How in the world do you intend to have a proper list of metalcore bands without having Hatebreed? They are one of the most solid-sounding bands I have ever heard, and their lyrics are about as inspiring as lyrics can get without listening to a Survivor song.

105 Underoath Underoath

Underoath made me cry several times in my life. They inspired me so much when I felt lost, rejected, lost and broken. They struck me with their message and I'm so grateful to this band because they showed me how to live and let go many things of my life. There are many talented bands in this world, but there are not a lot of bands with strong messages which inspire thousands of people.

You got to be kidding they should be number 1 not 267, all you need to do is listen to the album They're Only Chasing Safety and you'll understand why they need to be number 1

They should be number 1 they're a whole lot better than most if not every band on this list

How the hell this goes last on the list!?

106 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

While they were never post-hardcore, and aren't metalcore anymore, their older metalcore definitely deserves a spot in the top ten.

There older songs are amazing but they aren't Post-Hardcore they are more rock

I love Avenged, but they are NOT Post-Hardcore. Sorry. - WarpedTourObsessed

Honestly Avenged is my favorite band, but as was said, not post-hardcore. They are heavy metal, that's like saying Metallica is post hardcore.

A7X should not be at number 46!? they are an amzing band and matt shadows is an invredible vocalist!
