Does the music that is produced today have a direct affect on what teenagers in America will do This is a question that many people over the last couple of years have asked constantly With the recent Columbine incident as well as the increase in school shootings many people feel there is something to blame for the violence In situations like these art forms are usually the easiest to blame There is no way to blame one person for the crimes at hand and no one would like to believe that they just poorly raised their own children Suddenly someone steps in and sees the teen listened to some sort of music which is not acceptable by parents standards and you have a culprit The problem with this is that not everyone who has ever listened to any sort of music has developed a desire to go shoot everyone in his or her school No study has proven that music makes a person do anything but maybe listen to the song again Therefore music has no direct affect on what people decide to do with their livesRecently shock-rock has become a very popular genre of music A group named Marilyn Manson has been heavily in the media since 1995 This particular group bases its career on its shock value When the Columbine shootings occurred many people put the blame on Brain Warner the lead singer of Marilyn Manson because of his eccentric appearance and lyrics Many American parents felt that his differences from a more mainstream act like Brittany Spears made his lyrics all that more offensive Since the two boys involved with the Columbine shootings listened to Marilyn Manson he was ultimately blamed for their murderous rampage The media however hardly touched on the fact that both the boys were often tormented at school for being different Secondly that they both had a deep hatred for the jocks that made fun of them everyday
