Music is Spiritual
Music is spiritual. It is a gift from God and should always be used to glorify Him. He blesses us with many things like food, water, & shelter. He also has given us ears to hear good music & sight to watch YouTube videos, read music, etc. However, we don't glorify Him. Most people see themselves as "good," but the Bible says that "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory God." (Romans 3:23) Why? What is sin? Sin is the breaking of God's Laws (1 John 3:4): the Ten Commandments.
Let's look at just a few of the Commandments to see how you are doing: How many lies have you told? Have you ever stolen anything (regardless of the value)? Have you ever looked at someone with lust? Have you ever used God's name in vain (as a cuss word, or an exclamation)? This is blasphemy and it is very serious in His sight. Think about it. Who else's name has been used as a cuss word?
God, the righteous Judge of the entire universe, will judge those who break His law, and the penalty is an eternity in hell, His prison. However, the Good News (i.e. the Gospel) is that God wants to show mercy to us lawbreakers. God came to earth, wrapped Himself in flesh in the person of Jesus Christ, was tempted in all ways yet was without sin, and died on the cross to pay our penalty. You and I broke God's law, Jesus paid our fine, and He rose on the third day to show that He is God.
Now God commands everyone, everywhere to repent, turn from our sins, and trust Jesus as Lord and Savior. He will give you a new heart and place His Spirit within you and when you die, He will bring you into Heaven to be with Him for eternity.
