The Contenders: Page 2

21 Hoobastank Hoobastank Hoobastank is an American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California with lead singer Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen.

In my opinion, this is the best, but I didn't listened to some bands over there yet :) Anyway, you all should try to listen to that! It's pure energy, and so original, though it was released in 1998.

They sure don't make basketball shorts is a great album, don't fool yourself into thinking that hoobastank are only capable of making stuff like the reason.

What a good funk band, it's a shame they sold out to pop rock. - metaldude8

23 Atom Seed
24 Screaming Headless Torsos

No Funk Metal list is complete without SHT. They redefined the genre. This is Funk Metal crossover in the purest sense. I love most of the bands mentioned above... But if you want to venture into less obvious options, I would say the Torsos are actually THE Funk Metal band.

25 Nuclear Rabbit

Pretty phat band drawing influence from no other than fishbone and bad brains, can be described as a mix between primus and mr bungle.

33 Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney.

I don't completely get why Jane is living in somebodies basement. Hey whatever, nobody is perfect!
