Murder Ballad

I hate rap because it is morally degrading to our society, and the people that live in it, namely today’s youth...Rap teaches kids that violence is okay. It is mentioned so frequently, and so off-hand, that it seems like it is no big deal...

- from Rap: How it's Ruining Today's Youth and Screwing Up America on the recently hackedRepublicanVoices.org.

The times, they are a' changin'?

Carolina Buddies - The Murder of the Lawson Family (mp3)

From People Take Warning!: Murder Ballads & Disaster Songs 1913-1938.
