Among the first wave of bands to gain mainstream success were 311,Bloodhound Gang,Limp Bizkit and Suicidal Tendencies. Although the popularity of these bands is believed to be declining, some believe that rapcore may regain popularity, with younger music fans discovering bands in the genre. Drew Simollardes of the rapcore band Reveille states that "I feel like lately it’s more appropriate. People are sick of a lot of the stuff that’s out there right now."
