  • Not for me. I mostly hate rap, apart from perhaps Puff Daddy and Faith Evans' "I'll be missing you", but it's not all rap.
  • NO IT CERTAINLY HASNT RAP IS CRAP
  • I don't think so. Every genre has different and almost same quantity fans. There are many new rock artists emergin and some artists' new albums have recently arrived like maroon5 or muse.
  • No, I don't think so. The two genres each have their own audience.
  • Nnnnnoooooooo!!!!!!! Rock rocks!
  • Let's hope not. Rap needs to be put where it belongs, in the garbage bin. Rock will always be stronger than rap and hip hot. But stats have proven that the #1 form of music is still Country. Fine with me.
  • Before rap even comes close to replacing rock (which it will never) they need to play their own instruments. The Roots, anyone?
  • No. Rap, for the most part, is just a pathetic little entity. Rock will never die.
  • Only in terms of top ten hits and record sales. They are saliently different genres. Rock is lyrical singing and played in a drum, guitar, possible bass ensemble. Rap is a percussion background with sampling, possibly a record to scratch and the beat is mostly repetitive with an urban poet rhyming away to the theme of the song.
  • I dont think so. I dont think rap artists are musically talented. They sit in their studios and say "Oooh. give me a drum beat Miss Smiff on your computer" and there's there melody. Great talent machines have.
  • All this negativity towards rap, I assume comes from people thinking true rap music is about "bitches and ho's". It really isn't. There are artists out there that really are talented and can make incredible songs...and then there's 50 Cent. You just need to find the right artists. It's hard, because most of them are independent, but they're out there. To answer the question, Rap has replaced rock music in the sense that it's something parent's today don't understand. Just like when Rock was getting its legs, and our grandparents hated it. It's here to stay...let's just hope that people finally start choosing rap that's truly exceptional, and not just a force-fed media tool.
  • Nope. The group of Rock/Metal lovers will never die. Although I do have to say that some of the rock/rap Hybrids have my attention. Such as P.O.D. and Linkin Park.
  • In my neighbor and I suspect in most across America.
  • O yeah it has every were i go its like everybody is listenig to it i think its great music and fun to listen and dance to I LOVE YOU RAP!!!!!
  • not in my house!... rap is already on the wane but it will always have a certain appeal to a certain section of the people ...but rock has a much broader appeal over a greater age range that rap will never have
  • Put a C in front of rock and you get the age of it's fans but put a c in front of rap and you get a description of the music!
  • Not for people who love rock music!
  • Rap has replaced disco...when there was disco there was dance...then disco disappeared...now we have rap and we dance again
  • It never has and I doubt it ever will.
  • Yeah, most of America's youth today, especially in an urban culture, would rather listen to rap over rock or any other genre including me.
  • No! (I hope)
  • no... and it never will!:) RAP SUX! its the worst music genre uy can ever find...no no wait...its not even MUSIC!:@
  • I should hope not... maybe for some people, but not for me.
  • Rock n roll is the result of the unlikely fusion of country western with blues. Rap has evolved over the past few decades. That is a good sign that is here to stay. But rap has not fused with country music. It is a little bit like comparing apples and oranges. Rap has not replaced rock. They are two separate options.
  • I wouldn't say so. There are still a lot of popular rock artists.
  • Not in my collection.
  • I think so. I think it is because rap is more "accessible" than rock. To perform rap, all that is needed is a suitable beat, suitable words, and a catchy name.
  • No unless you mean it is the new focus of hypocrites who hate the music of young people. Rap is just popular.
  • No....
  • Certainly in regards to when it comes to the "rock star" image, they're the ones showing the glamourous lifestyle. It's funny to picture if the same hip-hop white girl today, if she were around 20 years ago instead she'd have the big 80s hair and into the rock of the time... that's simply what was most popular then.
