Teenagers listen to an average of nearly 2.5 hours of music per day. Guess what they’re hearing about?

One in three popular songs contains explicit references to drug or alcohol use, according to a new report in The Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. That means kids are receiving about 35 references to substance abuse for every hour of music they listen to, the authors determined.

Selling drugs, guns, abusing women ...

Whilst looking at music lyrics, in the past 4 decades, lyrics have become increasingly explicit particularly with reference to Drugs, sex, sexual violence etc. And the greatest concern in music lyrics is Heavy Metal and Rap genres often the songs "as they compound the environment in which dome adolescents increasingly are confronted with pregnancy, drug use, AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, injuries, homicide and suicide'.

To date no studies have documented a cause and effect relationship between sexually explicit or violent lyrics and adverse behavioural effects, however there is an acknowledged overall effect that music has an effect on people. If it didn't have an effect on people in general there would be no point listening to it.

Paediatricians who have specialised in adolescent medicine are keenly aware of how crucial music is to a teen's identity and how it helps them define important social and sub cultural boundaries, teens listen to on average 40 hours of music per week.

How TV Violence Affects Kids

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics website, children between the ages of two and eighteen spend an average of three hours each day watching television. A three-year National Television Study, reported by the AAP, found that children’s shows had the most violence of all television programming. Statistics read that some cartoons average twenty acts of violence in one hour, and that by the age of eighteen children will have seen 16,000 simulated murders and 200,000 acts of violence on television
