    Renaming something does not change its substance.

    Some rap is terrible, just like some rock is terrible. Whether or not the rap you have heard fits your musical taste, that's no reason to bash an entire genre. Calling people who are clearly fairly intelligent "retards" is highly offensive. And you stated exactly what rap is: poetry. In motion, in flow, in rhythyhm, in beat, in action.

    What do you have against that?

    im not saying all rap is bad but all the rap i ahave ever heard in my life talks about drugs, murder, bitches, hookers, beer, sec, etc. thats not poetry i am aware that some rock talks about that stuff but thats only SOME not MOST because tock requires musical knowledge thats what i have to say against that

    rock is like a cold beer on a hot day, rap is like a 12 year scotch that is good now and then, classical is a fine wine that is divine any time, mood music is champagne that is only good in the company of a lover. i enjoy all alcohols and therefore all music.

    I think you have to think about every single band and decide if you like it or not...
    Like rock. there are so many subtypes and they are all slightly different.
    And i kind of like some rap because the lyrics and so on are great but I hate this gangta rap which is pretty much all about insulting people.

    but why this discussion?!

    They're both good. It depends on my mood which one I choose to listen to. I used to listen to rap before track meets and rock before going to school in the morning. Some Rock artists I don't like and the same with Rap artists. But I agree, can't really compare the 2.

    Personally i enjoy Rock more then rap, but that dosen't mean rap is vindicated i still listen to it from time to time. And i respect most artists from both genres because it takes guts and skill to be able to stand up and do what they do!

    "I'm not saying all rap is bad," vs. "garbage oops I mean rap".... contradictory?

    And all you have to do is listen to any legitimate rap group to not hear about that.... try Fresh Espresso, Macklemore, etc. Please don't underestimate a fantastic genre.

    Definitely rock. There are a few rap songs I like that are catchy and all but for the most part, I hate their rhymes and how they'll say ridiculous, unrelated things just because they rhyme. But if they can make it sound good AND actually be coherent, then cool beans. My favorite of both genres: Linkin Park and Hollywood Undead :)

    But rock definitely kicks all sorts of rap ass. I'm currently going through a Breaking Benjamin phase so...

    Figured I'd put my two cents in, I like both, both have good and bad. For all you hardcore rock fans, there are shitty rock songs, and all you diehard rap fans, (not sure that there are any) there are shitty rap songs. And all you people that say rap is not music, you are extremely ignorant. Music-an artistic form of auditory communication incorporating instrumental or vocal tones in a structured and continuous manner. Last time I checked, rap meets all these requirements. Just because its new and different doesn't mean it should be shunned.

    Well, let's see:

    AC/DC, Aerosmith, And So I Watch You From Afar, Blink-182, Bloc Party, Camel, Chickenfoot, Coldplay, Deep Purple, Dire Straits, Daughtry, Evanescence, Fall Out Boy, Frost*, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Green Day, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Eat World, Joe Satriani, John Mayer, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Linkin Park, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marillion, Maroon 5, Mayday Parade, Metric, Motorhead, Muse, Neal Morse, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, OneRepublic, OSI, Pain of Salvation, Paramore, Phish, Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Queen, Radiohead, Rainbow, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Roger Waters, Rush, Steve Hackett, Sting & The Police, The Beatles, The Flower Kings, The Who, Three Days Grace, Transatlantic, Within Temptation, Yes, You Me at Six, Zero 7 [and so many others] vs. rap?

    Yeah, I believe I'm going to stick with rock; thank you very much.

    Why must you only listen to one? Some days I want to rock out, some days I want to roll down the street smoking indow sipping on Jin in juice.

    I don't smoke, but I do get your point. I listen to rap from time to time, but I'm a much bigger fan of rock. It's a personal preference :)

    [Also, the list of bands above has changed a lot. Many additions and eliminations have occurred, but I'm not going to list them all again. :p ]

    as a musician myself, i would have to say rock, because i know that rock musicians need to have natural talent, as well as spend hours of practicein order to make your music sund good. Rapping, on the other hand takes next to no musical skill, and almost anyone can rap with hardly any practice.

    rap is a lyric intensive median. You don't feel that lyrics are art? Let alone the music that goes along with it is not a music? Interesting coming from a "musician" such as your self.

    if you have never had a bottle of good burbon around a camp fire, then you will come to love some country music. willy nelson, waylin gennings, johnny cash all sing songs i bet you have heard before and might have enjoyed. i just reread your post. you listed Cash. as you can tell i am a big fan. let me ask you one question. do you know any good reasons to shoot a man in Reno?

    i dont get how high the water but i do agree on new country. i think though with anything new the cream has yet to rise to the top. there are no new country songs out there that i like, but give it time and well see what happens
