An overused, overrated, society-destroying genre of music. Promotes murder, drugs, degrading women, and most of all, gang violence. Many rappers also enjoy spreading the word on how much their life blows. This includes Eminem. Jay-Z, Tupac etc. Are from an OLDER generation from music. The 80s. Stop looking at about 4-6 different rappers and telling me the whole genre is good. It's not. about 75% of the genre follows the rap stereotype (see above), therefor, the majority rules. Whereas rock, (classic rock, not modern punk emo garbage), everything (just about) sounds good. And it is VARIED. Each classic rock band has it's own sound. Then there is rap, where it's the same trash with a different voice EVERY time.
1st guy: Rock requires talent. You need to have band cooperation, as well as talent to write great lyrics, sing, and play actual instruments.
2nd guy: ya, but they need eachother to play together, otherwise they cant play, but lyricists and rappers dont need anybody, the talent is in thier lyrics and mind, unlike rockers who dont need a brain to scream, slam on drums, and smash guitars after a concert! at least rap has a beat and rythm!
1st guy:" unlike rockers who dont need a brain to scream, slam on drums, and smash guitars after a concert! at least rap has a beat and rythm!" LOL you're joking right? Not only are you stereotyping, but you're stereotyping with a specific genre of rock that makes up about 10% of the rock genre. Classic rock bands do not scream. Smashing your instruments was a form of partying, just like having unprotected sex is with rap. Oh, and you're supposed to slam on drums... thats kind of you play them, moron. That, and rock has rythm, beat, and FAR more talent. Anyone can write a few words and unenthusiastically speak them in to a microphone.
2nd Guy: ...stfu *runs home and writes songs about killing 1st guy
