Personally I don't see a difference in terms of the wannabe ratio.
The only difference is rock is mostly a "we play for fun" genre of music where as rap is mostly about attitude..... and bling and shaking all those hot hot chick's ass and having a pimped car that does more push-up per second than me. That kinda overshadow the music. The good/bad ratio is the same but you just tend to notice the rap baddies more.
