'''Crunkcore''' (also known as ''screamo crunk'', ''scrunk'' and ''crunk punk'') is a fusion genre that combines second-wave {{screamo}} with commercial {{hip hop}}, especially SouthernRap, and/or [[ElectronicMusic electropop]]. The blend of screamo/metalcore and hip hop/electropop comes in varying degrees; for example, Music/HollywoodUndead utilize all traditional "core" instrumentation (guitars, bass and live drums), while Music/{{BrokeNCYDE}} and Dot Dot Curve only use synthesizers and drum machines; the only overt "'core" element of their music is the [[MetalScream screaming]]. In fact, some bands that are nigh universally associated with crunkcore aren't overtly crunk ''or'' core, like 3OH!3 and Millionaires. Others, like Breathe Carolina and Blood On the Dance Floor, are clearly 'core-influenced but not remotely hip hoppish. Regardless, the crunkcore trend and bands associated with it are characterized by hedonistic party lyrics, flamboyant clothing and vocals that range from rapping and screaming to autotuned clean vocals.

The stylistic origins of crunkcore are blurry; in the late 2000s, the trend came out of nowhere and took {{Myspace}} music culture by storm, seemingly overnight. In the mid 2000s, artists slowly but surely began to bridge the gap between hip hop/rap and "emocore", a curious mash-up -- for example, rapper P.O.S. sampled Underoath and Music/JayZ collaborated with Music/FallOutBoy. Formed in 2005, Music/HollywoodUndead are generally considered an early juggernaut for crunkcore; their major label debut ''Swan Songs'', along with the compilation album ''Punk Goes Crunk'' and 3OH!3's single "Don't Trust Me", helped catapult crunkcore into mainstream attention.

* ChristianRock: Family Force 5.
* DeaderThanDisco: Of the groups even still getting attention:
** Hollywood Undead had basically dropped the style before their first album even came out, going more for a heavier RapRock sound.
** I See Stars moved to a mix of {{dubstep}} and {{Metalcore}}.
** Falling in Reverse are dropping the gimmick again for their third album (all the rap will be relegated to Ronnie's solo work).
** Blood on the Dance Floor will never actually get any mainstream attention because half of the people who ever toured with them have accused Davhie Vanity of sleeping with teenage girls.
** Breathe Carolina went onto producing straight [[ElectronicMusic EDM]].
