Top Ten Best Rap-Rock ArtistsThe best band, group or artist mixing Rap and Rock together
Linkin Park has people that are very talented, they ACTUALLY CARE for their fans, not just their fans' money. They have a good beat, good singers great lyrics, they don't make songs just trying to say drugs and alcohol are good, their songs have a good reasoning to them.
I have to say all these bands have a future in the rap/rock success game "BUT"! Linkin Park is already there to knock, thoses pretenders back down to squre one. No one replaces Linkin Park. They already burn down that bridge to there succuess, no one is follower. There just listeners.
Oh my god! What the hell they guys are doing at no. 9. They are obviously no. 1. The combination between Mike's rap and Chester's stunning voice is deadly. They just nailed everyone. Come on guys vote for LP.
Linkin park is the best... No other can beat them... There music is unique and mike shiNoda is amazing... He is a true emcee... Chester, Mr. Hann, brad delson, rob... They all are great... Linkin park rocks...
Hollywood Undead are the pinnacle of rap-rock. Sure, Linkin Park WERE rap-rock, but they've moved on, and as such I believe Hollywood Undead should very easily take top spot. Even on their more melodic tracks like "Rain", they're able to blend rap into it without it seeming weird. Standout tracks have fast rapping and memorable choruses, like "California Dreaming", "Whatever It Takes", "Day of the Dead", "Hear Me Now", "Black Dahlia", "Undead", "Everywhere I Go", "Sell Your Soul" and "No. 5". They're still reaching new heights and their music is still fresh and amazing, even a decade later
In the past I never liked rap songs. I thought all rap songs made no sense at all, like those "sung" by T-pain, Wiz and the like. That's when I stumbled upon this genure of rap rock and man, did it blow my life away. Hollywood Undead has changed my view on rap music and once I started listening to them, I just couldn't stop. Explosive Verses, dramatic choruses, and lyrics that tell more than just a story. Thank you HU for introducing me to this crazy genure of Rap Rock and I look forward to your next album. HU for life!
I like Hollywood Undead more than Linkin Park... And I grew up on Linkin Park... I think that Charlie Scene is a better rapper/gutarist than Mike Shinoda and Johnny 3 Tears, Funny Man, Charlie Scene, and J-Dog are some of the best rappers around. I prefer Danny/Deuce (I like both) to Chester Bennington. The Kurlzz is an AMAZING drummer, J-Dog is really good on the Bass guitar and Funny Man is great on keyboard... Don't get me wrong I still love Linkin Park... I just like Hollywood Undead more
Probably my favorite group ever. I love how they combine rock and rap elements into such great songs and each member contributes their own special style to the band. Some songs humorous and catchy, some powerful and full of meaning, but all are fantastic.
Rage Against The Machine belongs to the top of this list because
1) RATM has been one of the most influential rap-rock bands of the 90's and today still.
1) Their songs discuss heavy matters such as politics, racism, hypocrisy, withstanding oppression, ignorance, unity which makes their songs a powerful tools for change.
3) The musicality and technicality of the band is incomparable.
Rage is number one
I understand that Hollywood Undead has great sound and is very pumping but Rage started that and they had a very big message to put out, whereas Hollywood is just singing to be loud. And you can't forget the awesome riffs from Tom and the unique voice of Zach.
It has come to my attention that Rage and Beastie Boys are really one of the few ways to do rap rock. I personally don't care much for LP and Limp Bizkit is absolute garbage anyway. I apologize if I offended anyone, it's just my opinion.
RATM is the best rap-rock band out there. They are a band with a cause, which is really rare. Especially now a days. That's why I always say that the music industry needs more Rage. RATM for #1!
They are the soul reason why white boys are welcomed to the hip-hop world! They never made a bad album and each and every one of their songs are spontaneous and creative to the max!
Come on. How are they not in the top ten? Why aren't they in the top five? Come on people!
They should be number 1
Feel Good Inc, Clint Eastwood, and Dirty Harry are the best songs ever! They combine rock and rap nicely. (and they don't curse every other word! )
Demon Days was pure genius! They are amazing! Damon Albarn at his best!
They are great,but just few songs are really rap-rock so I think they don't belong to this list,still they are one of my favourite bands right now.
Top 3 in my opinion
Limp bizkit is exactly what you want if you want to be gangsta and punk at the same time.
Break stuff, Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle), Hot Dog. Pechyowaa. Awesome beyond belief. Linkin Park definitely deserves numero uno though.
I was there during this time and they rocked.
Idiots! This band is definitely in top 10.
P.O.D aren't very popular but their songs are so great. Songs about love, religion and even politics. Nobody has to be a christian to appreciate the songs, and they have some amazing singles.
Listen to Boom, Southtown, Goodbye for now, Alive...uff there are many more
Now way bands like Hollywood undead and Rage against machines are better then this.
Listen to Youth of a Nation and you will understand why they deserve to be in the top ten.
He is rap, rock, country and soul...
Best rap rock artist
If you are a fan of the Linkin Park you'll probably like them. They also have some very thoughtful lyrics
If you have never heard of them, then look them up NOW. They're amazing!
Why, no one commented on this great band of combination of rap and rock
Cypress Hill is best
Think you all are deaf.
Do you people forget who stared this Run D.M.C "Rock Box"Know your history.
Run-D.M.C. are the kings of this genre
It's obvious Jonny5 actually cares about social justice and environmental awareness. And his "D.A.R.E." verse from Onomatopoeia and "I.R.A.Q." rap proves he can write rhymes. And their live performances are always memorable. These guys deserve more for what they put in.
Really deep lyrics, great beats, and some in general pretty great raps. 5 words: Listen to Fight With Tools.
Linkin Park & Fort Minor, both has Mike Shinoda... So, no doubt that they are gonna be awesome!... But, Fort Minor just killed it!...just released one album, & is at #9...!
Dude he released one album and its gotta be a classic.
What are these jokes doing on here?
Nine Thou is one of the best songs in my opinion, but of course the best is Tonedeff-Velocity. But this is also amazing, should listen.
Two songs like - (1) Nine Thou; (2) shapeshifter.
This band deserves to be so much higher. Tyler Joseph has this innate ability to string words together beautifully. Not only that, he doesn't sing about sex or drugs, he sings about meaningful things, things that actually matter and help others get through their life.
I dunno which I like better, these guys or LP but I like how both bands change up their style each album. It makes it an interesting experience. And the lyrics are way better on these guys, but LP has the memorable guitar riffs and focus more on the instruments than the vocals.
Twenty one pilots changed the landscape of this genre with their debut album 'Vessel'. Instead of rap-rock, they are more rap-rock-pop-electronic, which is much better than some of the other acts at the top of this list.
These guys are amazing. Not only do all of their somgs sound amazing, but the song lyrics are really deep if you ever look at the lyrics. And they are really catchy in some of their songs (Holding on to You).
They are just Crazy awesome!
Some of their songs are just too good such as "Still Around","Touching On My","Follow me Down","We are Young","Don't Trust me"
Just Listen to Once
