Slapshock is the best...

23StaindStaind was a heavy metal band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995. more.

Agreed they really revolutionized the idea of using open strings to create tonality.

Really? 26th? This is dumb. Just because they're not as famous as Linkin Park or Hollywood Undead, they deserve way more credit than this. It's incredibly rare to find a rap-rock band that actually has quality instrumentals (a lot of them don't even have actual drummers), and these guys take it to a new level. The guitarist, bassist, and drummer all have incredible skill, and in later albums, the band makes a point to show it, even incorporating solos and advanced musical techniques such as polyrhythms. I'd be willing to accept them not being number 1, if only because of the lack of fame, but 26 is unacceptable.

Definitely the most underrated band on this list

25DeftonesDeftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

Although they've become less Rap as they've progressed, they did begin as a Rap-Rock/ Nu Metal band. They're influence from Rap though doesn't just pertain to lyrics, it's present in Abe Cunningham's style on the drums as well.

Deftones aren't really Nu Metal at all, but more of Rap and Alternative Metal. Everything they do is original and no one sounds like them. Easily of the greatest Rock/Metal in history.

27? Are you kidding me? These guys should be number 1! One of the greatest bands in the world! R.I. P Chi Cheng. You were an awesome bass player. - MetalFoREVer1228

28? Are you kidding me?!

26Run DMC
27Crazy Town

Should be higher on this list (if not #1 overall) - the ONLY reason I can even fathom for why they aren't is because they only had one "mainstream" hit ("Butterfly"), which means odds are most people only know them by that one song - which was lame and girly as crap because the lead singer wrote it for his g/f. If people listened to their other stuff they'd realize they sound nothing like that one song.

My favorite songs by them drowning, decorated b-boy 2000 and hurt you so bad

28Mindless Self Indulgence

At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

I wouldn't say they're rap rock, more like alternative hip-hop. Good band, love songs like "Holding On To You" and "Message Man" but this isn't rock.

30DethklokDethklok is both a virtual band featured in the Adult Swim animated program Metalocalypse and a real band created to perform the band's melodic death metal music in live shows. Both bands were created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha. more.

One of the most brutal metal bands I've ever heard. And there really funny laugh out loud.

I have to say... I love Dethklok as much as the next person, but in what universe is Dethklok a rapock band? If you've ever heard the terms "comedy metal" or "metal" that may be a more acurate description.

31Pop Shuvit

Old school rocka rock

32Alien Ant FarmAlien Ant Farm is an American rock band that formed in Riverside, California, United States, in 1996. Their name comes from an idea original guitarist Terry Corso had about aliens and the Earth: "it was just my daydream about our planet being seeded by entities from other dimensions." They have released more.
33From Ashes to New

Probably the best rap rock band around these days along with hollywood undead because linkin park hardly ever do any rap rock anymore

This band will truly be one of the greats. They don't have a bad song yet. They have a very good mix of Rap and Rock! Keep it up guys.

These guys are good they have much similar sound to both Linkin Park and Hollywood undead if you never heard them check them out trust me and Hollywood undead is my favorite band so I respect there souns

I really love this band I'm hoping they get up there

Listen to their songs of 'Invitation to the dance'.

35Inside Out

Swedish Hardcore Rap Metal Band Clawfinger belongs at least top 5 on this list

Why not take a turn by the and find out for yourselves. If you're in to music, don't tell me these youngsters do not belong at the topp of this list. And by the way, why not listen to their first album "Deaf Dumb Blind". Just buckle up and let CLAWFINGER take control off the throttle.

37Methodes of Mayhem
39Styles of Beyond

Styles of Beyond are amazing... Just listen to Nine Thou... - sam117

Great band... Deserves the top ten at least...
