Top Ten Reasons Why Rock Music Is Better Than K-pop

Too 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

1 Rock Has Iconic Musicians

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

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.

I honestly like both genres, both of them are great. Kpop has good singers like BoA while rock has good bands like Green Day. - AnimeDrawer

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. - AnimeDrawer

2 Rock Takes More 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.

All countries have rock bands in the mix! K-Rock is a real thing by the way!

This is such a statement of bias with no reason or fact.

I am an equal fan of rock and kpop. As suprising combination. I have noticed though that other rock fans will shun me while other kpop fans are more accepting. Kpop fans respects rock music while rock fans tend to hate on other genres. I understand the feeling but it's something to think about

3 Rock Has Legendary Songs

K-Pop has its legendary songs as well so this argument can't really be used against it.

4 Rock Has More Longevity
5 Rock Has Good Guitar Solos

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

6 Rock Has Great Live Shows

I am one of the few that has been to both rock, metal, and K-Pop consents. As much as I love seeing my hipster bands, I've never seen live shows any more amazing than what I've seen with K-Pop.

7 Rock Has More Lyrical Depth V 1 Comment
8 Rock Artists Write Their Own Songs

This is important as what's the use of being a MUSICian when you don't write your own songs?

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.

9 Rock Is A Cultural Institution
10 Rock music is written for good causes

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.

The Contenders

11 Kpop is meaningless

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. - AnimeDrawer

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.
