Anyone else think it's hilarious when people use the "rap/hip-hop is all about drugs and sex" argument?

Specifically when they're trying to explain why rock is supposedly better. Yes, there are rap/hip-hop songs that are about drugs, sex, violence, etc. But these are also common themes in rock--where do you think the phrase "sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll" came from? It kinda amazes me how ignorant some people can be...

Update:

Tristan- Oh really? I'm very interested to see on what instance I said "metal is just screaming and it's about killing".

Update 2:

    I heard that one till now. An MRI in basic terms shows the innovations wave interest of the innovations section it would not somewhat show how the innovations thinks or does issues. even with the actuality that concept does come from the innovations and nueral impluses the technology of that's limited. The innovations come from the innovations and that's right, yet no you could nonetheless observe those innovations being created and manifested interior the innovations. An MRI can't show that. it could generally in basic terms show the section energetic in a innovations whilst doing an interest or questioning approximately some thing. i think of the colour shows crimson or Blue.

    If people would search outside of what's on the radio/TV, they would be proven wrong. But no one does, they just assume its all like that.

    Its like saying all black people only listen to rap/hip-hop and R&B. I'm a living statement that it isn't true.

    But you are the same person who thinks metal is just screaming and it's about killing...

    and I don't say pop is all about sex and drugs I say the new rap is (rap as in the radio rap not underground)

    I don't think it's hilarious, I think it's asinine because people only look at music at the surface.

    no. what else do most people rap about (excluding eminem... mostly)

    most musicians do have an... interesting private life, but in all genres. the difference is that most rock musicians find something else to sing about

    My Chemical Romance for instance sings about love, life, death etc

    However if you check out the lyrics for rappers like Snoop Dog you will find the words "pimp" and "weed" within the first verse.

    Perhaps. But Rap is not music. By pure definition it is just rhythm.
