Study Says Psychopaths Love Rap Music

Not only is this the MOST RACIST study I ever heard of, I completely disagree with it.

I hate rap, and if I heard it enough it would probably turn me into a psychopath.

Newser-

 In news certain to start a whole new round of arguments at record stores (were record stores still a thing), researchers at New York University say the songs you like could give you away as a psychopath… Researchers had 200 people already scored on the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale listen to 260 songs. According to the New York Daily News, some of the songs were released as early as the 1940s and all were picked for being very recognizable. Researchers found enjoyment of 30 of the songs, including “Lose Yourself” by Eminem and “No Diggity” by Blackstreet*, was predictive of psychopathy.

Lead researcher Pascal Wallisch refused to name the other songs used in the study for fear of tainting future research. But while some media outlets are reporting the findings as a condemnation of rap or R&B, Wallisch says that’s not the case. “This study has nothing to do with rap music,” he says. “It’s more song-specific and not genre-specific.” However, he’s not sure what it is about certain songs that seem to attract psychopaths. “It may be the stimulation in the song. We don’t know,” he tells Newsweek. Wallisch also warns against taking the results too seriously yet. It was a small, unpublished study and much more research is needed before definite conclusions can be drawn.

  1. Yes, it’s weird. When I listen to Rammstein I want to drink German beer and look at big boops!!! I swear!!!

    Rap? I keeeeel YOU!

  2. Ever been fueling up when some asshole pull up with 10K worth of amps and speakers, opens their doors and cranks the RAP? I’ve done this at least 10 times, “Hey asshole, what make you think the rest of us here want to hear that jungle shit? Turn it off”. They always complied.
    One day I’m fueling up nest to an attorney buddy, who I have used, and it happened. After I got through yelling at the offenders my attorney buddy tells me “in California what you just did qualifies as assault”. I don’t do it anymore.

  3. Read past the title?

  4. Brad, doesn’t it seem like the sorry sob playing the rap music is the one that’s guilty of assault? We sure have things screwed up nowadays.

  5. “Not only is this the MOST RACIST study I ever heard of, I completely disagree with it.

    Not getting it. 98% of mass murders are white. Psychopaths. That’s true. You can’t argue that data. All Rap music abusers?

  6. I like a lot of different kinds of music, but the key word there is music.
    I can’t take the monotony of most rap, especially with all that jacked up bass. It’s like Black Polka, I just can’t take it, but it’s the words and the message that I really find offensive.
    However I will say that when rap is woven into good music, like something Quincy Jones would do, it can be pretty good.

  7. Try using a canned air horn when they blast that shit out of their cars. They can’t call that assault if its noise right back at them.

  8. I would Imagine Psychopaths get off on anything with a hard driven , tunnel vision type of noise…The violent lyrics are just a bonus !!!

  9. Amid the hair metal of the late 80s / early 90s, I turned to rap and hip-hop. Don’t be too judgey. What? A young guy should think that the acme of malehood is teasing your hair to the moon, putting on more lipstick than whore, and wearing womens panties over your parachute pants?

    Nope.

    Rap really changed when it turned from party music to gangster.

    Then, the paradox was formed. I rape, I murder, I kill, I carjack, I sell drugs.

    But what you pull me over for officer man, I ain’t do nuttin’.

  10. People who listen to c-rap are 51 TIMES more likely to shoot someone than whites.

    Wiggers and blacks who listened to Perry Como were too small a sample.

  11. Bongopoofter, I can’t stand Pat Boone or his music. He may not be as bad as crap or hip hop music but he still sucks. How Mr. Whitebread was 2nd to Elvis in the 50’s I’ll never know. Elvis was also over rated as well. And he was a lousy actor too, Journey To The Center Of The Earth being a prime example

  12. Brad; We used to get a lot of that on weekends when the ear busting “bullies” would drive through on their way to the mountains. (Bullies is what they are.) Complaints to the Hwy Patrol and our local sheriff stopped 90% of it.
    If it’s at the right volume it physically makes my heart pound like it’s going to burst. I long for the old west days and lynchings.

  13. Rap, gangsta, hip hop etc. is not music.
    It is a symptom, sad evidence of the corrosion of society.

    Young white kids who listen to it should be ashamed.
