But yes. Music isn't a competition, it's expression. There aren't right or wrong, better or worse genres of expression. The only thing that matters is how effectively artists use those genres.

Yes u are definitely right.

and rap is a sub genre of rock anyways, as is alternative.


Alternative is a sub genre but not rap.
But even if that is that is the fact, rap is more inspirational than heavy metal.
Seriously what's inspiring in Heavy metal?

Its very weird having Rock Vs Rap cause they are so diff, Rap is a small Genre but Rock is very big u have, Alt Rock, Pop Rock, Punk Rock, Heavy Metal, Classical rock and Etc, so its not really i can chose upon since i like both, but if they were levelled to each other i would chose ROCK.

I say neither. Also, you can't really compare the two.
I for one don't go for rock or rap.

You agree with me that there's no point in judging entire genres of music, then turn around and say this.

What.

For example, Metallicas ballads are very inspirational. And Amon Amarth, which is a sort of heavy metal-ish Folk metal, has many good inspirational songs too (not ballads). However there are some heavy metal bands that aren't inspirational at all.
Not all rap artists or songs are inspirational either (some really suck), it depends. As well as it depends on the heavy metal band or song. So this doesn't really tell you anything.

I also think arguing which type of artistic expression is "best" just as pointless, but saying rap (by which you likely mean hip-hop music) is a subgenre of rock is factually incorrect.


funk and disco are also subgenres of rock. all three hip-hop, funk, disco, they all have no outside influences other than rock. thus they are subgenres of rock.
