Funk metal is a subgenre of funk rock that fuses elements of heavy metal and funk.
Allmusic has claimed that "funk metal evolved in the mid-'80s when alternative bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More,
Infectious Grooves, Mordred and Fishbone
began playing the hybrid with a stronger funk underpinning than metal.
" Faith No More have also been described as funk metal that dabbled in rap-metal.
Rage Against the Machine's mix of funk and metal not only included rap, but also elements of punk rock.
Primus, a band that has never had a clear genre, have been called things such as "thrash metal-funk meets Don Knotts, Jr."
Living Colour have been cited by Rolling Stone as "Black-funk-metal pioneers."
