Post Rap music poisoning today's youth

Submitted for your consideration:

Rap music is ruining today's youth. The lyrics, both explicit and implied, have become entrenched into the minds of today's youth. This poisoning is not limited to the barrio, but also the suburbs. No one is safe. Rap has even infiltrated motorcycle culture. I would like to enter into evidence Exhibit A, lyrics from the famous rapper Soulja Boy Tellem (aka Soulja Boy):

Crank Dat (Superman)

Soulja Boy off in this oh
Watch me crank it, watch me roll
Watch me crank dat, Soulja Boy
Then Superman dat oh

Now watch me you
(Crank dat, Soulja Boy)
Now watch me you
(Crank dat, Soulja Boy)

Soulja Boy off in this oh
Watch me crank it, watch me roll
Watch me crank dat, Soulja Boy
Then Superman dat oh


Now, Exhibit B, video proof of how these lyrics infiltrate society as a whole:

YouTube - Suzuki SV 650 crash

I rest my case.

Um, I think he's refering to the "Superman" move that extreme MX riders do when they grab the subframe of the bike 70 feet in the air, extend their arms and float along behind it,like when Superman flys. Not some squid on a new SV650 hopped up on cough syrup trying to impress other squids. Rap is good stuff, like take this easy e lyric as an excellen example:

"Cruisin down the street in my six-fo'
Jockin the *****es, slappin the hoes
Went to the park to get the scoop
Knuckleheads out there cold shootin some hoops.."

Like classic poetry. Someday it will rank right up there with Emily ****enson & John Greenleaf Whittier, not to mention Chuacer or Shakespear.

When I was a kid my mother was outraged when she found out I was listening to Slayer. All of those Catholic school tuition payments down the drain.

"Crack Rock Steady,
are you ready to stop
the rotten blue menace?
Let's go kill us a cop.
Crack Rock Steady,
are you ready?
Living above the law!

Po' little lice, the po' little screws,
the whitest gang crew, the hated boys in blue.
Like scabei on the street, they infest the beat,
****ing my life but I won't admit defeat to them!
Above the law, above the law come now,
No copper will be safe till they are dead and done now.
Let's lay em down low, let's hang em up high,
Let's take all of these piggies, and have them crucified!

Hardcore, rugged and raw,
on the streets of New York, we live above the ****ing law.
It don't matter the color of your skin,
as long as you not scandalous, commit no sin to me,
or my tribe.
Would not be wise.
Time to smell the ganja, open up your ****ing eyes.
Step back, keep your attitude in check,
and give the crack rock steady much respect.

Don't ya know that satan is the man?
So listen very close because we got a little plan:
We're gonna have to execute some rich important people,
gonna burn down all the churches and topple all the steeples.
See a frown? turn that cross upside down.
Grab a gun or baseball bat, let's go to ****ing town!
Let's kill the police, I'll be saying little more,
But when the cops come to your door,
don't forget the choice is yours!

Riot sound, police come round,
With the bass and drum we knock 'em down,
Chop 'em up with the riffs an' in the stew,
Drinkin' pot liquor made of poison glue,
Pick it up!
Someone way up livin' in those high-rise castles
Wishing with the hope that I lick their assholes
with the beat we burn down those big brass doors,
Here we go!
Rocksteady!"

Choking victim - "Crack RockSteady"

Choking Victim is a someone dead ska band from the late 90s early 2000s. I like their music, lyrics not so much.

Then again, remember not all modern music is bad. and I'll make an effort to mention this band anytime.

Here's to Life by Streetlight Manifesto
"How did Camus really die that night?
Were they right?
When he died was it really his time?
Or was it suicide?
And Holden Caulfield is a friend of mine
We go drinking from time to time
and I find, it gets harder every time

Back Off!
You're out on the street again
Don't you stop!
Did you know you couldn't swim?
Back Off!
You're out on the street again
I'm not going to play if there ain't no way I'll win!

Hemingway never seemed to mind the banalities of a normal life
and I find, it gets harder every time
So he aimed the shotgun into the blue
Placed his face in between the two
and sighed, "Here's To Life!"

Back Off!
You're out on the street again
Don't you stop!
Did you know you couldn't swim?
Back Off!
You're out on the street again
I'm not going to play if there ain't no way I'll win!

Hey there Salinger, What did you do?
Just when the world was looking at you
To write anything, that meant anything
You told us you were through
And it's been years since you passed away
but I see no plaque, and I see no grave.
And I can't help believing, you wanted it that way.

Vincent Van Gogh, Why do you weep?
You were on your way to heaven, but the road was steep
And who was there to break your fall?
We're guilty, One and All

And I don't know much, but I do know this
With a golden heart, comes a rebel fist
But I can't help agreeing with those that would not quit.

And it makes me sick when I think of it
All my heroes could not live with this
and I hope you rest in peace
Because with us, You never did!
And K.D.C., you were much too young!
And you changed my life!
But I draw the line at suicide!
Here's To Life!!"

Its about Thomas Kalnoky (Guitarist and singer) and his artistic heros fall from grace into eventual suicide or self destruction.

Streetlight manifesto - A Moment of Silence
"A moment of silence, please, for those who never get the chance
They show up to the party, but they're never asked to dance
The losers, the liars, the bastards, the thieves
The cynicists, the pessimists, and those that don't believe in nothing

I never met a loser that I didn't see eye-to-eye with, I declare
I stare into your eyes
But you look right past me into the air
What's it like to stand in your shoes?
To have never felt the belt of somebody's abuse?
I take the bottle and I tip it for all my heroes that have passed
Alas, you have left us, but your stories they will last
Uninspired by the recruiting call
Independent we stand
Independent we fall

So tell me: how long do you think you can go before you lose it all?
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control
At some point, but I let it go and lost my soul
Sit tight, but the revolution's years away
I'm losing faith and I'm running low on things to say
So, I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite
Oh! To have died that night, I realized it wouldn't last
Our days were numbered and the reaper tipped the hourglass
The final mayday of our sinking ship had come and passed
Oh! To the west, you don't know what it is you're running from
And everybody's laughing loud
Your last chance to make your mother and your father proud

Oh, oh, oh...

A moment of silence, please, for those who never get the chance
They show up to the party, but they're never asked to dance
The losers, the liars, the bastards, the thieves
The cynicists, the pessimists, and those that don't believe in nothing

They said "a pox,
Upon your house,
Upon your family and everyone you knew
And everyone you'll ever meet"
I bet they think we wish we joined when we could
But we do what we want, we don't do what we should
Now, everybody's laughing, 'cause they're thinking they're in on something I don't get
Don't forget
I connect and I read every word you said
Like a child who believes he was wronged
If you hate me so much, then stop singing my songs

So tell me: how long do you think you can go before you lose it all?
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control
At some point, but I let it go and lost my soul
Sit tight, but the revolution's years away
I'm losing faith and I'm running low on things to say
So, I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite
Oh! To have died that night, I realized it wouldn't last
Our days were numbered and the reaper tipped the hourglass
The final mayday of our sinking ship had come and passed
Oh! To the west, you don't know what it is you're running from
And everybody's laughing loud
Your last chance to make your mother and your father proud"

Followed by: Streetlight manifesto - Moment of Violence
"I never did lose a battle,
but I'm feeling further from the end of war.
Deplored,
ignored,
and rarely ever self assured.
Why does it seem the ones who have everything have nothing inside?
nothing inside

I don't sleep anymore,
I gave it up,
because what we do is not enough,
and now they're calling out our bluffs.
Have you done a single thing for someone else?
Or do you take, take, take, until your belly is stuffed?

How long do you think you can go before you lose it all?
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control,
at some point, but I let it go and lost my soul.
Sit tight for the revolution's years away.
I'm losing faith and I'm running low on things to say.
So, I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate,
the tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite.
Oh! to have died that night, I realized it wouldn't last.
Our days were numbered and the reaper tipped the hourglass,
the final mayday of our sinking ship had come at last.
Oh! to the west, you don't know what it is you're running from,
but everybody's laughing loud,
your last chance to make your mother and father proud."

Those are all songs off of their first album and this is off their new album

Streetlight manifesto - Somewhere in the Between

"You were gone when we found you
You were practically surrounded, you were trapped
But the opposition stalled, their blood ran cold
When they saw the look of love in your eyes

Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of the plan
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the alpha, omega, beginning and the end
And we all just idolize the dead

So you were born, and that was a good day
Someday you'll die, and that is a shame
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
And nothing and no one will ever take that away

You had a love and that love had you
And nothing mattered, you were fine
And some will complain, they're just bitter, what a shame
They know that loving and losing is better than nothing at all

Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of our path
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the anthem, the slogan, the summary of events
And we all just idealize the past

So you were born, and that was a good day
Someday you'll die, and that is a shame
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
And nothing and no one will ever take that away

Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of the plan
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the alpha, omega, beginning and the end
And we all just idolize the dead

So you were born, and that was a good day
Someday you'll die, and that is a shame
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
And nothing and no one will ever take that away

And someday soon my friends, this ride will come to an end
But we can't just get in line again"

or... Streetlight Manifesto - Down, Down, Down to Mephisto's Cafe

"If I were you, I would take this as a sign
Believe it's true, we were never meant to fly
And I owe you, I know you more than anyone alive
And I will not let go

They will not remember this song
No matter what we do we'll be wrong
They will not remember this song
No matter what we do we'll be wrong

I can't seem to see the seal we're breaking
I can't seem to see the seal we broke
I refuse to recognize your views
Someone shouted "Everything's for nothing"
Somebody shouted, "All is lost"
But I can't buy that nonsense too

Way back when the prophecies began
Do you think they really had a master plan
Or were they merely writing fables, stories?
I don't know but it has occurred to me
The punishment that they threaten constantly
It's only real if they could just convince me

We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
Down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe (We're going down)
And the gears will spin and the sinners sin, but at least we'll give them hell
And the righteous few will spit on you, so bid them all farewell
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
We're going down (Right?) (Right!)

So **** the flocks of sheep that keep amassing masses
Asses being led so far astray
And I won't claim to believe the things I read
Black books or agenda magazine
I'd rather see in shades of gray

If I were you, I would take this as a sign
Believe it's true, we were never meant to fly

And I knew you when you were you
Before they twisted all your views
Before you came unglued

We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
Down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe (We're going down)
And the gears will spin and the sinners sin, but at least we'll give them hell
And the righteous few will spit on you, so bid them all farewell
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
We're going down (Right?) (Right!)

Now everybody's telling taller tales
And I don't know who to believe
Ok, if your father really loves you more
What about the other families?

Finally, I met a man with kindness in his eye and fire in his heart
He said you'll never have to choose a side
It's rewarding but oh, the road is hard....

They broke him wide open
Like a dam and a cork that's holding everything inside
You can play the role of rebel
Just be sure to know your wrong from right

I remember it was years ago
You know I still count the days
You and I had quite a ways to go
I never once heard you complain
And you said

Don't crack, because you might not make it back
And if you do you will be alone and you can't live like that
Well I know when I'm wrong and I sure as hell ain't wrong this time

We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
Down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe (We're going down)
And the gears will spin and the sinners sin, but at least we'll give them hell
And the righteous few will spit on you, so bid them all farewell
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
We're going down (Right?) (Right!)"

Not everything is bad today, I really don't like rap music but it seems like alot of people like to lump all modern music in with that crap and things like Choking Victim.
