- Since the being of time people have been making and listening to music. Music has been considered the best way to express ourselves. The Bible even talks about how music was used to praise God. Music has been used for all type of things ranging from to getting a girl to notice guy, trying to get over a broken heart, or maybe losing a love one.
- Music censorship has been an ongoing issue in the US for the last fifty years or so. In 1951 radio stations banned Dottie O’Brians “Four or Five Times” and Dean Martins “Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am” because they thought that they were suggestive. Also during the fifties and sixties attempts were mad to censor R&B music.
- Society in general has always had its faults and glitches, some of which were remedied, others which will never be solved. Media, more specifically in the arts, have never been perfect and have always taken criticism throughout the history of time. In the last few decades or so though, censorship and music has gone hand in hand, one not being able to exist without the other.
- We ve all heard music. We ve all heard curse words. Yet, when the two are put together they cause controversy. Both music and curse words are forms of human expression. Music written with words that convey feelings and situations, and explicit words are words that essentially reinforce a statement or idea.
- Albums with explicit lyrics or content started having black and white parental advisories on them in 1994 (http://www.riaa.org/Parents-Advisory-4.cfm). Are these labels necessary? Is controversial music molding our society and causing teenagers to turn to drugs? Is censorship necessary to protect the youth of our nation.
- Listen little slut /Do as you are told. . . /Come with Daddy for me to put the gold. . . /All through my excrements you shall roam. . . /Bend up and smell my anal vapor. . . /Your face is my toilet paper. . . /On your face I leave a shit tower. . . (Zucchino 9).
- What is music censorship? Music censorship can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Basically it is the attempt or action taken by any agency to limit or curtail anything in music that a community may find offensive to its beliefs or values (college park: March 28).
- In a world in which acts of heinous violence, murder or crude and shocking behavior seem to be a normal occurrence, it may lead one to wonder what has put society onto this slippery slope. How did this type of behavior come to be so acceptable and in some cases glorifiable? A careful study of society may lead to multi media as being the main cause in this changing of ideals.
- Censorship is not always protected by the first amendment. Obscenity is just one of the action not protected by the first amendment. There are limitations on the right of free speech. ?The word ?censorship? means prior restraint of First Amendment rights by government.
- Before you can form an opinion on this, you must hear both sides of the argument on this much-debated topic. Some people believe that music should be censored so all audiences can hear it without it containing any controversial lyrics. Others believe it should not be censored and musical artists should be able to speak, sing, rap, or rhyme freely without anyone censoring them.
- Censorship affects our society in many different ways, it affects the music we listen to, the movies we watch, the books we read, and many other aspects of our everyday lives. Even though many might argue that censorship doesn t really have a place in a society that emphases freedom of speech and the freedom to express oneself, but censorship is an essential and needed part of our growing society, it s needed in the television industry, the Internet, and the music industry.
- Censorship “The song [Cop Killer] is fiction, not fact. At no point did I go out and say Let’s do it.’ I am singing in the first person as a character who is fed up with police brutality. I ain’t never killed no cop. I felt like it a lot of times. But I never did” -Rapper Ice-T, National Review, July 20, 1992.
- In our society today, some musicians and their music drain and plague the moral and spiritual well-being of the people. Censorship offers the necessary action that we must take to keep the world from becoming corrupt. The musicians lives are not examples for the children or the adults.
- Censorship in America today has gotten way out of hand. There always seems to be some holier than thou group speaking out as if they were representing the majority of Americans. These groups want to censor just about anything and everything we do. When it comes to watching television, reading a book or magazine, listening to music, or buying products, people should be able to make these decisions for themselves.
- However or whenever these attacks occur, they usually fall at least one of the following categories: Religion War & Peace (Violence) Sociology & Race Language Drugs Sex Inappropriate Adolescent Behaviour What is Obscenity? Clearly something hard to talk about constructively.
- The government is correct in trying to censor what is seen on television Censorship does not violate the first amendment and it prevents the harmful effects of graphic television Many people are in favor of censorship and it may be accomplished without violating the rights of broadcasters or any other individuals Censorship “refers to suppression of information, ideas, or artistic expression by anyone, whether government officials, church authorities, private pressure groups, or speakers, writers, and artists themselves” (Grolier, Inc ) Censorship can be a bad thing, and can also be positive F
- Another example of books distorting reality is drugs. Sometimes books can show people partying and having a good time while getting high on drugs. But usually books don’t show the troubles people face with an addiction. The same is with alcohol. It is rare to see a book that shows the depression alcoholics go through while trying to quit.
- Does this mean that the government owns the Internet, or is it no longer a tool limited by the powers that govern.
- (Tipper). On July seventh there was a major defeat of a second censorship bill in Louisiana that would have made it legal to sell stickered albums to minors. Officials from the RIAA, and the National Association of Recording Merchandise were very pleased.
