What kinds of music is he into?

I would use some of the slower type songs from some of the bands you have listened for the chill out time [like matchbox 20… back to good would be a good option].

Here’s a list of some random artists you might be interested in :

3 Days Grace

Alien Ant Farm

Billie Myers [mainly Kiss the Rain, probably the most well-known song of hers]

Breaking Benjamin [Diary of Jane]

Brookes & Dunn [burning bridges would be a good option for a slower type song]

Buckcherry – Sorry

Daughtry – Pretty much anything of his, lol

Collective Soul [My personal favorite is Shine]

Counting Crows – Mr Jones

The Wallflowers – One Headlight


David Cook – Light On

Default – Wasting My Time

Duncan Sheik – Barely Breathing

Eagle Eye Cherry [Falling in Love Again or Save Tonight]

Edwin McCain – I’ll Be

Ellie Goulding – Lights

Eve 6 – Here’s to the Night

Fallout Boy [Most well known would probably be Thanks for the Memories]

Flo Rida – Good Feeling

Florirda Georgia Line – Cruise [With or without Nelly]

Fuel – Buttersweet, Hemmorage, Shimmer, or Falls on me

Godsmack – Voodoo

Goo Goo Dolls – Iris, Slide, Name

Gym Class Heros – Cupud’s Chokehold

HIM – Wicked Game [or the older version]

John Mayer – Half of my Heart

Kenney Chesney – When the Sun Goes Down or How Forever Feels

Kid Rock – All Summer Long

Lifehouse – Hanging by a Moment

Linkin Park [really, anything by them]

LIT – My own Worst Enemy

Maroon 5 – Sunday morning, She will be Loved



Owl City – Fireflies

Papa Roach

Parachute – The Mess I made

Passenger – Let her Go

Puddle of Mudd – Blurry

Rob Thomas – This is how a heart breaks

Saving Abel – New tattoo or 18 days

Sugar Ray – Fly

The Calling – Wherever you will go

The Script – Breakeven

The Spill Canvas – Our Song or All over You

Theory of a Dead Man – All of nothing

Third Eye Blind – how it’s going to be or jumper

Trap – Headstrong

Uncle Kracker – Smile

Vertical Horizon – Everything you want

A Change of Pace – Weekend Warriors


Now, I completely skipped over anything metal/metalcore or screamo, and anything super pop/today, and rap. So if you want any of that stuff let me know and I’ll add it!

@Brickette:  You could always used censored versions if you really want to play the rap stuff.

Okay, I’ll give you similiar arts to the ones you posted, maybe that’ll help.

Similiar to Disturbed are : Godsmack, breaking benjamin, five finger death punch, drowning pool, three days grace, system of a down, bullet for my valentine & stone sour.

Some of those bands do have swear words, but I know there are a few songs for each that don’t have swear words.. and Stone Sour is thought by many of their listeners to be Christian [although they are not], I don’t think they have a whloe lot of swearing.

I’m just going to skip over eminem because quite frankly, anything close to him isn’t going to be appropriate for kids… lol

Similiar to Dave Mathews Band are : Counting Crows, Hootie & the Blowfish, Phish & Blues Travelers.

All of these are pretty kid friendly, but I’d listen to each song beforehand to make sure.

Since he likes disturbed, he may be interested in metal or metalcore, some artists try would be :

Atreyu – The Crimson

Underoath – Blood on my hands

Hollywood Undead – City [this is like a cross between metal & rap]

Issues – King of Armarillo or Princeton Ave

Sleeping with Sirens – Can’t Hang

Jamie’s Elsewhere – They said a storm was coming or the lighthouse

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – Face down or disconnected

Bring me the Horizon


And just for kicks, try 6 AM – the band consists of niki sixx from motley crue and they are actually pretty good!

Oh, the band is called Sixx AM not 6 am, you might not get the right back if you don’t use the right name – don’t feel like messing with my post to edit it [because of how messed up the post gets when you edit].
