Playing Fugazi's Repeater For My Kids: "I Like When They Shout Things"

I've tried to walk the line between imposing my tastes in music on my kids and letting them discover music they enjoy on their own. My tastes are all over the map, so they've gotten a little of everything. My 14-year-old daughter Iris heard a lot of the pop I've mostly ignored through her friends, and came to really like Lady Gaga and some of those emo-pop groups like Owl City in addition to her favorites, the Flaming Lips and the Beatles. But she has mostly left that behind in recent years. Ten-year-old son Lyle, more opinionated and less curious, hasn't sought out music on his own until recently, and loves Skrillex and Green Day, both introduced to him by slightly older friends.
