Abstract

The “symbiotic relationship” concept, which, in biology, is used as a key concept to define the benefit-harm relationship in cooperative vital activities, refers to modes of living in which individuals or populations of different species help or harm each other. The aim of this study is to apprehend through which tools, institutions, organizations, identities and platforms the metal band “Murder King”, who, in addition to their musical texts constituents of which are sound and lyrics, maintains the protest elements in their non-musical texts including their costumes and stage performances and who attracts attention with their protest discourse, integrates into the “dominant ideological structure” to which they created a resistance through their discourse and to apprehend how the same metal band establishes a mutual symbiotic relationship with this structure, within the context of a type of mutual sym-biotic relationship defined as mutualism.
