Young people have a tendency to imbue popular culture with meanings that it does not inherently possess. In my youth, the band The Moody Blues was a particularly popular target for such allegations of deep meaning, enough so that one member who wrote many of their songs, Justin Hayward, wrote a song entitled "I'm Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band." Young people did this with the metal band System of a Down in the 90s and the first decade of this century, and in the video of their performance at Big Day Out (a series of concerts and cultural events at several venues in Australia and New Zealand), before performing "Ariels," a very popular song that young people had taken as having deep meaning, Daron Malakian, one of the founders, walks up to the microphone to say: "Once again, this song is about nothing
." There is film of John Lennon when he talks to a young American who has been camping out on his lawn in England (you can see it by clicking here
). Lennon says things such as "I'm just a guy who writes songs." and "I was just having fun with words, it was literally a nonsense song."
To refer to artifacts of popular culture--especially as they are usually produced for the cash, and really have no particular deep meaning for the author--as philosophy, is complete nonsense.
