System of a Down is my prime example.

Yeah, I believe Nickelback have done some songs in Drop C too even though they're not that heavy.

A lot of metalcore bands are. BFMV, August Burns Red, I think Are You Dead Yet? by Children of Bodom was in Dropped C but the rest was just a full step down.
#12
Lol @ the person who suggested metallica xD

I play alot of Children of Bodom stuff already.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone

+1 SOAD is the best example for a drop C band, almost everything they have should be in it, along with some of Job for a Cowboy and In Flames stuff if i remember right =/
I breathe air.
#14
definately Atreyu I love that band, Deanne the Arsonist is a great one to play
#15
saosin's translating the name
i think that's in drop c
Show me the fever into the the fire, taking it higher and higher.
#16
I think Saosin's guitarists basically use Drop C , Not only "translating the name" Maybe all the song
Recommend me any good post-hardcore band
#17
most metalcore ^ as stated, As i lay dying, August Burns Red ( i recommend you learn some of them, good string skipping etc..) atreyu, A day to remember, COB, Haste the day, It dies today, Killswitch, devil wears prada, protest the hero i think, Human abstract, Darkest hour (recommend) i think some senses fail does too, not all that heavy but fun riffs.

That's C standard,
"True" Drop C is with the 6th string lowed another step.
So learn your tuning names before you look like a complete ****, next time.

And the point of drop tunings is to reach a lower tuning without tuning the entire guitar down. Also, drop C allows a style of playing that's just not possible with C standard.

Btw, to the Dethklok comment, I'm pretty sure they play in C Standard.....Or Drop C according to this guy.

In This Moment plays in drop C I believe (Maybe Drop B)
I can't think of another band who hasn't been listed...

Both those bands play Drop D... at least Lamb of God play drop d in all their songs.

Pretty sure Shadows fall is all in Drop D too..

For a guy who acts like skwisgaar you did a very bad job... Second you need to learn the difference between Drop C and C stanered, much like the difference between standered and Drop D... Third, your just an idiot (couldn't think of anything else)
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all

All good QotSA (and Kyuss) is in C standard. They never use drop tunings, though they sometimes use open tunings.
