I vote for Rock!!
Chiyo
Gah! Get the evil rap away from me! Its so awful!

Rock anyday.
Fresh_Coffee
I'm all the way with Rock! Basically for Rap it's just someone talking really fast although it takes a lot of talent. Most rap videos are about how much a person has 0_o although I have nothing aganist it.
Chiyo
Apart from the rap videos that show how many 'hoes' he has half naked rubbing themselves up against him/them. I do NOT need to see that much booty.

I like both. I listen to rock, when I want to relax. (Especially Grunge happy.gif ). And I listen to some Rap stuff now & then.

I don't like rap, but I do like how syncopated it is. I guess if it was just a rhythm tone without words, I might actually enjoy rap (but that defeats the purpose of rap I guess tongue.gif)
xrninja
both. i'm a fan of rock, but at the same time i like some rap too, like eminem, jay-z, and kanye west. biggrin.gif

Are we talking about heavy metal type rock or classic rock?


RAP SUCKS!

I think he's both! I chose Rap music for the fact that it's something to dance to. Which is my second job, but we might try making up a routine with rock music. It might look like a bunch of crackheads running into one another, but entertaining none the less!

What's your first job, if you don't mind me asking?
edsgirl
I work for National Cash Register or (NCR). Basically I just ship parts all over the world for broken down cash registers. And then I file repotrs about what happened to the broken one. That's all boring crap smile.gif

Thank you smile.gif , for translating I can now answer back. I personally agree with Chiyo most rap videos are the same crap. Rapper talks about how much 'bling,bling' he has and all these girls who are stripping, they are now very good role models. Not that rap is bad , some videos are stupid but some rap can be good like 'Where is the love'. Now your saying that Chiyo is a 'hater'? Just because she's pissed off that the black rappers ( not all rappers are black) rappers are getting all the pretty ladies. Oh ya she really is mad that the rappers are getting ladies. She dosen't feel at all that stripping is bad dry.gif
Xithion
because some people are done i guess i have to clarify. Rock = punk, metal, ect. Rap = rmb, all crap in my opinion. Sorry if your a Rap fan but I just dont like it, although i did kinda like the Linkin Park & Jay Z combo smile.gif

Why on earth would I be gay? Please note I am a female...thank-you.
And thank you to the others who translated for me.
Hater? Right. I don't know where you got that from. You mentioned black rappers not me. Sounds like you just want to have an arguement.

Carnal Malefactor
For those of you who chose rap, I have a question: Why? What do you like about it that you don't like about rock, or guitar music in general? Do you actually identify with its subject matter? I would find that hard to believe, since most of you seem to be white or asian teenagers who live in the suburbs.
Xithion
Sheesh....when I made this topic I didnt think it would be such an arguement. But Im glad to see Rock is winning smile.gif *hands rock the first place medal*

Are you retarded? Please use proper grammer if you have any desire to communicate without missunderstandings. I hear enough of this crap at school from "Wiggers". I come home and I'm like, "Ah, I must get onto the FMA Fourms now!" Just cause its just THAT wonderful. When I look through these fourms, I DO NOT want to be seeing any of that here.

Why would Chiyo be gay? She's female, she doesn't wanna see any booty, doesn't that prove that she's NOT a lesbian? Goodness.

Rock all the way, If you couldn't tell already, I hate rap.
Xithion
Rap videos are indeed very pathetic. I mean I'm a guy so I'm not against seeing some of those girls. Am I perverted? Yes a little. But a Rap video is like a porno, and if I wanted to see that....well I'd watch a porno!

Jaganshi
XD Good point....I agree.

Yes, I'm also a perv. Just look at my sig.

Wonderful to see I'm getting some back up, thanks guys.

Lets face it, the guy who called me gay is called HoboStabba. Need I say more?
edsgirl
Good point Chiyo!

Not all rap music uses the words "bitch" or "hoe", and not all rappers are black. And yes I do identify with the subject matter, because I came from a Ghetto. Indian Reservations are GHETTOS! I can identify with being poor and times where there wasn't anything to eat. Nothing was handed to me on a platter and I've worked for everything that I have.

You just seem to be wanting people to disrespect you. All people are saying is if your going to talk speak english and maybe we will pay you some form of attention.
But please keep posting, I'm loving seeing everyone bash you. Throw insults at us all you want, see if anybody cares.

I'm not a rap fan at all, but as someone who does like music and general aesthetics, I try to understand what there is to these things.

As far as message is concerned, I don't think it matters anymore. For some, I swear it's a shock value thing. They like the music only because it pisses their parents off. There is more shock content in rap than probably any other style (well, if you can understand the strange english dialect they use tongue.gif).

Remember, this happens all the time. Heavy metal used to be the same way, but apparently, it's not as "nasty" as it used to be tongue.gif (or rather it's more acceptable these days).

Then again, I didn't grow up in the inner city during the late '40's with a frustration of how sweet swing was and needing to express inner feelings more with dissonance, but I can still legitimately like Bop music biggrin.gif

Woa there, loosen up on the quotes buddy....way too many tongue.gif

I don't understand or acknowledge this thing called Black English. Whatever it is, it's not the official language of this forum, so if you want to continue any conversation, you should convert your language to the more standard English dialect.

Ok, I'm not a homeboy, but I'll give it a shot since i voted "both"

When choosing what you want to hear, I think it all depends on the context and what mood you're in.

I find rap and hip-hop appropriate when you're in a partying kind of mood, the beats just help you get pumped up for it

Rock is equally satisfying but for different reasons.

Both genres have artists that go for more than shock value and have messages in their music... One could stereotype rock just as badly as rap is being stereotyped here.

Nas anyone? (I don't think he makes those booty filled videos, and most of his music sounds good and have interesting messages too)

We're not gonna respect you until YOU respect us, and so far, you haven't. I don't think there is any way to redeem yourself now. So just shut up, and stop trying to impress everyone.

Heh, since when do they have dictionarys for that? How much of a loser do you have to buy one, and look up every word so you can sound 'cool'. There's nothing wrong with Ebonics (Yeah kid, it isn't 'black english', its EBONICS!), but don't use it if you don't know how. Im done with you. This is pointless. You're small brain will NEVER comprehend the fact that YOU ARE NOT LIKED!

Could we all finally get back on topic, Please?

For those who voted for either Rap or Rock, please state favorite artists from both genres.

For me (since I voted both): Currently Nas and L'arc~en~ciel/Hyde respectively (no one said J-rock doesn't count!) laugh.gif
