Don't Blame The Music
- Me, Myself, and I
- Well, recently, as many of you probably know, an article was posted in the Daily Mail newspaper blaming Emo music and My Chemical Romance in particular for a young girls death.
And I thought WTF.
Then this reminded me of when Marilyn Manson got blamed for Columbine, which then reminded me of the news program which told of the 'dangers of the Emo/ goth culture'
MUSIC IS NOT TO BLAME!!!
The media just seems to need to find someone to blame, other than looking at how they portray things themselves.
I thought of how much music means to me and many others and I got really angry.
So please join this group to spread the message that music is not to blame'

''The inquest was told Hannah had not used drugs or alcohol before her death but Vanessa Everett, her head teacher at Mascalls School, said self-harm had become commonplace among other Emo fans.
Recording a verdict of suicide, Mr Sykes said: "The Emo overtones concerning death and associating it with glamour I find very disturbing."
•The Emo phenomenon began in the U.S. in the 1980s. It is a largely teenage trend and is characterised by depression, self-injury and suicide.
Followers wear tight jeans with studded belts and wristbands. Their hair is dyed black and worn in long fringes to obscure their faces.
Emo - from the word emotional - is a reference to the angst-filled lyrics and melancholy themes of the rock music central to the culture.
One of the foremost of these "suicide cult" bands is My Chemical Romance, from New Jersey.
Their first single, Welcome to the Black Parade, from the album The Black Parade, was released in 2006 and became a huge hit, going to number one in Britain.
The concept album follows the story of a character called The Patient, who dies of cancer.
The Black Parade is a nickname for the place where Emo fans believe they will go when they die. ''
From The Daily Mail
1. RIP Hannah
2. What a load of rubbish, it is clear that they haven't done any research on the issue. It really p's me off that they use My Chemical Romance's name in this article and that they say they are a 'Suicide Cult Band', when clearly they have helped many people through so much.
3. ARGH. I'm not buying the Daily Mail again if this is the amount of research they do on their stories.
