Garth Brooks and The Eagles were the only things my dad listened to that I liked. "The Thunder Rolls" was my favorite song growing up. I now have his hits collection and a 5 disc live DVD set.
My mom was more into the adult pop thing, so for a while I liked random stuff like Jimmy Ray, Chumbawamba, Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, etc... Not exactly stuff I listen to now! Then there was more agreeable stuff like Third Eye Blind, Matchbox 20, etc.
Then in middle school Enema of the State
came out and I started exploring music on my own.
