Pop culture appears to be changing with the times. Kids these days know “Rolling in the Deep,” but not The Rolling Stones. A recent survey of 2,000 parents with young kids finds 6 to 12-year-olds were more likely to identify the famous Adele hit than the iconic rock and roll band (41% vs. 28%).
Fifty-seven percent of music-loving parents are teaching their kids to appreciate the same tunes they enjoyed in their youth. Among their playlist picks? Celine Dion (42%), followed by Whitney Houston (39%), Madonna (38%), and the Backstreet Boys (34%).
Curating a multigenerational playlist may take some effort, though, as nearly half (47%) of parents can’t stand their kids’ favorite music. That may be why parents struggled to recognize the band “Fifth Harmony,” with just 24 percent identifying an image of the girl group that broke the record for most Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in 2018.
Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Kahoot!, the survey not only shows that they and their kids have a lot to learn about each other’s interests but that doing so could be an effective way to bring families closer together. Results found kids tend to get excited when their parents take an interest in or show knowledge about something they like, according to 63 percent of adults. Three in five parents (61%) are eager to learn more about their kids’ hobbies or interests.
