There's no doubt that what your parents listened to when you were growing up has had some sort of an impact on what you listen to now, though I'm not totally sure it's always as clear-cut as this graphic makes it. Instead of listening to something vaguely derivative of Jimmy Buffett, I think I was so overdosed on him by Parrothead parents as a kid that I purposely avoided anything remotely close to his music as an adult. But since Jimmy Buffett isn't an option on this chart, I guess we'll never know.

I listened to Judas Priest in high school, which my dad haaaaaaaaaaaaaated. :)
