does anyone know where i could get some good information on the topic, im doing a speech on it at my school and i wanna make it clear its complete BS that bands should get blamed. So any sources or information would be helpful. Thanks.

You can probably just prove how ****ty parenting has gotten to prove your point. Even then I'm pretty sure video games have been more of a scapegoat than metal has been. This is the first I've heard of metal being mentioned as the cause.

People still blame bands?

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Go listen to Marilyn Manson interview with Michael Moore, in Bowling for Columbine. Generally there out there, I do not know where to find them though. Basically though, the people who blame this stuff are just a bunch of politicians placing the blame somewhere to avoid it. Seriously though, go watch Bowling for Columbine it is pretty eye opening to this school shooting stuff. It compares Germany to America and it shows that people in Germany listen to Manson and don't shoot up school, basically showing that Manson or metal for that matter was not responsible. It was the bullying of the kids. The funny part was apparently the kids who shot up Columbine didn't even listen to Manson and the Politicians blamed him anyway lol, that is ignorance enough right there.

yes of course....metal. not at ALL fitty cent or any other gangsta rap.... what kid in highschool who is crazy enough to shoot someone actually listens to metal. theyre usually the LEAST likely to shoot up a school. that should be proof enough. bowling for columbine would be a good source

During your speech, play some brutal death metal or something. Then ask if anybody would like to shoot up the school because of the music.

Your stereotyping people who listen to rap, that is not cool dude. You also did not make sense to other people, posting in threads like this, you have to make sense to OTHER people as well, not just yourself.

well talking about shooting people in your mainstream rap music makes a lot more sense than mainstream (if there actually is any) death metal (unless its cannibal corpse)

just elaborate on the total miscorrelation between metal and shootings

ex : one guy likes metal, shoots a school

...


MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of people like metal : dont shoot school

you dont even need that many, just like.. that one shooter of dawson listened to megadeth ? FINE, i do also, so how come I didn't shoot up a school ? obviously there must be some element in the mix that touched him and not I

perhaps ****ty parenting ? bullying? drugs ?

Hell yes. Eminem is awesome, i don't care what anyone thinks.

You should state that it's BS that they can't take the blame for their own mistakes. Just because it's violent music, doesn't mean it inspires violence...generally music is a therapist.
Call me Jeff if you want, I prefer that.

They say music can change moods and alter you, well can it load a gun up and **** it too, well if it can then next time you assault a dood, just tell the judge it was my fault and i'll get sued.

yay for marshal.

"I Wouldnt say anything. i would listen to what they had to say, and thats what no one did"

Marilyn Manson when asked what he would say to Dylan and Erik before the Shootings.
