This also applies to most other genres as well.

Just because there is a guitar in a song does not make it rock, metal, or whateverthefuckelse. Also, just because there is a guitar in a soft rock song does not make it metal and vice versa.

Lets take a look at Little Jon's CD. He uses alot of hard rock riffs (Some good riffs), however, there are a lot of people down in the town I am at who say that those songs are rock. Wrong. It isn't rock, it's rap with a distorted guitar.

Get it right.

I know that. Xzibit mixed one of his sonds with Ironman and as far as I'm concerned, it's rap.

I agree, and would like to add that guitar solos suck 80% of the time.

Many bad, horrid popsongs have guitars in it, and calling that na-na-na-na-naa rock is a bloody insault.

That people define genres by what instruments are used instead of the overall jest of the music/sound.

I agree.
Also just because a band is "Heavy", it dosn't make it metal.

Well the original rock songs had:
Couplet
Refrain
Couplet
Refrain
Guitar solo
Couplet
(Refrain)

At least that is what I heard once. But I don't think this makes every song that has this rock.
