A Virginia high school student, convinced that hard-rock, heavy-metal music is bad for the brain, conducted an experiment with mice in a maze. He had to cut his project short because all the mice exposed to hard-rock killed each other, but none of the "classical" mice did. Sword of the Lord editor Dr. Shelton Smith says rock music does kill. He says: "It kills the senses and sensibility. It kills spirituality. It kills morals. It kills incentive. It indeed has caused kids to commit suicide and, in [many] cases, murder as well."

Comment-- Steve Van Nattan: I recall a number of years ago hearing that dairymen do NOT play rock music in a dairy barn when milking cows. Quieter music, or classical, gives the best results.
