How are breathe carolina not higher than BrokeNCYDE they sound better and have better lyrics these guys should be 1st or 2nd

I'm not a huge fan of crunkcore but I do like some songs. My most fave crunkcore band is Breathe Carolina love them

Them and 3OH3 are the only crunkcore groups I like because they're actually good despite being Crunkcore.Hollywood Undead is awesome but they're Rap-Rock not Crunkcore.BOTDF,Brokencyde and Dot Dot Curve are abominations and Limp Bizkit sucks and they're not Crunkcore.-DarkBoi-X

I love them with all my heart

5 Limp Bizkit Limp 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 love Limp Bizkit. I think he is the best RapCore artest alive. Other than Korn. Gotta have respect for Korn. I also like Hollywood Undead, but they don't do what Limp Bizkit does.

This is rapcore or punk rock and not "rock"

This is not rap or crunkcore it's rock!

Best rapcore/nu metal band. Ever.

6 Zebrahead Zebrahead Zebrahead is an American punk rock band from Orange County, California. Formed in 1995, the band has released thirteen studio albums to date.

They are good because they have mixed rock genre's

What the other guy said

How is it actually possibly that zh is below brokeNCYDE? Are you insane?

7 9Lives

It's not nine lives, it's deuce. Deuce is the artist. Nine lives is a community of different artists including deuce. Please correct this mistake

9lives kicks major ass!

I think deuce and Hollywood Undead are the best.

[Rap / Possibly Rapcore] A while back around 2009-2010 Hollywood Undead members "Funny Man" and "J Dog" beat up Hollywood Undead main vocalist "Deuce", and Deuce joined the band "9Lives" and released several tracks dissing Hollywood Undead and even remixed some of Deuces older tracks like "Dead in Ditches" and "Circles"

8 3Oh!3

They have great hooks.

They're the only good crunkcore group if you don't include Hollywood Undead.-LitSavage

They are the best band ever (in my opinion) their style ranges though in different songs.
Some of my top songs include: Black Hole, PunkBitch, Colorado Sunrise, Starstrukk and You're Gonna Love This

9 Dot Dot Curve

Dot dot curve makes my ears have orgasms

Dot Dot Curve's earlier albums are a staple of the crunkcore era.

Not one of these other bands are as consistant as dot dot curve soankys the f n man he is the crunkest!

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

The Contenders

11 Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine is a rock 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.

These guys are definitely one of the founders of modern rap-rock. It's much more satisfying to listen to compared to a lot of others, because there's a real passion behind the fire they spit out, compared to a lot of the vapid talk of many other big hitters. Also my favorite because they're what got me into the rap-rock/rapcore scene.

Best ever! Lots of great songs

Killing in the name, that is all.

I voted for RATM so I could comment. THESE GUYS ARE NOT CRUNK CORE. They're rap rock. Crunkcore is a sub genre of Hip Hop. I love ratm but they don't belong on this list, and neither do Limp Bizkit (nu metal) or icp (horror core)

12 Millionaires

They best female crunkers they make my ears gettin' orgasm

13 Reveille

This band crushes it for me and is the definition of rap metal. They are the reason I continue looking for more rapcore bands, although I have found few that I enjoy this much.

To be honest, I love this band.

Drew's vocals are the best I've heard in all time, and he has also another good band called Genuflect, which he formed some years after Reveille broke up.

Best Songs:

What You Got
Bleed The Sky

14 Primer 55 Primer 55 Primer 55 is an American nu metal band from Louisville, Kentucky, United States. The name originates from the combination of Primer, meaning "something that's unfinished," and 55, which refers to Interstate 55, "the road that drugs run on to get to Chicago through Memphis".

# 1 all time

Yep, Primer's two albums were great. Shame that J-Sin left.

15 POD
16 nickasaur!
17 Attila Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

The best. I don't like most of the bands on here and the ones I do like aren't even rapcore (Sleeping with sirens? Really? ). So Attila, easily.

Great band. One of the best I know

Best rapcore band of all time suck a fxck

Great band

18 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative more.

Best nu metal / hard rock / electronic rock / pop rock band

Lol ofc best alternative rock, nu-metal and rapcore band of all times :D

Rip my childhood 2000-2017 I still love em though :3

19 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

I love sleeping with sirens but they are not rapcore or crunkcore

20 The Medic Droid
21 Forever the Sickest Kids
22 I Set My Friends On Fire I Set My Friends On Fire I Set My Friends on Fire is a post-hardcore group from Miami, Florida. The band was formed in 2007 by Matt Mehana and former member Nabil Moo.
23 Family Force 5 Family Force 5

One of my favorite bands of all time. Their most recent album has strayed from the crunk sound they've used in the past but I still think they're one of the best bands out there for this genre. Great songs, catchy lyrics, it's a shame they're not higher up on the list.

Guys, this band is seriously the definition of crunk core. Highly recommended over majority of these bands I see on here. In my opinion

Only good Crunkcore band, and they're mediocre at best. - wrests

This is pretty much the only good group on here that's actually crunkcore...

Originally called Kaspir, the band was formed in 1996 and, as of 2015, consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Baksh, co-lead guitarist/backing vocalist Tom Thacker, bassist/backing vocalist more.

Its true that most of their work is pop punk/alt rock, but in Chuck and Does This Look Infected? There are heavy rap core elements

27 Light the Sky

Best Crunkcore band that uses screams and techno to the limits

28 Bitch Nicca Please

Sick band who's very true to the classic and much loved Crunkcore sound. They remind me of a modern day Dot Dot Curve(= but with their own original sound.

29 xXxSuicidexXx
30 Womb 2 Da Tomb

Possibly Rapcore or just Rap. I heard their song "Womb 2 the Tomb Sucka" and one of them was rapping with an England accent, so that was pretty dope.

31 se7en

[Crunkcore / Crunk] se7en is the main vocalist of BrokeNCYDE. He does his own thing when he's away from the band. He has a song called "Diamondz and Dro". You can find his music on Oh and this is off subject but se7en looks white at a first glance but he is Asian

32 From Ashes to New

These guys only have 5 songs and all 5 songs are amazing they should be at least in the top 25

The perfect combination of tempo in rock and rap making truly beautiful songs.

33 Let Me Love
34 HeDlesS
35 K-oZZ
36 Antz

BrokeNCYDE member that has solo projects

37 Crazy Crazy Awesome
38 Scene Kidz

Did a cover of Ay Bay Bay

Burning Buildings and Copy and Paste are their best songs 😍

39 Falling In Reverse Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

Ronnie Radke can sing, rap, and scream. Plus the the rest of the band are skilled with instruments. I even like the auto tuned vocals on "Alone." I also like that dub step moment in "Rolling Stone."
