Scheel, Karen R.; Westefeld, John S.
Adolescence, v34 n134 p253-73 Sum 1999
Investigates the relationship between preference for heavy metal music and vulnerability to suicide among high school students. Results indicate that preference for heavy metal music among adolescents may be sign of increased suicidal vulnerability, but also suggests that the source of the problem may lie more in personal and familial characteristics than in any direct effect of the music.
