Many people use music to do such things. Music can evoke extreme feeling in people. It can also affect the behavior of people.

Rap Music Music has the ability to elicit emotion from its listeners: happiness, sadness, relaxation, frustration and aggression are feelings conjured up by music. Our research showed that the violent and sexist lyrics found in rap music is a stimulus for aggressive behavior. Since music drives emotion the violent angry lyrics presented by rap music elicits an aggressive attitude. These songs activate awareness of sexist beliefs that already existed in the listeners brain and thus evoke a mental association between rap music and sexist attitudes.
