Popular Music Subcultures as Religion
Reason of Sylvan believesThe Sylvan conducted research on four popular music subcultures, namely, grateful dead and deadheads, rave and electronic dance, rap and hip-hop, and heavy metal and metal heads. The research is conducting through personal interviews and observations outside the music events. The Sylvan observes that the music has migrated from the religions which are determined by analyzing the material to find out the nuances, dynamics, and contradictions of subcultures. The religion is migrated to musical subcultures for example In America the religious is far diffused throughout the culture and according to the traditional institutionalized religious belief and practices the relation of religion has been done from the church to the nightclubs, music festivals,streets, concert coliseums. The relocation to the nightclubs comprises of oscillation of secularistsweekly to the rite and rituals on the night function of Friday and Saturday. Sylvan’s thesisI totally agree with the Sylvan’s thesis related to the religiosity of popular music because according to the research conducted by Sylvan includes communal ceremony, philosophy, worldview, code of living, ritual activity, social culture, cultural identity, crucially and sense of belonging. The popular culture has become a new arena for expressing the religion. The popular culture is transmitted to the popular music such as electronic instrumentation, corporate marketing, digital recordings, home stereo technology, and individual way of receiving the music(Bates et al., 2016).
