What counts as REAL rock music?

Seriously, guys, I am getting really confused by all these people telling my I'm not into 'real' rock music.....My favourite bands are, in no patricular order apart from MCR being number one.....
My Chemical Romance
30 Seconds to Mars
Panic at the Disco
Green Day
Black Veil Brides
Evanescence

HONESTLY, people, I am into PUNK and ALTERNATIVE ROCK, with just a little bit of metal with BVB.

Does not liking metal that's pure screaming and no music make me less of a rocker? I mean, I get why some of you like Bring Me The Horizon etc, its your opinion and I'm not saying its wrong......
But....so many people are telling me I'm a hanger-on, a wannebe, that I don't like REAL rock. Well, some people argue that ELVIS PRESLEY is real rock, so I don't know what you're talking about! There are so many genres of rock, just because I'm a musician and I like being able to hear a definite melody in my rock music, doesn't mean I'm a rock-wannebe who's only in it for the reputation! YES I am the only person my age i know whose into rock music, but do you people think I'm PRETENDING just to....I dunno, feel COOL or something?

NOT LIKING METAL DOES NOT EQUAL NOT LIKING ROCK MUSIC. JUST BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE ALL THE SAME MUSIC AS YOU DOES NOT MAKE ME WRONG.

No-one on here has said it to me, thankfully, but it has been said by MCR fans elsewhere, and I hope you see my point.
