    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.

    No

    Music isn't responsible for anything like that

    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.

    No.

    Statistically the highest suicide rate is for those that subscribe to country music
