The Top Ten

Linkin Park
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.
[Newest]Linkin Park is literally " hybrid Theory". And this is where rappers and rockers unite.

2Hollywood Undead
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.


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
[Newest]I'm only voting because my friend told me too

3Rage Against the Machine
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
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!
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.
[Newest]How can this be below Hollywood Undead? Tom Morello is such a genius!


4Beastie Boys
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
[Newest]Paul's boutique album was their best


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!


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!

7Red Hot Chili Peppers
RHCP are just awesome. Man, listen to Give It Away by em!
Give it away, give it away, give it away, give it away now
They not even rap idiots they funk

8Limp Bizkit
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.

My favorites are Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit and POD. In my opinion, the disc Satellite is a classic from POD that includes a little bit of rae gay.

10Fort Minor
Dude he released one album and its gotta be a classic.

The Contenders

11Kid Rock
He is rap, rock, country and soul...

Do you people forget who stared this Run D.M.C "Rock Box"Know your history.
Run-D.M.C. are the kings of this genre

13Papa Roach
Think you all are deaf.

14Thousand Foot Krutch
If you have never heard of them, then look them up NOW. They're amazing!
If you are a fan of the Linkin Park you'll probably like them. They also have some very thoughtful lyrics

15Insane Clown Posse

16Cypress Hill

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.

18Faith No More
Not as good as Linkin Park, but better than Rage. They're one of my favorite alt metal bands.


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

20Anthrax ft. Public Enemy
"Bring the Noise" covered by anthrax with public enemy was amazing
