Sex Drugs And Rock And Roll
The children growing up at this time listen to music talking about how amazing drugs are, and how great alcohol is. Kids are more likely to try them because the singers they kick up to are talking so highly Of these products and it seems like there are no repercussions. As well as the drugs, the “sex” part in the saying blew up in the ass for many reasons. One, similar to the drugs, many of the lyrics in the popular songs at the time was about sex, among other things. But also, birth control was created during the time period and grew exponentially in a few years.
Over 12. 5 million women were using birth control within seven years from when the FDA approved the pill. In my opinion, rock and roll is definitely dangerous and responsible for influencing the increase of drug use, but at the end of the day every person makes his or her own decisions. So, yes the music and singers influenced the individual, but ultimately he or she decided to put that drug into their body. But to consider rock and roll irresponsible is ridiculous because a genre can’t be responsible for the actions of others.The songs may promote drug use or ranking or sexual acts but most of the times it is what the artist has been through and about his or her life. Everyone should be responsible for himself or herself, so yes the artists are being irresponsible for doing the drugs and such, but the individuals who do such things cannot portray the genre as a whole.
If people consider rock and roll irresponsible, then they can consider music in general irresponsible because every genre has certain songs or artists who have negative impacts.The constant promotion of drugs and sex from the major artists may pose a threat to society. Kids learn about all these drugs and alcoholic substances at such a younger age now as apposed to in past years and it is mainly because of the music they listen to and other social forms of media. But the artists should want to sing about the wrongs of drugs and the problems they cost instead of singing about how great smoking marijuana is. These artists in rock and roll promote the use of these drugs and because of that the fans go to the concerts drunk or high and that is why rock and roll gets such a bad reputation.Hopefully the people don’t look to Hess artists as role models because of the bad actions these artists do. Also, all the artists overdosing and dying because of these drugs should get the message across to the fans that these drugs are not as “amazing” as the artists portray them to be.
Instead the fans should learn from the mistakes those artists made. Ultimately, rock and roll is still music and because of that they should be able to sing about whatever they want to sing about. The artists should want to send off a good message, but ultimately nobody should be able to censor what the lyrics are.The first amendment is the freedom of speech, and even though some of the songs of rock and roll send off bad messages to the fans, the government shouldn’t be able to control what singers can and cannot say. The lyrics are not putting anyone in dangers way, they just state opinions that the singer has. The songs may not have the best message in mind which and personally, think the artists should sing about something more meaningful and more appropriate for the fans but at the end of the day they should be allowed to sing whatever they wish.
