Best Rock/Metal Rap BandsDglass23 A List Of Bands Who Combine Rap And Rock Into Their Music.
The Top Ten
Chester's smooth singing(or amazing screams) and mikes unbeatable raps
The king of rock/rap is Linkin Park, no questions asked. I had never even HEARD of r/r until them, and I never liked ANYTHING to do with rap before them. Go Linkin Park!
They deserve the the best spot
My favourite band my friends get annoyed at because I'm always walking around playing it full volumeV 133 Comments
More rap rock than linkin park
Should be 1st, best rap-rock band ever! Tom morello and Zack are amazing together!
Simply amazing why aren't they first.
They best band off all time put them firstV 71 Comments
Should be one the first not second! I mean, these people are amazing rappers and I swear this is the best rap/rock band ever!
Charlie scene is an amazing rapper that needs to get recognised, because I swear he's got the coolest flow I've heard in a long time
Amazing rappers, unique style, and Danny's voice. Fantastic trio.
WHY THE HELL IS HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD ONLY SECOND?!? HU has slightly more variety than Linkin Park as LP does not make any party tracks. All of the vocalists in HU, so all of HU, are amazing vocalists. Danny has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard, Charlie Scene and J-Dog are just epic, Funny man is just a fun guy, the Kurlzz is a beast. Johnny 3 Tears is the best rapper I have ever heard. He is the only man who can make a party track sound like it comes from the heart. He is also the only man on the planet who can where a butterfly on his face and still look manly. Chuck Norris goes "Damn is J3T manly". Linkin Park is awesome but Hollywood Undead is perfection.V 135 Comments
I eat you alive and alive and alive... All the others don't come close to RATM they have true meaning to there lyrics and come at you with a variety of rap hard rock with bold lyrics and a bit of metal and funk there awesome
Limp bizkit is the real rap rock band that really makes people headbang
Bring it on! Limp bizkit the best and awesome band that I've ever seen! I eat you alive! Fred!
I'm not very big on Nu/Rap Metal. Nothing against it, just don't get into it personally. However I do like Limp Bizkit because they're heavy and exiting.V 14 Comments
Sonny's lyrics are the best on this list. Listen to "on the grind" (sonny's verse) and "sounds like war". You have to be kidding that Limp Bizkit is higher ranked than P. O. D.
I guess if songs aren't about sex, drugs or killing then they aren't worthwhile.
If you want to hear a good rap/rock song, go on YouTube and listen to, P. O. D. Murder one.
P.O.D. rocks so hard! Not only that but their Lyrics are better than any other band on this list. In a world where profane rants are the rule, P.O.D. stands out as something different.P.O.D. should be first with Linkin Park a close second.
Dude POD have been my favorite since I don't know when. These guys have some really diverse sound and their sings really kill it bro. These guys are sick they should at least be in the top 5.
P.O. D IS NUMBER 1... SUPERIOR TO ALL ROCK RAP METAL BANDS... PERIOD! Too many reasons to explain... just listen to the satellite album...V 3 Comments
I can't see why this is so low
At least deserve no.4
Infest album was the best hardcore rap ever - thedeadman16
Can not say it better then this:
'... Every song is perfect and the sound is just heaven to your ears. '
Beastie Boys 7th? These top 10 list are always whack!
The Beastie boys were the ones who pioneered rock/rap. With albums like "License to Ill" and "Paul's Boutique" which rank on the list of best albums ever, they are amazing musicians. They rap all the time, but also play all their own music. They don't use samples or anything. Rock music that is rapped over. They are geniuses.
Three guys who are among the greatest bands ever, and are still relevant years later. They cannot be topped.
So whatcha want the beastie boyz are licensed to get illV 3 Comments
They are NOT a rap rock band
Listen to Freak on a Leash! Great song by great band!
KoRn is the best! I could listen to them constantly
They aren't really rap metal but still are goodV 2 Comments
Hey bartender hit me with a double!
TFK are just too good. Listen to phenomenon and tell me they shouldn't be number 1 Their songs all vary in sound yet sound good in their own way. Get to number 1!
Christian rapcore I love Christian music
That? Is they do not know good music TFK is the best rock band!
Linkin park does not deserve the top spot!
Beter than no 4 till cive van Be three one under HUV 1 Comment
Since when did they rap
Best band out right now!
In my opinion FFDP is one of the greatest metal bands ever but I do prefer korn and slipknot
He'll yeah man love their songs they are the best go FFDP
I listened to all the other bands above and nothing raps faster or rocks harder. Nothing compares to slipknot should be number one listen to spit it out and you'll realize slipknots the best.
You have to listen to "Snap" too! Slipknot raps really well in this song! And then, "Diluted"... Although, many of Slipknot's songs are really good to listen, and I just can say that this is the best metal band ever!
When I listen to my ipod I go to artist slipknot and then listen to it over and over. They are the best metal/rock I've ever heard!
Dude slipknot is so hardcore defiantly ins number one forget Linkin Park it's not heavy enoughV 3 Comments
Because they're the only GOOD choice.
Love this band so much
Bosses! They show people what rock and rap is all about... There techo mix is off the hook... there number 1!
This is CRAP! When I was 9 and found out about this band I said to my parents “ SOME WANNABE METAL BAND THAT I NEVER HEARD OF SCROLLS INTO METAL AND THINKS they're BEST! ” I mean bruh first of all that’s a crappy band name. Why not The LAAke Bodom murder, or Postmortem Dead Bodies, or The Kingdom Of The Decapitated. If they are more like pop rock. And that crappy and they knew it they could’ve renamed themselves Potty Fool Stupids, or Fool farty fatties.
Hi disturbed you are one of best band of heavy metal your are my favorite band I love you guys so mach and I am disturbed 4 ever
WE ARE DISTURBED! Just like him! Lovin the band but I don't know why isn't he at top 10?
One of the best it should be no. 1, way better than Hollywood undead
They aren't rapV 3 Comments
Hands down, #1.
Um he easily greatest Rap Rock artist. Plays around 40 instruments can Rap can sing,can scream. Can do Rap,Rock,metal,country,southern rock,blues,funk,soul,jazz a lot of time in the same song. His band either Twisted Brown Trucker or Howling Diablos ( for jazz stuff) obliterate the talent of a Linkin Park. He has sold the most of the genre. Had hits on every major chart.
Greatly under appreciated.
Best on the list, and still making music as the original lineup
If their only stand-out song was Down, they would deserve a place on this list. However, it isn't, so they deserve a higher place on this list. - ThatoneMetalhead
These guys get no credit! The most unique sound in the last 30 years! Should be A lot higher on this list!V 7 Comments
Alternative Rock Band not Rap even a bit. - Soulstealer
My favorite band of all time. Adam Gontier's lyrics fueled by anything from break ups to his time in rehab. One X is my favorite album with Transit of Venus up there too. Barry stock's killer guitar skills. Brad's a bass god. And who can forget Neil's hypnotic drums.
Three Days Grace is my favourite band, but they are not rap rock. They're alternative rock. There is only one song from them that has rapping, but not a lot of people know about it. It's called This Movie, which is from their demo album that only has three other songs on it, and I'm pretty sure it's from 1997, but other than that, they only have a lead vocalist and a backup vocalist.
I like these guys, but this band is in no way rap-rock. It is alternative rock.V 3 Comments
Should be number 1...!
Not Rap Rock/Metal it's Alternative Metal. - Soulstealer
Hands down best band ever. They can rap and sing about anything and still be dope!
What? This band is the legend in this this sub genre, I know they are well known in nu metal but in this style they must be number 2
This is a dope band, but its metal, not rap/rockV 5 Comments
The most talented and diverse band on the list by far.
They can do rap, soul, jazz, funk, death metal, rock, punk and they have covered songs by deep purple, the commodores, bee gees, dead kennedys and even lady gaga.
Should be top ten in most genres!
How in the hell is the band that invented the genre of "NuMetal, " or whatever you want to call it, #17? They're the originators of this genre and should be #1, no doubt.
No one can top Faith No More's vocalist Mike Patton. Period.
Maybe some of the other bands' vocalists can rap. But Patton can do anything!
Best alternative metal band.V 4 Comments
What's Jonathan Davis' brother?
The greatest band of all time. A little old but still coming out with good stuff. Don't know this is out of top ten. They rock hard and bust a verse or two.
for their complete and awesome composition
Listen to "Give It Away" and you'll understand why this should at least be in the top 10
Yes, they are rap rock band. But most of their greatest songs don't have rapping. - zxmV 2 Comments
These guys suck ass
Man these guyd arr awesome
The interesting thing about Celldweller is that he makes most (if not all) of his music BY HIMSELF. - ThatoneMetalhead
Great band... Deserves the top ten at least...
It's kinda hard to enjoy celldweller music,but when you do,no music can ever be compared with them
Slapshock is the best...
Are you kidding since when did Staind rap, They're Alternative Metal/Post-Grunge. - Soulstealer
Agreed they really revolutionized the idea of using open strings to create tonality.
Their sound was so good.
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
24th! Get back! Get back! Get Back!
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
Hands down the best rock band with rap in their music!
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.
THEY ARE THE BEST
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?!V 1 Comment
Come on! WALK THIS WAY! HAVE ANY OF YOU PEOPLE HEARD THIS SONG? SO COOL YA YOU SHOULD HEAR IT IT'S GOOD THE ONE WITH AEROSMITH YAA
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 thereV 1 Comment
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.
Shapeshifter 2nd Best Song. Celldweller featuring song. Need for speed music it.
I love this band
The best band
Styles of Beyond are amazing... Just listen to Nine Thou... - sam117V 1 Comment
Old school rocka rock
May be a band out of Canada, but they are the best mix of everything good about rock/rap
Listen to their songs of 'Invitation to the dance'.
Swedish Hardcore Rap Metal Band Clawfinger belongs at least top 5 on this list
Why not take a turn by the GROOVSHARK.com 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.
I'm not sure if this is the right band but there pretty awesome if so
Bring the noise!
