I have a friend who's really into Rock and Metal music. A lot of the music I see him post online, has names that seem to worship demons or Satanic beings. So, I wanted to know if the idea behind Rock music, is mainly to talk about dark or sort of 'evil' things like that. If that's true, why is it so?
Rock was originally created as a way of expression of youth, rebellion and protest, denial and revision of the moral and material values of the world.
Throughout its history, rock has shown the unsolvable eternal dilemma of fathers and children. As a means of self-expression of the young generation, rock in the eyes of the older generation looks only like children's entertainment, sometimes dangerous and destructive.
And the branch of rock towards Satanism is already as a separate branch of style. To the original rock, this has no relation, only a heavy sound.
