I think that's just about the funniest line ever read on here.

None of these bands are metalcore, nor are they influential.

No, I think it's probably going to start with Fates and end with Warning.

They are metalcore, though bad choices for a metalcore 'big 4', and theres a SHITLOAD of kids out there who are playing guitar because of bands like Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium. Therefore, influential.

My Metalcore big 4 would be:

Killswitch Engage
Trivium
Avenged Sevenfold
Shadows Fall/Lamb Of God (I can't decide)

I agree with your picks too, I just hesitated to put a7x in the metalcore, because more of their albums aren't than are, but hey.

nope.avi

Earth Crisis
Converge
Agnostic Front
Rorshach

If people are gonna differentiate between death metal and melodeath, I think they need to separate godly metalcore from shitty melodic metalcore.

Well, every album they've released has included melodic choruses, a staple of metalcore, and the first two albums, and the latest album, contain breakdowns. They're not what they once were, but they still hold alot of hardcore influences, IMO anyway.

Hey man I dig that stuff too, but I loves my melodic metalcore, and whether you dig it or not, its still metalcore. And those bands I classify under more straight up hardcore than any kind of metalcore, and I've listened to all but Rorshach since I was like ten (my brother is a huge punk/hardcore fan). When I hear the term metalcore, I think of the more modern stuff, like the bands I have listed
