It depends on the music;
-If it's anime usually it makes me feel happy, even if it's the feel type music like CLANNAD or Angel beats.
-If it's Eurovision, how can that make you depressed?
-If it's Nordic or German, it's time to party hardcore.
-If it's Italian, Austrian, or Spanish, I can chill to that.
-If it's anything in the charts, I want to kill myself.

Well, it could be the too much of a good thing effect.

Well, it kind of makes sense. If you were depressed you would be listening to music to help cope with anxiety, stress, and depression. So it kind of makes sense. I still get the feeling their claims have little to no factual basis.

I thought every person on the ******* planet listens to music, especially teenagers?

it's makes sense. "likely to BE depressed" music "HELPS the mind and body cope with stress"

I believe listening to a lot of music would be a symptom not a cause of depression.

I sometimes depress myself on point just to release some pressure.
I.e. taking the DE in DEpress literally.

But they are listening to music to work through their depression.

That's like saying: "Most people at AA meeting are alcoholics." and being confused.

Depression is typically something you're born with. If they spend most of their time listening to music, wouldn't it be to cope with depression? It makes sense to me.

Because depressed people listen to music a lot. Not because music makes you depressed.

Regardless of the validity of these statements, the two do not contradict eachother.

correlation =/= causation

That said, music can be both the cause of and solution to problems, so it can go both ways, but it's generally more helpful even if it does make you feel more depressed for the moment.

People have got to start realizing that when it isn't so extreme that it's harmful to you, depression is a useful and often necessary human function. It's your body and feelings telling you that you've got a lot of **** to work out and that you should think hard about your problems rather than ignoring them, in the hopes that eventually you'll solve them.

In the same way, generally music is helpful even if you're depressed and listening to depressing music, because that's generally something you need to get through and past, not something to ignore or cover over. So just because music makes you more depressed doesn't mean it isn't still good for you emotionally and psychologically most of the time.

If a teen is stressed, after reading/hearing this info, they will listen to music. I don't understand the joke here. It's not conflicting in any way.
