Neither rock nor rap are good so therefore one can't be better than the other

I mean, rock actually makes music and while i do agree rap has some musical sounds in it, rock is made up of the music, not merely using it as background noise

Nah, rap is better. It just has a distinct flow that makes it sound amazing.

There is good and bad in all genres of music. Everyone, if they put in the effort, could in theory become fans of different artists in any genre. People just have specific genres (and sub-genres) that they develop connections to based on their own formative experiences.

Nah, you need more obnoxious prescriptivism, although your last sentence is getting there :P

But we can all agree that classical easily tops rock and rap, right?

Rock is not better than rap. They are equal.

Equally bad.

Shouldn't this be a Posting Game?

Otherwise, rap is horrible, most rock is pretty good, but Country's a little better...

Pop is better than rap, but not by a extreme amount... Electronic is between those two, and it depends on which classical...
