Quote# 38507

Rock music also does physical damage to you. Its beat goes against the natural rhythm of your heart when you listen to it. Your heart then gets confused and may stop beating. This can lead to heart attacks or strokes.

That just means you're rocking too hard.

Sure. I listen to metal every day, and my heart seems to be doing fine. What music would you like everyone to listen to then?

Bullshit *goes to listen to Hell by Disturbed*

This must be why so many old people die of heart attacks - old codgers listening to their scratchy old Elvis and Jerry Lewis records - and playing them too damn LOUD!

Dang whippersnappers. Harrumph.

This of course explains why there are no rock musicians over fifty left alive.

What's that you say?

Robert Plant?
Jimmy Page?
Mick Jagger?
Mick Fleetwood?
Annie Lennox?
Eric Clapton?
Grace Slick?

If that were true I'd have been dead decades ago.

I really don't think the sinoatrial node knows, what kind of music you're listening. It's totally autonomus pacemaker controlled by the parasympatethic and sympatethic nervous systems. It doesn't have ears.


EDIT: I lol'd to the part where the "heart gets confused" xD

It's true. I've been listening to various forms of rock since I was a child, and once high school rolled around and I started in with the heavy metal, why, I've died of heart attacks and strokes at least 3279084375024375028475 times!

"while they're going for the rockers they're ignoring us gheys"

at least until they bring up 'ghey' rockers or insist that anyone who listens to rock is 'ghey,' and you know it's inevitable.

I frequently listen to rock music, not dead yet. And I have a pre-existing heart condition.

In other words, bullshit.

I think you need to turn the volume down by a few tens of decibels.

(that said - really loud music can be used as a non-lethal area effect weapon. Of course, it doesn't matter what the pattern is as much as your ears overloading and your entire body vibrating.)

Your heart reacts to messages recieved through the body so when you exert yourself it and your breathing pick up to compensate, this is subconcious but reacts to fear, pain and even cold conditions.

Rock music (or what he's refering to here I think is the back beat, sometimes even called the hesitation heartbeat ) has, of course been connected to altering (and this is the important part) the normal at rest heartbeat. The science never once suggested it was harmful nor that it was only rock music that caused this effect.

The study only confirmed what was pretty much known, that music effects us physically and we may even synchronize ourselves to it's beat or rythm. The overall study suggests music developed out of our natural bodily rythms and explains why the urge to enjoy and produce music is inant in all humans.

Teenages are much more likely to go from rest to adrenialin high activity then adults and therefor (in most cases) prefer the faster, harder music than adults, it suits their biological state more. As one grows older they generally listen to slowe, steadier music perhaps even as a calming effect.

As I go back in my tape library I find much that I grew out of liking from my teens to 40 or now 55. Zeppelin, Floyd and the Beatles are still holding up but the bands that stayed in one vein of cadence bore the Hell out of me now. Even the fast stuff, because you have to be interested in it also or you just filter it out.

It's why people my age are lifetime Beatles fans I think : Because of the scope and cadence and music styles they incorporated they were more varied and wider than any other band. Some of their songs we didn't care for as kids, and skipped over, we found we liked years later, sometimes better than their hits. It's why by Rubber Soul days people in their 50s and older who hated the earlier pop Beatles found themselves liking some Beatles songs as the stuck in the 60s rock or Merseybeat kids started hating some of their material.
