I'm getting kind of sick of seeing (mostly rap) threads get derailed by people posting "Rap sucks, listen to real music" or something similar, so I've decided to make this thread in an attempt to stop the spam.

So, what genre do you think is better? Rap music or rock music?

Treat this as a debate, *not* as a poll. If you're going to call out a genre, explain why with something more detailed than "it sucks, ____ is way better".

That's pretty much it, so go for it. Remember, flaming will not be tolerated.

Poetry is more than just "PURPLE DRANK, I SHOT A NIGGA, GOT HIGH, FUCKED SOME WOMEN, AND HAVE A BIGGER EGO THAT BILL GATES, MUTHAFUCKA."

It's expressing feelings through words, rather than boasting about fictious things the creator did.

Rock all the way, as it can actually tell a story, whereas rap is just one fish story after another.
Fuck having a signature.

Well I think both are equally good. But the fact is the fans make it seem more serious than it actually is. In the past i remembered mostly rap fans would say rock sucked and rap is better now a days i find rock fans are beginning toput down rap. I don't know why people hate either genre but they have their opinions. I just dont see a reason to comment on someones favorite genre telling them it sucks. Fans like that give their genre a bad name.

Rap is the best no doubt
90% of teens would scream if Justin Bieber was on the edge of a building.
If your one of the 10% that would scream "Jump Bitch" post this to your siggy.

To be honest I can listen to both, rap and rock but no matter how much I listen to each of them I have to say that, at least for me, Rock is way better.
Reason why rock prevails over rap is because of the musical part, I just can't seem to like something that contains only words and awfully repetitive music in BG more than musical line with singing.

Rock for sure.
Rock is real musical talent.
Rap is synthesizers and just throwing out curses.

Uhm, rap can do this as well.
Anyways I'd say rap the sound of it is just more compelling.

To me, mainstream rap is all about sex, drugs, money, etc. I don't support that. I like my music to have meaning to it.

I support rock. Some will say it's all screaming guitars and loud drums, but that's a part of the style. Some people like it loud. If you ever listen to the lyrics in most rock songs, you'll see what they're talking about in the song. Sometimes it's anger, a loss of a close friend, or even depressing. All depends on the artist. Take Bullet for my Valentine for example. They lost one of their band members, and every album they've released after that had a song that was dedicated to him.

On the other side, some rap I do like. Rap that has meaning, like Sammy said, it can be a form of poetry. I just don't see that in most rap songs though.

Knockout, Tapout, or Blackout; what's your pleasure?

All rap isnt "I SHOT A NIGGA" etc. Matter of fact barely any current rappers even rap about that shit anymore, so until u have a decent understanding of true rap dont post the ignorant quotes
