Because teenagers are young and impressionable. Especially female teenagers. Most women in general follow the crowd and other women for that matter. Young men follow the young women so teenagers general follow the same wave length. To answer you question I'll put it like this. Young girls listen to the bad music because it's bad and it's wrong. Therefor it seems exciting. The young guys listen to it because they want to be like those groups and act like they're bad so they can attract girls in their own age group. Don't be fooled. The bad boy image always works. People want what they can't have.

What music influences people?

AnswerIn my opinion that entirely depends on the person. I know many people who are greatly inspired/ influenced by classical music where to others it is meaningless. It's a matter of opinion. AnswerAny kind of music! This is a completely subjective question. You could ask 100 different people and get 100 different answers. Depends on the person, their personality, their family/friend influences, their IQ, even gender or nationality/geography, or whatever mood they happen to be in on any given day.Also depends on how you are trying to influence them. Or what you are trying to influence them to do. Will heavy metal make them sleep? Will classical make them want to throw a keg party? Will rap make them cry? Will John Denver make them violent? Will Black Sabbath make them want to pray? Probably no to all of these questions.....but I think you get the point by now.AnswerAll music influences people!! However, different types of music influence them in different ways. Also, each person is influenced differently by it. People don't realize how important music can be. They are too worried about, "oh is it safe to listen to?" I think the amount of teenagers influenced by sex music are one in a billion. Kids need music.Answer"Music soothes the savage beast", while actually a misquote, is so true: Plants and animals respond in various ways to music of various types, as do we.
