04.29.17 Albums that I can listen to with my par

Albums that I can listen to with my parents

I am working a 11.5 hour shift now, and I just heard a Nickelback song on the radio. That got me thinking of all the songs and albums that both myself and my very conservative, religious, midwestern parents can at least tolerate. Here is the list I can think of after looking through all my music on my phone. I'm sure this list can apply to other people and their parents also haha.
My Private Nation

I am not sure if Calling All Angels is religious, but my parents sure do think it is.
2Matchbox Twenty
Mad Season

Matchbox twenty does a great job making decent, 'nonthreatening' music. Unwell is the best example of this.
33 Doors Down
Away from the Sun

3 Doors Down's first two albums are examples of good 'nonthreatening' music.
Dark Horse

You can hate Nickelback all you want, but God damn it, they can really make catchy singles. Gotta Be Somebody is defiantly a guilty pleasure for me. Nickelback singles are played everywhere, so I know my parents dont hate it
The Reason

While 'the reason' started playing on my phone, my mother mentioned how if my band sounded more like Hoobastank, she would actually enjoy my music, and tell her friends about my music.
Toto IV

I remember seeing this CD in my dads CD collection when I was a child. Africa is one of his favorite songs. My mother never tells me to turn it off when I have it playing.
7The Cars
Heartbeat City

My mother doesn't tell me much about her music taste when she was in High School, but she did mention to me that she had a cassette of The Cars greatest hits in high school. I bought this album and have played it while I was in the car with her. She never tells me to turn it off.
8The Beach Boys
Pet Sounds

It blows me away how easy of an album this is to listen to. I remember being in a car ride with both my parents and grandparents, and all four of them mentioned how they liked the music that was playing, which was Pet Sounds.
9The Alan Parsons Project
Eye in the Sky

This was another album that my dad had in his CD collection. He doesn't listen to it much anymore, but when I play it in the car, he doesn't tell me to turn it off. He does like to complain how Michael Jordan diminished the Alan Parsons Project or whatever.
10The Beatles

"If you are going to play the Beatles, don't play that awful hippie, drugged up Beatles crap. Play anything before Rubber Soul."

"If you are going to play music in the car, at least play a Christian band that doesn't sound like the devil himself is singing it."
12Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water

Come on, who doesn't like Simon and Garfunkel???
13Michael Jackson

My parents will start tapping their leg until they realize its Michael Jackson. Then they will say, "Turn that creeps music off!"
Silver Side Up

I know I already mentioned Nickelback, but they are essentially geared towards my parents generation. Plus, this album as a whole is pretty respectable.
15American Football
American Football

So I took my parents to a play in Minneapolis, and its about a 3 hour drive from my parents place to Minneapolis. I played this album during that car ride and they did not complain. They didn't tell me to turn off the devils music, or make snarky comments on how this isn't real music or whatever. So I am counting it on this list.
16The Cure
The Head on the Door

My mother tells me that this reminds of her high school. She never tells me to turn it off. My dad can't stand it though.
17Johnny Cash
The Legend of Johnny Cash

My dad loves Cash. My mother hates how big of a dick he is, but always hum the tune to Ring of Fire when its on.
18Elvis Presley
Elvis: 30 #1 Hits

My parents love listening to Elvis, especially his Christian stuff.
Hunting High and Low

"This is that one song with the music video that looks like a drawing right? Haha, ohh boy that takes me back to High School"

Dancing Queen is my fathers jam apparently.
