Christian music is often used as a comfort cushion and re-enforcement in their beliefs. Bands like Rage Against the Machine and Tool have risen to the level of a political force by betraying their views on political situations in their music. “It is by no coincidence that The Dead, Jay-Z, and Bruce Springiness all held concerts for President-elect Barack Obama, before he was elected” (Teeter Jones). Music can affect the way see a candidate like a propaganda poster. “We tend to listen to music that reflects our moods or emotions” (Nathan Files). Listening to upbeat and energetic music can help you get out of a sad mood.
When people are feeling down, they usually listen to slow and moving music because they feel as though they can relate. Music can easily alter your feelings, sway the views on an election, and influence people’s behavior through religion. Music is an incredibly powerful tool like a toothbrush when brushing your teeth.
