for heavy metal/punk/hard rock.

I mean, isn't that form of music as anti-social, anti-establishment and anti-life as "gangsta" hiphop is?

the author of this tried to excuse his/her singling out of hiphop by saying other societal poisons such as the sorpranos don't play a much of a role in peoples lives and the shaping of their identites but the fact is that the Ozzy Osbourne types with songs like "Suicide Solution" do play as much of a role in the lives of impressionable self-detrimental suburban white teenagers as hiphop does. this isn't a "everybody does it" thing because I don't excuse the idiocy in hiphop either. I don't support it in record stores and I turn when I see wack ass or just foolish videos. but this is hiphop shit really IS just a reflection of the larger american society. unfournately (as with every problem) when the country as a whole gets the cold.. we (Black people) get pneumonia.
