In the 21st century, rock'n'roll ain't only rock'n'roll any more. The major stands of youth music of the last 30 years - metal, hip-hop, punk, reggae - have now fused into the loud'n'rude hybrid known as nu - or rap - metal. Rapcore focuses on the most popular, hard-eged acts of today, including Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, Korn and Kid Rock, but also takes a long hard look at where their style originated. From landmark albums, through the most significant performers on the peripheries (including Papa Roach and Linkin Park), this book also contains the definitive history of the movement's roots. The parallel rise of heavy metal and rap is charted, via their merger in the music of such diverse r&b artists as George Clinton, Afrika Bambaataa and Run DMC. The historic fusion of hip-hop and rock is described in detail, via the collaboration of pioneering producers Arthur Baker, Rick Rubin and Hank Shocklee with rappers LL Cool J and Public Enemy, hardcore metal band Anthrax and funk-rockers the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Rapcore takes on board the culture of the new music, its uncompromising attitude and raw politics. As well as being a timely snapshot of the current scene, it gives an informed fan's insight into where it's now heading at breakneck speed.
