I DARE you to find some rap and pop songs with creative or meaningful lyrics in them.

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

Kinda true,but older rap has much better lyrics than metal and also Black Metal and Death Metal have some of the worst lyrics ever.Alternative Metal and Power Metal have really cool lyrics though.Also Twenty One Pilots and Imagine Dragons have good lyrics but they are pop-rock for the most part.-LitSavage

3 Vocals
4 Drums

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

5 People In Metal Take Years to Learn Their Instruments and Write Their Own Lyrics

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.
