No. No type of music can do that. Well, maybe AM pop makes me want to punch whoever invented auto-tune, but that's different. Auto-tune doesn't count as music.
Blaming music for violence is like blaming guns for violence, which is exactly like blaming matches for arson. Or blaming pencils for spelling mistakes.

I don't see Rockers running drive-bys, Rappers on the other hand......

People kill themselves for different reasons, but they're almost always compelled to do it for their own personal reasons. Listening to a song isn't going to make a person kill him or herself - that person was going to do it anyway. In each and every instance where people have tried to blame a song for driving a person to commit suicide, it's been determined that the song wasn't at fault. Normal, sane, rational, well-balanced individuals who don't have serious mental, emotional or psychological issues don't decide to take their own lives because of a song.

No, that's a myth spawned by paranoid parents. The same myths happened to jazz and 60s rock.

Yes, but so can religion and even cartoons ... it's not really the music.
