personally rock is far superior because the music has thought into it from all members of the group who will be credited in front of the audience, in pop music the singer and only the singer is ever credited; the musicians behind the music are barely ever credited, the amount under appreciation is phenomenal for these people.

Songs in rock have a meaning, an inspiration, there is a great deal of emotion and feeling to it, a lot of them tell a story, in pop there is very little of this, the lyrics are constantly recycled by every artist and I do not appreciate the sexual nature of a lot of them reaching the minds pre-pubescent children and morphing and nurturing their brain for adult themes at such an early age.

"Rock" is such a wide term in music. Realistically speaking, pop is just a sub-genre of Rock, so if you want to have a discussion about the merits of Pop then we really need to get down to what kind of Pop, and what aspects of Rock, we are talking about.

Can't really compare for me, even if you take two specific genres, like Bubblegum Pop and Heavy Metal, since metal started of as a sub-genre of rock. I have the odd habit of switching between genres, too much Suicide Silence can cause me to listen to Taio Cruz, and vice versa. I can't have too much of one thing, so I consider myself both a metalhead, since metal is my favourite subgenre of rock, and a lover of pop.

The aspects of rock we are talking about is what bands like nickleback, the police, journey and the polling stones. So the rock we are talking about is not hard rock or punk rock but more esay in the middle rock.

The aspects of pop we are talking about is what singers like Flo Rida, LMFAO, Rihanna and Lady gaga. So the pop we are talking is usually very electric and borrows elements from other styles like urban, dance, rock latin and country.ADELE would also fit into this category.

A tip if you would like to see more examples just go to Itunes and check what artists are in the rock category and what artists are in the pop category.
