Rock can be loads of genres such as ,Metal (Every type), Punk and other types of rock and rap can be Hip-Hop, R&B and whatever

I think rock is by far because I reckon that rappers have no talent at all.

Same, although there hasnt been any hip-hop I have really liked since the 90s so I would lean towards rock. (even though most rock i listen to is from the 80s :?)

Both for me but if I had to choose one, it'd be rock, but not by much.

Uhm... why in God's name would you group R&B with Hip-hop? Last time I checked, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, etc sound nothing like Rap.

Because Punk Rock bands barely have any idea about what the hell they are doing, all rock is confused and stupid. Rap is absolutely superior to rock. Also because Rap rocks while rocks do not rap.

Those are slightly better than the mainstream rock crap, but none of those bands hold a candle to Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc.

To be honest, I prefer punk rock to some Metal bands(Speed, Power metal bands are the worst offenders) etc. who go all "LOOK AT MY GODLY GUITAR SKILLSISMZ!!1" and plays severaly milion notes at once. Music isn't about being good with instruments, it's about aranging different sounds and silence.

I didn't elaborate, punk is also great music. Both in influence and just in its own right. Bands like The Clash are brilliant

Maybe not in terms of influence or impact, but i love pretty much every song written by Incubus and RHCP. I can listen to most of their CDs straight through and not get tired...where those bands you listed, while still good, arent as appealing to me.

They were all important too, but punk changed the music of the time (which had gotten boring and stale with stuff like Genesis), and gave rock a wake up call

Rap never ever has involved the use of instruments! NEVER! But anyways, what difference does it makes? It's just different sounds coming from different sources, just because they would come from instruments wouldn't neccesarily make it better. :P
