MetadataShow full item record
Shortly, I applies genetic structuralism to formulate the lyrics into three steps. First, the data are categorized in accordance with the human facts, collective subject and the worldview. Next, the data are analyzed based on the social life of the Corey Taylor as the song lyrics writer as he is part of a certain community. The third is, analyzing the social and historical background of the literary works by concerning the conflicting ideologies. However, the band sets the implicit message on the lyrics to show their effort in alternating the worldview which far different from the common listener perspective. This research tries to find out the collision between the artist’s ideology and the listener worldview that emerged as the manifestation of long process within genetic structuralism. The repeated activities become social structure. The structure is manifested through the lyrics. Taylor’s reinforce the repeated of genetic structuralism form in Metals. The facts that Metal’s always apply rude words are strengthening in Taylor’s popular lyrics. Taylor carries the values that have been passed down through generations that life is hard and euphemism does not help. Therefore, it can be stated that the genetic structuralism is a research literature that links the literary structure between the structure of society through the world view or ideology being expressed. Thus, to understand the lyrics is not only to take a literal meaning of the word but to take the implied meaning that is generated from long history process. This shows the best understanding for the lyrics.
