I think sports have wiped out, music and theater in schools. It seems like sports are the main focus these days. It must be more beneficial for kids to be competitive and aggressive. Peace
Real music may not die, but it will venture underground where it will stay and has stayed for a while until kids decide again that its cool because its underground.

The begining of planned social and cultural degeneration that started in the early 60s was lead almost primarily by the music industry, and fueled by drugs, sexual deviancy and occultic new age mysticism.
Granted many great pieces of musical artistry have come out of it over the years!
But the dress styles, values, habits, and general attitude of the various social cliques of highschool kids is almost directly dictated to them by the musical style they listen to.
The scary part is the main targets in this are the young and impressionable!

The children are still the target and the music industry is still using their affinity to music as a weapon to snare them and put them at odds with their parents.
I actually think that image has been lost, and replaced with a cleaner more sterile content. That is why the music bad and mindless. Not many musicians dare to push the limits of what is consider socially acceptable.
