10 Evil Songs Now Warping Our Toddler's Mind

When you have a kid, certain things are slow to change. For instance, in general you don't immediately throw away your death-metal albums and restock with Barney, because why would you? They don't know what they're listening to dozing in the car seat anyway . So you just go on listening to the same old songs with just a quick mental check to make sure there are no "fucks" involved that they may begin repeating later.

Well, we hope you really like the songs that you say you like, because we promise you there are selections on your playlist that your child will suddenly demand you listen to for the entire duration of the trip, and sometimes they make you wonder just how much damage you're doing to the kid.
