List Rules Vote for your favorite horrorcore artists.

Here are the best horrorcore artists of all time ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. This votable list features the most popular and successful horrorcore rappers and groups. This list of the top horrorcore bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Horrorcore groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all horrorcore bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest horrorcore bands of all time, since the most famous horrorcore artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best horrorcore music.

A subgenre of hip hop music, horrorcore is known for its dark themes, violent lyrics, and hardcore style. Horrorcore songs usually incorporate supernatural, occult, or psychological horror themes. In addition to having exaggerated violence and graphic lyrics, horrorcore rap also takes a more realistic approach to issues like mental illness and drug abuse. The horrorcore genre has been described to be gothic, transgressive, raw, and even disturbing at times.

You can click on the horrorcore band names to see more information about that particular notable horrorcore group. If they're near the top of the best horrorcore artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top horrorcore bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the horrorcore band names themselves.

The list you're viewing is made up of many different artists, including Eminem, Twiztid, and Insane Clown Posse. Rank the best artists on this list to see their way to the top of the list. Don't like DMX or Big L? Vote them down so they don't win.

All important, significant and iconic names in horrorcore music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new horrorcore bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of horrorcore, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into horrorcore music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good horrorcore bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent horrorcore bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best horrorcore bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest horrorcore musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular horrorcore bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

After you've voted for all your favorites it's fun to share the list with your friends to see how they vote.
