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.
Both metal and rap take talent to make. In rap you have to try to rhyme the words and try to THINK. In rock and metal you play instruments and need a strong voice. - venomouskillingmachineV 16 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
Bull. Most rap songs are about drugs, sex, and money, while Metal is about anything. - NikBrusk
Hypocritical. - Metalhead1997V 7 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
And rap has devoted fans? Yeah, right. - Metalhead1997V 2 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
*laughs* I bet you don't even know how to hold a guitar, let alone play one. - NikBrusk
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.
It's hard. - Metalhead1997V 8 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
That take half a second to think of - Songsta41
Yo dawg, listen to dem sick beets!
In metal, they're called riffs. - Metalhead1997V 6 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
A computer is an instrument of work, not music. - Metalhead1997V 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 and it's 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 6 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.
Look who's talking. I think rap fans are even worse. - NikBrusk
Hypocritical. - Metalhead1997V 6 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
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.
And now another troll list has made it on to the Hottest New Lists page... - Minecraftcrazy530
No, it's annoying as hell. - Metalhead1997V 3 Comments
Yet you make this list. - SirSkeletorThe3rd
True. - LarrytheFairy
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
Look at my family, they think my favorite music genre is crap and they love too much rap. - PrincessKiana
The hypocrisy in that statement is too much for human words to comprehend. - NikBrusk
Yet they make fun of others. - Metalhead1997V 5 Comments
Yeah, because they are not many cool guys left in this world and it has been taken over by idiots
There's still MILLIONS of metalheads around the world. - Metalhead1997
Bullcrap, no one likes it
You hate books, this list is a proof.
You should go to a therapist or you will end up in a mental Hospital, I assure you it will definitely help. - Ananya
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!
Shall I book you an appointment with a psychiatrist
You just don't like metal, do you? - Metalhead1997
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
And we're actually right. Nowadays everything is just completely bland. - Metalhead1997
Most of the time it is bad
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
