PostSubject: Columbine's influence on the media.   Tue Aug 25, 2015 2:17 pm

It kind of dawned on me how famous Columbine is today.

I started the day listening to Eminem, and came across a couple of Columbine references.

I have just been watching the Inbetweeners, and even they made a reference to Columbine.

I have also lately heard references to NBK in Family Guy, AHS (Murder House), and in many songs by artists like Tyler the Creator, Pumped up Kicks, LeATHERMOUTH, MM, and Jay-Z.

Ontop of that there are countless books written about Columbine, as well as many programs and films either about or based on the events. (Elephant, Zero Day, April Showers and many more).

Pretty amazing how much our society clings to a single event.

I had it all and I looked at it and I said 'this is a bigger jail than I just got out of'.

Marilyn Manson is quite a big example.
At the Smashing Pumpkins / Marilyn Manson co-headlining concert, Manson's set was when all hell broke loose. What stood out for me among the burning bibles and flashers was the backdrop; it featured the Rebel Hill memorial.
Not to mention 'The Nobodies'.

There was also this song from last year:

Lil Yatchy wasn't even two years old when the massacre happened.

Dude, tons of pop culture and art has Columbine to thank for. It's almost a genre now, this actual tragedy.

If you're so very good looking
Why do you sleep alone tonight?
I know because tonight is just like any other night
That's why you're on your own tonight
With your triumphs and your charms
While they are in each other's arms
Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
And as I climb into an empty bed
Oh well, enough said
