Briefly,I think it's nonsense.
Metal has holy anger . It can't combine with rap .Most rappers works for money. Power of metal can impress everyone.Metal divided to many genres that all of them have some common features .By gathering all these features it can't be combined with rap. Rap has no music , it has merely song . Metal has some instruments .

I'm not a fan of rap metal. Mainly because nothing i've heard has ever grabbed me in the same way as other genre's. I'm generally not a fan of rap music, and just because its amped up seems to make little difference to my ears.

Agreed.
The rap-metal genre actually makes me mad and angry when I listen to it. Not in the good metal way either.

I dont think id say rap-metal makes me angry... it just bores me, and i just can't wait to change the cd to something thats more along the lines of my taste.

One of the few vocalist who does it well is Mike Patton, I mean, to mix rap and metal. Indeed Mike Patton does everything well .

Better said, Faith No More were one of the few bands who did it well.

Faith No More have never been rap metal. The huge success of the single "Epic" is what ensured that the label would stick with them. But looking at their whole catelogue, rap metal, or even just rap itself, only makes up a tiny bit of it. Its like saying Anthrax are a rap metal band, because they did a tiny amount of rap metal songs. The problem (or in my mind the great thing) with Faith No More, is they can't be pigeonholed into one genre, and are beyond simple labels like "rap metal".

As for what I think of rap metal as a genre... as a whole, I don't like it. I love "I'm The Man", Rage Against The Machine are great, and Korn are a very rare band who have done it well and in a unique way. But overall, it's terrible. lol

I like Limp Bizkit and early Linkin Park. Some people may argue they're not even metal at all but I think their early stuff fits pretty well with the rap/nu metal label.

Yes, I'm just talking about some songs from "The Real Thing" album. Anyway those songs belong to the rap-metal genre. Anthrax also did a good work in "Bring the Noise".

A good rap-metal band were Body Count with Ice-T.

But, to be honest, I don't like such a genre so much. I prefer metal without rap.

Anthrax had the right idea that Rap Metal should have been fun. I think it would be a little more appreciated if it wasn't so dark and angsty all the time.

I think it's kind of cool when metal and HC bands present the ghetto attitude through their music, it shows that the lifestyle isn't just for rap music.
as far as bands that combine the two genres, i haven't heard much i like, it's mostly bullshit

Exactly what to me. I listen to metal a lot by headphone, and if with big speaker, I never find any anger provocation by metal, even very calm mood induce. Though a bit very calm leads to emotional mood after I'm out of no music. Rap metal even rap makes me feel more angry and I feel like just could be why it is very good for workout.

This discussion has in opening with the link of research about music and personality which says metal fans are calm and gentle

Rap-metal is a genre? I thought it was the grotesque aborted fetus of early 2000s nu-metal.

Early Deftones albums have some decent rap metal stuff... their later, more progressive and experimental stuff is better.

Not really my thing, but if it makes people happy, then I'm glad it exists. I don't really have much of a right to get into a "trve" tirade considering that glam metal was a gateway genre for me. Maybe rap metal is a gateway genre for others. I'd say that alone gives it a place.

I thought there were a few rap-metal things that were ok. The Judgement night soundtrack was pretty good. The song "Bring Tha Noise" by Anthrax and Public Enemy was pretty good. I can't stand Korn, Limp Bizkit (even though they're really not around anymore but still)... etc.

This. I think of retarded middle-class wannabe gangsters whenever I hear rap, and wannabe metalheads who only know about and care for mainstream bands when I hear rap metal. Both of those styles, despite being valid styles at heart, are seen (by myself as well as much of the metal scene) as a reminder of the bullshit of mainstream commercialized, shallow society. However to automatically assume that all bands in rap/hip-hop and nu/rap metal and fans of those bands are posers is harsh.

One of the songs that got me into metal is "Your Betrayal" by Bullet For My Valentine. I realize now that that song really isn't metal, and they really haven't been metal since (arguably) the Scream Aim Fire album (2008), but I still listen to that song every once in awhile for the nostalgia. Same with the power metal band HammerFall. Power metal, though closer to straight heavy metal, is one of the most melodic styles, and in Europe is mainstream. They're the only power metal band I listen to much (unless you count Maiden and Priest as power metal), but I got into them via the song "Last Man Standing," which isn't all that heavy compared to a lot of their stuff. Granted, I listen to them a lot more than BFMV, but still....

I say just show people who are into the mainstream bands/styles the underground stuff that's considered "more metal," because it can be their gateway to the "trve metal scene," if you want to call it that.

Any Mr Bungle fan will agree with this statement, (especially all of us that own Disco Valante) "Music is Music, like it or hate it, it's still music and it deserves its recognition."

As far as my own opinion some of it's not bad, just have to be in a weird enough mood to listen to it.

Then again I still have a habit of getting drunk and listening to Clint Black, I blame my Texas upbringing. But as I like to say , "As long as your beer is black the music doesn't have to be."

Yeah, the mood I'm in certainly decides whether I feel like going back to some rap/alt metal or metalcore. And most of the time I'm not in that mood lol

But hell, I sometimes listen to '50s and '60s music, or random songs from other styles that grew on me before I got into metal.
