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 ...

  • A Lesson From Oliver - 5,155 words
    A Lesson From Oliver by David Jorgensen Like any other morning I was up at four, the day Oliver met with his violent death. At four in the morning the grass is wet. Now, it's still wet at 6 a.m. and even at seven, and these tend to be the hours of choice for most people wishing to appreciate the phenomenon of grass wetness. But it's a tragedy of economics that, when work starts at 5 a.m., one is not afforded the same time-options for grass appreciation as members of the sane world. Nor was this tragedy confined to my having to appreciate the wet grass while in a metabolic state more suited to hibernation. Four a.m. was my only chance to absorb all of northern Ontario's summer morning treasur ...

  • A Textual Analysis - 1,314 words
    A Textual Analysis of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica: An Open Mind and True Heart "Metallica plays heavy metal music." This is a common stereotype of the band. "Their songs consist of nothing but meaningless screaming, while banging their guitars as loud as possible. Hordes of incomprehensible fans jump around in circles flailing their arms in the air screaming the so-called lyrics to their songs. It is not music." Numerous people believe this in all sincerity. The song "Nothing Else Matters," by no means falls under the heavy metal category. It is the type of song that would be played for a slow dance. Through the use of ethos and pathos, the author, James Hetfield, connects with his aud ...

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.

The Earth was locked up tight (179).This description eerily resembles what many have said the Earth will look like during a nuclear winter (Stone, 62). In addition to Dr. Hoenikker and his doomsday games, Vonnegut provides an interesting analysis of atomic age society with the Bokonon religion. This religion, completely made up by Vonnegut and used in this novel, is the religion of every single inhabitant of San Lorenzo, the books imaginary banana republic. This is the island where Jonah eventually ends up, and where t ...

  • Banned And Censored Music - 1,100 words
    Banned and Censored Music Banned and Censored Music The discussion of whether or not the censorship of music is constitutionally sound has come about. This problem has been around since the beginning of music in one way or another. The fact of the matter is that there is technically no such thing as the censorship of music in the United States(Banned Music 1). Although that is supposedly the case, that statement can be very misleading. It is stated in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution that every American is granted the Freedom Of Speech. This includes all musicians. Contrary to this statement, there has been a numerous amount of cases in which a song or music group has be ...

  • Comparison Of Margaret Meads Coming In Age To Russian Youth - 1,277 words
    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. In comparing Margaret Mead's young adults in Coming of Age in Samoa to Russian youth it is evident where the differences arise. The Samoans strong cultural values leave little need for individual expression. Expectatio ...

  • Culture Clash - 818 words
    Culture Clash THE CULTURE CLASH Western civilization has generally progressed along the path of reasoning and a quest for external truths and facts. Contrary to this, the cultures of eastern civilizations have embarked along a more spiritual and mystical course. Eastern civilization has developed into an almost completely different culture that relies heavily on internal explorations, communion with nature, and mystical superstitions. I was able to observe these differences firsthand when I visited a Buddhist temple downtown on Chinese New Year. Buddhism is the belief in Buddha and his teachings and doctrines. The word Buddha itself means enlightened and that is the word I would choose to de ...

  • Derek - 4,128 words
    Derek Derek lifted the large plastic tub, which he had just filled with ice, level with the counter, dumped the ice into the stainless steel container, and sighed. He looked at his watch: 10:25, it said; almost mid-morning, and five eternal minutes left until his fifteen minute coffee break. Fuck it, he thought, I'll take it now. He bent down low with a much-practiced 'bowling' motion and sent the plastic tub whizzing down the tiled corridor into the dish room where it hit the surly dishwasher on the ankles. "'Bowling For Busboys'!" he yelled (out of habit, mostly, since it had been a while since he had found the consequences of that action really amusing), and paced off to the staff room. " ...

I could smell winter in the air, even through my closed window. Soon there'd be snow on the ground. Matchbox Twenty was playing on my clock radio. I want to push you around..." The mood was set for a soft autumn night. However the mood inside my room was quite different. I was running around trying to do a million things a one time. My makeup was all wrong for my outfit. My hair was too big, no, now too flat. My stomach was rolling inside itself. My poor tummy was on tumble dry and I couldn't quite get it to stop. I couldn't find my shoes ...

It was almost a foreshadow of what happened years later at Columbine. Everyone wanted a piece of the Grunge explosion, except Seattle. The people of Seattle quickly became fed up with Grunge, to say the G word in Seattle got angry stares and labeled you as an out of towner(Hype). All the exposure had disrupted the quiet city and the locals were none to happy about it. The bands even turned that into their music, with bands like Mudhoney singing Everybody loves us/Everybody loves our town/That's why I'm thinking of leaving it/Don't believe in it now.../ ...

  • How American Music Has Changed Over The Past 50 Years - 440 words
    How American Music Has Changed Over The Past 50 Years How American Music Has Changed Over The Past 50 Years People have often wondered if music has always been around. Well, to answer that question I did some research to find out where our music originated. Our first reliable music records came from the Greeks and the Romans. Americans musical history is very short when compared to Japan, India, Africa, and China. We don't know much about our history until about 590-604 A.D. when people began to write music down, the first music that was written down was songs sung in churches. Another often asked question I decided to research is why people write music. I got a lot of different answers for ...
