Hortatory exposition text:

Rock Rocks!!
Rock music has been one of the most powerful music in the world.Rock does not only concern with the music but also the life and fashion style of the rockers.
Argument 1
Firstly, there are those who do not approve of the way rockers dress and behave. Some go further and accuse rockers of Satanism. For example, Ozzy Osbourne, a famous rock star, often bit the head off small animals and drank their blood on stage. Many people considered such acts affiliated with Satanism.
Argument 2
Secondly, there are also occasions where teen commits suicide after going to a concert or listening to music. Such cases strengthen the conviction of many people that rock music, such as heavy metal and underground music is truly a bad influence.
Argument 3
Finally, for those reasons, I think the rockers should give positive examples to the listeners because the listeners tend to listen to their idols instead of other people.
