Rap and Country Cause Drug Abuse

(antiMusic) We learn something really interesting today. Two things actually. One is that universities use that small fortune you spend on tuition to fund asine studies that have no real benefit to humanity and we also learn that you have to be on drugs to get into popular country music or rap. Or at least you are more likely to encounter music about drinking and drugging if you listen to rap and country music than rock music. Who knew? If you listen to rap or country and are easily influenced you most likely aren't reading this or are too stoned to turn the computer on.

Researches at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine took time out of researching real medical issues or trying to cure diseases and wasted time and resources to look at the top 279 songs on the Billboard charts in 2005. Their mind-shattering discovery was that a third of the songs included references to alcohol and drug use. The bozo that headed this study, Dr. Brian Primack justified this worthless study by saying "Tobacco in movies, for example, is now known to lead to smoking. We started realizing adolescents are exposed to two and a half hours a day of music. What's in the music?"

According to Reuters, the study found that: "nearly 80 percent of rap songs mentioned substance use, followed by 37 percent of country music lyrics, 20 percent of R&B/hip-hop and 14 percent of rock songs. Only nine percent of pop songs referred to drug or alcohol use." And with all that good stuff it still doesn't improve the listen-ability of music but gives idiot professors another way to "blame" music for the ills of society while wasting money instead of realizing that people with certain lifestyles are drawn to music they can relate to. - More on this idiocy here
