Abstract

This short article suggests that pressure groups do more harm than good when they attempt to vilify certain forms of musical expression. By denouncing music, they lend certain credibility to it. By seeking censorship, pressure groups come off as anti-American zealots bent on eroding our right to free speech.

Keywords: gangsta rap, pressure groups
