I don't like rap and really HATE it when they destroy other people's songs with their shit just because they aint good enough to write their own :angry:

Gimme good old fashioned Rock n Roll any day B) I also like country, reggae, soul, lotsa kindsa rock. I like most older songs I hear (60s, 70, 80s) modern stuff (with a few exceptions) generally sucks

Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock 'n' roll
- From my favorite rocker, Bob Seger B)

METAL!!!!!!!


........for the majority of the time but I like other kinds of music depending on the mood. I like rap if I'm at a party and want a chick to grind on me ;). Reggae (I know it's not rock or rap; its just an example) when I'm stoned. But i still like

METAL!!!!!!!!!

the best by far.

Rap gets my vote because I like to listen to it when I want to chill.
I like to chill often, ipso facto, rap.

In general, rap seems to have become so generic and commercialized nowadays that most of it is not even really worth listening to. I like music that's rich in actual...well... music, not just a bunch of crap lyrics that don't mean anything. At least with rock there are often a lot of symphonic elements which just add to the richness of the music and give it an overall nicer feel. That's not to say that I don't like rap at all, I just think it has its place. I think rap should be part of other music, and not actually considered music by itself.

Lol, jaakuuta, digging up all the old threads :D

I listen to both depending on my mood.

There is a lot more to rap than most give it credit for. And anyone who goes around saying its not music can suck one. I hate classical music, doesn't mean I don't call it music.

Most mainstream rap is pretty crappy though, so I can see why people get the impression :P

While we're digging up dead bodies, I enjoy mostly rock. Nothing metal, I hate getting into a song only to hear the lead singer go into a screamfest. As far as Rap goes, I divide it into 3 categories:

1) Good, intelligent, clever rap
2) Club rap
3) Terrible rap that is only a beat with some guy talking about murdering, drugs, raping, anger, his shoes, my shoes, etc. Most rap on the radio falls under this category.

I can appreciate 1 and 2.

No kidding, that's one of the biggest reasons I've stopped listening to the radio... it's flooded with crap rap that's nothing but what you mentioned in #3...
That would be interesting if there was more indie music on the radio, like postrock and the like.

Rap is so much more than today's top 40 music. That's like saying you don't like Rock because of bands like "Presidents of the United States of America" so bands like that can determine if you like rock?

In case you didn't know Breaking Benjamin > any rock band ever.

The same could be shown for rap, you have lyricists that are extremely talented, DJ's that can create music that is unbelieveable, and yes, alot of crap as well. Don't for a minute act like Rock doesn't have crap strewn all over the genre the same way. Even specific Rock bands can fall on both sides of the fence Look at Metallica - Ride the lightning, Vs Metallica - St. Anger. St. Anger is complete crap, while Ride the lightning is one of the best metal albums ever put out.

Nas is a crazy lethal rap artist with lyrics that slam. While The FatBoys could have shoved a meatball in their mouth and no one would have cared..come to think of it.. they did on their videos. Yes gangster rap is violent, look at where it originated. They are just writing about what they know. You can't tell me that Rock bands don't include bad influence in their albums. Hmm "There ain't no finer place to be than running Lake Shore Drive". LSD anyone?

You all have your opinions, and your entitled to them. Mine is that there are good and bad bands on both sides, and to say differently is like saying "Jewish people are all penny pinchers". You really don't want to go down that road. It leads to the holocaust.

Aet

Hi!
(read intro, or skip and just post your opinion)
It's pretty obvious that programmers are usually above average intellegence (I'm not saying anyone's better than anyone else). I'm a sophmore in highschool now, and I've noticed that Rap/Hip-hop has almost taken over my school, most people here havn't even heard of Led Zepplin, Greatful Dead, Guns N' Roses, or even The Beatles!

I want to know what we (as a whole) think, so post your results, and try to prove the other person wrong.

(no flaming/spamming/trolling PLEASE!)

Results:

Rock:

Rap:





know actually i agree! dont get me wrong though i love rap and hip -hop but some led zepplin or pink floid the originals is the way to go! :^:
