  • Are Societies Ills The Fault Of Rock Music - 558 words
    Are Societies Ill's The Fault Of Rock Music? Rock has been blamed for many things in society such as rape, murder, and suicide. It's human nature to both need a reason for why something happens, and to pass the blame to someone and/or something else.

Now in the 1990's and 2000 music is blamed, will it have the same fate? Music has noconsciouness, will of it's own, or any inherent good and evil. Yet we blame rock for driving people to commit heinous crimes. Rock is not a living thing, it's not a virus ...

I agree that Canadian music is not American music or British music, but truly Canadian. I like to listen most to Canadian rap artist such as Monolith, Rascalz, Ghetto Concept, Infinite, and other Canadian rap artist. I think that Canadian music is more cultural then American music or British music. Canadian music has culture since there is so much diversity in Canada. I think Canadian artist try not to sell image, but they create music for personal satisfaction. The only thing I can't understand is how the CRTC says that Bryan Adams's album is un-Can ...

  • Rock And Roll - 466 words
    Rock And Roll It is common belief that rock music fosters bad behavior. This statement has no basis; there are no facts whatsoever to support such an accusation. The word rock is a very general term, a wide variety bands fall under the label of rock, bands that range from The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac to Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson. To really make an accusation you must first specify the one you are accusing. And I am not just speaking blindly; I spent a whole year rooming with a Satan worshiper. I listened to Marilyn Manson literally every day and my behavior did not change one bit. When listening to him I felt no sudden urges to go get into a fight or go vandalize the school. I have ...

  • Sisyphus Is The Absurd Hero This Man, Sentenced To Ceaselessly Rolling A Rock To The Top Of A Mountain And Then Watching Its - 1,372 words
    Sisyphus is the absurd hero. This man, sentenced to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain and then watching its descent, is the essence of the absurd hero according to Camus. In retelling the Myth of Sisyphus, Camus is able to create an extremely powerful image with imaginative force, which sums up in an emotional sense the body of the discussion. We are told that Sisyphus is the absurd hero as much through his passions as through his torture. His scorn of the gods, his hatred of death, and his passion for life won him that unspeakable penalty in which the whole being is exerted toward accomplishing nothing." (p.120). Sisyphus is conscious of his dilemma, and in that lays his t ...

  • The History Of Punk Rock - 1,302 words
    THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK Punk rock is a style of music that originated in 1964 in New York City at an underground club called The Dom.

The desegregation movement was just beginning and the effects of the Little Rock Integration Crisis was one of the earliest stepping stones leading towards a united nation; ...

This most seemingly anti-intellectual of genres carries its own 'ideological project'. Before this, the musicals not only exhibited singing and dancing; they were about singing and dancing, explaining the magnitude of that experience. They not only gave the most intense pleasure to their audience but also supplied the justification for that pleasure. The pop songs of the day were the songs from the ...
