Reasons Pop and Rap are Better Than RockBarneyTheDinosaurRocks Here are the reasons why rap and pop music is better than stupid old rock music.
The Top Ten
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
Lyrics in poetry books are the real creativity and those were born before Rap or Pop. Just because you sing your " poetry " at some beat doesn't make you Original. Rock from the fifties till now have told in their lyrics every topic possible. Just because your so-called " creative lyrics " sounds like poetrybooks doesn't mean that the music is better.
Rock has better lyrics because Rock is actually creative.
Look up the lyrics to Gucci Gang
I Rest my case
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
True with Rock Fans who say "You have been brainwashed by the media" "You force it down our throats" "Phase" "Ruined the music industry" "Not real music" bash singers, groups for any mistakes they made (If the singer or group was angry at a fan)
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
No - Userguy44V 13 Comments
You think this is a bad thing? Thank God most of the rock songs don't have rapping. - Metal_Treasure
Happily you don't rap in rock haha, it would make rock as bad as rap
Um have you heard of nu metal bands like Linkin Park and Rage Against the Machine? They rap quite a bit...
Well their rapping is terrible. The "rapping" in Rage Against the Machine's songs is just annoying yelling. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks
Rock songs don't need rapping because it will become trash - BigFatNoob22V 14 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.
No offense, but many songs have solos that last for more than 1 minute. - zxm
People actually say that guitar solos suck! Why? - Userguy44
One of the main pionts of punk rock is not having guitar solos(they still have guitar breaks, but no solos) - RecklessGreedV 5 Comments
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.
Tupac is legendary but the rest (rappers) I agree with. Those are cool names and a lot better than the rappers mentioned (except for Tupac)
Being completely honest, I'd rather listen to an artist called 2 Chainz than the Beatles, without having any previously known knowledge about either. - ProPanda
Oh please, Lil this, Big that... come on! - Metal_Treasure
Lol, why would Lil Pump want to basically be called a little pump for the rest of his life? - ShadowheartV 3 Comments
Oh look. Now people are trolling the troll. - Powerfulgirl10
Whoever got away with this is AWESOME - Neonco31
Lol people trolling the troll - BorisRule
Rock fans can get annoying sometimes. - AlphaQV 1 Comment
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
This is dumb. Rock music does require talent. Before I start I'm not hating because I like rock, rap, pop and soul music(anything but country haha). It's easier becoming a rapper than being a famous rock artist. In rock music you need instruments. Brendon Urie can play like 10 different instruments where as rapper really don't need to play one. Lets not forget about Mariah Carey singing on New Year's Eve and lip singing. In pop you lip sing. All genres require talent especially rock! - booklover24
Can you please explain to me why autotune and talking about sex and drugs with rhyming words takes talent? And how playing proper instruments doesn't? Sorry, I just had to check. - ShadowheartV 6 Comments
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
Mainstream pop singers can't sing. They use autotune and such stuff. - Userguy44
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
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
It doesn't prove they are better. - Metal_Treasure
But Metal fans are more loyal to their artists and don't care how popular Pop and Rap are.

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
My anaconda don't my anaconda don't... - VFD
You noobs,electronic music is better than these 3 genres.Ok seriously,I like rock and rap in fact I don't know which is better and I consider pop as mediocre but electronic is the best.Truth hurts(Actually it's my opinion but whatever)-TheCoolGuy1V 1 Comment
Incorrect. Plain old Incorrect - AnonymousChick
I agree with the comment of TTT AnonymousChick and the one that responded to her comment is wrong. An opinion is never incorrect? An opinion is " incorrect " when the statement is false or doesn't make sense. Rock has very diverse beats that require real drum skills. Pop and Rap are usually 4/4 beats with no diversity.
Better than pop and rap's crappy "beets"
What the hell. - Userguy44V 4 Comments
This is very true. - ProPanda
Rock is pretty much alive, especially metal. - Metal_Treasure
Guys, don't you know I was joking, rock is nowhere near dead. Rap is dead and pop is also. - jack2244
I wouldn't say that, but I see where you're coming from - ProPanda
It isn't dead. People just need to listen to it again! - Userguy44V 5 Comments
But, pop has nothing to do with popcorn
Yes! It's a disgrace to the naturally formed small chunks of earth's crust! You can touch rocks, but can you touch rock music? Ha! - styLIShT
LOL, by this logic pop music has nothing to do with real pop corn. I love real pop corn. - Metal_Treasure
Doesn't make sense. - Userguy44V 5 Comments
Why does everyone like these rap beats? I don't understand it. - Userguy44
Its mostly smoothand cool
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. - ProPanda
Did you see Five Finger Death Punch stop a whole concert to help someone who got hurt in the mosh pit? The guitarist dropped his guitar, which I think broke, to help calm the person until they get there. I know some bands in which one of the members got hurt but still made it to the concert! Justin Bieber decided to show up 2 HOURS late because of a broken toe. I mean really. Oh and David apologized to that fan that was called out for texting during the whole show! - lonewolfe12345
Uh...That means pop and rap musicians are better marketers and businessmen/women than rock music producers. Boom, shot yourself in the face - styLIShT
