Bands I proudly rep.
1Jack Off Jill

The vocals are if a little girl experienced first handed the dark, twisted side of the world. Traditional 90's punk with a riot grrrl twist.
2Mr. Bungle

Mike Patton's awesome frontman methods + Some of the world's best musicians = One of the most underestimated and influential avant garde metal bands in history.
3The Residents

Dude, its the Residents. Need I say anything more?

L7 are grunge with a riot grrrl backbone. A snotty, L.A. driven band of delectability. Those who don't like it will get smacked with a used tampon in the face!

Once upon a time, Kittie were labeled as nu-metal goddesses. Then they were alt. metal. Now, they're just Kittie. Badass to the bone, Kittie have the looks, the riffs, the vocals, and are just modern metal proof that lacking a little testosterone does not mean that you can't kick some fuckin ass!

Death metal pioneers, Death, are every technical death metal kid's wet dream come to life. Sadly, they broke up a decade ago due to legendary vocalist's Chuck Schuldiner's unfortunate cancerous meeting. RIP to one of the greatest death metal bands I ever heard.

TWIZTID IS NOTHING LIKE ICP! I REPEAT, TWIZTID IS NOTHING LIKE ICP! True, the face paint is in tact, with the vicious rhymes, but other than that, Twiztid is on a whole other level of madman tendencies.

When I first heard of Bis, I was almost sure that they were a pop punk gem, plain and simple. Holy shit, was I ever wrong. Pulling influences from electronica, pop punk and good ol' fashioned alternative rock, Bis is a band to keep an eye on, as you can never be too sure on what music they exactly are. Each album is completely different than the other, which is enough of a reason for them to be on my list.
9Insane Clown Posse

Hate 'em or love 'em, ICP are legends in their own right. With almost every obstacle known in the music business thrown in their way, ICP managed to overcome them, start their own career from the ground up, and have a skyscraper of success just towering over the pop acts of their time.
10Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13

Their name is more than enough reason to look into them. Bottom line.
11Marilyn Manson

OLD MARILYN MANSON ONLY. I like industrial metal, I like shock rock and I like scaring parents. So, of course, I love me some Marilyn Manson.
12Cradle of Filth

Whether they are black metal, gothic metal, or whatever, Cradle of Filth have successfully created their own brand of metal, combining symphonic melodies with ear piercing shrieks and growls from Mr. Filth himself. Great band if you have an open mind and a good ear for metal.

Combining various influences (AND I MEAN VARIOUS), IWABO created a toxic genre of extreme metal that combines unpredictability with chaotic stabs, and is one of the most ultimate tests of love or hate in the modern metal age.
14The Dillinger Escape Plan

TDEP are badass. What more can I possibly say?

Combining tragic and traumatizing tales of abuse from singer Candice's childhood with some really kickass riffs, Eths are another one of my all time favorites in the modern metal scene.

Classic Thrash supergiants, Anthrax are one of the Big 4 in Thrash, and are one of my personal favorites in that genre.
17System of a Down

Dude... their first album. Enough said.
18Tura Satana

Call Tairrie B what you want, but if you're into nu-metal, as I am, then Tura Satana are the band for you. Some call them Manhole, others call them Tura Satana, I call them SICK.

Otep is another modern metal gem, that most either love or hate (common theme???) Say what you want, but their pits are THE SHIT!
20Switchblade Symphony

One of my all time favorite bands EVER. Switchblade Symphony cleverly combines darkwave with a little twist of goth rock and trip-hop. It is the perfect band for fans of goth rock and darkwave alike, and I am going to listen to 'The Three Calamities' right now.

One of my first favorite metal bands a few years back, Mushroomhead (contrary to popular rumor) is actually NOTHING like Slipknot! :O I know, shocker. They actually are a little more experimental than Slipknot, although I'm sure the mask thing will throw off lots of other so-called "metalheads."

Genitorturers are one of the few industrial metal bands from the 90's that still do... well, industrial metal. Having a loyal following consisting of pervs and metalheads alike, Genitorturers are a shock rock band worthy of tons of respect. I mean, would you expect a hardcore bondage metal show to last almost 20 years? Yeah, neither would I.

Their offensive lyrics and live shows are enough for them to be on my list as well.
24(hed) P.E.

A somewhat previous nu-metal/rapcore shadow to other bands of their time, (hed) P.E. developed to cover their punk roots, their rap roots, and be one of the biggest indie rapcore bands going right now.
25The Birthday Massacre

Another one of my all time favorites. Their brilliant music videos, their daring attempts to throwback some new wave with goth rock intertwined (think 'The Cure' with a more haunting melody) and their sheer dedication to their fans are why I included them in my list. Great band, hands down. One of the most promising indie/gothic bands around nowadays.
