Default Rapcore: A dead genre?

So growing up in the 90's, I really fell in love with Rapcore (at least, that's what we called it. I think some folks call it Numetal now).

Rage Against the Machine is the best example.
POD's Brown Album did a pretty good job.
Project 86 and Blindside were other Christian bands that explored the genre a bit more too, but that's really it. I guess maybe early Korn.

Who else made this heavy, funky, groovy music?

Examples for those unfamiliar:

Urban Dance Squad

Probably the biggest hit.

To some extent... 311. "Heads Up", though they were more of a Canadian RHCP clone.

If you're into Christian bands then early Spoken will give off that vibe I think (their new stuff is also really good but it's a completely different sound, look up their stuff from the 90s and early 2000s)

I think Saliva also does this kind of music too

Default Re: Rapture.

don't read too deep into why i may or may not know these bands...
Downset (do we speak a dead language is a good record), E. Town Concrete, early Deftones (although i think they survived quite well), Hed PE, Snot, Darwins Waiting Room, Primier 55, Nonpoint, Stuck Mojo, maybe Ultraspank.

I just went back and listened to some of this. some of it is pretty rough. most of it really. but it was the scene in highschool.
