Rapcore (also known as punk rap) is a fusion between punk music and hip hop. The genre is often confused with rap rock, rap metal, horrorcore and nu metal. A common misconception is that bands that fuse metal/rock with hip hop are rapcore, however this is not true, and bands like these fall under the rap rock and rap metal categories. Notable rapcore bands include Hed Pe, Hollywood Undead, Bloodhound Gang and Beastie Boys. .
