    Funny song, though!

    Can someone tell me what the song is about? I don't have any headphones or speakers at the present moment so I can't hear it.

    It is a play off the song "Dance to the Music", but called "Rap Isn't Music". It is a humorous song making fun of rap music. I'm surprised that it was apparently produced by a Catholic group.

    Growing up Catholic, I know that in a proper Catholic lifestyle, there is not time to take from repentance and atonement to give to practice anything else.

    Finally!!!!

    Somebody that agrees with me. I remember i used to love to listen to my local top 40 station up until about 3-4 yrs ago. All they play now is rap and other random junk, and one day when i was searching for music, i went by it and thought that rap isnt music its just somebody in "da hood" talking bout how it is.

    Yeah but some people who try to cover up their racism often bash rap.

    Retro Junk and that guy and others make me think. If you hate rap so much, why are you listening to it and making threads and blogs about it?

    Plus, as dumb as rap may sound/be, the word rap originally means to talk or to discuss. So if rappers sound like they're talking about a random subject, it's because it's rap, duh.

    Yeah, to me it's like dirty (sometimes not though) poetry with beats in the background where you rarely have to move your voice up and down. Though it stands as a culture representation, it's pretty overrated. I can't tell you how many times ringtones of them have gone off which annoy me to death.

    Obviously, none of you have listened to the older rap. You know why rap is bad today? It's because it's repetitive, and the beats are horrible. I mean, who puts 50 Cent on the same level as 2Pac, Grandmaster Flash, or Kurtis Blow? At least back then they cared about their work, even if a lot of 2Pac's music was offensive. Now it's pretty much throwing in a bunch of people with no talent and promoting them to get aired on radio. No wonder rap album sales are so low.

    I couldn't agree more.

    I just never saw the appeal of rap in the first place. I do remember liking "Can't Touch This" because it was catchy. But I'd rather listen to stuff like ELO and Queen, the Eagles, and the Beatles.

    It's funny, because the other day I was flipping channels and I found the Rhyme on XM Satellite. I listened for about a hour, and there wasn't one song I didn't like. Then I turned to Raw, which is the current rap, and the difference is huge and vast. That's not rap, it's about making a buck.

    OK, that was pretty clever!

    Has anyone heard "Rap Is Crap" by Curt Hennig and the West Texas Rednecks? Wrestling fans who followed WCW will likely remember this.

    I've grown to like the old stuff, like Rapper's Delight, It's Tricky, and Mama Said Knock You Out (hell, Bob Dylan played that last one on his radio show). But all this "yo yo look at my bling I'm from the street!" crap is just awful.
