Rock Music and Korean Adolescent's Antisocial Behavior.
Kim, Inkyung; Kwak, Keumjoo; Chang, Geunyoung; Yang, Jinyoung
The relationship between rock music preference and antisocial behavior among Korean adolescents was examined. The Korean versions of the Sensation Seeking Scale and the Antisocial Behavior Checklist were used to measure sensation seeking motivation and delinquency. Adolescents (N=1,079) were categorized as "rock/metal,""dance," or "ballad" based on their preference in music. In addition, rock band or fan club members were sampled as "rock band" (N=79). Rock band and rock/metal groups were significantly higher on both scales than any other group. However, ANCOVA revealed no differences in antisocial behavior among music preference group when sensation-seeking motivation is controlled. This means that sensation-seeking motivation should be considered a mediating factor. This study supports the generally accepted idea that rock music can influence adolescents' antisocial behavior.
