Reasons Why Metal Is Better Than Rap & Pop


The Top Ten

I just find it ironic that the "Reasons Rap Is Better Than Metal" list was slammed and everyone got upset about it, yet this list is looked at as just fine and people find it 100% accurate. If you have the right to make this list then why don't other people have the right to make an opposing list? I'm no rap fan but I am a pop fan so it just kind of ticks me off whatnot with the hypocrisy and double standard of the whole matter. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Most likely because the list you were referring to had bad reasoning. The reasoning on this list you are on right now can easily be justified.

True.Metal has a lot of good and meaningful lyrics but so does rap.-TheCoolGuy1

It was a tough decision to choose just one to vote for, but I had to choose this because of two bands in particular, Slipknot (Disasterpiece, Left Behind) and my favorite drum track, Metallica St Anger - Danielsun182

Pop uses drum beat machines, metal uses the MG 42 bass pedal and arm muscles.

Can rappers shred on the guitar like Eddie Van Halen? Can rappers wail like Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden? Can rappers pound the drums like Neil Peart from Rush can? Can rappers slap the bass like Cliff Burton from Metallica can? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that there is no talent in rap. Rappers talk fast to stolen beats.
