While disgraced Disney has the child gender grooming market cornered, there is another type of grooming that seemingly flies under the radar, and most parents do not even notice.

Sports play a huge role in culture, and music is a significant part of keeping the crowd engaged and the athletes pumped up during games. But have you ever listened to the lyrics of some of the crowds' favorite bangers reverberating throughout the stadium?

According to SBNation, universities and clubs were polled to see which songs are played most often at spectator sporting events.

The 25 biggest game-day bangers of the decade ranked several songs that should make parents wonder why they are played during spectator sports. Lyrics that promote murder are played frequently.

"Fearless" host Jason Whitlock did some digging and said the music fosters a culture of death. A study in the mid-2010s concluded that murder was the cause of 51.5% of rappers' deaths. No other genre comes close. It’s clear that rap embraces and promotes a culture of death.

“Murder and Hip-Hop music go together like peanut butter and jelly, and we’re bathing our kids in Hip-Hop music," Jason said.

But don't take his word for it. Here are some lyrics from SBNation's top 25 game-day rap songs:

“Big Rings” by Drake and Future (2015)

...Man, what a time to be alive
I'm drinking lean, they thought I died
I run with kidnappers, I'm talking 'bout kidnappers
I'm talking 'bout murdering n*****s, I'm talkin' 'bout carjackers...

“Hard In Da Paint” by Waka Flocka Flame (2010)

I go hard in the mother******g paint, n*****
Leave you stanking, n****, what the f*** you thinking, n****
I won't die for this sh** or what the f*** I say (Brick Squad)
Front yard, broad day with the SK
See Gucci, that's my mother******g n****
I hang in the town with them Hit Squad killers
Waka Flocka Flame, one hood-a** n****
Riding real slow, bending corners, my n****

“Work (Remix)” by A$AP Ferg (2013)

Got me feelin' like Jim Jones
I'm a pimp though, no limp though
Couldn't copy my style in Kinkos
Put in work, run up on a killer then I put him in the dirt
Run up in the buildin', semi gon' squirt
