6 thoughts on “The Syllogisms of Martyrdom

        1. How do we classify rock martyrdom any way?

          Is there a higher value to losing your life because of living the rock lifestyle? A drug overdose is a implicit form of self-sacrifice.

          I then think about the death of Kurt Cobain. Did he kill himself in a symbolic sense for the salvation of rock n’ roll’s soul? A gentleman with a heavy punk/indie ethos, absolutely disgusted by the limelight.
