My earliest memory is AC/DC.


And this album. Over and over again. Every party, every time.


David Lee Roth was big in our house, as were Queen, Rainbow and Pink Floyd. We listened to loads of The Specials and Madness on casette. Good times. And we had the rasta who lived in the house on the corner who would blare reggae until every hour. Jimmy Cliff etc. I miss my youth.

From three years old to eight, it was whatever mom felt like playing in the car. Mostly metal/rock(such as Pantera, Metallica, Pearl Jam, "hair metal") and rap(Lil' Troy, Ice Cube, other 90s artists and artists current at the time). Not what most parents would want their kids listening to.


From eight to twelve I didn't really listen to music, except for whatever was playing on the radio.


Starting around twelve, I got into mainstream rap, from artists such as Kanye West and T.I. From there I worked my way up to different artists and different genres of music. GTA helped introduce me to a lot of these different artists/genres.


Now I'm at 19 and I'm open to almost all genres of music.

I listened to Classic Rock and Rap. Two very different genres, I know. Now, I really have no interest in rap. Some classic rock has stuck around though. Also, I was interested in metal for a while. I pretty much only listen to country these days, classic and some modern.

Show tunes. I grew up listening to show tunes. And a lot of pop left over from the 80s that was on the radio at the time. And then, after a while, I remember Oasis being ... everywhere. It was the 90s, after all. So when I was very young, I guess that was it. I remember having an S Club 7 album when I was, uh, 7, and my mom would buy the 'Now' albums that were out at the time, so around that age I got exposed to a lot of mainstream pop, stuff like Britney Spears and Pink. Yeah ... and you know what? At that age, it didn't matter all that much to me. Everyone was listening to it. I was learning dances to a lot of these songs at stage school. 


And then, I turned 11. Green Day was a big deal for me at that age, and (shh, I know) I started to get into Nickelback. At 13, I bought my first ever album: System of a Down's 'Hypnotize' and never looked back. My teens were pretty much hard rock, heavy metal, nu metal to a degree, and honestly, anything that I could get my hands on, or that friends recommended to me and it turned out I liked. 



Oh, and, I can't believe I'm admitting to this, but I was way into the Spice Girls when I was about 5.

Very very very very young (10-11): The Beatles.


Very very very young (12): WWE theme songs  :lol:


Vert very young (13-15): Rock, indie and pop. A lot of different artists.


Very young (15 (now) ): Different stuff. Rock, electronic stuff, a little bit house, and funk. Mostly Daft Punk and Jamiroquai.



I don't listen to music very much, but when I do, this is the stuff I listen to.

When I was a toddler/just starting school (mid to late 90's), both parents were fans of ABBA and Queen. Mum was also a fan of the Bee Gees, Steps, Westlife, Shania Twain, Donna Summers and Celine Dion, among others. Dad also frequently played his Gatecrasher albums with techno music from the late 90's, as well as Robert Miles. 


Big fan of Queen and ABBA (subconsciously know the lyrics to "Mama Mia" thanks to Mum using it to get me to go to sleep) as well as techno music nowadays, although I will listen to a huge variety of stuff.

I grew up on 1960s/70s R&B, Soul & Funk (Motown, Stax/Atlantic, Polydor), and some classic Rock/Pop. I loved radio stations like WABC, because they played all genres.


Of course, living in the South Bronx, I saw the birth of Rap/Hip-Hop.

A lot of 80's-00's R&B - Dad

A lot of 70's funk/rock and 80's-90's rap - Mom


This is probably why I hate a lot of modern music from 2010-now.

Lots of '60s, a bit of '70s, tons of '80s (unfortunately), a decent amount of '90s, and early 2000s punk rock.

I remember a sh*t ton of AC/DC and a bit of mid to late 90's and Early 2000s. Basically whatever was on the radio or MTV at the time. Man has MTV gone to sh*t these days. But I've adapted and really grew to like late 60s early 70s music on my own.
