The Top TenXW

1Linkin ParkLinkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (vocals , pianist [rapper]), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture ...read more.

Linkin Park has people that are very talented, they ACTUALLY CARE for their fans, not just their fans' money. They have a good beat, good singers great lyrics, they don't make songs just trying to say drugs and alcohol are good, their songs have a good reasoning to them.

Yeah, Linkin Park is cool.
Then comes Hollywood Undead.
And I also love Zebrahead

I have to say all these bands have a future in the rap/rock success game "BUT"! Linkin Park is already there to knock, thoses pretenders back down to squre one. No one replaces Linkin Park. They already burn down that bridge to there succuess, no one is follower. There just listeners.

I love the song What I've Done, Numb, and many others. They're one of my favorite bands - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

Probably my favorite group ever. I love how they combine rock and rap elements into such great songs and each member contributes their own special style to the band. Some songs humorous and catchy, some powerful and full of meaning, but all are fantastic. - SpeakersExplode

I like Hollywood Undead more than Linkin Park... And I grew up on Linkin Park... I think that Charlie Scene is a better rapper/gutarist than Mike Shinoda and Johnny 3 Tears, Funny Man, Charlie Scene, and J-Dog are some of the best rappers around. I prefer Danny/Deuce (I like both) to Chester Bennington. The Kurlzz is an AMAZING drummer, J-Dog is really good on the Bass guitar and Funny Man is great on keyboard... Don't get me wrong I still love Linkin Park... I just like Hollywood Undead more

Hollywood undead is better then all these bands

They're a great band. I love the song Undead, Hear Me Now etc - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

3Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine is a Nu-Metal band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band consists of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, bassist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello and drummer Brad Wilk.

Rage Against The Machine belongs to the top of this list because

1) RATM has been one of the most influential rap-rock bands of the 90's and today still.

1) Their songs discuss heavy matters such as politics, racism, hypocrisy, withstanding oppression, ignorance, unity which makes their songs a powerful tools for change.

3) The musicality and technicality of the band is incomparable.

Rage is number one

I understand that Hollywood Undead has great sound and is very pumping but Rage started that and they had a very big message to put out, whereas Hollywood is just singing to be loud. And you can't forget the awesome riffs from Tom and the unique voice of Zach.

RATM is the best rap-rock band out there. They are a band with a cause, which is really rare. Especially now a days. That's why I always say that the music industry needs more Rage. RATM for #1!

How can this be below Hollywood Undead? Tom Morello is such a genius! - winner333

4Beastie BoysThe Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

They are the soul reason why white boys are welcomed to the hip-hop world! They never made a bad album and each and every one of their songs are spontaneous and creative to the max!

Come on. How are they not in the top ten? Why aren't they in the top five? Come on people!

The beasties ate great, they definitely deserve top five

They should be number 1

5GorillazGorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

Feel Good Inc, Clint Eastwood, and Dirty Harry are the best songs ever! They combine rock and rap nicely. (and they don't curse every other word! )

Demon Days was pure genius! They are amazing! Damon Albarn at his best!

They are great,but just few songs are really rap-rock so I think they don't belong to this list,still they are one of my favourite bands right now. - uros

6SlipknotSlipknot is a Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". ...read more.

They may have a few real rap rock songs (Spit it out and Wait and Bleed) but very great. They write great an awesome lyrics. Listen to Duality, Before I Forget, Wait and Bleed, and My Plauge, just 4 of many great song by this band. Also they experiment with many different instruments (turntables, sampling, keg drumming) which make Slipknots sound distinct and awesome

Slipknot is awesome! They made Nu metal more known. Hopefully they'll get a new album but their famous for have a halt for a few years like the Grand Theft Auto series. But it wint be the same without Paul Grey :(. Farewell fellow Maggots

Korn or Rage may have invented this genre, but Slipknot was the band that made it popular! - ThatStrangeKid42

8Limp BizkitLimp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

Break stuff, Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle), Hot Dog. Pechyowaa. Awesome beyond belief. Linkin Park definitely deserves numero uno though.

Limp bizkit is exactly what you want if you want to be gangsta and punk at the same time.

Idiots! This band is definitely in top 10.

Best nu metal band ever

I like Korn, but I do not consider them "rap rock" since there is no rapping

Music, Lyrics, and style is what that made me a BIG fan of them.
No one compares to them

Why is linkin park up there. They suck now Korn has been around 4 ever and the sickest drum beats

If you have never heard of them, then look them up NOW. They're amazing!

Really deep lyrics, great beats, and some in general pretty great raps. 5 words: Listen to Fight With Tools.

It's obvious Jonny5 actually cares about social justice and environmental awareness. And his "D.A.R.E." verse from Onomatopoeia and "I.R.A.Q." rap proves he can write rhymes. And their live performances are always memorable. These guys deserve more for what they put in.

19Faith No MoreFaith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Not as good as Linkin Park, but better than Rage. They're one of my favorite alt metal bands. - AngryByrd
