    Can music have subliminal messages?

    Just thinking, a lot of preachers and politicians (Tipper Gore, may she burn in hell) blame rock and rap for telling kids to do things like kill people, steal, have sex, deal drugs, etc. Some even say that some artists, like Marilyn Manson and Judas Priest, have subliminal messages in their songs that intentionally brainwash people to do evil things. What do you guys think? Personally, I think it's mostly bullshit. If your mind is so weak that it can be influenced by a simple form of entertainment like music, then you're fucked anyway. If you spent your entire life listening to the same thing though, maybe you might show a slightly higher chance of doing that certain thing.

    In my eyes it's the same deal as movies and video games "influencing" young children. Explicit lyric albums have warnings on the covers and if they are ignored, then whatever.

    Really what Skype said there. If the child thinks he won't be brain-washed and can think for himself and not let a fucking song do it for him then it's the child's choice. There are like skype said, labels to warn you about the age limit and genre. If you ignore the label, it's the person's damn problem for not comprehending.

    That's stupid... I listened to rap, and rock all my life. Mostly all their songs are explicit, but look at me.. Im not flaming or posting adult content.

    I've listened to Death metal, Metalcore, Hard rock and rap.

    and I just love to chop off peoples heads and rape small animals and deal 4 million dollars worth of drugs every damn day.

    Lol to that . I don't believe in it, just wanted to see other people's opinions on it. There could be a chance that you would be more likely to think something if you listened to the same message since birth, but probably not. I listen to death metal too, but I don't go down to the sewers at night and sacrifice virgins for satan.

    I agree with this. Music won't exactly brain wash you, but it can definitely influence the way you act, if you're passionate enough about it.

    I'm sure half the women in America are influenced by Lady Gaga to dress like an idiot.
