10. Van Halen - Jump
9. Spiderman Theme - The Ramones
8. Bohemian Rhapsody - The Muppets
7. The Who - Pinball Wizard (and Magic Bus)
This is another classic definitely not to be left out of this top ten: The Who’s Pinball Wizard.
6. AC/DC - Let There Be Rock
5. Foo Fighters - Times Like These (acoustic)
Pinkpop 2015 proved that the Foo Fighters are loved by young and old alike. If you want to keep things a little quieter for your little one, you’re guaranteed to make them happy with this song.
4. Hevisaurus - Juranoid
The Finnish band Hevisaurus’ dinosaur getups are sure to impress children right away. Their music is as far removed from jingly children’s songs as humanly possible, though. Good education if you ask us. The only drawback is that the lyrics are in Finnish.
3 All my friends are insects - Weezer
Looking for a safe way into punk rock for your kids? The band Weezer made this funny rock song, with its hilarious video, a few years ago.
2. Cape of a hero - Volbeat
Obviously, it’s no secret to your kiddo that Daddy’s a superhero ;). This Volbeat track is on the harder side, with a solid groove, meaningful lyrics and nothing that needs to be bleeped out.
1. Smells like a teen spirit - Nirvana
Many 90s parents won't mind at all ... Our number 1. Great stuff to dance to, yell along with and go crazy to, but with a clear message for older kids.
