The Top TenXW
This list makes me want to leave this site. Because of the people being rustled AND the people loving this bland troll. People need to buck their ideas up or else this site is gonna become nothing more than a playground for trolls and their fans... and no one falling for them. - IronSabbathPriest
More users got rustled with other trolls. Like Jbl for example. Even I got rustled by her. Not as badly as others did though. - IronSabbathPriest
Hey there's a reason my favorite type of rock is "pop" rock. - ProPanda
Absolutely not! Rock and metal lyrics are about thing like politics, war, religion, and creative things while pop is just about love and sex. - PhantomMilitia
Rock has better lyrics because Rock is actually creative. - DarkenedBrutalityV11 Comments
This is actually a pretty good point. Some rock fans pretty much bash other genres based on a couple of people in the mainstream. Like, if you go to the underground, you will find some better rap & pop music. If you're a rock fan and you don't do that, cheers to you. - djpenquin999
Is it because they didn't make lists like these "Reasons Why Breadwinners is Better Than Pink Floyd" comparing a cartoon with a band - zxm
When I see a Barney fan watching Barney I can't help but imagine a crying baby - TwilightKitsune
Me too. Whenever I see a Disney fan watching Liv and Maddie, I can't help but imagine a crying baby. - TheYoshiPyro64
This is a great point - NateawesomenessV7 Comments
There are guitar solos longer than 1 minute. And it doesn't matter. A metal or hard rock guitar solo of 2 minutes can be stretched to 10 minutes if played slowly. All it matters how many chords you play. And this takes talent. And it's better if you play those chords faster. - zxm
Hmm Rap and Pop have worse choruses and verses guitar solos however take ACTUAL talent. - BoredJeff02
No offense, but many songs have solos that last for more than 1 minute. - zxm
All they're doing is just hitting a bunch of random notes at high speed. Rappers and popstars don't waste their time with stupid guitar solos. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocksV5 Comments
You think this is a bad thing? Thank God most of the rock songs don't have rapping. - Metal_Treasure
Um have you heard of nu metal bands like Linkin Park and Rage Against the Machine? They rap quite a bit... - BoredJeff02
There's a a genre called rap-rock - zxm
Linkin park, bro. - AnonymousChickV6 Comments
No, Rock Music requires a lot of talent. Musicians who play in prog rock bands like King Crimson and Genesis probably have a lot more talent than musicians who just rap all day long like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj.
It requires a lot of talent, vocals, guitar, drums, bass, piano sometimes. WHile pop is autotune and electronic music. - AnonymousChick
I agree that rock needs talent. But pop and electronic do as well. - ProPanda
It's pop and rap that doesn't require talent. (There are very few pop stars that do have talent) - 906389
Rock music is the best kind of music. Pop and rap suck. - MettsV1 Comment
Basically, you're comparing artists like Tupac, Drake, Lil Wayne, and 2 Chainz, with bands like Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Overkill, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Ronnie James Dio, and other rock bands like Rush, Genesis, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, The Who, Aerosmith, and The Rolling Stones, which all have good band names.
This one... I can't even. What? BEtter stage names? I'm almost about to laugh - AnonymousChick
Rock bands have stupid names like Led Zeppelin, Metallica, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, and the worst one of all, the Beatles (Why would you name your band after a bug). Musicians like Lil Wayne and Drake have good names. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks
Hell no rock got better stage names. - MettsV1 Comment
Robert Plant, Phil Collins, Jim Morrison, and Freddie Mercury all have good singing voices. Other good singers with excellent singing voices include Rob Halford, Ronnie James Dio, Geddy Lee, and every single Eagles singer.
If you count autotune as singing, you're still wrong. - AnonymousChick
Rock singers like like Robert Plant, Steven Tyler, Phil Collins, Jim Morrison, Axl Rose, Vince Neil, and Freddie Mercury have weird singing voices. At least singers/rappers like Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and Drake actually sound good. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks
Rock/Alternative bands like the Beatles, the Police, and Kings of Leon are my favorite bands of all time and the Beatles are extremely popular. - Metts
I was at camp and bohemian rhapsody played on the radio. It's decades old. Do you hear pop music from 5 years ago on the radio? NOPE. - AnonymousChick
But Metal fans are more loyal to their artists and don't care how popular Pop and Rap are.
It doesn't prove they are better. - Metal_TreasureV2 Comments
Oh look. Now people are trolling the troll. - Powerfulgirl10
Whoever got away with this is AWESOME - Neonco31V2 Comments
No... I prove you wrong. Rock has awesome beats. - Metts
They have better beats than Nicki Bieber.
Better than pop and rap's crappy "beets"
Incorrect. Plain old Incorrect - AnonymousChickV2 Comments
Rock is fun to listen to. Each vocal, each guitar solo, each crashing of the drums tells a story of beauty. - AnonymousChick
Rock music would make me fall asleep on the dance floor, but pop music will just make you want to dance like you have never done before. Rap music does the same, but with swag. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks
I don't enjoy pop and rap and it's boring and repetitive. Rock is way more fun for me. - Metts

Rock is pretty much alive, especially metal. - Metal_Treasure
I can see your point, but rock isn't dead. Rap is awesome though. - jack2244
Rock isn't dead. Look there are new albums of green day and blink 182 released this year. - zxm
But it's greatest, most broad subgenre is still alive, which is heavy metal.V2 Comments
Proof? And did you see what the Disturbed singer did to a fan? Creed's actions in general? Now look at Selena Gomez and Adele who help charities and kids be better people. - ProPandaV1 Comment
