I'm doing a research project/paper arguing that music has a major effect on the general public - in political awareness (voting and political affairs in general), in advertising products, and on life in general.

So my question to you is: How do you think music affects the general public?

It would be awesome if you could provide some news articles providing information about some situations.

Thanks!

Music kinda of effects what your social status is in a way. The people who listen to rap are generally more popular than the people who listen to metal. It creates a prejudice basically.

Well, in sociological standards it does have a big affect. There is music in every culture, and people sometimes act the way certain musicians act becuase they can connect to those musicians in lyrics or in a personal experience that is simmilar to the listener and the musician.

You are correct sir. Everyone at my school (at least who's cool) listens to the rap "music" on the radio. Me, I listen to old-school rock and metal, and some newer metal.
The only rap artist I'll willingly listen to is Public Enemy, partially because of the message and partially because of the fact that it's not just one looped beat under some "gangsta" who's bragging rhythmically.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Ehh, I know they use music in advertising to draw customers in. A bit like how different colours affect peoples moods. For instance, I used to work in oxfam, and they targeted customers in the later years of their life. So they played soft music from the 60s in the shop. Radio 1 isn't excactly going to bring in the customers...

But yea, maybe that helps if I understood the question lol.
