They are so right, and all the people they are interviewing are totally trying to counterargue their point, and failing.
Have you ever seen a 5th grader singing rap songs 4-letter-words and all, and waving his hand around like he has a gun. God dayum, I'm not afraid of the quiet kids blowing up the school, I'm fuckin afraid of the 10yr old rap-loving kids that thing dealin drugs and shooting people is the only way to become a famous rapper.
I may sound like a fuckin grandma here, but ####, why the fuck does all popular music hafta be based on drugs, violence, cussing, prostitution, and more violence.
Personaly, when I'm listening to music, the tunes only make up 1/2 of the appriciation of the song. The lyrics are equally powerful to me. When I hear "and i'm gunna fucking shoot my mom, and deal fuckin cocane, but roll it in flour first so I can get shot" holy shit, that turns me off of the music and bashes my vibe so fast, it's not even funny. This is the sole reason I can't listen to rap. As well as most popular 'rock' such as ICP etc. It's fuckin unnessicary, and It's not entertaining.
I personally REALLY enjoy the tunes of radiohead, smashing pumpkins, john mayer, weezer, etc. because they rarely cuss, and when they do, there's a #### good reason. And their lyrics are normaly upbeat, and ALWAYS thought-provoking and tell some sort of entertaining story.
The only exception I have to this is Marilin Manson, I'm still not that big of a fan of the lyrics: 'we're all desposible teens' etc. But he truly is an artist, and he has build a hardcore image, that's REALLY creative, and makes sweet videos. Unlike rap videos, which are all about sex and drugs, and metal teeth (WTF is with that anyway? I see kids at school who but fawking aluminum gum wrappers on their teeth!). Don't get me wrong, looking at a hundred chicks with nothing on but a thong is hardcore, but I would rather see something artful, and creative.
I know this is a rant. It's supposed to be cuz I'm fuckin ranting.
This is a very split opinion among teens (most against my views) but I thought I'd share my opinon, and hopefully bash your mind untill your's falls out too (in the form of a post paleese :)) I'd like to see where everyone stands on this issue.
btw. Luke: You think I should clean this up and turn it into an OO?
