I look at the kids these days and the horrible noises they listen to and call music. I just don't get it anymore the House music, the mumble rap, I lost the thread somewhere during the early 2000's.

I am trying to do my son right, teach him Dire Straits, Queen, Credence, Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, NWA, Dr Dre, Tupac, Biggie, Metallica, Elvis. What are some of your music suggestions?

Dixie Land, Swing, old Musicals, anything where real musicians are actually making the music v. electronically enhanced and modified.
Singers that can actually carry a tune.

There's a whole lot of music from different genres to explore. I'll just name a few here that hasn't been mentioned yet but one could go on for ever.

Al Green
BB King
Billy Idol
Blacknuss
Curtis Mayfield
Gary Moore
Helloween
Håkan Hellström
Iron Maiden
Kool & the gang
Lenny Kravitz
Marvin Gaye
Otis Redding
Pearl Jam
Phil Collins
Prince
Queensrÿche
Sade
Stevie Wonder
Sting
The Black Crowes
The Police
U2
Whitesnake


I don't know if you should be careful to what you listen to around your kid. When a kid grows up he/she may rebel against his/her parents. So if he sees your Metallica and and Dire Straits albums he might start to listen to something complete opposite of that, like a future Justin Bieber or something.

Electronic music can be really good, but most of the new shit, just has no soul.

Para
Yes maybe, but at least I can say, I tried my best.

Don't trash the horrible music your kid is listening to, thats the best way to ensure he'll try to prove you wrong and stick to the trash. Maybe play some good shit on the background when you are home, like the best of creedence clearwater or Abbey Road. Musical memory is strong, kids will remember it fondly, even if they dont like it initially. And yes, I tried to listen to the stuff my older son seems to enjoy, it is not good.

It all I can hope for, I play him this stuff when he is young, then he goes through a phase and hopefully he finds his way back. This was sorta my music story, I "discovered" Dire Straits in high school and then I find out apparently my parents had their albums at home. This old stuff was playing in the back ground when I grew up.

My favorite band all time is the Kinks.

Lately I have been listening to Dead Sara, Butcher Babies, Betty Blowtorch and bands similar.

Ramones probably needs to be on the list somewhere along with some other punk bands.

When I am working and have music on in the background it is usually 70s 80s rock. ELO, Blue Oyster Cult, Nazareth, Van Halen, ACDC all that kind of stuff.

well first id like to say, you can't control what your kid likes. my dad loved jimmy buffet, as a kid i rejected that solely cause he loved that. now i do enjoy jimmy.

some more modern stuff that i didn't see posted
Bon Iver - in my opinion the best indie folk singer alive right now
Of Monsters and Men - Great lyrics that take you on a trip
MGMT - just great music
21 Pilots - two dudes who seem like they should be a lot less then what they actually are. their new single, the hype, shows just how much they have grown and are growing as artists
Foster the people - another band that is growing and shows so much potential.

Can't believe I failed to put Fleetwood Mac on the list. I know I left a lot off but I have over twenty of their albums not counting the box sets and listen to them often.

Also a lot of what I call 70's AM rock is good. Bands like Moody Blues and Three Dog Night. I know those examples may be more 60's bands but they got a ton of air play in the 1970's and that is when I listened to them.

Oh and throw Jefferson Airplane on the list.

“Fleetwood Mac ”

What FM era do you enjoy most, TJ? Peter Green blues, in between whatever style Kirwain/Welch edition or Nicks-Buckingham glory years? I don’t know any other band that changed their whole style like that, the more I read about and listen to FM, the more it defies belief. Peter Green was a a magnificent talent, it was tragic how he took lsd and went nuts, in Germany. Also an unbelievable story btw

Everything is great about this performance, young-ish Hef, braless 1970s girls dancing wildly, almost unrecognizable Mik Fleetwood and John McVie, but especially Peter Green who was awesome, both as guitar player and as a frontman

I'm a blues, ballad and soft rock fan. I like particular songs from all era's of Mac. I enjoy pretty much all genres of music.

Green was a musical genius.
