Top Ten Reasons Why Rock Music Is Better Than K-popToo many people on this site talk about K Pop as being a good genre when rock music is truly the better genre. Do you think so?
The Top Ten
Having a genre around longer doesn't make you superior. BIGBANG, Supior Junior, SNSD, 2NE1 have all done amazing things to make a name for themselves. I know I sound like I'm attacking but I'm sick and tired of people hating on one of the most broad genres they know nothing about
I honestly like both genres, both of them are great. Kpop has good singers like BoA while rock has good bands like Green Day.
This makes no sense. K-pop may not be American but they have major icons like any other large genre. Being popular doesn't nessasarily make you any good either.
Kpop is not really good to me anymore, the only kpop artist I like is BoA. Rock is better in my opinion now, Blink 182, especially Tom DeLonge beats all kpop singers, so do bands like Green Day, Nirvana, Sum 41, and Queen.

K-pop music don't have talent to create.
I love rock, but have you heard how hardcore k-pop is. A lot of work goes into the songs not to mention the production value and the artists go through rigorous training just to have a chance to debut.
The artists don't make the songs. Also, rock artists are mostly self-taught. - MChkflaguard_Yt
All countries have rock bands in the mix! K-Rock is a real thing by the way!
K-Pop has its legendary songs as well so this argument can't really be used against it.
Kpop is not legendary otherwise it would be respected by music scholars
I like K-pop but the fact that songs from the Beatles or "paint it black" by the Rolling Stones are still listened to today in many countries says a lot.
Both have pretty good live shows. - RoseWeasley
Far way better than BTS - vettel7
True - Fackthapolice
Yea,Rock/alternative bands have great live shows~
It may not be a solid reason to make a genre better, but it's one of the only reasons that's truthful.
This downy nesasarily make a genre any better but it's the only reason so far that has any truth
ROCK HAS THE BEST GUITAR SOLOS AND THE ONLY SOLOS!
Quite steriotypical. Most reasoning is I suppose. I've heard rock songs about girls and I've heard kpop songs with deep meanings that make you think about life.
Far way better than all BTS songs - vettel7
This is important as what's the use of being a MUSICian when you don't write your own songs?
Both genres are actually good.
This isn't even true for most kpop artists nowadays. G Dragon writes his own stuff. Jonghyun writes. Zico writes. I don't think anyone has actually done any research here. They just assume.
Listen to civil war by Guns N' Roses people
Rise againts prevents bullying and exploitation while supporting refugees and displaced people
NU'EST face is about bullying. NU'EST action is about individuality. Wow. Two songs from one group. K-Pop isn't American pop.
Only BTS is trash - vettel7
No, have you heard the song "Bulletproof" by BTS. It sounds like a meaningless rap song, but really has tons of meaning behind it. The song is about how the boy group, BTS, overcame challenges to become successful.
I've been a long time rock fan and a newbie kpop fan and I've found so many meaningful songs in kpop as well. And being judgmental about one genre of music isn't going to make fans love it any less.
Every kpop artists sound a bit different, but when you take a look at a kpop artist / band individually, all their songs sound the same. - RogerMcBaloney
I can tell the difference between Pink Floyd, AC/DC and Linkin Park. However most K Pop bands sound identical.
Agreed. All K-pop dances are quite similar and are hard to tell apart. - MChkflaguard_Yt
Don't stereotype! American music can be creepy too. Apparently people are forgetting that American and Korean pop are basically the same thing, just in different languages.
More powerful than BTS songs - vettel7
