Maybe a bit of Joy Division, I always liked it when my brother played them as a kid.

I find this odd as when I was a kid my favorite songs were jazzier songs with big solos in them.

Specifically, I would recommend:
Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
Elliott Smith - XO


They don't swear too much on those, and they have a pretty aesthetic and soothing quality about them.
Even though Smith is just about as depressing as Drake, it's much more subtle, I don't think a kid would realize it.

I only recommended Sigur Ros, because most of their songs are beautifully crafted and happy.

Also, that catchy rock stuff is a must for kids, I just wouldn't personally recommend it.

Anyway, I'm with cardboard adolescent, I was raised on Rage Against the Machine/Nirvana/Smashing Pumpkins, that's the way to go, I'm also with him on a sexual level btw.

XO is one of Elliotts saddest albums. I Didn't Understand? Pitseleh? Sweet Adeline? I don't think a little kid would appreciate it or it care for it too much.

I can hardly be entertained with an Elliott album, yet alone a 6 year old. I apprciate him and realise his talent, but a 6 year old would not.

Beautifully sad, like Romeo and Juliet.
Besides, I'm speaking for me, damn.

I agree with you, I just as blain said don't think it would be what a six year old would like.

Anyway, can people start actually taking this seriously?

I back up the Cure, and would like to add the Smiths to it. Postal Service would be better then Death Cab more clean, though both are pretty non-swearing. I'd check out later Death Cab stuff. I'd go with Rocky too, though probably Makers over Suicide Medicine.

80s pop for the most part is good, the Ramones would be cool. They have a few songs with sketchy themes (Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue, Were A Happy Family) but for the most part they're good. My cousin's daughter is around that age and she really likes them.
