Funk metal (also known as thrash funk or punk-funk) is a fusion genre of funk rock and alternative metal which infuses heavy metal music (often thrash metal) with elements of funk and punk rock. It was prevalent in the mainstream during the late 1980s and early 1990s, as part of the alternative metal movement. The genre has been described as a "brief but extremely media-hyped stylistic fad".

Funk metal has become a mostly-forgotten and d genre. It's the the sound that birthed the 311, Sugar Ray, Incubus, and other less popular, bass-slapping headbangers with names that certainly contribute to memories of the style as little more than a garish curio: Style Monkeez, Psychofunkapus, Guano Apes, Super Junky Monkey. Most of it sounds dated as hell. The hybrid genre only existed in the mainstream for a few years, but it eventually gave birth to another genre: nu metal
