Easily in the top 10 bands of the 2000's. beautiful example of what music should sound like. Some of they're awesome stuff consists of, Paralyzer, Living In A Dream, Stone Soul, Stay In Shadows, and a lot more awesome stuff

262 Red Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

They are an awesome heavy metal band. Also, they are the type of singers that have most of their songs with screaming but some that are slow or not very loud.

Come on people! RED is one of the best rock/metal bands ever. Great music, great lyrics and great guys!

I love every thing about them, Great Guitar, great Lyrics, and I love their use of a strings section.

RED Deserves to be so much higher. Best screamer I've ever heard besides Ryan Clark.

275 Abysmal Dawn Abysmal Dawn Abysmal Dawn is an American death metal band from Los Angeles, California. Their latest album, Obsolescence, was released in October 2014.
276 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.

They are more recent than a few of the other bands listed but I believe that August Burns Red should be in the top ten AT THE VERY LEAST. They have inspired me as a musician and as a person. They a great bunch of guys and they love their fans. Their music is beyond belief as they create such a great atmosphere when they perform live. They have technical riffs and they have brutal breakdowns. To top it all off their music is giving a positive message.

#236, seriously? These guys should be in the top two hundred. They definitely stand out in the metalcore genre and are not a 0-0-0-1 band, unlike Asking Alexandria. The guitar riffs are very melodic, brutal and technical and the lyrics are some of the most thought-provoking and positive ever. Their music is also atmospheric. - 3seven5
