I have very rarely seen a rap song with lyris not about mindless edge and a pop song to which lyrics I can't commit sepukku.

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

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

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

3 Vocals

I give you three of the greatest metal vocalists of all time

Ozzy Ozbourne
Bruce Dickinson
Rob Halford

4 Drums

Are lord said "Let there be drums." Bon Scott

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

Not the Rev, but Dave Lombardo

The Rev. Enough said!

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.

Of course. Pop singers are so sillyou and stupid that they even write thear own song unless it's written by someone else and all pop singers use auto tune

12 Rap is lifeless

Rap is honestly the worst music genre I have ever heard of. Plus lil pump doesn't even have great music. I used to listen to both metal and rap back in the good old days in 2016. But rap music has just gotten worse than ever since 2017 and 2018. So I started listening to only Metal Music. Which does make me happy every now and then

13 Metal Is Good for Exercising

I play metal during workout.

14 Fast Tempo
15 More Diverse
16 More Creative
17 Pop singers are more selfish
18 Pop and Rap are Just Computerized
19 There is way more talent

Most rap and pop stars are reeling on things like auto tune to sing so they don't have as much talent as most metal and rock singers do.

20 Many metal songs have a hidden meaning behind them

Often a song can convey messages through lyrics and guitar, such as the uprising of the oppressed(balls to the wall), your lack of privacy in the modern world(electric eye), the cruelty of the colonization of the Native Americans(run to the hills) a disgruntled individual that’s sick of the way the world treats him(peace sells), or something just as simple as being scared of monsters at night(enter sandman)
