There are plenty of myths around in the world and music is one of the subjects that have a lot of them. It is really easy to understand why myths are born and they can be very persistent things.Music

Here are five really big music myths that have been around for a long time now.

1. Music Makes You Smart

Now although music can have a lot of positive benefits to us humans it most certainly doesn’t make us smarter.

There has long been a rumour that listening to Mozart as a baby or even in the womb would somehow make you smarter.

Unfortunately this isn’t true and we just need to keep studying. But you should still enjoy music since it can affect your mood and energy positively.

2. A Boy Or A Girl

Musicians are under a really tight scrutiny and sometimes this has gotten some really invasive forms. There are many rumours regarding the gender of some of the most well known singers. For example, as this TruTV article points out Lady Gaga has been denying the rumour that she might be a man. There have also been rumours that Ciara was born as a man as well.

3. Murder In The House

Many myths surrounding the music business are also to do with murder. In many cases these rumours have probably been born out from the tragic loss of a great musicians and the fact that it is hard to understand the loss of a loved one.

The most famous murder suspicion is most likely the one involving the Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Cobain shot himself in the 1990s but the rumour has it that his wife Courtney Cobain got him killed instead.

4. Wild Rock Acts

There are plenty of myths surrounding rock bands. For example, one of the most persistent rock myths is the rumour that Ozzy Osbourne used to bite of heads of live bats on stage. This is untrue, although it is easy to understand why the rumour got started in the first place.

What happened once on stage was that Osbourne bit into a bat that he thought to be a rubber prob. Instead the bat bit back and he had to undergo rabies treatment. So it was an accident that turned into a myth.

5. Dead Or Alive

And lastly, there are plenty of myths in the music industry surrounding musicians who are either dead or alive. For instance, there are a lot of people that believe that Elvis is still alive and just faked his own death to get away from the public.

Perhaps more bizarrely there are plenty of rumours surrounding Paul McCartney, for instance. Now we all know that Paul McCartney is still alive but many people believe he died in a car crash in 1966.

The above myths have long lived in the music industry. It is also very likely that we will continue seeing these sort of rumours for a long time as that is very much what the human minds does.

All these talk about famous artists dying too soon makes me think maybe there really is such a thing as "making a deal with the devil". The stories sound very typical. Artist makes a deal with the devil. Devil gives the artist five to ten years to live a life people can only dream about. Then the devil claims his soul. Is this a coincidence? We don't know. If someone is as big as the devil, what does he need a man's soul for?

Distortion and overdrive pedals are both sometimes referred to as gain pedals, or perhaps dirt or crunch pedals. These types of pedals add extra grit to your guitar tone, and in the process they can also boost the volume a bit, if so required. Whether it's called gain, dirt or grit - the idea is the same. There is another type of gain pedal that should be mentioned here as well - the fuzz pedal, as it also belongs to this family of pedals. However, I'm leaving fuzz pedals out of the discussion for the rest of this article.
