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.

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

This band is everything you need

2Rage Against The MachineRage 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.

Should be 1st, best rap-rock band ever! Tom morello and Zack are amazing together!

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

Rage against the machine is the greatest rap/rock band in existence, no questions asked. Zack is one of the greatest rappers and tom is one of the best guitarists in history. Plus they're backed by a great bassist in tim and a fantastic drummer in brad.

Rage Against The Machine are the best. Period. I mean with songs like Know Your Enemy and Wake Up, who in their right mind can positively sit on their arse and say that these guys are not NUMBER ONE?

3Hollywood UndeadHollywood Undead is an American rap rock band from Los Angeles, California, United States. They released their debut album, Swan Songs, on September 2, 2008, and their live CD/DVD Desperate Measures, on November 10, 2009. Their second studio album, American Tragedy, was released April 5, 2011. All of ...read more.

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!

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

WHY THE HELL IS HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD ONLY SECOND?!? HU has slightly more variety than Linkin Park as LP does not make any party tracks. All of the vocalists in HU, so all of HU, are amazing vocalists. Danny has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard, Charlie Scene and J-Dog are just epic, Funny man is just a fun guy, the Kurlzz is a beast. Johnny 3 Tears is the best rapper I have ever heard. He is the only man who can make a party track sound like it comes from the heart. He is also the only man on the planet who can where a butterfly on his face and still look manly. Chuck Norris goes "Damn is J3T manly". Linkin Park is awesome but Hollywood Undead is perfection.

Best band ever

4Papa RoachPapa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

Infest album was the best hardcore rap ever - thedeadman16

Can not say it better then this:
'... Every song is perfect and the sound is just heaven to your ears. '

These guys at least deserve no.5 why are they so low?

5Limp Bizkit Limp 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.

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!

They are kings of rap/rock metal, hands down! - 05yusuf09

6P.O.D.Payable on Death is an American Christian metal band formed in 1992. The band's line-up consists of vocalist Sonny Sandoval, drummer Wuv Bernardo, guitarist Marcos Curiel, and bassist Traa Daniels.

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.

Dude POD have been my favorite since I don't know when. These guys have some really diverse sound and their sings really kill it bro. These guys are sick they should at least be in the top 5.

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...

The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David ...read more.

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

This is nu metal, not rap-rock. Still like them though.

8Beastie 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.

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.
Rip MCA

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

10SlipknotSlipknot 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.

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!

I like slipknot, but the only song they rap in is Spit it out.

The Contenders

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!

13311311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The band was formed in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Nick Hexum, lead guitarist Jim Watson, bassist Aaron "P-Nut" Wills.

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

14Three Days GraceThree Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

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.

I've listened to all of TDG's songs and they sound nothing at all like rap. This list is a joke.

15System Of A DownSystem of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American rock group from Glendale, California. The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. ...read more.

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

This band should have at least 10%

16Red Hot Chili PeppersThe Red Hot Chili Peppers is a Californian funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. ...read more.

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.

for their complete and awesome composition

They are awesome but they shouldn't be on a rock rap band list - Sabbath

17Hed PEHed PE, also known as Planet Earth and stylized as p.e., is an American rock band from Huntington Beach, California.

Hey bartender hit me with a double!

18Faith 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.

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!

Best alternative metal band.
