OK, so. We've all seen it. Someone who, personally, condemns rock or other genres of music as being immoral or whatnot. Or course, everyone has a right to shun whatever form of music or other entertainment they choose, but this is one that's always confused me.
See, I can understand why in general. Rock is often known for degrading or oversexual lyrics, and for musicians who lead highly immoral lives. However, I've always been confused in, wouldn't that be more like, shunning particular songs or artists, rather than an entire genre? because there are rock or pop artists who don't sing about vulgar things, and artists from metal opera and country who could be singing about very inappropriate things. Yet it's always just rock that is condemned. :shrug:
Now, I'm not that big on rock. I like a few classic rock songs, but I don't have one particular genre I stick to. I like a little of everything, as long as it isn't filthy or talking about thugs and drugs and...you get the idea. And, my music collection consists of a lot of inspiring, clean, beautiful songs that aren't expressively Christian, from rock, pop, country, jazz...
So anyway, my point is, why do we focus on the immorality of one genre, when not all song that are rock are immoral, and not all songs that are immoral are rock? :shrug:
