I think King's-X should definitely be in this category. What do you think?
I do NOT think that this article should be deleted, just because it lacks a few references. Funk rock is an important genre in its own right, that deserves its own article. The article on "funk" is already very long. Why not simply link the articles on "funk" and "funk rock" to one another ?
In my opinion the article on "funk" should concentrate on that "funk" which isn't "funk rock".
What happened to this article? The whole history has been deleted. Could you please restore the old version. I think it is okay to remove subgenres or derivative genres such as Funk metal. However this does not mean to delete the rest of it. This deletion has not even been appeared in this discussion!
It's interesting that Prince is barely mention, yet he was and still is still the major practitioner. A modern day Jimmy Hendrix
Does any one remember this?
UK thrash metal never sold in comparrisson to the US acts or German acts and some groups turned to Funk Rock when the scene appeared.
Ignorance and Re-Animator who were previously fully UK thrash metal both did a complete image change and turned to doing Funk Rock.
A simlar thing happened with GnR rip offs Extreme who also changed their sound and jumped on the band wagon and made hit "get the funk out". --Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 10:31, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
I moved the Red Hot Chili Peppers to punk funk because they were much more influenced by punk bands then metal bands and their early music has a large punk sound --Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:22, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
