Really? This far down the list? They haven't made a bad song. Amazing band with amazing talent should at least be in top 5

The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes. They are known for popularizing punk.

They are epic, their songs always carry a certain message, always warn that there are serious problems in the world and encourage us to face them. Absolutely amazing artists.

Such an awesome band, there best songs gotta be Savior though, if you want an awesome band you should look these guys up.

Sorry, but RA is hardcore punk. Far from metal, I'm afraid. Amazing band though.

190 For Today For Today For Today is an American Christian metalcore band from Sioux City, Iowa, formed in 2005. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records.

They have some of the sickest break downs and one of the most powerful and influential messages. And they are actually HEAVY metal. Full of screaming passion.

Look out for this young band. They are going to rule the world. Like Trivium, they started very young while still at school.

193 Screaming for Silence

If you just give them a try, you'll get why I put this band. They should be way more popular then they are now. They are awesome!

One of the most talented, underrated bands out there.
