    Abstract

    Personal denial and social rejection are two types of psychological disorders which have the strongest bond with human. Personal denial happens when someone has difficulties in making a proper condition for his inner self, social rejection is a condition in which someone has social difficulties to suit into a certain environment. Those two things hold a very important role in forming psychological maturity. Realizing the important value of learning personal denial and social rejection, a study on personal denial and social rejection is worth conducted. This descriptive qualitative study analyzes personal denial and social rejection reflected in song lyrics. Linkin Park’s song lyrics in their third album “Meteora” were chosen for this purpose. The objective of this study is to discover how Linkin Park manifests personal denial and social rejection through the lyrics in “Meteora”. The six song lyrics in Linkin Park’s third album “Meteora”, those are “Easier to Run”,”Breaking the Habit”, and “Don’t Stay” representing personal denial and “Faint”, “Nobody Listening”, and “Lying from You” representing social rejection are the data of this final project. The analysis is conduct based on the data reflecting personal denial and social rejection. All of the data are in the form of sentences. These data were gathered from song lyrics mentioned above. I use some books and references related to the subject matters to get the supporting materials to complete my analysis. I find that the lyrics were full of personal denial and social rejection, most of which are reflects implicitly. The result of the study shows that in “Meteora” album, Linkin Park describes their personal denial and social rejection related to their biography.. Personal denial which is describes in the songs reflects the moments when they had to face several difficulties to solve and some questions to answer so that they will be able to know about themselves. It is common that when someone starts to grow up the denial rises up. Social phenomenon which is called social rejection is described implicitly in the song. Moreover, Linkin Park themselves also face social rejection in their time to gain their maturity. This study is expected to give contribution to the students in understanding how psychological disorders are. From this study, we can see that personal denial and social rejection can help people gain their psychological maturity
