Summary

Summary

In the fifteen years since Tipper Gore and Frank Zappa feuded over raunchy lyrics, the furious but confused debate over rock music's effect on character has gone nowhere. Neither side appreciates the true power of music or is willing to examine its own musical tastes. Shattering the assumptions of rock's critics and defenders alike, Carson Holloway shows that music is both more dangerous and more beneficial than we think.
-- Why do conservatives and liberals agree about music?
-- Why do young people listen to rock music?
-- Is music simply entertainment, or something more important?
