A guy hanged himself in the woods recently, and guess who's fault it is?

Slipknot's, apparently!

Why can't the media stop tying every suicide or murder to heavy music?  If he'd had Justin Bieber playing n his iPod, no one would have said a word about what he had been listening to.  But because it was metal, then the music must have had something to do with it!

Why are people so stupid, and continue to spread this idiocy?

People don't kill because a song told them to, nor do they kill themselves because a song told them to.  They killed or suicided because they have issues.  There's something wrong at home, something in their life that sucks, and they don't deal with it well.

Dani Filth from Cradle of Filth has a good opinion piece on this whole "blame metal music" thing that's still going on with the media.  Check it out here.
