Rock is a type of music that is very general. People who dont like rock probably only listen to classical (good for them) or rap/R&B (stupid). Many things in the punk, emo, goth, alternative, metal, indie genres are rock. There are bad rock bands and there are bands that scream but this is not at all representative of most rock. Rock is not always about bad things in life but can be upbeat. Rock sometimes contains sexual language but never as often as rap. People who like only rap need to realize it is good for dancing but how talented is someone talking over a beat. And I ask you, is it better to complain about your life when it is really good (emo, I dont like)or is it better to sing about how rich you are (rap, I dont like)? People who rock are definitely not idiots and are smarter than those rappers who never got a full education and who are rich but still shoot at each other. (I hate Mike Jones). They also do drugs. As for the pop-pers they are just dumba$$es. Most rockers are talented but they need a little more to be great.

Rock music usually has several guitarists, a bassist, a drummer, possibly a keybordist and a vocalist (who might play an instrument).

Rock is is being taken over quickly by rap. In my city, Dallas area, there is one "alternative" station that mostly plays crappy nu-metal. There are a bjillion rap stations. People get hooked on the generic beats and simple, sexual lyrics and cannot go back. To save rock by a Muse, Spoon, Interpol album!!! These albums will not get you labeled (ok possible a little depressed) and can help SAVE ROCK!
Muse - They have created amazing sounds with just 3 people (and sometimes a fourth for certain songs). Muse rocks but they do not scream. They are not dumbasses. They are talented. They get their own genre

Nu-metal - Korn (I dislike nu-metal, it is a rap-rock combo)

Metal - DragonForce (metal is OK but there is often a lot of screaming)

Punk-pop - Green Day (punk music has been destroyed)

Punk - The Offspring? The Sex Pistols (punk music is mostly dead but it is not bad)

Emo - Jimmy Eat World or Fall Out Boy (emo used to be alright, but has degenerated into neo-emo, such as Panic! At The Disco)

Pop-rock - OK Go (this genre can be alright but is filled with many pretenders)

Alternative Rock - Spoon (the best genre in my opinion, wont get you labeled {possibly by idiots} either)

Hard Rock - Alter Bridge (not too bad, can be some screaming)

Goth - *dont know any goths* (this kinda creeps me out but not too bad)

Industrial - Marilyn Manson (this genre is a little heavy for me cant say its horrible though)

Brit-pop - The Kaiser Chiefs *might be considered alternative or pop/rock* (I like a lot of Brit-pop but it can get annoying)

Indie - The Yeah Yeah Yeahs (ehh ... not that great and I dont like the vocals of many indie bands)

Experimental - Radiohead (im not in love with them but they are good)

*all bands listed are still creating music or stopped recentely, except maybe for the sex pistols*
