The Top Ten

Linkin Park
Chester's smooth singing(or amazing screams) and mikes unbeatable raps

beat that
The king of rock/rap is Linkin Park, no questions asked. I had never even HEARD of r/r until them, and I never liked ANYTHING to do with rap before them. Go Linkin Park!
My favourite band my friends get annoyed at because I'm always walking around playing it full volume
[Newest]This IS THE Best BAND! No doubt

2Hollywood Undead
Should be one the first not second! I mean, these people are amazing rappers and I swear this is the best rap/rock band ever!
Holywood Undead has so much variety in their songs... They range from partying (No.5, Everywhere I Go, Comin In Hot), to alcoholism(The Diary, Pour Me, Levitate) suicide(The Loss, Bullet, Coming Back Down)love and pain(Pain, Knife Called Lust, Black Dhalia) anger(Undad, Dead In Ditches, Lights Out)or other meanings(Street Dreams, Paradise Lost, Young, We Are[this is their newest one at the time]Been To Hell, Sell Your Soul, Mother Murder, The Natives)They are an amazing band and of some of the best rappers in the world like Johnny 3 Tears and Charlie Scene... In my opinion they are the best... Better than for Linkin Park or Rage Against The Machine who don't always rap...
Charlie scene is an amazing rapper that needs to get recognised, because I swear he's got the coolest flow I've heard in a long time
[Newest]Best rap rock band

3Rage Against The Machine
Should be 1st, best rap-rock band ever! Tom morello and Zack are amazing together!
What is hollywood undead doing! They don't even have a message, there music is a JOKE! RAGE have a message and make it clear, best band ever in my opinion, Morello = Best guitarist ever, Commerford = amazing bass lines, Brad Wilk = epic drummer, and zack = one of the best rappers ever, ONE OF, not the best.!
These guys are far better than Linkin Park. In fact anyone on this list that I've heard. For me, they are the undisputed Kings of Rap Metal
[Newest]These guys are great. Tom morello is one of my favorite guitarists. Their lyrics are amazing, but its pretty repetitive.

4Limp Bizkit
I eat you alive and alive and alive... All the others don't come close to RATM they have true meaning to there lyrics and come at you with a variety of rap hard rock with bold lyrics and a bit of metal and funk there awesome
Limp bizkit is the real rap rock band that really makes people headbang
Bring it on! Limp bizkit the best and awesome band that I've ever seen! I eat you alive! Fred!
[Newest]Limp Bizkit are awesome! Haters can die. "I DID IT ALL FOR THE NOOKIE! "

Listen to Freak on a Leash! Great song by great band!
KoRn is the best! I could listen to them constantly (:
They aren't really rap metal but still are good
[Newest]This is nu metal, not rap-rock. Still like them though.

I listened to all the other bands above and nothing raps faster or rocks harder. Nothing compares to slipknot should be number one listen to spit it out and you'll realize slipknots the best.
You have to listen to "Snap" too! Slipknot raps really well in this song! And then, "Diluted"... Although, many of Slipknot's songs are really good to listen, and I just can say that this is the best metal band ever!
When I listen to my ipod I go to artist slipknot and then listen to it over and over. They are the best metal/rock I've ever heard!
[Newest]I like slipknot, but the only song they rap in is Spit it out.

Sonny's lyrics are the best on this list. Listen to "on the grind" (sonny's verse) and "sounds like war". You have to be kidding that Limp Bizkit is higher ranked than P. O. D.

I guess if songs aren't about sex, drugs or killing then they aren't worthwhile.

If you want to hear a good rap/rock song, go on youtube and listen to, P. O. D. Murder one.
P.O.D. rocks so hard! Not only that but their Lyrics are better than any other band on this list. In a world where profane rants are the rule, P.O.D. stands out as something different.P.O.D. should be first with Linkin Park a close second.
P.O. D are the bomb, listen to songs like Southtown, Goodbye for now,... They deserve first place. Linkin Park can only be first if they went back to doing what they did in the albums Hybrid Theory & Meteora, otherwise they don't deserve to be first
[Newest]P.O. D IS NUMBER 1... SUPERIOR TO ALL ROCK RAP METAL BANDS... PERIOD! Too many reasons to explain... just listen to the satellite album...

8Papa Roach
Infest album was the best hardcore rap ever


Just listen to "the connection", their latest album
and you will find who should be on the top!


It feels your brain and your heart in completely!
Every song is perfect and the sound is just heaven to your ears.
[Newest]Their my favourite band and I love them even though they don't do much rap above 2002, their still the best <3 team roach


9System Of A Down
Hands down best band ever. They can rap and sing about anything and still be dope!
What? This band is the legend in this this sub genre, I know they are well known in nu metal but in this style they must be number 2
This is a dope band, but its metal, not rap/rock

10Thousand Foot Krutch
TFK are just too good. Listen to phenomenon and tell me they shouldn't be number 1 Their songs all vary in sound yet sound good in their own way. Get to number 1!
That? Is they do not know good music TFK is the best rock band!
Linkin park does not deserve the top spot!

The Contenders

11Beastie Boys
The Beastie boys were the ones who pioneered rock/rap. With albums like "License to Ill" and "Paul's Boutique" which rank on the list of best albums ever, they are amazing musicians. They rap all the time, but also play all their own music. They don't use samples or anything. Rock music that is rapped over. They are geniuses.
Three guys who are among the greatest bands ever, and are still relevant years later. They cannot be topped.
So whatcha want the beastie boyz are licensed to get ill

12Five Finger Death Punch
He'll yeah man love their songs they are the best go FFDP
In my opinion FFDP is one of the greatest metal bands ever but I do prefer korn and slipknot

13Red Hot Chili Peppers
for their complete and awesome composition
The greatest band of all time. A little old but still coming out with good stuff. Don't know this is out of top ten. They rock hard and bust a verse or two.
They are awesome but they shouldn't be on a rock rap band list


Hi disturbed you are one of best band of heavy metal your are my favorite band I love you guys so mach and I am disturbed 4 ever
WE ARE DISTURBED! Just like him! Lovin the band but I don't know why isn't he at top 10?
One of the best it should be no. 1, way better than Hollywood undead

15Three Days Grace
My favorite band of all time. Adam Gontier's lyrics fueled by anything from break ups to his time in rehab. One X is my favorite album with Transit of Venus up there too. Barry stock's killer guitar skills. Brad's a bass god. And who can forget Neil's hypnotic drums.
I like these guys, but this band is in no way rap-rock. It is alternative rock.

These guys get no credit! The most unique sound in the last 30 years! Should be A lot higher on this list!
You've got to Come Original. Nobody above can come original.
311 is obviously top 3 with Rage and Korn

17Faith No More
The most talented and diverse band on the list by far.
They can do rap, soul, jazz, funk, death metal, rock, punk and they have covered songs by deep purple, the commodores, bee gees, dead kennedys and even lady gaga.
Should be top ten in most genres!
How in the hell is the band that invented the genre of "NuMetal, " or whatever you want to call it, #17? They're the originators of this genre and should be #1, no doubt.
No one can top Faith No More's vocalist Mike Patton. Period.
Maybe some of the other bands' vocalists can rap. But Patton can do anything!
[Newest]Listen to "Epic". It lives up to its name.

18Hed PE

Slapshock is the best...

20Insane Clown Posse
These guys suck ass
Man these guyd arr awesome
