Heavy Metal Bad For The Teenage Mind

.. influences outward violence towards others in many ways. Drawn to an act of complete domination-violent urges of decapitation pre-meditated murder,invidious-soon she will be vanquished, insidious is a disturbing verse from Cannibal Corpse:Gallery of Suicide. It sounds to be a very disturbed band who has probably influenced many people to do not nice things. In the verse above one can depict a message to beat and kill an innocent woman or girlfriend.

Lyrics such as these are probably what teach teens to go out and kill, beat, or rape someone for fun or as a group activity. The Columbine school shooting in Colorado probably had something to do with explicit lyrics in music the teens were listening to. These lyrics are probably also incorperated with hate and anger for other people at that school that had some effect on discrimination and ridicule of the teens who let loose a barrage of ammunition and hatred in Columbine on that day. Many lead singers have commited suicide due to their music and music from others as well. For example, Curt Kobain from Nirvana; a death which devastated the alternative/heavy metal genre for a long while. During many news casts after the Columbine shooting the media blamed one particular group for the murderous rampage at the school and that group was Marilyn Manson.

The Anti-Christ superstar has been the most targeted musician for teen deaths in the past 5 years(Rosen). However the media still only points him out instead of the entire heavy metal world and how it has effected thousands of peoples lives through a little thing called a CD. Its like passing out live ammunition at stores all over the world, to all ages of people of all genders as a sort of mental weapon to be used at home and store thoughts of death and destruction for all to have. After all you have to have something to blame the lives of young innocent people for being corrupted by a few explicit lyrics. Temptation to kill again- The sensation comes over me, An addiction to murdering-I can’t stop killing Another verse from Cannibal Corpse: The Bleeding sounds like the mind of a killer and tempts teens to go out and start shooting rampages and killing schoolmates, family and innocent others.If your child thinks like this get them help.

They really need it. Try to get them away from the music that will probably condem them to a bad way of life. Teens that are violent toward others probably could use a good role model to look up to and be a positive way to do things with. Show them they have been missing out on the fun things in life that have nothing to do with hate, death, or destruction towards themeselves or others as a way of life. Role models are things everyone needs in their life no matter if it’s a cartoon or a real person they see everyday.

A partial cause for the violence and suicide of teens is what you would call heavy metal. Parents have a large effect on what their teens do. They should more carefully review the music their teens are listening to, to prevent things like the suicide of their teen which has happened to many parents across the country today. So read the label next time at the mall. Just as in the 72 laboratory mice that ran through the maze, heavy metal may affect the way that teens think during school, at home,even while sleeping(Eaton) Just think about monitoring the time that they listen to their music during the day and their mentallity should stay normal as far as tests have shown. Just don’t treat your teen as a mouse.

And last, the suicide and violence toward others can be stopped or prevented by stopping the music at its source. The musicians and groups that pump out the music that can kill others and even your teen just as it did to Raymond Kuntzs’ son Richard. In closing, music is a big part of the human experience and there is no possible way to avoid it. So while your taking the journey of life be careful of what music you stop and listen to because it can make your journey smooth or it can make it a rough one not just for you but the people around you and the people who care about you. So remember, read the label, take care of your mind, its the only one you have.

Treat each other with kindness and respect because you don’t know if it could come back and haunt you some day. Bibliography Works Cited Cannibal Corpse.
