Top Ten Reasons Why Rock Music Is the Best


The Top Ten

1 They write their own songs

Not really " a " main reason why rock is the best. Folk singers write most of the time also their lyrics.

Exactly. They put passion into their songs, man.

Most of the time.

2 It never gets old

So true! ROck music will never die! Green Day and Evanescence are my favorite bands

Is it even possible to get sick of Three Days Grace? I've been listening to them almost every day of the last 11 months, and I can't seem to get unattached to them. In fact, I only love them more!

Think about Bohemian Rhapsody.

Rock has the abillity to stay fresh. Pop ( and certainly today's pop ), rap, R&B, Techno etc... are just popular forms ( pop is the short term of popular ) which means that they are popular for a moment and for a certain time. When you hear after ten years a pop song it sounds old and it's boring. It has more to do with nostalgia than being fresh sounding when you hear a ten year old pop song on the radio. Rock on the other hand can sound as fresh as when it came first out.

3 It's original
4 The Music Speaks to the listeners
5 Their songs are meaningful

Definitely meaningful songs Holiday by Green Day points out how terrible politicians are, Never Too Late by Three Days Grace tells the story of a suicidal presence that people can overcome if they try hard enough Highway to Hell by ACDC generally is about how the human race sins and how we're already on a highway to hell and etc. there's probably more I forgot but eh all I could think of. Still though this genre has a lot of meaningful songs so counting down of all them would take a really long time.

Agreed. 'Just like you'by three days grace tells us to stop being pushed around and 'i don't want to be here anymore'by rise against show us everything that is wrong with the world from missing children to war.
