Falling in Reverse was formed in Las Vegas in 2006 by Ronnie Radke just when he got out of prison. Presently, they are getting ready to release their second album

Falling in reverse just makes it on my list of top 20 because of those catchy songs that get into my head Escape The Fate
Craig Mabbit: lead vocals
Brian "Monte" Money: lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboads
Robert Ortiz: drums, percussion, backing vocals
Michael Money: rhythm guitar
Thomas "TJ" Bell: bass guitar, backing vocals

Escape The Fate was formed in Las Vegas 2004 by X- lead vocalist Ronnie Radke. once Ronnie was arrested and taken to prison, the band felt that they couldn't wait for him so they took the liberity to find a new vocalist. It also didn't help the band that Ronnie wasn't able to tour outside the state. That's when Craig joined the band in 2008

Escape The Fate is #19 in my list because i really like how the music the band plays complements Craig's voice. I prefer Craig singing for Escape The Fate A Day To Remember
Jeremy McKinnon: Lead vocals
Neil Westfall: Rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Josh Woodard: Bass guitar
Alex Shelnutt: Drums
Kevin Skaff: Lead guitar,backing vocals

A Day to Remember is an American rock band from Ocala, Florida. Founded in 2003 by former guitarist Tom Denney and former drummer Bobby Scruggs. A Day To Remember is mostly known for their unique combonation of metalcore and pop- punk music style.

I love A Day To Remember's music so much, it was hard to put them as #16. They rank #16 because i am still trying to get to know their music even more then i do now. Rody Walker – lead vocals
Luke Hoskin – lead guitar, piano, backing vocals
Tim Millar – rhythm guitar, piano, backing vocals
Arif Mirabdolbaghi – bass, backing vocals
Moe Carlson – drums

Protest the Hero is a Canadian band from Whitby, Ontario. The band line-up has remained the same since their formation in 1999. They are still a band to this day. They are planning to release their 4th album this summer.

Protest The Hero has some insane guitar rifts that can get anybody moving. I really enjoy listening to their music. Hiii!

Eric Lambert – lead guitar, backing vocals
Elliott Gruenberg – rhythm guitar
Jared Warth – bass guitar, unclean vocals.

Blessthefall is an American post-hardcore band from Phoenix, Arizona, signed to Fearless Records. The band was founded in 2003 by guitarist Mike Frisby, drummer Matt Traynor, and bassist Jared Warth. Craig Mabbitt sang for Blessthefall in 2003-2007 but left to sing for Escape The Fate.

I like Blessthefall for their intense sound and the Jared Warth's screaming. Ronnie Winter – lead vocals
Joey Westwood – bass
Josh Burke – lead guitar
Randy Winter – rhythm guitar
(Touring drummer) John Hartman – drums, percussion Starting in Florida Ronnie Winter and Duke Kitchens started the band while attending an AP music theory class, in 2001. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus was officially formed in 2003 after the addition of other members. The band name, 'Red Jumpsuit Apparatus', was chosen by the band voting for random words they threw at a wall. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is ranked higher then other bands because of Ronnie Winter's beautiful and clear vocals. I can never get tired of listening to him sing. The Human Abstract is an American progressive metal band from Los Angeles, California. Formed in 2004, the group was originally signed to the independent label Hopeless Records

The Human Abstract can play some incredible songs and the guitar in their music is breathtaking. A favorite song of mine is called "Moonlight Sonata (Movement 3)" on their EP "Moonlight Sonata" the guitar in that song is amazing A.J. Minette – guitars, piano
Dean Herrera – guitars
Brett Powell – drums
Henry Selva – bass
Travis Richter - vocals Matthew Tuck – lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Michael "Padge" Paget – lead guitar, backing
Michael "Moose" Thomas – drums, percussion

Aaron Solowoniuk – drums, percussion Billy Talent is a melodic punk rock band from Mississauga, Ontartio they formed in 1993. All of the members of the band are the original members Billy Talent is an amazing band really knows how to put on a great show. They sound exactly like the album when they preform live. Also, Benjamin has a very unique and powerful voice which makes it hard to forget this band. Matt Kean − bass guitar
Lee Malia − lead guitar, backing vocals
Matt Nicholls − drums, percussion
Oliver Sykes − lead vocals
Jordan Fish − keyboards, programming, backing vocals Bring Me The Horizon is a British Metalcore band from Sheffield, Yorkshire..They were formed in 2004. In their earlier days they played Deathcore For those people who aren't familiar with Deathcore, Wikipedia discribes it "In Deathcore clean vocals are extremely rare, and usually have a shouting style. Some of the growl techniques deathcore vocalists use have been described as pig squeals" I really like Bring Me The Horizon for their aggressive form of music. It pumps adrenalin in my veins and gets me exited. Michael "Jag" Jagmin - lead vocals
Brian White – bass, unclean vocals
Nick Miller – guitar
Cory La Quay – drums, death growls
Kyle Simmons – keyboards, synthesizers A Skylit Drive is a post-hardcore band from Lodi, California the band was formed in 2005 but Michael Jagmin has provided vocals for the band since 2008. This band is often recognized from Michael's uncommon singing range. I have resenly found out about A Skylit Drive and i am happy that i have. Their songs and very, very catchy and i love their mix of clean vocals and screaming. Also, Michael's high voice makes the band stand out from other bands. Spencer Smith – drums, percussion
Brendon Urie – lead vocals, guitars, keyboards, piano
Dallon Weekes – bass guitar, synth, backing vocals Panic! At The Disco is an American alternative-rock band from Las Vegas Nevada. Panic! At The Disco also plays Baroque rock which is a type of rock music that uses classical instruments such as strings, horns and harpsichords. I think that i like Panic! At The Disco because of the addition of horns, strings and harpsichords to their music. I have never had herd a type of rock music with classical instruments and i love the sound. I also love singing Panic! At The Disco's songs because of the fact that they use words in their songs that you would need to look up in the dictionary also hardly any of the words in their songs rhyme which makes Panic! At The Disco very different from other bands. Panic! At The Disco Valentino Arteaga - drums
Phil Manansala - lead guitar
Austin Carlile - lead vocals
Alan Ashby - rhythm guitar
Aaron Pauley - bass, clean vocals

Of Mice And Men is Metalcore band from Costa Messa, California, Of Mice & Men was founded by Austin Carlile, who is the original vocalist of a metalcore band called Attack Attack! I'm always in the mood to listen to Of Mice And Men. They are the type of band that you can't get tired of hearing because their music is so good. My Chemical Romance is a Pop Punk band from New Jersey that was formed in 2001. There are many My Chemical Romance fans all around the world. Sadly, My Chemical Romance broke up in 2013 after releasing an album of unreleased songs from earlier years Gerard Way – lead vocals
Ray Toro – lead guitar, backing vocals
Mikey Way – bass guitar

Cameron Liddell – rhythm guitar
James Cassells – drums

Arejay Hale - drums, percussion, backing vocals
Joe Hottinger - lead guitar, backing vocals
Josh Smith - bass guitar, backing vocals

They were formed in 2009 and have released 2 studio albums with their 3rd album set to be released on June 9th 2013. The group is known primarily for their vocalist Kellin Quinn and his tenor leggiero vocal range, which is a lightweight, flexible tenor type of voice (but i like to call it a high girlish voice) When i first heard Sleeping With Sirens, I was AMAZED with Kellin's voice. I've never heard a male voice that could hit so high. Sleeping With Sirens plays incredible music and whenever i listen to them, their songs automatically get stuck in my head. I once had one song stuck in my head for over a month! It's Kellin!! "Good evening Toronto!

I love their amazing sound and their passionate lyrics. Unfortunately, i have not yet seen them live in concert. I hope to see them eventually so i can say i have seen my favorite band. I LOVE this band and always will! By: Vanessa Grassa
