Do you know about Hannah Bond?
If not, here's a few facts. She hanged herself at the age of 13, she was a fan of My Chemical Romance and a so-called Emo. After her death, the Daily Mail called the scene a „sinister cult“ and also said, it was MCR's and the scene's fault what happened, even some parents had the same opinion. Meanwhile, fans and especially Keerang defended both the scene and the band. As you can see the opinions on this case differ heavily.
Please answer the following questions.

1. Do you think that it was the fault of My Chemical Romance's lyrics, which talked about death very often? Why/ why not?
2. Do you think that those lyrics or the band itself romanticised death? Why/ why not?
3. Do you think that My Chemical Romance has a dangerous impact? Why/ why not?
4. In your opinion, was it the scene's fault that Hannah Bond killed herself? Why/ why not?
5. Does the emo scene romanticise death or suicide? Why/ why not?
6. Do you think the emo scene has a dangerous impact? Why/ why not?
7. Do you think that people who have thoughts of suicide are more likely to be attracted to rock or heavy metal or in this case, to My Chemical Romance? Why/ why not?
8. Do you think that people who have thoughts of suicide are more likely to be attracted to the scene of emo? Why/ why not?
9. Do you think that people who listen to rock or heavy metal or in this case, to My Chemical Romance, are more likely to have thoughts of suicide because of this music and its content? Why/ why not?
10. Do you think that people who are part of the Emo scene are more likely to have thoughts of suicide because of the scene's content? Why/ why not?

To be clear about one thing: My opinion doesn't play any role here. Everyone might think differently about Hannah Bond and the role MCR played there and still plays in the scene of Emo. I think there's no wrong or right of what you might answer. So please, state your own opinion and tell me your arguments.
