Ok,Im 14 and gonna be 15 in 2 months,and I was looking around in some of my dads old storage sheds and I found the Pantera album "Vulgar Display Of Power" Ive listened to a few Pantera songs before and liked them.The CD was in mint condition and all that,so I was going to bring it home with me but my dad asked me what it was and asked to see it.So I handed it to him.He looked at the song titles and then read the lyrics and said,"Are you serious?Theirs no way this garbage is gonna be played in my house.Throw it away." Well I didnt and gave it to my friend.But anyway,do you think if Im 15 I should have the right to listen to what I want or should I still have some of the music I listen to monitored?
Ok.
#2
No! now listen to your daddy... he knows what is best.


I feel bad, you were deprived of Pantera.

I think you should be able to listen to whatever the hell you want.

But didn't you say that it was his CD in the first place?
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
#5
It wasnt his he owns a storage shed company I looked in somebody who wasnt paying rents and it was in a big box of other CDs and stuff like Ice Cube and that bs.
Ok.
#6
freedom of... listening? he surely cant stop you from listening to it...
BASSLINES TO MAKE YOUR CHEST CAVITY SHUDDER.

My mom wouldn't let me buy PA'd albums until I was 16. I think you should be allowed to listen to what you want, but there's no arguing with some parents. What does your dad listen to?/What makes him such an authority on music?
When crying don't help
You can't compose yourself
It's best to compose a poem
An honest verse of longing
Or a simple song of hope...

he's your dad and you're his kid. it's not like he just doesn't want you to have fun. there are a lot of dark lyrics in that album.
#10
he listens to INXS and all the bands like that.I hate his taste in music.It sucks so bad.
Ok.
#12
Dude you can be 2 years old and listening to Cannibal Corpse there is nothin wrong with it, now if you are 15 years old and listening to britney spears now you are a mess lol anyways Pantera is a great band i even have a Pantera tatoo in my arm, so go get your cd back and hide it like if it was drug or something
#13
Really though, how would your parents even know? My parents haven't known what I've been listening to for the past six years...

[Well, partly because they're gone all the time, and partly because of headphones.]
#14
you should be able to listen to what you want by that age....it's unfortunate that people use such Nazi-esk tactics on their children, by that age the damage is done if any.
#15
Yeah my friends just holding it for me until I get a chance to burn it on the computer and just listen to it when their not home.Its just weird how Im getting a job next week,going to manage my money and all that,but I cant listen to Pantera.
Ok.
#17
I dunno, if you're 15, you dad still pretty much owns you. Sorry.

Yawn, I live in the Bubble too. Weeeeiiiird.
#18

Bad? That's real life. So they're shielding you from the real world?

Real smart, send your kid into the real world with no idea of what is really out there.

because the idea of being negatively influenced by negative lyrics is so far-fetched.
#22

Yeah, unless you're a ****ing dumbass.

I really don't understand why parents feel the need to shield their kids from real life. It's ridiculous.

The reason I dont argue is because he is a former christian choir singer and will always find a way to win against heavy metal..Always.

there's a difference. i'm a teenager and i know it can be annoying but some of this stuff isn't "real life". a kid 14, 15, 16 years old can be influenced really easily, though most won't admit it.
#26
You should be able to listen whatever you feel like sorry to say that but your dad just acted like a big arsehole

I don't buy that in the least.

People make music out to be a lot more than it is. He shouldn't listen to music because it might give him bad ideas, but don't worry about all the Mcdonalds and Pepsi ads that are pumping the kids into unhealthy fatties.

music touches people in a way nothing else can. It's not "just music" to more than a lot of people. for more than a lot of people music can change their emotions, and if it can do that it can definitly effect a person's way of thinking.

just because obesity is a problem doesn't mean that no other problems are serious.

woah.All of the sudden my dad just walked up to me and told me,"Well,I dont really care if you listen to it as long as your brother doesnt hear it."

Woohoo!
Ok.

Yeah I agree with the last part.

I just really fail to see how music is a problem at all. I have not once met anyone who was whacked out because of the music they listen to, and I know a lot of people who listen to a lot of different genres.

well i didn't really word my posts right before so this might sound hypocritical but that's my fault, I don't really have a problem with music, I just understand why some adults might. because of the influence it can hold over people

LOL! The complete randomness of that last statement is just LOL! I think the most problematic thing is if the kid wants to be exactly like the person who made this music. Take a look at the pathetic hip hop/rap community and all its followers. Baggy pants loose shirts and the most retarded speech patterns you can imagine. If this is the case with... anyone, then they probably should not listen to music. BE YOURSELF KIDS!

Oh I see. A lot of adults use music as a scapegoat. They're fools.

We live in a world where mass murder is tolerated, where injustice is the way of life, a world full of bigotry, but music is definitely what's ruining the kids.

i know, it's sad. people try to find things to blame rather than blame the people that actually do it. i'm not saying music or movies or whatever makes people bad, i'm just saying it's possible to influence a person negatively.

Rofl.
You dad sucks, mine just bash my music.
Listen to whatever you want and say,
"Fuck you old man, I'll listen to what I'd like."
Or just do what he says.
You're not brutal.
