They might want to shut down the Head Bangers but they wouldn't utter a negative word about the cRappers.

I think you and I know that there's this prolific, malignant attitude throughout the "united" states, bred in society by academics, media and government that blames 'the thing' for the wrong choices of PEOPLE.

It's kind of stupid if you look at it. It's like a bad jar of mayo. Mayo isn't bad. How was it processed? How was it handled once it was opened? How was it used? Once again, people.

Music, it's nothing new that people like to blame a particular kind of music or entertainment for problems. If that were the case, then by some scientific analysis, ALL who used these things are wrong, or contaminated. Nonsense.

Music and entertainment are mirrors of the soul of the creators, and monikers for those who espouse or relate to the same in some way.

Having heard all kinds, and being an eclectic listener, I'd say it's more about the lyrics and the rhythyms that stir people.

I have noticed that people listen to such things to find some sort of link to something so that they don't feel they are alone in their thoughts. Personally being older, if I have to listen to any of that stuff, it is to me like a t.v. dinner when I'm used to good cooking. I choke it down and try to make some sense of it since it seems to mean something to somebody near me. Maybe it's time some of us asked in a non accusing way, what this music means to them. Then you might actually find out something.

Talk about excellently musically complicated pieces, that have VERY heavy themes; ever listen to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"? It's heavy and pathetic. If someone you know likes it, you might want to find out why. Rap and much heavy metal, same dif.

I avoid modern music like the plague. I joke that I once shared a labor room with a woman who sounded like that.

We finally agree on something. Especially that "bang bang bang" bullshirt that they like to boom with their cars. They think the whole neighborhood wants to hear it, but it sounds like hell

Sad for you. You miss SOME good stuff. I'm truly 'fogie' when I can use my discernment to enjoy anything.

I will be listening to country tomorrow because I will be with my daughters and they will want the radio on. We will not listen to it at the volume of their choice however.
I doubt I'm missing much. It's almost impossible to avoid. I'm so thankful for mute buttons.

I note that can be a big problem. Also,if you grew up in an atmosphere where they wanted to "hear every note", you could be a different plane than someone who's hearing is better than yours. It's hard to enjoy music with someone when the volume is deafening to you, true.

Gotta agree - I can listen to a little rap or heavy metal (say 2-3 minutes) but no more. When I was young my folks used to make fun of "real music", ie CCR, the Stones, etc. Used to bug the heck out of me. Always said I would never criticize the younger generation's music. Then I heard rap where a little bit goes a long way. Seems country is now the new R&R and folks like Lady Ga Ga are ????? Give me a little Jim Morrison, Jimmy Page and Stairway or 18 minutes of Indagadavita - now there's real music!!

One man's music is another man's headache.

At my age which is probably older than most here, I still enjoy Metallica's Master of Puppets, Papa Roach's Last Resort, Mountain's Mississippi Queen and others.

Also having taught guitar to many "little Heavy Metal Gods in Waitng", I resort back to more traditional music. George Benson, Masquerade, Johnny Mathis, Misty, Benny Goodman, Stompin at the Savoy, Goodman's Stardust transcribed to guitar. I live to play Jazz but appreciate the driving sound of other forms of music.

Rap's LYRICS are just plain offensive to me.

"This Masquerade" is the real title. Written by Leon Russell, not Picksburg's own Benson. Just sayin. George did a nice job covering it, though.

"Misty" is a jazz standard written in 1954 by the pianist Erroll Garner. Just sayin but it became Mathis signature song.

I said this in another thread...There is a difference between rap and metal. That difference is the listening experience. If you are not a metalhead, the experience is going to be an intensely stressful one. You are going to feel tense and very uneasy.

I cannot stand metal. Rap, I can at least stand if I am in the mood for a hard laugh. I can't get any comic relife out of metal. I can listen to it in any mood, unlike hard metal, which feels like a wretched mess of negative emotions. Furthermore, everyone I knew that listened to hard rock/metal is a troublemaker.

Some people love an adrenile rush. They have an appetite for stress, anxiety, brain damage, and ear damager. I am not a doctor, but that's a no brainer.

Yet another reason why I am not a conservative. By the way, I don't Mark Levin or Michael Savage because they use wretched music like "Master of Puppets" (Metallica) in their programs. Rock music went in so many directions that it is forever lost and forgotten.

I hope to God that these metalheads get shut out of the radio and music industry. I guess it's not much to worry about because not many stations play Megadeth or Ozzy to begin with.

Both Levin and Savage are cranky, old crybabies. They can't be happy or worryless about anything. I am not that crazy about Obama, but he actually did some things, such as restore the ban on assult weapons, something that made the Clinton era safer and better than where we are now.
