    The late 90s Rap/Rock era

    Ouch.. I was just going through all my old CDs and I found Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, and Korn.. How did these bands ever become as huge as they did during the late 90s/early 2000? I'd rank the rap/rock phase in music as bad (if not worse) than the Disco.

    Publicity and fads.

    And very VERY good managers and promoters.

    MANAGERS and PROMOTERS


    that's exactly right!!
    Very very insightful post.

    The music industry has transitioned into a full force BUSINESS in the last 20 years.

    Previous to that, the artistic aspect of it tended to reign out over the business aspect. The fans tended to sniff out a fake "back in the day" and they would slowly overcome brute-force-marketing.

    Today, the business wins out through sheer control over market forces.

    So, what was once reliant on artists and producers
    is now top heavy on marketing and promoters

    I don't know. I'd rather listen to any of those bands than The White Stripes, The Hives, or The Vines or any of those other godawful lo-fi revolution sonic trash piles.

    Korn was really good up until Issues... Untouchables was alright, but I think Issues was the pinnacle of Korn's career.

    I would never call Korn rap rock, rap metal, or new metal. They are probably one of the most original bands of the last 15 years. They inspired a whole genre of copy-cats, which contributed to rap rock.

    I don't know about those 3 bands, but the 90's came out with awesome 'new rock'. I find the music then better then it is now.

    oops wait, I just realized you were talking only about rap/rock.
