Compared to traditional folk music with its references to murder, poverty, lust, adultery, idolatry, rape, drunkeness, greed, some other styles pale. It has more to do with how such things are referenced, whether they're glorified or not, whether they're expressed with regret or not, and whether it's narrative in first or third person, etc.
Accept2...Please don't think that I was implying that people shouldn't be free to sing what they want or whether I/we/society/whomever agrees, I was simply intending to say that there are distinctly different ways of expressing violence/emotion/threats in lyric and music.
For what it's worth, I don't feel threatened by any of it.
