    Wait, what?

    This person just said that every genre of music is rock.

    And people are agreeing?

    What about classical music? What about jazz? What about gregorian chants?

    How the heck are these things rock? It is especially important to note that these genres of music existed before the word "rock" was ever even applied to music.

    Which is why Pop sucks! ZING!

    If anybody doesn't get that horribly thought out joke, you're a sad excuse for a human being.

    While the origin of the term "pop music" may have been to reference anything with a wide appeal it has since developed into its own seperate genre (and sub-genres) that are distinctively different from rock, hip-hop, country, or any other commercially viable form of music. Rock is not pop, pop is not rock. However they do overlap in the cases of pop-rock, powerpop, pop-punk, punk-pop, new wave and probably some other sub-genres.

    Not sure I buy this....

    I can find you many Pop songs, with a lines 2 and 4 rhyming scheme, a I, IV, V pattern and a ABABCAB structure.

    ...then I can find you many Metal songs that fit this to a tee.....only thing different is the approach, (screaming voices, overdriven guitars, powerhouse drums etc)

    I can also find you many Jazz, Country, Classical etc songs alike.

    So really....where is the actual difference?

    The formulas used by all genres, are basically the same.

    There is definitely more to music than rhyme schemes. Tempo, tonality, song structure, etc.

    Ok then....name something in Metal that has never appeared in a Pop song...

    ...or vice versa.

    The clincher is in how easy it is to take ANY song, and switch it to ANY genre.

    This abomination is a perfect example:
