The Best Emo Bands

List Criteria: Vote up and add all of your favorite emo bands of all time.

Emo artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. This list of good emo rock bands includes extremely popular emo band names, like Panic! At the Disco and Dashboard Confessionals and new up-and-coming artists. This list of emo bands, a-z includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Emo groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all emo bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest emo bands of all time, since the most famous emo artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best emo music.

You can click on the emo band names to see more information about that particular notable emo group. If they're near the top of the best emo artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top emo bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the emo band names themselves.

This list features items like Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance. You get to decide which items make it to the top with your votes. The best items on this list are the ones with the most votes, so show things like Weezer and Paramore some love.

All important, significant and iconic names in emo music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new emo bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of emo, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into emo music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good emo bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent emo bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best emo bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest emo musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular emo bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
