22 Pop Singers are Talentless

Except for Michael Jackson - yungstirjoey666

They are

1984: Michael Jackson's got moves!
2014: Justin Bieber has a car. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

23 Rock Has Slash, Pop Has Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is stupid and weird. Slash, on the other hand, he's the king of guitar solos and all of the awesome rock. I think Bieber should have stayed in jail.

Rock (along with NWA and 2pac and all other pre 2000 rappers as Rock welcomes them with open arms) has actual real humans being (human is plural and being is singular on purpose by the way)! Pop stars (including the kardashians) are not people don't deserve constitutional rights!

Rock also has Three Days Grace, Evanescence, Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Sixx AM etc.

Rock has Creed, pop has Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. - WonkeyDude98

24 Pop is Too Popular

" Nobody can escape it, it's everywhere you go, in my school, people say that I am listening to unpopular music, they say listen to pop music, its popular.

There's a reason it's called "pop" - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

26 Most Pop is Simple-Minded

Most pop is simple-minded. Drakes new hit "Hotline Bling" doesn't even have a meaning, Drake only added that in the lyrics because it's catchy, which I think is stupid.

27 Rock Can Actually Teach You Something

Well, pop does tell you cheesy morals that you're probably not gonna believe anyway. - PianoQueen

28 Rock bands such as Nickelback, Skillet, Nirvana,... are a lot better than Justin Bieber, One Direction, 5 Seconds Of Summer

Nickelback and Skillet talented? Are you actually trolling right now? - WonkeyDude98

You lost me at Nickelback. - WonkeyDude98

Nirvana, heck yes. Nickelback and Skillet, I don't know about them.

Nirvana is my favorite band of all time. And Nickleback is 100 times better than that idiot justin bieber.

29 You Can Find Good Rock Bands in the Underground Today

And good pop acts in the underground today. - WonkeyDude98

True, there's probably Rock bands I haven't heard of that I might want to listen to. I'd rather do that then hear Sorry by Justin Bieber one more F-ing time! - BoredJeff02

Yeah you can. I didn't know rock until 2013, at age 8. I listen to alternative bands like Arctic Monkeys and Black Keys. And Beck. Iove the past 😍

30 Most Pop Stars Are Fake

Pop stars aren't people therefore they shouldn't have constitutional rights!

31 Lzzy Hale Could Beat Any Female Pop Singer

Lzzy hale of halestorm is the queen of metal, and she could surely beat ariana grande, taylor swift or any whiney pop brat

Or Amy Lee I would rather listen to her than Ariana Grande by far! - BoredJeff02

Janet Gardner and Lita Ford will overpower and out do Demi and Selena!

32 More in Depth

Pop music may have motivational lyrics, there are not as in depth as rock music. I mean some artists like Lukas Graham or Christina Perri. They both make beautiful music and so many more artist. But I can only name like 5 talented pop artists, while I can name more people who make well written lyrics that are alternative or rock. For example my chemical romance, Panic! At the disco, Fall out boy, green day, blink 182, 21 pilots, and classic rock artists like Billie Joel, Elton John, ACDC, Queen, Guns N Roses, and so many more.

You know what pop has? Miley Cyrus, Niki Manag (sorry for spelling), Drake, oh and a lot of these artist use auto tune. It is so sad that children in my own generation find this music influential and amazing.

33 Not as Whiny
34 Rock Doesn't Repeat Its Lyrics

Aside from the hook. - NikBrusk

It's not true. - zxm
