    What a stupid study. It distinguishes between musical genres but treats all delinquency as the same.
    In fact, musical genres and their youth movements all adopt different kinds of juvenile delinquency. Their choice of childish bad behaviour is one way of telling them apart.

    Jazz: Smoking, talking slang.
    Rock & Roll: Slashing cinema seats, hanging around on street corners bullying people.
    Mods: Staying up late, fighting with other kids.
    Rock/ Hippies: Looking scruffy, laying about being idle.
    Punk: Bad language, spitting.
    Hip-Hop: Writing on the walls, calling each other names
    Rave: Milling about in large groups and playing music really loud.
    Emo: Moping, sulking.

    As the scene, and its followers, grow older they tend to become more law-abiding, although this isn´t always the case. For example, mods moved on to dressing in women´s clothes or setting up dodgy Arthur Daley-type record companies/schmutter emporiums; hippies proved adept at corporate rape and pillage and hip-hop turned to guns and being rude to girls.

      Aspects of Musical Deviancy 101. Course Instructor: babycart.

      After an introductory lecture, subcultural reading and listening materials are assigned to students, who must then attend each seminar enacting a distinctive subculture's deviant behaviours. For example, for Week 5 (Punk), students are asked to view the Sex Pistol's Bill Grundy interview and play Hurry Up Harry by Sham 69 a hundred times. In class they look at pictures of Milton Keynes in 1977 and are tasked by the instructor to pierce each other's ears using only a box of matches and a Slaughter & The Dogs badge.

        Week 6:Rap: Night-time art excursion to train depot, viewing of legendary footage of Fat Boys beatboxing while simultaneously eating a Big Mac on the Tube, insults seminar in which students employ module vocabulary such as "skeeze."
        WARNING: INSTANCES OF PLAGIARISM IN STUDENTS WORK WILL BE SEVERELY REPRIMANDED BY THE COURSE LEADER OVER A LOOP OF THE 900 NUMBER.

          Crap. So do I now have to listen to ska or punk to be edgy?
