So............my parents hate songs that have screaming in them. Even bands such as chiodos and the fall of troy (which is mellowish screaming) they dont let me play through the computer. It's not becuase they dont want to hear it, its because they think it makes me crazy

I have to play them through my ipod just to hide it from them and when school starts and I get to doing homework (sometimes for an hour or so) I dont want to damage my ears and I want to play them through the computer.

How can I convince my parents to let me listen to the music I like?

What are your techniques for convincing parents?

My parents just let me listen to what I want. I play Between the Buried and Me and some hardcore, and my Dad takes the piss all the time, but he seriously doesn't mind me listening to it. Your parents are morons.

my dad just says im an emo cause i listen to devil driver and stuff like that.

look up some lyrics that are not too ****ed up and read them to youre mum show her that theres nothing wrong with it its just the style of music you like.
pull the teenager card and say its a phase i always do that except now with music
#15
They're clearly not used to it and they genuinely think that its evil or somthing. Try ur best to explain to them that its not. show them some lyrics or somthing. if they still dont then just hide it from them. u wont mess up ur ears if its not too loud
#16
Play I cum Blood over and over intill they decide that what you listen to is better then that.

They probably actually do dislike the sound...I know I do...


Anyway, you COULD try turning the volume down on your headphones. It's not like using headphones=INSTANT DEAFNESS!!! or anything.

My mom doesn't mind when I do that at all. Between the Buried and Me, Opeth, The Black Dahlia Murder, she doesn't care at all.

How old are you, kid? Fourteen, fifteen? Live at home? Explain that you like the music, and that it doesn't make you want to fight vikings, rape your defeated enemy's womenfolk, burn villages, cum blood, etc. Even if it does. If that doesn't work, Do as you're fucking told, you won't convince them.

Their house, their computer most likely, their rules. They don't want that music played on their stuff, in their house, tough titties cowboy. You have an iPod, use it. If you're worried about ear damage, turn the volume down, and get hold of a pair of over-ear headphones. It'll sound better anyhow.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

I would't want to listen to that kind of music so i agree with your parents.

He didn't ask for your opinion on his musical tastes. He asked how to get across to his parents.

On topic, just listen to it. They most likely will just keep complaining but I doubt they will get overly angry and force you to change your interests. Just don't crank the volume when you listen to it. Eventually they will stop bothering you.

Just don't go get in trouble: they will blame the music.

The best thing to do is to holdf your breath until it really jolly well hurts.
That'll show them!

This is just that classic argument over whether rock is satanic or damages kids minds or blah blah blah. It's always gonna happen. Maybe not so much nowadays, but it does. And for people who criticize his genre, **** up. I'm willing to bet there's a million or more people who hate what the **** you listen to.

I dont want to damage my ears

Obvious solution for anyone:
IPOD at a reasonable volume.

Or slowly get them into 70's Judas Priest, then into Iron Maiden, and then into heavier stuff.

Actually, don't. They will start laughing at you later.

Just keep it down low.

Nothing you can really do about it right now. You're in your parents house and you must abide by their rules while you still live there. So either move out, or keep your damn earphones in....doesn't it make sense??? Jeeeeez........
Why look a man in the eye when you can shoot him in the back?

If you can't convince them; confuse them.

Ipod at reasonable volumes

If there's no such thing as bad music, then it stands to reason there is also no good music - thus there would be only music.
