Most Talented Post-Hardcore / Hardcore Bands


The Contenders: Page 4

61 At the Drive-In

At the Drive-In is the best true post-hardcore band. Relationship of Command is not only a great album to listen to, but a piece that has become a defining influence in modern rock n' roll. No other band on this list even comes close to the musical influence these guys have had on generations of hardcore to come. I'm no music snob, but everyone else on this list doesn't remotely compare to this band.

If you ask any post hardcore band who their favorite band is, these guys would probably be #1 over and over

Without Relationship of Command none of these newer bands would exist.

62 My Iron Lung
63 Hatebreed Hatebreed Hatebreed is an American metalcore band from Connecticut, formed in 1994. They have released 7 studio albums to date, most recently The Concrete Confessional on May 13, 2016. Their musical style blends influences from hardcore punk and heavy metal; a prominent band within the hardcore scene, they have more.

The Best Hardcore band on this list of course, most of these bands are Metalcore and not Hardcore, I miss Madball and Exploited up here, please vote for Hatebreed

The only hardcore band on this list.

I love this band but this is NOT post-hardcore, its good ol' fashioned Hardcore. Should be like #2 on the hardcore list right behind Terror

64 For All Those Sleeping

For All Those Sleeping hasn't been around too long, but have been able to show that they can play a wide range of different music. From Cross Your Fingers's catchy pop punk clean vocals with amazing screams to their newest album Incomplete Me's harder cleans and screams. Their second album Outspoken is by far my favorite album from any band. Mike Champa seriously is one of the best screamers in this genre. He has the ability to do both high and low screams while staying very clean. In addition to this they are an extremely talented live band and can get a crowd going. They definitely deserve to be higher.

Screaming and vocals caught my attention here! Don't know what every1 else thinks... But my favorite moments are when they just come out of the clean vocal choruses and a truly Epic low pitched scream comes through followed by a high pitched one, everything in the Outspoken album makes me want to head bang

Christian post-hardcore band not afraid to do post-hardcore in their own way. Their latest album got them a lot fans. Gotta admit that they are one of my favorite bands.

65 The Bunny the Bear

The bunny the bear has a great sound to all their songs. If you haven't heard them, listen to In Like Flynn, Your Reasons, or Hey Allie. All their songs are good, and they put on masks of bunnies and bears, it's awesome!

Great band from Buffalo, NY
They are post-hardcore but they show elements of rock as well
Matt is amazing at un-cleans and Chris has a unique range in Cleans
Stories is one of their amazing albums that you must listen

66 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.

One of the most underrated artists to come from the 2000s. Dustbins screams, barks and growls are like nothing I've ever heard, and still manages to have smooth vocals as well. Their lyrics and composition is incredibly intelligent.

Probably the most talented band on the list I like a band that doesn't make the same album 16 times

Please this band should be much higher

67 Funeral for a Friend

One of the best bands in this genre. They honestly should have so much more recognition than they do in today's "scene". I find that their music is too mature for most teens these days though.

Do listen Red Is The New Black or Roses For The Dead and I believe these guys will jump up.

68 Chelsea Grin

Best Deathcore Band Ever Guys..,!

How could this band be ranked so low?

69 Letlive Letlive Letlive, stylized letlive., is an American post-hardcore band from Los Angeles, California. The band consists of lead vocalist Jason Aalon Alexander Butler, guitarist Jeff Sahyoun, bassist Ryan Jay Johnson and drummer Loniel Robinson.

One of those most unique and talented bands I've heard in a very long time. Their lyrics are very well written, but without being cliche or forced. They are definitely worth checking out.

This band has such an unbelievably unique sound that I fell in love with them the instant their tunes reached my ears.

Not the ordinary post-hardcore band. So talented. They bring something new to the genre. Even thought they're all the way down here, you need to check them out. They should be at number 1, they just need to be publicised more. My favourite band, ever, EVER.

70 The Ghost Inside
71 Secrets

More original than most post-hardcore bands out there

This band stands out amidst the masses.

Great Band. Love the cleans and the screams

Sound just as good live as they do on the albums!

72 Glass Cloud
73 Glassjaw Glassjaw Glassjaw is an American post-hardcore band from Long Island, New York. The band is fronted by vocalist Daryl Palumbo and guitarist Justin Beck.

Most of these bands wouldn't even exist/be popular without Glassjaw. They're the best and one of the only real post-hardcore bands.

I thought we were talking about TALENTED post hardcore bands.

74 Atreyu

Love Atreyu, they're by far the best band out there, none of their albums sound alike, and now that they're back together their new album is even better than their last

75 Capture the Crown

This band definitely deserves recognition, amazing screams and clean vocals. The breakdowns are worth praising as well. Although the band is more metalcore than post-hardcore they are awesome!

New band with awesome music and doing pretty good work on lyrics... Even though they shall improve them on next album I hope.
Defenetly following AA's steps but from a different path

76 Emarosa

Why are they down here. Oh my god they are incredible. It's worth a listen if you like pierce the veil and sleeping with sirens.

77 Gatherers
78 Coldrain
79 Fear, and Loathing In Las Vegas

It is amazing that this band can mix such contrasting genres and actually do it well.

Their Electronicore is really amazing, I like it, and the lyric itself is very inspiring

80 Vampires Everywhere!

They are now called "the killing lights". In my own opinion I think they should be WAY higher on the list, because they are amazing. I am looking at this list, and I have to admit I kind of face palmed, some of these bands should 1. Be higher 2. Some of them are, wow... (I understand everyone has different opinions but this band, motionless in white, miss May I, etc. Should be WAY higher I mean ADTR #1? Ok then... )
