7 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

Would of voted for them but they're not really emo. Only particular songs are. Danger Days definitely isn't emo. Plus, Gerard doesn't like being called emo. I love this band though.

I kinda don't agree their emo, the lead singer hates being called an emo band. It deserves top on any list though. Killjoys, make some noise!

Best band ever. Whether or not you think they count as emo, they deserve to be on the top of every list.

Because it's My Chemical Romance.

17 Motionless In White Motionless In White Motionless in White, often abbreviated MIW, is an American metalcore band from Scranton, Pennsylvania.

I love MIW they should at least be #3 before ptv and SWS I saw MIW live with AA they're such a good band

18 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.

This band is my first 'emo' band I ever heard, and I instantly fell in love. This band just about saved me from suicide. When I heard his experiences, it made mine seem so small. It made me happy for once. Thank you, Ronnie Radke. I will always love you!

There awesome and I love them so much I have a lot of poster of them and I listen to all there music

I love this band listening to them right now

VERY EMO! very inspirational

It's very inspirational for 16 year old girls who think they're emo but can't name one band that's actually emo. The fact that you think FIR is emo makes me want to hit you with a mic stand, Radke-style. - somelifeonaplanet
