|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.
Matchbox twenty does a great job making decent, 'nonthreatening' music. Unwell is the best example of this.
|3||3 Doors Down|
Away from the Sun
3 Doors Down's first two albums are examples of good 'nonthreatening' music.
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
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.
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.
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.
|8||The Beach Boys|
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.
|9||The 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.
"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."
|12||Simon and Garfunkel|
Bridge Over Troubled Water
Come on, who doesn't like Simon and Garfunkel???
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
|Alternative title for this list: All the mainstream shit people on the radio classify as 'rock music'.|
|Oh and by the way, saying that you can listen to The Cure with your parents, well, that's a savage fucking burn, kudos.|
|Your mom loves 13|
|your parents are lame|
|i'm pretty all parents like paul simon. my dad used to play graceland all the time when i was a kid.|
but he also played shit like black sabbath and went to pantera shows so he was alright by lame dad standards.
|Boring parents alert. Introduce em to some Gucci.|
|if i caught my parents listening to gucci i'd call cps|
even tho i'm 30
|I'm a lil confused, why is listening to the cure with your parents a "savage fuckin burn"??|
|Yeah, I don't understand that either? Whats wrong with listening to the cure?|
I'm pretty sure all parents are lame, Snake haha
|Well cause, you know, they're like a goth rock band and all that, so if you say that it's the kind of music that's so inoffencive that you can share it with your parents, I think it's quite a dig.|
|Not sure why this list needed to be a list.|
|Because lists man, let him live his dream.|
|parents are super catholic conservos buuut my mom was into van halen nd my dad was into iggy pop and blackflag. no complaints, i'll show them anything from devourment to deathgrips|
