Welcome to Jukebox Jury, our new music debate show where experts face off and a jury of fans decides the winner.
THE CASE: If you’ve ever seen a newborn in a onesie emblazoned with a band’s logo, it’s obvious that the business of marketing adults’ taste in music at their kids is alive and well. Many kids grow up listening to their parents’ music from a very early age, while others are surrounded by songs specifically created with them in mind. Kids’ music, as a genre, has more variety than ever – and more crossover, with bands like Weezer and The Roots appearing on Nickelodeon’s Yo Gabba Gabba!. But do kids specifically need age-appropriate, educational music? Or are they socialized more fully when exposed to adult music?
