Default It's "uncool" to like a band if your parents like them.

Does anyone here actually think this? I believe it's why alot of people my age don't like music that's older than 15-20 years. I believe that most teens think that music that they're parents listen to is "uncool" simply because of the fact that they listen top it. Who else believes this, and do you think this too? Discuss.

I think that it could be a fair assumption and a sense of rebellion against their parents as a kid, but I think the reason why they don't explore it for themselves is more because of peers, not parents. It would be a fair guess to say at my school of over 1000 kids, not one of them has over sat down and explored any music other than the music that is on the charts and "cool" according to society. I am frowned upon everyday for my musical tastes by kids around and they have never taken the time to explore the artist themselves but rather just label it is "****e" or whatever they choose. (Elvis Costello was todays example, he got labelled as a "rip-off of James Morrison" according to one kid)

I think it's definitely a common trend, yes. I used to think it myself and with some good reason too since my parents are the Dido listening type nowadays. Massive love to my mum for Patti Smith though!

I love bands both my parents like (my mom is a big Def Leppard fan <.<) and I don't care. Awesome music is awesome music. I get laughed at by some people what whatever, it comes from people who like BFMV, haha.

My eldest son used to severley dislike my music a couple of years ago but slowly and surely he thinks I like cool stuff. As I listen to new music he or his friends haven't even heard yet it's about time he acknowledged my awesomenes! Recently he has been getting into Foals and Massive Attack and he likes a bit of dubstep as well as loving the new Prodigy album. He's getting there slowly!
