That's why if I ever have a baby, I'm blasting NWA into the womb from the moment of conception until baby turns two. Then they'll be on a strictly John Denver/Kenny Rogers diet until they turn 8, at which point they can listen to whatever they want.
That might not work, Jake. I remember reading a news article about a study on music and kids a while back. They tested kids to see what kinds of music put them at ease, or helped them concentrate, or something, and it tended to be the kind of music their parents liked. The researchers figured the reason might be that the kids were listening to and getting used to their parents toons before birth. (I googled for this briefly but couldn't find it.)
So you might want to use the Denver/Rogers as a threat: "If you don't go to bed this minute, I'm putting on 'Thank God I'm a Country Boy,' junior!"
"Yes, daddy, yes, please, not 'Country Boy'!"
