Listening to Screamo and Heavy Metal music makes life a better place because it takes you away from the world for a few minutes and puts you in your head and into a your own world filled with an eternity of thoughts.It takes you to your imaginary field of mystical flowers and creates a scenery according to what you are feeling whether it be happy, sad, or anger. When the song is over , you're back in the real world and you suddenly feel at peace with the world now.

500 character limit?

Heavy death metal music uses lyrics and song styles to build off of personal emotions such as anger, hatred, rage, evil, etc. that if you listen to long enough will cause people to feel more angry in life, and your actions that are built off of these emotions would be detrimental to the situation you are in in real life. The idea that after your listening to the music you are at peace may be your opinion, but to others it may cause them to act with more anger and hatred...

This debate was merely based on my
opinion on wat I think puts you at peace with the world. You said that Metal music causes anger and evil and rage...well that is not true for everyone, it may be for you, but then again that is your opinion.
Therefore you cant argue that it puts EVERYONE in that particular mood (anger).
I urge you to vote affirmative ballet

Studies that show that heavy metal music increases testosterone and aggression...

First time I've ever heard screamo and heavy death metal compared to imaginary fields of mystical flowers. I'm afraid I don't see the connection.

I suppose that COULD happen, if you happened to overdose on LSD during the concert; but from what I've read, that could happen regardless of your location during the trip. Again, no positive connection to the music.

Reasons for voting decision: LOL 500 character limit. -1 conduct for Pro. S/G was even. Pro's argument was that screamo takes you away from the world, but all music can do that. Con provided arguments and refuted pro's = arguments to con. Also provided actual studies and sources = sources to con.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's side had no sources except for his own opinion, he misspelled a few words, and his arguments were nonsensical: scream-o evokes a sense of peace? Con used sources and objective logic.

Reasons for voting decision: Eh...Pro admitted his argument was only his opinion. It wasnt backed by anything logical. Metal takes you to a place of mystical flowers? lol. Con's sources would have won him the debate instantly had they not been brought up in the last round.
