Talk about being a suburban kid growing up in the late '90s early '00s.

My brother bought American Idiot and Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge and hid them from my mom under his bed because we weren't allowed to listen to non-Christian music. When she found them she made him break them with a hammer and grounded him.

And what makes MCR and Green Day not christian music?

96-99 was the golden era of music if you go ahead and ignore all the tripp-pantscore shit mayonnaising up the charts at the time

My parents wouldn't let me buy the Smashmouth album when I was a kid but jokes on them because I dodged a bullet.

But for real, my parents tried really hard to avoid letting me listen to anything with cuss words (maybe that's why I don't cuss myself), but ultimately, it's bound to happen eventually.

Although, by coincidence, most of my music is pretty cuss-free, so when one pops up, it sticks out like a sore thumb. I don't really think it's necessary and it might make me just a teeny bit uncomfortable, but with enough listens I learn to ignore it.

for a while I was only allowed to listen to music from Christian bands, then I could listen to other music, but my mom had to read the lyrics first to make sure it wasn't seducing me to the dark side.

When I was 10/11/12 I listened to a lot of rap. At some point I tried to write down some lyrics of a song I was listening to. Can't remember the song, but I remember it being explicitly sexual. My mom found the paper I'd written it on, asked me if I wrote it and when I shamefully admitted that yes, that's mine, she laughed at me

Not to say my mom liked me swearing or anything, but those lyrics were somehow hilarious to her.

Not being allowed play Halo or GTA Vice City so ended up playing it at friends' houses instead.

Our old street was a big hill so doing Razor or bike races down it was a pretty common thing accompanied by shouts of 'CAR!'

Once walked in on a friend's mum in the shower and was banned from that house for bloody ages.

Living in suburban America was great at Halloween too, about half the houses did some type of elaborate attraction. Like, one guy basically erected a giant tent on his front garden and turned it into a maze, complete with his adult kids jumping out at you. It was great. Halloween in Australia was a massive letdown after that.

All the middle class parents basically throwing house parties two or three nights a week and all the kids upstairs playing Smash Bros

Although once there was this kid whose parents made him come directly home right after school....

That's insane. What did you do about it? Or are you still super religious?


I was going to think of an anecdote for this but I didn't actually grow up 'suburban'. I lived in the city and did whatever I wanted.

If anything I had too much freedom - I used to get the bus or train through places my sister got driven to because it was 'too dangerous'

My parents have always been pretty chill and let me play GTA

I could listen to whatever music I felt like as well, but back then I pretty much only listened to stuff that my parents listened to anyway
I have nothing important to say

Nope. Both my brothers and I got out of religion years ago. My parents have also calmed down a lot and realized that the hardcore religious thing isn't really helping anyone.

So that's nice

I was a kid growing up in the late 70's and 80's by the 90's I was in my 20's. We did not have cell phones or internet to distract us from being kids no pressure from social media etc.

We had good times growing up kids weren't commiting mass murder at school although I did know a 2 or 3 of guys who were shot to death over some bad drug deals which was pretty shocking TBH at that time. We went to scores of concerts movies etc. I saw the original Star Wars trilogy as each movie hit the theater, I still remember when Atari made the first real home gaming console and the birth of cable T.V. good times!

I was a rural kid growing up in the 70's.

I like American Idiot a great deal. Best album of the last 20 years, in my opinion.

eh my parents never tried too hard to keep me from music.

i mean, my dad got me into a lot of the punk bands i still listen to today.

he regretted suggesting Black Flag to me when he actually listened to some for the first time since he was a teenager, but he never really tried to stop me from listening to anything.

he did used to poorly attempt to self censor his Limp Bizkit album when we were in the car by turning the volume down then up real quick, but 9 times out of ten he did it too fast and you'd hear a loud "fuck" anyway.

closest thing to this topic is my parents' weird secrecy about homosexuality.

wasnt allowed to see Big Daddy when i was younger purely because of a scene where two guys kissed.

was also not allowed to watch the Simpsons for a year or two after one episode mentioned lesbians or something.

My dad used to be a pastor. My parents have generally calmed down with the religion but I still gotta go to church every Sunday. They don't know I'm an atheist.

My parents got me American Idiot for my birthday in 2004 lol.
My very first concert was My Chemical Romance & Alkaline Trio in 2005.
In 2005 I heard Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols for the first time & it was all over.

My dad would always take us to (Catholic) mass when I was a kid, but then we would drive by (Protestant) churches & he'd make fun of "holy rollers" & "bible thumpers" lol.
My parents were never too concerned about me hearing "bad" music, I got into Nirvana because my mom had a copy of Nevermind lol.
Not that Nirvana is "bad" per se, but like, they can be dark.
Don't get me wrong, they are weird-o conservatives who hate my left-liberal values, they are just not particularly religious conservatives.

as someone whose grandfather is a wannabe southern reverend, i think i can see why he wouldn't wanna bother.

i never even told my family explicitly what i did/didn't believe and they all call me an atheist.

my favorite part is listening in on conversations had about me from the other room as if i can't hear.

"oh he's just going through a phase" "he'll come back to it"

lol

its been going on since i was about 18 and im 24 now.

It'd become a huge argument and it'd destroy my parents 'cause they'd think their son is going to Hell. I don't really see an upside.

It's an okay album, but boulavard of broken dreams was so overplayed it made me wanna blow my brains out, and it was one of the weaker songs on the album.

I grew up listening to my dads rock records, ie black sabbath, judas priest, pink floyd, dio, gun/roses, and joe satriani. They didn't give a shit what I listened too.

My parents never go to church, and never pushed anything religious on me.

I'd stay up and watch porn on movie channels when I was 6 (my parents did not know this,) but I was allowed to watch southpark from the age of 7.

Your parents were all too strict.
