List Rules Vote up the best musician guests of all time from the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

Joe Rogan clearly loves music and musicians with passion and opinion, so it's no surprise that he's had a lot of musicians and rappers as guests on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Since nearly every episode is about three hours long, there are few other platforms that allow you to get such a personal look at some of your favorite musicians and singers.

On this list, you'll find the best Joe Rogan podcast musicians, some of whom have been guests since before the show's 500th episode! Each of these musicians, singers, and rappers brought something different to the JRE podcast, including mainstays such as Everlast, Immortal Technique, and Sturgill Simpson, to bigger names who showed up for one-off appearances like Ted Nugent and James Hetfield.
