  • An Era Of Punk - 1,711 words
    ... harlton, Rock music, 208). Smith also had a new version of the song My Generation in which she shouted obscenities, making it clear to every one that her generation was new and angrier. Most of the Ramones songs did not last more than two minuets, but it was arguably the most exhilarating half-hour in rock and Roll. The Ramones very simple, fast high-energy music and monotone vocals became a prototype for much punk rock to follow (Charlton, Rock Music. 208). The Ramones were the first of the New York Bands to tour extensively, and their appearances in England in 1976 was later cited by many English punk bands as the original inspiration for that countrys do-it-yourself rock revolution.

    Charm City The bitter winds blow off the Chesapeake as we drive the Uhaul down the old cobblestone street toward our new apartment. My stomach flips with excitement. I'm actually moving to Baltimore. Charm City. The City That Reads. (At least this is what all the bus benches claim, but I'm sure many would argue.).

The city where in 1826, an 8 year old Frederick Bailey retreated from the chains of slavery by learning to read and 21 years later, as Frederick Douglas, published the North Star ...

    Comparison of Margaret Mead's "Coming in Age" to Russian Youth In an attempt to challenge societal values, youth cultures, in the form of rebellion, act and dress radically and form groups in protest. These dissident actions against the structure of existing society promotes the beginning of new small groups which reflect their own rules, structures, class, gender and ethnic ideologies. So, the youth culture, in challenging societal values, at the same time is reflecting them.

  • Def Leppard Hysteria - 980 words
    Def Leppard - Hysteria Def Leppard - HYSTERIA Def Leppard's album, HYSTERIA (1987), is a great classic that will be forever remembered. Lead singer Joe Elliot sings songs all based around women, whether the songs be about man's need for a woman or the hardships that come with loving women. "The main theme he deals with in this album is men's relationships to women" (Adams 68). The relationships he speaks about in his songs are not necessarily love relationships. Elliot advocates his desires for the lusts of a woman in his songs. "Def Leppard would rather keep it simple, with quick, punchy guitar riffs and a straight-from-the-crotch philosophy. These songs are devoted to one adolescent fantas ...

  • Dinosaurs - 1,052 words
    Dinosaurs When dinosaur bones were first found they thought that they belonged to giant lizards. The word "dinosaur" means "terrible lizard". The larger dinosaurs must have seemed to be terrible to the smaller animals. Some of the first dinosaurs were only about as big as a small dog. That is how big the horses of that time were. Over the years, as the dinosaurs aged, they grew to be much more large in size. The sizes of dinosaurs ranged greatly, all the way from two feet long to one hundred and fifty feet long. They weighed as much as fifty tons, which is seven African Bull Elephants.We first discovered the fossils and bones shortly under the surface of the Earth. After scientists got more ...

Once the person begins using heroin, he/she quickly develops a tolerance to the drug and needs more and more to get the same effects. "Heroin is named after the German word for hero, heroisch" (Heroin, 1/2). The substitute of Heroin, Methadone, "was initially christened Dolphine in honor of Adolf Hitler" (1/2).

  • From The Dream To The Womb - 1,355 words
    From The Dream To The Womb From the Dream to the Womb: Visionary Impulse and Political Ambivalence in The Great Gatsby It seems hard to believe in our period, when a three-decade lurch to the political Right has anathematized the word, but F. Scott Fitzgerald once, rather fashionably, believed himself to be a socialist. Some years before, he had also, less fashionably, tried hard to think himself a Catholic. While one hardly associates the characteristic setting of Fitzgerald's novels, his chosen kingdom of the sybaritic fabulous, with either proletarian solidarity or priestly devotions, it will be the argument of this essay that a tension between Left and religiose perspectives structures t ...

  • Grunge - 1,563 words
    Grunge In the isolated city of Seattle during the mid 1980's a new sound and attitude was developing. Although it didn't yet have a coined term it would later become know as Grunge, originally a tounge-in cheek term for the pungent guitar noise propagated by the cultish independent label Sub Pop (Grunge). This mix of 70's metal and early 80's punk blasted into mainstream America and brought the hard rock sound of the 70's back to life, but the sudden, unexpected and to some unwanted, fame and popularity would prove to much for it and like so many pop culture movements before, it would fade away under the pressure(History). Grunge owes it's start in part to the area in which it was created, S ...

Drawn to an act of complete domination-violent urges of decapitation pre-meditated murder,invidious-soon she will be vanquished, insidious is a disturbing verse from Cannibal Corpse:Gallery of Suicide. It sounds to be a very disturbed band who has probably influenced many people to do not nice things. In the verse above one can depict a message to beat and kill an innocent woman or girlfriend. Lyrics such as these are probably what teach teens to go out and kill, beat, or rape someone for fun or as a group activity. The Columbine school shooting in Colorado probably had something to do with explicit lyrics in music the teens were l ...

  • Music And Censorship - 1,884 words
    Music And Censorship In our society today, some musicians and their music drain and plague the moral and spiritual well-being of the people; therefore, censorship offers a necessary action that we must take to keep the world from becoming a land of decadence. The musicians lives are not examples for the children or the adults. The lyrics of many songs are not suitable for anyone. All types of music need some kind of censorship. Censorship makes a person realize that music is good for the heart. Censorship totally makes people act better, and when thinking better, this sustains a better society. The lives of some musicians contain types of anarchy and self-gratification. Once the musicians re ...

  • Music Impact On Everyday Life - 1,579 words
    Music Impact on Everyday Life The Music Made Me Do It Music has a huge impact on the everyday lives of individuals in America today. It is an important part of the sociological self, which causes a person to feel and act in a certain manner. Sensual guitar playing, a suggestive song, hard rock power chords, or a tune from the past are all highly powerful forces in shaping one's actions. I have taken a particular interest in the way that different genres of music affect student's actions at this university. This paper will take into account the effects that particular genres of music have on people. Because we are in a college town such as Austin it is easy to observe the effects that music h ...

  • Nuclear Waste - 558 words
    Nuclear Waste The United States alone produces an average volume of commercial low-level radioactive waste of about 500,000 cubic feet each year. That is a lot of waste! This comes from a variety of places. Mainly though, it is produced by nuclear power plants. This waste brings up a problem though. It is difficult to dispose of radioactive materials for two reasons. One, some radioactive materials last for thousands of years. Two, most radioactive materials are hazardous and can't be stored with conventional means. Currently, there are a few proposals that have been made to combat this problem. These include near-surface facilities, mined cavities, and geological repositories. In the past, ...
