It is impossible to say one form of music is 'better' than another; a given individual may like one better than the other, but that is strictly a matter of personal taste.
There are many similarities between the two. They both emerged as a reaction to the social, cultural and political milieau of their times. They were also a reaction to the prevalent musical styles dominating the music scenes of their times. Punk as a reaction to tired and boring rock music , Rap to Disco and the domination of Black music by white business.
Both styles also possess a similar exuberance and a desire to shock and scandalise. They both seek to empower youth and to challenge the status quo.

Yes but they talk too quickly, 1, and two, their lyrics seem like they crashed into eachother and scattered all over the place.

Rock is my favorite genre because it has an actual meaning, firstly, secondly, they don't talk too fast, thirdly, they have instrumentals.

That's my debate.

In my opinion, Rap is better. However, there is the mainstream and gangster rap, which I hate. This is mainly Lil Wayne, and some other dudes I don't know of like Gucci Mane or something. The rap I listen to is mainly songs by people who aren't well known and add their own verses and lyrics into well known songs. So yeah, I prefer Youtube Rap over Mainstream Rap and Rock.

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.
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
All mainstream rap is that.

Very few rappers don't do that.

Either way, Rap is a terrible abomination.
Fuck having a signature.

I say rock is better as they actually use real instruments, not like most rappers that is just the same beat always coming from a music box. o.o

Most rock has meaning, most rap doesn't. So rock.

That may be true, but artist today don't do that anymore. Most, anyway.

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

Yes because in the old Metallica, Alice in Chains, Megadeath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Def Leppard, etc. Focused their songs on that.
