Top 10 Reasons Why Metal and Pop are Equally Good

SomePersonYouHate
I'm sick and tired of this constant bashing between pop and metal. Calling all pop music talentless is ignorant and calling all Metal music satanic is stupid as hell. Here's reasons to why both genres are good.

The Top Ten

1 Both have talented musicians

Ahem, to the guy who made this list, the war between metal and pop ended 2 years ago (at least, on this website). - PhenomentalOne

I'm aware but let's see I'm the one that caused that infamous war correct? - SomePersonYouHate

Talented Pop Stars: Michael Jackson, Adele, Kesha, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, Avril Lavigne, Christina Aguilera and more.
Talented Metal musicians: Ronnie James Dio, James Hetfield, Tom Araya, Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, and more. - SomePersonYouHate

2 Both have good lyrics

Good Metal lyrics: " Never free
Never me
So I dub the unforgiven
You labeled me
I'll label you
So I dub the unforgiven
Never free
Never me
So I dub the unforgiven
You labeled me
I'll label you
So I dub the unforgiven
Never free
Never me
So I dub the unforgiven
So I dub the unforgiven" - The Unforgiven - Metallica
Good pop lyrics: " There's nothing I wouldn't do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes
And see you looking back
Ohh I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, ohh
If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much that I've missed you
Since you've been away
Ooh, it's dangerous
It's so out of line
To try and turn back time
I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you" - Hurt - Christina Aguilera - SomePersonYouHate

Both genres have great instrumentation in my book. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Both genres have been stereotyped wrongly but still manage to be respectful genres

Pop Stereotypes: Always about partying, always about sex, always has songs about butts, talentless and more.
Metal Stereotypes: Satanic, talentless, always has screaming, always aggressive, always heavy, and more. - SomePersonYouHate
