Chester's smooth singing(or amazing screams) and mikes unbeatable raps

beat that

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

The best band ever.
With chester's vocals and Mike's rapping this band is truly legenday.
Rip CHESTER 💙💙💙

2 Rage Against The Machine Rage Against The Machine Rage Against the Machine is a Funk Metal 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.

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.

Rage MADE Linkin Park what they are today, Rage should definitely be first

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.

What how Hollywood undead is at3

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. - coccoreccy

5 Papa Roach 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.

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? - venomouskillingmachine

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.

7 P.O.D. P.O.D.

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...

8 Beastie Boys 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

Come on! Top 5, at least.

9 System Of A Down System Of A Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Nu Metal group from Glendale, California . The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. ...read more.

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 - venomouskillingmachine

10 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

In my opinion FFDP is one of the greatest metal bands ever but I do prefer korn and slipknot

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!

12 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Nu Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". ...read more.

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 Pittsburgh

14 311 311 311 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.

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

You've got to Come Original. Nobody above can come original.

311 is obviously top 3 with Rage and Korn

How are they rap rock or rap metal I listened to their 1995 self titled album album and it didn't sound like rap metal/rock it just sounded like pop with rap and metal influeces

15 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

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.

16 Red Hot Chili Peppers Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili Peppers is an American funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. ...read more.

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. - zxm

17 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.

Hey bartender hit me with a double!

18 Faith No More Faith No More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

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.

19 Crazy Town

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

20 Celldweller

It's kinda hard to enjoy celldweller music,but when you do,no music can ever be compared with them
