I never understood it
I'm a smooth jazz man. Peaceful, soothing...relaxing.
I'm very open-minded.. but I put death metal in the same category that i put nonsensical rap music.
That is because your taste is different. I have heard people refer to jazz as "nonsense".
I think if the OP is going to question any music, it should be hip hop/ gangster rap. An "art" that promotes selling drugs, murder, violence against
women, racism (mostly against whites).
I have seen this music warp a persons mind right in front of my eyes. I'm talking about the hardcore gangster stuff. I'm a fan of old school rap.
I never considered any kind of music negative up until Eminem came on the scene. he made the culture a lot more popular with cross over fanfs. Now all
of a sudden it's considered "cool" to punch a woman in the face. Now it is "cool" to sell crack to minors. Now it is "cool" kill homosexuals.
I live in Detroit, and the teenagers around here could have you begging for an encounter with a rabid wolverine over an encounter with them.
Hip Hop also promotes an anti-intellectual philosophy. Our children buy it, and our children respect it.
The catch is, I'm white. If someone doesn't like what I say about hip hop, they can call me a racist, and that will be all that matters.
And there are very few rappers that can even rap. As long as you find someone with a keyboard and a drum machine, all you have to do is TALK about
killing women over the beat and you're golden.
I don't understand it much anymore. It's getting really scary around here these days.
I'd give anything to see kids listening to black metal over this.
