In response to jesseyeric's comment:
Anthrax and Public Enemy.
There was obvious chemistry here between the two groups, but it was so good that it partly inspired/birthed the 90s nugget known as the Judgment Night Soundtrack.
Each song was a collab between a rap and rock act, with mostly good results. To wit:
Sonic Youth / Cypress Hill - "I Love You Mary Jane"
Slayer / Ice-T - "Disorder" [Ice-T, of course, had his own metal band, Body Count]
Teenage Fanclub / De La Soul - "Fallin"
Biohazard / Onyx - "Judgment Night", etc.
Dinosaur Jr. / Del Tha Funky Homosapien - Missing Link
Living Colour / Run D.M.C. - My, Myself & My Microphone [tongue-in-cheek, eh]
Aside: I recently saw Kanye West on SNL, and the wife and I both swear buckets the track he was using was by Ministry, but I can't confirm this. Either way, it was better rap-rock than I've heard in a while.
But my fave collaboration will ALWAYS be:
Neil Young and Crazy Horse
