What music/bands did you listen to as a teenager? What did your parents think of it?
A lot of the same stuff I listen to now. Smashing Pumpkins, Silverchair, STP, Foo Fighters and such. I get my love of music from both parents, but my dad was always more cool with secular music than my mom. He was raised on rock-n-roll and my mom was raised on church hymns. She never really liked me listening to the secular stuff, but she also knew I wouldn't enjoy the Christian stuff either, even when I was a Christian. I really did try and its not my cuppa tea, lol. I guess she figured since I wasn't a wild kid (no sex, drugs or partying) that it was ok for me to have this once "vice".
I listened to it all, except jazz...my parents loved that I could be in the car and the oldies station was fine for me...
Motley Crue. My parents didn't see any issue with it in fact. My mom is on Nikki Sixx's Facebook page!
