Best Rapcore / Crunkcore Bands

The Top Ten

1 Hollywood Undead Hollywood Undead Hollywood 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.

Their lyrics are genius, they can do everything. They can make party music, slow music, metal, and rap. Can anyone compare?

Hollywood Undead consists of some of the GREATEST musicians I have ever heard! Keep doing your thing!

Hollywood Undead used to be great, until Duce left. I think that if Duce would possibly come back to H. U, then it would be better. Sure, Danny is there. but they needed something diffrent, and that's what Danny offered. Duce just got mad because they all outvoted him on which sound/lyrics they all liked. I love Duce, he can be a bit violent sometimes, but that's part of his anger he as built up from his friends "betraying" him. It is expected. Then again, that's just my opinion on the matter.

Best band of all time, not one song I don't like

Awesome band! Nothing more to say! I love se7en. There Music is great the albums keep getting better and better!

No these guys are meh or kinda suck.Freaxx is their best song which is a mediocre song but a lot of their other songs are mindless screaming.-LitSavage

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

I love them with all my heart

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

Awesome guys this band is totally original, I think everyone should check them out! Seriously keep it up, you guys are AWESOME! Love it...

I love blood on the dance floor, they have a really unique sound, as well as meaningful lyrics, along with joking ones. Overall a pretty cool band. I'm a dude by the way

No these guys are horrible.I listened to only 1 minute for their song Bewitched and then I clicked off.These guys look creepy and weird.-TheCoolGuy1

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

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.

Duece is my escape in life he's the best he should b before blood on the dance floor they suck Duece is the greatest thing next to Hollywood undead so we should make him and his band higher

8 3Oh!3

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 Millionaires

They best female crunkers they make my ears gettin' orgasm

12 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)

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
Unborn
Butterfly

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".

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

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

I was at a concert once and Soul Glow Activatur called themselves "Jesus's bling ring". Seriously, best concerts I've ever been too, having seen them live 5 times - it's always just one big epic dance party.

Can't say anything about their more recent stuff though. They're not really much without Soul Glow, and I think Chapstique and Na Daddy have left as well.

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 reverbnation.com. 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."
