Rap-metal is that mysteriously popular new genre of music which combines elements of rap and metal and sometimes punk or other alternative into one big messy soup. Apparently these bands are gaining great support in pop culture, mtv, etc, but most are lacking in quality. Some examples of these bands are Limp Bizkit, Kid Rock, Zebrahead, Papa Roach, and several other such over-rated bands. Although some might hail rap-metal as a merging of good things, i personally think its the dilution of both rap and metal to the poppy state of total non-meaning
