Pleasure is not bad or banned.
But it is not the answer.
The key to pleasure is moderation.
Rock bands push indulgence and excess.
They are uncompromising in their message.
"Just have a good time."
"Indulge in sin and fun."
But their approach will get you nowhere.
It leads to burn-out and emptiness.
And may even lead to suicide.
So don't listen to rock music's anthems of excess.
Then you will be safe.
(N.B. The motto of the Greek god Apollo was: All things in moderation.)
