Question Do you think rap and pop are a bad influence?

Okay, so this has been bothering me for quite some time now.

To me, it seems like all the songs that you hear on the radio in today's world is talking about clubbing, sex, drugs, and everything along those lines. And quite frankly, I wanted to start a topic.

Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne, Brittany Spears, and the list goes on.

It's mostly rap and pop that has been effecting the minds the most.

So I wanted ya'lls opinion; do you think that these popular music artists are a bad influence?

What's bad about those things?

I think that's a pretty speculative statement.

Drugs, sex, clubbing? So you're saying you want our teen society to be influenced around those?

I think the influence of music lyrics on the adolescent mind is largely overestimated. The correlation between lyrical content of the music one listens to and lifestyle has always been tenuous at best. It's a simple fact of life that most teenagers are going to listen to music that has suggestive or controversial lyrics. Same old story as it ever was. Believe it or not there is a lot of positivity that can be found in both the hip hop and pop genres, and If you think pop and rap are the only genres of music that contain suggestive and gratuitous lyrics you really need to listen to more music.

Then let me narrow it down; MEDIA IN GENERAL.

Is that better?

Some drugs in moderation are actually good for you.

If it wasn't for sex you wouldn't be here.

And what's wrong with going somewhere to go dancing?

I will just ask my 16 year old son just as soon as he stops shagging his GF whilst snorting the white stuff off her naked body as Lady Gaga plays in the background what he thinks about this.*

















































*He's not really like this. He fucking hates Lady Gaga.

Totally, because your thoughts, actions, and beliefs are solely dependent on mainstream music.


Grow a ****, a heart, and a brain and then we'll talk about influences.

I don't know, he might be onto something. When my mind was young and impressionable I listened to 'The Thong Song' on the radio... Strangely enough, years later I find myself chasing that whale tail religiously. 92% of my sex drive is attributed to Cisqo.
