Default Were any of you not allowed to listen to rock music growing up?

And were you forced to listen to Sandy Patty go to a Christian school and participate in Awanas?

Hehe, my mom didn't like me playing the Mothers of Invention "Absolutely Free" album when I was 10, but did inform me that a bowed double bass was one of the instruments in "Brown Shoes".

Me. I used to have to furtively listen to Radio Luxembourg at night in bed with my little transistor radio pressed against one ear.

Thanks to language barrier we could listen to as many "parental advisory" albums as we wanted.

Christian school where rock-n-roll is banned and of the devil: Yes. The Sandy Patty or Awanas thing no. I listened anyway and have played in evil rock-n-roll bands for 38 years now. Fuck them.

Nah. My father played in a rock band in his teens so rock music was always around. Only thing I remember my mom discussing me about my listening preferences was in the 90's when the black metal panic hit Finland. I told her that I knew people who listened to black metal and they were the nicest people I knew (2 of my best friends). And that was that.

BTW, this is the "documentary" that caused such a panic. Oh the 90's and the naivety! Although us kids knew all this was just bullshit even back then. But parents were clueless.

In my childhood there were two TV channels and one national radio channel. Most of the music coming from them was classical, folk songs, jazz, old rock and pop. Once in a blue moon there would be some new "harder edge" rock song in the midst of it all. I cherished all those that I managed to hear and maybe even record. But basically all modern rock music was from albums and cassettes older friends in the neighbourhood were buying and loaning to us kids.

While my grandparents were against most of the modern music back then, considering it to be just screaming and noise, they didn't prevent us from listening it on our own. And my parents were actually encouraging us to get into rock music and were thrilled to see us getting so excited about it. Even the original punk rock explosion, which was of course an exciting revelation to us kids, was ok to parents as long as they didn't have to hear it themselves.

Interestingly enough, it was the other way around with instruments. Dad never supported or accepted getting any instruments. It was grandpa who bought the first recorder and guitar for me and my little brother. He was also teaching us how to play harmonica and was glad to loan it to us if we wanted to play. Unbeknownst to my dad, I bought my first electric guitar with all of my summer work savings and smuggled it into house. Later on it was grandpa who gave his old radio to use it as my first guitar amplifier.

Only music ban in our home was one week of no music at all after grandpa died. Kinda understandable back then, but I felt that grandpa himself would've rather had us honor his time and passing with music.

Ha, same applied in our home too. Sometimes their questions about what this and this song is about got us kids giving them pretty roundabout answers.

I somehow knew when I stumbled across The Fugs First Album at age 10 that I could never have it out or listen to it when any adults were around. Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin were never a problem though!

There wasn't any Fox around back then to brainwash Mom. Maybe just the first hints of interest in authoritarian lifestyle. I was turned on to Zappa way late at 18 or so. It would have sailed straight over Mom's head of course but otherwise this would have been the biggest red flag! (And it would have been more songs like Packard Goose or Trouble Every Day than Catholic Girls.)

Kept that Fugs album hidden though until it got stolen from me in college.

That subservient church cult music I've heard with the pathetic groveling lyrics sung to their perceived overlords has a special place in hell waiting for it I'm sure. Pure torture.

My parents were Beatniks and Hippies, and my dad is a guitarist, so I grew up listening to all the 60s and 70s classics, all the way through to things like 'Never Mind The Bollocks'. I'm looking forward to inheriting my dad's vinyl collection, guitars and Class A 70s hi-fi when he passes.

My friends with "straight" parents were all jealous growing up, particularly throughout my teenage years.

What a world that image conjures up for me too - even slightly before rewinding cassettes with pencils. However I seem to recall it was more to do with bedtimes than bans on music genres.

My dad played sax in a big band, but as kids he and my uncle shared a 1933 Gibson L-00, which is now mine. Plays like butter and sounds incredible for recording. My nephew got all my dad's big band vinyl and nobody wanted his Sony receiver or 15" Cerwin Vega speakers.

"That's what's causing all those riots down in New Orleans", said my Dad, as I think it was Gene Vincent came on the radio.

The only time my parents said anything about my music (other than asking me to turn it down) was when I brought home Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables. My mom thought Jello sounded deranged and didnít think I should be listening to it. Didnít take it away or anything. I just didnít play DK out loud when she was around.
