british pop metal.

Sort of one of the pillars of post hardcore.

Already on list and not post hadcore. More metal than anything
