Hmm.. Orgy, Marilyn Manson, Cradle of Filth, Queen (always Queen.lol) Loreena McKennitt.. Enya. White Zombie, Boston, The Offspring, ..hmmmm..Bach, Mozart.. lol

Mum had no issues with my music

Dad...hated it.. lol However, as long as none of it was rap or R&b, he tolerated... I never liked that kind anyway

Oh it was the 80s, so a lot of glam rock hair bands to tell us all about how we have to be slutty and slinky.

Also classical music and the blues.

And at the skating rink - RAPPER'S DELIGHT, baby.

I turned out ok.  I think it was the Rapper's Delight and not the Mozart that did it.  It certainly wasn't Cinderlla or that chick in her panties squirming around on top of the Rolls Royce.

If it's any consolation, my dad was a young dad.  :) 

I loved REO speedwagon.  That was one on my list of things I listened to as a teenager.

things I listened to: Twisted Sister, The Beastie Boys, The Cure, Flock of Seaguls, Michael Jackson, John Waite, Loverboy, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran.  LOL...Pebbles, Paula Abdul, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Cydi Lauper, Queen, Foreigner,  and the Monkees.  :) 

Quoting TranquilMind:


Of course....your DAD.  Lol

Well, it's still good stuff.  I don't care who you are.  Oh, I left out REO Speedwagon, another favorite, but they were a little later than my teens. 

I hired the teen next door to do some yardwork for me ten years ago or so, and he played MY music...only he called it "oldies". 

Whatever.

Quoting katy_kay08:

I love at least 6 of those on your list.  My dad was a huge music lover and played all those artists when I was growing up.   Not old...well seasoned.  :) 

Quoting TranquilMind:

I'm not sure my parents ever knew.  I had a chronically ill sibling who was in the hospital all the time, and basically raised myself.    Turtles, Eagles, Journey, Lynryd Skynyrd, Fleetwood Mac, Linda Rondstadt, Olivia Newton-John.  Barbra Streisand, Bob Seger.

Really scary stuff there...

Yeah, I know I'm old.  I expect to hear, "Oh yes....my MOTHER (or Grandma!) loves that stuff!".

 As a teenager..... The Cure, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, New Order, classical, Jane's Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers, mostly really upbeat stuff! lol Those are the only ones coming to mind right now, I know am forgetting a ton.

ETA The Pixies (my favorite band, can't believe I forgot them)

My parents didn't like my music but they never stopped me from listening to it or going to concerts.
