Abstract

In literature, figurative language is a special use of words that is used in songs and poetries to deliver a message to the people. Songs which are released from one country could be a reflection of what culture or habits that the society have in the country. In Eastern countries, things related with sexual objects are considered taboo. However, a modern country like Japan has several sexual phenomena in its people. Meanwhile, a metal band named The Gazette portrays these sexual phenomena in their song album. This band delivers sexual messages in their song lyrics in forms of figurative language. The songs which are used as primary data of this thesis are Filth in the Beauty, My Devil on the Bed, Sugar Pain and Forbidden Beaver. The purpose of this research is to show not only about the meaning of the figurative words in those songs but also about the sexual message which is delivered in The Gazette‘s songs. Things related to sexuality deal with a theory called gender role or mostly known as feminism. That is why, in this research, the qualitative method is used to explain about the gender role theory. By listening and making an analysis of each figurative words in these songs, this research finds that those songs portrayed a modern sexual phenomena in Japan such as sukebei or old guy who is sex maniac nerd, rorikon or young girl who is object of sexual harassment, an existence of enjo-kosai or underage prostitutes, and incest habit which is often done by Japanese mothers.
