Did your parents disapprove of the music you listened to?

My parents never told me what not to listen to I can always tell if they dont like something and Ill listen to that when others arent around or just at lower volumes

KISS, Black Sabbath, Grateful Dead (because of "Friend of the Devil")
the Beatles, Spencer Davis Group (becuase of "Gimme Some Lovin'")

and


John Denver (never understood that one, not that I care)

My parents were cool about the music that came blaring from my room, lots of Hendrix, Beatles, BOA, ABB, Stones, Captain Beyond, Doobies, Sabbath, Tull, Zep, then I went off to college and discovered jazz back in the 70s, bet they would have enjoyed that more!

Heh heh...
Brings back a smile.
My mom used to subscribe to the PTA magazine. One month it had a list of objectionable songs. My brother and I got the lecture. I tuned out most of it, but I do remember a couple of tunes on the list--Jenny Take a Ride by Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels,
and Little Egypt by the Coasters. I bet I could still quote all the lyrics to Little Egypt.

all of it


they never told me not to listen, they just didn't like it, in general. To their credit they supported me in what I wanted to listen to and play (I was a drummer).

As I got older, my dad kinda liked (or at least tolerated) David Bromberg and Little Feat

Nah, they never really came down on me - my mom was a big Beatles fan from the early days, and my dad was a first generation rock-n-roller, so I'm sure they got enough crap from their own parents and didn't feel the need to pass it along to me.

They thought Kiss were a bunch of clowns, but they never tried to curb my listening.

What was funny though, was when I got into George Thorogood in my late teens. I started listening to a lot of Blues thanks to George, but also a lot of "roots rock," so years after my Kiss and Metal phases, all of a sudden I start blasting my own Bill Haley, Duane Eddy, Johnny and the Hurricanes, etc. That surprised the hell out of my dad, in a good way.

They used to beg me to 'turn it down!' and didn't like some of what I listened to from a personal standpoint but never restricted what I listened to. The 'turn it down' is making me chuckle right now because it's reminding me of getting After the Gold Rush home for the first time and how it coincided with my mom having friends over for coffee. There were quite a few 'turn it downs' going on that day.

My parents never said word one about the music I chose. My mom was especially open-minded about it, so I was open to her music too. She took me to see Ray Charles in '78.

I remember one time she was in my car, and asked who was that I was playing. Grateful Dead (Reckoning), I said. "They're good pickers!" Yes they were. She just saw her 1st ABB show in Oct and really liked Warren especially. Bless her heart!

my parents never bothered me too much about what I listened to over the years, although like the rest of ya'll, was requested to turn it down all the time & to use headphones when I could...of course then she complained they were too loud & gonna make me deaf!
The ONLY one that they really ever tweaked about was OZZY! I was really into back in the early 80's, but then that bat thing made it's way around the globe plus he looked kinda scarey ~ so, I was told not to listen to it ~ but I did anyway!

My Mom had me young - I owe a lot of my musical preferences to her!! She brought me up on the Stones, Beatles, Motown, all kinds of good music. I can remember coming home from kindergarten and she would be blaring Magical Mystery Tour!! So needless to say they never really complained - and as for it being too loud - the bought me kick-ass headphones for Christmas Perfect for Yes and Floyd!! Course they called my room my ivory tower and if I got punished the first thing they did was take away my stereo because they knew it was the most important thing to me!! Scariest thing is the fact that my Mom used to sing Dirty Deeds (AC/DC) while cooking dinner

Although my father never explicitly told me that he disapproved of my music or specific artists whom I listened to, he did get annoyed when I listened to it all the time, as I spent my days buying records and tapes instead of focusing on school. He thought that's all I cared about was buying records and music.

The truth was, the music really helped me get through the stressful years of high school. I found it as an escape from the realities of life. Nothing better than coming home from a lousy day of school and putting on side 2 of Bruce's "The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle" in the afternoon. Really made me feel good.

Once I got into college and moved away from the parents, my music interests continued to expand, but I also did very well, making Dean's list and landing some good paying jobs.

Thank you rock n roll for helping me thru the hard times and enjoying the good times!!

With the exception of the New Kids on the Block phase and the R&B/Rap phase that I shudder to remember and thankfully grew out of very quickly, my parents never had an issue with what I listened to. Which could have been because they were listening to the same thing

I don't think it was because of his attire! LOL.

My parents did not tell me what to listen to, but they made it very hard for me to stay in a band I was in in high school. They would not take me to or pick me up from band practice, even though it was about 3 miles away, so I hitchhiked. They refused to take me to the gigs and did not support me when I wanted to purchase a guitar. I ended up borrowing one from the bass player because the one I wanted was too expensive for me even though I was earning money(at another part time job) and would have paid them back. I finally bought the strat I always wanted....

My parents made fun of a guy named Alice Cooper.

But then my Mother listened to a guy named Humperdink so that stopped her in her tracks.

Mine never paid much attention, but my mother did get an earful of the refrain to Billy the Mountain.

She suggested I wear headphones when I wanted to listen to that one.

Believe it or not but the now back together (original & only line up @ 40ish!) New Kids On The Block is touring again....they are doing a show in March @ a casino here in Niagara Falls & they sold out immediately! People are advertsing looking for tix & willing to pay like 500 bucks a pop! that's crazy!
