When you ask me how old I am I can answer, I listened to new Nirvana songs at school dances years old.
The kids need to know that their parents met at a Dave Matthews Band concert
My kids already know who Aerosmith is due to Guitar Hero, definitely classic stuff
Elvis is a part of pop culture that you can’t do without; basically listening to Elvis is getting a history lesson
Much like Elvis, every human needs to listen to the Beatles
Janis Joplin is a one of a kind, everyone must listen to her at least once.
I will not raise children that do not know who Led Zeppelin is. They may actually be the best band ever.
Lynyrd Skynyrd: this is comfort music.
Madonna, definitely the stuff she made before she was 40
Obvious legend, that is all.
Every teenager needs to hear Pearl Jam, right?!
They don’t have to like or listen to The New Kids On The Block more than once, just know that these guys existed is enough
Fact: There isn’t a bad Steve Miller Band song. I used to listen to this record (yes a real record) non stop as a kid.
Sublime: Obviously not yet, but these guys are just good
Fleetwood Mac: Stevie Nicks’ voice is a little piece of Heaven
If my kids can sing along to at least one Johnny Cash song, then I have done my job
