1175 words - 5 pages

In today's society the teenager has had more rights than ever before, along with these rights comes responsibility, independence and good judgement. All of those mentioned have been destroyed in many teenagers lives by these 'Rock Stars'. The modern teenager is exposed to many different things that may affect their lives as they choose to live it, non quite as strong of a force than the effect of music, it is the teens outlet to expression, rebellion and popularity all of which are very important to the average teenager, but often in cases the teen who is trying to conform becomes subject to the 'Rock Star's' manipulation, and that is when obsession kicks in. Then not only is the teenager subject to power corruption but so is the 'rock star'. This is the important thing to remember when dealing with the subject at hand.There are many reasons why teenagers cling to 'rock stars', but there are always more popular reasons than others. One main reason that this occurs is because of the accessibility of what these 'rock stars' are publishing. Think of all the things that teenagers have in front of them day-in, day-out; radio, television, clothes of peers etc. All of which are covered with popular musicians. So if they are so accessible then most people are aware of this so they start to pay attention to it, they see these extravagant people with no boundaries, limits or regulations. Most of modern 'rock stars' have a catch something that stands out from the rest which leads to peoples attention. Also most 'rock stars' these days have a relationship with the teens, the teens see themselves (or what they want to call themselves) in the 'rock stars' presentation of their selves, but they take it to extremes so the teens say 'hey they are like me but better' so it becomes an obsession to conform. These are some reasons why teens are obsessed by 'rock stars'.Out of all the different age groups on this planet why do teens seem to be the only onesPage -2-who do this? Well teenagers have a great amount of time to read so much into things. Its the first age in most peoples lives where real independence is given, so they are desperate for something new to be controlled by. The one main reason why teens are the only age group subject to the manipulation of 'rock stars' is because most of these 'rock stars' are still in a teenage state of mind, so the real teenagers are already adapted to the environment that the 'rockstars' make for themselves.Some bands are well known just for how they acquire the liking of teenagers, they have absolutely no respect from any other age group but they have millions of following teenagers. The biggest one I can think of (in modern music) would be Nirvana. Their lead singer Kurt Cobain was the creator of this whole 'grunge' thing that took the world by storm a couple of years ago(baggy ripped jeans, plaid, easy repetitious music). Kurt Cobain was basically to be a savour to all teens, he related every thing he wrote to when he was...
