How Music Taste is Inherited [infographic]

June 28, 2011 |  by  |  Lifestyle

As people grow into their refined music tastes, moving from top 40 hits to alternative rock stations and beyond, one might wonder how they formed their preferences. Maybe your parents blasting old records had more of an influence than you once thought. Because STYX, Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd aren’t included, my music taste is untraceable, but maybe this infographic will ring true to you. [Via]

    cake, new order, 90′s rock, lots of cursing. my mom went more aucoustic. i’m into alternative and indie rock. some songs still remind me of riding in the car with my dad, all the windows down, my hair blowing everywhere, him trying to mumble the lyrics. big influence.

    My dad is Nigerian, so……
    I listen to folk, folk-rock, indie pop, and “some” R&B (preferably alternative). I used to be a heavy R&B listener back in middle and high school, but it’s so Top 40 for my taste now.
