The Relationship between Heavy Metal and Rap Music and Adolescent Turmoil: Real or Artifact?
Took, Kevin J.; Weiss, David S.
Adolescence, v29 n115 p613-21 Fall 1994
Investigated association between 87 adolescents' music preferences and psychosocial turmoil. Adolescents who preferred heavy metal and rap music had higher incidence of below-average school grades, school behavior problems, sexual activity, drug and alcohol use, and arrests. When gender was controlled, only below-average school grades and history of counseling in elementary school for school problems remained significant. (Author/NB)
