    These parents are made to listen to modern music and they have to guess who sings and what the name of the song is. I played along and I did not know a SINGLE one out of the 7 they played.

    It helps a lot when you have kids... they MAKE you listen to this stuff. But my daughter only uses headphones and she doesn't listen to modern stuff anyway.

    How many songs can you name on this video?

    I knew the Uptown Funk one and the Fallout Boy one. Mainly because I'm friends with a chick who still listens to a lot of this. That's better than I expected to do.

    About half of them, and most of them suck.

    The last artists that came out that I love/like:
    - Adele
    - Amy Winehouse
    - Kendrick Lamar



    Last artists that I respect, but haven't gravitated towards:
    - Rhiana (only know her songs by the voice)
    - Calle 13
    - Not big names:
    - Beware of Darkness (checkout: Howl)
    - Slow Club (checkout: Don't Call Me Kid)​


    I know who they are, and they're mostly just a gimmick:
    - Selena Gomez (not bad)
    - Katie Perry
    - Justin Beaver
    - Not Garth Brooks, but the other guy, his daughter
    - Drake


    Don't even know what they look like:
    - Kyle Minogue-sounding name
    - Lady Gah Gah
    - One Direction(?)
    - random Rapper-du jour (skinny jeans-wearing, punk-fcuks)

    Lady Gaga is leaps and bounds better than any other artist you listed.

    Short answer: "No"

    Unless you include Slayer's latest album.

    How can you doubt something when you are ignorant?

    Not everyone knows who she was before she was famous and how incredibly brilliant her career is.

    I knew the Bruno Mars song but didn't know Mark Ronson wrote it. I've heard that Sia song but didn't ID it before one of the parents said it.

    Only one I didn't know had both Big Sean and Drake in it, so I regret nothing.

    Sia is awesome.

    Fall Out Boy somehow keeps getting worse - and I'm usually a fan of that genre.

    Only modern hip hop, artists like Schoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, The Underachievers, and Chance the rapper are awesome. Could've listed more but it would take me awhile.
