Funk metal

Funk metal is a type of music that incorporates hard-driving heavy metal guitar riffs and the pounding bass rhythms characteristic of funk. The style emerged from Los Angeles in the mid-1980s, pioneered by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The number of performers multiplied in the later part of the decade as the sound reached its commercial peak with bands like Fishbone.
