It can change your mood, but it won't make you go on maniacal killing sprees like the media suggests.

I put that in my report already too. And I fully agree.

Music not only changes mood, it also changes the bodies reaction too. I did a science project with this, I monitored their heart rate while listening to You Don't Know How It Feels by Tom Petty. Then I monitored their heart rates while listening to Conquer All by Behemoth.

During the Tom Petty song they relaxed in the chair and their heart rate went down.

Behemoth on the other hand, lol, they became a little tense and their heart rate quickened.
My obligatory gear list

Guitars
Schecter C-1 Classic
Gibson SG Special

There has been at least one university conducted test of this, but it's your problem so you google it.

here's what you do
1. Take a fork, preferably metal.
2. Put some tomato sauce on it.
3. Let tomato sauce on fork dry.
4. Turn it in and call it: "The Spaghetti Massacre."

metal in particular is a particularly emotive construct imo. Look at fade to black as the shining example
#22
Definitely.

I cant listen to sad music anymore, I need to listen to happy up-beat music....

Like the Grateful Dead. I listen to them every day and they always keep me in a good mood.

So does Crosby Stills and Nash..... most of the Beatles stuff...... The Byrds.... some Hendrix..... Tom Petty..... etc.
#23
No doubt in my mind. Certain bands tend to get me into different moods, for example, Godspeed You! Black Emperor makes me want to fall asleep (They're a great band, but not unless I'm seriously in the mood for it), whilst Dream Theater or Rush makes me feel awesome. ;D

As far as I'm concerned, that's the number 1 point of music.
In fact, it's number 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 aswell... at LEAST!

Ya think about it Ozzy getting acused for putting subliminal messages into his songs telling people to kill themselves...ya ****ing right, think about it if he did that there would be no fans of his left to buy his stuff so he would lose money and popularity umong the people. Stupid media always blowing things out of proportion.

on a side not it does, but not to a crazy person serial killer extent.

In the most, music doesn't alter my mood.

The type of mood I am in will affect what kinda music I want to listen to though. I tend to find that if I'm stressed I will listen to relaxing music (smooth jazz, classical, acoustic songs) whilst If I'm feeling up for it then I will listen to more pulsing music. If I'm feeling angsty then i tend to listen to aggressive music.

So, I disagree and say that music doesn't really alter my moods, but my moods can affect the music I listen to.

However, If I listen to the "wrong" kind of music, I will tend to feel anxious. Maybe music does affect my mood, but on the larger part, it does not.

Interesting...so the x and y variables are potentially interchangeable. There must be another z variable to account for the interchangeability of the first 2 variables.

Of course it can. A melody and love are very similar in capturing someone's heart.

Warning and Worship always get me sooo depressed, I can almost never listen to them, unless I'm feeling down already.

Equilibrium always get me in a good mood

Cannibal Corpse and Amon marth get me pumped

and so on and so forth

I think it depends on, because my daily taste of music follows my mood so when I'm angry I wanna listen to some heavy music but when I'm happy I wanna listen to happy music.
but sometimes music affect my mood as well.
