The Top Ten

1
Rage Against the Machine
You wanna get pumped? listen to killing in the name of, and bulls on parade, I'm actually a conservative and hate their commie messages, but their music kicks ASS. btw what is ICP doing on any list that is positive? them along with limp, and linkin park should be put to sleep.
I think Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit are not good bands for representing rap metal, because their style is commercial; I don't hate them but I hate their style... RATM is the best rap metal bands because they have a great mix of the Tom guitar effects, the Tim bass great rhythm, the Brad drumming and the Zack great rapping (I really hate rap, but he really makes a good work in his songs)

RATM is one those bands whose songs will still be remembered and listened to 100 years from now. Zack is a hell of a vocalist and rapper, and tom morello's guitar sounds are totally unique, sometimes weird but awesome. They use really thoughtful social and political lyrics. Should be number 1, but I respect others' opinions too

2Linkin Park
Linkin park should be #1
Then rage against the machine
and I like slipknot but they don't even rap

immabe

I'm angry how everyone disses linkin park when really most of those haters listen to death metal hate rap and say eminem is the best rapper alive. Really shows people that just because you listen to real metal like classical music or have no knowledge of hip hop besides eminem your music is the best. Sorry for going off topic but linkin park is a great band coming from an old school rap fan.
Sure, the other ban s have only one vocalist, but Linkin Park is unique! The awesome balance between Mike's awesome rapping and Chester's ear-splitting screams nail it

3Korn
Korn is way better than slipknot and Bizkit since Korn brought Bizkit out
I'm not a big fan of rock but I still love korn
Well didn't beat LP but at least Rage is but there beating ICP that's good

4Slipknot
Wait wait wait. Limp Bizkit is higher up than Slipknot? Corey Taylor isn't even a full on rapper and he still puts almost everybody on this list to shame. With the exceptions of HU, LP, and RATM. Fred Durst is nothing compared to Corey Taylor, Chris Fehn and Shawn Crahan. Lethal is nothing compared to Sid Wilson. Wes Borland is nothing to Mick Thomson and Jim Root. Sam is nothing to Paul Gray. Jon Auto, you guessed it, is nothing to Joey Jordison, and again, Chris Fehn and Shaun Crahan (Damn, those two know how to multitask.. And Craig Jones is a phenomenal keyboardist considering that it is often drowned out by amazing guitars, drums, and vocals.
Corey Taylor isn't even a full on rapper, he's a singer who raps in quite a few songs, and yet he still puts almost every modern rapper to shame. How? Because Slipknot is (SIC)! Mick and Jim are amazing guitarists, Chris, Shaun and Joey are phenominal drummers, Sid is a badass Disc Jockey, Craig is great keyboardist, Paul was a great bassist, and Chris, Shaun and Corey are amazing vocalists! To put it simply, there is no beating Slipknot!
This band is amazing Corey is an awesome singer/rapper/singer Sid Wilson is an awesome turntableist (he has videos on YouTube) Mick and Jim are awesome guitarists Joey, Shawn and Chris are awesome drummers Craig is an awesome keyboardist and Paul Grey is an awesome bassist overall an awesome band its a shame they aren't bigger than they are.

5System of a Down
system of a down is just purely incredible, although people might listen to them at first and think what the f@! # is this, every single song they have gets you so pumped up, theyre f-ing amazing
System of A Down don't pretend to be weirdos like most bands, they are just general weirdos and that's why I love 'em.
Its so very good

6Hollywood Undead
The best of rap metal number 1

' Sweet if you ask me!

7Limp Bizkit
Why is linkin park number even now? They've left their old style and should not be placed in the rap metal category any more? Limp bizkit is the best rap metal band because it never changed its style and remained true rap rockers! Limp bizkit is the best.
Limp Bizkit is a example of simple and awesome. with a guitar, vocal and drums they create kickass music so they should be #1
Limp Bizkit has the single fastest selling album ever (that is a fact). Limp Bizkit's singer Fred Durst is good at every type of singing, guitarist Wes Borland is the most under rated guitarist I've ever seen, bassist Sam is a boss, DJ lethal is crazy, drummer Jon Auto makes some PHAT beats. Linkin Park is over rated their not all that talented and rage against the machine really why are they even in the top 10.

8Kid Rock
No one grooves like the Kid. The Devil Without A cause spent a decade working his ass off to prove himself as viable artist and earn the respect of his peers. With Uncle Kracker, Joe C and the Twisted brown Trucker band, Kid released some great records such as Bawitdaba, Cowboy, Only God Knows Why, American Bad ass, Forever and Picture. Respect for the Kid.
My name is Kid... KID ROCK!

9Resorte

16Deftones
They don't rap in many songs but they are AMAZING I would reccomend them to anyone.
Listen to Engine No. 9, Back to School (Mini Maggit) or Headup. Those are some awesome rap metal songs from Deftones

MetalFoREVer1228

I like all the song bcos he's simple but the band is the beast

17P.O.D.
Why the HELL is P.O. D not in the top 5? Every song in the satellite album kicks ass.. testify album has a few good tracks too. undisputed best Christian metal band ever... linkin parks new slower style sucks... compared to hybrid theory and meteora... RATM is also good because all of the sounds are made from instruments... nothing is computerised...P.O. D still the best because sonny flows the lyrics naturally wit the music.. doesn't sound forced... and he only screams where its needed and sounds fitting n natural... he can sing, rap, and can even do screams nearly as good as chester from LP... Payable on Death Rules!
Payable on death is a brilliant and innovative rap metal band. it deserves to be in top 5 at least.P.O. D rules... youth of the nation, satelite, school of hard rock, execute the ground, messenjah, alive, goodbye for now, going in blind are the perfect examples of their master works. adding sleeping awake from matrix soundtrack and booyaka booyaka : 619 rey misterio's anthem

18Stuck Mojo
Seriously Stuck Mojo is much better than all of these and all together. All rap metal bands should be like these guys. Their style is very cool. They rap but much more they metal.
Obviously they deserve to be number 1. Come on, it's some pretty heavy stuff they got going on. And their rap is superior

19Thousand Foot Krutch

20Twiztid
Come on its Twiztid they could make any thing sound good

21311
Impossible, how can you best All Mixed Up and Down. These songs create epic rap metal songs and 311 should be better than all rap metal bands except for Limp Bizkit and Rage Against the Machine. By the way, Kid Rock should be higher in the list, too.
The best band for me 311

22Saliva
Dope music for training

23Cypress Hill
I am insane in the brain

24Body Count

25Clawfinger
These guys are from Sweden... And they are AWESOME! Check out 'Deaf, Dumb and Blind' and their self-titled CD from I believe 2000/2001 ("2 Sides" is the opening track on this one) and hopefully, the impress you!
They are fcking amazing.

26Almost Kings

27The Prodigy
Sick ass band for me they must be top 5
Why aren't they on this list?

28Papa Roach

29Faith No More
The band all of these previous entries copy from.

30Relative

31Attila
Pretty much the only real METAL band here mixed with a bit of rap.

32Greyhoundz

33Hot Chick Banged
A fantastic but little known about band, most well known for their cover of The Real Slim Shady.

34Primer 55
Listen to Loose and the big f you

35Crazy Town

36Tech N9ne
With his albums like breaking point he should definitely be up high in this list. Just listen to URLAYA by TECH N9NE

37Sound of Silence
It is the best rap metal band in Cebu City, Philippines
