1. Gaga still makes you think of a toddler instead of a woman with a zipper eye patch urging you to just dance.

2. Pink reminds you of nurseries and tutus, not nose rings and tattoos.

3. Coldplay is how your kid learns to stop forgetting his gloves every time he leaves the house.

4. Black Eyed Peas are, alas, tragically unpopular with tweens.

5. The Pussycat Dolls sound like the perfect holiday presents for your 5-year-old niece.

6. Eminem? A sheer delight, proven to inspire kids to act more politely.

7. Vampire Weekend was that time your 12-year-old saw Twilight, then spent all her waking hours pining for Robert Pattinson (and all her bedtime hours afraid to go to sleep).

8. Nickelback is the cry you hear after the supermarket gumball machine fails to dispense the Mike and Ike candies to your preschooler.

9. Maroon 5 must be that crayon that replaced Burnt Sienna.

10. Linkin Park sounds like an educational family field trip. Why isn't it in the GPS?
