This list is made up of artists like Run-D.M.C. and Alec Empire. Make sure to downvote the worst teams/people, because they have it coming. The fun of voting on multiple artists is that you get to make choices like "do I like Saul Williams more than Meat Beat Manifesto?"

The list includes all new industrial hip-hop 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 industrial hip-hop, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into industrial hip-hop 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 industrial hip-hop bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent industrial hip-hop bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best industrial hip-hop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest industrial hip-hop 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 industrial hip-hop bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
