22 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

"POPular music" - DCfnaf

23 Even Christians Listen to Bands Like Marilyn Manson

I am Christian and Marilyn Manson is one of my favourite bands

Meh, Marilyn Manson's songs are pretty awful. - DCfnaf

Same

24 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/Metal has the dreaded Cannibal Corpse, Pop has the beautiful Beyoncé. What the heck is this entry's point exactly? - DCfnaf

25 Rock Can Actually Teach You Something

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

Sabaton has taught me more about WW2 than school - Zombieguy745

27 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.

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

Imagine Nickelback and Skillet having talent...sorry, but I don't think they're better than Twenty One Pilots and Maroon 5... - DCfnaf

You lost me at Nickelback. - WonkeyDude98

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 The Beatles Formed in 1960, and Kids Today Still Listen to Them

I'm sure no one will forget Rihanna years to come. - ProPanda

31 Most Pop Stars Are Fake

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

Of course! Taylor Swift is totally not a real person because she writes songs about breakups! Marilyn Manson is a cool guy though and he deserves constitutional rights, ignoring all of the creepy as hell stuff he's done. *Sarcasm* - DCfnaf

They are all fake - RustyNail

32 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!

33 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.

Rock has Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, Queen, Led Zeppelin (sorta good), Elton John, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Twenty One Pilots, Evanescence, Pink, Maroon 5, and many more great artists...

Pop has Adele, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Céline Dion, Madonna, Tori Kelly, and many more great artists, some of which are rock as well.

So what's the point of fighting? Both genres have talented artists. - DCfnaf

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

It's not true. - zxm
