The kids I know seem to like it all over the place--"What Does the Fox Say" next to "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn" next to "Don't Stop Believing." It kind of seems like the current whatever-you-want-whenever-you-want technology available means that kids are taking a very broad swath.

But that's just my friends' kids group. Why don't you ask the folks at the library? It'll probably get you a good cross-section. :-)



(For me (born 1986), I loved Oldies (60s-70s) and would be mortified to be identified as one of Those People who listened to NSync or Brittany Spears. My little sister (1988) meanwhile crossed genres as quickly as social groups--Blink 182 to Lincoln Park to Darrel Worley--but always the current. My older sister (1981) liked the music favored by folks about five years older than her--all the grunge stuff.

But that's old news. I think the state of technology--not being limited to fairly narrow-band radio stations--is going to encourage different listening.
