I'd like to raise a question that's always gnawed away at me. Has music affected Teens and Children? Allow me to explain: Nowadays it seems that musical preferences have driven people apart massively, especially among teens. it seems that where ever i go I'm discriminated for the way I dress or how I keep my body because it gives off a vibe that I like heavy music/metal. also I have little luck making new friends because the large amount of people who prefer rap to metal, because of this musical preference I am largely disliked by fellow people of the same age. I'd just like to know is this coming from music or from another source?

This has always been so, but it has greatly increased in recent years. Before, you couldn't really choose what to listen, for there was nothing else. Now withthe amount of stuff in the media you can choose this, and show it more openly.

also musical preference shows your mentality to some extent.

These days teens are divided into groups and every one wants to belong to one. This brings along the fact that a lot of teens don't have any contact with other groups anymore. And more important, that the smaller, less popular groups get discriminated (as is always the case with smaller groups).

Another aspect is the constant change of fasion, either music or clothing related. A music style can be popular now and next year people have moved to something different, leaving those who still like the previous style behind. I think it's complete BS, there is absolutely no reason why people from two different music groups can't socialise.

Last year most at my school listened to Jumpstyle (a heavier version of techno, approx 120 beats per sec). This year it has lost a lot of his popularity and I'm a 'John' for listening to it...I don't mind though, cuz it's still great music and we still have a wide audience.

I wouldn't worry to much about children picking on you for listening to heavy metal. Each person has a right to listen to what he/she likes and if someone doesn't agree with you tell him he can go fuck himself. It's what I do ;)

I think it's a shame that so few people today listen to classical music. I don't mind simple music, but some of the stuff you hear on radio today really doesn't deserve to be called music, at least not if you want to use the same word for something that took a lot of knowledge and sometimes genius to create.

sweet sigs... huge Maiden fan myself.. I don't think music has affected me in any way. I think I affect the music I listen to. My musical tastes have changed with my different ways of thinking, from simple pop songs when I was younger to more complex and meaningful songs as I grew older and more intelligent. I'm definitely not "corrupted" or anything, I get great grades, have plenty of friends and play lots of sports and am in shape. I doubt my parents even care about what I listen to, because they realize it won't change who I am.

Music has definetaly influenced me. When I was younger, I listened to simple pop stuff, and then one day one of my friends dad was listening to the Sex Pistols while I was over at his house, and that completely changed me. While I didn't know what the lyrics were about, the sheer energy of the music changed my mind about music, and got me into punk. I have noticed the group thing though, that a lot of people tend to only talk to their peers who listen to the same type of music they do, and it dissapoints me really. Luckily this has not affected me, as I tend to talk to really everyone, whether they listen to rap, punk, techno, pop, metal, or anything in between. And nice avatar Vasili, one of my favorite albums by them.
