The Top Ten
1 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 ...read more.

The biggest misconception on earth, no, the universe is that Green Day is better than Linkin Park! The truth is that Linkin Park has established its supremacy over other ' bands and Green Day produces boring music ( Boulevard of Broken Dreams was the only good one ).
Linkin Park produces fantastic songs in whatever genre they choose, ex- Rock/Rap -

So people, Linkin Park is a magical band that produces heavenly music, has sent bands pissing their asses to hell and earned the top spot like a GOD!

I hate the people who sit there and sat LP doesn't deserve top spot just because they don't rap in every song. Rap is a good style, but shouldn't be in every song or you'd get annoyed with it in my opinion. I like the tracks where they sing. And Hands Held High is an amazing song and I love the meaningful rap in that song. LP is the best anyone who says otherwise just needs to give them a listen objectively instead of holding tightly to their favorite band.

They are nothing short of incredible. Mike shinoda is an awesome underrated rapper with many great songs (in the end, somewhere I belong, faint, lost in the echo, high voltage, etc.) Chester Bennington has an amazing voice. He can sing beautifully or scream awesomely. They give the rock/metal effect. Overall, Linkin Park is the best rap rick band ever.

Linkin park is the best Nu metal and Alt rock band EVER! I am not going to say they are the best band in general cause everyone has a difrent taste in music, although they are the best band to me. Although they are not limited ONLY to nu metal and Alt rock which combine parts of rock, hard rock, heavy metal, soft rock, rap, hip-hop and electronica, they also expand to

2 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.

It's a sad day in history that a site called the top then have Linkin Park and another sad excuse for a real rap/rock group above RATM. Sorry but with RATM and System of a Down we are not talking about middle class teens mad at their parents but music designed with a real meaning complimented with 10 times better instrumentals with no need for some token 'DJ/Mixer' cause your guitarist/bassist/drummer is incapable of making a rap beat.

What is Hollywood undead doing! They don't even have a message, there music is a JOKE! RAGE have a message and make it clear, best band ever in my opinion, Morello = Best guitarist ever, Commerford = amazing bass lines, Brad Wilk = epic drummer, and zack = one of the best rappers ever, ONE OF, not the best.!

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.

Whoever put RATM at 2nd must have been not been born yet or wearing diapers in the early 90's. Rage made this genre or at least put it on the map. No one had ever herd anything like it. They were so explosive, moving and enraged. A far as I'm concerned RATM and Stuck Mojo are the only Rap Metal bans I've ever heard.

3 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.

They have a huge variety, let's face it they have probably the 5 best rappers ever in this group, J3T has amazingly brutal lyrics, J-Dog is great all round, his party attitude and his serious, same with Charlie Scene, he has some fairly funny lyrics but he is serious when he needs to be, you can tell by listening to Mother Murder, or Been To Hell, Then you got Funny Man, the party man, he has funny lyrics as well, he is very unique to the band, which I love. the Kurlzz has outstanding screams and puts a good beat into the song, but we can't forget Danny, he has such an outstanding voice and fits perfectly into the band, these blokes together create something special, and there will never be a band like them. They are an only band of their kind, unique, outstanding, they all suit each other, and they know what they're doing, they have songs for everyone, they really should be number 1
No doubt whatsoever.

Hollywood Undead is a Rap-Rock band with members who come from different musical backgrounds. Charlie Scene has a rapping and singing style that are heavily inspired by Eminem. J-Dog has a unique song writing way as just to say bad thoughts you may have and is able to rap and sing like the two were one in the same. Johnny 3 Tears has a song writing style which is somewhat the same as J-Dogs, just say your bad thoughts, and has a strong masculine singing/rapping voice though he can’t perform as good live. Danny may not write in Hollywood Undead but his singing voice has that sound which makes it easy to know if he is on a song though he does sound like J-Dog or former band member Deuce in a few songs, his high pitched voice make it soothing to listen to on soft tracks like Believe and From The Ground. Lastly Funny Man who has a distinct voice which is very low and fits his persona in the songs that he sings/raps in such as Party By Myself and No.5. All in all Hollywood Undead is a ...more

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.

Oh... it seems a lot have been wrong here for example I saw a comment on slipknot... slipknot best metal/rock band ever... yes they are my favorite metal/rock band but.. they are not rap... only spit it out and people=s***... and a lot others like papa roach... great bands but not rap... linkin park are rap but have made without rap... hollywood undead are such an underrated band in the whole world... they have about 4 rappers and they re all great especially charlie scene and j3t... they have a great singer danny and an old deuce they are the best metal/rock rap band here because they use rap and rock and pop... rap rock is their genre and they sound very good...

4 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. They're mostly known for their singles like Break Stuff, My Way, My Generation, Nookie, Eat You Alive, Rollin', and Take a Look Around. They ...read more.

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

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.

Just check out their Metallica - Sanitarium cover, that performance only, shows how great they are, apart from their massive hits.

Limp Bizkit is before Linkin Park.. Great new metal band.. Why? Real hip hop DJ and real metal guitar

5 P.O.D. Payable on Death, also known as P.O.D., is a Christian nu metal band formed in 1992 and based in San Diego, California.

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.

P.O. D are the bomb, listen to songs like Southtown, Goodbye for now,... They deserve first place. Linkin Park can only be first if they went back to doing what they did in the albums Hybrid Theory & Meteora, otherwise they don't deserve to be first

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.

6 Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

It feels your brain and your heart in completely!
Every song is perfect and the sound is just heaven to your ears.

Can not say it better then this:
'... Every song is perfect and the sound is just heaven to your ears. '

Just listen to "the connection", their latest album
and you will find who should be on the top!

Infest album was the best hardcore rap ever

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

Hey bartender hit me with a double!

8 Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

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.
Rip MCA

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

Beastie Boys 7th? These top 10 list are always whack!

9 Bloodhound Gang The Bloodhound Gang is an American rock and pop band currently consisting of Jimmy Pop (vocals, guitar), "Evil Jared" Hasselhoff (bass), Q-Ball (DJ, keyboards, synthesizers, producer), The Yin (percussion) and Daniel P. Carter (guitar) that formed in 1988. ...read more.
10 Crazy Town Crazy Town is an American rap rock band, formed in 1995 by Bret Mazur and Seth Binzer. Crazy Town is best known for their 2000 hit single, "Butterfly", which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and helped their debut album, The Gift of Game sell over 1.5 million units.

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 Contenders
11 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.

Badass band favorite song is middle fingers up!

12 Mindless Self Indulgence Mindless Self Indulgence is an American electropunk band formed in New York City in 1997. Their music has a mixed style which includes punk rock, alternative rock, electronica, techno, industrial, hip hop and breakbeat hardcore.

Bosses! They show people what rock and rap is all about... There techo mix is off the hook... there number 1!

Love this band so much

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.

Because they're the only GOOD choice.

13 Thousand Foot Krutch Thousand Foot Krutch is a Canadian Christian rock band formed in 1995. They have released eight albums. They have also released two live albums and three remix albums.

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!

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...

Christian rapcore I love Christian music

14 Reveille

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.

21 311 311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The band was formed in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Nick Hexum, lead guitarist Jim Watson, bassist Aaron "P-Nut" Wills.

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.

These guys get no credit! The most unique sound in the last 30 years! Should be A lot higher on this list!

Listen to their 90-04 albums and you hear a lot of their rap rock, should be higher on the list

Best on the list, and still making music as the original lineup
