Dance or Rock?

An age old question. Sort if. Trying to prove that metal is by far better than dance, I asked loads of people at my school wether they liked techno, dance, hip hop, drum n bass, r&b etc better than rock, metal etc. To my dispair most people said that "rave" is better, which is just wrong. Apperently DJ Sammy is "really f*ckin good so you better shut up". Ok. Now its your turn. Which one do you like better?


By pop, I didn't mean pop, I meant dance. I suppose in this poll pop falls into the rock category.

...Well. i like some pop, but hip hop(other than beastie boys) is complete s*** . And all that emo music sucks too. Like my icon says 'Only losers Panic! at the Disco'

Rock kicks butt. I'm listning to the bestest rock band ever right now.

A quick look at my last.fm profile reveals my top ten bands to be:

1 King Crimson
2 Jefferson Airplane
3 The Doors
4 Grateful Dead
5 Hawkwind
6 Pink Floyd
7 Black Sabbath
8 Deep Purple
9 The Velvet Underground
10 Iron Butterfly

Which are as you can see, exclusively rock bands (or as Remi proclaims, 'drug bands'.) However there are no clear boundaries in music. Jefferson Airplane were the height of pop forty years ago, as were The Doors. Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath haven't ever really been 'pop' bands in the sense we all assume, but they are wildly popular bands. The only band on my list that is anything resembling obscure would be King Crimson, and even then in the right circles they'd qualify as mainstream.

And to be honest, I've never been to a rave that I didn't enjoy. So I can't vote.

Wait, is that poll "Pop vs. Rock", "Techno vs. Metal" or "Rave vs. Rock"? Also, what do you mean by "Rock" (real Rock or the Pop-stuff the MI calls "Rock")?

...

Anyway, /me is listening to "Dimmu Borgir - Blood Hunger Doctrine"...

The vote would be better if it were a list of 'key' bands and you could choose which ones you liked, and then based on which ones you clicked it could be ascertained whether you had a good taste in music or a bad one. I know that's impossible on these boards, but something like;

The Spice Girls
David Bowie
Metallica
Nirvana
Coldplay
Maroon 5
Boney M

etc. etc. with an option for 'more esoteric than this' in case twilo is around.

Fealiks fails at making polls. Polls should be clear for one, and unbiased for another.
I refuse to vote. I will, however, have input. Some techno music is pretty cool, but so is metal. For another thing, don't classify Metallica as rock anymore. It's metal. Old rock is good, new rock is decent, so long as it's punk. The Offspring rocks, no pun intended.

Calling somebody retarded or wrong for enjoying music that you don't is pretty lame. The world is full of opinions, and music happens to be the subject that everybody can have one on.

That said, I'd go with rock if given the choice, although there's really no limit to the type of music that I can enjoy assuming that it's well written and performed.

You should slap anybody who hasn't heard of Queen. You cant Google search for The Who ("THE" is a common word and will not be included in your search. "WHO" is a common word and will not be included in your search.)

Well, if we're talking about rave and dance music then indeed, I truly hate it with a passion (I have friends... well, a friend who likes it and takes pleasure in playing it whenever I go round her place just to watch my eye twitch).

Oh, and of course I love Rock for all obvious reasons and a few inobvious ones.

As for straight out pop... well... I can listen to it without getting the desire to rip my ribs out of my chest and use them to puncture my ear drums (but then I always carry around a couple of knives for just such and occassion... now am I joking?), in fact some of it can sometimes be downright good. But rock just has that certain way with me (who am I kidding, every so often I'll listen to mellow music just to chill out to but oddly enough, not chillout music becuse that's just way to close to dance)

Google doesn't recognise "Who" as a common word, even just Googling "who" comes up with the World Health Organization.

I make a crap sarcastic joke and three people believe that I was being serious...

Then, inevitabley, at least two of those people will claim that they didn't really believe me and at least one will be telling the truth.

Anyway, Joshi, as you said I don't really mind pop either, I continue to stress that I didn't mean "Pop or Rock", I meant Dance "or Rock". "Pop or Rock" just sounder better.

I falls into neither. It's like asking which genre of movie the Matrix falls into, Western or Humour? The answer is neither (Reloaded on the other hand falls plainly into Humour thanks to Colonel Sanders as the Architect).

It may be an idea to ask which you prefer, dance music or Rock (so in your case rock unless you prefer dance music to it), as apposed to your all time favorite genre which apparenttly isn't up there as Fealiks has decided not to include any other genre of music in his poll and seems to think this is and age old question.

The question I asked was "Do you prefer dance music to rock music" not "what is your faviroute type of music" thats like being asked (as long as we are on movie analogies) "which do you prefer, Matrix or Matrix reloaded?" and replying "niether, I prefer the third one" even though the question was clearly nothing to do with the third film.

Hmm, that's a real toughie. I can totally bust a move and breat it down. Give me a phat beat and I'll show you myself. But rock, rocks! My first and last concert was a rock concert. For crap's sake, I'm wearing a Freddie Murcury shirt as we type!

I'm keeping with the rock train.

Cool, another Queen fan! I guess you bought the off-brand shirt, mine spells it Mercury. And I'm sure David Bowie had to sleep with a few record producers, but I don't hold it against him. I guess I don't really like music that can be summed up with just one genre.

It wouldn't suck as bad if you layed off the Cascada. God, I mean 'everytime we touch' is a good song for the skating rink or a sweet make out session, but it gets annoying.

Pop music is ace. You all love pop music, let's not deny it. Secretly you're overjoyed when O-Town come on the radio, because they're beautiful people with pretty voices who are better than you. And they can dance. But dance music is mostly horrible. O-Town don't do dance music.

My taste in muisc is here although it's not been updated in a while. Everyone should get an Last FM account, and then not listen to Coldplay. Coldplay are bad for you.

Coldplay are obviously to cool for your O-Town-ish taste in music and thus lackadaisical state of mind then.

It's all about Cascada and Rihanna, baby.

And of course Nelly Furtado.
