Music has always been a significant part of my life When I was younger I was involved in the church and school choirs I often listened to my father play the guitar and I now attend a few of his bands gigs in various country bars and social events I like to think that I am well-immersed in all types of music but I took advantage of the opportunity to study a few different artists with whom I am not so familiar I chose rock music because I believe it along with others is a genre which is often misunderstood Many of my friends ridicule it because they assume the lyrics contain nothing but general hate disgust and rebellion I would like to prove that opinion wrong and embrace rock music for all of its throbbing beats screams and crude if effective lyrics Ultimately I want to absorb more knowledge of music and reject the common sense about rock music which so many people have tried to impress upon me In order to obtain my data I turned first to my family Both my stepfather and mother love rock music old and modern so from them I gathered a few CD booklets with lyrics inside In addition websites like wwwlyricscom and wwwazlyricscom were both extremely helpful in finding legitimate lyrics from an abundance of artists The performers which I chose were Metallica Ozzie Osbourne Linkin Park and Hoobastank I realize that this hardly encompasses all of rock music but I tried to pick a couple groups who were more current and then two whose reputations by now have been well-established I chose the songs to analyze nearly completely by the titles which to me displayed the stereotype of the angry rock group In terms of Metallica and Ozzie Osbourne both which have multiple CDs I chose songs from more than one CD in order to get more variety in the lyrics themselves From Hoobastanks CD
