What type of music do you prefer ?

Hello my friends, I don't want to pick a fight here, just to make a little discusion. So what type of music do you prefer and why. Please discuss about these genres: metal/rock, pop/hip-hop, rap. Ok, so I will start.
Personally I prefer metal/rock, because, in my opinion, it takes more skill than in other 2 genres of music. Why metal/rock is better? (again my opinion). Criteria:
1. metal/rock bands actually plays their instruments, almost nothing made electronical.
2. Lyrics of metal/rock music 98 % has very good meaning. Most bands are singing about life and people.
3. metal/rock music actually takes a heart, ( mostly specific songs ) it may sound odd but people who are listening to metal/rock will probably understand me.
4. in metal/rock only what truly matters is your talent not money, looks or your rich uncle.
5. guitar solos - Well... thats just epic, as example I can give you Avenged Sevenfold - Afterlife solo, played by Synyster Gates.
6. metal/rock is not popularising drugs and smoking unlike Rap ( no offence guys but thats true )
7. metal/rock is not discriminating people, unlike some of the rap ( yes, I know, again Im touching rap but its true... ) Girls very often are getting named whores,bitches, sluts and so on.
I could find more reasons but Im tired of writing Smile . Like I mentioned before, this is discussion, I will respect any opinions you write here. So feel free to discuss. Smile

I voted metal/rock. I do like also hip hop and pop music but when I start to hear old time rock n roll or metal such as metallica or ACDC, this is just what I prefer. Rap is good for telling a message but not for the acoustics. Some rappers like 50 cents just swear on a beat and I just find it stupid. The only rappers I enjoyed were french and were giving a message of peace in their lyrics.

Definitely the main genre Metal / Rock ExclaimTwisted

The "why" I really can't explain: I just like it, grew up with it, listen to all kind of metal-stuff for about 25 years now. I think it's just true handmade music with a lot of feelings and most of the time good lyrics. It's a fact - the most awsome ballads are made by Metal- / Rockbands Exclaim

No offence, but when I see some Rappers in a movieclip, well, I often think of monkeys - can't help... Blum 3

I think it's generally wrong to say "Metal is better". There are so many different kind of musictypes out there - everyone shall listen what he likes. And as long as I don't need to listen to Rap all is fine. ExclaimDirol

I remember like it was yesterday - these 3 songs brought me into Metal:

Twisted Sister / "Come out and play" --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSG47_-Ne9o
Iron Maiden / "The number of the beast" --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlSidenJ5-E&feature=related
Helloween / "Ride the sky" --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ug_JdOQDxwY

Metal/Rock. Just sounds neat, hand-made without those fancy synthesizers.

I grew up on Country music so I kind of have a built-in hatred for it. I still have to listen and sing Country songs when I'm here at home though x.x

Manowar / "Warriors of the world" --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJ0sW7KOFhU

Hammerfall / "Legacy of kings" --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uY7f8zNqAg

The voting options are far too generalized in my opinion.

There can be so many types of rock/metal that I would not group them together. Just consider hard rock vs. death metal, certainly not the same. One I like and the other I hate. I also disagree with point #7, you just can't definitively say a particular genre is promoting solely one thing or the other. There is alternative hip hop that will not have the suggestive themes you use as examples. On the other hand, I would recommend you to google "black metal", saying flatout rock/metal does not discriminate while completely shutting the door on hip hop/rap is very close minded.

You also can't group pop/hip hop together then put rap in a separate category. If anything, hip hop/rap should go together as those terms are essentially interchangeable these days. Placing a pop artist like Justin Bieber (it doesn't get any worse than her) with a legendary rapper such as Tupac would be a major disgrace to the latter.

As for myself, I can listen to any genres except for most classical and some country, but for the vote I chose pop/hip hop (additional voting options such as Electronic or Alternative would be been nice).

Like I mentioned before, ( if I'm correct than I wrote ''in my opinion'' twice ) you have all rights to disagree with me, because Like I wrote at the beginning, this is discusion, so any opinions and options will be respected.
