  1. Rock:
    In geology, rock is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids.

    Metal:
    A metal is a chemical element that is a good conductor of both electricity and heat and forms cations and ionic bonds with non-metals. In chemistry, a metal (Ancient Greek métallon, μέταλλον) is an element, compound, or alloy characterized by high electrical conductivity. In a metal, atoms readily lose electrons to form positive ions (cations). Those ions are surrounded by delocalized electrons, which are responsible for the conductivity. The solid thus produced is held by electrostatic interactions between the ions and the electron cloud, which are called metallic bonds.

  2. hmm, that’s a hard question. I’d say that there is a small difference, and that is hard rock is more based on the image or style, where metal is more technical, complex, heavier, etc. someone may consider led zeppelin hard rock or heavy metal, because some bands blend both. hard rock also usually is lighter, happier, and more clean vocals than aggressive or harsh vocals. in my opinion I think hair metal is just hard rock with a more extreme image. metal is meant to be heavy, fast, brutal, and aggressive. hard rock is very good time-music.

  3. Hard rock is just like a heavier rock, obviously, but metals like a complete different style music. like metal has more slow to fast stuff, blast beats, breakdowns, etc. and hard rock usually only sings. metal is mostly screaming.
