    Beatles and Elvis were at the top. Also the Stones, Credence, Floyd, Skynard, a lot of the girl groups of the 60s and Motown oldies. They had a huge record collection that I used to just look at over and over. I remember thinking the Sgt Pepper cover (and the picture disk) was the coolest thing ever, and the color disks (red and blue set) from the Beatles were amazing. The Wall had a lot of scenes from the movie. I think It was a Stones album where you could pull an insert from inside the cover and it would change what was in the cutout windows. They also had the Skynard "Street Survivors" album that came out I believe right before the plane crash and a couple members who died had fire coming out of their heads... They eventually released an edited version after the controversy and I think the original has decent value.

    So many cool records I remember.



    Nm It was Led Zep - Physical Grafitti

    My dad loved 70s rock. Always playing Zeppelin, UFO, The Guess Who (to name the top 3). He listened to a lot of Alice in Chains as well.

    My mom listed to more 80s stuff. Meatloaf was a great one growing up to and Hootie and the Blowfish was always on. At one stage she was a big country fan. Glad she's not anymore.

    They both loved the Beatles.

    Ha. I knew it was Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin as soon as you mentioned the windows.

    Good chance of that, yes. For my parents, Steve Miller Band, Doobie Brothers, and Led Zeppelin come to mind.

    My father swears by the Brits invasion.
    He listens to Beatles & Stones, but when he was younger he always talks about growing up at LA Forum with Who, Clash, Floyd, Ramones, and many others.

    My mom remembers Joplin & Hall & Oates

    My mom likes the Beatles and Motown. My grandfather made my mom sell her front row Beatles tickets because he was afraid she'd get trampled. She went to the show, but with seats much further from the stage.

    My dad... I don't know what he liked when younger but he became a truck driver and listened to country. I do remember him rocking out to Twisted Sister when he bought a car after the divorce.

    My Dad is all about classic rock.

    Led Zepplin
    Three Dog Night
    The Beatles
    Pink Floyd
    The Eagles
    Skynard
    Fleetwood Mac (my sister is named Stevie, so yeah....)

    basically, that is all he listens to. My opinion of classic rock- around 10-15% of it is awesome, the rest sucks.

    My Mom, loved Motown, Michael Jackson, etc. The only thing that got her moving was Motown. The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, the Commodores, etc. That was her jam.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Growing up around my dad in the 90s I would say his 3 favorite bands were:
    Aerosmith
    Boston
    Third Eye Blind

    Third Eye Blind was my dad's "I'm recently divorced in my 30s with 4 kids but I'm still cool" phase.

    He now listens to a lot of electronic music. He likes Deep House.

    ^All of that.

    Our vacation road trips were spent listening to cassettes of Simon and Garfunkel's Central Park concert, the Woodstock album and then some mixture of 50's and 60's music.
