Reasons Why Metal is Better Than Rap

The Top Ten

Metal is real music

Hey, I know this comment has nothing to do with this list but I saw the list of reason you might quit the top tens. But hey man, if you need someone to talk to about anything I here. And if I'm not online, send me a message, I'll answer back. You know one thing that hurts me pain, especially if its someone else's. I'm a Christian too. It hurts me when others bash about our beliefs.

In reality, pretty much anything is better than Rap.

Don't know why rappers are allowed to use the n word and get away with it.

I think there's already a list about it

Most rap songs are about drugs, alcohol, and sex

To make things true, a lot of metal songs have violence, but a whole lot better than listening to songs about marijuana.

So true. I quit Eminem once I learned what he was saying. In fact the only rapper I listen to is KJ-52 because he wraps about praising God. Not about lil wayne or Eminem type stuff. - Coopetro

Mostly modern rap does. Listen to older rap. - Userguy44

Exactly it's true

Rap is fake

Rap music is about expressing your thoughts and emotions. How is this fake? - LemonComputer

Pop nowadays is more fake than rap and metal. - waraypiso

Because of the computers? Yeah. - Metalhead1997

Eminem is the only good rapper today

There is no good rappers (by my opinion because I hate rap).

Kendrick lamar, J.Cole, Logic... Must I continue? - MrGuyDudeMan

There is Trippie Redd bro. - Userguy44

A lot of Metal songs have great meanings

The only meaning of rap is drugs.

I think these metal songs have good meaning run to the hills,the troopers,nightmare,child in time,fade to black etc.there are also some great foreign metal songs that nobody know about but those have good meaning. - zxm

People who listen to metal are smarter

According to an article I read, it makes you more intelligent.

My sister listens to pop and she's REALLY smart. She could hold a political position if she wanted to. I'm a metalhead and I'm smart, too. But to say this means that everyone that likes rap is a complete dumbass is pretty mean. - Metalhead1997

Why is it only people who listen to metal are smarter? There are lot of genres (good rap, R&B, funk, funk soul, rock, old pop, classical, jazz, blues, dubstep, electronic soul, etc.) that people are listening to these are smarter, not only in metal. - waraypiso

This was when I was wondering whether or not I should leave the metal community. You guys are really dumb. Most of these "reasons" are not real, logical reasons for why you would favour one music genre over the over. Instead, you guys turn to lies and 'Metal is the best' or 'Rap is the worst'. Your preferred genre of music does not tell you how smart you are, it tells you what your personality's like. People who favour rap are generally sad about life while people who favour metal are generally angry about life as well as sad. Nothing says that one genre makes you smarter than the other. - LemonComputer

Metal is the best music genre

Best: metal, rock, Christian rock, Christian metal, punk rock
Worst: rap, pop, R&B, dance, K-Pop.

As someone who really likes metal, I disagree. Then you can also say Rap is the best music genre. It's an opinion, not a fact. - Userguy44

It's one of the best, the sole best. - Metalhead1997

Metal doesn't talk about sex or smoking weed.

Glam metal? Stoner metal? - Metalhead1997

Rap is a terrible genre

I like rap. I don't choose rap songs that are terrible like modern mainstream music in the modern pop radio. Old school and underrated modern rap are not terrible. - waraypiso

Only in modern mainstream rap. Underrated modern and old school rap are not terrible - waraypiso

I personally hate rap but to say it's an outright terrible genre doesn't justify anything. - Metalhead1997

That's only opinion. Not fact.

Teenagers who listen to metal are more likely to behave in school than people who listen to rap

This is what I meant about the lies. I used to be a huge fan of rap, before I started to like other genres of music as well. I was always (and still am) well behaved at school. Metal didn't change anything about me, to be perfectly honest. I get good grades in certain subjects as well (though overall they're crap no matter how much I try.. I'm just dumb). The only real things bad about me at school really is that I'm so dumb and ''shy''. No music solves the ''shyness'', though metalheads might try to claim that metal heals social anxiety next. - LemonComputer

Hey! I listen to good rap. I am well-behaved in school. This item of the list is just only your opinion. Everyone has tastes in music. - waraypiso

I'm a 12 year old who listens to metal and I behave properly.

I knew a kid who played flute his Junior year of high school named Trent who got arrested. Sad thing is that he was a fellow metalhead. But every musician has had some domestic troubles at least once in their liftime, no matter which genre. - Metalhead1997

The Contenders

Metal can add rap to songs, rap can't add metal

Metal and rap don't mix. What you think is metal mixed with rap, is most often punk mixed with rap. Linkin Park do not have metal in their music at all. Bottom line: neither metal can add rap nor rap can add metal on a regular basis. - Metal_Treasure

That means that rap is clearly superior, as other genres of music use it. - LemonComputer

Rap has bad words

A lot of metal has cussing like Disturbed's "Down with the Sickness" or Slipknot's "People=S***, Five Finger Death Punch cusses a lot, but none say the n word which is racist. I still wonder why rappers use it even though most are black (they're discriminating their own race).

What kind of bad words? - Userguy44

Rap creates gun violence

Really? take for example thrash metal they have songs talk about serial killers as well there is for example song called m16 by sodom who is thrash metal band which is song about gun violence but in less words its about war. thrash metal bands are more into the war, riot violence, political views which is the only metal genre deals with chaos and mosh pits, sense of humor, alcohol except sex. metal and rap are both aggressive genres when it comes anger and brutality. some pop and rock bands used to write some few tracks about this violent subject so both could create gun violence if you are dumb enough to kill. that what creates for rap it doesn't counts at all

Rap is perverted

Like 6IX9INE. - I80
