Yeah, like At The Drive-In/TMV/Sparta and TFOT are the best bands ever. Listen to moar!!1 muzak you fool, not these sad, untalentend emokron bands.

Those are actually my favorite bands of all time.
But there's gunna be a mass of trolling morons that will say something of that sort, so beware.

Haha, I felt the world crashing around me when I read the first part of your post. Those are two of my top 5.
I know these lists are limiting, but you missed out so many, a few of the 80s guys could really play. Not just hit notes, but play.
Can't really choose between Ben and Thomas, but since im currently listening to TFOT i voted for Thomas.

Paul Waggoner is definitely my favorite

I went as Darth Vadar to a school dance before.

Sure I got kicked out, but the DJ played the Imperial March and I just felt badass.
Definitely Paul. With Oli and Luke fighting for second.
My band, Escher
My progressive rock project, Mosaic

clearly, the goal is to convert every thread into a discussion about BTBAM

Dean Pleasants, HANDS DOWN whoops caps
Yeah good job making one of these threads where your options are gonna get more votes than "other" and at the metalcore/nu-metal guitarist thread, that was terrible.

To not be spamming I think ima vote Luke Hoskin, slightly ahead of Paul Waggoner altho everyone on this list is a fav of mine
The fact that Kurt Ballou STILL isn't on there, and that Dave Knudson, Matt Hoffman, Scott Mellinger, and Ross Codgell aren't even mentioned is just wrong.
coming to terms with an inevitable death.
i went for matt fox, he's not technically skilled but i just love his melodies.
otherwise i would have gone for tom erak (fall of troy), kurt ballou (converge) or the between the buried and me or protest the hero guitarists.

kris norris of darkest hour is pretty damn good too

biggest crime

srsly. Like 75% of "core" riffs were crafted by Dave Knudsons hands.
coming to terms with an inevitable death.
