Heavy Metal: A Cultural Sociology
Lexington Books, 1991 - 331 sidor
Few forms of music elicit such strong reactions as does heavy metal. Embraced by millions of fans, it has also attracted a chorus of critics, who have denounced it as a corrupter of youth -- even blamed it for tragedies like the murders at Littleton. Deena Weinstein argues that these fears stem from a deep misunderstanding of the energetic, rebellious culture of metal, which she analyzes, explains, and defends. The music and its makers, its fans, its dress code, its lyrics -- she interprets all aspects of the metal world, and in the process unravels the myths, misconceptions, and truths about an irreverent subculture that has endured and evolved for twenty years.
