My kids are allowed to listen to songs about sex and drugs...

Not mine, but I know people who play certain kinds of music in front of their kids about sex, drugs, killing people, or something to that nature.
I used to listen to M&M but ended up having to take all those songs off my mp3 player because my daughter was repeating. My son never did, but still its not appropriate IMO for kids to hear that stuff.
I have a song "I hate everyone" that I listened to bu stopped because my daughter started singing it.

I do listen to some songs as long as its not too bad and sencored and the kids cant understand it, but its mild compared to what some people listen to.
What about you? Do you think its ok for kids to listen to ICP, M&M, a lot of the new rappers out there talking about drugs, sex, and killing ppl?

My dd is 4 and I do not censor what I listen to around her. And I listen to some really explicit music. She will/has learned that just because some one else says it doesn't mean she can...

My children listen to what I listen to. They also know that it is just music and that some songs shouldn't be repeated etc. And it's not just rappers talking about drugs and killing people!

I don't listen to ICP, Eminem, or much rap. I do listen to a lot of old punk and oi though and I don't care if my son hears it or not

 My son is soon to be 7.  We dont listen to it... so he doesnt listen to it.. If he ever gets to wanting to listen to it.. we will have a discussion.  My stepson listens to that god awful mess called slipknott and other deafening trash like that... I hate that.. I will throw a radio out if my son ever wants to listen to that mess.

it depends on how "classic" the song is...

If it's a song they need to know about because of the awesomeness they can listen to it but not just rap songs about nothing but ass..
