Sexism in rock & heavy metal music

  1. 1. Rock & Heavy metal
  2. 2. Bad Company - Anna I got a sweet little angel and I love her so She's there when I need her, she understands when I say go In the night, when she says "Hold me", it makes me feel so strong Living with her unfolds me, she gives me strength to carry on I don't need anyone else If I did I would be fooling myself Anna, Anna And I know if she left me, my world would turn cold She's the best little lady that a man could ever hold When I'm down, she knows what to say She clears my blindness away And in the night, she says "Hold me", it makes me feel so strong Oh, how cool! That's very convenient! I'm Muzzy, big Muzzy. Grrrrr WTF? Wow, are you sure she is not a robot?
  3. 3. Zarpa – Rosas y espinas (Roses and thorns) I met you, and I fell in love You became a part of my own And I marked my skin; Two hearts, a pact between you and me. And all of a sudden you say „no“ You say that you don't love me anymore Like a dagger stuck in my soul You give me pain You give me roses and thorns First you reject me and say „no“ to me You give me roses and thorns Because I no longer notices you, you made me notice (the hard way) I gave with great passion A sweet Angel, result of our love And I surrendered to you, woman Like a prey to its predator You are trapped by the temptation of living your own life You hurt me and with no compassion You are running away from me. Wait... Oh, oh... Uh? WTF? And it wasn't even her birthday! HOW DARE YOU?! - Passive agressiveness - Childdish behaviour - Myth of completeness - Possession That's nice, congrats!
