A lot of conservative media claims that modern music is negatively influencing and corrupting children and teenagers. But does it really? And to what extent? [[User:MrGrieves|MrGrieves]] 06:33, 20 June 2008 (EDT)
No, I don't think so. I know that I, as an older teenager, listen to a lot of the bands that conservatives condemn, such as Rammstein, System of a Down and a lot of other heavy metal bands. Yes I think there are problems when musicians seem to be advocating immoral behaviour in their music or lifestyles, but I think that most bands only advocate behavoiur that conservatives see as immoral, rather then us liberals, so its often a matter of opinion or perception. So mayb youths are being "corrupted" from a conserative
christian POV but from a liberal POV its just life. In that case its up the parents to be responsible about what they want their children hearing. [[User:Bolly|Bolly]] 10:41, 23 June 2008
:Yes... *nods nods*. I usually drive a bit faster when listening to anything 160bpms or higher--though I never exceed 70 MPH on a major highway; speed limit = 65 MPH.
:Just an example:
::A rising female musician--not saying the name, but it's easy to guess--promotes "experimenting" in one of her songs. The song can easily become stuck in your head. The listener can begin to question, "Hmm, I wonder what that would be like?" Life continues... "the environment forms the creature" and the listener could possibly answer her question.
