The dubstep and bass genres draw many parallels to heavy rock and metal, with both genres using loud, abrasive sounds to create its hymns. Bassnectar, a flagship producer of bass-driven music, took inspiration from heavy metal and hard rock as he learned to produce, and those influences can still be heard in his songs to this day.

In a twist move, it seems as if Bassnectar has begun recording music with a member of one of his biggest inspirations: Tom Morello of defunct rock band Rage Against The Machine. Bassnectar posted a photo of the two playing guitars in the studio together, hinting at a future collaboration between the two.
