I think that if I said something like the bolded to my kids, they would challenge me about the disco era, 80's synth pop and 90's gangsta rap and mock me unmercifully.
Anyway, they grew up listening to a wide variety of music, not necessarily "children's music", although there was a lot of that sort of thing too. Classical, rock, folk, jazz, opera, some country (old style stuff - Johnny Cash)....personally, I don't like rap or hip hop so there wasn't much of that in the house. Somehow, DS evolved into a hardcore punk rocker and DD likes some of it too, although her tastes aren't quite as hardcore.
