I know about binaural beats and frequencies affecting the brain and whatnot, but honestly, it annoys me when music is always spoken of as a
brainwashing new world order tool. In my experience, it just simply isn't. At all. I listen to Rap, Pop, Hardcore, Metal, Rock, Jazz, Classical, you
name it, and not once have I felt the need to go rape teenagers, hail some Antichrist or Satan, nor have I gotten the urge to sit back and let my
government rule my existence (because according to some, that's what music should do to you).
Rap isn't just idiots talking over a beat. Its real music made with real talent. Metal and Hardcore isn't just screaming and wailing on a guitar.
Its complex and emotional music that takes quite a bit of intelligence to make. Its as real as anything. Rock doesn't promote bad behavior or
anything like that, its just fun and carefree.
What becomes the product of listening to music is what the person listening to it gets from it. Its also the fear from people that just can't accept
new forms of music that taints it's image, because it's easy to blame when you don't like it and want it gone.
Times are changing, and people are becoming more open and accepting of taboo subjects. And music is an example of this. It's just that simple, and
people who can't change are just hindering the progress of music.
Music is something that is beautiful in all forms in my opinion. And to say a type is bad or terrible or what have you is just plain ignorance. You
have a choice on how you want to interpret a song.
