Best Rap Metal BandsGKW
The Top Ten
You wanna get pumped? listen to killing in the name of, and bulls on parade, I'm actually a conservative and hate their commie messages, but their music kicks ASS. btw what is ICP doing on any list that is positive? them along with limp, and linkin park should be put to sleep.
I think Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit are not good bands for representing rap metal, because their style is commercial; I don't hate them but I hate their style... RATM is the best rap metal bands because they have a great mix of the Tom guitar effects, the Tim bass great rhythm, the Brad drumming and the Zack great rapping (I really hate rap, but he really makes a good work in his songs) - rock2metal
RATM is one those bands whose songs will still be remembered and listened to 100 years from now. Zack is a hell of a vocalist and rapper, and tom morello's guitar sounds are totally unique, sometimes weird but awesome. They use really thoughtful social and political lyrics. Should be number 1, but I respect others' opinions too
I generally dislike rap and metal music, but RATM is something special. Tom's sounds are amazing and Zack's lyrics are moving. They're so underrated but no doubt belong at number one.V 65 Comments
Linkin park should be #1
Then rage against the machine
and I like slipknot but they don't even rap - immabe
I'm angry how everyone disses linkin park when really most of those haters listen to death metal hate rap and say eminem is the best rapper alive. Really shows people that just because you listen to real metal like classical music or have no knowledge of hip hop besides eminem your music is the best. Sorry for going off topic but linkin park is a great band coming from an old school rap fan.
Sure, the other ban s have only one vocalist, but Linkin Park is unique! The awesome balance between Mike's awesome rapping and Chester's ear-splitting screams nail it

Why is linkin park number even now? They've left their old style and should not be placed in the rap metal category any more? Limp bizkit is the best rap metal band because it never changed its style and remained true rap rockers! Limp bizkit is the best.
Limp Bizkit has the single fastest selling album ever (that is a fact). Limp Bizkit's singer Fred Durst is good at every type of singing, guitarist Wes Borland is the most under rated guitarist I've ever seen, bassist Sam is a boss, DJ lethal is crazy, drummer Jon Auto makes some PHAT beats. Linkin Park is over rated their not all that talented and rage against the machine really why are they even in the top 10.
Limp Bizkit are the best. Rollin and Gold Cobra is pure rap metal. Fred Durst is a great rapper and is good friends with Eminem, Wes Borland does some great guitar work, Sam Rivers has a great bass in every track, and Jon Auto can drum like mad.

The best of rap metal number 1
It should have been in at least top 5...
' Sweet if you ask me!
Should be number 1V 21 Comments
system of a down is just purely incredible, although people might listen to them at first and think what the f@! # is this, every single song they have gets you so pumped up, theyre f-ing amazing
I wouldn't of called them a rap metal band but these guys are absolutely incredible, they should be a genre of their own. as far as rap metal goes, I think that Limp Bizkit and Hollywood Undead would have to win that. I love Korn and Slipknot as well but they shouldn't be in this list
System of A Down don't pretend to be weirdos like most bands, they are just general weirdos and that's why I love 'em.
These guys are amazing, but definitely not rap metal - kempokidV 5 Comments
Wait wait wait. Limp Bizkit is higher up than Slipknot? Corey Taylor isn't even a full on rapper and he still puts almost everybody on this list to shame. With the exceptions of HU, LP, and RATM. Fred Durst is nothing compared to Corey Taylor, Chris Fehn and Shawn Crahan. Lethal is nothing compared to Sid Wilson. Wes Borland is nothing to Mick Thomson and Jim Root. Sam is nothing to Paul Gray. Jon Auto, you guessed it, is nothing to Joey Jordison, and again, Chris Fehn and Shaun Crahan (Damn, those two know how to multitask.. And Craig Jones is a phenomenal keyboardist considering that it is often drowned out by amazing guitars, drums, and vocals.
Corey Taylor isn't even a full on rapper, he's a singer who raps in quite a few songs, and yet he still puts almost every modern rapper to shame. How? Because Slipknot is (SIC)! Mick and Jim are amazing guitarists, Chris, Shaun and Joey are phenominal drummers, Sid is a badass Disc Jockey, Craig is great keyboardist, Paul was a great bassist, and Chris, Shaun and Corey are amazing vocalists! To put it simply, there is no beating Slipknot!
This band is amazing Corey is an awesome singer/rapper/singer Sid Wilson is an awesome turntableist (he has videos on YouTube) Mick and Jim are awesome guitarists Joey, Shawn and Chris are awesome drummers Craig is an awesome keyboardist and Paul Grey is an awesome bassist overall an awesome band its a shame they aren't bigger than they are.
For those who believe that slipknot is not rap metal. Nu metal is a mix of rap metal and other metal genres.V 14 Comments
I'm not a big fan of rock but I still love korn
Well didn't beat LP but at least Rage is but there beating ICP that's good
Korn is way better than slipknot and Bizkit since Korn brought Bizkit out
Do you even know how big of an inspiration these are, which have sung with these and which they are inspired by?V 5 Comments
Definitely my favorite Rap Metal/Nu-Metal band. Great bands on this list, but this is my favorite. Huge fan!
Best band ever. Too bad they brock up
Love these guys! Yeah some of their stuff wasn't so good and such. But, this is still an awesome band. Love this music. For sure. One of my favorite bands.
Why is Hed PE better than the rest of these bands? Because they aren't huge (yet) and haven't sold out or gotten pushed by record companies to do commercial songs. And Linkin Park is NOT metal or rap, so take them off the list.
Unique and versatile! Doesn't get better than this
Thank you for sharing this interesting band! Absolutely amazing! Perfect mix of Rap and metal! I liked the "Feel Good" song very much, a collaboration with my favorite. band System of a DownV 2 Comments
Why the HELL is P.O. D not in the top 5? Every song in the satellite album kicks ass.. testify album has a few good tracks too. undisputed best Christian metal band ever... linkin parks new slower style sucks... compared to hybrid theory and meteora... RATM is also good because all of the sounds are made from instruments... nothing is computerised...P.O. D still the best because sonny flows the lyrics naturally wit the music.. doesn't sound forced... and he only screams where its needed and sounds fitting n natural... he can sing, rap, and can even do screams nearly as good as chester from LP... Payable on Death Rules!
1 million times better than Limp Bizket.
Limp Bizket sucks.
Payable on death is a brilliant and innovative rap metal band. it deserves to be in top 5 at least.P.O. D rules... youth of the nation, satelite, school of hard rock, execute the ground, messenjah, alive, goodbye for now, going in blind are the perfect examples of their master works. adding sleeping awake from matrix soundtrack and booyaka booyaka : 619 rey misterio's anthem
Rap metal band. Greatest band all time.
Nice band it all time.
Best rap metal band and greatest band all time
Top 5 Rap metal songs : 1-Petrified;...2-Strange Things;...3-There they go;...4-Spell it out;...5-Cover and Duck.
Best band all time.
All time best.V 2 Comments
I recently discovered this band and I immediately fell in love! Their a great band and very much worth checking out!
Mushroomhead is underrated but they have awesome rap songs. go listen to bwomp, sun doesn't rise, and some of their songs from the first 4 or 5 albums.
Listen to fly on the wall... A prefect combo of rich rock and meaning
I don't understand how they ain't higher
One of the best Alternative/Rap Metal Bands
Look, listen to my voice
If you're making the choice
Tell all the girls and the boys
Either scream or rejoice
Let's make that noise
Either move or we will all be destroyed!
They are not high on the list because they are not well known. Half these bands don't even qualify for this list. Just popular metal bands with a handful of lyrical spit sections.
I love this band. They have a great sound and style.
Reggae, rap, alternative, metal, techno, rock. What don't these guys do?
Epic band, 19 feels a little low though and should be bit higher than this.
They don't rap in many songs but they are AMAZING I would reccomend them to anyone.
Listen to Engine No. 9, Back to School (Mini Maggit) or Headup. Those are some awesome rap metal songs from Deftones - MetalFoREVer1228V 1 Comment
Listen to Loose and the big f you
numba 9. omg this should be at least in the top 3
. rage against the machine
Urban discipline, that's enough.
Who put these guys here they aren't rap metal they are horror core and shock rock with rap
Best %&$@ band Ever The mighty death pop is the best album they ever made
Whoop whoop. INSANE CLOWN POSSE is the Best
Whoop whoop! Down with the clown until I'm dead in the ground! MmfwclV 1 Comment
Slapshock the best filipino band
The best kick-ass rap metal band from the philippine islands!
Pride of the Philippines, second to Pacquiao
THE BESTV 6 Comments
These guys are from Sweden... And they are AWESOME! Check out 'Deaf, Dumb and Blind' and their self-titled CD from I believe 2000/2001 ("2 Sides" is the opening track on this one) and hopefully, the impress you!
Clawfinger rules. Not sure what most of these bands are doing on this list. Sure, put RATM on top and, yes, Body Count must be there, they deserve it, but most of these bands are just for kids.
That's rap, melodic, experimenting, ambient, metal, death, electro, thrash metal... pure awwsomeness
When it comes to adoptinf it as a genre it all started with these guys. And they do it in such an unchany way only pioneers can do. Clawfinger #1 without shadow of doubt.V 1 Comment
Papa Roach should be way higher, they inspired 90% of bands with their sound and attitude off of Infest
Holy Hell... Talking about rap metal who in the earth misses Papa Roach... On no. 24? I mean seriously?
Their first album was so awesome!
Eine der besten Bands der Welt
Should be in the top 3. Most of the bands on here fit the description of Nu-Metal more. - SteelCity99
NUMBER 25? REALLY? Guys go listen to cop killer and you know why this band is badass
Picture this. Ice-T, easily among the 20 best rappers of all time. Now take him and make him the lead vocalist of a thrash metal band that does everything right. What do you get? You get Body Count beeatch

Hands down best band ever! Discussion over
Underrated all the way
Seriously Stuck Mojo is much better than all of these and all together. All rap metal bands should be like these guys. Their style is very cool. They rap but much more they metal.
Obviously they deserve to be number 1. Come on, it's some pretty heavy stuff they got going on. And their rap is superior
These guys should be up near the top, very good stuff! Must listen for any nu-metal fan
As far as I'm concerned RATM and Stuck Mojo are the only Rap Metal bands I've ever herd.
Pretty much the only real METAL band here mixed with a bit of rap.
These guys are the best rap metal they should be No1
Best of all, live like heaven
The others aren't really rap metal
These are the best though better than Linkin Park etc
Limp bizkit and these
Dope music for training
Impossible, how can you best All Mixed Up and Down. These songs create epic rap metal songs and 311 should be better than all rap metal bands except for Limp Bizkit and Rage Against the Machine. By the way, Kid Rock should be higher in the list, too.V 1 Comment
Come on its Twiztid they could make any thing sound good
One of the most underrated rap acts out there today!
Faith No More is better than Limp Bizkit and Papa Roach.Faith No More and Rage Against The Machine should be in the top two they both invented rap rock and Red Hot Chili Peppers and System Of A Down should be 3 and 4 they are some of the few actually great rap rock bands
Better than everything ranked above them, except for maybe Rage Against The Machine.
This is 27? Listen to Epic please. This deserved to be in top 5 - Userguy44
The band all of these previous entries copy from.
I am insane in the brain
Cypress hill are the kings or combining metal, rap and groove - sextysex
Energy, simplicity... to topic! Search on YouTube RELATIVE - We Go Pogo..or Facebook page RELATIVE band. - Roland
Second to slapshock who rock the rap metal fans in the Philippines in the 90's
A fantastic but little known about band, most well known for their cover of The Real Slim Shady.
Not rap metal or even nu-metal. They're groove metal, and I love 'em to death, but shouldn't be here.
I have liked 5fdp from a young age not only do you feel the song the lyrics of their songs mean a lot more, they involve a lot from the real world such as soldiers. It is a very inspiring band and the way their songs are, is unique compared to other bands. I say 5fdp should at least be in the top 10. That's my opinion peace out!
New band that is in the rise. Simply amazing, they are heavy yet poetic and have great screams and raps. Looking forward to the next album!
Why aren't they on this list?
Sick ass band for me they must be top 5
Progressive Rap Rock Band
This is one of the metalcore bands that I actually like cause their unique with their rap. Check them out
Awesome rap metal fusion band. Most bands on this list aren't even rap metal. For great actual rap metal bands out my website: rapmetal. Siterubix.com
I didn't even think this classified as rap metal lol
The best ever
It is the best rap metal band in Cebu City, Philippines
Damn wish I voted for this band. The flow is real.
