On the Slovak Rock Songs’ Lyrics

In recent years, the quality of the contemporary songs’ lyrics has been affected by the massive pop culture influence predominantly from English-speaking countries. This survey-based study tries to identify the most popular Slovak rock songs and to determine if their lyrics play a role in the musical preferences of young people in Slovakia. According to the survey results, the songs by the rock groups Horkýže Slíže and Iné Kafe seem to be the most popular. The outcomes indicate that the songs’ lyrics are relevant to the Slovak survey participants, and that the aspect most appreciated in lyrics is their shocking and bizarre meaning.
