If you're referencing Protest the Hero, there's PLENTY of singing in their music. In fact, it's there a lot more than their other metal(core) counterparts.
And the Radiohead news was announced in the rock/metal thread, but not here.
It sounds like he just doesn't like metalcore or the shrieking that goes along with it. Everybody has different tastes, so there is no right answer. It's just that some of you just like to listen to ****** music. ;-)
never understood exactly how they were punk(shape of punk to come? LOL) but loved this cd

They helped kick off the post-hardcore movement. Unfortunately, the shape of punk to come never came.
