    @Zombiproof Incubus played this style on Fungus Amongus and SCIENCE (e.g. A Certain Shade of Green). RHCP were classified with this style during their Mother's Milk time more than twenty years ago. If you don't see how some of the bands fit, you should listen to Infectious Grooves. In my opion th term Funk Metal fits 1000% for this band.

    Why are people saying this genre doesn't exist? it's just a small Genre, that's all. Unfortunately, most good funk metal was swallowed up by Nu Metal during the late '90s. i prefer bands that are funk metal, without being Nu Metal, and that's most of the bands listed here.
