Ten Reasons Why Rap Is Better Than MetalKoolGuy2218 My list of reasons why Rap is way better than heavy metal.
The Top Ten
Rap requires zero musical instruments, you don't need a good voice, or anything. All you do is talk over a garage band beat. - ryanrimmel
KoolGuy2218, metal is a lot more than just noise. Listen to a song and tell me it's just bland noise. It's more thought out and talented than any other genre (except classical) - Songsta41
I would say this would've been a decent comparison list, but it was ruined by a troll (and oddly enough, I'm a rap fan myself! )
I love rap, but the reasons on here are inaccurate.
Haha. What a bad reason. You just need to talk fast over a simple beat and that's it. - Userguy44V 22 Comments
If you think that metal is "worship Satan" or whatever then you are an idiot. If you think that rap is about "picking up hoes" or something similar than you are also an idiot. Both genres have songs that have creative lyrics, it's just that the generalizations of either genre get them wrong. - NuMetalManiak
You do know there's a thing called Christian Metal that exists right?
It's not hard for some to lie about being a Christian while actually worshipping the devil. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
A Tribe Called Quest has better lyrics than any metal band - LarrytheFairy
Both genres have it. If you think Metal is about killing and torture and devil worship you are an idiot. If you think Rap is about sex, drugs and being a wannabe gangsta you are also an idiot.-DarkBoi-XV 6 Comments
Try learning a guitar solo and then tell me they are stupid. Rappers don't even know how to hold a guitar let alone play one. - ryanrimmel
I already know how to play guitar solos. All you do is play random notes as fast as you can - KoolGuy2218
So "Top Ten Reasons To Hate Books" wasn't enough, huh? You troll -.- - winner333
Playing guitar solos requires a fairly high level of instrumental skill unlike mouthing off over being a ghetto thug and criminal like a monkey.
No they're not! Try to play a good guitar solo and say this again. - Userguy44V 8 Comments
Those rap artists you just mentioned ARE posers.
Metal musicians actually care about their music. Rappers are just in it for the money and fame. - Songsta41
Why does everyone ever always fall for troll lists? - Puga
Who do you always make comments that make no sense whatsoever? - Puga
I agree that rap is better than metal but some metal genres can be good but rap is still better than the good metal genres.Also number 3 is kinda true considering that most metalheads think that you're a poser just because you like Nu Metal or Metalcore but in rap it doesn't matter whether you like awesome rappers like Tupac and Eminem or whether you like garbage mumble rappers like Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj you are still considered a rap fan.-LitSavageV 3 Comments
By that logic, one direction, Justin Bieber, and lady gaga are the best artists of our generation. Popular doesn't mean better, bud. - ryanrimmel
In metal, they're called riffs. - Metalhead1997
That take half a second to think of - Songsta41
Not fully true, but are in my opinion - kok2V 9 Comments
It's pathetic how people are falling for this obvious troll. He's doing this for attention guys, stop giving it to him. - winner333
The fact that the music is computerized makes it worse, not better. - ryanrimmel
Which is why it's not better! Metal is actual music, while rap is just electronics. - Songsta41
That doesn't make rap better. Metal is real music with real instruments. - Userguy44V 6 Comments
By that logic, one direction, Justin Bieber, and lady gaga are the best artists of our generation. Popular doesn't mean better - ryanrimmel
Even though Rap is more popular, Heavy Metal is still better because more popular doesn't mean better. Heavy Metal is actually at #1 on the list 'Top Ten Best Music Genres' - Metal_Treasure
It is especially much more popular among maximum-security prison populations.
That doesn't mean it's better. - Metalhead1997V 5 Comments
Except for the wannabe gangsters that wear weed shirts, stupid snapbacks, and their pants around their ankles. - ryanrimmel
You categorize rap fans a bad people, yet it's not okay to hate metal fans or bring bad stereotypes on them. What a hypocrite. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Sagging pants was originally done by prisoners that wanted to announce the availability of their rear ends to other prisoners.
Hypocritical. - Metalhead1997
Hell yeah. - LarrytheFairyV 4 Comments
The only modern Metal musicians that are considered famous are those from Avenged Sevenfold, slipknot, and disturbed. Should I mention that they are very talented unlike rappers. I don't even like those 3 bands that much too - ryanrimmel
True metal musicians are in it for the music and not for fame, money and popularity. I guess only a metal fan can easily understand this logic but that's how metal ethos works. - Metal_Treasure
Rappers can be very famous, and some might consider them poets, but they are definitely not "musicians".
Unless you're a metalhead, you wouldn't understand. - Metalhead1997V 5 Comments
You do realize that less than 1% of metal bands are satanic. There are more 'gangsta rap' (advocating crime) than satanic metal - ryanrimmel
Literally less than 10% of metal songs are about worshipping Satan. Name one Iron Maiden, or Judas Priest, or Metallica, or Megadeth, or Saxon song that worships Satan. - CostcoHotDogs
Sure. Rap is about as cool as being a criminal scumbag on his way to a glorious career of dropping the soap in the prison shower and being pimped out for two bags of Doritos and a Snickers bar.
No, it's annoying as hell. - Metalhead1997
Both genres are pretty cool. - LarrytheFairyV 3 Comments
There's still MILLIONS of metalheads around the world. - Metalhead1997
Yeah, because they are not many cool guys left in this world and it has been taken over by idiots
There are millions of people that still like metal, and since when does popularity make something better? - 3DG20
Bullcrap, no one likes itV 2 Comments
Yet you make this list. - SirSkeletorThe3rd
True. - LarrytheFairy
i don't - kok2
Shall I book you an appointment with a psychiatrist
You just don't like metal, do you? - Metalhead1997
Trash Metal - Userguy44
I'm a metalhead and I'm not racist. - Metalhead1997
AAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAA! This guy is hilarious! I mean, true SNL material here! Wait, what? You mean he's serious? No, he can't be. He is? YOU LIEE!
Says the person who just made the list "Top Ten Reasons Why Rap is Better Than Metal" - Songsta41
You too have made/commented on lists that say Metal is better than Rap. I guess just expressing your opinion is "bullying" according to YOUR logic. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Yes because they know rap sucks
Yet they make fun of others. - Metalhead1997
True - LarrytheFairyV 3 Comments
Metal too. - Userguy44
Yeah. They say that metal singers should earn 10X more awards and recognition for their songs, yet when they finally go into the mainstream, they're "sell outs". That shows that metal fans are just as bad as people who follow things just because they're popular. Some people will hate things because they're not popular, and Hipsters (metal fans) will begin to hate something as soon as it's not underground. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Most of the time it is bad
And we're actually right. Nowadays everything is just completely bland. - Metalhead1997
The one thing on the list I agree with. - 3DG20
Metal fans aren't. If someone likes a different genre of metal, they're suddenly the worst person in the world. When someone is legitimately interested in metal and wants to join the fandom, they're called "posers" and "followers". At least rap fans welcome each other with open arms. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Metalheads are VERY accepting, too. The elitists give this a bad name. - Metalhead1997
Although I'm not a metalhead myself, I've encountered a ton of people who are and not one will bash on you for liking a different genre of metal, in fact, most of the metalheads I know are pretty respectful with opinions. I honestly can't say the same for Eminem fans though. (Not all but a lot)
