Just like the topic says I want to know what music you grew up listening to?

For me it was bands like
The Sanples (if your from Colorado and/or went to cu boulder you know who they are)
BNL
five for fighting
Crowded house

Iron Maiden, The Beatles, KISS, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Michael Jackson, Scorpions.

 

After of my 13 or 14 years old I listen more Metal, but only Iron Maiden and The Beatles still listen a lot, the rest rarely.

I disliked music as a child. I don't know why I just never really liked any of it.

 

But then this song kept popping up

To name a few:

 

Led Zeppelin

Eric Clapton / Cream

Fleetwood Mac

AC/DC

Santana

ZZ Top

Queen

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Buddy Holly

Elvis Presley

Crowded House

Red Hot Chili peppers

 

Apart from RHCP - which is my favourite band, all the above is my parents' music. Car music basically. I appreciate the music a lot more now but unfortunately I still associate a lot of it with long, boring drives.

 

Apart from that, I grew up in the 90's and early 00's, so take from that what you will. I didn't like it much then, but I get very nostalgic for a lot of the cheesy pop music of that time.

Cool. Sadly, I've only seen them on TV, youtube etc.

 

My mum likes them, she used to play the Recurring Dream cassette all time back in the late nineties.

Music is big in my family and I grew up in the late 60's early 70's, so I like to think I grew up with some killer music as it was coming out.  My mother used to return from shopping with random albums for me to add to my personal collection.  She would come home with stuff from The Stones, The Doors, The Beatles...you get the idea.

 

I may be the last generation of people that sing along to the same songs as their parents....with their parents.  Even though no one in my family can sing(I'm the closest and that isn't saying much)  anytime any of my family members are together where there is music playing it becomes a sing along.  It's weird.

I didn't really listen to it but Alchemist (not the rapper, the Australian metal band), early Metallica stuff and Tool are nostalgic because my mum used to listen to them a LOT and they would be mainly what would be playing in the car.
I miss our VH Commodore :')

And now I listen to all that music! :p

But yeah I'm pretty sure when I was really young I like The Offspring and the Living End, IIRC All Torn Down by TLE was the first song I ever knew the words to.

Most of the music that I listened to when growing up revolved around what my Dad used to listen to. Two songs that really stick out are:

Well, with my late-teen mother pumping it up in the late nineties, I got used to all sorts of boy bands. 98 Degrees, Backstreet Boys, N*SYNC, blah blah blah.

 

Luckily she enjoyed Poison, Aerosmith, and Bon Jovi so it wasn't all bad.

 

Around 03' she really got into modern rock. Evanescence, Smash Mouth, and Kid Rock were the highlights.

I pretty much grew up listening to whatever music my parents were partying to, but if we're talking about the music I actually listened to myself:

 

Garth Brooks (blame my parents)

*NSync (yes, I went through that stage and it was terrible)

Eminem (not as ashamed of this, but I certainly can't listen to any of his newer "music")

50 Cent (yup, went through this stage, too)

Royce 5'9" (I'll never be ashamed of this)

 

Needless to say, I was a weird mahf*cka. Now I pretty much only listen to oldies, like stuff from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

Pre-teens (early 80s) : Kiss, W.A.S.P., Ozzy, Accept, Twisted Sister

Teens (mid-late 80s) : Venom, Bathory, Sodom, Mayhem, Possessed, Kreator, Celtic Frost, Destruction, Death, Autopsy, Carcass, Napalm Death, Exodus, Over Kill....this list could be endless

Late teens (late 80s-early 90s) : Burzum, Beherit, Emperor, Darkthrone, Ildjarn. Scandinavian BM scene.

 

Today? Pretty much same. Could add some ambient there.

Lol I know what you mean. I never saw the point of music when I was a kid. Too pre-occupied with video games I guess :D

Well my mom actually is a pop fanatic so she listens to some boy band and at first I adored to them. These are the list: BSB, N Sync, Westlife, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna. However my mom also listens to some rock music particularly Queen, Black Sabbath (and Ozzy Osbourne), AC/DC, Nirvana, Metallica, Megadeth, etc which hopefully is the reason why I continue to listen to some metal music.

 

When I was like 5-6 years old, I listened to some nu metal scenes including Linkin Park, Sevendust, Slipknot, Coal Chamber, Evanescence, SOAD, RATM, and many more so nu metal was actually my first favourite genre and the kind of metal that is brutal that I first listen to. It was actually GTA Vice City that introduced me more to classic mainstream heavy metal music and later GTA San Andreas for classic West Coast hip-hop and more classic rock music.

 

When I was actually in my pre-teens, I still got that pop fanaticism since my childhood, so at that time I listened mainly on mainstream (don't wanna mention). That when I turned 16, when I go beyond deeper to more metal music, I realized that this is truly work of art and not as what I see on modern pop, so that's why I'm now a metalhead. But I still love pop music, however not those boy bands anymore of some sort. I still listen to some Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Lady GaGa but that's all.

From there I got into Eminem, and now Hopsin.

Beastie Boys were a defining band for me... It made me love many different genres and not just one. I'd seek out the groups and tracks that were used in their tracks... Judging by the nods, samples and shout outs the Beasite Boys used, you could tell they just love music from anyone to Dub creator Lee "Scratch" Perry to Jazz legend Jimmy Smith. Beck was similar in this way and the two shared the same producers on two of my fav albums Odelay by Beck and Paul's Boutique by Beastie Boys - sample heavy albums that fuse many different styles of music from Country to Hip Hop and Funk

 

I started with Beck and Beastie Boys (two bands I got in to as a kid and not through my brother) when I was 12. Through my teens it was The Doors, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles etc and then in my 20's I progressed to Reggae, Funk, Electronic music of all sorts, classical and more

I spent some time thinking about this topic, songs I heard that weren't kid songs you listen to based on age and content, because of your age, of course, but music around the home, on the radio. My cousins expanded my listening palette from the 1970s I'd say, since I was the oldest in my family, and my parents didn't listen to music, my dad played piano and organ, but he didn't put on records too often at all, I was drawn to music more then anyone I can think of in my whole family! Like Anthrax record, I believe "Worship Music"

Kind of a creedo without even knowing
