  1. Paramore dont even deserve to be in the list they’re shit compared to the others

  2. I Love MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE

  3. Totally agree, though Lostprophets should be in there some where

  4. fuuuuck my chemical romance. why are all these shitty bands so close to number one and the best ones are so far back? wheres the get up kids or like you said, the lostprophets? and green day’s new stuff? really? but what boggles my mind is how the hell does 303 beat the starting line’s best of me. thats an essential song of our scene.

  5. Glad to see Muse is on there twice, but not with hysteria? the song is genius
