At the "Shteeble" (clearly the correct English spelling as evidenced by "Country Yossi"), Reb Lazer answers a letter from a reader:
Dear Rabbi Lazer,

My daughter is at a rebellious age of 16. She learns in an orthodox environment, but lately she's been playing heavy metal rock in her bedroom. I don't know where she picked that up, but it's driving me crazy. When I asked her not to bring those trashy CDs home, she opened up a mouth to me and asked sarcastically, "Since when does music need a kosher certificate?" Unfortunately, I didn't know what to answer. Please give me a helping hand on this issue.

With gratitude, YS from Long Island
