I think it is one of the best things ever. Artists like Good Charlotte, Creed, Linkin Park, Staind, and P.O.D. are trying to present a more positive look on life. Let's take a look at each artist and see how they are looking on life more positively.
Good Charlotte - "Hold On" tells people to hang on and not to comit suicide when times get tough. "The Anthem" tells people not to change who they are to fit in with the popular crowd. "Girls And Boys" talks about how "all of these boys and all of these girls are losing their souls in a material world. "Emotionless" is a letter of forgiveness to joel and benji madden's father. That song seems to encourage people to forgive those that hurt them.
Creed - "What's This Life For" encourages us to find out what this life's for and concludes that it will be okay because we live under the reign of one king. "Higher" asks someone to take us to a place where there is no pain. "What If" says "what if your words could be judged like a crime." "Weathered" finds a hurting soul about to commit suicide but decides to hang on.
Linkin Park - Several linkin park song like "Don't Stay" and "Hit The Floor" encourage people not to get mixed up with bad friends that will hurt you. "Somewhere I Belong" wants to find a place where the singer is happy and content and not bothered by the worlds troubles.
Staind - "Price To Play" warns about how using people will get you in trouble. "So Far Away" talks about a person who has found a new life with peace and is old life is so far away.
P.O.D. - "Youth Of The Nation" talks about the problems with teens families and how that causes teen shootings at schools. "Set It Off" states "Set it off rise let your spirit fly." "Sleeping Awake" talks about how they are "dreaming of zion awake sleeping awake" Most P.O.D. songs follow this pattern.
It's not just these artists, there are many others that have a positive message. It's really refreshing to me to see artists that aren't bogged down with hate and drugs and thoughts of suicide.
