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!
My favourite band my friends get annoyed at because I'm always walking around playing it full volume

Should be 1st, best rap-rock band ever! Tom morello and Zack are amazing together!
These guys are far better than Linkin Park. In fact anyone on this list that I've heard. For me, they are the undisputed Kings of Rap Metal
Rage against the machine is the greatest rap/rock band in existence, no questions asked. Zack is one of the greatest rappers and tom is one of the best guitarists in history. Plus they're backed by a great bassist in tim and a fantastic drummer in brad.
Ratm seriously kicks ass, way better than linkin parkV 66 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
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.
Hollywood undead should be ahead of linkin park only because hollywood undead is more rap rock in my opinion than linkin park ever wasV 129 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!
Just check out their Metallica - Sanitarium cover, that performance only, shows how great they are, apart from their massive hits. - coccoreccyV 13 Comments
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. '
These guys at least deserve no.5 why are they so low?
How the hell is Limp Bizkit above them? - venomouskillingmachineV 4 Comments
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 good
This is nu metal, not rap-rock. Still like them though.V 1 Comment
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 ill
They are ill.V 2 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.
They blew my mind in 1999 when I first saw the Southtown video on MTV. Never new a Christian band could sound like that. Pioneers for sure.V 3 Comments
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
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/rock
They have to be #1 - venomouskillingmachineV 4 Comments
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!
I accept why Linkin Park is 1st
But TFK must be in 2nd
Ever listened to Phenomenon...
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!
There pretty cool I got mad because there concert got cancelled in PittsburghV 3 Comments
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
These guys get no credit! The most unique sound in the last 30 years! Should be A lot higher on this list!
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
Listen to their 90-04 albums and you hear a lot of their rap rock, should be higher on the list
Top 3 easilyV 5 Comments
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.
I love Three Days Grace, but there's only one song from them with rapping.V 2 Comments
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
Hey bartender hit me with a double!
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!
Should be in top 5 at least they were one of the inventors of rap rock and FNM is better than most of these bands.My top 5:Beastie Boys,Faith No More,Rage Against The Machine,Red Hot Chili Peppers,and System Of A Down.V 4 Comments
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
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
These guys suck ass
Man these guyd arr awesome
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.
Slapshock is the best...
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 listV 1 Comment
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
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
Bosses! They show people what rock and rap is all about... There techo mix is off the hook... there number 1!V 2 Comments
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.
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
Old school rocka rock
Should be number 1...!
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!
Styles of Beyond are amazing... Just listen to Nine Thou... - sam117
Great band... Deserves the top ten at least...
Deserves a lot more than 47 and 0% vote.
Badass band favorite song is middle fingers up!
