Damn! that'll teach me to open a thread then answer it ten minutes later!
Check out the TAG website here! :
that's a narrowish view, they play the same genre but that's like saying blink-182 and New Found Glory sound the same...
even if they are similar, when I want to play this type of music (most of the time) I'd like more than one or two bands to choose from
Paramore is cool and all but really I think they are outclassed by their lesser known comrades

I Am King Tony - "Stereo Stereo" available on RBN!

The reason there's a disproportionate amount of "teenage metalcore" (is that even the case still? Let's just say it is) is that those bands and labels of other genres aren't interested, so it's either "wasting time" with crappy metal, or wasting time doing nothing at all.
If that whole "nothing but metal" thing is still true, that is; the way the announcements are set up makes it easy to ignore genres you don't like, and the double bass versions tend to inflate the numbers for metal.

excluding the double bass songs, the RBN is still approximately 32% metal, 30% rock, and 28% everything else
so yes, it sort of still exists

TAG? I'm it? what is this.
I despise pretty much all metalcore, but if the labels and bands are interested then I WANT them to put their music on, even if I don't like it because I know other people do. No one person should get to dictate the decisions of other people. I think the reason there is a "disproportionate" amount is just because it's a more popular, accessible genre with more bands playing it in general.
That said, I am eagerly awaiting Ne Obliviscaris, and Anarchy Club (Municipal Waste sounds pretty good too). I also have a few more recommendations as well.
Diablo Swing Orchestra, a very interesting Avant-garde/ Swing Metal band. Yes, Swing, like in the 1930's. From what I have read, Diablo Swing Orchestra and Stolen Babies both seem to be, or have been on the same record label as Amberian Dawn, so I see no reason as to why some of their music couldn't be put on RBN.
And finally Carach Angren, a Symphonic Black Metal band, with a very theatrical feel surrounding their story telling lyrics. Their label is Season of Mist, and I've seen several artists of that label on RBN before, so hopefully that means good things to come.
