SCF, quite true.
I think I understood what you meant, but I'm glad you clarified.

In general, the mainstream music scene is influenced by not so friendly characters (see mainstream media). That doesn't mean every single song that
is on the radio is evil. Far from it.
However, as you said, darknes has a much easier time influencing you with words in music than just the words themselves.
If someone who was in service to the dark outright said how they felt to your face, you'd have a much different reaction than if they were put in
