Mztlplx: I grew up listening to Delta blues and bebop jazz. And while those aren't my usual taste in music today (metal), I still love 'em. Gave me a basis for musical appreciation, it did./thanks Dad
Kuta: What does the fox say?
KinetiKiteniK: I was raised in a moderately strict Lutheran household and music wasn't my parents thing. The only time I'd hear music was a mixture of Glenn Campbell and church hymns. I'm glad I found Slayer and Metallica in 1985.
Cewley: then add the horrible vocal masturbation by the likes of mariah carey, and all her clones, what's left?
Solty Dog: The only music that was allowed in our house was Elvis and country like Freddie Fender and Jeanie Pruett. I don't prefer it, but I tolerate it just the same as most music. The only stuff I can't stand is Polka.
snuff3r: My poor kids.. they get an ecclectic mix of 70-80s music via their mother and really, really heavy shiat via me.Though my kids tell me they hate my music I have to admit pride when I catch my 2yo daughter "dancing" to Slayer or Gojira or whatever i'm listening to.
Smeggy Smurf: oompa oompa oompa oompaIt's not that different thanoontz oontz oontz oontz

MrEricSir: It's basically like David Chappelle said, the electric guitar is the instrument that speaks to the soul of the white person.
Cewley: this is total bullshiat. i grew up in the 60s. i wasn't a huge fan of my parents music, but it was certainly tolerable, and in some cases quite good. the reason my children (and grand children) like music from my favorite era is that ever since music that was yelled (not sung) by angry people became what was played on mtv and the radio, popular music has been in the toilet. then add the horrible vocal masturbation by the likes of mariah carey, and all her clones, what's left?
