  • Yes, music lyrics promote violence.

    While many music lyrics do not promote violence, lyrics from genres such as rap and metal rock can stir emotions of anger and aggression that lead to violence or directly incite violence by describing violent acts. At the same time, lyrics can promote a host of other non-violent reactions that benefit the listener. This is the risk of expression and art. Some may incite anger, aggression, and violence.

  • It does lead to violence

    Some people out there are easily influenced by music and will change people's attitude towards other people and they start saying swear words which will lead to conflicts against people and will finally lead to violence.Music with bad lyrics should be banned to be released to the public.It also influences people to take drugs because some of these songs promote the intake of drugs

  • Music advocating violence can be dangerous to the minds of young children

    Young children look for role models, for people and things to admire and learn from. It is because of the sounds around them that they learn to talk. So why should we surround them with people singing about abusing the relative and trying to support rape? What example is this setting? If young children are exposed to these outrageous lyrics, it will just cause another great malaise within another generation of possible genius' whose potential is wasted on junk food and video games.

  • Music is a thought provoking experience.

    Violence and aggression is promoted and portrayed very thoroughly in many song lyrics. “Aggressive thoughts can influence perceptions of ongoing social interactions, coloring them with an aggressive tint. Such aggression-biased interpretaions can, in turn, instigate a more aggressive response -verbal or physical- than would have been emitted in a nonbiased state, thus provoking an aggressive escalatory spiral of antisocial exchanges” (Anderson, 5). Violence and hatred towards others is a turn off in social cues making it hard for one trying to grow. The content of some music could be a gateway to jail.

  • Music does not promote violence.

    Music does not promote violence. The lyrics are just words used to entertain, but if people and children are taking these lyrics literally, it's their parents' fault. If these children were raised right and knew right from wrong, then they would understand that, again, lyrics are just words and violence is wrong.

  • Yes, IT DOES

    If you are between 16-21 then you wont know it as much however the anger in the song will e affecting you on a sub conscious level. If you are any younger than this then your brain hasn't developed enough yet. Its the same as toddlers watching tom and Jerry. Doesn't seem that violent to us... But in their minds it is scarface.

  • Kids choose to listen to the lyrics and do what they say because they think it is ok, or they take the lyrics too seriously

    I think that the lyrics presented in music do not influence kids in a negative way. People like TENTH AVENUE NORTH, or Britt Nicole sing songs telling about how “you are worth more than gold” or “you are more than the choices that you make”.Not all songs are that bad, especially when some have positive lyrics in them.

  • Yes, music lyrics promote violence.

    I believe that music lyrics promote violence. I think rap music is one of the worst offenders when it comes to lyrics and violence. Listen and you can hear about killings, drug use, and worst of all, violent references to women. This is promoting violence in young people who listen to the music over and over again. It is unfortunate that the music lyrics may shape their ideas about how to treat women.

  • This is definitely a falsehood.

    The stigma of correlation between violent people and violent music is just a lazy attempt to blame something. Violent and aggressive music can help calm a person down when they feel violent or aggresive. Music is a venting method so people don’t act a fool and do something crazily violent.

  • Of course it doesn’t!

    It's music, it's used to entertain. Sure, it has some "Violence" in it, but do you really think the guys from Foster the People shot a bunch of people? Or that Slipknot slit someones throat? No. So quit your whining, and accept that music does not create more violent acts.

  • Well hell no.

    Music is just something to entertain. Its nothing more than that. I grew up listening to the music people would consider violent and i am a perfectly fine human being. For someone to believe that it is violent is absolutely stupid. Back when heavier music was available, nobody had a problem with it and if you did, just listen to something else. If you are that strong against harder music, do not listen to it. Simple as that. Yeah you hear about more violent things but if you listen to country music or even operas, you hear them sponsoring drinking, low-key mentioning sex and one night stands, and even murders and other violent acts. But those are acts that some people deal with in life and just wanted to turn into a catchy tune. Its nothing to follow or do because the song you heard on the radio or Pandora played it. Yes, some songs can go overboard but it doesn't mean that you go on a hate strike for some of the stuff they do. That person is making money just like everyone else.
