What kind of music did you grow up listening to? Like, your parents, grandparents etc...


Like for me:

My (step) dad was a Jazz person...so I grew up listening to Jazz (unfortunately :P)

Groups like: Chick Correa, Jaco Pastorius, Gino Vanelli, Santana, Weather Report, Frank Sinatra (A LOT)...etc etc...and he was also a HUGE Led Zeppelin fan O_O...So...on and on....all I would sometimes hear is LED ZEPPELIN AND LED ZEPPELIN AND LED ZEPPELIN...


My mom was a "hippie", so...I often heard bands like : Cheap Trick, Pink Floyd, Queen (YAY! :D), Led Zeppelin (cough), The Beatles.......and a bunch of classical music.....like Mozart and Beethoven....etc....


SO....yeah........sorry for such a stupid topic...but I'm interested...and curious...:P

I grew up on, for the most part, the music I listen to now. Stuff like Queen (always a big part of my life), Meat Loaf, etc.

I grew up listening to classical music, not only listening but playing it too xD That's all my mom listened to....
My dad....God this is weird....anyways, all he liked was Hotel California so basically that's the only 'song' I grew up with....lol
and thanks to my brother I started getting into classic rock a while ago!
oh I also grew up listening to some horrible russian pop....:S:S:S but that was because of my uncle xD

Mommy liked Elvis, Charlie Rich, John Denver and Barry Manilow. Daddy liked Willie Nelson. Then stepdad came along. He liked Queen, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Jethro Tull, The Eagles, Alan Parsons...

So I grew up hearing a wide variety of stuff and my first personal musical tastes included Hall & Oates, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Queen, Village People.. I basically became a music consumer just as disco was dying and it appealed to me a great deal, and of course it was Another One Bites the Dust that really got me into Queen.

And I still enjoy a bit of all of that.

My dad: Reggea and soul.
My mum: 70s 80s Pop, Rock N Roll.
Older Brother: Hip Hop, RnB and Rap.

So basically a mixture of everything....

VH1 helped by introducing me to Queen and other Classic Rock bands.

father: random stuff, mostly classical music, OPM and 70's rock.

mother: jazz, the old kind of RNB, pop, disco, 80's music. FYI: she knows body language, but she didn't know it was by Queen.

I grew up with Queen, Annie Lennox, Dragon, Eric Clapton and dare I admit it, the Spice Girls. At my school, you were either in club Spice Girls or club B*Witched. How sad is that!

My mom is a pianist and organist - so lots of classical music as well as piano lessons for me, of course. I listened to so much music - but just stuff on the radio mostly ... not until Queen did I want to get all the music of one group.

Well, my mother has always been a beatles fan, she still almost faints at the sight of Paul Mcartney! And she liked country stuff like Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, and Dolly Parton, when i was a kid. My fathers side of the family mostly likes spanish music.

When I was really little, my parents listened to what would be called now "Adult Easy Listening"...you know, Phil Collins, Elton John, that kind of stuff. When I was about 14 or so they both switched over to country, so I grew up mostly with country western stuff. Now that I'm out of the house, Mom is going back into her 60's stuff (Hall and Oates, etc) and Dad is sticking pretty much with country, although he does venture into classic rock (I recently found a Led Zepplin CD in his car!) and getting back to his childhood with trumpet music (Chris Botti mainly).
Me, I grew up listening mostly to the "new" stuff that was coming out at the time...typical 80's and 90's Pop and boy bands (yes..that includes NKOTB). But I had cousins who listened to Metallica, and I got into Queen when I was around 15 or so. I still have a soft spot in my heart for Chorales, Masses and Arias, along with Broadway. But as a general rule, now I'm getting into the older classic rock (although I'm still a sucker for Power Ballads of the 80's). About the only thing I won't listen to is rap (it isn't music), jazz (my brain can't follow it) and anything older than about 1955.

when i was little i listened to the backstreet boys alot..... i even went to a concert, whoa...

I was into that whole punk rock thing, Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, etc... when I first heard Another one bites the dust... I then asked my father if he had a Queen cd... his answer was a 20 year old cassette...so i popped it in the boombox and jammed... i ws immmediately brought to my senses the rest is history

First, I would like to say hello to all of you, because I'm new at this wonderful place :)

My early years are the years of The beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Elvis Presley and Queen ofcourse :)
And I thank my parents for that :)
Than I started to listen to all this pop crap, but it lasted only for a few years and I came back to rock agai :) When I ask any Queen fan about his "music history", they say nearly the same :)
