I thought we moved beyond the Heavy Metal Causes Crime Meme

Seriously, can we give up the 'heavy metal makes people do bad things' meme. I thought such a notion went out the window 20 years ago. Drowning Pool responds to allegations that their music had any influence on AZ shooter and it didn't, at least we have no evidence that it did. Drowning Pool says the song is about the mosh pit.

If music is supposed to make young people do things they normally wouldn't do, then why is it that when I was growing up every time I played Barry White or Marvin Gaye for girls they didn't jump into bed with me?
