As soccer parents, we spend countless hours in the car with our pre-teen and teenage children. Which also means that we spend an awful lot of time listening to our children’s choices in music.
If the music is being played over the speakers rather than through our children’s ears via Beats by Dre, then at least we can have some conversations about the latest lyrics from Juicy J (which I won’t repeat), Lil Wayne (which I can sometimes repeat), or if by some chance they like country, Taylor Swift (which I can sing every word).
Occasionally, I am pleasantly surprised when I hear “Hey, Mom, listen to this.” Case in point is the video above by The Lonely Biscuits, a band made up of freshmen at Belmont University. No volume changes, muting, or “distract the parents” antics needed on this one. Watch out parents, you might like this just as much as your teenagers. And you just might sing along in the car on your next trip.
