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.
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
Forever be my favorite list. - ProPandaV 15 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
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
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
Rap and pop fans are also immature, your point is? - LucretiaV 6 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
One of the main pionts of punk rock is not having guitar solos(they still have guitar breaks, but no solos) - RecklessGreed
Guitar solos are one of the hardest things in music. Playing 25-30 chords isn't an easy thing. I don't know if this item is troll or not. but there is a huge variation of guitar solos. guitar solos can be slow and fast both. like november rain's guitar solo is slow and beautiful while avenged sevenfold's afterlife guitar solo is fast and aggressive. - zxmV 5 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
Rapping is awful in rock music. - LucretiaV 6 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.
How does the name of the artist affect the music anyways? - Lucretia
This one... I can't even. What? BEtter stage names? I'm almost about to laugh - AnonymousChick
BTDR actually has a good point here - ProPandaV 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
It's pop and rap that doesn't require talent. (There are very few pop stars that do have talent) - 906389
Perhaps you have not heard Hammer Smashed Face by Cannibal Corpse... - LucretiaV 1 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
Singing voices don't count as autotune and electronic crap. - Lucretia
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.
Popularity is not quality. - LucretiaV 3 Comments
Rock is fun to listen to. Each vocal, each guitar solo, each crashing of the drums tells a story of beauty. - AnonymousChick
My anaconda don't my anaconda don't... - VFD
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
Blood on the Dance Floor, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Insane Clown Posse, and 2 Chainz all want to make me puke on my laptop. At least rock has better bands like AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, and Motorhead.
They have better beats than Nicki Bieber.
Better than pop and rap's crappy "beets"
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.
Incorrect. Plain old Incorrect - AnonymousChickV 2 Comments
They don't need it they have Metallica, The Beatles, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Anthrax, Pink Floyd, Slayer, Bathory, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Mayhem, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Dio, Rush, Dream Theater, Heaven and Hell, Blind Guardian, Gorgoroth, Deicide, Death, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, The Who, Rainbow, Exumer, and I could name a billion things they have that rap and pop doesn't. - LucretiaV 1 Comment
Oh look. Now people are trolling the troll. - Powerfulgirl10
Whoever got away with this is AWESOME - Neonco31
One thing on this list I agree with - Lucretia
Rock fans can get annoying sometimes. - AlphaQV 1 Comment
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 can see your point, but rock isn't dead. Rap is awesome though. - jack2244
But it's greatest, most broad subgenre is still alive, which is heavy metal.V 3 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. - ProPandaV 1 Comment
